Paranormal Dragon-shifting Romance

An unlucky bride…

Riona Grey lives life on her own terms, traveling wherever the next spaceship is flying and doing what she must to get by. When her luck turns sour, she finds herself on a bridal ship heading to a marriage ceremony. A planet of 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 to a sexy, hovering dragon-shifter 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 dragon-shifter 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, 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Hit! Vlad may have been the patient Lord, but his brother Lord Mirek is most definitely the impatient one, or so he believes! Everyone thought that Lord Mirek hadn't been blessed with a bride, but the god did bless him, only she had a very bad reaction to Yellow and was in a coma for almost a year and Mirek believes it was his impatience when he found her that caused her all this pain.. He has sworn to make it right by learning to be patient now that she has awoken. How can he keep that promise though when she looks at him like that. Riona awakens to learn that she is now married to this most gorgeous looking man, how can she keep her hands off him knowing it would be the death of her. But those green eyes are so tempting, she might just make the sacrifice for one night looking into those orbs. She can't keep her eyes away. All the Princes and the Lords of Draig have been blessed by the gods with brides. This series has got to be the best, I have never been so entertained by a series, I'm probably lying cause there are quite a few others that are in this category as well, but this is definitely one of those favorites. Kuddos Ms. Pillow I was gifted this book for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are the Draig. We are strong. We are brave. We act on instinct. (Too bad no one told the poor brides this!) When he saw his bride, the crystal would glow, signifying his destiny. WHOOT! The story I have been waiting for! The Lord is not the only impatient one around here! This story is about Mirek and Riona…finally! I have been dying to find out what happened her! We were first introduced to Riona in her sister Aeron’s story – His Highness the Duke – and my first impressions of her were not too favorable! Although now I know how & why Riona & Aeron ended up on the Galaxy Brides ship in the first place! (by the way, I have been scouring my newspapers and even some reputable sites on the web but I STILL CANNOT find an ad for Galaxy Brides anywhere! I bet they can boast even better matches, second dates & marriages then Match.com & eHarmony combined! Snicker) But even still, I did not want her to get…well…whatever it was that happened to her to have her be in an isolation room inside of a medipod for months! All the way through books 5, 6 & 7 in fact! :) I have to admit that I actually found Ri to be a character that I loved!! Being able to see everything from her eyes, by get to know her by being in her head & heart, you come to understand her & why she is doing what she does! Once again there are many elements woven together to create this terrific story – humor, mystery, stubborn women, confused men, shifters, sexy hot men, hot naughty play, and so much more but you will have to read it for yourself to unlock all of the yumminess inside! Well, after reading 7 books in this Dragon Lords series, I thought that maybe the novelty would start to wear off and I would start to lose interest in the series. *SMACKS HEAD HARD* What on earth was I thinking! In my temporary moment of insanity I forget the more important part – it is written by Michelle M. Pillow! I don’t think she could even write a non-captivating story if she tried! I mean, come on! Michelle is a NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY BESTSELLING ROMANCE AUTHOR! I don’t understand how Michelle is NOT at the top of ALL of the best-seller lists ALL THE TIME! She is at the top of my TBR and is one of the very few authors that I have most of her books, and that I read over & over again! Whenever I am looking for something to read, Michelle is one of my go-to authors every single time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Love Worth Waiting For 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 reading the entire series and would highly recommend this.
