Publisher's Summary

Cara Truman is a pint-size pistol whose inquisitive nature has gotten her into trouble on more than one occasion. Her next adventure takes her further than she even expected when she ends up on a journey out of this world.
Trelon Reykill thought he had his hands full. A militant group of Curizans captured his brother Zoran, he's busy fortifying the Valdire defenses against the Sarafin warriors, and his dragon is roaring for him to find a mate. The last thing he expects to find on the primitive planet his brother has taken refuge on is his true mate.
Now Trelon must capture Cara long enough to make her his, but his symbiosis loves her, his dragon wants her, and someone is trying to kill her. Trelon must love Cara so well that she will never want to escape him - if he can catch her.

Pint-sized Spaz attracts a Dragon Alien. Fun!

Again, as I noted in my last review, this series can't be taken too seriously. If you understand it's a bit on the ridiculous side, it's a load of fun.

In the last book Abby was abducted by an alien dragon. And what single, hunky, alien doesn't have a lot of single, hunky brothers? They might need some single gorgeous ladies... and oh hey, they kidnapped a handful when they took Abby.

Cara is a super-hyper ADHD insomniac that acts like she's part 3-year-old part rocket scientist. Maybe a little evil genius thrown in. She's an orphan, which I mentioned before, is awfully handy when you get abducted. Her only friends who would miss her were abducted too so there ya go! Now she's buzzing around the spaceship of a dragon race, tearing apart things and improving them, because learning space technology takes a matter for a few sleepless nights.

Meanwhile, half way through, she starts allowing the hunky dragon-shifting alien man, who's been drooling for her since the moment he took her, into her pants. Then he screws up in very typical misunderstood fashion. And of course, there's a pregnancy in the mix because melodrama just doesn't work without the poor female being knocked up. And last but certainly not least, the evil guys are still mustache-twirling and plotting.

I like this story. It's quirky, and Cara is a hoot. Don't take it too seriously and you'll enjoy spending a credit.

It seems everyone except the handsome Dragon Lord Trelon wished they hadn't captured Cara because the pint sized, feisty, energetic Engineering Genius was never where she should be but rather was always where she shouldn't be and she was forever causing trouble and mayhem on board. But the likeable Cara just couldn't help herself.... she loved messing around with technology and all the new gadgetry and circuit boards were just begging for her attention.... and she had plenty of time never needing more than just a few hours of sleep a night, together with consuming buckets full of caffeine, she was like a possessed kid in a Candy Store. And poor Trelon and his Dragon just wanted desperately to claim and mate with her but he always had to catch her first.

I must admit I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the previous book as the focus seemed to be more on the fun parts rather than the romance. Oh, don't get me wrong, it did have its sexy and romantic times but Cara, together with Trelon's willing symbiot, brought humor, mischief and innocent antics to the listen which made it more of a funny caper rather than a love story. However, there was also drama, angst, a bitter scheming ex, some heartache and terror caused by their evil enemies the Curizans.

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, a good male narrator, plenty of descriptive funny scenes which gave great mental imagery as Cara re-wired, re-programmed and re-invented while on board the space ship and the rest of the story was very enjoyable too so YES creditworthy as long as you're prepared for the exasperating Cara!!
