"A serial killer stalks the drákon world, but romance thrives in the midst of fear."

Romance Paranormal | Romance Historical

The ability to turn from human to smoke to dragon, and then back to human form, has set apart and isolated the shape- shifting drákon clan of Darkfrith from the rest of the world. They have been hunted for years. Thinking themselves to be the lone surviving drákon, Alpha Lord, Kimber Langford, Earl of Chasen, is shocked to receive a letter from his long-lost sister, Lia, telling him about another such clan living in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania.

When another letter arrives, this time from the ruler of the other drákon tribe, Princess Maricara (Mari), Kim starts to believe in their existence. But this also means that they know of his existence, which could prove to be quite dangerous. This fact is proven when the mysterious and beautiful princess arrives in Darkfrith unexpectedly with the awful news that a serial killer is targeting her -- and all of the remaining drákon. Of course, the killer and his evil band of henchmen have followed Mari.

Once Kim sets his eyes on Mari, he knows she is the one destined to be his mate. Proving it to her, however, will not be an easy task, and neither will protecting her from the killer. This young woman has a mind of her own, and no man is going to rule her life. But Kim and Mari will need to come to some kind of a mutual agreement to be able to save both of their tribes.

This continuation of Ms. Abé's drákon series, started with THE SMOKE THIEF and followed up by THE DREAM THIEF, is another superb paranormal romance with exciting characters and a suspenseful plotline. The ending of QUEEN OF DRAGONS promises at least another book to come, as there are several loose ends to be resolved. I can't wait to read more about these splendidly sensual creatures and the world they inhabit.

SUMMARY

They are the stuff of glittering legend, supersensual creatures able to shape-shift from human to smoke to dragon. Now they face an enemy determined to destroy their dazzling world of magic and passion.

Queen of Dragons

It’s a stunning claim: the existence of a lost drákon tribe. And it comes from an intriguing source: a woman calling herself Princess Maricara of Transylvania.

Alpha lord Kimber Langford, Earl of Chasen, can’t ignore the possibility. For whoever this unknown princess may be, she’s dangerous enough to know about his existence—and where to find him. And indeed, it isn’t long before Maricara breaches the defenses of Darkfrith and the walls around Kimber’s heart. Yet the princess arrives with urgent news: a mysterious serial killer is targeting the entire drákon race. To save their kind, Kimber and Mari must ally themselves body and soul in a battle that can spell their salvation, their extinction…or both.
