A prank gone wrong throws three unlikely partners together: A demon. A dragon. And an egg.
I Dream of Dragons I
In the ordinary world, forces are at work which keep the balance of the universe in order. Enter Eve Sinclair, a higher demon with a mission--to sway those souls on the brink of Decision, to push them toward heaven or toward hell, as they are meant to go.
After a prank played by her brothers, Eve finds herself holding the proverbial bag, accused of stealing a precious dragon egg. Worse, it's a royal egg, as she learns from Ranton, the furious commander of the dragon legion.
Not a creature to have on one's bad side, Ranton shifts between his human and dragon forms, keeping Eve off-balance and off her game. Normally a master at manipulating males, Eve finds that Ranton is more than a match for her...as is his brother, the new dragon king. In their arms, she's mere putty.
And soon they're not only molding her desires, but her heart.
Ms Harte has a way with words that transports the reader straight into the story. I really liked the playful Demon brothers and even Eve’s father was written as a character that felt more than one dimensional. I think that's what really delighted me as it wasn't just an endless excuse for erotic scenes but a humorous story that kept the punches coming. Oh, and it's very unusual as not only does the fearsome General Ranton fall hard for Eve but also his brother Jentaron, who for much of story is an egg! Yep, expect the unexpected in this book.
Eve is a Demon so maybe it's not such a departure for her to involve herself in a little ménage. Ranton is loud and quite brash so I'm sure some readers will find him a little too pushy but he is offset by the more loving Jentaron. I'd personally have liked a little more world building but as a short story The Dragons' Demon had great pace and an interesting plot. Lots of steam but the ménage (which isn't really my thing) felt a little odd to me, but it's fantasy so anything goes!
