For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by - wait for it - a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she's the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he's in for a surprise.
Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he'd counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It's embarrassing, really, that it isn't this outspoken female's magicks that have the realm's greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different, and if he doesn't tread carefully, what he doesn't know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race.

This book started slowly with Talaith and Briec constantly arguing and denying each other's feelings. Which I know was a way to deny their attraction, but it did get a little old after a while. Talaith was a surprisingly deadly heroine. I liked that she can take care of herself but that she doesn't want to be a killer. Briec was a thick headed and arrogant dragon who thinks everyone should fall at his feet. He was ok. His arrogance got old after a while.
Once the truth comes out the story really picks up and a lot of key things happen. We learn the truth about Talaith and why she has done all the things she has done. The Gods of the humans and dragons also come into play in this book, which was interesting and I am sure we will see more of them in future books.
Overall, this was a good book with a lot of major storyline plots going on. I enjoyed it but these two were slightly annoying at times.
This was a really good story and addition to the series.
Talaith is a witch that was taken from her homeland at a young age by a goddess. The goddess had leverage over her and used that leverage to make Talaith serve her. Talaith was forced to live with a man she didn't love and train in the arts of killing in order to be ready for when the goddess called on her to perform a "duty".
Briec is the son of Rhiannon and Bercelak (the MCs from Chains & Flames, the second story in Dragon Actually) and brother to Fearghus (a MC in the first story in Dragon Actually). He's a fearsome dragon with many victories, earning him the name of Briec the Mighty. Unfortunately, this has made him very arrogant and full of self importance.
Briec doesn't like Fearghus' human mate but he sees how happy his usually dower brother is with his mate and Briec wants that for himself. While on a trip into an enemy territory to spy for Fearghus, Briec happens across Talaith. She's beautiful and attracts Briec's attention so he offers to carry her away...and is flummoxed when she turns him down. Talaith finds Briec attractive but she has her duty and isn't going to run off with a handsome knight. What Talaith wasn't expecting is to have the villagers (her husband included) drag her out of her bed in the wee hours of the morning with plans to hang and burn her to death. Briec still happens to be in the area and saves her...but then he decides she belongs to him because he saved her life and wont let her go.
After Briec saves Talaith, he's intending to carry her back to his lair but really bad storms sweep in and force them to stop in at Gwenvael's cave for shelter. Both Gwenvael and Éibhear are Briec's brothers and both are in residence when Briec and Talaith arrive. They provide a buffer between Talaith and Briec so she becomes more comfortable with her stay but she still knows the goddess will call on her so Talaith is always looking for a means to escape. The attraction between Talaith and Briec is great but he's so arrogant and full of himself that he thinks he just needs to bed Talaith to get over her and then they can go their separate ways. Talaith has her duty and with Briec giving her no option that would lead to a real future with him, she doesn't feel she can rely on him or that he has true feelings for her. Talaith's misinterpretation of Briec's feelings as well as her "duty" do cause some problems and a good amount of drama. Thankfully, things fall in to place nicely, working out so that Briec and Talaith end the story, starting on a HEA together.
This was a really enjoyable story. I really liked Talaith, especially when I found out what her "duty" was and what leverage was being held over her. Briec was a real ass at first but I liked him very much once he got over himself and realized his feelings for Talaith. Overall, I loved the characters and thought the story was really good and engaging so I'd recommend this story/series.
* note - I listened to the audio version of this story and the narrator did a good job.
Now, with that said, I really enjoyed reading this book it only for the fact that the main heroine, Talaith, is a strong witch completely uninterested in the gorgeous, arrogant dragon Briec. I found it comical how shocked Briec was to find a human who was not only completely drawn to him but failed to be scared by him in his dragon form.
The adventure that those 2 go on, each with their separate “missions”, is fascinating. The ins and outs of how they negotiate their choices made this a page turner. Also, the fact that when they chose to have sex it was because both parties decided to (there’s no forcing or persuasive pressuring here), made the sex scenes even more compelling, convincing and ridiculously hot.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the first book. I won’t take as long to read the 3rd!

I love paranormal romance and this series is fantastic. You have an arrogant pain of a Dragon, that you really enjoy want to slap!. You get to join our heroine in her dislike of Briec specifically, and men in general - but without the guilt.
And who is his match in this h.e.a? A tough as nails assassin who gives as good as she gets. It has dragons - of course. God's and goddesses. Magic without the Potter. And a surprise ending i really liked. Love them or hate them, they will leave a lasting impression.
