Publisher's Summary

Dragon Shifter Novel

Dragon shifters are a dying breed. There are so few females left that if drastic measures are not taken, and soon, it'll be over for the species. The threat of extinction looms.

King Blaze finally accepts that there is no other option but to evoke an age-old tradition. The Hunt.

The eligible dragon shifter males must hunt a handful of females. It's first catch, first serve. The biggest problem is that the females are human. Despite feedback to the contrary, Coal thinks they are weak and breakable. In his opinion, not capable of surviving the hunt, let alone the mating that will follow. He doesn't believe that a lowly human is capable of birthing him a royal heir, so why has his brother, the king, tasked him with claiming one?

He can't believe this is happening to him. Especially when most of the males in their tribe are willing to accept one of these puny females. Not him. He's never rutted with one and doesn't have any desire, whatsoever, to rut with one in the future, let alone mate and impregnate one. Claiming one of these females will not be an easy feat considering there are three other dragon tribes vying for the opportunity. How the hell is he supposed to do all of this when he doesn't want to come within a mile of one of these unsavory creatures? Guaranteed HEA!

The story contains strong sexual themes/language and is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

***fire Dragon***

I have read this since it came out on digital form so I decided to listen to it and wow its tottaly different, now I have a voice to put on the characters not just imagining it.
It helps that the narrators are excellent thanks to both Stella Bloom and Sebastian York.

first book by this author

I liked the twist regarding a dragon shifter. Julie moved very quickly by the middle of the book....seemed to be rushed....not sure if I liked that . seems like a lot more could have happened before she caved

VERY EROTIC

Royal Dragon had so much potential. The premise of the storyline is a good one. But the story is only one dimensional. The story is under developed and so are the characters. With that said I did enjoy it. This is a very erotic story and I really liked the H/H. I will read the next book in the series in hopes that the storyline is more developed.

Narrators were OK but they needed to let the female narrator do all of the female speaking parts and the Male Narrator do all of the male speaking parts instead of each one reading a chapter.

Well....

I know I may get flack for this but I think they could've left Sebastian out of this one. Stella out performed him. I am all for the York train believe you me but for some reason he didn't bring it this time. I found myself distracted by his portrayal of the female lead and even the male. A little on the monotone side actually. Maybe he wasn't into the work ,Idk but I was disappointed with it. I actually checked to see if he narrated book two and when I seen he was i cringed😖. Dang it!

Too vulgar, not enough character development

The story had potential but didn't reach it. If you just want to read about the characters sex and how big it is then I suppose it's okay. If you are you looking for a story you might try elsewhere.

Kind of Blah

Any additional comments?

I love Sebastian York and PRN. So, I thought this was going to be a fantastic book. It wasn't only not fantastic. It was just blah. The story was rushed, characters were not developed at all. The story started out strong, and then, suddenly half-way through, it felt like the author just wanted to finish it and rushed it to the climax and end.

Even with Sebastian York, I wouldn't bother with this book.

Human females: helping save dragons from extinction, since 2016

Julie is down on her luck, but doesn't expect to be dragged off by a dragon and forced to run in the Hunt. Coal is a Prince of the Flame Dragons who is ordered into the Hunt for a female by his brother and King, Blaze. The competition for these few human females is fierce; they may be all that stands between the dragons and extinction. And that's about as deep as this book gets. Having said that, its fine for when you want that total escape read - when you don't want to engage your brain.

Bloom is fine as a narrator. Really like York's voice, period. But - I'm so used to hearing it with a contemporary story, that I don't know how to feel about him reading a "paranormal".

Love these Alpha Dragons

A few years ago I read the complete series and loved each of the books. Even though each book is a stand a lone, each book is still intertwined with each other. So, I would encourage you to read in order.

Initially, the hunt seems barbaric, but as you get into the story, it all starts to make sense as the Dragons try to figure out the best approach to win over these tenacious human woman. Julie is very head strong and repels at the idea of being a dragon baby mama, even if the Dragon race is practically becoming instinct since female Dragons are becoming more difficult to mate with. For as much as Julie wants to resist this hot steamy Dragon man, he can be oh so persuasive and it becomes harder and harder to resist this Alpha male.

This book has hot sex scenes along with a good story,. Plus, the two narrators are fabulous which make this book so much fun to listen to. my only complaint on the book series is each book is fairly short. 4.5 stars.

Not the best book i've read.

Last 50 percent is way too sugary sweet! It was like what girls fantasize about guys saying in such feminine way rather than masculine. He was alpha for about 25 percent of book, then he was a push over. Couldn't wait to drop readng it. Won't be reading book 2.

A dragon love story like no other!

This story had it all! Love, romance, shifters, a little danger and thought provoking situations. Looking forward to the next!
