"Hot, hot, new fantasy will have you wanting a dragon of your own!"
Lisa Singleton had experienced her share of set backs
recently. A lost job, a failed marriage, had sent her
arrowing back to the one place she'd been happy and secure,
San Francisco. Her parents had relocated to Hawaii, leaving
Lisa's Chinese maternal grandmother, Li Na, as the only
relative she could turn to for comfort there. When Lisa had
been a child Li Na had spun tales of dragons and a legacy
that Lisa would someday fulfill. Upon Li Na's death, Lisa
awakens with a silver streak running through her red hair,
the same silver streak that had decorated Li Na's own black
When Lisa moves into Li Na's apartment she discovers that
there were more to her grandmother's tales than mere
fantasy. In the spare bedroom she finds she has inherited a
roommate. Not just any roommate but an enormous golden
dragon named Caleb.
Caleb is only the name used for others to call him by, for
knowledge of a dragon's true name is to enslave him.
Unfortunately in his youth, out of gratitude he had given
his true name to a powerful witch. The knowledge of the
name had been passed down through the generations of the
witch's family tree. When summoned, Caleb had no choice but
to obey. This time he had been summoned by a trio of
witches, Donna, Saba, and Grizelda and had been charged
protecting Lisa, who is unaware of the incredible power she
possesses, from a black dragon who had been trapped in
human form. Golden dragons are the best warriors while
blacks are the oldest and most intelligent and cunning.
Once Caleb and Lisa meet and come to terms with their
situation, the two become fast friends.
Malcolm the black dragon had been trapped on Earth in human
form centuries ago. He is lonely and misses the freedom of
flying in Dragonspace. All he has ever wanted is to go back
home. Although Lisa is unaware of her legacy, Malcolm knows
that she alone is the guardian of a dragon orb brought to
the human world generations ago by Lisa's ancestor. The orb
has the power to break the enchantment on Malcolm and send
him home. Unfortunately the result of the orb's use would
tear the human world apart. Human witches had been
responsible for Malcolm's plight so he has no care for the
safety of human kind. Malcolm intends to place his mark on
any human close enough to Lisa to help him achieve his goal.
Donna, the mastermind of the witches who control Caleb, has
her own use for the orb. Though she has forbidden the
others to allow Caleb full entry into the human world, when
it becomes apparent that Malcolm has begun to make his
move, Caleb begs Saba to help him fully protect Lisa. The
next thing Lisa knows she has a new roommate, a huge,
muscular, naked man with golden hair, and Caleb's eyes.
In human form Caleb feels for the first time the emotions
that humans feel. His affection for Lisa now takes on a
whole new dimension and he will do anything to protect the
woman he now recognizes as his mate.
I'll leave Lisa's amazing legacy for the reader to
discover, suffice it to say that the vivid imagery of this
unique fantasy romance will take one soaring to a new world
you might find yourself reluctant to return from. But never
fear Malcolm has left behind a pair of black dragon tears
in the hands of the witch Saba. They get their own story in
book 2, The Black Dragon to be released in November 2007.
