The Serpent Sea, by Martha Wells

Second paragraph of third chapter:
Nothing had changed since last night. The others in the hall breathed deeply in sleep, except for some of the warriors on the far side of the room. From the soft noises, they were enjoying each other’s company under the blankets. Good idea, he thought, and flipped the blanket back up to settle down again and nuzzle Jade’s neck.
Second book in the series about shape-shifting dragons in a slightly steampunky world. Our hero from the first series must try and retrieve a crucial item from the groundlings (ie humans). Decent enough, but I don't quite grasp the enthusiasm that some people clearly feel for the series. You can get it here.

Believe it or not, this was the top unread book on my shelves by a woman. Next on that stack is Boys in Zinc, by Svetlana Alexievich.
