Dancing With Dragons (DRACIM #2) by Lorenda Christensen
Carol Jenski knows anything, it's fashion—and it's not in fashion to consort with dragons, even though they've coexisted with humans since World War III. Still, she would never have agreed to take part in a plot against them. Now a dragon lord has called for her head, her boyfriend is MIA and she's been abandoned in a foreign country.
Only reporter Daniel Wallent is on Carol's side...sort of. He offers his assistance if she helps him investigate his latest story. He'll need Carol's language skills to infiltrate in the organization run by one of the most dangerous and secretive dragons in the world.
Escaping one sociopathic dragon's claws only to walk into another's is an insane risk—and so is falling for Daniel. Posing as his blushing—and very affectionate—new bride as cover soon leads to an all-too-real attraction. But fighting off dragons and her desire for Daniel may be more of a challenge than Carol can handle.
Dancing With Dragons is book two in the DRACIM series. Never Deal With Dragons is book one and you can find my review here:
I liked book one and book two is just as good. This time we are with Carol Jenski right after the end of book one. Myrna and Trian from book one have small parts but Carol and Daniel are the main characters in Dancing With Dragons.
Carol is a great character. She says what she thinks and is not always easy to get along with. She has also had very bad taste in men. She is in the hospital recovering from a dragon attack when the book opens. It turns out she has been set up and has to go on the run.
Daniel Wallent is the one who offers to help. He is a good guy even though you have to wonder at first. Even though he is using Carol he is attracted and the attraction is mutual. While Carol sometimes doubts him I never did. He is a truly stand up guy.
The problem: DRAGONS and not just one. Someone wants to wipe them out and put the blame on Carol. Another dragon is trying to take over China and Carol stands in the way. All this goes together to make a great plot that has just the right amount of danger mixed with romance.
Dancing With Dragons is published by Carina Press. Like all Carina Press books this is not a long read. You can curl up for an afternoon and have a great time reading Dancing With Dragons.
I received an ARC of Dancing With Dragons from Netgalley.
