ABOUT THE BOOK

Two operatives, two sides, same mission: if they choose to accept each other.

Cornelius Blue is a dragon and tracker, not a diplomat. A deadly interruption of the Blue Guard Trials, which should have begun an era of exploration for Cornelius's nation, threatens to crush his dreams of exploring his home world. So what's he doing in Magic, New Mexico, attempting to convince a dubious city council that his planet, Tarakona, should be allowed an embassy? Why is he playing statesman when he should be investigating the catastrophe?

Zuri Kaleo is a spy and wizard, not a seductress. And she should be, secretly, deciphering the disaster of the trials as well. But no, her king reassigned her to Magic, New Mexico, to sweet-talk a stubborn blue dragon out of building an embassy on Earth. Because an embassy there—as well as Cornelius's thirst for exploring Tarakona itself—might reveal the biggest secret Tarakona has ever known.

When Zuri discovers another spy was sent to disrupt the Blue Guard Trials, questions beg for answers. Surely no one was meant to die, were they? The Pirate King wouldn't have ordered that, would he? If only Neil was her teammate instead of her enemy, they could discover the truth together. And perhaps find each other in the process.

NOTE: This novella is the companion to DB Sieders' Blue Streak which is chock-a-block full of romance, gnomes, but not romance with gnomes, and adventure.

ABOUT THE BOOK

In this race, love is the ultimate prize.

Tatiana Blue is a fast-flying water dragonshifter of impeccable breeding and high social standing with a wizard to match. She’s the perfect contender for the race that will win her a spot on the elite Blue Guard. Until, that is, another blue dragon enters the competition, a handsome bad boy from the slums of Valiant City. But these rivals will have to become allies when they land in hostile territory…on another planet.

Ranvie Blue appears to be a carefree rogue, member of a wizard-run dragon gang that dominates the human warrens. But looks can be deceiving. When the race catapults him and his alluring rival out of their dimension and to Earth, the two blue dragons must team up to save themselves and the enchanted town of Magic, New Mexico, from a magical anti-immigrant group that seeks to destroy enchanted creatures from other worlds or dimensions.

Can an uptown lady dragon find common ground and passion with a dragon from the streets, or will their differences lead them and the citizens of Magic down the path of destruction?

Tropes: Rich girl, poor guy; rivals to lovers.

NOTE: This novella is the companion to Jody Wallace’s Blue Guard (coming soon!) and is chock-a-block full of red-hot romance and rascally gnomes.

ABOUT THE BOOK

She’s got a fever, and he’s the only one who can break it.

Sienna Gold is an energy dragon. Useful gift—as long as the excess power inside her doesn’t cause her to explode! When a demon kidnaps her leader, the burden of rescuing him falls on her shoulders. This rescue will take some teamwork, and she knows exactly who she is going to invite to help her.

Declan Amari is a wizard in disguise. He hates magic, refuses to use it, and absolutely abhors the thought of exploiting dragons for their magic. Unfortunately, one alluring and persistent gold dragon sees past his disguise and drags him, literally, to another world to rescue the leader of her merry band of rogues.

It’s a noble mission, but her needs could bring out the beastly nature he’s spent years suppressing. Can they come to a mutually acceptable arrangement in time to stop the demon hell bent on draining souls of Earthborn humans, or will his beastly nature cause even more devastation?

NOTE: This novella is the companion to Jody Wallace’s Gold Rush and is chock-a-block full of gnomes.

ABOUT THE BOOK

She didn’t know she was a dragon. He didn’t know he was a hero.

Oksana Popov, scientist, has no reason to believe in magic until she finds a portal to another world near the mysterious town of Magic, New Mexico. Even then she’s inclined to believe it’s military until she meets rascally wizard Wade Insbrook, who helps her through her transformation into an actual gold dragon. But when she tries to return to Earth and confront her parents about her heritage, Wade uses all the tricks in his very tricky book to stop her. Because gold dragons who don’t have a particular wizard to drain their power blow up. Literally.

And while Wade might appeal to Oksana’s baser instincts, he’s just not the right kind of wizard. Originally from Earth, he’s been hiding on Tarakona because of a deal gone bad with a demon. While things heat up between Wade and Oksana, her trip through the portal has alerted the demon, and soon the demon has discovered Wade at last.

A harrowing escape finds Wade and Oksana on Earth and racing to destroy a seemingly indestructible object before the demon uses it to raise hell. Their budding attraction won’t be the only thing that can’t survive the demon apocalypse.

Tropes: This fish out of water romance contains elements of romantic suspense and adventure, opposites attract, and the secret society trope.

ABOUT THE BOOK

She rescued him from death, but can he trust her with his life?

Alliah Red has one last duty before she can be truly free of the wizard who enchained her. She must guide the dragons in her master’s stable to the world of Earth. She’s the one who killed him, making them vulnerable to other wizards. Worse wizards. She just didn’t count on Leopold Crystal, the mysterious dragon from the dungeon, tangling her simple mission into a dangerous snarl.

Leo doesn’t trust the proud woman who barges into his cell claiming she killed their master, but he does believe that the pack of greedy wizards on their tails will stop at nothing to possess them. When Alliah leads him through a gateway to another dimension, his entire belief system—about himself, about magic, even about Alliah—threatens to crumble.

Placed in the unexpected position of guiding their companions in a world none of them understand, Alliah and Leo grow close in a way dragons in Tarakona are forbidden to be. But the wizards continue to clamor at the gates, endangering the town that is their refuge. Though Leo vowed he would never let his magic be taken by a wizard, can he learn to trust Alliah and her friends in time to protect them from those who would enslave them forever?

Tropes: This enemies to lovers romance also contains elements of the alpha male trope, the alpha female trope, and the protector trope.

ABOUT THE BOOK

He’s never met a dragon he couldn’t master—until her.

Katia’s been lost since her liberation. Her wicked former master held her under his cursed thrall, forcing her to do his bidding, but freedom is its own prison. Red dragons of Tarakona are warriors and defenders. But she has nothing left to defend, only a portal to guard, the portal that leads to a place called Earth and the enchanted realm of Magic, New Mexico. A distress call from the other side of the portal provides her the perfect opportunity to be the hero she was born to be.

Too bad a beastly, bossy, sexy earthborn dragon keeps getting in her way.

Dragon Master Ju-long Shi has seen it all. The anthropomorphic dragon shifter line from which he’s descended has tamed every species from tiny fairy dragons to great serpents and everything in between. But the enigmatic—not to mention annoying—new dragon in town intrigues and infuriates him with her infernal antics, as if she has something to prove. He meets his match in the red Dragon who will not surrender to his will or his charms.

When a pack of three-headed giants shows up in town looking for trouble, Ju-long and his merry band of dragon warriors find themselves outnumbered and outmatched. Katia is their only hope, if he can turn the alluring fireball from enemy to partner. Will their epic battle of wills end in a passionate alliance or a fiery disaster?

Tropes: This alpha male meets warrior female romance also contains elements of dominance play.

NOTE
No dragons were harmed in the making of this novella. The three-headed giants were, but they had it coming.

ABOUT THE BOOK

His plan: hide in plain sight. Not planned: falling in love.

Liam Connell is tantalizingly close to the end of his required sojourn in humanspace. On one hand, he’s eager to return and repair the leprechaun’s dysfunctional governing body. On the other, it means leaving behind his mouthwatering neighbor, Sal.

Salvia Rose Winter is no ordinary woman. She possesses a gene that lights up when leprechauns come near, which would blow his cover—and ruin everything he’s worked for. Yet when he learns he’s being hunted by an old nemesis from the Realm, he has no choice but draw closer to her for safety.

Sal never believed her grandmother’s leprechaun tales or that Liam will ever want her for anything other than her computer skills. But when he unexpectedly asks her out on a date, she wonders if wishes really can come true. One smoking hot night later, she’s convinced the answer is yes, oh yes.

By the time Liam realizes his plan has backfired, it’s too late—he’s fallen in love. Which makes her the target of a maniac who’ll stop at nothing to destroy Liam’s future—including murder.

Tropes: This best friends to lovers paranormal romance includes elements of disguise, a fling, a playboy, and unrequited love.

ABOUT THE BOOK

His show may be smoke and mirrors, but there’s no fooling the heart.

All her life, Princess Talista has hungered for every scrap of knowledge she can find about humanspace. But the Elder Court has decreed humanspace off-limits to subjects of the Fey Realm—except for two weeks of no-magic-allowed survival training.

Now it’s Tali’s turn to train, and she has no intention of wasting her time in a remote forest. Las Vegas is where the action is, and she intends to show the Elders that Sin City is a far better training ground—even if she has to go AWOL to prove it.

Jake Story’s adopted family is the definition of chaos, and choosing to be a magician in Vegas doesn’t exactly court normal. When he brings a luscious redhead onstage to hypnotize her, though, the passionate kiss they share amid a strange circle of lights definitely isn’t part of the act.

Their electric attraction is more than a simple case of boy meets fairy. It’s a link into a past Jake never knew about. A past with the power to create a rift between Fey Realm and humanspace, forcing them to make a terrible choice. A short human lifetime without magic…or an endless Fey lifetime without love.

Tropes: This royal fish out of water romance novel also includes a virgin heroine, forbidden love, and opposites attract.

Notes: SOTF was originally published by Samhain Publishing in 2008 and has been re-released with the Oxford comma reinstated where it belongs. This edition has been reedited, reformatted, and updated with a new cover but has not been substantially altered.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Magic might go by the book, but love doesn’t play by the rules.

As a crusader for justice, Embor Fiertag, Primary of the Elder Court, is forceful and tenacious. His love life, however, is a bust. His foreseen bondmate is Anisette Serendipity, whose sister nearly got him killed, and his political career barely survived the ordeal. Now up for re-election, romance is way down his priority list.

After her sister’s impulsive actions, Ani has no hope of becoming an Elder anymore. Worse, she’s drawn the eye of Elder Torval, whose attentions leave her cold. In fact, sparks of heat draw her toward Embor, but his rivalry with Torval is like flammable ink on burning paper. When Torval pushes his suit too far, Embor doesn’t hesitate to step in—right into the middle of an ugly political trap.

Forced to flee to humanspace, Embor and Ani have a slim chance to save the Realm before the Torvals shred everything from a peaceful democracy to the fabric between the worlds. But it will mean exposing their deepest vulnerabilities…and trusting their bond will survive the test.

Tropes: This political-themed romance also features tropes like an alpha hero, fated mates, animal matchmakers, cats ruling the world, and a road trip.

Note: 1000 Kisses was titled One Thousand Kisses while published by Samhain in 2011. This edition has been reedited, reformatted, and updated with a new cover but has not been substantially altered.
