Continuing with my dragon obsession, I finally got to read ‘Gwenvael the Handsome’s book! I first fell for him in Dragon Actually when he was flirting shamelessly with Annwyl and we first heard tales of his pranks on his family, along with that one occasion he got the tip of his tail cut off.

Yes, he’s the joker, and yes, he’s the dragon-whore, so I knew I didn’t want a sweet, prime and proper mate for him. He needed someone with some spark.

Enter the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt. Her nickname is the Beast, really. Dagmar has information for Annwyl and sends a letter requesting to meet with her, but Annwyl in her state sends Gwenvael.

I really enjoyed their story. Their relationship building slowly, even though they were both attracted. If you thought the dragons were disfunctional, then you have no clue about the Northlanders. Dagmar’s family is a hot mess!

On their way to bring Dagmar to meet with Annwyl they face some obstacles, Gwenvael even finds his aunt. We are introduced to yet another group of dragons, Ragnar who sounds most interesting and I’m excited his book will be next.

And of course, I can’t NOT mention the one part of this book that had me in tears. I won’t tell you what happens, just know that it has to do with Annwyl and Fearghus. Definitely a tearjerker moment!

As always, you can expect a lot of humor, snarky remarks, and great chemistry! Probably my favorite book in this series so far!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
