Dragon’s Heart and Pinterest

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeI’m charging along on Dragon’s Heart, which is Rhys and Lila’s book, and having a wonderful time with their story. It’s so interesting to include heroines with powers of their own, and I’m loving the challenge of building out each heroine’s world, history and abilities, then fitting that in with the world of the Pyr. Lila is a selkie with an intriguing past who challenges Rhys’ expectations in so many ways. (It’s good for him to have things shaken up a bit. He likes to think he has everything sorted out, planned and organized.) She’s one of my favorite kinds of characters, a healer who is wounded herself. I think you’ll really enjoy their story!

I’ve also been adding to the Pinterest board for their book, and you can have a peek at my inspiration right here.

I’ve also been working on Sebastian and Sylvia’s story, which will ultimately become a book in its own right – and that has drawn me into the Coven of Mercy, with all of those characters’ stories. I think I’m going to be in the realm of DragonFate for a while!

Have you ordered your copy of Rhys and Lila’s story yet? July 22 isn’t that far away!

Dragonfire Quest is 99¢!

From today through May 30, the Dragonfire Quest boxed set – including the first three full-length Dragonfire novels – is discounted from $9.99US to just 99¢!

Dragonfire Quest, the first Dragonfire digital bundle including Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke Dragonfire Quest is the first digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes the three books that launch 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 Kiss of Fire, dragon shifter Quinn Tyrrell is caught between the firestorm with his destined mate, Sara Keenan, and his hereditary responsibilities as the Smith of the Pyr. But Quinn has learned to be skeptical of his fellow dragon shifters and it’s only when the evil Slayers target Sara that he realizes he needs the help of his own kind. Can pragmatic Sara be persuaded to believe that she’s his destined mate and the foretold Seer of the Pyr? Can Quinn win Sara’s heart before it’s too late for them, their firestorm, and the Pyr?

In Kiss of Fury, Donovan Shea, the dragon shifter assigned to defend scientist Alex Madison from the Slayers who have killed her partner, is surprised by the spark of his own firestorm. Donovan has no interest in commitment, especially one who has nightmares about dragons. All the same, there’s something special about Alex, something that feeds a heat in Donovan beyond that of the firestorm. Can they work together to save her invention, the Green Machine, without surrendering to the firestorm’s demand? If they embrace the promise of a future together, will the Slayers attack Alex again?

Dragonfire Quest, the first Dragonfire digital bundle including Kiss of Fire, Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

In Kiss of Fate, Erik Sorensson, leader of the Pyr, has to confront past failures when he has a second chance at true love. Outspoken and independent Eileen Grosvenor isn’t what Erik expects in a mate, but he admires her creativity and her resilience. Eileen has her doubts about trusting a dragon shifter, but when she’s targeted by Slayers for the treasure she’s claimed, having a good dragon on her side sounds like a plan. Can Erik and Eileen learn to work together to triumph in time—over Slayers, the wounds of the past, and even their own assumptions?

Moving Publication Date

Dragon's Heart, book 3 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeLike so many of you, I’m having trouble concentrating during these unsettling times. That’s affecting my writing and my productivity. As a result, I’ve pushed back the publication date on Dragon’s Heart (the DragonFate Novels #3) to July 22.

If you’ve preordered the book, you’ll probably get a notification from your portal of choice. If you ordered at Amazon, you’ll get two, because the date had to be moved 30 days at a time (instead of just 60 days all at once).

I apologize for the delay, but I know the book will be much better this way.

Here Be Dragons Trade Paperback Edition

I’ve been having some interesting adventures with the print editions of the Dragonfire Novel world guide. I’ll spare you all the fun details, but at this point, I think I’m going to leave it as it is now. The book is published through Amazon and distributing to other outlets from there. This means there won’t be a hardcover edition, unless I get my second wind and go after this project again.

The Barnes & Noble product page for the print edition isn’t linked to the product page for the ebook yet (I’ve asked) and similarly the two product pages are still linking at Amazon (because I asked). Indigo won’t pick up the listing, but the Book Depository should eventually list it on their site.

Dragon’s Kiss Today

Dragon's Kiss, book two of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeHer kiss could be his doom…

When dragon-shifter Kristofer feels his firestorm ignite, he eagerly follows its spark to his destined mate. To his surprise, the heat leads him to a Valkyrie intent on claiming his soul. Even so, Kristofer has never met a woman as alluring as the fierce warrior before him. Trusting in the firestorm, he must convince her to fight with him instead of against him.

Trading the life of a dragon shifter for that of her sister Valkyrie is an easy choice for Bree…until she meets Kristofer. Experience taught her that dragons are evil, but in him she sees a bold and noble warrior. Finding his confidence as irresistible as his touch, Bree fears she is being tricked into abandoning her sister. But how can she take Kristofer’s life when his very presence makes her burn with desire?

When they’re compelled to join forces, Kristofer seizes the chance to convince Bree that they’re stronger together. Yet as a sinister plan unfolds, an ancient dragon is roused from his slumber. With danger closing in, can Kristofer convince Bree to surrender her immortality for their forbidden love? Or will Bree’s distrust of dragons prove justified?

Dragon’s Heart New Sample

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 and practical, and dislikes surprises. When his firestorm sparks in the realm of Fae, he’s sure it’s an illusion and isn’t going to be seduced by a fake destined mate—even if the kiss of that beautiful selkie melts his very soul.

Lila would do anything to save her kind from extinction, even entreat a dragon shifter to join the battle against the Queen of the Fae. But Rhys is unlike any male she’s known before—he’s unmoved by her kiss and even her surrender to the combustible attraction between them. There’s only one way to convince him to fight, and that’s to conceive his son—even though bearing a child will cost Lila everything she holds dear.

Rhys is awed by Lila’s sacrifice and determined to retrieve everything she’s lost—and not just for the sake of their unborn son. As they plunge into unknown realms with only each other to rely upon, will their combined forces be sufficient to triumph—or will they be forced to surrender even more?

Changed Publication Date

Dragon's Kiss, book #2 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah CookeIf you’ve pre-ordered Dragon’s Kiss, you might have received a notification that the publication date has been moved to December 10.

I know that many of you will be disappointed by this, but trust me when I tell you it’s for the best. This book was slippery, possibly because it’s been a while since I wrote a book in the Dragonfire world. I had to work out what would be the same as the Dragonfire novels, what would be different, as well as how the Pyr from the first series would be involved in this new series. I had to figure out Fae, and Valkyries. No matter how well I plan these things, it’s in the writing that I make huge discoveries.

I was sure I had it, then I went to a conference and had so many new ideas that I had to integrate them all. I LOVE how Kristofer and Bree’s book has come together, but I want to make sure it goes out in the world the way it should. I don’t want to rush my editor, my proofreader, my cover artist (for the print edition) or my ARC team. I want you to feel like it was worth the wait to return to the Pyr.

Just two weeks delay. Trust me. 🙂

Read an Excerpt from Dragon’s Kiss

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?
