"Exciting yet humorous medieval romance"
King John orders his knight Dominic Dragon to wed
either the widow of a treasonous but now dead baron or
their daughter. Though he finds the Ayrdale estate quite
enticing, Dominic prefers to remain single, but knows he
has no options. However, Dominic is surprised to learn
that twin daughters exist. One rips his skin for breathing
while the other trembles in fear whenever he exhales.
Dominic rejects the mother and the termagant as he figures
the meek one would be more malleable and cause the least
However, Rose tricks Dominic into marrying her, the
thorny twin because she would do anything for her sibling
Starla, who prefers life in a nunnery. Besides wedding the
wild one, Dominic has other troubles to contend with would
destroy a lesser person with expectations of unreasonable
levels of loyalty by King John and problems with his
mistress and her uncle, but the worse problem for THE
DRAGON LORD is he now loves his tricky spouse.
THE DARGON LORD is an exciting yet humorous medieval
romance. The story line is four points taut due to
external machinations and six points amusement as Rose
always seems to best Dominic who changes from frustration
to winks at her actions. New York Times best-selling
author Connie Mason shows why she is so highly regarded by
fans and reviewers with this robust historical romance that
freshens up the overused John scenario with the shrew
taming the dragon.
