Breaking up was never so hard...
Going undercover at a mass wedding as a bartered bride, Morrigan Blake has every intention of getting off the barbaric planet just as soon as it’s over. Or, more correctly, just as soon as she captures footage of the mysterious princes rumored to be in attendance.
After a euphoric night, Morrigan discovers her spaceship left without her, and Ualan of Draig is claiming she’s his wife. It’s not exactly the story this reporter had in mind. And to make matters worse, the all-to-seductive alpha refuses to take no for an answer.
Being cursed by the Gods was never so frustrating...
Prince Ualan is prepared to follow dragonshifter tradition and marry the woman revealed to him during the Breeding Festival. When the stubborn, yet achingly sexy, Morrigan refuses to accept their shared fate and his supreme authority over her, it is all he can do to keep from acting like the barbarian she accuses him of being.
About the Series
The dragonshifting princes have no problem with commitment. In one night, they will meet and choose their life mate in a simplistic ceremony involving the removing of masks and the crushing of crystals. With very few words spoken and the shortest, most bizarre courtship in history, they will bond to their women forever. And once bonded, these men don’t let go... Too bad nobody explained this to their brides.
Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.

Reviews for the Expanded Anniversary Edition (2014)
5 Stars! "I found out a few days ago that Michelle had re-released Barbarian Prince with additions and rewrites and I raced to purchase it as fast as I could. If possible, she made the book better! In only a few short hours I once again devoured the book, with a short space of time to sleep although my body woke me up again at 4am so I could continue reading!"- Heather Fortman, Goodreads, May 14, 2014

4 1/2 STARS! Pillow's story is quite a treat. It is all things sexy and passionate, with humor laced throughout and topped off with an ultimately emotional connection." Leigh Rowling, Romantic Times
"Dragon Lords: The Barbarian Prince seethes with sexual tension, conspiracy and intrigue." Julie, Romance at Heart
5 Dragons! “A fun, sensual read for a summer vacation!” – Gina, Enchanted In Romance
"Michelle Pillow has written a fine fantasy novel with erotic elements. The characters are unique individuals set in a well-conceived fantasy future world whose warrior heroes retain appealing primitive qualities that will appeal to any woman reader who isn't dead...As in the best women's fiction, the erotica in THE BARBARIAN PRINCE is integral to the story. I am looking forward to reading the continuing stories of Ualan's three brothers and their brides." - Allie, Novelspot, July 2004
"A sexy futuristic novel" - Ann Leveille, ParaNormal Romance Reviews, July 24, 2004
5 STARS! "With her second recent release, Michelle Pillow shows her diverse writing talent Whether the book is historical or futuristic, Ms. Pillow is a master of writing a story that mesmerizes the reader. I was captivated by the unique culture in DRAGON LORDS: THE BARBARIAN PRINCE, which was depicted in fascinating detail. To be able to marry one of their men would certainly fulfill a fantasy of mine. And speaking of men - this is the most intense, amorous and volatile hero of any book that I have had the pleasure to read. If you like your stories to have explosive conflicts and fiery sexual tension, then you will be devouring this book from the first page... DRAGON LORDS: THE BARBARIAN PRINCE will keep the reader enthralled for the whole story.”- Amelia Richard, eCataromance Reviews
5 BLUE RIBBONS! "I loved THE BARBARIAN PRINCE by Michelle M. Pillow...Michelle brings her characters to live within her engaging prose. I found myself smiling and laughing throughout. I look forward to reading the next book in the series...it's sure to be fun and entertaining." - Gail, Romance Junkies
5 HEARTS! "This is Ms Pillow’s second published book. Her first, The Mist of Midnight is a totally different genre, and Ms Pillow is proving herself to be a very diversified writer. In The Barbarian Prince, she has built a very believable world, wonderful three-dimensional characters and a very amusing, exciting, sensual story. Her love scenes are very well written and left this reviewer very hot and bothered! The princes find out that their brides are a force to be reckoned with; their enemies find this out also. There are some nice surprises, which add to the rich plot. This reviewer is looking forward to release of the stories of the other three princes." - Valerie, Love Romances
5 CUPS OF COFFEE! "Upcoming author Michelle Pillow makes the leap from a regency period ghost story in the Mists of Midnight to futuristic romance writer in The Barbarian Prince and leaves the reader craving more. The Barbarian Prince, the first of a series of four books on the Dragon Lords, is a delightful, spell binding read perfect for a summer escape.” Regan, Coffeetime Reviews, June 2004
"Dragon Lords: The Barbarian Prince seethes with sexual tension, conspiracy and intrigue. ... If you love new worlds, hot sensual romance with dominant but tender males blended with intrigue, this book is for you. I couldn’t put it down until the last word was read and found myself glad that there are three more princes whose stories will take me back to Qurilixian. Good Reading!" Julie, Romance at Heart Magazine
"THE BARBARIAN PRINCE is chock full of emotion, passion, danger, and a bit of humor....Michelle M. Pillow is off to a good start with her Dragon Lords series. THE BARBARIAN PRINCE has many surprises and intriguing characters that make it hard to put down. I eagerly await more stories about the Dragon Lords." - Sinclair Reid, Romance Reviews Today
FOUR ROSES"Ms. Pillow’s second novel is a wonderfully touching story about people from different worlds-literally-finding forever kind of love...The other three princes and their wives make interesting secondary characters, wetting the reader’s appetite for the next three books in the series. Dragon Lords: The Barbarian Prince will touch your heart and make your pulse race." – Jenni, A Romance Review
4 HEARTS"The Barbarian Prince is a great story with an inventive plot. Rigan is used to having her own way and not being any man's possession or following orders. Ualan is used to having everything his way and is a total alpha male. His dominant attitude comes thorough time and time again. The focus is more on the sexual tension between the couple and it's really hot. This is the first story I've read by Michelle Pillow and I will definitely be on the lookout for more of her work." - Angel Brewer, The Romance Studio, May 16, 2004
4 ANGELS"The Barbarian Prince is a captivating read...The characters' interactions were engaging. The sexual tension, frustration, and overall emotional development of Ualan and Morrigan kept the story moving...The dialogue is especially appealing as the banter back and forth is really funny. Michelle Pillow is real good at making you feel what the characters are feeling...After experiencing The Barbarian Prince and being introduced to Ualan's brothers, I definitely want to read the next books in this series." - Jaymi, Fallen Angels
