Red in the Morning: Dragons of Tarakona (Magic, New Mexico)
by D.B. Sieders on 2018-07-17
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.
No dragons were harmed in the making of this novella. The three-headed giants were, but they had it coming.
Red at Night by author Jody Wallce is about Katia’s dragon sister Alliah. Two other books about dragons from Tarakona are Silver Bound and Silver Unleashed.
Alternate tagline: She’s a hero without a mission. He’s a rebel with the perfect cause.
