"Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, 'Gwevael the Handsome, you are the best among us--the most loved of all dragons?' No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer. So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call The Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying...woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman--one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor? And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart?"--p. [4] of cover.… (més)

Really liked this one. ( )

Dagmar is called the Beast, she's cunning, clever and manipulative and likes to mess with people just as much as Gwenvael the Ruiner. Lots of laugh outloud moments as these two forge an alliance with Annwyl. All the characters intertwining as they try to find a way to save Annwyl, her babies and protect the lands from invasion.

My review:

I loved this book. It had everything. Humor by the wheelbarrow, intrigue suspense and love. I love the characters, their irreverence as well as their humor and interaction with one another. Absolutely Brilliant. I am a big fan. Well worth reading

Synopsis:
Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, "Gwenvael the Handsome, you are the best among us--the most loved of all dragons?" No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer.

So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call The Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying. . .woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman--one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor?

And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart? ( )

What a Dragon Should Know
3.5 Stars

Better than the first two but still have some issues with it.

The romance is lighthearted and fun - Gwenvael and Dagmar are a lovely couple and their ability to manipulate with words rather than swords is entertaining. The bookish and sharp-tongued Dagmar is my favorite heroine so far (brains over brawn any day) and the slutty Gwenvael grows on you like a fungus.

Nevertheless, the world building is still underdeveloped. New characters with little background are introduced and the nature of the dragons' magick remains unexplained. Moreover, Annwyl's fighting abilities are definitely over the top unrealistic.

The plot is an amalgamation of various threads, which are well integrated overall, although there are sections that drag on a bit. The action scenes are exciting and the dysfunctional dragon family a total riot!

Looking forward to continuing with more dragon shenanigans. ( )

~ 5 What a Dragon Stars ~

What a Dragon Should Know is book three in the Dragon Kin series by G.A. Aiken. I absolutely love thee’s dragon! This series has captured my heart and keeps me coming back.

What a Dragon Should Know is a re-read for me. I love diving back into this world. Dagmar is the only daughter of The Reinholdt. She is a masterminded politician that kicks ass and can hold her own amongst the warriors, with a sharp tongue and iron will. Gwenvael the Handsome is the most fun-loving of all the dragons next to Eibhear. No one takes him seriously and that he uses to his advantage. I loved his attitude and sluttiness along with his loyalty to family. The author always finds a way to make the leads complement eachother, especially when they are an unlikely match. What I love most is that you feel the connections between the characters whether they are family, friends, or mates. The love that flows with the romance is strong and believable. The humor and banter is always great fun to read about and we get to see previous couples come back along with seeing how their relationships continue to develop.

I will always come back to this series. I can’t get enough of the fun loving, witty, sexy dragons! I highly recommend pick up the Dragon Kin.
