COUNT DOWN TO DRAGON BABY
Since I’m mated to the pack beta I’m expected to sit next to the mother-to-be.
“And it’s rumored to increase her fertility,” someone shouted from the crowd.
Betty squirmed, looking as uncomfortable as Angie felt. The beautiful wolf shifter’s gaze drifted to Angie’s belly, turning envious for a second before she glanced away. It wasn’t a secret that Betty and Ken desired their own litter of puppies.
“Well, then you better scoot your chair even closer.” Angie moved the table separating them out of the way and gestured to Betty.
An odd game began where Beth handed out slips of paper containing a list to all the guests. They emptied the contents of their purses. Angie peered over Betty’s shoulder. It was like bingo but instead of numbers people were ticking off objects. Taser, pepper spray, jerky, and claw clippers were some of the items listed. Angie snorted. She had been to baby showers before but they had all been for humans.
Beth approached with an armful of brightly wrapped presents. “While they play for prizes, you open presents. Pass them to Betty and she’ll take note of the gift and who it’s from.” The omega handed a small book and pen to the other woman.
“Yes, ma’am.” Angie winked. Throwing parties came naturally to Beth. She had even organized Betty and Ken’s wedding. An event New Port would never forget.
After opening a few gifts, Angie stared at the items. Kong dog toys as teething rings, scratch posts for developing claws, and fire-retardant blankets were the key items that caught her attention. She stroked her hand over her developing child. Would she have to find a pediatrician for the baby or a veterinarian? All this time, she had imagined a soft, pink baby in her arms. Now? A sharp-toothed, scaly terror chasing the cats within the castle. She scratched her chin. She had zero experience with either and found both images frightened her equally.
Cait Sidhe’s Review of Their Baby Dragon
If you are a fan of Katie MacAlister, you owe it to yourself to read Annie Nicholas. Their Baby Dragon is a riot. Filled with plenty of laugh out loud moments, it’s hard to go more than a couple of pages without snickering at the hijinks surrounding Eoin and Angie.
Dragons Angie and Eoin are expecting, but there’s just one problem. Actually, there’s a couple: their drafty castle just leaked on the nest, Angie just learned she’s to deliver an EGG and the baby isn’t letting her shift into her dragon shape to do so. Add in an Alpha werewolf stirring up trouble, and the mother-in-law descending on the castle along with Eoin’s siblings and the castle just got quite crowded!
These characters are so much fun. I enjoyed them all, but especially Eoin. The way Eoin takes revenge on the overstepping by a certain ex had me dying! Best scene in the book! His family was hilarious as well, knowing just exactly how to push Eoin’s buttons. There’s so much fun banter. There’s never a dull moment!
Underneath all of that, is a delightful adorable relationship between Eoin and Angel. They have an unusual relationship sure, but one that is filled with affection, devotion and a tad bit of cheekiness. There are lots of moments of chaos and worry, but there are plenty more emotional ones that kept this reader turning the pages in anticipation. It’s such a cute story and we undoubtedly get our happy ending, which I adore!
