Pia and Dragos’s magical young son Liam (the Peanut), is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if that isn’t enough, he is also exhibiting new, and unpredictable, magical gifts. To protect him, the concerned parents decide to move to upstate New York.
Both Dragos and Pia relish the idea of leaving behind the city. They finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety. It’s a breath of fresh air—literally—but their idyllic situation is shattered when Dragos is injured in a freak accident.
Stripped of his memory and bereft of Pia’s taming influence, there’s nothing holding back Dragos’s darkest side. And in order to restore her family and save her mate, Pia must confront the most powerful menace in Elder Races history.
It’s going to take more than a penny to fix this…
Pia Saves The Day is a short novella that takes place right after the previous novella, Dragos Takes A Holiday. Dragos, Pia and Liam are preparing to move into the house they own up state. During some routine construction there is an accident that kills a worker and seriously harms Dragos. The blast causes him to have amnesia, which I found to be slightly blah. I mean…everyone and their mother has done an amnesia story, but Harrison does a decent job of making it unique and putting her spin on it. Since Dragos can’t remember who he is, this gives Pia a chance to win him over again…which of course she does.
I mean, I went into it knowing what the timeline of events was going to be since amnesia stories are highly predictable. Person loses memories tragically during accident of some kind, person slowly gets memories back, person has hot sex which jogs some more memories, happy ever after, the end. Even with the predictability I found I enjoyed this simply because I adore the world Harrison has created and these short little novellas are a way for me to climb back into the world between the standard length novels. Plus, DRAGOS, need I say more? Sex on a stick, that man. Yummy, memory or no memory.
There is one more novella before the next full length book which I know I will grab and read because no matter how cliche, Harrison has me coming back for more. I can’t get enough!
I give Pia Saves The Day by Thea Harrison 4 stars!
