So what’s it about?
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Donna Grant returns with the next exciting story in the Dragon Kings series.
Can she learn to love the man—as well as the dragon within?
Sensual. Clever. Daring. There’s only one thing Kendrick yearns for—peace that has eluded the Dragon Kings. Zora may have been made in the image of Earth, but it’s a far cry from home. For too long the Kings have been on the defensive, betrayed time and again. When Kendrick has an opportunity to stop a foe, he takes it. Except he isn’t the only one tracking it. Soon, he finds himself face-to-face with an exquisite swordswoman who holds him enthralled…and sparks passion within his cold heart.
As an Asavori Ranger, Esha has dedicated her life to protecting her people. She trains relentlessly to become one of their best warriors, forsaking everything else. When a treacherous new enemy invades their lands, she vows to destroy it. Esha’s rash decision has her crossing paths with that of a mysterious, handsome outsider. He’s trouble the Rangers don’t need, but she can’t walk away. He awakens desires long buried and dreams neglected. The temptation of their forbidden union is more than she can resist. She’s soon walking a treacherous path—one that could be the downfall for them both.

Here’s an excerpt:
On top of a small outcropping of a flat rock high atop a mountain, Kendrick sat with his legs dangling over the side, awed by the sunrise. Beautiful. The thought went through Kendrick’s mind every time he saw the sun break over the mountains. He leaned back on his hands and smiled.
“It really is stunning. Whether I’m on Zora or Earth it’s a sight to behold. They’re nearly identical. Though, you’ll have to take my word for it.” He paused and looked over his shoulder into the small cave behind him.
There was a loud sigh that came from within.
Kendrick’s enhanced vision saw through the shadows to the small dragon within. He’d been surprised and thrilled to discover that a Pink had a home in the region he’d been assigned to patrol. Dragons tended to stay away from the borders of their considerable sized domain simply because they didn’t want to encounter humans of any kind.
Despite Kendrick’s weeks on Zora, the Pink had yet to speak to him. Kendrick wasn’t giving up, though. He, like the other Dragon Kings, had long feared that the Pinks were wiped out during the war on Earth with the mortals. Once the Kings came to Zora, they saw the dragons they hadn’t seen in eons flourishing—and with them the Pinks.
The tiniest of dragon species were known to be aloof, but this one, in particular, took it to a whole new level. Not that Kendrick could blame her. It wasn’t just this dragon, either. None of the dragons on Zora were thrilled to see the Kings.
Kendrick frowned as the past barreled through the carefully constructed walls of his mind. He sighed and looked back at the sun. “It’s easy to look at someone’s mistakes and criticize things. It wasna so black and white. Thing were…difficult back then.”
Difficult. Ha. That was an understatement. Things on Earth had been Hell. It didn’t seem to matter what the Kings did, the humans were never happy. With every new truce, there was a retaliation—from both sides.
No one knew who started it. The blame couldn’t be placed at the feet of the dragons or the mortals. The Kings had done what they thought was right.
And it had led them to losing everything.
And a tidbit about the author!!
Q: What’s the most awkward thing that happens to you on a regular basis?
A: I hit my head on everything. Which is kinda ridiculous since I’m so short.
