Review: What a Dragon Should Know by G.A. Aiken

Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, 'Gwenvael the Handsome, you are the best among us - the most loved of all dragons?' No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer. So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call The Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying...woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman - one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor? And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart?

This is a witty tale of Beauty and The Beast. In this case Beauty and The Beast are completely different that whatever you were just thinking. Gwenvael is known for his looks, his charm, and his way with women. He knows how to wield all of his skills to get what he wants. He wants to be pleasured by women. He is not terribly discrete and never hides his intentions. His love of his sister in law Annwyl takes him into the Northlands where he will have to use skills he has never used before. The traits that he has relied on his whole life are about to fail him.

Dagmar is appalled by the Dragon that has come to her home, per her request, when he rolls over and laughs at her. Being the expert strategist that she is she knows how to exploit this to her advantage to get what she wants, that is after all her goal anyways. She’ll even enjoy teaching the handsome a lesson or eight. She has earned her position in in life. She’s a schemer and plotter. The Beast of Reinholdt knows exactly what she is doing before she even does it.

Gwenvael and Dagmar were a complete pleasure to read. Both are witty and quick with the quips. They have a love for challenges and a need to overcome them. These personality traits when paired together in this couple made What a Dragon Should Know difficult to put down. I’m excited about the next book. Readers will get to read more about the mysterious Lightning Dragons. They are still a shadowy foe that readers have seen little of. I just love dark and enigmatic. The added humor is a very nice bonus.
