When Viola shifts into a dragon Queen after the centuries-old curse has been broken, she is taken prisoner by a greedy stud who wants her to have his babies. Rescued by the dragon embassy and put into protective custody, Viola tries to learn about her new place in dragon society, but her entire world has turned upside down with bizarre rules and rituals she can’t even fathom.
Sergei hates Queens. But Viola is more human than dragon. When she accidentally names him her protector and consort, dragon law does not allow him to refuse. But the deep attraction they feel to each other makes it more than the life sentence it could be. Even though there’s a dangerous cult out to kill her, dragon studs who want to kidnap her, and the old Queens do not like that their power structure being challenged by all the new, emerging Queens, Sergei vows that no one will harm Viola and he’ll sacrifice his life to keep her safe.
But when Sergei is accused of murdering a Queen, Viola has to find her power to save the both of them, before it’s too late.

Midnight Lady: Bad Girls of Romance
by Jamie K. Schmidt on 2018-06-09
Maggie Flannery walked away from an arranged royal marriage in order to open a bar in Cozumel. That decision cost her mother, Black Belle, two of her fastest airships. So when Maggie hasn’t heard from her in almost a year, she figured it was because she was still pissed.
But it turns out that Black Belle wasn’t just sulking about forfeiting her daughter’s bride price. Belle kidnapped a crazy monk who claims to know where Aztec treasure is buried. Belle has gone on the run with him, and half the galaxy is chasing them. And now, there’s a price on Maggie’s head.
To locate her mother, though, she’s going to have to hit up her estranged father for clues and maybe that nefarious airship captain she hooked up with for some wild sex and adventures. (Although lately, it’s been more quickies and take-out tostadas.)
When Maggie’s bar is broken into, her customers roughed up and her best friend taken hostage, in order to save her friend’s life and get her own back, Maggie has to track down her mother who might blow her out of the sky as soon as she gets in range.
