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!
Few in his family take Gwenvael seriously, but his very pregnant sister-in-law, Queen Annwyl, has
an important assignment for him: Gwenvael is to be her representative
in brokering an alliance with the Northlanders and the Beast.
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)
