Publisher's Summary

Lucian: I am a Dragon Prince of the House of Smoke...and I am dying. Five hundred years is truly enough for a man like me. A monster. Yet a 10,000-year treaty will die with me, if I don't spawn a dragonling to take my place. My two brothers are no use in this task. It falls to me, the eldest by a hair's breadth, and yet, I cannot face the horror of another sealing. Another death. Another woman's blood on my hands.

Arabella: I was saved from death in a dark Seattle alley by an impossibly beautiful man who swooped in on golden wings. Now he's taken me to his lair, opened my eyes to a world of immortals I didn't know existed, and given me an impossible task - find him a mate. Then, and only then, will he set me free. He needs her more than he wants; she wants him more than she should. The fate of both the mortal and immortal worlds depends on not just repairing their hearts, but finding a love that's true....

DNF

Didn’t particularly care about the characters nor the story. The summary sounded good and the reviews were mostly good so I was looking forward to it.
Seems rushed in terms of the relationship then lots of backstory for the other stuff, not allowing the relationship to develop believably.

WHEN THE GOING GETS GOOD, IT ENDS W/ A CLIFFHANGER


Why Oh, Why! Just when it was getting good, it ends on a cliffhanger!!! Arghhhh! Had I known this audio ended with a cliffhanger, I would have skipped it!

I love a good dragon shifter story, and Kiss of a Dragon's plot does start with a good foundation, and has the potential to deliver a story full of angst, suspense, action and steamy romance; however, the whole story will be told over three books. In my opinion, if an author is going to write a story about two characters over a series, the author has to hook the reader right from the beginning with a captivating plot, great characters and plot twists that will entice the reader to want to come back for more. While the story had an interesting plot, overall it left me with a lukewarm feeling. I'm actually on the fence about continuing the story, and it really depends on how fast the other two books are released in audio.

Some Spoilers:
This story reminded me of Coreene Callahan's Dragonfury series, which I loved, and is one of the main reasons why I wanted to listen to this story. Lucian, a 500 year old dragon shifter must fulfill an age old treaty to keep the peace by mating and producing an heir. When he meets Arabella, he senses she is strong enough to withstand the mating process. In order to form a mating bond, the union must be formed from true love. After assisting Arabella with killing a demon, he captures her under the rouse of needing her assistance to find a suitable mate for him; however, his true motives are to seduce Arabella so she falls in love with him. The idea of mating, and being around Arabella is dredging up old hurtful memories he rather leave in the past. To ensue the past doesn't repeat itself, he refuses to fall in love with Arabella. After all, the mating bond only needs one true love to form the bond.

There was an instant connection between the characters, and the authors does a good job developing their relationship. However, the chemistry and romance between them is on the milder side, and just when things are really starting to heat up, the story ends.

This PNR just showcases how well Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell can narrate just about anything. Their performance really helped make this story more appealing.

The one thing I loved about this story, it's a KU/whispersync deal which helped soften the blow from the cliffhanger. Rating 3.5 stars.

Disappointed

This book started off really great. It reminds a of the Dragon Fury books by Collen Callahan. It also reminded me a bit of the books by Christine Feehan, The dark series. The book has a great plot and the characters are great. I was looking forward to a new series about Dragons and i was disappointed that the book has a major cliff hanger. Being that i do more listening to audio book rather than read i feel let down. Now i either have to read them or hope they come out in audio book form. I wish at least the first three about Lucien would have been in audio book. I did not know it had a big cliff hanger or i would have waited . Other than that the story line is really great.

Be warned CLIFFHANGER ahead

I was gifted this audio ARC from the author/ Narrator for a honest and unbiased review.
Alisa Woods is a God od authors. She has once again outdid herself with Kiss of the Dragon. The only thing that I didn't like was it's a cliffhanger!
Joe Arden Maxine Mitchell narrated with skill.
I really enjoy a good dragon shifter story, this book doesn't disappoint! The plot starts with a fantastic foundation full of suspense, action and steamy romance.
There was an instant connection between the characters, the author does a good job developing their relationship, then book ends grrrrr.
I believe this audio book is worth a credit, or get the actual book and get the audio for much less.

couldn't finish the story

Sadly, I couldn't finish the story. The storyline it's self seemed interesting...but I just couldn't get past the woman narrators voice inflection is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I couldn't get past the second chapter... definitely one that I wish I could get my money back on.

The book and characters were well-written

A pure dragon shifter romance, I'm not much on shifters but the book and characters were well-written as was the storyline. Since I own both the Kindle & Audible versions I was able to follow along while being read to.

Insanely Brilliant and Exqusitely Stunning!

Kiss of a Dragon is an insanely brilliant and exquisitely stunning romance that will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat. Nothing is as wonderful as a highly satisfying journey of two well developed characters who see their forever in the other while working through real issues in a meticulously crafted world that has no end to its wonder and awe. This was such a joy to read and savor!

I fell in love with all of the characters. They are each such a mystery wrapped in a beautiful package of intrigue and tied up with a bow of sensuality. I never tire of different takes on the paranormal myths. In fact, I love the variety. It is a welcome break of fresh air to a sometime stale world of fiction.

The narrators did a fabulous job in speaking life and heart into each beautiful character involved in this story. They make my world tilt on its axis as I suffered and cheered along with the brilliant characters along their treacherous yet glorious path. I can't to see what happens next!!

The story was lost on me

It might have been a good yarn. I just couldn’t get past the female narrator. She sounded straight valley. Even when she was doing male characters. Wtf?!?! So the book may have been good but I couldn’t listen to the valley chick no more... might have made it halfway... this one just read!!

Was not what I expected

What would have made Kiss of a Dragon better?

Better storyline more background

How could the performance have been better?

Yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Kiss of a Dragon?

An actual dragon? Maybe I would of had a dragon tattoo on his back that came alive and gave him
Special powers

Any additional comments?

Couldn’t finish this can I get my credit back?
