We made it to the middle of the week, and I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the end of it. Those of you who follow me on Facebook will know that our second eldest daughter fell ten feet out of a tree on Monday morning. What was she doing up there? Climbing it for fun, of course. *head desk*
The branch she was holding onto, broke and down came Rach. Fortunately, she only broke her collarbone. Unfortunately the break is so bad, that she needs surgery to fix it. She needs a plate, screws and internal fixation with possible surgery further down the line.
We're praying that doesn't have to happen and she'll make a full recovery.
Anyhoo, like I said I'll be glad when this week is behind us, and she'll be on the road to recovery.
Now, for my Mid Week Tease this week I'm going back to my naughty dragon, who's still trying to keep Rhonda at bay, but she is having none of that.
“On second thoughts, we’ll be quicker if I fly. Ready to climb on my dragon’s back?”
Rhonda’s heart leapt in her throat, and amusement shimmered in Drorgan’s eyes, when she bounced in her excitement.
“God, yes, please. I’ve been dying to hitch a ride on your dragon. I was too out of it to appreciate it last time.”
“You should have said.” At her snort in answer he took a step back and fire flashed in his eyes.
Unperturbed by his reaction she carried on.
“And when should I have done that, exactly? You haven’t exactly been approachable, now, have you?”
Drorgan looked stunned at her reaction for a second, before he shrugged his shoulders, staring at the burnt patch of grass, clearly visible in the moonlight now. A heavy silence fell between them, as she, too, stared at the carnage left behind. Her skin tingled, and dread crawled up her spine as her mind meandered down the “what if” routes. A pointless exercise, because she was still very much here. Not only that, but her pussy spasmed in remembered pleasure, and she clenched her thighs together to relieve that ache. It was unreal, this need she still felt for the man, whose nostrils flared as though he could smell her need. No doubt he could, which should embarrass her greatly, but after all the events leading up to this moment, it just felt right to accept this.
“I had my reasons,” he finally said. He wrenched his attention from that burn mark to her face, and Rhonda staggered under the full force of his intense regard. “I could have killed you. I never lose control like that.” Running an unsteady hand through his hair he turned his back on her. Every line of his body screamed his tension. The air shimmered around him, and not caring how wise that move was Rhonda ran to him and wrapped her arms around his waist while burying her head in-between his shoulder blades.
A curse rumbled through him, the shimmering stopped, and turning around in her arms, Drorgan grasped her by the shoulders and shook her again. Waves of fury came off him, and it was only when her head snapped back and she gasped that he let her go with another muttered curse. Seemingly unable to keep his hands off of her, he ran them up her arms, and blew out a hot breath when she smiled at him.
“Damn it woman, do not do that. If I hadn’t been able to stop the shift, I’d have killed you. Where is your sense of self-preservation?”
“Completely lacking where you’re concerned, it seems.” She had to laugh, when he stepped away from her, threw a stream of fire into the air, and then proceeded to glare at her. “That won’t work either. I told you before, the big bad dragon act doesn’t scare me. Besides, I know you’d never hurt me.”
Arms crossed over his chest he pointedly looked to the ground. Rhonda willed away that sliver of apprehension crawling up her spine, and told the rational side of her brain to take a fucking hike.
“Not intentionally anyway, and before you say it, and add another reason to erect a wall between us, that was fucking hot. The flames and you losing control like that, though, I should imagine it will be mighty hard on my clothes and the furniture, and bed linen for that matter, if you incinerate everything in sight every time we have sex.” She’d stepped closer to him during her little speech, and getting on tiptoes wrapped her arms around his neck, willing him to let her in.
After a moment of hesitation, which seemed to last a lifetime, he uncrossed his arms and wrapping them around her, instead, lifting her up to kiss her. He growled low in his throat, when she opened up to the demanding sweeps of his tongue and kissing him back put all of her emotions into the kiss.
Feeling him shudder against her, before he took charge of the kiss, claiming her mouth in such a way that she was half expecting them to catch fire again, soothed the leftover niggles in her heart. This, here, right now, felt right. By the time Drorgan released her, they were both breathing heavily, and Rhonda was all but ready to climb her dragon and ride that huge erection digging into her belly.
Drorgan shook his head and pulled away with a short laugh.
“Minx, stop that. Next time I claim you it will be in the comfort of my bedchamber, and I promise I won’t incinerate anything. Magda would have my hide for starters.”
He grinned at her giggle in answer and tapped her ass. The action stung, and Rhonda made a big show of rubbing her behind while she mock pouted at him, earning herself a quirk of one haughty eyebrow.
“You behave yourself now or that swat will be a caress compared to the hiding your luscious ass will get, if you don’t stop putting yourself at risk.”
Rhonda lifted her nose up in the air, and tried for her haughtiest look, or as haughty and elegant as a woman could manage to look on a windswept cliff top, with her hair whipping across her face and her thin shift trying its best to fly up Marilyn Monroe style. Not that Drorgan would know what that meant, but judging by the flames swirling in his eyes, he appreciated the involuntary peep show she was giving him.
Her teeth started to chatter again, as the cold wind blew across her exposed bits and bobs, and it spoiled the whole effect somewhat.
“I-I’m, je-e-e-z, it’s c-o-o-l-d.”
Drorgan held a hand up bidding her to stay, and in the next instant the air shimmered around him, and Rhonda looked into the green eyes of his dragon. His black scales shimmered in the moonlight as his tail swished sideways, and he flapped his massive wings once before he hunkered down to the ground in a silent invite for her to climb on board.
Would she ever get used to the sight of him in his dragon form? From the sharp claws to the smooth scales that she knew from experience to be warm and giving under her hands to the spikes lining his tail, and the razor sharp set of teeth he bared at her in a dragon grin, he was majestic, deadly, beautiful, and all hers. Her brave, honorable dragon.
Drorgan flexed underneath her and shook his massive head, as she settled herself on his back, and her bare pussy made contact with his scales. His heat branded her, and she gasped when his presence in her mind registered.
You wouldn’t think me honorable if you knew what I want to do to you right now, little dragon.
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.
