    Sexy and full of laugh out loud moments!

    Dragon Soul is book 3 in the Black Dragons series by Katie MacAlister but is my first book by this author. It was the synopsis that drew my attention to the story – it sounded like an interesting and fun premise and I’m happy to say that it exceeded my expectations and was a really delightful read. In this story, Sophea’s been hired (by a man claiming to be a relative of her late husband Jian) to escort an elderly woman on a cruise in Egypt, with a quick stop in Munich along the way. Her client’s habit of pilfering items en route keeps her on her toes, as does the fact that someone seems to have a decidedly not so friendly interest in the old lady as well. When Roman, a passenger on the plane, intersects himself in their lives when Sophea thwarts a would-be assassin (or so it appears) on their plane ride to Europe, it’s no surprise that when he shows up conveniently where they are in Munich she alternates between suspicion and gratitude for his seemingly timely protection. Her attraction to Roman surprises her too, having put the thought of finding a new man out of her head since losing her husband on the day of their wedding. With talk of dragons, a magic talisman, and a fiery connection to Roman, Sophea finds herself swept up in an exciting adventure, but one that could prove fatal in the end. This story had me laughing out loud from the start. Every interaction Sophea has with her client, Mrs. P, includes subtle and not so subtle references to Mrs. P’s kleptomania, her attraction to anything bright and shiny equal to her need to ‘borrow’ things from every location they are at. This made for lots of amusing scenes, interspersed with the action as it becomes apparent that Mrs. P has an item that people ( or, as Sophea soon discovers, not quite so ordinary humans) are willing to kill for. The plot moves swiftly from one locale to the next ( a trans-Atlantic flight, Munich, the city of Cairo and eventually a cruise ship on the Nile), introducing new characters along the way, some of whom have been featured in previous books in the series (which I definitely want to read as well). Until now, Sophea had no knowledge that her husband Jian was actually a Red Dragon and that by marrying him, she has inherited dragon abilities. I loved seeing all these revelations unfold, including why they were ultimately headed for the cruise in Egypt, that ends up being a lesson in Egyptian mythology as their cruise ship takes them into the Egyptian underworld. Lots of action, humorous situations mixed in with assassination attempts – and let’s not forget the romance too! Roman and Sophea are attracted to each other and share some steamy scenes together (despite Sophea’s initial hesitation to trust Roman’s intentions). It’s during their love scenes that some of her dragon characteristics come out too, which made for some extra fire (ha ha) between them. If you are looking for a paranormal romance with dragon shifters and humor and sexy scenes, a swift-moving plot and an exciting story, look no further than this. 5 stars.

    Excellent Series!

    I really enjoy Katie MacAlister's books! I've read a lot of them, and I always enjoy the kooky humor and the unique situations the characters find themselves in. I've read all the dragon books, and I think that helps because there are some of the previous characters that make appearances through out the whole series, and there are some storylines that continue through multiple books, so I would recommend reading from the beginning, or at least for Dragon Soul, it would be good to read the previous 2 books in this series because there is a continued storyline, but it isn't absolutely necessary since 2 different characters are the main focus of each of the books. Dragon Soul was lots fun and a great addition to the series! I liked that the characters traveled to a few different places; especially the "cruise", and that each of them were on a quest of sorts, and I enjoyed the hijinks of Mrs. P. All of the characters are weird and kooky, and it is lots of fun reading about them. I'm never bored because there is always something interesting going on. Sophea and Rowan are the focus couple of Dragon Soul, and both are in for lots of changes in their lives. Sophea is escorting Mrs.P to a cruise taking off in Egypt from the U.S., but little does she knows that there is more to Mrs. P then she thinks, and there are also things she doesn't know about herself, and along the way, Sophea meets Rowan, who ends up helping out with some tough situations. Sophea finds Rowan attractive, but she is also weary of his intentions. Rowan is an alchemist, and he is on a quest to find a magical ring before it can fall into the hands of an evil demon lord. Rowan is on the outs with the dragons because some dragons were killed when he was trying to break the magic on an object, so he is obligated to help the dragons or he will lose his life. Rowan believes Mrs. P has the ring, and that Sophea has nefarious reason for being with Mrs. P, but as he gets to know Sophea, he begins to question how he feels towards Sophea. I enjoyed how Sophea and Rowan's relationship unfolds; they are really sweet with each other, and I found the changes they go through interesting. There are fun scenes through out the whole book, and I thought the battle scenes were fun; those demons are bad fighters! I also love the ending! It was lots of fun, and I like how all the characters are brought together! I will definitely read more books by Katie MacAlister; especially about her dragons and vampires!

    Absolutely entertaining

    DRAGON SOUL is a laugh out loud, absolutely entertaining madcap blend of adventure, passion and humor with a scatterbrained heroine, an intense hero, a kleptomaniac octogenarian and a trip through the Underworld, not at all what I expected but just what I needed. Sophea Long has been hired to escort her elderly charge to Egypt to join a cruise down the Nile. While her charge turns out to be a handful with a fascination for anything shiny, Sophea finds herself caught up in trying to protect her from strange men bearing even stranger gifts and fascinated by the gorgeous man who seems to be around to help her out at just the right time, every time. Rowan Dakar is on a mission to save the world and can't afford to be distracted by his attraction to a beautiful woman, especially one pretending to be someone else and who may be a threat to his mission. Uneasy allies in a quest to protect Sophea's charge, Sophea and Rowan find themselves unable to stay away from each other, even when their passion literally sets them aflame. The characters' antics are hilarious, verging on the ridiculous. Sophea has no filter and says anything that comes to mind and Mrs. P., her charge will take anything that's not nailed down. Throw in demigods, dragons and demons battling over a magical item and a love connection in the midst of this and you have a really enjoyable story. This is my first read in this series and I expected the usual paranormal romance when I picked this up but while it has everything I love in PNR, Ms. MacAlister's humorous slant on the story makes this such a fun story and I loved it. Caveat: Do not read in public, to avoid uncontrollable laughter and potential embarrassment! Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
