Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, "Gwenvael the Handsome, you are the best among us - the most loved of all dragons?" No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence, as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer.
So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call the Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying...woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman - one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor?
And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart?

Narration: Nope; Story: Love

I love, love, love Aiken's work, but sweet mother in hell, the narrator nearly kills this book. Her ability to narrate male voices is cringeworthy and consistently throws me out of the story. If I hadn't already read the series myself--I mentioned I love Aiken, right?--I would have asked for my money back because Jackson's narration would've made this a DNF. I prefer Morgan Hallett's narration of the series, but my love of the books compels me to own the audio version however I can get them. There is a line though. Hopefully, they don't pick anyone worse to narrate any of her other books.
