Publisher's Summary

An unlucky bride..
Riona Grey lives life on her own terms, traveling wherever the next spaceship is flying and doing what she must in order to get by. When her luck turns sour, she finds herself on a bridal ship heading to a marriage ceremony. A planet full of dragon shifters seeking mates wasn’t exactly what she had in mind as a final destination. Just when she thinks things couldn’t possibly get worse, she wakes up months later in an isolation chamber with a sexy, hovering dragon shifter by her side telling her they’re meant to be together…forever.
The impatient groom...
After years of failed marriage attempts at the Breeding Festivals, the gods finally revealed Lord Mirek’s bride…a day too late. Eager to have her, he defied tradition and laid claim. But it is a mistake to go against the gods and his new wife was the one to pay the price of his impatience.
Now almost a year later, his bride is finally waking from her deep sleep. With one look from her, he feels the eagerness to claim her overtaking him once more. Fearful she’ll slip through his grasp once again, he’s hesitant to anger the gods by taking her to his bed too soon. But, how can he resist the one thing that would make his life complete, especially when she looks at him with eyes of a seductress? This is one test he can’t fail, and yet with one of her sweet kisses he knows he may already have lost.

Fun book

The Impatient Lord is book 8 of the Dragon Lords series by Michelle M. Pillow. It tells the love story of Riona Grey and Dragon shifter
Lord Miroslav (Mirek), Ealdorman of Draig.

Having a bit of bad luck, Riona finds herself and her sister Aeron on the Galaxy Brides ship to become dragon shifters mates. Riona bribes one of the ship crew into allowing her to skip the bridal viewing with plans of boarding another ship after the joining feast. But her sister is picked as a bride. So now she makes plans to save her. Lord Mirek is there trying for the forth time to find a bride and is heart broken again when he does not find one in the amongst the brides. While at the Festival Mirek sees Riona and his crystal glows. The attraction is instantaneous and he knows she is his but they missed the ceremony to be joined so he must go before the queen to be joined. Unfortunately, Riona runs into more bad luck when she has a allergic reaction to a plant resulting in a drug induced coma for several months. Mirek blames himself for her illness. He thinks he is being punished by his god for not waiting and having a proper bridal ceremony.

I loved this book. This series!!! Ms. Pillow has a gift for writing stories that are full of humor, silliness, love, sexy shifters, action, intrigue surprises and so much more. I call her one of my Happy-book writers because reading her books just makes you happy. It leaves you feeling like you just watched a really good romantic comedy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll curse, you'll cheer.

I so recommend this book. This series!!!

A Love Worth Waiting For

What did you love best about The Impatient Lord?

I loved how dedicated Lord Mirek is to Riona while she is in a coma and after she awakens. Mirek fell in love with her the minute he sees her and find his crystal glowing. That love shows in how he does everything he can while she is sleeping.

What did you like best about this story?

Watching how Riona discovers her love for Mirek and overcome her fear of loving someone. She is so so afraid to love and doesn't want to rely on anyone because bad things always happened when she does.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Riona negotiated with the Lithorian dignitary. It was so funny to hear Mirek's reaction when she declared peace with them and did away with all the formalities so that the negotiations for the Lithorian chocolate was so fast and smooth.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A love worth waiting for

Any additional comments?

The eighth book in the Dragon Lords series is a wonderful conclusion for the Royal family and their kin.

Riona Grey is a gambler. She tries to live her life to the fullest and isn't afraid of taking chances. She feels she must do this because she and her sister are the last of their kind. After her sister interrupts her during the final hand of a game (which she loses), Riona must find a way off the station immediately since she cannot cover the debt and her sister needs her help in getting the the planet of Qurilixian to stop a genocide. After ditching the Federation ship her sister came on, Riona signs them both up with Galaxy Brides since that is the only ship that she can find that is going there. Riona has no intention of being a bride and slips off of the ship before the Breeding Festival begins. Little does she know that trying to avoid the Gods will doesn't stop her from finding a husband.

Lord Mirek is not looking forward to this year's Breeding Festival. He has had so many failed attempts at finding his bride that he has lost hope. The little hope he has is shattered when his crystal doesn't glow. He stays the night on a cliff overlooking the festival grounds morning another unsuccessful festival. The following morning he packs up his camp site and heading down the cliff. As he gets to the bottom, he hears the faint sound of footsteps and decides to follow the sound. He comes upon Riona as she is spying on her sister and instantly feels a connection to her. He cannot believe his luck and doesn't give her a chance to refuse him. He convinces Riona to break his crystal but she cuts herself when it shatters. She starts feeling ill and tries to run while Mirek goes to get her a drink but ends up falling into the "yellow" which puts her into a sleep that she cannot awaken from.

It takes almost a year for Riona to awaken from the sleep. Mirek does everything he can to keep her comfortable and taken care of until she awakens. He is so dedicated to her the entire time she is asleep. Riona has a hard time adjusting to her new life and the changes she sees in her sister. Mirek is there for her the entire time and does everything he can to make her adjustment easier.

This was a wonderful conclusion to a great series. I have completely enjoyed listening to the entire series and would highly recommend this.
