Dragon Bound (Elder Races #1) by Thea Harrison
What is it about:
Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful - and passionate - of the Elder races.
As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in each other.
Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave - although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul ...
What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
A more than enjoyable Paranormal Romance. The world building is interesting, the story enticing, the men hot, the romance even hotter. Harrison manages to create a more than decent action storyline entwining with the romance storyline that kept me just as engrossed as the romance. I loved Dragos to bits and really like how Harrison manages to make his personally slightly alien, so that him being a dragon doesn't only show in his ability to shapeshift into a dragon, but also in how he acts. The one thing that I could say against this book is that I had some trouble with Pia's voice at first. It took me a couple of chapters before I felt comfortable with her, but from there on I was hooked and couldn't put the book down before finishing it.
Why should you read it:
It's an awesome story with a smoking hot dragon
