Amazon Link for Dragon’s Mate

Waiting for the Amazon pre-order link for Dragon’s Mate? it’s live now!

Dragon's Mate, book 4 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeDragon shifter Hadrian has always thought a sweet mortal maiden would suit him best, so is astonished when the spark of the firestorm leads him to a warrior Swan Maiden—and one intent upon killing him. He doesn’t care if the firestorm is faked or not—the spark has led him to a fierce and alluring woman who claims his heart immediately. Rania hates dragons above all other creatures and would willingly sacrifice the Pyr to Maeve—even though Hadrian and his firestorm are almost powerful enough to make her forget her own convictions. Hadrian needs her help and promises to make the effort worth her while—Rania finds his arguments persuasive but fears she’s been beguiled by his potent touch? When Maeve catches them together in the realm of the Dark Fae, only trust and teamwork can see them both saved. Will Rania believe in their shared destiny and the promise of the firestorm in time?

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeDragon shifter and Pyr warrior Kristofer follows the spark of his firestorm into Maeve’s dark realm, only to discover that it’s an illusion and a trap, not his firestorm at all. The fake mate who lures him into Fae is another species threatened by Maeve – Brianna is a Valkyrie, whose sister has been imprisoned by the dark queen. Brianna has to collect a Pyr soul to save her sister, but Kristofer doesn’t intend to die just yet. Trapped by Maeve, Kristofer and Brianna reluctantly join forces to save her sister—even when they discover that their skills are complementary, they know that there can be no future between a mortal Pyr and an immortal collector of souls. How much will either surrender to triumph over Maeve? And what will they do when the firestorm sparks in truth?

Dragonfire in Wide Distribution – and Kiss of Fire is FREE!

Kiss of Fire, book one of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances featuring dragon shifter heroes by Deborah Cooke, is free for a limited time

At the end of September, the Dragonfire Novels came out of KDP Select, which means that they’re available at all portals again (not just Amazon). I’ve also made Kiss of Fire a free series starter at all portals. This is a great time to meet the Pyr!

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne kiss can change the course of destiny…

When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.

“Cooke, a.k.a. bestseller Claire Delacroix, dips into the paranormal realm with her sizzling new Dragonfire series…Efficient plotting moves the story at a brisk pace and paves the way for more exciting battles to come.”—Romantic Times

Amazon Pre-Order for Dragon’s Heart

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeYesterday, Amazon extended the pre-order period available to indies from 90 days to 360. Woo HOO! I listed Dragon’s Heart right away, so you can order your copy at Amazon if that’s your portal of choice.

Dragon shifter Rhys follows the spark of the firestorm to his destined mate. He finds a selkie in distress, and is determined to defend her against Maeve’s plan, whether the firestorm is genuine or not. But how will he protect Lila when he can’t follow her into the ocean’s depths—yet Maeve and the Dark Fae can? Lila fears that Rhys is like all other men and just wants to control her—she’s vowed to never repeat that mistake again, but the firestorm’s power undermines everything she believes to be true. Could Rhys be Maeve’s pawn? How will Lila choose between her own kind and the dragon shifter who imperils himself to see her safe, even when out of his element?

Back in Wide Distribution

Coven of Mercy, a vampire romance and short story by Deborah CookeSome books have come out of KDP Select and are back in wide distribution.

An Elegy for Melusine is one of them. This is a retelling of a medieval fairy tale and also linked to the DragonFate series – Mel and the ghost Raymond are characters in that series.

Coven of Mercy is a short story, also available at all portals again. This story introduces Micah and Rosemary, as well as the Coven of Mercy itself. They all appear in DragonFate, too.

Beguiled, a collection of short stories, is available in wide distribution again. It had to be taken down because two of the stories included in it were enrolled in KDP Select.

Changing DragonFate Publication Dates

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’ve moved the publication dates for the first three DragonFate novels.

In writing and publishing circles, there’s a lot of discussion about rapid release schedules, i.e. publishing linked books in rapid succession. While I think this is a good idea, it’s not my preferred way to work. I like to take a break from a given world and then come back to it with fresh eyes for the next book in the series. So, I’m going back to my tried and true, because I think I write better books that way.

Dragon’s Kiss will be published in November instead of October.

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeThis is the last of the halo from Bad Case of Loving You requiring a big revision. You’ll notice that the publication date on this one won’t change until the end of September, but trust me, it’s a November release.

Dragon’s Heart will be published in May.

Dragon’s Mate will be published in October 2020. This date will remain incorrect at Nook until November, as pre-orders can’t be scheduled more than a year in advance at that portal. (I just learned that. Who knew?)

Here be Dragons, the Dragonfire Companion and guide to the paranormal romance series by Deborah CookeOn the upside, some other things can slide into the months in between. For example, Here Be Dragons: The Dragonfire Companion will be published on December 31. The pre-order links are populating now.

I want to put this one up for pre-order at Amazon at the end of September – they only allow 90 day pre-orders – so I’ll do that, and then move the pub date for Dragon’s Kiss. When I move the publication date for Dragon’s Kiss, Amazon will remove my ability to set up pre-orders, so first things first.
