    One thought on “Dragon Lovers (Includes: Guardians #2.5)”

    1. Dreadful Cloyingly sweet I feel like I ve gorged myself on electric colored cotton candy and will be sick at any moment.Avoid avoid avoid.The Dragon and the Virgin Princess Jo Beverley In which the reader learns that dragon slobber is erotic to humans, that dragons have the conversational skills of the average three year old child, and that an alternative method of collecting virgin princess blood by taking a small amount from several instead of nine pints from one is far too ridiculous for the [...]

    2. The four stories in this anthology have in common dragon related plots and romance in half the stories, one of the lovers is a dragon The first story deals with a virgin princess kidnapped by a dragon rider The second story has a knight sent to slay a dragon, who is later persuaded to defend the dragon and the dragon s granddaughter The third story deals with a Dutchwoman in 17th century Japan who meets a dragon and a samurai while considering her options for the future The fourth and final stor [...]

    3. A 4 story anthology with dragons being the theme There is mostly implied sex, nothing really explicit Jo Beverley 4 stars This is a peculiar little story, set in another world with 2 opposing cultures Saragond is like medieval England Rozlinda is the chief princess Rouar is a dragoneer from Dornan, a culture which revolves around the dragons, which are benevolent I didn t like Zlinda when she was a shreiking shrew, however, you have to cut her some slack She s only 19, ripped from her family cul [...]

    4. This is an anthology featuring four short stories by acclaimed authors.The first story is titled The Dragon and the Virgin Princess by Jo Beverley I really enjoyed this story It was about a dragoner who took a SVP Sacrificial Virgin Princess as his bride, for her to be a true sacrifice for the dragons survival Will the dragoner fall for his princess bride, you ll have to read to find out.The second story is titled The Dragon and the Dark Knight by Mary Jo Putney I thought this was a very good st [...]

    6. In a refreshing change from vampires and werewolves and zombies oh my , four authors probe what it would be like to have a dragon for a mate The stories are well told, brimming with familiar themes as damsels in distress, daring duels, beleaguered princesses, brave knights and magical spells But the directions are original, fascinating and sexy, as the title suggests, with dangers not always coming from the expected sources.There is passion as well and sexual heat, although the erotic scenes are [...]

    7. I d honestly been wondering lately if I ve just grown too cynical or jaded from my years of reading romances and fantasy and science fiction the romance and fantasy books I ve picked up most often these days all seem to be dreck And I m reading them from recs which scares me even shudder But I took a chance once on this book when I saw it come up on a if you like x, you might like y list dragons, after all, are one of my most favorite fantasy creatures.Took a chance and was pleasantly surprise [...]

    8. As with all anthologies, this book is only as strong as the stories inside and I really bounced back and forth between loving the book and tossing it into my charity donation stack.The best, IMO, is Anna and the King of Dragons by Karen Harbaugh, dipping into the Asian well of dragon lore and crafting an expert story that had me going until the very end The other three were interesting, but not enough to make me rush to see what else the authors had written One actually had me wondering if I had [...]

    9. Super surprise, wonderful adventures, unexpected turns and twists in the first two stories e last was nice too I didn t take the title literally so here I find myself reading romance dragon style and romance is not my interest but I got some good laughs and met some fine dragons, worthwhile.

    10. Four different tales that were lovely, rendering dragons and loves and lovers in new to me, anyway stories I enjoyed the light, dreamy fantasy of the stories I will have to check out by the two authors I m unfamiliar with.

    11. This novella made me reconsider my reading position on her Guardian series I had put them back as being too close to Mercedes Lackey s Elemental Masters premise, but this story set in WWII Scotland was unputdownable.It is a great anthology with strong offerings from all the contributors.

    12. Two of the authors in this anthology are among my favorites and the other two a new adventure Every once in a while I have to feed my inner princess and dream of castles and dragons This book was one I couldn t put downa nice piece of escapism.

    13. Beverly s take on the sacrificial virgin princess is hilarious but otherwise this book was just sort of okay the subject ideas were good but somehow the execution was just lacking.

    14. Four short stories about dragons and lovers by four different authors With any collection, the stories will not match up equally with each other, hence the three stars I liked Barbara Samuel s Dragon Feathers the best I had the most trouble getting through Anna and the King of Dragons by Karen Harbaugh Please don t let that affect you enjoyment of the book YMMV.Ruthi s paperback book Looked liked an interesting change of pace Passion takes wing in four all new stories from New York Times bestsel [...]

    15. Huh.Let s see the first tale by Jo Beverly was justodd The dragons have to eat rocks, but not just any rocks, green rocks, and speshul blood only found in one family in order to lay eggs Andey only lay eggs every 8 years Seven years ago, a man the h s sister cared for killed the dragon so he could have the sister as a wife he being too lowborn otherwise So only a dragon who d already laid eggs can do so again in an off year Also it takes blood to accomplish said feat Eh, long story short, the d [...]

    16. This book is a good read for a quick fix and if you want to read about a range of dragons from different cultures From the Mayan Aztec Quetzalcoatl, to the Japanese ryuu, and to the classic European dragons, all aspects from all corners are explored in this collection of stories Romance is present in all four of the stories Perhaps it s just my preferences, and I don t mean any of the four stories are badly written, but coming from a history of reading lots of dragon lore and lots of fantasy lit [...]

    17. Dragon Lovers is an anthology of four stories, all centered around both dragons and a romance Contrary to the title, not all of the romance actually includes a dragon, which was a pleasant surprise One of the strengths of the collection is that it presents four very different takes on dragon lore and no two settings are alike Unfortunately, there s not much else to love here The first story, The Virgin Princess and the Dragon by Jo Beverly, is over the top and ridiculous, but highly entertaining [...]

    18. I m a huge dragon fan, so I had to read this book The Dragon and the Virgin Princess by Jo Beverley was well written and kept me interested I enjoyed Seesee the dragon , and I liked that the SVP Sacrificial Virgin Princess had attitude The Dragon and the Dark Knight by Mary Jo Putney was an awesome twist to the traditional tale of slaying the dragon In this case spoiler alert , the dragons had their own knight as a champion Anna and the King of Dragons by Karen Harbaugh was my favorite Having en [...]

    19. Four interesting fantasy stories using dragon imagery for a lover Sort of beauty meets beast In the Dragon and the Virgin Princess by Jo Beverly, we find that the dragon is actually the catalyst for a meeting of two opposing factions and the joining of these two factions so that the families can continue to live in peace This was actually an interesing tale In the Dragon and the Dark Knight, we have a sort of reverse beauty and the beast as the dragon is the lady This tale is a bit far fetched b [...]

    20. Some of these sounded so promising I think the first one was the best, but it was still difficult to follow as it establishes a new universe with certain rules and trying to figure them out was difficult And the weirdness of dragon drool was just too much The second one was quite boring and unmemorable The third one was probably my favorite premise, but I wasn t a fan of the setting In my opinion, Feudal Japan was just NOT romantic sorry for the lovers of the Tale of Genji And it wasn t all that [...]

    21. This is an anthology of 4 dragon stories by 4 well known authors An enjoyable book with mixed results The Dragon and the Virgin Princess1st story by Jo Beverly and unfortunately I didn t really like it Seemed very childish and weak.2 starsThe Dragon and the Dark Knight This second book is by Mary Jo Putney and I enjoyed it It was well written and very sweet.3.5 stars Anna and the King of Dragons The third story is by Karen Harbuagh and it is set in Japan It has a different feel to it and I liked [...]

    22. So, I had a vague memory of reading this book when I was younger back when I literally checked out every book that came up when I searched dragon on the library database I remember being revolted by some kind of romantic display of affection, a kiss, I think I was 9 and a tomboy, what can I say When I read the title Dragon Lovers I thought it was talking about people who really liked dragons You know, like me I definitely never thought it was people who were attracted to Dragons in humanoid form [...]

    23. What a cute little book I normally don t enjoy short stories because of the little time allowed to develop the characters, but this collection was really pretty decent I think it helped that each story was about 100 pgs long much better than the usual 15 50 pgs in most books By far my favorite was the first story silly but fun writing style, good character development, and a very interesting setting I actually plan on looking up this author s other works very soon The next story I liked was the [...]

    24. This was a pretty good book I liked all the stories and there story lines There was one I didn t like as much as the others but overall a great book I liked the different feelings and environments each story had and how they all centered on dragons, but different types and styles The order of the stories was good too The ending was a great This was a fun read and had humor, some suspense, emotions, and a great mystical and magical feel I definitely wouldn t mind reading this again Enjoy

    25. I mainly checked this book out to read the Putney story I did try to read Beverly s but couldn t get through the first page it started as a poorly written period story Putney s story was about a knight who intends to fight a dragon to win a fiefdom from a local baron It turns out the dragon is actually a protector of men and the local baron has turned on the dragon and his own people to try to claim the dragon s treasure The dragon has a granddaughter with whom the knight falls in love The drago [...]

    26. The four stories in it were written by Jo BeverleyMary Jo PutneyKaren HarbaughBarbara SamuelWhat I liked about the anthology is that each of the stories were quite original, both in topic and cultures It ranged from historical to contemporary to fantasy From Regency England to Japan to present day Santa Fe to an awesome fantasy world.I also liked the variety of voices of the authors No two weresimilar in tone or temperament Very refreshing.

    27. Four stories centering around dragons The first by Jo Beverley just so so, a virgin princess who is to be sacrificed to the dragon blood and then falls for the dragon s keeper The second story by Putney about a knight who ends up falling in love with a 1 2 dragon girl, the third a story about a japanese shapeshifter dragon, and the 4th, the best, about a Mexican god dragon with pink feathers.

    28. my husband reserved this at the library for me as a joke, because I love anything with dragons in it It was actually pretty good there are 3 stories, and only one of them was really stupid The stories are exactly what it looks like romance novel in sci fi book where there also are dragons not romance with dragons o

    29. This is a beautiful group of stories about people loving dragons, and I enjoyed the story progressions from middle ages to present day I also liked the fact that each story took place on a different continent excepting the first story, which was set in a fantasy world Each story had its own unique flare, but they all also had a very cohesive feeling.

    30. I like Jo Beverly and I love dragons but this anthology was rather flat The romances weren t that romantic and the dragons weren t that sexy The writing was fine, but there s little else to recommend this Oh well.
