Publisher's Summary

For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by - wait for it - a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she's the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he's in for a surprise.
Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he'd counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It's embarrassing, really, that it isn't this outspoken female's magicks that have the realm's greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different, and if he doesn't tread carefully, what he doesn't know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race.

What the Critics Say

"The second installment in Aiken's trilogy (Dragon Actually, 2008) follows in the quirky, humorous tradition of Xena, offering a welcome high fantasy with modern sensibilities." (Booklist)

I LOVE G A Aiken.

Would you try another book from G. A. Aiken and/or Hollie Jackson?

I have read all the Laurenston/Aiken books multiple times. She is a fabulous writer if you like quick, dry wit, great dialogue and funny stories and characters. Sadly- she has not had any luck with her idiot publishers finding a narrator that can 1) pronounce the names( when in doubt-ASK! They really aren't hard, you just have to ask. Or Google!) 2) parlay her excellent writing with good pacing and voices. And Hollly REALLY misses this mark. This is just frustrating. Her voices are terrible and it just makes this awesome read so difficult to listen to.


What did you like best about this story?

The story is excellent!


What didn’t you like about Hollie Jackson’s performance?

Poor interpretation of the dialogue, wrong pronunciation of the names, and while this story is witty- she just says the lines flatly. I hope they didn't pay her a lot of money to do this, it was wasted. And it is the publisher's fault- people don't realize that the author doesn't have control over who they get to read her book. Sadly, Shelly doesn't deserve her wonderful writing to be so poorly interpreted..


What character would you cut from About a Dragon?

The narrator- the book is fine as written.


Any additional comments?

What are the publishers thinking? How hard it is to find a good narrator?

- Ms. Terry Lunney

Bravo to a wonderfully action packed erotic story

This happens to be a bwwm love story but without actually using race as a label. The story is part of the series of stories about the rolay family of dragons. The writing is funny, snarky & colorful. The eroctia scene are not too crass & the drama is well place.. G.A. Aiken (Shelly L) is one of the most gifted & entertaining writers around. The characters range in different personallities, skin tone, cultures and gender roles. Any story by this author is a wise decision.. I will continue following the series & any other stories this author writes.
