Summary

Teagan O’Shea is a rare female dragon-shifter leader. While her Irish clan has a tradition of female leaders, they have had to hide behind a public male face for centuries to keep the other clans from viewing them as weaker and attacking. When the truth leaks, Teagan is faced with a choice - hand over the leadership to a male or invite the challengers to a leadership trial and earn her place. Out to prove having a penis isn’t required to be a leader, she picks the latter.

Aaron Caruso is sent to Ireland under the guise of repairing relations between two clans on the isle of Ireland. However, upon arrival, he learns the truth. Determined to secure Teagan’s place so he can escape her alluring eyes and addicting personality, he busies himself with helping her any way he can. A female used him once, and he’s not about to go through that again, no matter how much the Irish female tempts him.

As the pair work together on preparations for the leadership trial, both Aaron and Teagan start to see each other in a new light. Both have their own self-imposed loneliness and yearn for something they can’t have. Can Aaron and Teagan not only change tradition but also open their hearts? Or will they each be doomed to live alone to fight their inner battles?

ARC Audio Review- Aiding the Dragon

Ok, I loved this story! My favorite part of this book is seeing a strong confident woman stand strong and find her happily ever after. Gary Furlong did a wonderful job narrating as well. Especially with the Irish accents. I did miss Matthew Lloyd Davies nack at giving the different characters (including the dragons) their own voices however. I had to rewind quite a few times to make sure I knew who exactly was speaking. plus I can usually multi task while listening and I found couldn't do that with this story. Overall though I think Mr. Furlong did very well with this, and I am looking forward to seeing how the future of the many other characters play out and see how past characters progress as well! I would definitely recommend this book!

Aiding the Dragon

Oh My This was so good , it was so full of exciting things that will make you feel like you are right in the middle of this book. The Dragon's of this series are so sexy and willing to do what ever it takes to help their females. Loved it. Cannot wait to see what happens next.

Aiding the Dragon.

Aiden wasn't excited at being sent to The Irish Clan. He'd met the female leader and while he told himself it had nothing to do with her leadership. Her gender was another thing. He didn't have a good opinion about any female dragon shifter except his mother. He has a history to warrant the feelings.

Teagan didn't appreciate his attitude. Her clan was alone in having a female leader. Even so, the rest of the clans believed her brother led. Aiden was just another cocky male who didn't think she was strong enough to lead. She knew she worked harder, took on more, and made a personal effort to deal with her clan than any other leader. Just once, she wished a likely male would see it.

Their dragons knew it wasn't gender discrimination. It had a lot to do with gender and hormones and the steam created when they were together. I really enjoyed the first challenge. The payback was an interesting beginning to their growing relationship.

The author has given us a dragon's eye view of a current day and reality in this enticing story. The characters are strong yet each has a soft center damaged by past relationships and fear of new ones. I loved their hedge to give into their attraction. The heat interspersed with teasing, threats, and one-up-manship. Watching them come to terms while dealing with danger, life threats, family issues, as well as the threat of leadership loss. Both characters are strong and fun and I loved them.

The narrator did a stellar job with the different accents and characters. He is not the one she normally uses and was so pleased he was just as good as her usual narrator.

I was delighted to know that there will be more coming up with the relationship evolving from this story in at least one future story. This is another gold medal winner from Jessie Donovan.

Disappointing

I love this series but this one didn’t measure up. It lacked some of the character development of other books but, more importantly, it lacked the humor, the warmth and the passion of previous books.

The narrator was mediocre - rather unemotional. The characters were overwhelmingly Irish but with only the vaguest accents.

Aiding the Dragon is a wonderful twist!

An Irish dragon-shifter clan!💚 Teagan is a rare female dragon-shifter leader, but her clan has always had to hide behind a male face. Because a female leader is seen as weaker than a male. The truth comes out, and she chooses to prove her worth!
Aaron comes to “repair” relations between 2 Irish dragon-shifter clans. But chooses to help Teagan in her battle of proving her right to lead.
Both have chosen to be alone, but in their journey together they begin to see the other as more than a certain type.
Jessie Donovan writes such compelling books that you will not want to put Aiding the Dragon down. Now will you stay up to finish the book tonight, is the question.

Aiding the Dragon

Aiding the Dragon is set in Ireland with Teagan and Aaron. A new narrator has taken over for this part of the series. At first it was a bit of a shock to listen, especially with his lovely accent. At times I found it difficult to keep up with who was talking as the narrator didn’t have a lot of inflection changes in his voice. However, the storyline more than made up for this.

Taegan!!!

This is Taegan and Aaron's book and holy cow its amazing!

I have been reading this series since its first book and each one is better than the other but truthfully this might be the best ever.
We've been waiting for this book for what seems like ages and its finally here and i can tell you the author did right by the couple and gave us an amazing book filled with laughter and amazing chemistry between the two and also lots of twists and turns in the plot.
The action was intense and the battle was to die for!
As always we have strong and stubborn dragon shifter and this time we have an equally strong headed and stubborn female clan leader!
I have to say that i loved Gary Furlong's voice!!!
Clear and he found exactly how to give life to each character!



Another great addition to the series by Jessie Donovan that keeps impressing us with each book!
Can't wait for the next story to come!!!!

A female Dragon Leader!!!

This is the 9th book in the Stone fire Dragon series. It's about Teagan O'Shea and Aaron Caruso.

Teagan is the female dragon leader of the Glenlough clan who is forced to hide behind her brother Killian O’Shea. Killian pretends to be the Irish clan leader due to the world seeing a female leader as weak and unacceptable.

Aaron is a protector sent to the Irish clan from Stonefire under false pretense. He is not very happy to learn the true reasons of this deceit, especially because now he has to work closely under Teagan, the one female he can't but want's to get out of his head.

I really loved listening to this story of a female dragon leader and her struggle to remain so in spite of that facts. Aaron and Teagan were cute together and Gary Furlong did a great job narrating this book. There was a lot going on in this story and it seemed like things were glanced over and not really explained towards the end but I still highly enjoyed the book and recommend anyone who wants to get out of their own head for a while and live in a different world read the Stonefire Dragon series.

Another Great Story!

Another amazing story! And so much fun to learn about a new clan! At times it was very hard to follow due to the narrator. There was very little change in voice between characters and his sentences seemed to run into each other with very little pause.
