Where Sleeping Dragons Lie

Fantastical Press
8

It was in her friend’s rare books shop that Briana Wright first saw Taron Hildebrand, a too-gorgeous-to-be-real twenty-something Englishman dressed for a night at the opera rather than an obscure shop in midtown. Unnerved by his unusual orange-tinted hazel eyes and flustered by his intensity and charm, her initial alarm raises several notches with his immediate interest and offer of an obscene amount of money for the old hand-bound book written in a strange alphabet she had found in her recently deceased grandmother’s collection. Not keen on giving up such an intriguing mystery, she refuses his offer and is surprised when he leaves the shop without even a token fuss.

Briana should have known he would be back, but when Taron claims the book is a family heirloom he’s been searching for and is able to perfectly describe the sole drawing of a skeleton key contained within the book, her initial misgivings quickly turn to excitement when she realizes that she’s on the brink of solving the mystery of the book’s origins.

Unfortunately, she didn’t count on others being just as interested in learning the book’s secrets and that the price she has to pay for that knowledge is having to run for her life. She sure as hell didn’t count on suddenly learning that dragons are real and being dragged into a centuries-long dragon civil war by Taron, one of those dragons shifted into human form that insists she is the key to finally ending their stalemate.

Most of all, she didn’t count on falling in love…

Love, angst, adventure, and a few steamy scenes await you in this first novel in the sequel series to the bestselling Elven King fantasy romance series. 

 

**While it's not necessary to read the prior Elven King series to enjoy this novel, I would highly recommend reading at least Claimed by the Elven King for some back history on a few of the characters that pop up in this novel.** 

 

She only noticed him that first day because of the rain. 

 

Mia Hart knows she shouldn’t get involved, but when she sees a man standing dangerously close to the overflowing banks of a raging creek behind her apartment complex during a heavy downpour, there’s no way she can just ignore him. However, she never expects to be equally drawn to both the beautiful man who introduces himself with the unusual name of Thaylan as well as the mystery of why he has stood vigil over that same spot every day for years.

 

There’s four very good reasons why she has given up on finding love, but when the puzzle of Thaylan soon becomes more important than the mystery of his vigil, can Mia resist their growing attraction knowing that she’s risking something more dangerous than a broken heart, or will a shocking revelation related to Thaylan’s vigil lead to something amazing—or tragic? 

 

Contains mature content and language plus men with pointy ears.

A new shifter romance series from New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Cristina Rayne

**Previously published as #1 Transformation and #2 Revelation**

Kylie Moore has a secret, one she and her adoptive father have carefully guarded for over a decade since the night her parents disappeared. However, when she is randomly attacked one night in her apartment complex's parking lot, that one violent act sets in motion events that reveal not only her long-dormant shifter heritage in the worst possible way, but could also railroad her efforts of finding out what really happened to her parents.

Suddenly finding herself the center of attention among Riverford's shifter clans, Kylie's only hope of navigating such a dangerous minefield of politics and perpetual battles over territory is Hunter, a too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind jaguar shifter that might be her key to gaining insider access to the hidden and secretive shifter society.

Now Kylie must decide whether to integrate more deeply into Hunter's jaguar clan in order to take advantage of this rare opportunity or to run while her secret still remains uncovered. To stay would mean deliberately putting herself in more danger than Kylie may be prepared to handle, especially when Hunter, the person she must rely on, may be hiding something as well.

This book is part of a continuing story line woven throughout the series and is not meant to be read as a standalone.

Contains strong adult content and language.
