About Dragon’s Heart

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’m so glad this book is done—and that I love it as much as I do! These books are challenging to write, but very satisfying to complete. What’s the difference between them and the Dragonfire Novels? A few things:

• The heroines have powers of their own.
Bree in Dragon’s Kiss is (was) a Valkyrie who could talk to the dead. Lila in Dragon’s Heart is a selkie who can heal. Rania in Dragon’s Mate is a swan-maiden sworn to (or snared in) the service of the Dark Queen, Maeve.

Ember's Kiss, #9 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookThe inclusion of empowered heroines has been a gradual change: it started with the elemental witches in Ember’s Kiss, Kiss of Danger, Kiss of Darkness and Kiss of Destiny. Chandra in Serpent’s Kiss was a goddess, which took us into new realms, too. This series continues on this trajectory.

• So far, the heroines have also been immortal, while the Pyr are long-lived but mortal. That means world-building and backstory for each of them and their respective worlds. I love this part!

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIt means we visit new realms, too. Damien pursued Petra to Hades in Kiss of Danger, and Chandra took Thorolf into Myth in Serpent’s Kiss. Jorge, the Slayer, was the first to succumb to Maeve’s charms in Firestorm Forever, and now we visit Fae in each book. Bree could have taken Kristofer to Valhalla in Dragon’s Kiss, but chose not to, while Lila and Rhys visit the lost city of the Isle of the Blessed in Dragon’s Heart.

• Maeve, the Dark Queen, has a scheme to eliminate all shifters, so the Pyr and their mates are targets in each book. That gives us a story arc that stretches over the length of the series as well as some fun fight scenes, in and out of Fae. That brings us a huge cast of characters, as the Others (most shifters) are allied in the battle against Maeve, in the hope of ensuring their own survival.

Darkfire Kiss, #7 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke• There’s magick—three different kinds of it.
In this series, we have the earth magick commanded by the Fae, the dragon magick commanded by Embron and Blazion, and the darkfire of the Pyr. We also have a battle for control of all the magick, which is just good fun. We first learned about the unpredictable force of darkfire in Rafferty’s book, Darkfire Kiss, because his grandfather Pwyll was the Cantor who commanded it. It was dissipated in Firestorm Forever, but everyone who can is busily gathering it up again. Which kind of magick will prove to be the most powerful? (I think you can guess.)

Firestorm Forever, #14 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke• Dragons don’t stay put.
The dragons from my other series keep sneaking into DragonFate and you know that I can’t turn down a dragon shifter. The DragonFate warriors include many of those who followed Drake in the Dragon Legion: Kristofer, Rhys, Arach, Balthasar, Alasdair, Hadrian, Theo and Kade. We met them all in Firestorm Forever and I thought that would be plenty of dragons for one series.

But the Pyr who have had their firestorms in Dragonfire keep turning up to help, as well. Of course, Quinn, the Smith of the Pyr (Kiss of Fire), needs to repair their scales and his partner, Sara, continues to receive prophecies about firestorms. Erik, leader of the Pyr (Kiss of Fate) is involved in planning the battle against Maeve. Rafferty, the great romantic of the Pyr, (Darkfire Kiss) can’t resist the lure of a firestorm—or the unexpected spark of darkfire. These three all joined the fight in Dragon’s Kiss, as well as seven lost Pyr, who had been enchanted for 1500 years. Rafferty had mentored Kristofer, which was another reason for him to support the firestorm. In Dragon’s Heart, Donovan and Alex (Kiss of Fury) help Rafferty with the so-called “seven thieves”, along with Marco and Jac (Firestorm Forever). I’ve already heard that Brandon (Ember’s Kiss) and Sloane (Firestorm Forever) are on their way to join the fight, along with their mates and sons.

Kraw's Secret, book six of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances featuring dragon shifter princesses from space by Deborah CookeBut the Pyr aren’t the only dragons muscling into this series. The dragon princes Blazion and Embron, exiled from Incendium, are making trouble on Earth, too. They’re mentioned in the story Kraw’s Secret as part of the history of the Dragons of Incendium. You can count on a dragon shifter princess from space joining the conflict, too, before it’s all done. (Is it a spoiler to tell you that she’ll have a firestorm with one of the Dragonfate Pyr?)

I’m still deciding what to do about Sebastian the vampire and Caleb the Lucan in terms of their stories. They’ll likely get their own books, too, but whether they should be part of DragonFate or standalone PNR novels, I’m not yet sure.

Maeve's Book of Beasts, book 1 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIf you want to know more about Micah, the lead vampire, you can read his story, Coven of Mercy. You might also want to read An Elegy of Melusine, which will tell you the backstory of the bartender, Mel, who vanishes into Fae with the Pyr Theo.

And then there’s the fallen angel who started it all, by stealing Maeve’s Book of Beasts. I’m quite sure he has connections with the angels of the Prometheus Project. He might even have been on a divine quest…

Dragon’s Heart is 110,000 words long, chock full of romance, battles, and fantasy. I love the intersection of all my paranormal worlds. I hope you pick up a copy and that you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it!


Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeHer kiss will rock his world…

Dragon shifter Rhys believes in what he can hold in his talons. A chef with his own restaurant, he is organized, practical, and distrusts surprises. When his firestorm sparks in the realm of Fae, he’s sure it’s an illusion created by the Dark Queen and a trap. Even though he wants a partner and family again more than anything else, Rhys isn’t going to be seduced by a fake destined mate—even if the kiss of that beautiful selkie melts his very soul and is one temptation he can’t resist…

Selkie Lila learned long ago that her independence is her most precious possession. But Rhys challenges everything she believes to be true about mortals—he defends her right to choose, even at his own peril, and that’s more seductive than Lila wants to admit. Is it just a trick to convince her to bear his son? Or is this Pyr warrior as honorable as he appears to be?

When an ancient and evil dragon prince joins forces with the Dark Queen to eliminate both the Pyr and the selkies, Rhys and Lila must work together to save their kinds—and each other. When they plunge into unknown realms with only each other to rely upon, will their combined abilities be enough to triumph—or will they have to surrender more for their unborn son and the chance of a future together?

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.

“Wow, what an innovative and dazzling world Ms. Cooke has built with this new Dragonfire series. Her smooth and precise writing quickly draws the reader in and has you believing it could almost be real… I can’t wait for the next two books.”—Fresh Fiction

Rearranging the Site

Fallen, an urban fantasy romance featuring a fallen angel hero and book one of the Prometheus Project by Deborah CookeWith the publication of Maeve’s Book of Beasts, it’s clear that a lot of my other paranormal heroes are living in the world of Dragonfire. As a result, I’ve created some new tabs and moved some pages onto this site.

You’ll find the Prometheus Project living under the new tab Angels (which are really all Fallen Angels), and Coven of Mercy is living under another new tab called Vampires.

The Prometheus Project is a complete four-book series set in a dystopian future featuring fallen angel heroes, but there’s a dead fallen angel at the beginning of Maeve’s Book of Beasts. I think it’s fair to assume that he has something in common with my future-set angels. That series begins with Fallen – I hope you like Montgomery as much as I do!

Coven of Mercy, a vampire romance and short story by Deborah CookeCoven of Mercy is a short story and vampire romance. Micah, the hero of that story, has a cameo appearance in Maeve’s Book of Beasts, and Sebastian – the vampire and continuing character in DragonFate – is a reluctant member of Micah’s coven.

The Dragonfire Novels, the Prometheus Project and the Dragons of Incendium are moving into Kindle Unlimited this month. Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine (which explains Mel and Raymond’s backstory) are already there.
