Overview

The clan is waking. After centuries of spellbound sleep, dragon-shifters are returning to the mountains. They are few in number, and the outside world has become overrun with humans.

Huroth, the dragon chieftain, recognizes a need for his kind to adapt, by forming alliances and mate-bonds with humans, but his clan is divided. From the first time she meets him, Lady Orwenna is drawn to the magnificent chieftain. The mind link he forms with her is both fascinating and frightening, as is the powerful attraction she feels for him. If only she knew what was in his heart.

Does he want her for the woman she is, or for her magical abilities? When war breaks out between kingdoms and ancient enemies of the dragons resurface, the clan will be tested. In the midst of uncertainty, can Huroth and Orwenna find their way together?

Enjoyable - Orwenna runs her land as she wills, as her father is content to let her. She's fierce and determined to live life her way. A chance meeting with Huroth, the dragon chieftain needed to save her people, changes her path. Is Orwenna strong enough to choose the path of her heart?

I loved the idea of a clan of dragon shifters, and was not disappointed by this story. The plot is very fast-paced and keeps readers caught up in suspense and romance. The story is well-written and extremely detailed without getting you bogged down in minutia. I enjoyed getting to know Orwenna and Huroth. They are both intriguing characters. Orwenna is strong and independent, unwilling to let anyone control her life. Huroth is protective of everyone in the clan, and is determined to do what is best for all of them. While this book was fascinating and enjoyable, I also found the plot a bit too predictable. It's a very light romance, and perfect for those who love dragons. I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

I didn't expect to really like this fantasy about shape shifting dragons who can mind link and humans but I did. That some of those humans were also capable of magic made them unacceptable to their human counterparts and different from all the others. Lady Orwenna is one of those AND chaffed at the way men treated women--using them to their own ends without even a by you leave!! She did what she wanted--even if it might land her in a heap of trouble! Huroth, the chief of the dragons, fell for Lady Orwenna--but could she learn to trust him? Could this improbable romance ever come to fruition? Read the book to find out! The ending will make you want to read more---which I will be doing once it is released!!

"Dragon Wife" by Diana Green is Book 1 of the Dragon Clan series and it plunges us into the fantastical world of Huroth and Lady Orwenna, a dragon chief and a healer, and the mental bond between them. After centuries of sleep, the dragon clan is waking to a world where humans abound. Huroth understands the need for the clan to adapt by forming alliances with the humans, but not all dragons agree. As tensions mount and kingdoms go to war, not only will Huroth's leadership be tested but, more importantly, also his bond with Orwenna. Needless to say, with such a plot, I enjoyed reading it from start to end. Being a fan of Michael Moorcock, along with many other fantasy authors, I found in Dragon Wife all the ingredients to fuel my love for fantasy adventure. Good to know that this is only the beginning of the saga. A great sword & sorcery novel that doesn't disappoint.

Dragons and magic… Oh how the mighty fall in the face of love After being frozen in suspension for eons dragons are back in the world and Orwenna has a connection to one. She dreams of them nightly. Orwenna’s bold and outspoken where women are expected to be biddable and meek. Left to her own devices she’s managed her family estate alone for years and yet she is nothing but chattel in the scheme of things. She is her father’s to award in marriage to whomever he pleased. Well Orwenna wasn’t so accepting of his dictates so off she ran to find her own path in life. And where better than with the dragon she met years ago and dreams of nightly. Huroth is chieftain of his clan of dragon shifters. After a brutal war and an enchanted sleep he is awakened from his cold slumber. His clan is decimated and few. Huroth knows they need allies and mates with magic in their blood to continue their race. He aligns his clan with the human realm of Rhelaun promising to come to their aide in times of need in exchange for the King’s daughter as a dragon wife. Years will pass before this marriage will come to be as the princess is but a child when the alliance is made. But there is one in the Rhelaun court that captures his attention with her witchy abilities. Their connection is instant but left to simmer over the years. War comes to Rhelaun. The dragons are called. Orwenna and Huroth are reunited. This time she is no longer a crushing adolescent but an adult whose desire sizzles. Huroth finds her irresistible. As their adventure progresses desire builds, love blossoms and trust grows. But is it enough trust to ensure Orwenna will choose to stay with Huroth as his mate? Enemies old and new as well as a skeptical clan provide plenty of challenges. This was a good read with solid writing. The story was a little slow in the beginning but certainly picked up along the way as the action started to heat up. The heat level is more on the sweet to sensual side. If you’re looking for dragon shifters, magic and love look no further. Review copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.

I received this book from Reading Alley in return for a fair and honest review. This book is what I would describe as a slow burner in the very best sense - the author has given the characters time to develop, to become their own person, before they even attempt a relationship together. Nothing seems rushed in this story, indeed we start the book when Orwenna is still quite young. Although she is given quite a bit of leeway from her father, as detailed in the book, she is eventually betrothed to marry someone of her father's choosing. So when she happens upon an opportunity for adventure, she takes it almost like a last hoorah. This is a book filled with adventure, myth and magic. There are good and bad on both sides which you will find out about. Very well-written and with a good plot line. The characters are both believable and likable. I am looking forward to reading more in this series. Definitely recommended. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

"Dragon Wife" is a romantic fantasy about a young royal woman and the dragon chieftain with whom she finds an unexpected but undeniably powerful connection. Orwenna first sees Huroth when he comes to the court of the king (her uncle) to request an alliance between human and dragon; in exchange for a bride, the dragons will serve as the kingdoms allies against any invading foes. Despite a telepathic connection with Orwenna, the bride Huroth chooses in the young princess--though as Orwenna flees an unwanted marriage and war flares in the future, she and Huroth will passionately come together, despite the obstacles in their way. Orwenna is a feisty heroine who quickly endears herself to the reader; shes smart and capable, and I liked that she was fine being on her own rather than making a poor marriage. Her instant connection to Huroth adds mystery and suspense to the plot right from the start--why do they feel such a connection, and how will it play into their futures?--and Huroth himself is a good romantic lead, strong and noble while still being flawed. I especially liked his interactions with the other dragons, who are skeptical of his plan to take a human mate to keep their line alive. There's action for those who like battle scenes in their fantasies, and the ending leaves room for more in the series. This book reminded me of Vivian Vande Velde's "Dragon Bait" and Mary Brown's "Pigs Dont Fly" series; I love dragon/shapeshifter stories and this one has been added to my list as one of my favorites.

Orwenna dreamed of experiencing romance, adventure and mystery in her future. Reality crushed those dreams when her father betrothed her to Rollin, a boring, uncaring man who worked with her father. She knew she had to do something drastic to avoid this turn of events. That opportunity came when she overheard the King telling her uncle about an imminent attack that would need the help of the Dragon people. Several years before, an alliance had been made with Huroth, chieftain of the dragons. Orwenna decides to secretly follow the group delivering the message to Huroth. Along the way, the group is killed and it is left to Orwenna to get the message through in time to save the town. I liked the spunk that Orweena had. I could feel the disappointment she felt with her father and Rollin.  And I also felt how strong the feelings she and Huroth had for each other. If the author carries this story further, I would like to know how her father and Rollin reacted to Orweena’s decision to run. Also, it needs more volume added to her magical abilities and background. I don’t think enough of that was revealed.
