About the Book:

The would-be heroine...

Aeron wants nothing more than to continue to live out her very long, solitary life in a small metal room listening to communications for the Federation Military. It's not glamorous. It's not even charming. But it's safe. There's no chance of getting hurt.

When she intercepts a communication about the impeding genocide of the Qurilixian people, she has no choice but to act. No one at the Federation seems inclined to do anything about the threat and suddenly it's up to her to save a whole planet. Enlisting the help of her degenerate sister, Aeron finds herself signed up as a prospective bride to the very barbarians she's trying to save.

The man who did not need saved...

High Duke of Draig, Lord Bron, is not looking forward to his seventh failed attempt at a marriage ceremony, but when he sees the lovely Aeron he knows instantly his years of waiting have finally paid off. The gods have blessed him with a life mate... or have they? His new bride is insistent she's not there for marriage, but for a mission. It's up to Bron to convince her to stay, or risk spending the rest of his life alone.

Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.

ABOUT THE SERIES (Books 5-8):

The Noblemen brothers aren't new to the sacred Qurilixian bridal ceremony. After several failed attempts at finding a bride, it's hard to get excited about yet another festival. No matter how honorable they try to live, it would seem fate thinks them unworthy of such happiness--that is until now.

With very few words spoken and the shortest, most bizarre courtship in history, they will bond to their women forever. And once bonded, these men don't let go.

    His Highness The Duke is the Fifth book in the Dragon Lords Ser


    His Highness The Duke is the Fifth book in the Dragon Lords Series by Michelle Pillow. I loved the first four books in the series as well as the other related book series. After reading the stories about the four princes it was interesting to get to know their royal, cousins, headed by the First born, the Duke Bron.
    Bron is a serious Draig, he now heads the house of the Kings' brother who is no longer alive. Bron is like a son to the King and takes his responsibilities to his family and royal position with devotion and honor.




    Disappointed by six years of not finding a bride at the Breeding Festival, Bron is too lost in his thoughts at this seventh one to realize his mate has finally walked right past him. As ecstatic as he is to see his crystal glowing, he must now figure out which one she is. Once Bron finds Aeron he is immediately drawn to her. Aeron insists that she is only there to warn the King of a serious threat by a group trying to take over their planet., and the only way she had to get to him was to take part in the festival. She quite taken back by the fact that she has actually been chosen by the gorgeous way to perfect male.




    All goes a little too well on their first night together, and the couple end up violating one of the most important rules of the mating ceremony. Now Bron must find a way to make up for their breech. Aeron has to figure out a way to warn the King and figure out her relationship to the handsome,domineering, frustrating, hot alpha warrior who has claimed her and whom she can't seem to control her attraction for.




    Aeron works for the Federation and has intercepted serious information about aliens planning to hostilly take over a planet for their precious ore. After seeing her own planet destroyed before her eyes and losing all she held dear, Aeron is determined to not let this happen to another innocent civilization.




    There was a lot of delicious chemistry between Bron and Aeron and I liked that she was not a whiny heroine and did not try to fight or deny her attraction to him. This group of royal cousins seem to have very old fashioned male dominance ideas that are about to be tested by some very independent females.
    The world of The Draig that the author has developed through several books now continues to take shape and expand, as well as new overall plot developments that will unfold throughout the next several books.
    Both Bron and Aeron are enjoyable characters, they have a great storyline that is new and refreshing to the series while still keeping us captivated in this world of the Draig.
    I definitely recommend reading the series in order, there are many interwoven facts and side stories that develop from book to book that should not be missed. Althoug I was a bit disappointed that the book was a bit shorter than the others, it was still an awesome, page turning read I enjoyed getting lost in for a few hours.
    An exciting story with some suspense, excitement, romance with some very hot smexy scenes, and the introduction to four more royal Draig brothers you'll definitely want to get to know.

    This book is different from the other books in this same series.

    This book is different from the other books in this same series. Whereas the other books focused on a central story, this one goes in a different direction. It starts out at the same claiming ceremony, but that is where the stories go their separate ways. I liked this story. Like book #4, though, I felt the ending was just cut off. The book was still enjoyable, but I would have preferred a prettier bow to finish everything off.

    I enjoyed this one a lot. I have read the first series of the Dr

    I enjoyed this one a lot. I have read the first series of the Draig Princes and their Princesses. I wondered how virile guys like these could maintain the custom on their wedding night. Love that Bron as moral and strong as he is is also human (okay Draig) No spoiler in case this is your first book.

    Aeron was sheltered by her own choice. In her position as communications expert she reports information that the Federation ignores. But she can not stand by and watch a catastrophe happen. So she leaves the comfort of her self made prison to warn Bron's people. Thanks to her unconventional sister's help, she gets more than she bargained for--a husband! Yes, the transportation her sister provided was a Space Order Bride ship. No problem, she'd just not get married. But 7 times Bron has gone through the Breeding Ceremony without finding a wife. This time the gods bless him with Aeron and he's not letting go.

    Their dance is fun and hot. Each keeps a major secret and has problems adjusting to the culture and feelings of their mate. Powerful loyalty to his people and their sense of obligation keeps them together, but the road is not smooth.

    While this story does end more quickly, we know it is a series--running on a concurrent time line so more of the story will be told by the other royal cousins. I for one am intrigued about the other wives especially a certain sister. I can't wait to read the next one.

    I've read all of Michelle Pillow's shifter books and they are all exceptional for Futuristic novels.
