Steamin' Hot New Cover: The Dragon Who Loved Me by G.A. Aiken

I heart G.A. Aiken's (Shelly Laurenston) Dragon Kin series. Her books are absolutely hilarious without being too cheesy. However, Aiken/Laurenston's book covers tend to be a little underwhelming and I'm afraid that the cover for The Dragon Who Loved Me falls into that category. I appreciate a nice sculpted back, but the dude's muscles just seem weird to me. All I see is some kind of creature staring at me. Ick!
                                                                                                                                             Bad cover or not, I want this book like NOW. Unfortunately, we have to wait until September 6th. BOO!

                                                                                                                                              I was raised for battle. And as the first daughter of a warrior family, I’ve earned my reputation the hard way. Yet now I fight alongside uncivilized male Northland dragons who think a female is only good for breeding and waiting back home in the cave. But it’s the foolish and foolhardy who would try to stop me, Rhona the Fearless, from doing what I do best—destroying the enemies of my kind.

So the smartest thing wily barbarian Vigholf the Abhorrent can do for me is stay out of my way as we risk all on a deadly mission in enemy territory. I don’t care if he’s fascinated by me, even though he is as attractive as he is resourceful. He’s having far too much fun putting me in difficult situations and testing my sense of duty to the limit. And I’m going to enjoy challenging his insufferable confidence, outwitting his schemes, and making him surrender in the wildest ways…


  1. Oh my, those are some muscles. And the more I stare at them, the more I'm inclined to agree with your creature theory. What is that thing?

    I've never heard of this author. Can you believe that? And she's a NY Times Bestsellar too! Thanks for the heads up!

  2. It looks like some sort of alien with pincers. I can't believe you haven't heard of G.A. Aiken/Shelly Laurenston! You have to try her books out soon! She has plenty to choose from.

  3. I've read Shelly Laurenston's Mangus Pack and LOVED it so I've been eying this series for a while now!!=)

  4. Make sure to pick up her Pride series too! I love all her books.
