Review: Dragos Takes a Holiday by Thea Harrison

The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong?

Dragos Cuelebre needs a vacation. So does Pia, his mate. When the First Family of the Wyr head to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it's no ordinary undertaking - and no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between hunting for ancient treasure buried beneath the waves and keeping track of their son, Liam—a.k.a. Peanut, whose Wyr abilities are manifesting far ahead of schedule—it’s a miracle that Pia and Dragos can get any time together.

They're determined to make the most of each moment, no matter who tries to get in their way.

And did we mention pirates?

Pia Cuelebre knows that her mate, Dragos, needs a break. He’s constantly working and not only is the man/dragon exhausted but he’s missing out on some great family time with Pia and Liam, their 3 month old. He’s also missing some huge milestones in Liam’s development so Pia does a tad bit of manipulating and gets Dragos to take a holiday.

The three of them, plus Hugh and Eva, all head down to the Caribbean to rest, relax and look for some sunken treasure. Unfortunately when they get there they find a group of men who are already looking for the same treasure and will stop at nothing to get the Cuelebre’s to stop looking and head back home.

This was just an adorable story. I loved reading about Pia and Dragos again. I love Dragos so much. He’s such a killer but he’s also got a soft gooey center when it comes to Pia and Liam. Reading about this hero again was pretty cool but imho just too short of a story. I wanted more! Of course I always love Pia and this story showed me more of her and her love for Dragos and her son. Very cool.

Liam who is only 3 months old, but is on the fast track when it comes to growing, looks like he’s about 6 or 7 months old. He also understands people better than they think. When he shifts and starts to try to fly like dear old dad he’s just the cutest stinking thing ever. I want a baby dragon just like him to wrap around my body when he naps! (I know, it’s never the same when thy grow up and get bigger than the house - whatever.)

This was a wonderful novella and a fab glimpse into the lives of a couple that I’ve loved from book one. Hopefully we’ll get more about Pia and Dragos – up close and personal – in the future.

Rating: 4 out of 5
