Publisher's Summary

"To be ruled by a woman is to be ruled by weakness and kingdoms are only as strong as their rulers. A king must stand alone, beholden to none." - King Attor of the Var
Agent Ulyssa Payne is on a mission. It's her job to make sure the Medical Mafia leader doesn't leave the planet of Qurilixen. But, when her target is killed by his own daughter, her mission is over. Now, she's stuck on a barbarian planet for three months until the Agency comes to get her.
Getting kidnapped by King Attor, she's left in the Var harem to await his return. But, when the King dies in battle and doesn't come for her, she's stuck dealing with his son, the new savage King of the Var. This is one complication Ulyssa didn't need.
A royal complication.
The Var Princes were raised by a hard man who put no stock in love - especially love with one woman. Bred to never take a life mate, these men will do everything in their power to live up to the dead King Attor's expectations and never fall in love.
Kirill is a man who must do his duty, only he didn't expect to do it so soon. When his father dies, he knows it's his destiny to be king. What he didn't expect is the troublesome mistress that's now his to deal with.

Loved the book... And the cover..

I can’t say I’ve read too many “other” planet books but the ones I’ve read I’ve enjoyed. This one is no different. My only complaint, and I can’t believe I’m going to say this, is that there was too much sex. According to “Jane’s Data” (another reviewer) there were 7 sex scenes and they took up 29 pages. That’s way too much for a 228 page book. When there’s that much sex that’s when I start skimming, and that’s never a good thing. Ms. Pillow is a good writer but she needs to concentrate more on the story and less on the sex. Of the 7 sex scenes I read 2 of them, and by then I’d had enough and zipped right over the rest.

Other than that it was a good book. I especially liked the part where Ulyssa took her first bath ever. She was used to a decontaminator, not an actual a water bath. Her reaction to it after she’d been in it a while was hysterical, and scared Kirill half to death. It was all pretty funny.

I liked the mess Kirill’s mind was in, thanks to his father’s teachings. Wow, I was sure dear-old-dad was dead when the story started. Him never showing Ulyssa any affection in public did get annoying but he did have to un-learn all that his father had crammed into Kirill’s brain his whole life. It was nice watching him slowly come awake, in how to treat the one you love.

I liked his brothers, too, but I liked Falke the best. He was the biggest and the blandest of the lot.

As mentioned before there was LOTS of sex, and he!! and da*n was used a very few times and the F-bomb was let lose 1 time.

As to the narrator: He was terrific. He really, really laughed when the book called for it. He whispered, groaned, sniffed when Ulyssa was crying. He was simply superb when it came to his wide variety of emotions. Every single man had his own voice and the women couldn’t have sounded more feminine if they’d been done by a female narrator.

Pretty darn steamy..characters were likable!

Would you listen to The Savage King: A Dragon Lords Story again? Why?

So, I listened to The Savage King: Lords of the Var, not sure why it says A Dragon Lords Story. It was a fun easy listen. Great while driving to work. I liked all the characters too. No one was an ass.

What other book might you compare The Savage King: A Dragon Lords Story to and why?

it's pretty unique, at least for me. I don't normally read other planet books.

Which scene was your favorite?

All the two main character scenes! They were fun and playful.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Sure, but I didn't.
