This short story is set in the DRAGONS OF PREOR world and does not stand alone. It should be read after ZADRI and is a little bite of family life for those who fell in love with the Preor dragons.
Essentially it's the story of Taulan, the War Master, and his mate Lana who is about to drop their twins! Imagine you are about to give birth to twin hybrids (who might have wings!) and not allowed any drugs because no one quite knows how your body will react. Lana is to put it mildly, peeved, she hurts, she wants to feel in control and yet everyone is getting in her way. It's her body that's been hijacked and her thoughts and reactions are hilarious to read. Anyone whose given birth will recognise her feelings and this girl is not one to keep her mouth shut!
Yet there's something else in play that is so, well actually, I'm not sure if it's sweet or just plain wonderful so you might have to decide for yourself. Are Lana's efforts worth it all? Well of course with this author you know it's going to be a fabulous ending but her twist left me smiling. Yes, this is great for the fans but it's also a pretty good example of the strong and funny characters this author keeps coming up with. Fast, irreverent and romantic what more could I ask?
