WHAT A DRAGON SHOULD KNOW
Using her patented blend of sexy and outrageous humor, Aiken gifts readers with the saga of the delightfully vain dragon Gwenvael the Handsome and her newest heroine, a crafty liar who uses knowledge as her weapon. The wonderfully wacky and perverse nature of Aiken's stories and characters are guaranteed to produce laughs. She has really hit her stride!
Turns out the Beast is actually the very human Dagmar Reinholdt, whose clever mind and scheming have helped protect her father, the warlord Reinholdt. To Gwenvael's shock, bespectacled Dagmar appears immune to his devastating good looks. She does, however, respond to his crafty nature. Melting this repressed young woman is a task Gwenvael relishes. Unfortunately, there is treachery afoot that could imperil both Gwenvael's and Dagmar's families. (ZEBRA, Sep., 350 pp., $6.99)
