Dragos Cuelebre, Lord of the Wyr, needs to throw a party without maiming anyone. That isn't exactly as easy as it might sound.

After the destructive events of the last eighteen months, the Elder Races are heading to Washington D.C. to foster peace with humankind. Not known for his diplomacy skills, Dragos must rely on his mate Pia to help navigate a battlefield of words and polite smiles rather than claws. With Dragos's mating instinct riding close to the surface, his temper is more volatile than ever and the threat of violence hovers in the air.

Then the human spouse of a prominent politician winds up murdered and Dragos and Pia must race against time to hunt down those behind it before they are held responsible for the crime.

The latest novella in the Elder Races holds passion, peril, political intrigue, and revelations that will change Dragos and Pia's lives forever.

DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON is the first part of a three-story series about Dragos, Pia, and their son Liam. Each story stands alone, but fans might want to read all three in order as they will be released: DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON, PIA DOES HOLLYWOOD, and LIAM TAKES MANHATTAN.

Dragos Cuelebre is a Dragon Wyr and leader of his demense. Dragos along with his wife and mate Pia travel to Washington to foster better relations with other demense leaders and humans. Dragos and Pia consider having another child together which adds to the mating frenzy Dragos already feels. Dragos discovers a disturbing trend among some of the human leaders wearing scent masking cologne. He's puzzled as to why? While hosting a dinner for important leaders at their home, Pia stumbles upon a dead man which could spell disaster for everyone. Who is the killer? Why the scent masking? Will Pia get pregnant? Your answers await you in Dragos Goes to Washington. Dragos and Pia are my favorite characters in this series and for good reason. They're smokin' hot on all levels. The story and characters are complex, honest, raw, compelling, and gritty too. I look forward to my next adventure in this series.

I love reuniting with Pia and Dragos. They are the power couple of the Elder Race series and this was a great look into their normal, everyday lives. Well, as normal and everyday as their lives can be. After the trauma of Pia’s novella and the shift from Dragos and Pia to Liam in the previous short story, it was nice to return to Pia and Dragos and the bond that ties them together. One of my biggest problems with the previous set of novellas was how fast Liam was aging. In this story however, the focus is off Liam and on to new problems that Dragos and Pia need to face as a couple. Excellent novella! It makes me want to reread the whole series again! And loved the brief appearance from Tricks and Tiago! https://somewherelostinbooks.wordpress.com/2015/10/31/dragos-goes-to-washington/

Dragos is the leader of the Wyr Race, and due to his being the only dragon for centuries, he wields an enormous amount of power and influence. There are many that don't like it, but there it is. Due to the events taking place in the overall story arc of the series, I think the author makes a wise choice in spotlighting Dragos to help set up a new story arc. We get both a sneak peek in on the Cuelebre's (who continue to remain a personal favorite) and an over view of where the series is heading next. This was a fun story and I gave it 3 stars.

~ 3 Dragos Stars ~ Dragos Goes to Washington a novella #8.5 in the Elder Races series by Thea Harriosn. We are treated to a satisfying read full of political intrigue and revelations that will surprise. This was an enjoyable read giving us a murder mystery in Washington DC which is intriguing, but it does resolve quickly. The story in itself is fan-fic for those that have come to love Dragos, Pia, and The Peanut. We don’t get a cliffhanger per say, but we are left with a few levels of political issues unrelieved, which will be continued in the next to novellas Pia Does Hollywood and Liam Takes Manhattan. As for our characters I loved seeing them again. They are always fun together with some great banter. The emotional buildup was kinda flat. No real sizzle for me. Their sensual scenes were just so so this time around. We don’t get to see The Peanut except for a brief moment in the beginning. As novella’s go Dragos Goes to Washington was an ok read. Fans will enjoy returning to one of the main couples and seeing some of our past characters make an appearance.

Fans of the series should rush to whatever online bookstore they use and buy it now! “How exactly does one break the news to her husband that she's standing in a closet with the dead body of one of their dinner guests?” DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON by Thea Harrison is 129 pages of Elder Races' awesomeness. It's first novella in a trilogy within the series (8.5, 8.6 and 8.7). It combines passion, paranormal politics and unique, primarily dragon family dynamics, into a wonderfully entertaining tale. This tale grabbed my attention from the very first and didn't let go until the wondrous last sentence. Along the way, I laughed, swooned, found myself on the edge of my seat and shed a few tender tears. You should know that I'm a huge fan of the series. I love these short stories in the series as they provide yummy tidbits about the characters, in this case, Dragos and his mate, Pia. It just so happens that Dragos, Pia and Liam, their adorable son, are my favorite characters in the series and hold a special place in my heart. Dragos' and Pia's smoking chemistry and charisma absolutely scintillates these pages. They are so perfect together that I am amazed, dazed and happy just remembering how they interact. Dragos is an old, tough dragon, but his connection with Pia is distinctly fresh, raw, doting and tenderhearted. She has him wrapped around her little finger and I love every minute. Their mutual love, care and concern for each other is heartbreakingly beautiful to behold. Supporting characters in this story include many previous heroes and heroines from former tales in this series, including Niniane, or "Tricks," and Tiago, her mate. I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with them and many more. The Elder Races' world that Thea has created continues to amaze me with her creativity and shows no signs of getting old. Her word and world building are both utterly incredible. I only wish Thea could write as fast as I inhale her books! I am not going to post a snynopsis nor a spoiler besides saying that there is some very exciting news disclosed within this story that will leave fans happy dancing and delightfully anticipating events to come! To fully appreciate this installment, I believe that the reader should have some prior knowledge of the Elder Races world and have, at the very least, read the first book in the series which featured Dragos and Pia and introduced the Elder Races (DRAGON BOUND). That should not be a hardship since every book in this series has been a treat. My full review is posted at Reading Between The Wines Book Club. Please check it out there. 5 Wine Glasses!

DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON is the latest installment in Thea Harrison’s adult Elder Races paranormal, romance series, and the first in her three-story novella series focusing on Dragos, Pia and Liam Cuelebre. I would recommend reading this particular novella series in order although some background about the original series is beneficial for overall enjoyment Told from third person perspective (Pia) DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON follows the Wyr royal couple as they embark on a week-long engagement to Washington DC as part of a peace keeping assembly involving the Elder Races and humankind. But all does not go according to plan, when the vice-president’s husband is murdered and all clues point to a supernatural murder. Meanwhile, the mating frenzy takes over for Pia and Dragos, and our leading couple find themselves taking every available opportunity to try and make a baby. DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON has a little bit of everything-politics, discrimination, murder, betrayal and plenty of $ex as Dragos and Pia enter into the mating frenzy. The world building continues to focus on the tepid relationship between the supernatural races and humans; the race to the finish finds our leading lady in a precarious situation. The murder mystery is solved rather quickly without any fanfare or time invested into a lengthy investigation. Thea Harrison has written a story for the fans of her Elder Races. We get a quick look at some of the previous storyline couples-by way of mention or presence-as well as the continued animosity between species and mankind. DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON is an enjoyable novella-a quick read that follows the Wyr first family, and their attempts to maintain peace in a volatile situation.

Dragos Goes to Washington by Thea Harrison is book 8.5 of her fantastic Elder Races series. This is a novella that starts off a new trilogy with two more books coming in Novemb er and December. I love this series, and always look forward to whatever Thea gives us with the Elder Races. In Dragos Goes to Washington, the story picks up after the last full length book, which had many deaths for the Nightkind. Because of this, all the Wyr are attending a meeting in Washington with humankind to discuss peace. Before they leave for Washington, Dragos and Pia (we never have enough of them together) make a rash decision to try for another child, since Liam is growing up too fast. The sex scenes between these two are always off the wall, especially this drives Dragos mating urges close to the top. Heaven forbid anyone comes close to Pia or tries to offer help. LOL Time to run from the fire of the dragon. Before they leave, Pia begins to get sick, constantly throwing up often, and she hides this from Dragos, knowing how important this meeting is. At the party, the tension is high, as they meet the humankind President and Vice President. Dragos senses the Vice President and other high ranking members are cloaking their scent, which is a danger signal to him. Before the night is out, a high ranking official is murdered, and all eyes are on the Wyr, as the guilty party. Dragos and Pia work together to find the real culprits, who are behind this new attempt to destroy the peaceful relationships of the Wyr and Humankind. To tell too much more would be spoilers. I loved being able to see many of our favorites again. This was a sexy, fun storyline, with action and mystery. There will also be more revelations that will lead to the next two books in this novella trilogy. I cannot wait for the next one, Pia Goes to Hollywood.
