It’s August. It’s hot in California– Just the way dragons like it. Today, I’ll be posting fire-blowing excerpts from my Dragonfire series. My second excerpt is from Chosen, the second book in the series.
Thanks for stopping by.
Even good dragons will do bad things for gold.
A thousand years ago, two dragon clans went to war over a cache of gold. To end the war, a sorcerer hid the gold and foretold of the birth of a female bearing the mark of the dragon.
Born with a dragon on her hip, Karis Nordrath is the chosen, and because of the mark she’s been guarded all of her life. According to legend, the location of the gold will be revealed when the chosen is bonded with her dragon mate, but the only dragon that stirs Karis’ fire is bodyguard, Rett Aurumon.
Rett left the Fire Mountains to follow a wanderlust he couldn’t explain until he laid eyes on Karis. Hired as her bodyguard, Rett doesn’t know if his true role is protector or mate. He doesn’t know Karis is the chosen, but he knows she’s the one.
TOP PICK Night Owl Reviews
I loved this dragon love book. It’s definitely a spicy top pick!
Rett flew high. He wanted the advantage of being above them. In the moonlight he saw the two dragons, fast moving, their wings flashing in the moonlight. Spewing fire, they attacked him from below.
Instead of flying higher, Rett folded his wings and dove straight at them. The dragons split to either side to attack his flank. Spewing flames, they rushed him. Rett snapped his wings open. The leading edge of his armored wings caught each dragon in the head.
Stunned, the dragons flapped their wings to stay aloft. Rett performed a roll, flapped his wings for speed, and charged. With his wings spread wide, he rammed one dragon, breaking his adversary’s wing. In a practiced maneuver, he spun and slammed into the second dragon.
The two dragons had participated in Karis’ abduction and Rett felt no sympathy for them as they spiraled toward the ground.
Rett soared high and begin to circle the area to look for Karis. Whoever had her had a good head start, and Rett had no idea in which direction the abductors had flown. Anger burned through him at the dragons responsible and at himself for letting down his guard. He forced back the anger and focused.
