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 first excerpt is from Captured, the first book in the series.
Welcome to the party
The tyrant Targus has a new pet dragon.
Captured and tossed in an aviary, Zira discovers she is Targus’s new pet. The key to her escape lies with her keeper, a hunky human with a gentle touch who has no idea she can shift.
To please his master, Dragon Keeper Laros must make the new dragon fly. Zira shifts to her human form to seduce her keeper, convincing Laros his midnight visitor is his reward.
When the nights are Dragonfire hot, keeper and dragon may bond in a way neither of them expects.
PRAISE FOR CAPTURED
“This is one very hot and enchanting story, with danger and action, and the slow seduction of the senses that Ms. McCall does so very well.”
— Foxglove, Whipped Cream Reviews
Escape. She yearned for freedom and home. Rearing up on her hind legs, she opened her wings with a snap. Using her powerful wings and legs, she launched into the air. She soared to the top of the aviary and circled, each loop providing a view of the surrounding terrain. If she left in the dead of night, she’d fly high and head for the Fire Mountains.
She was ready to land and nap beneath the trees when she saw a group of people on the palace balcony. She flew toward them and spotted Targus in a bright blue coat with shiny medals. Zira circled, then flew straight toward him. Taking a deep breath, she held it until she was close to the balcony, then she spewed a stream of hot fire. The flame shot out and hit the barrier, flaring back.
Horrified, the audience on the balcony threw up their hands to shield their faces and ran for cover. Only Targus remained standing. He hadn’t so much as flinched. One of these days he wouldn’t have a barrier to protect him and he’d regret the day he snared a dragon.
