It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day and everyone is wearing the “green”. My hero is wearing green scales. Play With Fire, a dragon shifter romance.
Every princess needs a hero – – especially one that flies and breathes smoke.
Play With Fire is my party prize.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
Princess Raen has lost everything — her parents, her home and her kingdom. She places her life in the hands of the only person she can trust. Her hero wears armor, but he does not arrive on a white stallion. He flies and breathes smoke.
Arsdon finds the city of Tylis in ruin and the princess he secretly loves in mortal danger. Keeping the promise he made to the dying queen becomes a true conflict between love and duty. Protecting the princess is an honor. Loving her is easy. Suppressing his desire is impossible. Giving her up — heartbreaking.

Arsdon carried the queen to the terrace. Raen followed him through the palace. The destruction of the statues, paintings and tapestries shocked her. All her mother’s treasures were defaced and defiled.
They reached the terrace and Raen saw the smoke rising from the city. She ran to the balustrade and took in the destruction below. The palace stood on a hill overlooking the city her ancestors had built, but that peaceful city was no more. Dozens of buildings were on fire. Shouts and screams rent the air. Anger and hate filled Raen’s heart. How could she run away?
“There’s nothing you can do now. Let Valitar train you. Your mother saved this city and one day you shall do the same.”
She’d go to Valitar and she’d become strong. Those responsible would pay.
She glanced at Arsdon and saw the same anger in his expression.
“Can you ride, Princess Raen?”
“A horse. Never a dragon.” She’d wanted to ride Arsdon’s back, but her father hadn’t approved.
“Your mother once rode my back into battle brandishing a sword.”
The dragon was challenging her and Raen would have to prove she was up to the task. “I learn quickly.”
“I will carry the queen in my forearms. You must climb onto my back and ride at the base of my neck.” He touched the thick, golden chain hanging around his neck. The pendant hanging from the chain matched the ring she wore on her finger. “Hold fast, Your Highness. If you fall I will not be able to save you without dropping the queen.”
Arsdon stepped away from the balustrade and shifted. In a flash of green light, his size increased, his black armor changed to dark green scales and huge wings sprang from his back. Horns sprouted from his head and a bright green crest ran along the length of his back to the tip of his tail.
His back legs were massive, his feet tipped with long talons. His forearms were shorter and smaller, but the dragon held her mother with ease.
Raen climbed onto his back and straddled the base of the dragon’s neck. She stroked Arsdon’s neck, letting her fingers trail over his sleek scales. “Let’s fly.”
