August 28, 2012
Fueled by dragon magic, the dark immortal warriors were never meant to feel human desire, much less fall in love. But when Guy, a member of an ancient order of shape-shifting warriors, meets Elena Griffin—a mere mortal whose beauty and blind ambition shakes him to his core—all bets are off…

Having left America to explore the Scottish Highlands, Elena suddenly finds herself lost in a dark cave—alone, injured, and utterly hopeless…until Guy appears from out of nowhere. Is she dreaming her own rescue when she falls into his arms? A man—and a passion—this strong is too good to be true. It’s only a matter a time before she learns the truth about the flames in his heart. And the dragon in his soul…

Night’s Awakening ~
Meet the hero ~

Guy is wholly unprepared for his life to be shaken to its very core when he saves a woman who has trespassed onto their land and decided to go caving in their mountain. While everyone else is worried what she might have seen, Guy is more concerned with the way he can't stay away from Elena or her very tempting lips.

Never once has he turned his back on his fellow Dragon Kings, but for Elena he would do anything just to keep her near him. Even if it meant going against everything it was to be a King.

Dragon Color:  Red
Power: Erase Memories

Read a snippet from Night's Awakening ~~

“Your name,” Banan repeated.
“Elena. Elena Griffin.”
Guy liked the sound of her American accent. It was almost Southern, but more cultured.
“Well, Elena, what are we to do with you?”
She turned her head and looked at him, her eyes widening a fraction. Her lips parted and she simply stared. He was trapped in her sage green eyes. He was drowning, sinking. Falling. And there was no way to stop it. Guy didn’t like the emotions swirling around in his chest. He worried over whether she was cold, and if she was hungry.
 “Please find Sloan,” she said into the silence.
 He gave a nod, thankful to have something to focus on.
 “Where did she fall?” Elena’s green eyes shifted as she pointed to where she had been.
“I came from that way. There is a large hole in the ground that Sloan wanted to explore. She didn’t anchor the bolt right, and it came out before I could help her.”
“It’s all right,” he said, and wondered if it really was. It seemed the right thing to say, especially since she stopped talking a mile a minute.
Banan straightened and turned on his heel. “I’ll go look.”
“I didn’t want to come,” Elena said. “I told her I had a bad feeling. I heard her scream, and then nothing.”
Guy fisted his hands to keep from touching her. The need hammered within him and became so overwhelming that he stood and moved away from her.
“Have you been caving before?”
“Then it is no’ your fault,” Rhys said.
Guy stood off to the side, staring at Elena while Rhys managed to move her leg a bit to see if it was broken. His small shake of his head told Guy the bones were intact.
That was the only good news.

Dark Craving! 

Fueled by ancient magic—and enflamed by human desire—the Dragon King known as Hal can transform himself at will into one of the legendary winged creatures he is sworn to protect. But one thing he can never do is fall in love…with a mortal woman.

Searching for her brother in Scotland—and succumbing to the freezing cold—Cassie Hunter awakens to find herself in the arms of a magnificent Highland warrior. Across his chest is the tattoo of a fiery dragon. And in his heart is a burning passion that, once unleashed, will consume them both…body and soul.

This is a story of destiny and desire, magic and mystery, warriors and lovers.

These are the forbidden cravings of the Dark Kings.
