Iseabail the Dangerous is just that dangerous and a little on the crazy side. She is the general for her queen’s army. Izzy lives for the battle and the kill. Apparently, its freeing for her to take lives in the name of her queen. She has one weakness, a blue-haired dragon that irritates the crap out of her and insists on getting under her skin on a regular basis. Izzy has a blood debt to repay at some point, somebody summoned her home, and that blue-haired idiot has returned after ten years. Great, and life just keeps getting better.

Eibhear the Contemptible is known for his prowess on the battle field, or rather his and his squad’s ability to kill quickly on the battlefield. Now he has been sent on holiday to visit his family. He loves his family, but his brothers bully him and everyone else is just plain crazy. When he is sent to retrieve Izzy, he knows he is in trouble. He has not seen this irritating warrior girl since she was sixteen stealing his weapons and trying to touch his hair. When he sees her, he feels the forbidden attraction of ten years ago. You see, technically she is his niece because his brother adopted her. So that makes him her “weird, creepy uncle”. That does not stop the passion that ignites between them when they are not fighting, arguing, or Izzy isn't throwing something at his head. Now they are on a mission together and there will be fireworks. Literally.

How to Drive a Dragon Crazy is filled with violence, blood, and decapitation. You know all of the elements of a good romance. It was exciting and fun to read. My only complaint is there was too much going on. There was a lot of background stories to catch up with and one had to follow the different scenes and characters in the story. It was like a story, within a story, within a story, with a background story. Hot, literally.
