A Woman on a Mission
Grace Clark has always done things safe. She’s never colored outside of the law, but she has a book due and has found the perfect spot to break through her writer’s block. Or so she thinks. Right up until Arian suddenly appears and tries to force her away from the mountain. Unaware of the war she just stumbled into, Grace doesn’t just discover the perfect place to write, she finds Arian—the most gorgeous, enticing, mysterious man she’s ever met.

A King with a Purpose
Arian is a Dragon King who has slept away centuries in his cave. Recently woken, he’s about to leave his mountain to join his brethren in a war when he’s alerted that someone has crossed onto Dreagan. He’s ready to fight . . . until he sees the woman. She’s innocent and mortal—and she sets his blood aflame. He recognizes the danger approaching her just as the dragon within him demands he claim her for his own…

My review:

Dragon King is story number 6.5 in author Donna Grant’s Dark Kings series and novella number 12 in the 2015 1,001 Dark Nights Series. I’m a huge Donna Grant fan and an equally huge 1,001 Dark Nights fan. Add them together and what do you get? Magic, I tell you. I adored this story and want a dragon of my own!

Hibernating Dragon King Arian and romance author Grace and up together in a most unlikely chance meeting. Grace has no idea just what she’s stumbled upon and Arian is transfixed by Grace’s personality and beauty. Both equally wary and curious of one another, they form a bond and attraction that I can only describe as delicious.

I loved Arian and the story of how this mountain became his bed of sorts. I loved how curious he was about Grace and how enamored and taken he was with her and her quirky nature. I also loved how kind and caring he was with her. He melted my heart with his tenderness and caring (even though he played a bit on her weakness to get her to stay with him…I know, I know, but I can totally forgive him for that!). I also loved Grace. She is real and relatable with a great personality and a tenacious attitude when it came to her writing. She also broke m heart when we learned of her past love life.

Ms. Grant wrote one of my favorite paragraphs in any book, and it came when Grace and Arian became intimate. She wrote that Grace had been writing passion wrong…because it had been so long since she had experienced true passion and she forgot what it actually felt like. That one paragraph had me hoping like a feind these two would somehow make things work.

Of course that would involve the little obstacle of Arian being a dragon. Luckily, Grace being as amazing as she is, it wouldn’t be the biggest problem they had to overcome. Now, I won’t give anything away but I will tell you that Ms. Grant totally nailed the ending and it was movie worthy!

Even if you’ve never even thought of picking up a book with dragons in it, I urge you to give this series a try. It is one of the best paranormals out there and Ms. Grant continues to be an auto-buy author for me! Thank you Ms. Grant and thank you 1,001 Dark Nights for a fantastic read!
