Publisher's Summary

In exchange for a vial of dragon's blood to save her brother's life, Melanie Hall offers herself up as a sacrifice to one of the British dragon-shifter clans. Being a sacrifice means signing a contract to live with the dragon-shifters for six months to try to conceive a child. Her assigned dragonman, however, is anything but easy. He's tall, broody, and alpha to the core. There's only one problem - he hates humans.
Due to human dragon hunters killing his mother, Tristan MacLeod despises humans. Unfortunately, his clan is in desperate need of offspring to repopulate their numbers and it's his turn to service a human female. Despite his plans to have sex with her and walk away, his inner dragon has other ideas. The curvy human female tempts his inner beast like no other.

Awesome!! I loved it.

I have listened to over 200 audio books over the last 3 years and this is the first one I felt compelled to review. I loved the characters and their very human interactions. I will defiantly listen to more by this author.

Hey Dragon Man!

If Michelle Pillow writes light romantic books, Jessie Donovan turns the intensity up by 2 or 3 degrees.

This is my first Jessie Donovan book, but I'm quickly buying the rest of them on Audible. I just love the premise that these stories are built around. A beleaguered enclave of dragon shifters live in a tenuous truce with humanity. Their blood is much sought after, as it can heal most human illnesses, but in order for the humans to get some, they have to 'sacrifice' compatible human females willing submit for the purpose of procreation. (Female dragons are very rare, and in order to grow their population, the dragons have no choice but to mate with human females if they want to have children.)

There are some huge plot holes in this set up, (where are all the women? Why don't the humans attack in greater numbers and just take the blood?), but I'm willing to play along and hope that the missing bits are served up in subsequent books. (Like why they're called "British dragons." Other than the Scots brogue they have, the human women and the secondary characters, are all American.)

This episode finds Melanie Hall arriving at the enclave as the most recent sacrifice, and she has only volunteered in order to get the dragon blood to save her dying brother. Once we know this however, she doesn't bother to get in touch with her brother to make sure he's been cured, even though it's a call she could have made. That was kinda the whole point, right? Like I said, plot holes.

I have a ton of questions like these, and that would ordinarily drive me crazy. But I really loved this book. I think it's because the MCs are so well written, and their emotions just ring true. I got invested in the story, and that saved the book for me.

So . . . IF you can get past the plot holes, the writing is great. I particularly appreciated hearing the conversation between Tristan's human part and the dragon inside. The voice and dialogue for the dragon is hilarious -- all id -- and gives the book an originality I haven't seen before.

Matthew Lloyd Davies gives a great performance, and brings Tristan's dragon to ingenious life. It's worth the price of admission just to hear that dragon's dirty talk!

Highly Recommended
