I write about drakons. You might be wondering: What's a
Well, about 4000 years ago, dragons came to our world,
mated with human woman, and fathered sons. Then the dragons returned to their own
dimension, abandoning their offspring. Feared and shunned, the drakonsâ€“or sons
dragonsâ€”have existed among us all this time. They have the cunning, strength,
abilities, and instincts of their dragon sires, along with the intellect and
emotions of their
human mothers. A deadly combination.
The stories about them have become myth and legend. Their
existence unknown to all but a select few. But there is a secret group of men
Knights of the Dragonâ€”who are working to capture and cage them. For drakons have
amassed fortunes, but their blood can offer healing and immortality to humans
who drink it.
Drakons mostly live lonely, solitary lives. But every now and
then a drakon crosses paths with a special woman, one who might change his
forever. Now imagine what would happen if a drakon discovered his fated mate,
woman meant to be his, is also the leader of his hated enemyâ€”The Knights of the
Jericho Drake had planned to kill Karina Azarov, to cut off
the head of the Knights of the Dragon, but now that he's met her, things just
got a whole lot
more complicated. As for Karinaâ€¦ Well, things aren't always as they seem.
After a busy day planning the downfall of the Knights, there's
nothing like firing up the grill and enjoying a tasty meal on the patio. But it
never hurts to have
a side dish or two on hand, so here's a very simple and quick pasta salad that

Blood of the Drakon
Drakon Jericho Drake, the child of a pure-blood dragon and human, has a simple
plan: Kill the
leader of the Knights of the Dragon and start a war. Except, when he meets his
Azarov, she can't remember who she is. Worst of allâ€“â€“he can't kill her. His
dragon side has just
claimed the dangerous woman as his mate.
Karina has no idea why these Drakon's have taken her to their home. And she most
does not understand why she's so drawn to her captor. Maybe because he's strong,
and caring, in his enigmatic sort of way. One thing she knows, he's not going to
hurt her. If
only she could remember something from her past that would explain why these
her so much.
