[quote-tastic] 4 stars-- Dragon Soul (Dragon Falls #3) by Katie MacAlister

Katie MacAlister is something...special. I enjoy her humor. The little bit of silly and ridiculous mixed into the action and romance. Her characters just make me laugh.

Nipple nubs, indeed! This quote gave me a chuckle.

"Where was I?"

"About to give me a chance to play with your nubs," she said, pushing back on his shoulders until he released her.

"No," he said, turning his attention to her skirt. How did it attach? And more important, how did he take it off her?

"Excuse me? Did you just tell me no? I assume your mind is muddled by the trauma of being zapped into dragoness, and that what you really meant to say was 'Yes, Sophea, I will gladly let you reciprocate the wonderful feelings you've been experiencing, for I, too, am looking forward to having my nipples molested.' That is what you meant to say, right?"

"No," he repeated, and having discovered the hooks and eyes that closed the skirt, undid them until the skirt was loose. He stood up, pulling her up with him, causing the skirt to slide down her hips to the floor with a leathery woosh. "Another time you may work your lusts upon my nipple nubs, but right now, I must do this."

"That's just selfish, hogging all the nipple-based pleasure-giving fun--" Sophea started to protest, but he stopped her by kissing her soundly.


Oh I love MacAlister's dragons. Outrageous, cheeky, and charming.
The Gist: Sophea's been hired to escort an elderly lady to Egypt where she's catching a cruise. Problem is...said elderly lady is a klepto, maybe on the run from demons and an all around handful. Sophea's formerly sane life has taken a nose dive into crazytown complete with an oh so lickable stranger named Rowan who quite possibly has nefarious plans where her old lady is concerned. Ah!
These guys were fun. As with all of MacAlister's dragons they're a little crazy, a bit silly. A little unpredictable. But it makes them lovable. And I did enjoy these two. Sophea's a bit naive but she's a good heart and once she takes on a task she's going to put her whole heart in it. She's loyal and puts it all out there.

And Rowan. We'll he's been hiding from the dragons for decades-- with good reason. And damn all they've called in a debt. I liked Rowan. He's a good guy even if exasperated by the things happening to him. He's the type that come through when you need him to and tries to do the right thing.

I thought they were fun together. Both are a bit out of their element in the dragon/paranormal world and have that omg this can NOT be my life! thing happening to them which was kind of hilarious as they dealt with pervy goddesses, demons, suspicious dragons, demon dogs and talking heads. They had a nice dynamic as they got all meshed together during their travels and had a little bit of steam, too. Sometimes even flames!

The mystery/drama was entertaining, too. A cruise into the underworld! And making sure a little old lady gets to her beau who lives there. All kinds of insane challenges they had to pass to get there, dangers and suspicions and figuring out life as new-found dragons. It was definitely an adventure! And I didn't figure everything out by the end either which I appreciated.

All in all, Dragon Soul was a silly over-the-top dragon filled adventure. A roaring good time. Exactly what I expect from MacAlister.
Sophea Long knows that escorting her octogenarian client to Europe will be an adventure. Mrs. P has a habit of stealing anything shiny, and the former "hoochikoo dancer" is a lot faster than she looks. But Sophea hadn't counted on Mrs. P leading her right into the arms of a smoldering, dark-haired stranger who kisses like a dream. If only he'd give up all this nonsense about Sophea being some kind of dragon...

There's a reason Rowan Dakar is known as the Dragon Breaker. The last thing he needs is to fall for a woman who literally sets him aflame every time they kiss. After all, he has a mission-one that will finally free him of dragonkin for good. He can't afford to be distracted by the funniest, most desirable woman he's ever set eyes on. But no prophecy in the world can ever stop true love...
