The Dragon who loved me - G A Aiken

I was raised for battle. And as the first daughter of a warrior family, I’ve earned my reputation the hard way. Yet now I fight alongside uncivilized male Northland dragons who think a female is only good for breeding and waiting back home in the cave. But it’s the foolish and foolhardy who would try to stop me, Rhona the Fearless, from doing what I do best—destroying the enemies of my kind.
So the smartest thing wily barbarian Vigholf the Abhorrent can do for me is stay out of my way as we risk all on a deadly mission in enemy territory. I don’t care if he’s fascinated by me, even though he is as attractive as he is resourceful. He’s having far too much fun putting me in difficult situations and testing my sense of duty to the limit. And I’m going to enjoy challenging his insufferable confidence, outwitting his schemes, and making him surrender in the wildest ways…

Como calculava, com os dias de stress que atravesso, este foi o primeiro dos três livros que ando a ler que acabei, e foi o que esperava da autora: não uma obra prima, mas um interlúdio divertido, com homens, mulheres, dragões e dragonesas (?) impossíveis de aturar... e hilariantes nos seus comportamentos irracionais, irascíveis, impulsivos, imparáveis. Um disparate. 
Sempre divertida e damned fierce, esta autora, seja como Shelly Laurenston ou G A Aiken.
