January Love Bites Free Read

January Shifter Free Read

I’ve signed up for a fun multi-author promotion this year, which means that you’ll have a free shifter romance to download each month. There are a lot of authors participating and I hope you find some new reads. (And actually, when you click through to the landing page, there are FOUR books you can download this month, all paranormal romances. I’ve included the shifter romance here.)


Can an alpha wolf catch a thief who bends the laws of physics? And if he does, will she tame him? The hunt is on.

Wolf shifter and billionaire Arek Varg runs a security company specializing in bodyguards, extraction teams, and hostage rescue. He’s also the alpha of all the Western Packs and uses his ancient Odin medallion to connect with his packs’ magic and lead his wolves as a cohesive unit. With war brewing between the four major shifter coalitions, the last thing he needs is a mysterious woman stealing his relic. He’ll use all of his resources to hunt her down.

And if he does, will she tame him?

Former museum curator Dr. Laney Marconi was the darling of the magical artifacts’ academic world until she fell from grace due to a scandal based on false accusations. She now reclaims stolen items for insurance companies, using her witch powers that manipulate parallel dimensions. When a routine case turns into a disaster of epic proportions, she needs to evade the sexy shifter she stole from long enough to figure out who set her up.

The hunt is on.

But with Arek hot on her heels, Laney is forced to decide if salvaging the few crumbs left of her good reputation is worth teaming up with the alpha wolf whose ice-blue gaze pierces her shields while he demands nothing less than her soul.

Dragon’s Heart in Spanish

Rhys and Lila’s book is now available in a neutral Latin American Spanish translation!

Dragon's Heart, book three of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke, Spanish edition

Su beso hará estremecer su mundo…

El dragón cambiaformas Rhys cree únicamente en lo que puede sostener en sus garras. Un chef con su propio restaurante, es organizado, práctico, y desconfía de las sorpresas. Cuando su tormenta de fuego se enciende en el reino de las hadas, se convence de que es una ilusión creada por la Reina Oscura y, por lo tanto, una trampa. A pesar de querer una pareja y una familia de nuevo más que nada, Rhys no está dispuesto a ser seducido por una falsa pareja destinada… aún si el beso de esa hermosa selkie derrite su alma desde su núcleo y resulta una tentación imposible de resistir…

La selkie Lila aprendió mucho tiempo atrás que su independencia era su más preciada posesión. Pero Rhys llega para desafiar todo lo que ella cree sobre los mortales: él defiende su derecho a elegir, aún a costa de su propio bienestar, y eso es más seductor de lo que Lila está dispuesta a admitir. ¿Será solo un truco para convencerla de engendrar a su hijo? ¿O acaso aquel guerrero Pyr es tan honorable como aparenta?

Cuando un malvado y ancestral príncipe dragón une fuerzas con la Reina Oscura para eliminar tanto a los Pyr como a los selkies, Rhys y Lila deben trabajar juntos para salvar a sus especies… y a ellos mismos. Al sumergirse en reinos desconocidos sin nadie más en quién confiar más que en ellos, ¿serán suficientes sus habilidades combinadas para triunfar… o tendrán que renunciar a algo más que un hijo aún por nacer y la posibilidad de un futuro juntos?

The two reluctantly join forces but when an ancient foe stirs, how will Bree choose between her immortality and her unexpected love for this dragon shifter?

The Lair

Dragons First Boxed Set of three paranormal romance series starters by Deborah Cooke

Several of the portals have added a feature for author/publishers – they’ve made it possible to create discount codes that can be shared privately (instead of just discounting a given book for everyone who visits the landing page.) I’m trying these out with Dragons First – the versions of that bundle sold at KOBO, Nook, GooglePlay and Smashwords have discount codes to continue the series.

Since many of you will already have these series starters and thus not be buying the bundle, I’m making the discount codes available to newsletter subscribers under the new menu tab, The Lair. (See it over there at the right?) The password is in my monthly newsletter – it will be included every month. The codes I’ve set up are good through the end of 2022.

If you haven’t subscribed to my PNR newsletter yet, this might be the perfect time to do so.

Dragons First goes on sale at the end of this month. It’s just 99cents on pre-order for three complete dragon shifter romance series starters.

The Dragon Diaries in Wider Distribution

Last week, I told you about the last of the subsidiary rights for the Dragon Diaries reverting to me. I’ve since published the first two books at more retailers, and I’ve lowered the price on the ebooks. I will do a bundle in 2022 and make it available in print, too, in one volume.

Here’s the sereis with shiny new buy links! Click on a cover to go to the book’s landing page and read an excerpt.


Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke

Zoë is the Wyvern of the Pyr—the one female dragon shape shifter with special powers.  But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr, and her powers are AWOL. Worse, there’s no reference book to consult, and the last Wyvern is dead….

Everything changes when Zoë’s best friend is bullied and Zoë reacts. Before she can blink twice, her inner dragon is loose, and she’s suspended from school and headed to a shape shifter boot camp with guys she’s known all her life. But soon she’s doubting her powers—and even some of her friendships.

Zoë quickly realizes she has to master her powers yesterday—there’s danger ahead and boot camp is a trap. A secretive group, the Mages, want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line—unless Zoë and her friends can solve the riddle and work together to save their own kind…


Zoë is a wonderful heroine—smart, strong and sympathetic. Bring on book two!

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

Zoë Sorensson yearns to come into her powers as the only female dragon shifter. But being part of two worlds is more complicated than she expected. It’s bad enough that she’s the target of the Mages’ plan to eliminate all shifters—she also has to hide her true nature from her best friend Meagan, a human. For her sixteenth birthday, all Zoë wants is one normal day, including a tattoo and a chance to see hot rocker Jared.

Instead, the Pyr throw her a birthday party but ban Meagan from attendance, putting Zoë in a tight spot. Things get even worse when Zoë is invited to the popular kids’ Halloween party and Meagan’s left out. Zoë knows the party is a trap laid by the host, an apprentice Mage. When Meagan gets a last-minute invite, Zoë must save the day—and her best friend—without revealing her fire-breathing secrets…


Sure to become a classic!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and Zoë Sorensson’s love life is heating up. Cute, loyal, and understanding, wolf shifter Derek is pretty much the perfect guy. He likes Zoë, and he knows what it’s like to have to keep a secret. Yet, Zoë can’t help but wish it was rebel rocker Jared asking her to the Valentine’s dance instead. But Jared’s too busy playing hot and cold with her heart, calling Zoë his dragon girl one minute and then taking special interest in her best friend the next.

Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke

Zoë is just about ready to breathe fire, especially once she uncovers a new threat that targets her friends. Although Zoë thought the Mages were defeated, they’re back and have invoked an old spell to give them new power—they plan to eliminate all shape shifters on the night of the big dance. Now, Zoë must lead an alliance of young shifters to battle the Mages and figure out exactly what—and who—she wants, before it all goes up in smoke…


I have been a huge fan of Deborah Cooke for many years. When a new release comes across my path, I truly do a happy dance. Cooke has lived up to her previous work with BLAZING THE TRAIL. I loved how Zoe deals with the everyday issues in front of her while trying to save the world with the Pyr and fellow shifters.

Exciting News about the Dragon Diaries

Flying Blind, book #1 of the Dragon Diaries series of paranormal YA novels by Deborah Cooke
1. Flying Blind

I’m very happy to share the news that all of the rights to the Dragon Diaries have reverted to me. Phew! That took a while. Three years ago, most of the rights to this YA trilogy reverted to me, but English Commonwealth rights for the first two books had been licensed to another publisher and that deal was still in place. Those rights have now reverted, so all the rights are mine again. (Yay!)

You might remember that I licensed the original cover art from the artist, so that my editions would look similar to the original editions – and people wouldn’t think they were new books. Here’s a blog post about that.

Winging It, book #2 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke
2. Winging It

What does this mean? Well, first of all, I’ve made my ebook editions of Flying Blind and Winging It available in all geographic regions (geos) at Apple, Amazon and KOBO.

Secondly, I can make those books available via all my usual portals and distributors—some of them allow less control over geographic territories, so I couldn’t publish my editions there in case they infringed on the subrights deal. I’ll do that this week.

Thirdly, I’ve asked Amazon to link my ebook editions with the print editions from the other publishers. They retain the right to sell their existing print stock, which is standard and customary, so the books might as well be linked. There are also reviews on the print editions from their ebook editions, so my Amazon product pages will look a little better with more reviews.

Blazing the Trail, #3 of the Dragon Diaries YA trilogy by Deborah Cooke
3. Blazing the Trail

There seems to be a lot of print stock available so I’m not going to rush in to make print editions of these books myself. I’m thinking that next year, I may do a series bundle and make that available in trade paperback. If you have feelings either way about this, please let me know.

Finally, it means I can think about revisiting those characters and adding to their stories. I never add to works to which I don’t hold all of the rights – I learned my lesson about that – so having these books back means I can think about Jared and Zoë again. This gives me joy.

I’ll post when all the links are live, just so you know.

And please join me in a happy dance today!

Dragonfire: The Complete Series Available Today!

Today’s the day! Dragonfire is available in one BIG digital bundle!


Dragonfire: The Complete Series Boxed Set of pararnormal romances by Deborah Cooke

Only one kind of dragon will survive the Dragon’s Tail Wars…

In the final battle between the dragon shifters known as the Pyr and their enemies, the dragon shifters known as the Slayers, only one kind can survive. The Pyr are pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, including their destined mates. The Slayers are bent on exterminating humans from the face of the planet. When dragons soar into battle, each Pyr has his role to play, but when the firestorm sparks, his loyalties are divided. The firestorm – indicating the presence of his fated mate and the one woman who ban bear his son – snares each Pyr between his responsibility to his own kind, his burning need to defend his mate, and the battle against Slayers who inevitably attack.

The war begins with Kiss of Fire, when the Smith of the Pyr, Quinn, follows the heat of the firestorm to his mate, Sara—can he defend her alone or will he have to rejoin the Pyr he so distrusts? In Kiss of Fury, Donovan is assigned to protect a scientist afraid of dragons—can he resist Alex, the mate he never wanted, when she steals his heart? In Kiss of Fate, Erik, the leader of the Pyr, has an unexpected second chance with his fated mate—can he and Eileen heal the wounds of the past to create a future together while battling Erik’s old foe?

In Winter Kiss, Delaney is determined to destroy the Dragon’s Blood Elixir that gives the Slayers immortality, regardless of the cost to himself—but when his fiery mate, Ginger, is at risk, he has to survive to ensure her safety. In the short story, Harmonia’s Kiss, Drake and the Dragon Legion hunt an old evil in their ancient homeland. In Whisper Kiss, Niall is battling his twin brother when his firestorm sparks with tattoo artist Rox—can these two opposites overcome their differences to defeat the Slayers? In Darkfire Kiss, Rafferty and his mate, Melissa, set out to destroy the Slayers‘ hidden Academy despite the odds against them—can their firestorm ever be satisfied, given Melissa’s past?

In Flashfire, outcast and illusionist Lorenzo has rejected his Pyr legacy, until photographer Cassie is at risk—can he embrace his surrendered powers to save his firestorm and her? In Ember’s Kiss, pro surfer Brandon wants nothing to do with dragons or the Pyr—can his destined mate, Liz, an elemental witch, help him overcome the past when he’s caught in a Slayers spell? In the three Dragon Legion novellas, Kiss of Danger, Kiss of Darkness and Kiss of Destiny, the darkfire crystal sweeps Drake and the Dragon Legion into the past—can these warriors make their second chances at love count with the elemental witches who are their mates?

In Serpent’s Kiss, Thorolf is targeted and enchanted by Slayers determined to snatch victory in the last moments of the Dragon’s Tail Wars—can his mysterious mate, a shapeshifter in her own right, guide him through the maze between myth and reality to fulfill his destiny? In Firestorm Forever, Sloane, the Apothecary of the Pyr, has to heal the world after a deadly virus is brought from the ancient world by Slayers and released on the world—can he persuade upon his destined mate, Samantha, a medical researcher, whose only son was killed by the virus, to work alongside the Pyr?

New Geos for KOBO Plus

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

I posted this on my main blog last week, so apologies if you’re seeing it twice. 🙂 This version has different book covers.

KOBO Plus is a reader subscription program, a lot like Kindle Unlimited. Readers subscribe to the service and authors are paid by pages read. The big difference for authors is that books don’t have to be available exclusively at KOBO in order to be enrolled in the program.

Another difference is that KOBO rolls out this program by geographic territory. The original launch was for readers in the Netherlands, and it expanded to Belgium and to Canada. In April, KOBO Plus launched in Portugal. So far this month, KOBO Plus has launched in France, Italy, Australia and New Zealand.

I enroll my series starters and reader funnels in KOBO Plus to be available in all territories. When the program expands into a new geo, they’re immediately available to readers there. This includes Just One Fake Date, Just One Snowbound Night, Kiss of Fire, Fallen and Wyvern’s Mate.

Fallen, an urban fantasy romance featuring a fallen angel hero and book one of the Prometheus Project by Deborah Cooke

I add the other books incrementally. Typically, KOBO Plus has a free trial period for readers in a new geo. This is great for readers, but not so great for authors, since there are no page reads paid in that period. So, I add my books to the program in that geo 90 days after the launch, or sometimes a bit later. Yesterday, I remembered to add my list to Portugal (I doubt there were a lot of readers there desperately awaiting my English content.)

I will make my books available to KOBO Plus in Australia, New Zealand, France and Italy in February.

Here’s the landing page for KOBO Plus for Canada. If it’s like other KOBO links, it will automatically redirect for your territory.
