Blurb: War makes strange bedfellows.
I, Gaius Domitus, one-eyed rebel dragon king of the Provinces, know that better than most, since I have to fight off half my ungrateful family on a regular basis to keep law and order here in my lands. But I never expected to have to consort with a barbarian human woman.
Kachka is beautiful, if you like them fierce–and of course I do. But she keeps complaining about how spoiled and decadent I am, and how a feared Daughter of the Steppes has no time for foolish dragons. I think she likes my eye patch, though. It is quite dashing. With death always at our tails, we take our passion like we take our allies. As they say, love the barbarian you’re with…
Review: G.A. Aiken, who also writes as Shelly Laurenston, has suck a knack for writing these crazy, ridiculous and insanely hilarious characters that, no matter how awful they may seem, you can’t help but love them. I never laugh so much as when I read one of her books. Feel the Burn is no exception.
Kachka is an absolute riot. The female dominated culture she comes from, just adds yet another element to her insane personality in the way she and her companions, especially Zoya, view and treat men. Seriously loved Zoya and a couple of the other new additions to the series.
After reading this one, and getting the reminder of how much I do love these books, I’m adding these to my “must purchase upon release” list.
