    Dragon Down Under was a cute, sexy story about a dragon shapeshifter who is exiled from his home realm into the human world after being wrongfully accused of a crime. Once on earth, Kaden meets his human true mate when he buys land in Austrailia. Terrie is also instantly attracted to Kaden despite her resentment of having to sell her land to him because of money issues.The romance was very fast moving but sexy and exciting. The hero is pretty dominant and possessive (but still a nice guy) so if you like that type you should enjoy him. One big thing I have to warn about: the editing and some of the word choices are just not great. While I liked the overall story, the writing seemed kind of basic sometimes and needed a good editor. Also, the Kindle version has annoying formatting errors like adding random numbers at the end of sentences.I liked the basic story despite the editing issues, I thought the dragon hero was sexy and I liked the heroine for the most part. There is a spanking scene but wasn't a big deal to me since I read much more intense BDSM.

    Originally posted at: http://whippedcream2.blogspot.com/201...Reading about a dragon stripped of his powers was a wild ride once he met his opinionated human mate. She didn’t make it easy but he made it fun and I had a terrific time reading Dragon Down Under. There were a lot of plot levels going on in this story. There’s the bad guy who truly will stop at nothing to get what he wanted. And then there was the fact that Kaden, the hero, was framed and now has to adjust to living in a new world. Of course the heroine, Terrie, is a one hundred percent 21st Century woman who doesn’t like the word ‘obey’ yet finds that falling in love makes her want to, much to her chagrin and my delight. There are aboriginal myths and magical mayhem to further intrigue readers as well as a delightful romance that flourishes between Kaden and Terrie. The erotic nature of their physical relationship was done quite well and might give readers hot flashes. I liked the dialogue too. Kaden’s speech is reminiscent of where he came from so he has that other worldly touch and it made the paranormal aspect more believable. I liked Terrie’s independence and hard working demeanor. She tried to resist Kaden’s appeal but there were things at work she didn’t have knowledge of. When she learned about them, I liked the fact Ms. Castle didn’t have the heroine freak out beyond the slack-jawed response. Her character wasn’t squeamish or girly and the author stayed true to that. I adored Kaden’s forceful personality. I got a kick out of his dragon’s “Mine Mine” attitude. It’s so alpha and sexy. His previous job made him a master of decision, action and protectiveness which rubbed against Terrie’s independent streak. The results of their clashes were entertaining and well written. I had a lot of fun watching the sparks fly. I had absolutely no problem whatsoever with Kaden’s sexual appetites. I thought the scenes were great and I enjoyed every one. I will note however, that one scene in particular might be too much for even progressive erotic romance readers. I actually found it quite…stimulating and naughty but not objectionable. How should I put this? Kaden has a talented tongue and does amazing things with it in his man form and...in his dragon form. The fact that he is one hundred percent himself at all times and knows exactly what he’s doing, and Terrie equally knows it and accepts it because it’s Kaden, made it work for me. This is a fantasy and I see no reason why this scene can’t be accepted, but for those that need to know, I’ve provided the alert. The villain of the piece is a puzzle. He’s definitely power hungry, callous, cruel and vain but something happens that has me curious. Is he or isn’t he? That is the question only a sequel can answer. Ms. Castle has successfully hooked me on her world building. There is richness here, with more than just dragons. Even the Loch Ness Monster gets a bow and I laughed at what the author chose to say. I liked her idea a lot better than the reality. And that’s what I mean; the author has something up her sleeve regarding the bad guy and it sounds like it’s going to be unique and interesting. Her interpretation of what goes on in real life and imbuing it with paranormal elements truly fascinates me. Although I never got a sense of just how dastardly the villain was or got clarity on his true motives and goals, the author left me in no doubt he was a devious bad apple. The happily ever after was like a fairy tale ending. Kaden and Terrie get more than they bargained for, their friends find unexpected happiness and getting spanked isn’t such a bad thing after all. All in all, a fun time is eventually had by all, including the reader. Dragon Down Under is thorough entertainment with intense and sensual heat sure to please fans of erotic romance. I enjoyed the push/pull of Kaden’s and Terrie’s growing relationship as the hero learned what it meant to be a man on a cattle station. At the same time, he had to figure out modern dating practices much to his consternation and my giggles. Once he figured it out, his gestures and overtures were as romantic as I could wish. I liked the pace of the plot, the dynamic of Kaden and Terrie’s relationship and the commitment each had for the other. Ms. Castle has written a fun, engrossing and fascinating tale that kept my interest riveted from beginning to end. If a reader is looking for a good quality way to spend some free time, they can’t go wrong with Dragon Down Under.

    I got this book on sale and I sure GOT MY MONEY's worth! The story flows well, and the characters are vivid and convincing. The sex is HOT HOT HOT - love it! I think I'm going to look for a dragon to bring home!The angst of finding your mate and having her in danger is felt keenly and the big corporation trying to take over - brings out the BEAST in all of us! Add in an creep of an ex-boyfriend, a mystery, some good friends and that hot hot sex and deep love... I'm recommending this to everyone!

    interesting twists, like the characters. Thought she was a little too accepting of his dragon form so quickly. He's been excommunicated from his realm to the human realm as punishment. He lands in an area that happens to belong to a water dragon (Scotland). This new friend helps him adjust and set up an identity. Then helps him to buy some property in a warmer climate, just happens that the property he buys is in Australia and the former owner has problems of her own. Her land is sought after by a wealthy & pushy company, but she sells to a private buyer instead of the company and that creates problems for both of them. Plenty of humor, sex, action, but the "me man, you woman" caveman bit was annoying. She ran a cattle ranch, but she just lets this guy spank her as punishment for not obeying him, then has sex with him. It seemed a little forced to make the sex scene more exciting or something. Overall I liked the story, and the characters.

    When you combine my two favorite things - the Australian Outback and dragon shifters, I'm bound to love it. And I did. Though I hope we get a better feel for the Dragon Realm in future books. A place where dragons live is bound to be exciting and sexy.A really liked Kaden De-Kerr who took his exile in stride especially when he inadvertently found his true mate and realized exile wasn't so bad after all and the heat of the Outback was just perfect for a cold-hating dragon. Station owner Terrie Holbrooke was a tough woman who took things in stride except when they affected her land. West Net made a huge mistake threatening her ranch and her man and I liked the way that was resolved. I look forward to more sexy dragons in Australia.

    Enjoyable story of a dragon-shifter who is banished to another dimension (Earth) for a crime he didn't commit. However, he is rich (dragons hoard treasue in their lairs), finds a perfect piece of land in the Australian desert to move to, and also finds his true mate.There is some suspense and danger that keeps things interesting. Angela Castle's sentence structure is getting better than it was in, the 'Warriors of Kelon' or 'Kingdom of Kell' series, but there are still a lot of typos and misspellings. Also, the software used didn't convert well to .azw format, so there are a lot of symbols where a ... or a ? should be. Irritating, not that it matters because I read almost all of her books regardless.

    Je suis de retour avec Angela Castle mais pour son autre saga, celle de Ce dragon en moi qui selon moi est bien meilleur que Les guerriers de Kelon pour le moment. L’univers fantasy des dragons est peut-être plus ma came que les aliens, mais j’ai comme l’impression qu’il y a plus de logique et de continuité ici. Des dragons tous différents les uns des autres, des héroïnes inédites qui ne ressemblent pas aux autres, de la romance qui prend son temps et une mythologie propre aux dragons qui au final s’intègre bien au monde des humains.Kaden est un puissant dragon, capitaine de la Garde du Roi jusqu’à ce qu’il soit trahis par son bras droit et la Reine. Il est le mâle alpha type : sûr de lui, viril, sauvage, puissant, possessif et autoritaire. Il a du mal à se faire à l’idée de son bannissement, qu’il doit s’adapter à la vie humaine mais grâce à son ami Allistair, il arrive à voir les bonnes choses qui pourraient lui tendre les bras. Et Terri en est le parfait exemple ! Cette australienne pure et dure, vit au grand air dans la ferme familiale, qui malheureusement est en faillite et qu’elle doit vendre. Véritable garçon manqué, à cause de son fiancé précédent, elle n’a pas vraiment confiance en elle et en les hommes. C’est une femme franche, tête brûlée et responsable, on s’attache rapidement à elle.Les dragons vivent dans un univers parallèle à celui des hommes, monde qui à leur yeux est l’équivalent de l’enfer, un exil là-bas est pire que la sentence de mort. Mais comme va le découvrir Kaden, les rumeurs sont totalement fausses à ce sujet, il va avoir une seconde chance grâce en partie à Allistair, puis Terri. Les dragons peuvent prendre forme humaine, bien que cela ne soit pas naturel pour eux et dans le cas de Kaden est une des peines qui lui a été incombé. il ne peut pas utiliser ses pouvoirs magiques, il ne peut que se transformer. Les dragons sont une des races surnaturelles qui existent et on entrevoit des démons et des elfes aussi.La romance est très présente, surtout grâce à l’histoire des âmes-sœurs qui tient à cœur aux dragons. Allistair et Kaden vont en faire la découverte et avec leur point de vue on se rend compte de l’importance que cela a pour eux. L’amour est une évidence pour le dragon alors que la jeune femme commence par ressentir une attraction sexuelle hors du commun pour lui. Le sexe est ultra présent dans cette nouvelle, mais tout en restant soft, tout a une raison d’être. Les sentiments se mettent en place peu à peu et sont plutôt purs, solides. L’amitié et la confiance sont aussi essentiels, ils ont une place dominante dans le récit, tout comme les trahisons et manipulations.L’intrigue est plutôt simple : Terri est forcé de vendre ses terres mais cela n’a rien de naturel, quelqu’un tire les ficelles. Au début, tout est normal, se passant entre "humains", mais au fil des pages le surnaturel apparait et semble être au coeur de toute l’affaire. Tout est lié du début à la fin, on voit tout arriver à l’avance mais c’est toujours aussi simple et appréciable à lire. Ce genre de nouvelle érotique se lit vraiment pour passer le temps, mais il arrive parfois que l’on soit un peu surpris comme cela a été le cas cette fois-ci.

    About the tenth page I was feeling optimistic about the whole thing, but then the pace of the book just went down the drain...The plot per se is interesting but it wasn't quiet developed to its fullest. Terry, our heroine, has just lost her father and is now facing a huge debt that needs to be paid off or face losing her lands to a mine company that's been harrasing her family for the ownership of her lands, things turn for the best when out of blue there is a new interested party on said land, Kaden, So far so good. This couple could have been in dire need of getting to know each other, first of all, Kaden has been exiled from his own realm to the human one under falses accusation made by a woman, at first you can tell it has a huge effect on his reaction towards woman in general, but while meeting Terri all selfpreservation instincts that he might have develope flee and all his blood flows down south...same situation for Terri who should be able to distrust a bit more his new boss, yet they barerily exchange few pleasentries before you find them going dirty...and not soon later bonded...it's just leaves all the plot on the floor, making it random. The macho alfa characteritic of Kaden, in my opinion borders on rape when he forces himself on Terri...and afterwards his caverman conclusion with Terri agreeing just made me mad. I am sorry to say that I couldn't finish the book, it just got to be too much for me, but even the sex scenes were too much for my imagination to cope...Sorry to say, I found it short.

    This book was an okay read, thus the two star rating. I don't mean to imply it was a bad book, but in the genre, for me I have read other that I've enjoyed more. It has some small spelling / grammar errors - things like "giving" instead of "given" or "then" instead of "them". Nothing huge, but surprisingly these small errors threw me more than other books that were a mess.The story follows our dragon/man hero, Kaden, who gets banished from his realm to the human realm as a result of a false accusation from his Queen. He ends up in the Australian outback and comes in contact with his "true mate" Antoinette aka Terrie Holbrook - station owner. Kaden buys the station saving Terrie from having to sell to West Net Mining (evil bad guys). West Net don't know how to take a no, and become more aggressive. This story follows the pattern of man (or dragon) meets the girl and instantly knows she is his true mate. I can accept it on the man's behalf as that is their nature and culture. When the woman involved (usually after mind blowing sex) declares her love after all of maybe 24 hours, I get a little skeptical. I've read stories where this does happen and it's believable but the best ones are when time is allowed for the couple to actually become a couple.I gather that this story fits into a series but I'm not sure where. It does read as a stand alone and it is an entertaining read. However, I wasn't rushing to find the next instalment if there is one.

    Wow and hot hot hot! XDI loved it, seriously I literally flew through the pages, everything felt surreal and wonderful and I want to meet my own dragon by chance XD- Loved the victimized hero, and how he turned his punishment into his reward, especially meeting his true mate after he swore of women, and oh boy how he chased her.- I loved the older dragon Alistair, he was a great guy, how he rescued the hero and kinda sponsored him in the human realm, and then pushed him into forward positive thinking which led both of the lone dragons to find their true mates, who would have thought a dragon who lived for 3 hundred years would find his mate the same time his friend does and both mates were friends from the starts XD- I liked how direct the hero was with everyone he encountered, telling the heroine he wants her, showing her he was a dragon, telling other people he's marrying her after one day of meeting her XD- Everything moved so fast for the couple but the attraction and love was evident, I'm just envious I wish I would discover my own dragon when the time come *crossing my fingers*- Loved the elf/demon and human couple, they were fun to watch when they were together, and it shows true mates can be found gender notwithstanding.Overall, *thumbs up*

    Dragon Down Under by Angela CastleEven though I've read this fantastic story more than once I forgot to write a review so that I could get to the next addition...it's that enchanting,suspenseful,sexually charged with characters that are both strong,stubborn and steamy. With terrific adorable supporting characters that you are going to love as much as the main characters. That's why I couldn't wait for the next addition to read but also check to make sure I didn't miss anything to do with the Dragon Down Under storyline just in case. I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend you check out Angela Castle if you haven't already.

    This story has so much potential but, because of the writing style, it just doesn't come close to achieving its potential. It reads like an early draft rather than a polished, final version. Sentences don't flow one into the next, the sex scenes are more mechanical than emotional, and there isn't much depth to the main characters, notwithstanding their individual past difficulties. I did like the bit of mystery surrounding Serpent Mountain and the suspense created by Grekko, so I kept reading and found that section to be quite interesting. I'm prepared to give this author another chance.

    Spanking. Not my thing at all and made especially unpalatable when the male lead does this against the heroine's wishes. And instead of her being upset, because you know...she didn't want it and it's a break of her trust, she ends up "admitting" he's right and she "deserved" it. Are you f*cking kidding me?? I am ever thankful to have a strong stomach and mind.PS: This lovely scene is a little past the middle of the book so that's where I left off.

    Enjoyable as a dragon shifter story. The idea of other planes with portals to ours is an interesting one although it was not really investigated here. Kaden is quite old world in his speech and mannerisms which has it's own sexy charm and Terrie certainly fell for him quite quickly. I liked that she was quite tough and independent in her own right and kept standing up for herself where Kaden would have run rough shod over her.

    Dragons are very sexyI liked Terrie but she was very one dimensional: bitter and self absorbed. Enter Kaden, exiled Dragon and saviour for the cattle ranch. He is what keeps you reading until Terrie evens out. The world of dragons created is very intriguing. Alistair as the Loch Ness monster is an example of the subtle nuances that makes this book above average.

    3.5 star read for me.Liked it but didn't love it. The characters and the story line were nice enough but there wasn't much depth. It had dragons, based in Australia, sexy guys....everything to have made a great story.In the end I was disappointed because I really wanted to love it and there just wasn't enough development.

    Wasn't that impressed with this book even though the blurb sounded great. I just have a problem with insta-love stories and that's what this is. I also don't get the whole spanking thing never had and never will, but it seems everybody else gets it cause this is about the sixth book I've read lately that has some type of spanking involved.

    Fun book!Interesting suspense. But the interaction between Terrie and Kaden in dragon shifted form was what I liked best.Is there a book that has the story of the demon/fairy guy and his boyfriend? 'Cause that seems like it would be a really cool book!

    This book was awful. There was minimal plot, the love was instant and pathetic, and most of all the main girl who seems so strong gets pretty much rape-dominated into submission, the guy talks about owning her. I barely got through it, I wish I could return it but I bought it as an E-book.
