TITLE: The Dragon Princess
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
Throughout her life, Peregrine Zoracht, former princess of Kaukos, had found refuge in books and studies, and the dragon’s hoard was a wealth of knowledge unavailable to ordinary humans. But tonight, nothing could distract from the turmoil in her mind.
She slid the ancient scroll back onto its shelf in the dragon’s hoard, ran her fingers along a line of leather bound books. Behind her, the silver dragon jolted awake, his wings brushing against the roof of the cavern. He tilted his head to one side, as if listening to something only he could hear. We are no longer alone, Little One.
The absolute isolation of their ice cave made it impossible for this visitor to have any innocent purpose. “Hunters?”
He said nothing else. Rurik was not particularly talkative at the best of times, so if she wished to know the details...
Peregrine closed her eyes, and surrendered to the now-familiar rush of dragon magic, letting the heat and energy flow through her. A sea of boiling white replaced the darkness under her eyelids, and her body shifted. Changed. Grew.
Her senses stretched far beyond the confines of the lair, focusing on the scent of a man and the sound of footsteps crunching through rock and gravel.
Close. Very close.
The footsteps paused at the entrance, and a deep voice echoed through the caverns. “Hello? Anyone home?”
Definitely not the words of a hunter, and there was something very familiar about that voice.
