Dragon Shapeshifter Sci Fi Paranormal Romance
The original Dragon Lords series by NYT Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow.


Kendall Haven's life turns upside down when she's taken from her fueling dock home by thugs. Her gambler father used her to cover his losses. Treated like cargo, she's sold to the highest bidder--an alien bride procurement agency.

Landing on a primitive planet on the far edge of the universe, she has no intention of fulfilling her father's contract--even if that contract includes marriage to a very handsome, very sexy, very intense barbarian of a man. He might be everything a woman fantasizes about, but he wants more of her heart than she can give.


Dragon-shifter nobleman Lord Alek has not been lucky in finding his life mate. Resigned to a lonely life, he attends the bridal ceremony out of familial duty. Then the impossible happens--Kendall. Nothing goes according to tradition, but he can't let that dissuade him. She is this alpha male's only chance at happiness and he's not going to let her get away.

About the Dragon Lords Series Books 5 - 8

The Noblemen dragon shifter brothers aren't new to the sacred Qurilixian bridal ceremony. After several failed attempts at finding a wife, 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, these dragons will bond to their women forever. And once bonded, these men won't let go...

The Stubborn Lord is book 6 of the Dragon Lords series by Michelle M. Pillow. It tells the story of Kendall Haven and Lord Alek, Younger Duke of Draig. Kendall is kidnapped and drugged by thugs claiming her father bet her on the Larceny Casino Ship. She’s then sold to Galaxy Brides Corporation. Lord Alek, Younger Duke of Draig, has given up on finding his life mate after having gone through 4 attempts. But out of family duty he attends the bridal ceremony again. Then he sees Kendall and knows she is his mate. I love these characters. They are so fun, spirited and stubborn. The men are sexy alpha dragon shifters. The women are strong, spunky, independent women. The stories are fresh, action packed, funny and romantic. Everything you could want in a book. Great series.

I loved this Dragon Lord, he may act indifferent and look rough and tough but he has a heart of gold. He is very in with nature, animals and an artist at heart. Alek is the more sensitive of the brothers. Kendall has had a very difficult life running the family business, raising her young sister and trying to avoid losing everything because of her father's gambling habit. Little does she know that because of her father she is about to be thrust into Galaxy Brides and married to a very sexy and tempting Dragon Lord. Will she be able to resist his charm and get to her sister before she is subject to the same fate? This book is very suspenseful and full of love, sensitivity and passion I was gifted this book for an honest review.

Kendall is treated like a object and sold to the highest bidder cause of her fathers gambling. She fears her sister will meet the same fate and wants to try and get back to her. The interaction between the characters were interesting to watch unfold and how the storyline played out between them.

Kendall Haven has been repossessed because her father gambled her and lost.  She wakes up on the Galaxy Brides ship heading to Qurilixian to participate in the Draig Bridal Festival.  Kendall only wants to get back to the fueling station her father owns since she has a little sister she must take care of.  Once the ship lands, Kendall sneaks off the ship and runs into the forest so she can try to find another ship that will take her back. Lord Aleksej, Younger Duke of Draig, is not looking forward to another Bridal Festival.  This is his fourth festival and he believes it will be another unsuccessful year.  He has lived honorably but is losing faith that he will ever find a wife.  Instead of going into the temple before the ceremony, Alek takes a walk into the forest.  He rips his crystal from around his neck so he can leave it in the forest but is shocked when his crystal suddenly begins to glow.  He tracks Kendall down and talks her into her going to his tent while he goes back to the festival.   While in the tent with Alek, some of the Galaxy Brides people come looking for Kendall since she wasn't part of the bridal procession.  Alek explains to them that Kendall is his wife and is able to get the tracking device from them.  He convinces Kendall to complete the ceremony the next morning.  Kendall is still determined to go back to the fueling station.   Will Alek ever let Kendall go?  What does Kendall find when she gets back to the fueling station?  Guess you will have to read this to find out. This is a wonderful continuation of the Dragon Lords series.  I loved this story about Kendall and Alek.  He is so tender and loving with her throughout the story even though he knows he will be alone the rest of his very long life if she ever does leave.  I cannot wait to see what happens with the next brother in series.

The Stubborn Lord is Book 6 in the wonderful Dragon Lords Series by Michelle Pillow. This book focuses on Kendall and Alex, Kendall been repossessed and sold to Galaxy Brides due to her father's gambling debts, and Alex being the second youngest Royal cousin (His older brother the Duke). I like the storylines that involve the four cousins, an underlying subplot that threatens the entire planet of a hostile takeover for their mines, runs throughout the books and adds lots of intrigue and excitement to the romances. Alex finds Kendall in the forest, she has run away from the Breeding festival and immediately his crystal grows. He brings her back to his tent and vows to protect her from the men who had repossessed her. Like in the Duke's story, the wedding night does not go as planned and Alex fears punishment from the Gods. Kendall having grown up on a fueling station does not totally believe in any deities much less fated mating. I did miss the Galaxy Brides parade during the festival and more of the women's interactions during the celebratory dinner, I always found that part of this series fun, but this story was still a great addition to the series. Kendall is a bright smart loyal heroine, she has been finishing a degree and raising her younger sister. Her frantic attempts to get back home are not based on rejecting Alex or his planet but to save her sister from her father losing her in a gambling dept as well. Time passes differently depending which part of the Galaxy you are in. Kendall somehow doesn't find a conversion chart to find out how many years have passed for her sister which really would have been helpful. Alex doesn't totally understand Kendall's resistance to their marriage so their miscommunications lead to many complications. Including his wondering if she may be a spy. I did love the part of the story when they do finally clear things up and reveal their pasts and secrets. Alex is truly stubborn and a bit closed off. He and his brother Bron seem to be much more chauvinistic and male superiority types than their royal cousins, the princes. Still he is a handsome alpha warrior and the chemistry between Alex and Kendall is hot and romantic. They are a well matched couple. Besides the hot romance there is lots of excitement and adventure. Intertwining of this storyline with the previous book makes this part of the series more substantial. The phenomenal world building continues to expand drawing the reader further into this amazing series. The books should be read in order, there are many storylines and characters that build upon each other as the books progress. This series is awesome so starting from book one is the best way to treat yourself to an amazing reading experience.

After a downswing on the last two books, I really enjoyed this one. In a divergence from the prior books, this couple actually leaves the planet. The lord in this story, Alek, legitimately tries to do what the other men have skirted around- letting his woman go. All in all, good read!

This review is from: The Stubborn Lord (Dragon Lords Book 6) (Kindle Edition) After waiting so long he almost gives up but then his Crystal glows that's the only thing that goes as planed for this guy lol. This story has betrayal, kidnapping, action, romance and a whole lot more plus you get to hear up dates from other brother's. As with all of miss pillows dragon lords each one is so different and so are their mates. I loved it and I am looking forward to reading the next dragon lord book! Creative, well written and I could not put it down!

Number six and still anxiously awaiting my next book in the series. Ms Pillow does a really good job of making the stories separate and unique. As for some repetitiveness--if she didn't explain some background with each CONCURRENT story some would complain they were lost. I think she does a good job without over kill. The stories can stand alone, however each character becomes more endearing as the family story line unfolds. Kendall is on a Space Order Bride ship, however she didn't sign up but was taken as a lost gambling debt of her fathers. She has family concerns and obligations more pressing than just the kidnapping alone. Kept in stasis, she tries to escape as soon as she has landed on the planet. But the gods have sent her to Alek and he discovers her, saves her and marries her. She has no idea how sacred the vow is to Alek, only that she cannot stay but has to return home to her own obligations. Their love story is different because more than personal differences, family loyalty interferes. They enjoy each other--in other words this is a hot one. How much are they willing to give up to stay together, and can it be enough? Kendall learns some hard truths that make her duty seem even more impossible. Will Alek be able to help her with his own family obligations? Read this one and enjoy the battle, not among the lovers, but the situations that want to separate them. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

Okay, the samples of everything on Nook suck since they're all just the fist six pages. However, I really liked her style of writing and the plot was great. Has unsuspected turns, cute romance and some hot sex, all the best ingredients for a good romance read. Loved it. Check out her other series if this doesn't sound like your cup of tea.
