This book cover? Fucking. Heinous. HEINOUS, I say. I'm sorrynotsorry, but I do NOT picture Pia as a somewhat unfortunate looking knock-kneed butt-less wonder with a 1980's haircut. Hey Fake Cover Pia, the 80's called and they want their acid wash jean shorts back. But wait you say, 80's fashion is hip again! I don't care. If current teenage selfie takers want to look like idiots and wear high-waisted acid wash butt cheek shorts that look like sporadically stained diapers, more power to em. But in my opinion, 1980's fashion is AWFUL and it should stay where it belongs: Underground in someone's never-to-be-dug-up-again 80's time capsule. Except the movies and the music. Those can stay here in 2015 with me, Maverick and Ice Man. Rawr. But anyway, I'm going to pretend like I didn't see this train wreck cover. Something else I'm gonna pretend I didn't see? This book ending. I mean truly. What. The. Fuck. This ending made about as much sense to me as this picture: Which is to say none at all. Except for the fact that that bitch^^^ up there? Could apparently be Pia, what with her fabulous 'do. Seriously though. I love Dragos and Pia. They are in my top couples of all time list, magical list of wonder that it is. They are kickass, they are mated, they are together. But the way this book leaves things? It's like they are broken in a way. And I don't like it. *foot stomp* *foot stomp* *foot stomp* Needless to say, the last few pages of this managed to bring it down two whole stars for me. Here's hoping that the next installment solves this little dilemma for me and puts what feels like a broken Humpty Dumpty back together again.

    Dragos and his family - STORY 2 The story in which Dragos is at his weakest and Pia needs to remind him who is his most valuable treasure. "I brought you gifts." Gifts? Nobody brought the dragon gifts. The very idea was laughable. There has been a terrible explosion and Dragos, the most poweful being on Earth, will have to strangle to recover. This short story is all about Pia and Dragos and the power of their love. I honestly cried in the end.

    I love Pia and Dragos, and was looking forward to delving into this, but honestly the title is a bit of a fib, implying more drama and intensity than actually occurs. This little novella is on the sweet side, whilst it didn't have me sinking into the sofa in delight, the novella was one I was enjoying, until the blasted ending - that just made me frown. The ending had me flipping back and forth to see if a page or two would miraculously appear - it was abrupt and not the ending I was hoping for.

    Enjoyable enough, though a little tropey and cliche with Dragos's whole amnesia and Pia's Mary Sue response to it all. I didn't like Peanut/Liam or whatever his name was, his character was far too cutesy and precocious, he came across as a spoilt little know-it-all brat. I hope he never gets his own full length novel, he's already insufferable enough, despite only being a few months old.

I have loved Pia and Dragos since the first book and with each and every book after, I enjoy them more and more. TH keeps things lively, entertaining and endearing, not to mention hot, hot, HOT! Dragos doesn't remember Pia and while that was horrible, it was wonderful seeing him fall in love with her all over again. The interesting part was seeing Dragos at his most dangerous and most cunning. He was so quick to pick up on things and put the clues together. It made me laugh though at how jealous he was of the other Dragos! Gotta love those dual POV's! Pia, of course, was amazing. She definitely rose to the challenge and took care of business. There were moments when she was upset that almost made me cry! But I'm glad she loves him so much that she would do anything for him. My only problem with the novella was, obviously, it's too short and I felt it left things unfinished. I wanted to know more about how Dragos was doing. And holy cow! Can we talk about Peanut for a moment? That about killed me when he showed up...I know Pia felt like she missed out on things. He is such a character though, we never know what to expect! I cannot wait for the next book, Peanut Goes to School. I'm sure we will get more answers in that one...and more Pia and Dragos of course! Favorite quotes ♥ "It’s going to take more than a penny to fix this…" ♥ "He wanted what that other Dragos had. She was the real treasure, more precious than sapphires, diamonds and gold." ♥ "I didn't want to stop kissing you." ♥ "You're the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen." ♥ “You are mine. You are always going to be mine. It doesn’t matter what came before, the only thing that matters is what is now and going forward. There will never be anyone else for you. Only me. Me.” ♥ "I'll always mate with you." ♥ Liam beamed. “I’m being a big soldier.”

    This was an interesting little novella that really put a spin on things in the Elder Races world. As the synopsis says, Dragos and Pia are pitted against each other almost in a battle of the wills for a short period of time. Unlike the usual cool an collected Dragos we're use to we get to meet the more primitive side of this guy which throws Pia for a loop. There's also mention of Liam in this book, he really kinda becomes the motivating factor between this couple to work out their differences.

This world filled with magical creatures straight out of dreams ( and nightmares!) just pulls me in and I so want a dragon of my own! Dragos is the ultimate hero, powerful, strong, demanding and yet filled with passion and goodness. He has had millennia to grow bored with life and yet his avaricious nature has kept him hunting. Now mated to Pia his world is filled with deep joy and the icing on their cake? Well, that's their son Liam AKA Peanut . Moving out of the city should make their lives easier but a chance accident leaves Dragos injured and Pia distraught ! Dragos has lost all memory of the woman who owns his heart but he would never deliberately hurt her, or would he? I love that Ms Harrison gives us these snippets of life within the Cuelebre household and it's such a treat to catch up with favourite characters whilst waiting for full length books to be released. In this story we get to see Pia face true heartbreak as the one thing she thought impossible comes to pass. Everything that she holds dear is at stake but she's one determined lady! Pia not only copes with her own grief but still thinks of practical things and sets in motion solutions to what could be a disaster. She's such a strong character with amazing depth and backbone .in this story we get to see just how different Dragos would be without his civilised veneer as his true nature is that of a beast! How can I feel so satisfied and yet so wanting? This very emotional short story tugged at my heart strings and I really empathised with the loss that Pia felt. The world this author has created is impossibly getting better with each book. I've noticed from her website that the next novella feature Liam and I know that many readers will be cheering for that as the Peanut is such an intriguing character filled with possibilities for mischief and mayhem . He isn't a huge presence in this particular story here but the scenes that he is in he certainly steals. This short read was a fabulous way to spend an hour and this reader is awash in admiration at the depth of emotion it generated. I heartily recommend reading this series and would suggest starting with Dragon Bound as it's an amazing journey.

They’re married. They have a baby. Yet they are still sexy and with the progression of this story, we got to watch them fall in love all over again. As the story begins, Pia and Dragos are settling into their new home with the baby, but there is still work to be done before the house is finished. And it’s during that construction work that Dragos is seriously injured. It’s so bad, he loses his memories… of his past, his humanity, and of course Pia. This is obviously a devastating blow to Pia. The novella follows her efforts to help Dragos remember their lives together. It really reminded me why I liked Pia. She is so loyal and completely in love with her man. She is brave, even in her moments of heartbreak and fear. I also really enjoyed the time spent in Dragos’ POV. I loved seeing that base, animal side of him that is a dragon as old as time. Watching his animal learn about his life as a man. And the very best of all is watching him fall in love with Pia all over again. I loved it. I don’t know how well this would serve readers unfamiliar with Dragos and Pia’s backstory. But for longtime fans, I can’t imagine that this won’t be a hit. I found it engaging and very satisfying.

    Another quick, sweet glimpse into the life of Dragos & Pia, though entirely too short. It was interesting to see how amnesia affected the always strong & reliable Dragos. And Harrison depicted an overlooked consequence of amnesia that some sufferers might experience- building a life on the foundations of the old you, a person that you don't remember but definitely existed based on the memories of the people you loved.

Fans of Dragon Bound will appreciate this sweet romantic story that shows us that no matter what is thrown Pia and Dragos’ way, this couple will overcome. Pia, Dragos, and their son Liam (Peanut) are in upstate New York, getting their new home put to rights. A freak construction accident causes Dragos to lose his memory, stripping him of everything that ties him to Pia and Liam. Pia must now put aside her pain in order to lead her mate back to her. The only problem is that the most dangerous creature in the Wyr Demise doesn’t submit to anyone. Though I haven’t always been a fan of Pia’s, she gets on my nerves at times because she’s so dang perfect, I did enjoy her take charge attitude when having to deal with a centuries old dragon who suddenly has no knowledge of her or their life together. Her actions and thoughts are spot on when she realizes that the love of her life doesn’t remember her. A second chance love trope, if you will, as we watch Dragos fall in love with Pia all over again, further cementing their already powerful bond. This change in events is sure to make for some interesting moments in the third novella, Peanut Goes To School, and the next full length novel, Night’s Honor. RATING: B

    The story of Pia and Dragos was the one that started this series and this novella was a bit of a surprise. The basic premise here is that Dragos has suffered a traumatic injury while in his human form which has left him with his memory damaged and he is more dragon than thinking being.

The title does describe the story quite well because we see a much deeper and resilient Tia than ever before and you will have more respect for her character after this. She take on Dragos recovery as a mission for life and nothing else other than her child matters. I will not give any spoilers here but Tia carries this story with her devotion and inner strength. The only problem I had with this story is that to me the plot was not fully resolved at the end, not sure if we are going to hear more in the next installment of the series or if we are supposed to assume that everything goes back to the way it was before. Since I found the ending to be a bit uncertain and unclear I gave this 4 Stars and will be curious to see how the next book addresses this story if at all.

    I suspected the story would cause me to cry and it did. Meeting up with Pia, Dragos and Liam is always a pleasure and this was no exception. The characters remained true to themselves throughout the story. Can't really say too much without spoiling the story. Just that there's a lot of story crammed into 10 chapters and then, fortunately, only a short wait until Liam's adventure. cross-posted amazon, goodreads I suspected the story would cause me to cry and it did.

    The one absolutely constant thing in this series has been the intense connection between Pia and Dragos,their Love literally lept off the pages so when faced with this short novella I cried like a baby.The amnesia traumatized me just as much as Pia!!! and it ended abruptly!!!!! Moving on to the next where hopefully this situation is cleared up, I need the Dragos and Pia connection reestablished stat!

    The ending ruined this. I'm agreeing with Val on this, it's just not right how the author concluded this. I hate it. It was great & sweet until the end and the real lack of anything being fixed. I guess the author decided things were too happy & perfect for Pia and Dragos, so she had to throw a monkey wrench into the world and melt it into the gears, no simple fix available. So sucky.

Not even his mate Pia. Dragos has regressed to his dragon, to the point of when Pia approaches to comfort him and check his injures he snaps at her, and breathes fire at everyone at the site. He then takes off leaving Pia shocked and full of dread. She then takes it upon herself to get all of Dragos estate in order, and then hunt her dragon down. She finds him on a mountain side not too far from their estate. As she approaches him, Dragos is thinking how foolish this human is, and how easy it would be to kill "it". Pia approaches Dragos with a few of his favorite things: Gold, diamonds, and sapphires. This is where the story gets really interesting. It is a wonderful journey for the reader to read this inspiring story of how Dragos 'reconnects' with Pia, while having to adapt to his "new life". Dragos is still his possessive, aggressive, domineering, passionate dragon-self. He just can't remember a lot of the people in his life.. both his friends and his foes. Pia is determined and possessive of her mate. (view spoiler)[Dragos chooses to 'mate' with Pia again (because she's in his bones), and the intensity is off the charts! ...needless to say Pia is relieved, happy, and whole. (hide spoiler)] If your a fan of the "Elder Races" series, you'll definitely enjoy this story!

    A short story, 6.6, in the Elder Races paranormal romance series and revolving around the Wyr and its dominant shapeshifters. This particular short story is part of a short-story trilogy that focuses on family life with the Peanut, even though this one is more about Pia and Dragos. My Take The official description/summary of "Pia Saves the Day" is actually more dramatic than the story. It had potential for being tension and drama, but Harrison didn't go there.

This particular short story is part of a short-story trilogy that focuses on family life with the Peanut, even though this one is more about Pia and Dragos. My Take The official description/summary of "Pia Saves the Day" is actually more dramatic than the story. It had potential for being tension and drama, but Harrison didn't go there. Instead, it's sweet enough, and more of a day-in-the-life, albeit a nerve-wracking few days for Pia as Dragos has lost all memory of who she or Peanut are. The sweet is in how much this Dragos hates the other Dragos, how possessive this one feels toward Pia, how realistic yet caring Pia will be toward this damaged dragon, and how supportive the Sentinels are for Pia. It includes some of the negatives for the nearby town in having someone like Dragos and his family moving into the area. We also get a glimpse of Peanut, and I suspect this is the purpose of this mini-series within the whole, to show us Peanut and his growth in so many ways. The Story Being Dragos, he can't resist being involved in all aspects of the construction process on their upstate home. It's an accident waiting to happen, and when it does, it's not Dragos anymore. It's that comment from Pia: "You have to be a big soldier now." The Characters Dragos Cuelebre is a dragonshifter, born at the beginning of Life. Pia Cuelebre is his mate and a unicorn shifter. Liam, a.k.a., Peanut, is their four-month-old son, who's already at the toddling stage! Eva is Pia's personal bodyguard. Hugh, Sasha, and Ryssa are Peanut's nannies. Graydon, Aryal, Quentin, Bayne, Constantine, and Alex are some of his Sentinels. Grym stays behind in New York. Dr. Kathryn Shaw is the Wyr surgeon and a falcon shifter. Ned Brandling was the shift foreman. Mitchell is the estate manager. Death, a.k.a., Azrael or Hunter, seems to be related to Dragos and after him. The Cover The cover is a beautiful range of blues for the sky, the flying dragon, the forested mountains, and the lightest blue the haze and lake below. It's Pia right in front of us, albeit with her back turned to us, in camouflage shorts and a coffee-brown tank top with her backpack of treasure beside her. The title is exactly what happens, for "Pia Saves the Day" indeed. Dragos believes she saves his day every day.

For me, Thea Harrison yet again takes her readers on a new adventure. In this Novella, readers are reminded who Dragos and Pia are.

Just like in the beginning, Pia will have to bring out everything she has to win her man back. Ms. Harrison really does remind you of who Dragos and Pia are and why you loved them so much. For me, it was Pia’s smart and cunning ways. The way she affects Dragos is just romantic. And as far as Dragos, well, if you think you know him, then you’re in for a surprise. He’s not the refined yet fierce Dragon Ruler that you’ve come to know. Nope, this Dragos is at his primal state. It was really different to see him this way. I’m used to him knowing everything and never blind sighted. However, in this novella, he seemed unsure of himself. But as any Dragos fan, he will still melt your heart in any state. This Amnesia definitely takes a toll on their relationship, but there’s no doubt that Pia will Save the Day. There is an HEA in this short story, but there seems to be some uncertainties. With Dragos not fully recovered, how will he continue to rule or will he regain all his memory in the next novella? Perhaps, it’s a set up for Night’s Honor which is the next full length novel in this series. Of course, that remains to be seen…read for that matter. I’m sure Ms. Harrison has a big plan for this favorite couple of the Elder Race, so hold on to your seats Pia and Dragos fan, they are not in the clear just yet. *ARC provided by author
