Dragon on Top (Dragon Kin 0.4) by G.A. Aiken

Try a little dragon tenderness.

I am Glheanna the Decimator. I am a warrior. A soldier. I know no fear. No pain. No mercy. I do, however, know acute embarrassment! How could I not after getting dumped by a bastard dragon in front of my own troops? So I tuck tail and return to my cave, drowning my sorrows in ale—as is my family’s way. But instead of leaving me to my misery, I’ve been summoned to the Dragon Queen’s court.

As if my life wasn’t pathetic enough, Her Majesty now has me escorting the highborn Bram the Merciful through dangerous territories—not exactly the best use of my military training. And just so he can negotiate with enemy dragons instead of battling them? Honestly, what has my world come to? Then again…Bram is quite easy on the eyes. And the perfect distraction for what ails me. Perhaps I’m looking at all this the wrong way. Maybe there is a place for a little “mercy” in my life…

My review:
I adore Glheanna. She is a strong female succeeding in a male dominated field. As a warrior she is an unqualified success as a woman well she has suffered a recent slump. Maybe she was just looking for love in the wrong place. Bram the Merciful is a minor royal and a braniac. He has an important job in making treaties to keep the kingdom safe and it’s warriors underutilized. He has also had a crush on Glheanna for years. Now she is tasked with keeping him safe while he travels to make a treaty that will make the Dragon Queen the strongest monarch in centuries. Will traveling together bring them closer? Only time will tell. This story will make you laugh and get you thinking. I love this world and want more, more, and more.
