About Song of the Storm Dragon:

The Storm is coming! The hegemony of Sylakia has been broken and freedom won, but at a shattering cost. Laid low by the vile Shapeshifter pox and Thoralian’s wiles, can Aranya rise again? For war sweeps Herimor at the touch of the Marshal’s evil claws, and he will stop at nothing to possess the ultimate power.

Now, the race is on to find the First Egg of the Ancient Dragons. Accompanied by her friends Zuziana and Ardan, and the magnificent Land Dragon Leandrial, the Star Dragoness must dive deep in her new quest. Cross the uncrossable Rift-Storm to Herimor. Stop Thoralian. Crush his ambitions. Only then will she be able to save her beloved Dragons.

Yet profound Dragon lore enshrouds her purposes. History beckons. What are the secrets of the powerful Dragonfriend and the tiny, lost Pygmy Dragoness? Why did the Dragons disappear? What became of the powerful Dragons of yore?

Arise, o Storm Dragoness! She is legend. She is the whisper of starlight upon Dragon scales. She is Aranya, and this is her song. The Song of the Storm Dragon.

Dragonsoul release!

I'm pleased to announce the release today of Dragonsoul, the third volume in my bestselling Dragonfriend series, on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.

Here's the blurb: 

Stricken. Dying. Laid low by the accursed Dragon Haters, Hualiama must confront the greatest powers of the age as Dramagon’s disciples encircle the ultimate prize–her. A girl born of fire, raised by Dragons and imbued with the terrible, corrupting power of ruzal. 

Now, portents fill the sky. Legendary armies fly to war. The prophesied comet crashes into the Island-World, bearing the spirit of a malevolent Ancient Dragoness, Numistar Winterborn. She will obliterate any that seek to thwart her ambitions–all the armies of Men and Dragons, the monstrous war-machine of Shinzen, Warlord of the Giants, and most especially, Hualiama and Grandion, the Tourmaline Dragon.

Epic powers collide in the worlds above and below the clouds. Can Hualiama forge a path, a new way, as the first Shapeshifter Dragoness? Can her forbidden love for Grandion flower amidst the smoke and ruin of war?

Yet she dances over Islands, forging a fate inimical to all evil. For this she was born. First of her kind. Heart of flame. Shapeshifter Dragon. Dragonsoul.

Purchase: Grab your next awesome Dragonride here!

Series note: Dragonsoul is the third book in the Dragonfriend series. The fourth book, Dragonstar is planned for release in early 2017. Dragonfriend is an epic fantasy series for Young Adult and older readers, set in the same world as Aranya and The Pygmy Dragon. Mighty dragons and unforgettable adventure await in a unique world above the clouds!

The Countess Intrigue (New release, Regency Romance)

Today I'm delighted to play host to Wendy May Andrews with her new release, The Countess IntrigueEngaged to a rumored murderer – what’s a lady to do?

For a little taster, read on ...

The Countess Intrigue
By: Wendy May Andrews

The Countess Intrigue is a 60,000 word sweet, regency romance with a thread of suspense. It is a standalone sequel to The Duke Conspiracy.

During her second Season, Lady Elizabeth Castleton is found in a compromising situation with Lord Justice Sinclair, the Earl of Heath. Despite her attraction to him, she is dismayed to find herself betrothed to the man who is rumored to have killed his first wife. Her parents refuse to lend credence to the rumors, so she is soon married and on the way to her husband’s estate.

She cannot decide what to make of the handsome earl but after an attempt is made on her life, Elizabeth is terrified that history is about to repeat itself. She determines to find out once and for all if she is married to a murder.

Can she stay alive long enough to find her happily ever after?

Brief Excerpt:

The evening had already been harrowing with the abduction of her dearest friend from that very ballroom mere moments earlier, but it already felt like eons. After she had left it in the Duke of Wrentham’s hands there had been nothing she could do to help. She had no desire to stand about wringing her hands so she was making every effort to remain calm, keeping up appearances in order to prevent Rose’s absence from becoming common knowledge, in an effort to preserve her reputation. The last thing Elizabeth needed was to be seen conversing with the controversial earl. But despite every instinct shrieking for her to leave the man’s presence on the instant, she forced herself to meet his eye as she bade him good night.

His handsome face always made her blink. Well defined, with a sharp jaw and angular cheekbones. His skin looked smooth, as though he had just left the ministrations of his valet. His wide set eyes were a unique color, somewhere between blue and green, and leant an air of watchful intelligence to his beauty. She wondered if he found it amusing to be constantly faced with wide-eyed women or if he had become immune to it. Perhaps he took it as his due, Elizabeth thought absently, before she refocused her attention. She ought to be keeping her wits about her. Exhaustion from the evening’s turmoil was dulling her senses.


About the Author:

She has been writing for almost as long but hasn’t been sharing those stories with anyone but her mother until recently. Wendy lives in Toronto with her own real-life hero.
