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?
For fans of DRAGON BOUND and LORD’S FALL, passion, playfulness, and adventure abound in this Elder Races novella. (29,500 words)
DRAGOS TAKES A HOLIDAY is part of a three-story series about Pia, Dragos, and Peanut. Each story stands alone, but fans might want to read all three: DRAGOS TAKES A HOLIDAY, PIA SAVES THE DAY, and PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL.
This is a slice-of-life adventure that comes after the events of Lord’s Fall. I wouldn’t recommend it for those who haven’t tried the series yet, but it’s great for those who already know and love Pia and Dragos.
Pia decides it’s time she and Dragos had a break away. After all the stress of the last year, she needs to recharge her batteries and so does he. Plus, they could use some time together as a family. She tricks Dragos into thinking it’s his idea they take a trip, and they head to Bermuda for a long weekend. Neither of them can just sit around, so they decide to hunt for lost treasure while there.
As they search for missing treasure and try to puzzle out the case of a missing ship from long ago, they spend time together relaxing and being a family. Until pirates decide they want the treasure for themselves. Then things get a little…messy.
I love Dragos and Pia. Dragon Bound is one of my most re-read books of all time. When I heard Thea Harrison was releasing a Dragos and Pia novella I was thrilled. I’m happy to report this was an excellent read.I didn’t think it was possible to love Dragos more than I already did, but he was awesome in this book. The page count is short but it was definitely worth the read.
