The Stubborn Lord

By Michelle M. Pillow

Dragon Lords Series Book #6

The original Dragon Lords series by NYT Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow.

Kendall Haven’s life turns upside down when she’s taken from her fueling dock home by thugs. Her gambler father used her to cover his losses. Treated like cargo, she’s sold to the highest bidder–an alien bride procurement agency.

Landing on a primitive planet on the far edge of the universe, she has no intention of fulfilling her father’s contract–even if that contract includes marriage to a very handsome, very sexy, very intense barbarian of a man. He might be everything a woman fantasizes about, but he wants more of her heart than she can give.

Dragon-shifter nobleman Lord Alek has not been lucky in finding his life mate. Resigned to a lonely life, he attends the bridal ceremony out of familial duty. Then the impossible happens–Kendall. Nothing goes according to tradition, but he can’t let that dissuade him. She is this dragon noble’s only chance at happiness and he’s not going to let her get away.

A Qurilixen World Novel

“I was rooting for Alek to get his girl from the first chapter…Another great addition to the Dragon Lord series!”


Jeep Diva Reviews (2013)


5 Stars! “This is a steamy shifter romance, it’s got fated mates and a happily ever after ending. Like the rest of the books in this series, this is a must read for sure.

About the Dragon Lords Series 

Books 5-8

The Noblemen dragon shifter brothers aren't new to the sacred Qurilixian bridal ceremony. After several failed attempts at finding a wife, it's hard to get excited about yet another festival. No matter how honorably they try to live, it would seem fate thinks them unworthy of such happiness... that is until now.

With very few words spoken and the shortest, most bizarre courtship in history, these dragons will bond to their women forever. And once bonded, these men won't let go...

This series is part of the Qurilixen World.
