Bound by a Dragon by Linda K Hopkins

What is a dragon without a maiden?

At twenty-two, Keira is expected to marry and settle down, but her suitors are less than desirable. So when Aaron Drake arrives in the village and sets his sights on her, she cannot help but be interested. It's not just his handsome looks or easy confidence that captures her attention, but rather an air of otherness. Something that sets him apart.

But Aaron is not the only new arrival in the village. A fire-breathing dragon has taken up residence in the surrounding mountains, and the villagers are certain that it is just a matter of time before the creature destroys them all. It’s not the dragon who is the enemy, however, and Keira soon finds herself caught up in events that will completely change the course of her life.
Bound by a Dragon is the first books in the epic fantasy romance series, The Dragon Archives, and was awarded the Indie BRAG award. If you love medieval romance with a paranormal twist, you’ll love this compelling tale which will have you engrossed from the very first page.

Nothing better than an old fashioned fairytale! This story had all of the appeal of an old fairytale with a villain, a beautiful village girl, and of course a handsome hero. I loved the fast pace of this story it was a easy read that I enjoyed getting lost in. What I liked best, however, was the depth of the characters. While there was definitely an old fashioned feel to this tale, there was a bit of darkness to it as well. These characters weren't as sweet or as vicious as their exterior may seem. Also while admittedly there were parts that were predictable I was pleasantly pleased at the unique aspects too. The romance was well paced and a nice change with all of the heated and fast moving love relationships in literature today. It had that old fashioned courtship appeal, but with a bit of spice added near the end as well. I really appreciated that you could see much of the development and how real it felt between them. There were plenty of obstacles, but their reactions and how they handled everything thrown at them suggested that this love was real and something they would work for. Keira was a capable, brave, intelligent young woman. She loves her family dearly, but felt neglected by them most of the time. I liked that she used her head even when she was scared out of her mind. She was a rational and kind woman that knew how to live life for today. It was easy to see how she capture the heart of Aaron. Aaron while charming and handsome was not without fault. He could have a temper and throw a tantrum sometimes, but it was nothing Keira couldn't handle. He was very protective and caring even to those who weren't as forgiving to him. I loved him and his intelligent understanding of others. I think one of my favorite things about this story was how it handled the villains. They weren't treated with prejudice or seen as just an evil person. Instead their actions and motives were actually explored by the characters. Even when it was a detriment to them they tried to understand where that person was coming from. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good dragon tale and an old fashioned romance!

I am so glad that the author decided to stick with the way those from a village would speak instead of sticking to proper English. It was refreshing to read the terms milord as it would have been used in those times by those not of the upper class. It was even more refreshing to read the twist in this particular fairy tale. It wasn't the same old same old and that made it even better. I hope to read Anna's story soon and see what fate has in store for her. The author did a great job and I highly recommend giving it a chance.

Started with true potential, but one more "my sweet" and I almost couldnt finish the book. Found myself skipping pages to get to the end.

It's everything you would want in a old fashion love story. A poor young maiden laying eyes on a rich alpha stranger in town. Falling in love at first sight, and becoming a damsel in distress. The pace of the story is too quick for me. Love at first sight is a little too quick. There's no twist in the story. It's everything you would expect from a love story with a happy ending.

I enjoyed the fact that the love story was not lurid. A good book for mom and daughter. Thank you! GPS

I read it all at once from begining to end. I have to admit to some bias because I love dragon stories. It had a good plot and the characters were well written. Overall it was a good read. Jennifer

It started out a little slow but once it picked up, it was a great ride. Finally a paranormal romance where the woman didn't completely freak out and run away. I really wasn't sure that I was going to give it 5 stars at the beginning but I really, truly enjoyed this book.

I liked the characters interaction. I didn^t like the touch of macabre. Going for shock maybe like watching a slasher flick? I won't be reading the next one.

It was great in the beginning but it was just moving to fast for me. They said "I love you" way to fast. It was really cheesy and I'm having trouble making it through the book and Im only on chapter 15 so far.
