About DragonFate

Here be Dragons, the Dragonfire Companion and guide to the paranormal romance series by Deborah CookeI’ve been sketching out my plans for DragonFate and thought you might like an update. I’ve had this series mapped out in my imagination for years, and it’s fun to be finally working on it. I’m making notes and sketches, and have begun to write some of the early schemes. Once the groundwork is done, the rest of the writing should proceed quite quickly. A big part of what’s been going on this year has been getting all of Dragonfire back into my head. I’ve been going through the books in that series and making notes, then filling out the records for Here Be Dragons: The Dragonfire Companion. I’ve also been compiling family trees for the Pyr.

As this series has taken shape, I’ve realized that it’s going to be a shorter and more tightly linked series of books. Each book will include a firestorm and a primary romance, but there will be more overlapping threads and ongoing stories that continue from book to book. Because of that, I know you’ll want to be able to go from one to the next fairly quickly. So, I’ve put off the publication date for book one, in order to have most or all of the books written before publication begins. I’m hoping to launch in the summer of 2019, and might enroll the series in Kindle Unlimited for 90 days before going into wide distribution. In the meantime, I’m going to share some of those early scenes with you.

Coastal Magic Reader Conference 2019On the 23rd, you’ll be able to read the first of those early scenes. It’s appearing as a guest post and short story on another blog (promoting the authors attending Coastal Magic 2019 – which includes me!) so stop back here for a link on the 23rd.

I’ll share a second scene with you in November, right here on the blog.

Darkfire Kiss Today!

Today’s the day for the new edition of Rafferty and Melissa’s book, Darkfire Kiss!

Darkfire Kiss, #7 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeFor one woman, he will risk more than his life…

Rafferty Powell has exchanged challenge coins with his arch-nemesis Magnus Montmorency, and their next battle will be their last. But Rafferty never expected to meet a woman whose desire for Magnus’ downfall matches his own—and whose presence sparks Rafferty’s long-awaited firestorm.

Since facing her own mortality, investigative reporter Melissa Smith has resolved to live without fear. She’s determined to make the seemingly untouchable Magnus pay for his role in ending her friend’s life – no matter the price to herself.

When her quest entwines with Rafferty’s, Melissa finds herself risking more than she ever thought possible. Because the heat between them unleashes the darkfire—an awesome force of Pyr legend, one that won’t be sated until everything they know has been tested and remade.

“Deborah Cooke’s Dragonfire novels are impossible to put down. DARKFIRE KISS is no exception. I dare any reader to skim any part of this terrific story!”—Romance Reviews Today

Whisper Kiss, #6 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeOne man’s mission ignites one woman’s fire…

Niall Talbot has volunteered to hunt down and destroy all the remaining shadow dragons – who were weakened by the destruction of the Dragon’s Blood Elixir – before they can wreak more havoc. Among them is his dead twin brother, making Niall’s mission not only dangerous but personal.

Tattoo artist Rox believes the world is a canvas to be made more beautiful.

Rox’s quirky characteristics and beauty and Niall’s no nonsense outlook on life as well as his dedication just drew me into this wonderful but often dangerous world of the Pyr and I loved every single scene. Bursting with emotions, passion, and even a real fire or four, I count myself lucky not to have spontaneously combusted! Don’t miss this sizzling addition to Deborah Cooke’s DRAGONFIRE series – it is marvelous!”—Romance Junkies

Winter Kiss Today!

Winter Kiss, #4 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeToday’s the day for the new edition of Delaney and Ginger’s book, Winter Kiss!

This is, btw, the only new edition with a significant difference from the original edition. There was a scene deleted from the prologue in the original published version of this book, but it shows Magnus in action and I like it. It’s been on my site as a free read, but now it’s also back in the prologue of the book. It gives some insight into Melissa’s motivation in Darkfire Kiss. You can find it right here.

One kiss can melt his frozen heart…

The mysterious Dragon’s Blood Elixir gives immortality to Magnus, the Pyr’s greatest enemy, and his minions. The Pyr must destroy this source of power, and outcast Delaney vows to complete the quest himself. Delaney was exiled because of his dangerous impulses, and success in eliminating the Elixir will either redeem him or end his suffering.

But his plans don’t take into account his sudden firestorm – or fiery Ginger Sinclair. The firestorm revitalizes Delaney, restoring him to his old self. And when Ginger learns about Delaney’s mission, she realizes she cannot resist a strong man with a noble agenda.

“A beautiful and emotionally gripping fourth novel, WINTER KISS is compelling and will keep readers riveted in their seats and breathing a happy sigh at the love shared between Delaney and Ginger. . . .Sizzling-hot love scenes and explosive emotions make WINTER KISS a must read!”—Romance Junkies

Ember’s Kiss Pre-Order

Links are populating! The pre-order for Ember’s Kiss is live at Amazon, which I thought was the last portal needing an upload. I’ve been so busy getting the print editions ready to go – and the hardcover collector’s editions – that I forgot to upload it to Nook. So, I’ll do that this morning and it will go live soon. In the meantime, here are all the other pre-order links! There’s an excerpt on the page for the book.

I love this one—not only is Brandon a wonderful sexy outsider from the Pyr, but Liz is the first witch to appear in the series. They both shake things up a bit. 🙂

Ember's Kiss, #9 of the Dragonfire Novels, a series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookOnly one woman can persuade him to embrace his powers.

Brandon Merrick is determined to banish his shifter nature forever. The charismatic tattooed surfer is on the cusp of the ultimate challenge – to prove himself on the whitecaps of Hawaii and secure his future as a pro surfer. But his dragon isn’t prepared to be tamed so easily…

One look at marine biologist Liz Barrett ignites the spark of the firestorm: Liz is his destined mate and his chance for happiness. While Brandon sees their first night together as just the beginning, his dragon seizes the upper hand. Awakening in the company of a raging dragon challenges Liz’s ability to believe her own eyes. Can Brandon accept his inner beast in time to make it work with Liz?

Neither one realizes that Brandon is caught in an ancient Slayer‘s scheme to enslave him. When the deadly plot ignites, the very island will be at risk…and Brandon and his mate could be the ultimate sacrifice.

“Dodging your birthright is the theme of the latest terrific Dragonfire novel, as both the hero and heroine attempt to deny their bloodlines. Cooke introduces readers to the world of witches, opening up other intriguing plot possibilities. Ember’s Kiss is filled with passion and the power of self-discovery — another Cooke classic!”—Romantic Times Book Review
