    Short, sweet, and definitely hot!

    Review by Lisa:
    Short, sweet and definitely hot! The Dragon Slayer by Jianne Carlo is a delicious escape to the Northumbrian Border. Ruard and Catriona enter into their marriage with two very different objectives. Ruard wants to become Lord of Dunsmuir Castle and Catriona wants to save her sister from Lord Ulfric. The chemistry between Ruard and Catriona sizzles off the page. The author's description of Dunsmuir Castle and the surrounding lands paint a picture of a time long ago. I enjoyed the relationship between Ruard and his brother Njal. I would love to learn more about the wicked Lord Ulfric and his dealings before he holds Gaeierla captive. This is a fast paced, well-written book that leaves you wanting more.

    Quote: "The outline of a fire-spewing dragon was drawn on the cusp of his shoulder. This creature, this man they called The Dragon Slayer, would protect her."

    Ruard is big, sexy, virile and golden all over

    The Dragon Slayer is a novella that has a lot of the things I enjoy when reading a Viking romance novel. Really hot love scenes between the hero and heroine. The Viking hero Ruard is big, muscular, virile and golden all over (yes, you have to use the word virile at least once in a Viking romance novel). He's also gets very jealous when anyone touches his Catriona or even looks at her too long. Oh, I just love a big beautiful jealous Viking...yummy.There are a couple of fight scenes and thank goodness author Jianne Carlo' doesn't go into a lot of detail about them in this novella. I always skim through that part anyways when I'm reading them.

    The Dragon Slayer is book two in Jianne Carlo's Viking Warrior's series. Book three in the series titled The Peacemaker is due to be released in June. This will be Ruard's brother Njal's love story. We get to see him a lot in The Dragon Slayer.

    I fell in love with Catriona's little seven year old sister Gaeierla who thinks Ruard is the norse god Thor. Maybe one day later in the series we will get her love story. I hope we get to see her grow up and fall in love with a big golden Viking like Thor.
    I love the cover of this book. The cover model is Sam Bond and I think he makes for a perfect Viking. Great choice for the cover model.

    Good Read!

    I really enjoyed this book. I only wish it would have been longer. Raurd, The Dragon Slayer, is gifted by the King a Bride and with it Land. All Raurd wants is a plain humble woman to be his obediant wife. Catroina is not what he was hoping and is captivated by her. Catroina has no choice in her marrige but is blackmailed to poison her new husband if she ever wants to see her little sister again.
    I give this book 4 stars and the only reason I wont give the fifth is because I wish it had been longer. I Love happy endings but I wish Raurd and Catroina had to struggle or fight more for their Love and Trust. It just seemed like they got it too easy.
