The Dragon Legacy – Excerpt

‘ “Who upset you? Xavier?” Lukas’ fury reddened his face and neck.

“Yes.” The dragon towered above her. His hot breath seared her cold cheek. Her tentative fingers touched the spot. His face wore a hard-set expression. His lack of control unnerved Fleur. Heightened passion narrowed and darkened his eyes. She watched mesmerized as their color changed from green to gold, no longer human. The golden beast ruled here. Her gaze dropped to his mouth. She expected flames. Fleur shivered with awareness as she listed the dangers of a liaison with him. She ignored her common sense. Whatever the risks, she would surrender to his heat and passion.’

What Makes A Great Summer Read?

DSCN1117

So after Saturday’s rain  the summer sun has returned and with it my happy optimistic mood. If  you read my last post  you will recall I was feeling down and attributed it to the grey day.

DSCN1106

Taking advantage of the sunshine I spent a couple of hours tidying and enjoying my garden with these  lovely butterflies  who decided to join me. I love gardening because it gives me time to think and plan and this post is a result of yesterday’s gardening interlude.

Lots of people will be off on holiday in the next few weeks and many will be searching for  a good book to enjoy whilst they’re relaxing on the beach or sitting by the pool.

Even if you’re not going away to the coast or countryside, if the sun stays out the excuse to sit in the garden with a good book is too much to resist.

DSCN1139   DSCN1137

The point of going on holiday is to relax and most of all escape from your normal daily routine. Having a little ‘me’ time recharges our emotional and physical batteries before returning to our often stressful lives.

DSCN1141

So a summer read must offer escapism. Many novels today mirror reality or focus on the worst bits of everyday life, I would avoid these when looking for my holiday read. That doesn’t mean the story has to be sugary sweet just hopeful. Or so far removed from reality that even if it focuses on the darker side of human nature the reader knows that anything is possible including a happy outcome. 🙂

DSCN0763 DSCN0783 Continuing the escapism theme, the setting of a summer read is important. It needs to be in a place the reader would like to explore, so coastal locations are good as are mountains and picturesque countryside. I enjoy reading stories set in the summer too but I don’t think this matters as long as the setting is escape worthy.

DSCN0952

If you’re on a crowded beach then its easy to be distracted. So the ideal read must have an absorbing plot with lots of twists. Vivid characters are essential they need to make an impression. The genre of the story is subjective but I love a story with mystery ,lots of  action and sizzling romance. The romance doesn’t necessarily have to be the focus of the story but  a little spice always adds to the enjoyment. 😉

So that’s my recipe for the perfect summer read.

I leave you with some snippets from The Dragon Legacy maybe it could be your perfect summer read?

 Let’s You Escape:

‘The elusive turquoise-scaled dragons appeared through the haze. Their minds united by a single aim: the dragon egg’s safety, the reason they risked exposure to the human world.’

 Fabulous Setting:

‘The dragon lord’s golden eyes focused on the grey sky above the rock strewn hills. Dawn mist hovered around the summit like a silken web. It drifted through the rocky outcrops until it reached the valley where he stood alone.’

‘Mists floated across Lake Ullswater and cloaked the twisty lanes in an impenetrable shroud.’

Absorbing Plot:

‘Demon slayer Lukas Draco is a loner. He lives by two simple rules: No emotional entanglements and duty must remain his first priority. His beliefs are challenged when he’s inexplicably drawn to Fleur, a human woman with an unusual psychic aura. Sparks of sexual attraction ignite  threatening both his search for the dragon’s egg he buried a thousand years ago and Fleur’s life. Under the cover of a murder mystery weekend an apocalyptic hunt begins’

Vivid Characters:

‘Fleur stole a sideways glance at Lukas…His face was the epitome of masculine beauty, characterized by well-defined angular cheekbones, covered with pale, almost translucent skin. Its apparent delicacy did not detract from his masculinity; he looked like a fallen angel.’

‘Xavier Serpente clenched his manicured nails into his expensive Italian silk trousers… The threat of danger, which simmered under the surface of his urbane respectability, was his greatest attraction.’

Mystery:

‘Lukas forced his mind back to his mission. He studied his murder mystery character profile. His fellow participants mustn’t find out his identity. Or the real reason for his presence at Hallows House.

Action:

 ‘Escape impossible, the furious dragon man slammed him against the tree trunk. His bones cracked. The onslaught repeated with greater force, and his head and neck rocked on his shoulders.’

Sizzling Romance:

‘Lukas caught hold of her hand as she turned away from him. “No, don’t! I like you this way.” He ran the pad of his thumb along her responsive lips. “Trust me. Everyone will like you as you are.” She looked vivacious, like the color of her dress, with lush, pink lips and hair like golden rain as it slipped from its elegant restraints. He wanted her back in his arms. His arousal rocketed several degrees as the tip of Fleur’s tongue darted out and tasted his thumb. “Hell!” Another few seconds and leaving wouldn’t be an option.’

The Dragon Legacy – The Players

Fleur and Lukas  The Dragon Legacy

Fleur and Lukas

The Dragon Legacy

The Dragon Legacy is the first in  a series of  fantasy/paranormal romance books about  supernatural dragons who  protect the natural balance of the world.  We meet Lukas Draco, the dragon lord in the first book. The leader of the ancient order of dragons Lukas’ mission is to find and protect the last dragon egg from  evil in the form of the demon, Xavier.  At a quintessentially English Murder Mystery weekend Lukas meets shy,naive Fleur Curwen. The attraction  between them is instant and powerful and makes him question his way of life.  

Fleur



‘When emotionally fragile Fleur Curwen decides she wants excitement in
her boring life she signs up for a Murder Mystery Weekend in the wilds of the English Lake District. She enters a paranormal world where danger and death are common occurrences.’

Lukas



‘Demon slayer Lukas Draco is a loner. He lives by two simple rules: No
emotional entanglements and duty must remain his first priority. His beliefs are challenged when he’s inexplicably drawn to Fleur, a human woman with an unusual psychic aura. Sparks of sexual attraction ignite threatening both his search for the dragon’s egg he buried a thousand years ago and Fleur’s life. Under the cover of a murder mystery weekend an apocalyptic hunt begins’

Xavier

‘Xavier Serpente clenched his manicured nails into his expensive Italian silk trousers, amazed Jasmine dare leave him in mid-conversation. She didn’t realize his importance. He mentally ticked off his attributes. Successful Milanese financier and good looks guaranteed him the undivided attention of most beautiful women. He also possessed the fast car, city penthouse, and lakeside retreat associated with his ilk. The threat of danger, which simmered under the surface of his urbane respectability, was his greatest attraction. All women acquiesced when they fell under the spell of his midnight black gaze. Except Jasmine; she intrigued him. Her potent aura represented a source of usable power. Fleur’s importance to her troubled him. Xavier let his gaze roam over the slender blonde-haired woman across the room. The innocent, vulnerable aura she projected didn’t fascinate his jaded palate.’

The Revenge Masquerade -Sunday Snippet – The Dragon Legacy #2-

In celebration of finishing my second book in ‘The Dragon Legacy’ series I’m posting a snippet today.

‘The Revenge Masquerade’ set in Italy features Jasmine the witch and Zane the wolf shifter.

 Revenge 2

Sunday Snippet – The Revenge Masquerade

Odd behaviour for a dog even a supernatural one was her last rational thought as the violent pain blurred the line between reality and fantasy and pushed her over the edge into nothingness…

Where was she? The expensively furnished room looked vaguely familiar but Jasmine didn’t know why. The thump and echo of beating drums filled her senses and made her head hurt. She couldn’t concentrate but there was no clue to the source of her discomfort. A sudden movement in her peripheral vision drew her gaze, the noise and pain faded as the scene unfolded and absorbed her.

A woman she recognised leaned against a large table and stared at the stranger opposite; a tall dark haired woman lithe and expensively dressed in a white silk creation. The stranger took a step forward an obvious invasion of the first woman’s personal space. Jasmine noted the aggressive gesture and raised voices. White silk woman spoke in a heavily accented voice her speech difficult to decipher. The other voice lighter was Larna’s, the room’s familiarity fell into place.

“I can’t help you I don’t know where the dragon lord is.”Larna rigid body belied her slightly bored tone.

The stranger backed away and vanished. Jasmine blinked and scanned the immediate area for any trace of the woman. Nothing, in her place swayed a snake like creature. Her assumption that white silk woman transformed into the serpent the only logical explanation. Jasmine’s sharp nails pinched her bare arm ‘ouch’ the nail marks visible against her pale skin but the snake remained this nightmare was real.

The creature spat venom at Larna poised to strike at the diminutive woman. She drew a sword and struck out at the monster. Unaffected it coiled round Larna’s upper body and pinned her up against the wall. Venom like droplets dripped from its open mouth onto her face and mouth as she struggled against the snake’s hold. The death like grip relaxed. Larna jerked like a marionette .The snake disappeared.

The dark haired woman raised her hand. Larna’s jerky steps propelled her towards the centre of the vast room. The woman lowered her hand. Larna hit the floor hard like a discarded puppet devoid of human reactions. Satisfied the woman slashed the air with random hand movements and the furniture and ornaments collided and smashed before crashing to the ground damaged like Larna… The images receded and only darkness remained…

The pain melted away too tired to think Jasmine drifted into unconsciousness.’
