Lady Guinevere dreams of frolicking naked with twin warriors. She knows these dreams cannot come true, and she must choose only one warrior to wed. She selects the stoic elder brother, bidding a regret-filled farewell to her other laughing lord.

Except her wedding night isn't the end of their relationship, but a new beginning. The brothers share everything, and Guinevere is about to live out her deepest, darkest fantasies. Will she be woman enough to tame her two wild dragon lords?

Cynthia Sax has another winner on her hands with Her Dragon Lords. I’m a fan and was expecting her usual wit, short sharp prose, and gift for world building that effortlessly takes me out of my present and into her fantasy. She didn’t disappoint me.

The only problem is that Her Dragon Lords is too dang short. It’s a good story but it would have been great if there had been more time to explore the male leads and their back-story. These are truly unique fellows and I wanted more of their world.

There’s also some head-hopping but it was easy to figure out what was what in this intriguing world. Did I use the word imaginative already? Ms. Sax has created a fascinating world and I loved every minute I spent in it. The book starts with an inventive and hot dream sequence that grabbed my attention, and never let go. The sense of belonging and contentment the heroine eventually experiences was sigh-inducing and terrific.

Despite the book’s short length, the villian wasn’t one-dimensional and was redeemable. Mindless evil’s easy to write. Evil with layers isn’t, and I tip my hat to Ms. Sax.
