If you have a good book, staying at home can be an adventure.
My second excerpt is from book 2 of my Dragonfire series – CHOSEN
Enjoy the fire
Even good dragons will do bad things for gold.
A thousand years ago, two dragon clans went to war over a cache of gold. To end the war, a sorcerer hid the gold and foretold of the birth of a female bearing the mark of the dragon.
Born with a dragon on her hip, Karis Nordrath is the chosen, and because of the mark she’s been guarded all of her life. According to legend, the location of the gold will be revealed when the chosen is bonded with her dragon mate, but the only dragon that stirs Karis’ fire is bodyguard, Rett Aurumon.
Rett left the Fire Mountains to follow a wanderlust he couldn’t explain until he laid eyes on Karis. Hired as her bodyguard, Rett doesn’t know if his true role is protector or mate. He doesn’t know Karis is the chosen, but he knows she’s the one.
TOP PICK Night Owl Reviews
I loved this dragon love book. It’s definitely a spicy top pick!
This was the moment. The time to find out if her senses were right and this burning in her blood and the sizzle of desire running through her, unlike anything she ever known before, was dragonfire.
Karis hadn’t experienced dragonfire, the special heat that happened between true mates. In another second, she’d burst into flame.
What if he rejected her?
Now wasn’t the time to doubt, but to act.
She grabbed his tie and pulled him toward her. She pressed her lips to his, then softened the kiss. She moved her lips over his. He responded, his lips firm and demanding, making the kiss lush and hot.
Fire flashed through her, heating flesh and bone.
Her skin tingled and rippled as scales formed, then disappeared. That had never happened before. She’d always been in control of her shifting.
Instead of pushing her away, Rett gathered her close and deepened the kiss. His tongue slipped inside her mouth and the heat was so intense, her lungs burned.
Breathless and wanting to be closer, she crawled onto his lap. The hard ridge of his erection against her thigh told her he wanted her. Heart pounding, Karis shivered in anticipation as she removed his tie.
His breathing deepened and his chest heaved as she unbuttoned his shirt.
“Karis.” He grasped her hand. “This isn’t safe. I’m wearing weapons.”
She touched his chest. His skin was smooth and hot against her palms. “Take them off.”
“This isn’t wise.”
Her heart thundering, she met his gaze and saw fire in his eyes. Blazing fire.
“We can’t,” Rett said, clenching his fists.
She stared at him, confusion taking the sparkle out of her eyes. His body was on fire for her and he was turning down the thing he desired most in the world.
She dug her fingers into his skin. “Why?”
Rett welcomed the pain. “I gave my word to your father, not just as your bodyguard, but as a dragon warrior.”
“Is that the only reason?”
He pulled her hand away from his chest and kissed her inner wrist. “Until this moment I’ve never, ever, been tempted to break my word.”
His word and his honor were very important to him, but Karis tested his will. Having her straddling his lap, seductive and beautiful, with her dress hiked up and her groin pressed to his was a situation he hadn’t considered when accepting the position with the Norgrath security team.
“Just one kiss then. I promise I won’t rip off your clothes and drag you into my bed for a night of wild dragon sex.”
