premier opus de la série dragon kind, ce livre est sexy et très drole. La rencontre entre une princesse en cavale, pas du tout en détresse et un dragon qui voulait surtout etre tranquille est vraiment sympathique. Cela n'empeche pas l'action et les scenes sexy mais cela change agréablement des livres très "noirs". On lit ça sans s'arreter. Beaucoup de personnages secondaires très attachants. Je me suis dépéchée d'acheter le suivant et je n'ai pas été déçue.

Un pur plaisir! Ce livre débute bien la série de G.A. Aiken.
La princesse sanglante ne fait pas dans la demi-mesure et sa relation avec son dragon est particulièrement intense.
Les personnages secondaires mis en place présagent une suite des plus déléctable..

Bon alors, résumons-nous, un peu de bagarre où l'héroïne est meilleure que superman, puis sexe et bondage, bondage et sexe, un peu de bagarre .... et on recommence. Le héros a un gros pénis engorgé (excusez-moi pendant que je rigole), ça c'est le point important du livre, et l'héroïne est folle à lier de désir pour lui, évidemment. En dehors des nombreuses scènes de sexe, le reste est extrêmement ennuyeux. Quant aux scènes de sexe, bien sûr chacun ses goûts, mais je crois que c'est encore plus caricatural que le reste du livre.

4.5 stars - Great dragon shifter tale - plus bonus short 7 septembre 2008
Par melindeeloo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I loved the main story Dragon Actually (which started out as a short story originally epublished as To Challenge a Dragon). This dragonshifter tale had all of the trademark brashness, humor and steamy intensity you would expect from Aiken a Shelley Laurenston alto ego.

If you're a fan of any of the author's other books you'll be pleased to see how well Aiken's trademark uber-alpha female lead translates to the medieval time frame of the book. Annwyl the Bloody is fatally wounded and outnumbered but still fighting to take as many of her vile brother's warriors along with her through death's door. Just about the time the Annwyl is about to lose her head, literally, her foes' smug satisfaction at their looming victory turns to terror and flaming death courtesy of the horned black dragon on whose doorstep Annwyl is dying. Much to the dragon Fearghus' the surprise, the bloody woman meets his fierce dragon's gaze without fear and her bravery intrigues him enough than instead of making her a tasty snack, he brings her into his lair and sees to her healing. As time goes by the dour dragon hermit, who preferred a quiet solitary life, is amused and captivated by the bold, fearless woman. When Annwyl begins to heal, Fearghus provides an irritating but powerful Knight to help Annwyl hone the battle skills which will allow her to defeat her odious abusive sibling. Annwyl spends her days in bruising training with her helpful but annoying `adversary' and her nights talking with Fearghus, torn between the powerful lust she feels for the Knight and the comfort and friendship she feels for the dragon.

Annwyl's `two' relationships are what really make this story. Her relationship with the despised but oh so attractive Knight was combustible, laden with sexual tension and with verbal sparring (along with some physical sparring too), but where her relationship with the Knight burned hot and fast, with Fearghus it was a slowly building deeper connection, as the two let down their guards and shared themselves in a way that neither had allowed before. Adding even more fun to the story, Dragon Actually is chockfull of supporting dragon characters, many of Fearghus' fabulous siblings turn up to help or to stir up mischief, most all of them deserve stories of their own.

The second story Flames in Chains, also previously epublished, was the story of Fearghus' parents `courtship'. Fearghus' father Bercelek, a fearsome battle dragon, has always had a soft spot for the dragon Princess Rhiannon who loathes him. Fearghus was great, in his unrelenting campaign to win the mate who is now within his grasp and the advantage is finally his since she's stuck in human form and can't shift to dragon in order to flee him. This story had some great moments and Bercelek's odd ball dragon parents and siblings, like his children in the previous story, were a kick. But I didn't like Flames and Chains as well as the first story. If you are an erotic reader my nits with the story won't bother you, but an increase in the frequency and coarsenss of the language used, along with the chains and spanking, though both of these were very mild by erotica standards, knocked this one down a notch for me where Dragon Actually managed to toe, but not cross, the line for me.

Overall though I still will be checking out Aiken's next book About A Dragon (Dragon Kin, Book 2) (turns out this is a reissue of Laurenston's The Distressing Damsel: Book 2 of the Dragon Kin) in which the first - of hopefully many - of Fearghus' siblings get their turn in the spot light. If you like Dragon Actually be sure to check out Aiken's pride and pack stories written as Shelley Laurenston, they are also full of pushy alpha shifter males (lion/wolf) claiming their oh so dangerous mates and though not as violent, the stories share the same fast paced humorous tone as these two stories.

Here are a couple of her more recent books to check out:
The Mane Event (Pride, Book 1)
The Beast in Him (Pride, Book 2)

Laurenston's Dragon Kin
Dragon Actually ("To Challenge A Dragon" Ferghus & Annywl, plus "Flames and Chains" Ferghus' parents Rhiannon and Bercelek)
About A Dragon (Dragon Kin, Book 2) (Ferghus' brother Briec this is a reissue of The Distressing Damsel: Book 2 of the Dragon Kin)
Everlasting Bad Boys (Bercelek's parents Aidean and Shalin)

Wonderfully Witty 19 avril 2009
Par Amy C - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Annwyl, a tough, no-nonsense warrior, leader of the rebellion against her brother who rules the kingdom, finds herself gravely wounded. But she just so happens to be outside the lair or a dragon--Fearghus, a recluse. Bringing Annwyn into his lair to save her, he senses something about her, he's drawn to her as he's never been drawn to another human or dragon before.

Fearing that Annwyl is not strong enough to beat her evil brother, Fearghus offers a mysterious knight to train her. Annwyl agrees. Little does Annwyl know the knight is none other than Fearghus the Dragon!

Annwyl is tormented by the brutish knight training her. Hating him, yet wanting him. The bantering between the two was highly engaging and very well done! Annwyl is in lust with the the knight by day, yet falling in love with the dragon by night.

It's a hopeless battle of wills between Annwyl and Fearghus and one that was very entertaining to read.

Even though she is known as Annwyl the Bloody, and he as Fearghus the Destroyer, the romance was actually very sweet and fun. I really enjoyed the dialogue between the two, sometimes very comical.

I enjoyed Dragon Actually immensely. There's action, head-lopping, a bastard brother who deserves all the anger and rage Annwyl feels toward him. And of course some really great dragon petting :). And human petting!

Dragon Actually, is actually only 217 pages. The remaining 116 pages is a short story, Chains and Flames, which is Feargus's parents.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good dragon romping story. It was fun, exciting and did not drag anywhere. The characters were extremely likable. And Fearghus's siblings added a delightful touch to this story. Just imagine sibling rivalry between a bunch of very large, very strong dragons! I loved reading this book and hope the second one, About a Dragon has the same witty humor as this one.

I WANT MY VERY OWN FERGHUS!!!! 17 décembre 2008
Par M. Hebdige - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
First let's inform the reader that G.A. Aiken is Shelly Laurenston. For those who are familiar with Shelly's work, her writing is touching, with hilarious repartee, solid female heroines and very alpha male heroes. Her sex scenes are very graphic (both descriptive and in terminology) and her stories are a rare treat for paranormal fans. She is in my instant buy category!

DRAGON ACTUALLY consists of two stories.
TO CHALLENGE A DRAGON is the story of Ferghus and Annywl and set in a mythical/medieval world of creatures living among humans.

Ferghus is an ancient dragon. He has lived alone for centuries and wants nothing more than peace and quiet in his lair without interference. Annywl The Bloody is mortally wounded outside his cave and the ruckus she has created polishing off her enemies has woken Ferghus. As he steps put of the cave he finds Annywl dying. Her fierce bravado takes him aback, so instead of making her an appetizer he takes her into his lair cave and saves her life.

Ferghus is fascinated with Annywl. He's not been interested in anything in centuries and her honest and stalwart persona intrigues him. She as is fierce as she is angry. Annywl has earned her name well - all Annywl the Bloody knows is how to kill defending herself from her brother's armies who seek her death. As Ferghus learns more about Annywl, he realizes that for her to succeed and kill her evil brother and claim her kingdom, she will need to control her anger.

Dragons are able to shift into human form (something that has been a sacred secret for centuries). Ferghus becomes a human knight by day, instructing Annywl with her fighting skills as well as mastering her temper and her dragon by night.

Annywl strikes an amazing kinship and relationship with her dragon, and Ferghus is more that startled to realize he is coming to care too much for this fierce slip of a girl, as he desires her human body more than he has desired anyone in his long existence.

In TO CHALLENGE A DRAGON, we are introduced to many of Ferghus's family and siblings - who bring hilarious banter to the dialogue. Aiken (Laurenston) has created a marvelous, mythical dragon world, where you actually believe these creatures exist. There is brutality and graphic violence in the bloody battle scenes and the sex is raw and uninhibited. This is a magnificent story - not for the faint hearted - but for those who like "meat" in their books!

FLAMES AND CHAINS - is the story of Ferghus's parents Bercerek and Princess Rhiannon - who becomes queen of the Dragon world. Their tale is short but entertaining and funny. Just as good as TO CHALLENGE A DRAGON, with the sexual scenes even hotter, juicier and more graphic! (You will need to fan yourself to cool the flames!!! LOL!)

Aiken's (Laurenston) storytelling has the ability to create amazingly gripping stories with unforgettable characters. She paints a vivid, surreal world, incorporating the right amount of Magik, awesome creatures, great action and terrific sex.

ABOUT A DRAGON is the next book in the Dragon Kin series.

Nice Premise, Execution Needs Help 7 octobre 2012
Par Lisa Shea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
The book "Dragon Actually" by G. A. Aiken (also known as Shelly Laurenston) looks like a normal length romance novel. It's actually two short novels in one. The first 2/3rds is a story about Annwyl the swordswoman and Fearghus, the black dragon she falls in love with. The remainder of the book is a separate story that tells how Fearghus's mother and father get together.

First, Annwyl and Faerghus. Annwyl has been raised to wield a sword and barely survived a childhood with a hostile brother. Now she and her brother are leading armies against each other. When she's nearly slain in battle, she happens to fall in Fearghus's domain. He is inspired by her bravery and, as he nurses her back to health, he falls in love with her. He can shape-shift into human form, so unbeknownst to her, he also seduces her in that form. This is the classic "fall in love with two halves of a man's personality" that shows up in so many stories. She never guesses they're the same man, as all these stories somehow manage, and she feels that she has to choose between them.

I adore the idea of a strong, capable woman, and of a man who can stand loyally at her side. This is my ideal setup for a romance. However, there are several issues here.

First, author Aiken wrote this in 2004 and it appears to be one of her first novels, if not the first one. This first-novel status shows in the writing style. There are typos, grammatical errors, point of view issues, omniscient characters, and other issues that an editor should have cleaned up. The issues tends to continually draw the reader out of immersion with the story.

The author writes in a medieval-fantasy universe but hasn't done enough research to thoroughly ground that world. Her swords have "handles" rather than hilts. Her female warrior strolls through a battlefield cleanly lopping off heads and arms as if she wields a light saber rather than an actual sword. Annwyl has a wound involving a blade "tearing through [her] organs". She shows no surprise when she wakes up with mere stitches. She should have expressed an appreciation that there was serious magic involved in her healing; that organ wounds are pretty much always fatal.

We barely see this world in which they live. I'm not asking for Tolkienesque details about the veining in leaves and the size of the ripples in the pond. But when a massive treasure room is simply said to have "gold and jewels" and a stunning palace isn't even described at all, something is missing. This world they walk through needs at least a tiny amount of description to become real.

The writing in general seems to be "crude". The F word is flung around. I'm not a prude, but there are a wealth of other more powerful words that can be used to far more effect. Everyone is calling everyone else a b*tch. Surely after the 80th time it gets a little wearying.

The ending feels fairly weak. It doesn't seem to wrap the story up in a meaningful way.

Then on to the parents' story. Rhiannon is a spoiled princess, and Bercelak is a mere low-born warrior. She is always nasty and snipy and b*tchy. He is patient and alpha-male. Oh, wait. This is the exact same situation with the previous story. In both cases the women thrill in being nasty, and the guys dominate them as their way of evening the score. In fact Bercelak claims "the meaner the better". What? A good relationship is based on people being nasty to each other? That's fine for short term lust, but study after study shows that being mean and nasty predicts a breakup after the lust stage ends.

Of course, Rhiannon is soon enthralled by Bercelak's alpha maleness and she thrills that she can "pretend to be a slag" (i.e. whore) simply by saying stop but not saying the safe-word "no". Bercelak's mom even chimes in that she adores being with her husband, not because of love, but because of the hot sex.

Let me say I'm not put off by the idea of an alpha male. If Rhiannon enjoys being tied up and having Bercelak dominate her, and if Annwyl enjoys being at Faerghus's beck and call, then that is fine. It's not the continual bondage and dominance that makes the book have issues. It's the women acting as if they're thirteen years old, whining, pouting, complaining, and then obsessing about their partner's male organ as if they've never seen one before. In both cases the women are VERY familiar with men's body parts so it is completely out of character. It makes no sense for their background.

Similarly, both men act like petulant teenage boys, either wounded by a snipy comment made by their woman, or obsessing at length about either her chest or her rear. Half the time it seems all they see when they look at their woman. Chest, rear. Rear, chest. These aren't supposed to be sixteen year old boys. They're supposedly full grown men who have had countless women and who have settled into maturity. Yes I can see them *appreciate* a woman's form. That's different than drooling over it every other page.

It makes me a bit depressed that apparently the only way one can read about a strong, sword-wielding female character is to then saddle her with childish traits to off-set that strength. Is she too threatening otherwise, if she were actually intelligent and wise? And surely if her sword skills were a key trait, they should be portrayed realistically, even within the fantasy world confines?

I'll give this pair of stories a 3/5. I enjoy the premise, and enjoy the idea of a strong female character. However, the poor writing, the internal inconsistencies, and the continual teenage-style behavior of the main characters does not leave me wanting more.

This book is such a gem! I loved the notion of a 'dragon boyfriend'. The hero and heroine are wonderful, and the story is laced with such funny moments. I love the secondary characters as well, and the sibling relationships in the dragon family are such fun. Rarely does a paranormal romance find equal romance, plot, action, and humor, but G.A. Aiken is a genius and she's got it all here in this book. This is one of the best! (I have read her second books of this series, which I loved just as much).
