Dragonlord (Alpha Lords Book 5)

A dragon does not ask. He takes.

When Bridget set out on her own, she sought freedom from the strict rules of her pack. What she found was a beast more stern and demanding than any alpha wolf, a creature of legend intent on claiming her as his mate and breeding her to bring his kind back into the world. A dragon.

Gideon did not ask the little she-wolf if she wanted to belong to him. It was not up to her. The moment he awoke and smelled the scent of his mate, she became his. He tracked her down, punished her defiance, and then ravaged her until a thousand years of lust was fully slaked.

He did not mark her with his teeth like a wolf. He did not need to. Her body knows its master.

I loved this story. It is set in the world of Warlord, Overlord and Wolflord. In fact, Bridget is the widow of the former alpha of Dundalk. She decides that she wants to be treated as equal to the males of the pack. "...but I think I'm done with having males decide my fate." She leaves and goes to find somewhere for women to live free. A lot of this stems from her belief that her objections to be mated to the alpha were overlooked and she was forced to comply. She loved him, but she wanted to be able to make her own decisions as well. While travelling she meets Gideon who is a dragon. He starts the process for her to transform to a dragon without even telling her and he is not apologetic at all, in fact he is smug. There is conflict, but there is a HEA for our dragons. I will say that Delta loves to write about overbearing males. They have redeeming qualities, but they are definitely a**es. Saying that, I look forward to more stories about the dragons.

4.0 out of 5 stars First James book
Reviewed in the United States on February 20, 2020Verified Purchase
This was my first book by this author and it said it was a standalone in the same world as others so I just dove in. I do think I would have benefited reading the others for the beginning, because I was a bit lost and it started in the middle of a battle. However, I really enjoyed the story and the world building. It had some editing issues and some clunky dialogue trying to mimic a sort of Elizabethan form of speaking, but not really committing to it. I still loved the characters of Gideon& Bridget, and enjoyed their origin story. My favorite parts were about the dragons and how they became near extinct. The sex scenes were great and interesting without the same old same old. I look forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gideon - Dragon-shifter WOW

I read an advanced copy of this book and I just bought my own copy. WOW. Been waiting for this one and it's worth the wait. It contains everything Delta's books are known for: kick-ass heroine (Bridget), strong, noble hero (Gideon), wonderful interaction between them, adventure, romance, respect and great steamy sex. If you like the Wayward Mates and Wolf-Shifters of the future you'll love the DragonLords

4.0 out of 5 stars Darker side of romance
Reviewed in the United States on February 11, 2020
If you're looking for a light and airy paranormal romance, let me just stop you now because you're not going to find it here. Delta James' paranormal romance are on the darker side. Now, if that's what your're looking for, please, carry on. These books are not set in todays time, it is somewhere in the future after a planet changing event. Females in this future setting do not have much say in their lives. They are expected to follow orders and do as they're told and disciplined for disobeying. The discipline consists of being spanked, standing in a corner, etc. The sex scenes are plentiful and quite detailed.

This newest book by Delta James follows along with "Warlord", "Overlord" and "Wolflord". Characters from those books make brief appearances in this book, with the exception of Bridget, from "Wolflord", who is a main character in this book.

Bridget, looking to start a sanctuary for females that don't want to be claimed as mates, sneaks away to look for a lost city. Gideon, one of the last dragon shifters, awakens after a 1000 year sleep. When he catches Bridget's scent, the chase begins. When he finds Bridget, he immediately goes to her and stakes his claim. Bridget, not wanting to be mated again, sneaks out and runs. But Gideon is not going to allow his female to escape, she is his one true heart, something all male dragons yearned for. She was his to love and protect from now on, whether she wanted it or not.

If you are unable to get past my first paragraph of this review I do not recommend this book to you. Don't get this book and then leave a bad review because you didn't like the contents. For those that don't skip a beat with that first paragraph, give Delta James a try if you haven't already
