Dragon-shifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates—so much so they’re taking matters into their own hands. What better place to capture a woman than Earth? After all, dragon-shifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself?

While on Earth, Kyran stumbles upon the most beautiful woman he’s ever imagined, singing something the natives call rock ’n’ roll. His blood simmers and he knows Eve is the one for him. But taming this feisty female is going to take much more than his training prepared him for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bridal Shop Eve Minot is the lead singer and plays guitar in a rock band. The bands current gig is a club in Cleveland, Ohio. Eve's home is a trailer she travels in and her friends are her band members, all female except for Paul, on drums. It's Eve's birthday and she's playing her guitar and belting out an "in your face," song. She loves it! Prince Kryan, of Draig, (the elder of 4 brothers), lives in a castle with his family, on the Draig Mountains. The Draig, and the neighboring Var, live on the planet Qurilixien; they left Earth centuries ago, for their very survival. Now, they must revisit Earth. Since leaving Earth, both Draig and Var, have fewer and fewer female births each year. The situation is critical! They are honorable races and need wives for fulfillment and procreation. They've decided to send a group of four men to seek a wife for Kryan, as a test! It's a good story with a solid plot. There was an intensity lacking, maybe due to the novella format. The action scenes at the end were too fast and the suspense leading up to it was rushed. Looking forward to the next work by Ms. Pillow. I received this book free for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS A MUST BUY BOOK! I loved this. This is a must buy book. One thing I just loved about this story is that you get so caught up in the story that you just read it from cover to cover. It is that good. If you are looking for a book that you can just be swept away into an emotional love story, this book is for you. One that you will probably read again and again, just like I will. Have fun with this one, as it is fun, exciting, loving, and of course hot shape shifters. I got lost into the story, and I did not want it to end. I don't normally do reviews, but as a Mom who reads just for enjoyment, I have to say that this is a MUST BUY book. Everyone so often you find a book that just grabs you. This one grabbed me and I know I am going to be reading this one over and over. I just loved this which is why I gave it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! Great book! It was so fun to watch a modern woman from Earth try to fit in with a bunch of dragon shifters. What would you do if you found out that there were fewer and fewer females being born? The shifters of Qurilixen decided to go back to their home world to get them. They would begin with the princes of the Draig and Var first. Prince Kyran of the Draig if the very first one to go to Earth to find a bride. I couldn't help but laugh when we find out how they four Princes (two Draig and two Var) were dressed when they first arrive at the bar where Eve's band is playing. There was no missing them in that crowd. Prince Kyran is so patient when it comes to Eve and here unwillingness to accept that she is in another world. He is willing to do almost anything for her...except return her to Earth. It was great to see how she finally comes to accept him only to be thrown back to Earth by someone that doesn't want their race polluted with alien DNA. Kyran will do anything to get her back and she will do whatever it takes to get back to him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful beginning of a new series Determined Prince is the delightful beginning of a new series. Five star. This is a prequel series, before dragon shifters and cat shifters changed from friends to enemies. Eve is singing in a band and allowing herself to drink this one day of the year—her birthday-- she meets dragon shifter Prince Kyran who has come for a bride. Rocker Eve thinks he's hot and talks funny, but with enough tequila she can ignore the conversation. Until she wakes up and she's not in “Kansas” anymore. Can a rocker from Cleveland become a princess? Can a staid Prince adapt to a feisty human female? These are not the only problems. The stronger question is how do his people feel about such a match? Or are there enemies ready to do anything to prevent such a match? I only have one problem with this book—WHERE IS THE NEXT ONE? I was provided an ARC from the author for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read this in the Taming Alpha box set From the first page few paragraphs, I was already lmao. The King and Queen were hilarious and I kind of wished I got to see more of the King. In this new and exciting book, it begins the story of how The Draig and Var began getting wives before there was trading through the galaxy. I found this book to be quite enjoyable, funny and a quick read (I want more!!). The Var and Draig were friends ..woe :O Could you believe that?! Their friendship and easy going relationship brought a new atmosphere to these books. The Var when teamed up with the Draig to find wives was just the start of an awesome adventure. I found the cowboy, the ninja, the sailor, and the outlaw biker to be a group I would gladly invite to any party. He's a little bit country and she's a little bit rock n roll. Heck who are we kidding, Kyran was just lovable and a bit arrogant. I found him funny especially when it came to Earth customs. I also thought he was hot! Let's just say I would love to watch him eat a cheeseburger ;) Eve I found to be level-headed, adaptable, and understanding. I found her funny and just awesome; blue and all. Life is all about the roller coaster ride and she's about to go on a big ride. I was glad to read about a heroine I didn't just want to punch in the face at least once. Surprisingly :O I found their romance cute. It didn't come about in such a fast paced way as you expect a shorter book, but it was sincere and not completely lust based. Great book and great looking collection :)
