Blog Tour!!! I Like Big Dragons And I Cannot Lie-- Lani Lynn Vale!!!

Title: I Like Big Dragons and I Cannot Lie Series: The Dragon Series #1 
Author: Lani Lynn Vale 
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Keifer Vassago, The Prince of Dragons, has enough on his plate without adding a brunette with a bad attitude to the mix Fate has a way of screwing all his plans, though, whether he wants them screwed or not. One second he’s fetching his brother from yet another situation that could possibly compromise the Vassago name, and the next that brunette is grabbing his assets. Blythe isn’t after anyone’s assets, though. She’s a good girl. All she wants is to graduate from nursing school, get a job, and move out of her hell hole apartment. What she does not have time to deal with is a sexy bearded man that accuses her of grabbing his junk. She tries to forget about the encounter, but fate’s a cruel bitch. One second she’s a normal college student barely living paycheck to paycheck, and the next she’s setting her panties on fire with powers from an ancient immortal dragon. To add insult to injury, she’s hearing voices, and none of them are figments of her imagination. Blythe’s life is turned upside down, and Keifer forces her to adapt even though she doesn’t want to. She likes her life just the way it is. Not to mention she wants nothing to do with that arrogant asshole. She doesn’t care that he rides a dragon. She also could care less about his stupid beard, and his sexy eyes. Yeah, who was she kidding? She wasn’t convincing anybody.


Okay, so for quite a while, I had seen fellow readers and friends talk all about LLV's books, and how amazing they are- and I was always a bit curious. But, I could never seem to find the time to fit it into my blog schedule to start one of her many series- just to see what all of the fuss was about. Then I saw this blurb- and I made the freaking time. I finally know what the fuss is about- and it is about A LOT. This woman can write. And she does it well- very well. 
Keifer and Blythe are definitely some of my new favorites, whether it be the PNR aspect or what, I'm not sure- but I was drawn into their story from the very beginning. When I first read the synopsis, I was thinking Keifer was a dragon shifter- but no, he actually RIDES the freaking dragon!! How damn cool is that??? And I must say, his dragon is hilariously amazing as well. He is just as big and important a character as Keifer is, and one that I cannot imagine not having in the story. He is the perfect counterpart to Keifer's ways- he can put the man into his place like no other. Well, no other than Blythe it seems. 
That woman is her own little brand of magic, even if she technically isn't born with any. She holds more sway over the way of Keifer's world than one could have ever imagined. Being his true mate, it was to be expected, but to see this large and in charge man brought to his knees by this little woman- breathtaking.
There is certainly an underlying element of good vs. evil to the story, and it plays out incredibly. The battle scenes are spectacularly written, and LLV does a great job giving you the illusion of actually being in the scene yourself.
Although I haven't read any of her other books YET (trust me, I am starting VERY SOON), if they are even a tenth as good as this one is- I will be hooked on this woman, and immediately devour everything that I can get my hands on by her. I cannot wait to get the next book in this series, because I am already addicted to it. These dragon riders are men that you definitely do NOT want to miss out on, so if you were hesitating at all on getting this book- DON'T!! You will not be disappointed, I can assure you. You are gonna love Keifer and Blythe!!

I woke up to my lower half on fire.
At first, I thought it was just an aftereffect of my dreams, but when I finally peeled my eyes open, I could smell smoke.
When I opened my lids and looked down, it was to literally find my panties on fire.

I screamed and rolled; rolling so far in the bed that I hit the floor and kept going.

By the time the fire was finally out, my panties were burned to ash. However, my skin was perfectly fine. In fact, the hairs that I’d planned on having waxed later in the week were gone.
It’d given me a fire waxing…minus the wax.

“What the fuck?” I yelled, staring down at my now hair-free mound.

My eyes widened and I looked around. Was someone in the room with me?
I started reaching for the lamp but couldn’t find it. There was a pile of things beside the bed that I’d knocked over in my haste to get up. I could only assume that the lamp was one of those things.
“Light, light, light,” I chanted, shifting through the things on the floor.
My candles that I had interspersed around the room all lit at once, and I screamed.
“What the hell is going on?” I shrieked.
Macy started hammering on the wall, or her boyfriend. Whatever. Fuck her.
I narrowed my eyes at the wall.
That stupid heifer! I’m allowed to scream if I want to. She fucks day and night, and she’s going to bang on my wall to get meto quiet down?
Master Farrow has always had excellent stamina with the ladies.
I froze, turning around and scanning the room.
“Who’s there?” I asked nervously.
A deep, rumbly laugh filled my head and my eyes widened.
“Holy mother of God, get out of my head!” I yelled.
The voice in my head continued to chuckle. Oh, this is almost as good as when Prince Keifer came into his powers. He didn’t shriek like you do, though.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
