DragonFate Covers

Maeve's Book of Beasts, book 1 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThe DragonFate series features the Pyr‘s battle against Maeve, the dark Fae queen who wants to exterminate all species she considers unnatural (because they are half human). We met Maeve in Firestorm Forever and glimpsed her souvenir gallery of species she had already eliminated. In this series, she targets the Pyr and other species in the world – and the Pyr come to the defense of shifters like themselves, led by the spark of the firestorm. What I like about this series is that there are lots of paranormal creatures in the cast, as well as some humans and an opinionated ghost.

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeWhat I like about this series is that the heroines will also have special powers of their own, and this is going to complicate matters with their dragon shifter heroes and destined mates. We’ll see an over-arching romance between Melusine and Theo, one that is complicated both by her special powers and the persistent ghost of her dead husband, Raymond. There will also be another over-arching romance between a very human librarian and a hot vampire who is part of the team battling Maeve. We’ll also explore the origins of the Pyr. This is a big canvas and I’m excited about all my plans and possibilities.

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeMy original scheme was for DragonFate to be four books. The working titles were Hot-Blooded, Spell-Bound, Star-Crossed and Dusted, but I’ve since learned it would be better for discoverability if the titles to include the word Dragon. Donna Grant has also published a dragon shifter book called Hot-Blooded (as well as one called Dragonfire) in the interim, so it’s better to avoid confusion.

I’ve gone with Dragon’s Kiss, Dragon’s Heart and Dragon’s Mate for the first three books. The pre-quel is called Maeve’s Book of Beasts and will launch in August. Dragon’s Kiss will be published in October, followed by Dragon’s Heart in January and Dragon’s Mate in April.

Dragon's Mate, book 4 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne of the things I really like about these covers is that the artist used the colours of each Pyr in his dragon form on his book cover. Kristofer (Dragon’s Kiss) is peridot and silver in his dragon form, and has blond hair and blue eyes in his human form. Rhys (Dragon’s Heart) is garnet and silver in his dragon form, and has dark hair and dark eyes in his human form. Hadrian (Dragon’s Mate) is emerald and silver in his dragon form, and has auburn hair and green eyes in his human form.

Another thing I noticed later which I think is funny – the model chosen by the artist for Rhys on Dragon’s Heart is the same model I chose for Some Like It Hot in the Flatiron Five series. He looks a bit different with his shirt off and a dragon tattoo. I think it’s also possible that the model on Dragon’s Mate is the same one used on Some Guys Have All the Luck, but am not positive about that. This is why so many covers show the models without their faces, but I like to see their eyes.

There is a Pinterest board for the DragonFate series, which is a work-in-progress.

Pre-order links are populating now and will be added to the landing pages for each book as they go live.

Dragonfire Triumph, the fourth Dragonfire digital bundle including Serpent's Kiss and Firestorm Forever of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke Dragonfire Triumph is the fourth and final digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes the books that include the final victory of the Pyr in the Dragon’s Tail Wars between the Pyr, dragon shifters pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, and the evil Slayers, dragon shifters bent on destroying both the Pyr and the humans they protect.

In Serpent’s Kiss, Thorolf is targeted by the Slayer Chen to complete an ancient spell, and caught between love and duty. According to Chandra, his destined mate and a known thief, Thorolf’s partner Viv has lied to him and is allied with Chen. Worse, Chandra insists that the solution lies in Thorolf’s past. Can he trust the firestorm to guide him to the truth, even if it means bonding with a goddess?

In Firestorm Forever, Sloane, the Apothecary of the Pyr, is determined to save humans and the earth from a deadly plague brought into the world by the Slayer, Jorge. His only ally is Samantha, a researcher who hates the Pyr because her son was killed by the virus. When the firestorm sparks between them, can they move beyond physical attraction and their own emotional wounds to work together to save the world? The big finish to the Dragonfire series includes two more firestorms—those of Drake and Marco, the Sleeper—and the combined efforts of all the Pyr to defeat the Slayers forever.

Giveaway Winner

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIn my most recent Dragons & Angels newsletter, there was a giveaway. If you didn’t open your newsletter or you don’t subscribe, you missed a chance to win a signed hardcover copy of Kiss of Fire.

To enter the giveaway, subscribers told me whether they preferred dragon shifter paranormal romances with:

• dragon shifter heroes and heroines with no special powers

• dragon shifter heroes and dragon shifter heroines

• dragon shifter heroes and heroines with powers of their own

• dragon shifter heroines and heroes with powers of their own

Wyvern's Mate, book one of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThere were a lot of replies and different explanations as to why anyone favored a specific one. The results were pretty well scattered, with the possibility of two dragon shifters together being the least popular. One reader pointed out that they would be too much the same then, which sounds quite reasonable.

Of course, I’ve written a few of these structures. The Dragonfire Novels feature dragon shifter heroes and heroines with no special powers. The Dragons of Incendium series features dragon shifter heroines and heroes, some of whom have special powers and some of whom don’t. And DragonFate will feature dragon shifter heroes and heroines with special powers of their own. More about that in next week’s newsletter.

The winner of the signed book was Karin, and it’s on its way to her now.

If you haven’t subscribed to the Dragons & Angels newsletter, you might want to do so before next week’s newsletter. It will include cover reveals for DragonFate.
