Half-human and half-Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder Races.
As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in each other.
Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul.
This was a fun read that I've been wanting to try for awhile having heard a lot of good things about it. I listed it for my seriously series challenge, and I was not disappointed!
Dragos is everything you would expect a wyr dragon to be, snarly, used to having his own way no questions ask, he says jump, everyone asks how high, after all he is the top of the food chain. Funny how it just took one little slip of a girl to lay him low after centuries. You would have thought he'd seen everything by then, but Pia came as a complete surprise to him and suddenly he was no longer bored. In fact life got very interesting and complicated really fast.
I'm a sucker for the big, bad, take-no-prisoners male brought down by the typically small, shy, quiet, unassuming, continue with a list of diminutive adjectives here female that's finally had enough and this fit that bill to a T. Bigger than her Dragos might be but Pia was not going to take attitude from him without giving it back. There is a variety of great characters in here that I immediately found myself hoping for future books on, and so I had to go read the blurbs on the rest of the series to see who had been included so far. The world is interesting with our own reality and the parallel dimension. There is humor, and great banter, and big hulking sexy wyr-critters that of course ALL fall for Pia and take complete leave of their senses, which makes them endearing, since it's fiction, thank goodness or they would be completely insufferable!
The big mystery is what is Pia? I had a good laugh over that one and that's all I'm going to say! ;)
Dragon Bound was a great time and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!
