Drakon’s Prey
Blood of the Drakon, Book 2
 

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

 
When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.
 

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

Questions about my Release Schedule for 2017


I’ve been getting a lot of questions and emails concerning my Salvation Pack series and other Samhain books. As many of you know, Samhain Publishing closed at the end of February and all their books were pulled from sale.

 

But I have signed with Entangled Publishing to bring back my entire Samhain backlist, including the Jamesville series, Legacy series, Spells, Secrets and Seductions trilogy, Hades’ Carnival series, and of course, the Salvation Pack.

 

Here’s my Entangled Publishing release date schedule as of this moment.

 

Drakon’s Prey, book 2 Blood of the Drakon series—April 24th

 

Samhain backlistJune 8th (Entangled is doing a big release of all my Samhain backlist, except for Wolf in her Soul, which will get its own release date in August since it was only available for a week before it was pulled from sale.)

 

Drakon’s Plunder, book 3 Blood of the Drakon series—July 3rd

 

Wolf in her Soul, book 8 Salvation Pack—August 21st

 

Wolf of her Own, book 9 Salvation Pack—January , 2018

 

As well, Beyond the Page is rereleasing my Dalakis Passion vampire series (previously published with Ellora’s Cave). All five books in the series will be releasing between now and the end of the summer. Harker’s Journey, the novella that started the series, is already available for only 99-cents at most ebook retailers. Lucian’s Delight, book 2 in the series, will be here any day now. I’ll let you know when it’s out.

 

I also have a story in the upcoming Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology due out on June 20th.

 

In the meantime, I’m working on another Salvation Pack book and more drakon books. J

 

And if you missed it, Coming Home, a sexy friends to lovers novella that was published in the Taming the Alpha box set, was released as a single title by Entangled Publishing earlier this year. Get it for only 99-cents at Amazon and other online ebook retailers.

Weekend Book Club--The Chosen by J.R. Ward

This past week, I read THE CHOSEN by J.R. Ward, the latest installment of her Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

This is an amazing series, but it hasn't been without controversy. Ward doesn't shy away from upsetting the balance of the world she's created. Some of the books in the series I love and have read again and again. Others I've read once and will never read again. But there is one thing I'll say about this series...it's addictive.

Once again, Ward has woven a complex story, bringing a seemingly impossible resolution to an ongoing storyline, while hinting at stories yet to come. I can't wait for the next one.

BLURB:

A scorching forbidden love threatens to tear a rift through the Black Dagger Brotherhood in J. R. Ward’s newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. 
Xcor, leader of the Band of Bastards, convicted of treason against the Blind King, is facing a brutal interrogation and torturous death at the hands of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Yet after a life marked by cruelty and evil deeds, he accepts his soldier’s fate, his sole regret the loss of a sacred female who was never his: the Chosen Layla.
           
Layla alone knows the truth that will save Xcor’s life. But revealing his sacrifice and his hidden heritage will expose them both and destroy everything Layla holds dear—even her role of mother to her precious young. Torn between love and loyalty, she must summon the courage to stand up against the only family she has for the only man she will ever love. Yet even if Xcor is somehow granted a reprieve, he and Layla would have to confront a graver challenge: bridging the chasm that divides their worlds without paving the way for a future of even greater war, desolation, and death.
           
As a dangerous old enemy returns to Caldwell, and the identity of a new deity is revealed, nothing is certain or safe in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, not even true love . . . or destinies that have long seemed set in stone.

Throwback Thursday Book Edition--Ransom by Julie Garwood

This week I'm rereading an old favorite--RANSOM by Julie Garwood. I have it in paperback, but downloaded the ebook because it was on sale. I adore Garwood's historical romances. They are full of history and intrigue and heroes and heroines you will come to love.

And as of the time I posted this, it was still on sale at the Kindle store for only $1.75. Well worth the price.

BLURB:

In the dark days after the death of Richard the Lionhearted, lives and lands would fall into upheaval at the hands of a power-hungry British ruler and his violent minions. One victim of the scourge is innocent Gillian, who is a mere child when the cruel and ambitious Baron Alford slaughters her father and tears her family apart. Alford, determined to recover a jeweled box for the despotic King John, is furious when the precious treasure slips through his fingers—only to be lost for more than a decade.

Now a beautiful young woman, Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclair and Brodick Buchanan. With the cunning and courage of the daring Scotsmen, and with the friendship of a new ally, Bridgid KirkConnell, Gillian at last fights the unscrupulous Baron Alford, laying claim to her home, her family, and her father's reputation. But in the presence of the mighty warrors, Gillian and Bridgid discover that desire can be a weapon of conquest, betrayal can slay trust in a heartbeat, and the greatest risk of all is to surrender to unexpected love.

Weekend Book Club--Hard Justice by Lori Foster

This week I read HARD JUSTICE by Lori Foster, the next book in her Body Armor series, which features ex MMA fighters as bodyguards. Danger, action, emotion, and a strong hero who isn't afraid to do what is right. Who could ask for more in a contemporary romance.


Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous… 

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she's sweet and intriguingly innocent. It's a risk-free assignment, until he's required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in. 

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it's not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that's real, raw and absolutely against the rules…
