Happy Sunday, lovely peeps. I'm switching to my upcoming Naughty Fairy Tale The Dragon in the Stone, which is my twist on Beauty and the Beast. This releases February 3rd, and I've just found out that it's an Editor's Pick.
So without further ado, here is today's snippet.
To set the scene, Rhonda is in Drogan's castle, having just recovered from her injuries, and this is the first time they have spoken since she's been a little girl.
“Thank you for saving me, Drorgan.” Her whispered words forced his eyes open, and he swallowed hard when his gaze connected with hers. “I never got a chance to say that as a child. It bothered me.”
“You said it plenty to the stone.”
Rhonda smiled up at him, and, fuck him, if her smile didn’t light up the room, and make his dragon want to curl up at her feet. Why wasn’t she afraid of him, dammit? She was supposed to be horrified, not look up at him as though the sun rose and set in his eyes.
I haven't got my Cover art yet, but I can share my visual Inspiration for Drorgan. None other than Gary Taylor.
Penance needs to be paid come what may…
Several Centuries ago Drorgan was cursed into stone. Every twenty five years he is given one night and one day to find the woman willing to accept him in both forms.
It's the price to pay for his past behavior.
As a lost, lonely little girl Rhonda Butterbaugh was rescued by the dragon in the stone and she has never forgotten her fierce protector. It sparked her fascination with all things dragon. If only they were real. There are no such things as fairytales, however.
When she is attacked on her way home, and wakes up in a cursed magic castle, complete with a fierce dragon shifting lord, her life takes a turn for the surreal.
Determined to break the curse and rescue Drorgan and his kin, she hasn’t counted on Drorgan’s resistance.
Dragons aren’t supposed to be noble.
