Melina Franklin was barely 16 when she and her grandfather were kidnapped by an alien trader and sold to an Antrox mining asteroid in deep space. Mistaken for a young boy, she lives the next five years in fear of being found out and sold. She dreams of the day when she and her grandfather will return home.
Calo and Cree Aryeh are twin brothers and a rare species of dragon known for their fierceness in battle. The brothers know they will never be able to have a true mate of their own. Never in the history of their clan have twin dragons been able to find a mate capable of handling two male dragons.
The twin dragons are confused when two humans are discovered in an abandoned asteroid mine. The old man and his grandson appear normal enough, but their dragons are driving them crazy, insisting the boy is their true mate. Things become clearer when they discover Mel is really Melina, but she refuses to have anything to do with either of them, and she is determined to return home. Can they convince her to give them a chance at happiness?

Yes, I could turn it off.
Might float some peoples boats, but my boat sank without trace. To be fair it just wasn't my cup of tea.
"Not exactly the book I wanted..."
This is one of those side stories that popped up through the series. Having those brooding twins meet their match was fun to see in Carmen's book. We had just enough hints to see things coming. It was interesting seeing those same events from the inside with this book. It did make a few things in the beginning seem to go slower. I just wanted to fast forward to the moment they knew she was a girl and what happened after.
There are no major twist in this book, it is more about the trio than any serious plot drama. Most of the big bad stuff was resolved and not really a part of this story. There is another conflict presented by the nature of them as twin dragons. Apparently, twin dragons never have found a true mate, so things do get dramatic at the end.
It takes awhile for the steam to happen, especially because for a large chunk of the book they thought she was a boy. Once that is dissolved, the spark happens quickly. They are seriously hawt details!! It is super fast for things happening. It is a very spicy book in the end.
I liked this book, but it wasn't a favorite in the series. I just kept waiting for something to happen. Once things did get exciting, it just wasn't enough for me. I would have liked the recap portion to have been quicker and more of their time on Earth as well as them coming home to the village.
As always the narration was a highlight, David Brenin is one of my ear crushes!! I just cannot get enough of his delicious reads!! He has a splendid pace that brings the action to life in delightful ways! I want him to read to me nightly!!
There are still a couple more side books in this series, then the stories of the other planet's princes. I love that this creates such a full world with so much potential!! The connections of the stories is a fascinating puzzle to unravel.
"Twin dragons find young human completes them?"
O.K. first of all the twin dragons did NOT kidnap the young girl. Some other aliens kidnapped a young female & her grandfather from earth to be slaves. Her grandfather hides the fact that she was a female to keep her safe. She grew up 6 years away from earth as a young boy the "wasn't right in the head". The pair get rescued but, chances of getting back to earth are complicated when the twin dragon brothers meet the "boy' and find that they are strongly attracted to "him" this story has some sad situtations and bizarre events that keep the reader/listener scratching their head. It was the typical struggle of alpha male/males controling their female to bend to their wishes. I felt sorry for the young lead female. She lost soooo much and then when she though she might get her life back. Uncontrollable forces push her into another life. Her childhood is robbed & innocents lost. Perhaps losing her roots & family made room for new ones.. We hope.
Loved it! Nice and steamy with lots of funny and good smile moments! You'll love it too!
"I loved it!"
I was so worried about the twins and cheered when Mel came to the rescue. She showed courage throughout the story. Thank you for such a different twist and I can't wait for all the books to go audio.
"simple and pleasent and a prime example of......"
I like the Author's imagination. it is fun. Over all this book is entertaining up to a degree. The description of this world and the interactions between characters are simplistic in nature.. I feel like this world of dragon shifters is young and lacks the richness of a full bodied well rounded story that leaves the reader fully satisfied in having been immersed , not just dipped, in the whole experiance. It's a book I would listen to only once,having fast forwarded a time or two. Not a book I would read again and again. The Narrator is good but some female voices sound a little off to me, and perhaps best described as weak. The male voices are really good. At times I wanted to shake the females and offer them a cup of strong coffee without any sugar. Too soft. Too much breathe. This also caused me to fast forward a time or two.
I do Keep in mind that simple can be good sometimes. Happy reading.
"Waste of my time!"
I enjoyed all of the other Dragon Lords books but this one wasn't very good. By the time it was over, I disliked all three of the main characters. S. E. Smith didn't put much effort into this story. I am returning this one, even if it did cost only $2.99.
"One of my new faves!!!!"
This book was amazing, I loved the twin dragons and Malina. David Brenin is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators. Just hearing his voice makes me warm and moist! Too bad there were no Scottish accents, otherwise 10 out of 10!
"great story intertwining fantasy and romance"
reader makes you forget there is only one reader. you laugh and fall in love with the characters and the story
"Appealing world and characters."
Story so interesting that I listen to entire book on weekend day. However the narrator's female voices were so terrible that if I had not been having so much trouble with my eyes I would have given up Audible book and read this book on Kindle. It was extremely difficult to get past bad rendition of heroine's voice and enjoy the story.
"Fun Listen, cheesy sci fi"
As a horror and a sci fi enthusiast, I always have to remind myself that romance novels rarely pay homage to the genres they swipe ideas from. If you like campy, cheesy sci fi, and you're not offended by the idea of a heroic triad instead of the more common binary pairing, it's an enjoyable listen. If you're going to be nit picky about pesky things like physics and basic biological realities, then this is so *not* the book for you.
