The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong?
Dragos Cuelebre needs a vacation. So does Pia, his mate. When the First Family of the Wyr head to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it’s no ordinary undertaking – and no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between hunting for ancient treasure buried beneath the waves and keeping track of their son, Liam—a.k.a. Peanut, whose Wyr abilities are manifesting far ahead of schedule—it’s a miracle that Pia and Dragos can get any time together.
They’re determined to make the most of each moment, no matter who tries to get in their way.
And did we mention pirates?

Thoughts and final grade
Lou: I got so excited when I learned that Thea Harrison was releasing a Christmas novella about Dragos, Pia, and their little Peanut. Dragos and Pia are one of my favourite couples of the Elder series and this novella was the perfect downtime to see how they interact as a family, and to see the softer side of Dragos who is so in love with his son. Pia wants Dragos to take them on holiday, and she sneakily plants ideas into the dragon’s head. This novella features a baby dragon, missing treasure, smoking hot sex, and a pissed off dragon who will go to any lengths to protect his family. Dragos and Pia are closer than ever and the romance between them has not waned in the slightest. Liam is growing incredibly fast, and his POV was so sweet. The ending was one of the most adorable endings EVA, and I will never tired of this couple so I’m hoping they’ll still have more stories to tell in the future.
I give Dragos Takes a Holiday an A.
MinnChica: I love both Christmas novellas, and all things Elder Races. Getting the two combined was an extra special treat!! Every moment we spend with Dragos and Pia has become a favorite of mine. This couple continues to be my favorite, and getting to see them with baby Liam warms my heart. I loved the way Pia cared for Dragos by subtly pushing for a family vacation. I loved the way that we got to see a few scenes from Liam’s point of view. They are so sweet and innocent and oh-so special! I loved the way that Dragos continues to care for Pia and Liam 100%, above all else. Their relationship is everything from sweet and tender to sexy and rough. The pirates were a fabulous touch that Harrison knocked out of the park. I can’t wait for the next in this series!!

E: **Happy sigh** Some authors are able to transition effortlessly between novels and novellas. Harrison is one of those. She uses her novellas to give a glimpse of the the rest of the world or of the everyday and they are just wonderful. I was extremely excited to hear she was returning to the Elder Races world with a novella and even more excited when I found out it would star Dragos, Pia, and Peanut! After all Dragos and Pia introduced me to this world and Peanut has been around almost since the beginning as well. I loved getting a glimpse into the inner workings of the Culebre family. It was great seeing exactly how well Pia and Dragos knew each other and how they worked to keep each other happy. I also really enjoyed how Harrison has given Peanut his own personality and development as he grows. His reasoning for doing certain things was so very logical and made me smile. I also loved the intrigue/mystery and setting that Pia, Dragos, and Peanut explored during this story. It was wonderful to revisit the Elder Races world in this novella. I am adding it to my list when I need a Wyr fix but don’t have time to read a novel.
I give Dragos Takes a Holiday an A+
Has: I adore the Elder Races series and Dragon Bound is one of my all time favourite paranormal romances. So I was excited and looking forward to reading a novella featuring Dragos, Pia and the Peanut who has definitely captured my heart!
Dragos Takes a Holiday was a fantastic side story which delved into the private and intimate look at Dragos’ family. The plot with the treasure hunters was entertaining and humorous. It was funny to see Dragos being all ‘dragon mode’ on the hunt for treasure and keeping up with a precocious and trouble-magnet baby son. There were some amusing scenes that I thoroughly enjoyed. Dragos Takes a Holiday was a fun, sexy and action packed novella! It was a great interlude in the lives of Dragos and his family which left me very satisfied with that last click for the final page on my ereader. I really hope we get more in the future!
