Overview

War is coming for the dragon knights...but love may find them first.

Dragon Knights, Book 1

A chance meeting with a young male dragon seals the fate of one adventurous female poacher. The dragon's partner, a ruggedly handsome knight named Gareth, takes one look at the shapely woman and decides to do a little poaching of his own.

Sir Gareth both seduces and falls deeply in love with the girl who is not only unafraid of dragons but also possesses a rare gift-she can hear the beasts' silent speech. He wants her for his mate, but mating with a knight is no simple thing. To accept a knight, a woman must also accept the dragon, the dragon's mate...and her knight, Lars, too.

She is at first shocked, then intrigued by the lusty life in the Lair. But war is in the making and only the knights and dragons have a chance at ending it before it destroys their land and their lives.

Warning: Contains dragons, their sexy knights and a damsel who is not quite in distress. Sizzling hot m/f/m scenes may leave you breathing fire.

    Horribble Trash Save Your Money

    Before I start my review I would like to say that I love Paranormal Romance and especially those that are hot and steamy.

    Having said this I will say this is the worst thing I have ever read. For one the writing was horrible along with the character development. I was so use to reading books with characters that are complex that this was a huge disappointment. Then the erotica in this book is so bad that it takes up whole of the book, with no plot at all. All the men in this book just seem horny and the fact that he would be ok with sharing her with this partnered knight was weird. the thing that really irked me was when the dragon licks her and she becomes stimulated. WOW I think i have been scarred for life........ Dont waste your time on this unless your into porn, but thats all this is is pure porn and nothing else.

    If you are wondering what you could read that is worth your time here are a few suggestions:
    1. Pamela Palmer- Ferral warrior series
    2. Jeaniene Frost- Night Huntress
    3. Nalini Singh Guild Huntress series
    4. Deborah Harkness- Discovery of witches trilogy
    5. Dianne Duvall- Immortal Guardian series
    6. Kelley Armstrong- Women of the other worlds series

    These have plot strong and three dimensional characters with great Paranormal romance that is hot steamy and classy.

    DRAGON KNIGHTS is a MUST READ series!

    It is graphic in the menage sexual descriptions, but that is not all it is. It is a fun fantasy, time traveling trip to the land of Draconia, where dragons are partnered with knights, royal dragons are also hot guys, with castles, bad guys, magic and more.

    If you love hot guys, castles, dragons, knights and a simpler time in a fantasy land, the you MUST READ THIS SERIES!

    This series consists Maiden Flight, Border Lair, Ice Dragon, Prince of Spies, Wings of Change (even though not listed as a Dragon Knights book, it is and fits in right here), Firedrake and Dragon Storm, as of now. I am praying there is another one coming.

    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!

    This book is horrible and a waste of time. Don't even pick it up! Allow me to explain myself. By page 12, there was lewdness, on page 14, the f-bomb appeared, and the sexual situation begins at page 15. I di not read any further than that, for if something is that bad that early then it is not worth reading. Being in my early teeenage years, I am appalled that there was no warning on this. It was a waste of money that I could have used to buy another, better book! If it was possible, I would give it no stars.

    Loved it!!!!

    I saw the other reviews for this book and I have to say that the people who gave this book a low rating need to have their heads examined! I love this book. The characters are great and the storyline is awesome. Because of the book, I spent a small fortune buying all the authors other books, and devoured them! The dialogue between the dragons and the characters are woonderful and I was enthralled with the story. Awesome book and I would highly recommend to anyone that likes paranormal romance :0).

    No way

    The author actually forgets the name of the main character in the middle of the book. Where is the editor ? Sex scenes are steamy then get redundant. Characters are shallow and plot is given over for gratuitous sex. Too high priced for that.

    Great

    This is really a great story, Ms D'arc did it again. Although its a two mates and one woman concept dont let that turn you away. The men are devoted completely to the female. ENJOY

    Erotica not fantasy romance.

    Disgusted. Save your money. Books like this should have a x rating so you know what you are getting. Zero stars.

    Fun Dragon World Erotica 

    This is an enjoyable erotic dragon world which I will be happy to revisit.  The characters are all very likable but the dragons who mind
     link and share pleasure with their knights are especially so.  The writing lags in places and the heroine is a bit vapid as is the hero.
    There just isn't a lot of depth here but the sexy times are well done and with fun twists.

    Rune

    Gender: Male (technically), Female on the inside • Sexual Preference: Gay • Age: Uncertain • Appearance: Ice Blue fur striped with pure white that ripples constantly, as if it were flowing. Her muzzle is a dark grey with strange gold speckles. Sometimes, seemingly prophetic images appear on her back. Backstory: Being a female human completely trapped in a male wolf's body, she has learned to adjust to life as a wolf. Her body seemingly never ages, and even she doesn't remember how long she has been like this. While comfortable and well-adjusted to life in a pack by now, she still occasionally has antisocial tendencies. On half moons, she can be seen standing by the river, trying to remember that one piece of her life that she has lost. Some say that if you look closely enough at the water on those nights, you can see her memories spread across the surface. Although always the one to make a cutting remark, she fiercely defends her friends and always puts herself last in times of emergency.
