Tears of the Dragon by Cara Wylde

A myth twisted through the centuries,
A prophecy that survived history,
A cure no one dared to touch…

She seeks the Golden Fleece…
As a researcher and professor of Mythology and Folklore at Harvard University, Aileen Callas wants to do much more than tell her students some old, barely authentic stories. She wants to prove the myths are real. After all, one of these ancient myths saved her life as a child. A dark prophecy warns against prying. Undeterred, Aileen assembles a team of investigators and sets on a journey in pursuit of the truth.

Cursed to guard an ancient treasure…
Isolated in the mountains, bound to an old, powerful object, Drakon has lost all sense of time and space. He was waiting for something, but he can’t remember what. Or, was it someone? If only he could sleep for an hour, if only he could close his eyes and dream, maybe it would all come back to him: his true name, his mission, his humanity, the memory of her…

Unaware of the danger, Aileen steps into the dragon’s cave.

Lured by her beauty, Drakon can’t decide if he wants to turn her into dinner, or sweep her off her feet.

He wants to eat her (in more ways than one), she wants to save him.

But there are vile men on Aileen’s trail, and all they want is to kill the dragon, steal the Golden Fleece, and get rid of the expert in Greek Mythology.

Tears of the Dragon is a full, standalone novella, with a happily-ever-after, and NO cliffhangers. Intended for readers 18+

Excerpt (Spicy)

This was insane! A couple of hours ago, this man had tried to kill her. Burn her alive. Now, his lips were inching closer and closer to her left nipple, and Aileen was allowing him to lick it, tease it, suck it into his mouth. She moaned and arched her back. She couldn’t believe her own reactions to his touches, her own openness to him. The bed of leaves he had prepared for her did little to protect the still sensitive skin on her back from the cold, rough floor of the cave. Somehow, the slight pain could barely register in her heated brain. Drakon was swirling the tip of his tongue around her nipple, over and over, and Aileen found it difficult to focus on anything else but him. She should have been worried about the sacrifice, about the promise she’d just made to him, about her team being attacked in the middle of the night… So many things to worry about, so many problems to solve, yet all she could do was pull at Drakon’s hair, massage his scalp as he played with her nipples, and press his head harder against her breasts. Problems and sacrifices could wait. Right now, all she could focus on was him and the way his eyes sparkled and his pale skin glowed in the dim light of the candles spread all over the floor.Satisfied with the hardness of both her nipples, Drakon kissed his way down her stomach and belly until he reached her mound. He stopped to enjoy her scent and run his hands over her hips and thighs. Her curves were amazing! Her skin was tanned and soft, and every time he cupped her butt or her breasts, he loved the sensation of having his hands full. He could knead and massage, and Aileen would respond with moans and deep, loud breaths. His cock was so hard that he could barely hold himself back. He wanted to turn her around, on her stomach, lift her hips in the air, and enter her in one swift motion. His body was screaming at him to do it, but he knew he had to take things slowly. Drakon wanted to enjoy every minute of this. He could never know when the bliss of having Aileen would be taken away by fate.“Please,” she whispered.

Drakon smiled. He knew what she wanted. He had been hovering over her glistening folds for a minute, and she was growing impatient. He licked his lips in anticipation, then closed his eyes and let the tip of his tongue run from her entrance up to her clit. She tasted delicious.

“Oh… oh, yes…”

Excerpt (PG)

“Annie, this is Ram. Ram, this is Annie.”
She felt an awareness that told her this man meant something to her. “Pleased to meet you,” She said and held out her hand. Ram gripped it and a shock went through her whole body. Her eyes widened in surprise and so did his.
“Is it hot in here or is it just me?” Cam asked with a nervous chuckle.
“Cam, excuse us for a moment and shut the door on your way out,” Ram instructed.
Annie thought that it was weird for Ram to throw Cam out of his office like that. She heard the door close and now they were alone. Ram used her hand to pull her up against him and his arms wrapped around her. His lips dropped to hers and he kissed her gently. “You feel it too, don’t you?” He asked.
She nodded. This man was hers. It seemed her spell had worked after all. Whatever the spell had done, had probably caused him to be here. How would he feel when he found out what she had done? It couldn’t be too bad if it had led them to each other, right?
He kissed her again, except this time it wasn’t sweet or gentle. It was a claiming kiss that left her in no doubt as to who she belonged to or what he wanted. It left her feeling raw and needy. It also made her wish they were alone in bed anywhere they wouldn’t be disturbed.
“I woke up this morning nude on a beach. Do you know anything about that?” He asked.

Excerpt (Spicy)

His heart pounding, and his senses on high alert, Atreides took her in his arms and kissed her soundly. With a soft sigh, her mouth opened to him as his hands stroked her back, pressing her trembling body to his. He then pushed her against the green wall, his caresses becoming frantic. His fingers inched under the hem of her shirt, pulling the fabric out, freeing her skin to his touch. Like a fever, his desire grew and swelled, leaving him finally breathless.

She moaned when his hands skimmed the side of her breast. The lace of her bra was a barrier he didn’t care for, and his finger hooked underneath the elastic, moving it over the swell of her breast. Her softness filled his hand, and it made him groan in her mouth. He played with her nipple and was rewarded by her short gasp when he pinched the taut nub. His other hand followed a path down her navel, then slipped inside her jeans, brushing her over her panties. She pushed against his hand, and that was all the invitation he needed to lower the fabric and search for the warmth of her core. Ariel was ready for him, and he let his finger hover over her folds before pushing inside her. Her cry of pleasure sent him into a frenzy, and Atreides had to fight the need to tear her clothes apart. His throbbing hardness demanded relief, and he was losing control fast.

Leaning away, Ariel looked at him from under hooded lids, her lips red and swollen, and he couldn’t help but imagine her naked, bared to his sight. Her hand left the nape of his neck and skimmed his shirt, caressing his chest, then following the ridges of his pectorals, she traced patterns with her fingers. Finally, she hooked her hand under his belt, fingers reaching for the hair dusting his lower abdomen.

Her lips curved into a smile when she found no boxers underneath the jeans as if she had expected as much from him. Upon contact, Atreides thrust into her hand that felt like a glove around him, caressing him in time with his grunts, and he caressed her in return. As a second finger joined the first, she grew wetter, and her small cries and moans filled his ears, robbing him of his ability to reason.

They pleasured each other, in a tangle of hands, mouths, bodies dancing to a rhythm only they could hear. Their tongues clashed, and their kisses grew wild. Their touches became unrestrained as their pleasure mounted, rising until only the crescendo building deep inside them existed.

Ariel shattered first, and Atreides cried her name a heartbeat later. Spent, he moved his lips over hers in a more sedated kiss, feeling the need to cuddle her.

Then reality intruded…

Kissed by Fire by Michelle Fox

Caught up in the supernatural slave trade, mermaid Mila Sealight needs saving, not promises of undying love from a cursed, fire breathing shifter. But allies are scarce, making the down-on-their-luck dragons of Scotland her only hope.

When dragon Niall MacTeine boards the slaver boat with his brothers, he knows they are going to save people, he just never expected to be rescued himself. He’s been cursed a long time and has started to give up hope.

Everything changes when Niall is thrown overboard while fighting the slavers and Mila gives him the ‘kiss of the sea’ to save him from drowning. That’s when it hits him—she’s the key to his freedom.

But breaking the curse that locks him in his human form requires trust and an open heart. Neither of which Mila gives lightly. Niall will have to prove he’s worth the risk in order to claim his fated maiden. And he will pay the ultimate price in the process.

This is book 2 in the Maidens series but it stands alone. You’ll have more fun if you read book 1 Kiss the Dragon (which was a USA Today bestseller) but it’s not required.

Release date: Mar. 7th 2017

 

 
 

Excerpt – (Spicy)

Niall’s gaze broke away from mine. “Aye. Well, you see, I was so busy fighting wars and then getting cursed that…it’s been some time since I’ve loved a woman.”

I shrugged, unconcerned. “I’m sure I ken enough of the way this works for both of us.” True, this would be my first time with a two leg and as a two leg myself, but the mechanics of it were simple enough. “And the sooner we finish this, the sooner I can rescue my sister.” Tossing my shirt away, I said, “Your turn.”

He pursed his lips and thought for a second. Giving a decisive nod, he shed his shirt and started on his pants. I matched him, glad to be rid of the stiff fabric around my legs. Within moments we stood naked in front of each other. Niall had a broad chest with lean muscles and more than a few scars.

I reached out and traced one that ran just under his clavicle. “War wounds?”

He nodded. “Aye. Dragon skin is tough but some ken how to sharpen a blade to cut us.” Capturing my hand, he reached out and traced a scar that wound its way around my bicep. “What happened here?”

“Caught in a fishing net,” I said. “Rescuing dolphins.”

“Did they make it?”

“Aye.”

“Do you come to the rescue a lot?” His head dipped down and he pressed a kiss over my scar. “Dolphins, your sister…me.”

I shrugged. “I do what needs to be done.”“You sound like a dragon,” he murmured.

 “You would ken more about that than me.” I kissed his scar, and once again the warmth of this skin amazed me. The ocean ran cold more often than not, especially in the dark deep. Niall radiated heat like the tropics.His hand cupped my breast, thumb teasing over the nipple. “You’ll be an expert in dragons soon enough.”

Out of the Ashes by Julia Mills

Meet the Guardian of the Zodiac and their companions the Dragon Guard of the Sea! Lost and thought dead, these mighty dragons arise from the depths to not only help to save all mankind but reunite with others of their kind.

The mission is simple – get into the enemy camp, free the humans, return the demons to Hell and return home the victor. For a Daughter of Poseidon and her constant companion, Drákon – a centuries old water dragon, that’s called a good day at work.

Everything is going as planned. Una, eldest daughter and Guardian of Pisces, has checked one and two off her list, and is headed to three when things get complicated. Brody Mason bows at her feet, pledging his allegiance to not only her but also, the gods and the Light. As a show of loyalty, he promises to take her to the portal from Hell and with his own blood help her close the door on the Underworld. This one act will rid the world of evil forever. There’s only one problem…he’s a Hellhound.

It doesn’t matter that Drákon doesn’t believe him, fearing it yet another trick of Hades to deter them from their mission or that there’s fire in his eyes and the smell of brimstone on his olive skin, she can feel the truth in his words. It also doesn’t hurt that with just one glance he sets her heart ablaze and her pulse racing. Not that this is about love or lust, it is all about saving the Earth, protecting the humans, defeating her uncle’s evil…or is it?

One leap of faith leads Una and Brody on a race against time and facing the fight of their lives. Hiding from Poseidon, Hades and an army of Guardians led by her sister, Zoe, this couple may have the best intentions but in the end, isn’t that what paves the road to Hell?

Excerpt (PG)

“They have invaded the entire western and southern borders. I fear the coast is next. I’m going to need you to go and help the humans with this battle. They are ill-equipped and just not strong enough to fight evil on such a widespread scale.”

Una looked at her father, Poseidon, the god of the sea, as he stood beside his periscope with a worried look. She’d never, in all the millennium since her birth, seen the great god anything but confident and unencumbered by the woes of the Earth and Her human population, but this was different and much more personal. She hated to see the deep lines feathering from his glowing blue eyes or the downturned expression emphasized by her thick white mustache and beard.

Family issues sucked, especially when you were a deity and your whims effected the world as everyone had come to know it. Hades, Una’s uncle and Poseidon’s older brother had caused trouble in the past but nothing so catastrophic or life threatening to the beings Una and her sisters had been charged with keeping watch over.

Named the Guardians of the Zodiac, the Daughters of Poseidon had long been protecting Earth and her humans from afar. Una could scarcely remember the last time her boots had walked the terra firma, smelled the sweet scents of the many blossoms and tasted of the bounty only the small blue and green planet had to offer. It had always been their directive to lend assistance from afar, never to cross paths with the humans and always remain the deities they were intended to be. Things had now changed. Una would be the first of her sisters to fight alongside the ever resilient race with the hopes of saving them from certain demise. The first to do what they’d been training for since they were old enough to hold their weapons.

Bowing, her bow at her side, the Guardian of Pisces asked, “When shall I leave? Shall I take Drákon?”

Without turning away from his view of the Earth, Poseidon nodded, “You will need to leave this night, my daughter. When the veil between our worlds is the thinnest. By all means, take the dragon with you. You will need the help.”

Breathing a sigh of relief, Una called to her constant companion and training partner, Drákon, a centuries old sea dragon her father had given the power to change from his original form to that of a human man. “We’re a go. Put on that flesh suit you’re so fond of and meet me in a hour at the docks.”
“Hell yeah,” Drákon cheered, using the human vernacular he’d been studying for centuries. “Yippee ki yay…”
“Whoa, there cowboy,” Una smiled, glad she’d been paying attention when her companion read out loud. “That’s a good way to meet the pointy end of Dad’s trident.”

“Duly noted.” The ancient being was once again all business. “See you at the docks.”

Working hard to chuckle and happier than she could admit to be leaving the pomp and circumstance of her father’s court, Una answered, “See you there.”
