Sparkles and I are super excited to share the cover reveal for Juliette Cross’s upcoming release, Dragon In The Blood. The artwork for this strikingly beautiful cover was done by Mirella Santana (@mirellasantana3). The first book in the series, Waking The Dragon, earned itself 2 5 star ratings from both of us. It was full of suspense, mystery, and absolutely smoldering heat. We can’t wait to see what happens in Dragon In The Blood!

Synopsis

Valla Moonring, an assassin for the Order of the Morgon Guard, is ordered on a mission into the Wastelands of Aria—a formidable, icy wilderness fraught with all manner of dangers, including outlaws, deadly weather, and big-game predators.  

To her great distaste, she’s partnered with a Nightwing Security operative, Conn Rowanflame, a Morgon with the aggravating ability to get under her skin. While she takes her mission seriously, Conn’s confident charm throws her off balance, a dangerous place to be in conditions like these. Especially when cold nights require close contact.

Sensual attraction binds them ever closer, igniting a passion of unexpected force—the soulfire. But when the hunters become the hunted, their bond could prove perilous. Even fatal…

Just a short little excerpt to whet your appetite

I finally fastened my goggles as they drew closer to us at the landing’s edge. Leaning in so my mouth was close to her ear, I whispered, “But don’t fool yourself.”

“About what?” she asked, still pretending to read the map she’d gotten from the brother.

“Your beast wants to play with mine. And I plan to give her what she wants.”

With that, I stepped off the cliff and whipped my wings wide, feeling a hell of a lot better than I did when I woke up this morning. Valla needed to know what was coming because she was right about one thing. I was used to getting what I wanted. And I’d never desired a woman more in my entire life.

I sighed heavily. “Fine, Conn. You can be all manly and lead but keep your big wings out of the way.”

“You know what they say about a man with big wings, don’t you, Valla?”

He paused to hold back a limb crossing the path. I froze within the warm circle of his arm arching above me.

“That’s right.” He grinned like the devil he was. “Big heart.”

“Pfft. Move out of my way, Rowanflame.”

He laughed at me, right back to his old self.

But the truth was, I saw him differently now. Even from that small act of kindness, Conn Rowanflame was more than a swaggering, macho playboy.

Now he was even more dangerous.
