He knew for certain that she belonged forever in his arms, just as he knew she didn’t realize it yet.” 

– Portrait of His Obsession


Not all obsessions are bad.


Lord Harrison, Earl of Wrotham, once lived from pleasure to pleasure—until the night he set eyes on his best friend’s sister. Surely the beautiful temptress who danced under the moonlight couldn’t be the same prim and proper lady of rumor. Instantly smitten, he sets out to tame his roguish ways, molding himself into the kind of man he is sure will please her. Only then will he get close enough to discover if she has a wild soul like his own, waiting to be released from the constraints of society.


Knowing the earl’s reputation as a scoundrel, Elizabeth Blakeney has no choice but to ignore the man's advances…until her artist brother reveals an unflattering picture he has painted of her. It seems only the seductive earl can see beyond the likeness to the woman she longs to be. Should she rebel against society and the damning portrait, throwing caution to the wind? Or should she remain as she appears, as reserved and unfeeling as paint on canvas?

A Qurilixen World Novella

The Qurilixen World is an extensive collection of paranormal, fantasy, and science fiction romance novels by award-winning author, Michelle M. Pillow, and includes several series installments: Dragon Lords, Lords of the Var, Space Lords, Captured by a Dragon-shifter, Galaxy Alien Mail Order Brides, Dynasty Lords, Qurilixen Lords, and more.

Grier’s fiery passion for Salena might be everything his dragon ever wanted but loving her might just lead to the destruction of everything he’s trying to save.


From NY Times & USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow, the much anticipated dragon shapeshifter romance, Qurilixen Lords!


With all that is happening in his land, the upcoming shifter mating ceremony is the least of Grier’s concerns. Even though he is heir prince of the dragonshifters, he doesn’t have the authority needed to help the humans stranded in dragon territory, nor can he banish those who ruthlessly control them. Yet honor demands he finds an opportunity to intervene, and he hopes that doing so won’t start a war the shifters can’t win. Discovering his destined mate couldn’t have come at a worse time.


Salena knows what it is like to be a pawn of the Federation. They might have kidnapped her and brought her to this strange territory, but she will never do what they want of her… what everyone wants of her. The last thing the fugitive needs is the very public attention of a fierce dragon prince claiming they’re fated by the gods—even if the sexy man makes her burn in more ways than one.
