Consoling a sobbing dragon and serving pig buffets are just part of the job for Myrna Banks. Working for a mediation firm, it’s her job to get humans compensated for damages caused by the dragons who now rule. But her “typical” day is interrupted by Trian Chobardan, an old flame who sneaked out of her bed two years ago, taking her heart and a handful of classified documents with him.
Myrna would love to show Trian the door, but he’s been sent by North America’s reigning dragon lord for help negotiating a truce with a powerful rival to avert war. Myrna agrees to help, even though she’ll be stuck with Trian as a partner.
As the two work together, Myrna finds Trian to be surprisingly supportive—and still irresistibly attractive. Though her brain tells her not to forget his betrayal, her body feels differently. When they learn the enemy dragon lord is planning something no one could have imagined, Myrna has to learn who she can trust before she loses not only her heart, but her life.
I was recommended Never Deal With Dragons by a friend, and try it out on Netgalley, considering that I think dragon shifters are the sexiest stories to read from. So I was beyond excited when I received this from Carina Press through Netgalley. It started out with a humorous beginning, I couldn’t stop laughing, definitely drew me in completely with a nice touch of humor and originality.
The world changed with dragons were revealed to the world, and now live in somewhat of a harmony. Dragons are at the top of the food chain, and so humans can’t risk harming the dragons, because of the threat they pose. Myrna has known how to communicate with dragons using what is known as “dragonspeak”, and so she is a mediator for mediation firm for dragons and humans. During the middle of a mediation between a upset man and a dragon, a man interrupts, a man who she once lost her heart to but broke her heart and has yet to get over him. Trian is just as sexy and sensual as she remembers, but when he needs her help to mediate with a dragon lord which if successful could save the lives of innocents, she knows she doesn’t have a choice. As Trian and Myrna are forced to work together, Myrna can’t resist Trian, even though she is still hurt over him betraying her, she can’t deny her strong attraction to him, and his tenderness and protective side that only appeals to her. When she finds herself falling in love with him again, she doesn’t know if she will let her heart broken again or find the future she has always dreamed of.
Overall I found Never Deal With Dragons a delightful paranormal story that will delight and surprise you when you least expect it. Trian and Myrna were a exciting couple, I loved how they ended up dealing with each other. Trian is sexy and just plain HOT, and Myrna was a strong willed and endearing character whom makes you fall in love with her from the beginning. I just flew through this story, and before I knew it, it was over, and I can hardly wait for more from this author. This was such a fun paranormal tale of a world where the paranormal comes to life, and a love story that will capture your heart!!
