Three novellas (and two bonus short stories) of duty and honor, love and loss, happiness and despair from the world of the dragshi. As with any tale from history and legend, some contain larger than life deeds. Others are the simple story of a man or woman doing what must be done, regardless of the cost.
The dragshi are more than just a man or woman. Each are two beings–one a dragon, the other a human–sharing one body in space in time and able to change forms with the other at will.
But a lesson to be learned. When you shift into dragon form, sometimes Fate controls the flight.
Between Swords and Sickness -- The fever called the demon fire ravaged the city leaving only a handful of oldsters and teens to care for the sick and man the wall. Defending the sick and the dying, one man stood alone against an invading army. He had no hope but for dragon fire and talons. But Geelneach is only a man.
Fire and Ice – Mirabeesh was empress--until the day her token appeared in the lottery and she was chosen as diovi. Her fate? Fire or Ice.
Magic and Steel – Bodyguard to a lady dragon shifter threatened by a former suitor, Kedar dared not fail in his duty--or love the Lady Mairin Aledriwyr of the Dragshi.
Forever Bound– His mate sent to the other side of the veil by a crazed dragon hater, Lasair has two goals: to join his wife--and revenge.
The Unknown Patient – Trapped by duty, Etianne longed for the freedom offered other girls her age, to be fostered out to a village or craft hall. However she could not leave her clan without a healer. So she stayed. Her life became complicated when the pack train encountered an unconscious man lying in the middle of the trail.
Newly handfasted to the dark-haired archmage Lord Dal, Ellspeth and her husband escort his mother on a final journey to her ancestral lands. Their plans change when mercenaries under the control of a rogue mage attack. Dal's mother is severely wounded and Ellspeth is captured. Her sole hope for escape is Nobyn, an untrained wizard going through the throes of awakening magic. However, Nobyn is Bashim's apprentice and under the mage's total control.
Dal must make an impossible decision whether to rescue his wife, cure his mother, or thwart Bashim's plans. More than who lives or dies is at stake. He might be able to live with his responsibility for the death of a loved one, but could he survive killing the future of magic.
Glyn, former bodyguard and companion to a dragon lord, is now Lady Glynnes Janaleigh, a dragon lord in her own right. And she has found her intended mate. But, her new-found happiness is fleeting. Finding your mate is only half the battle. Keeping them alive is the other.
For a dragshi, duty is more than administering justice or saving the innocent. More than one suitor has fallen from the sky during a mating flight. Even worse, fate decrees mating fights don’t always involve the partner you want.
Vengeance takes many paths. The leader called the Parant means to have his, no matter how long it takes or how many innocents die in the attempt. For the last two unattached dragon shifters, their only weapons to survive their destinies are their swords—and love. Sometimes not even dragon fire and talons are enough to overcome the mind control wielded by the leader called—the Parant.
Book Four of the Dragshi Chronicles continues the tale of the dragshi, a human who can exchange bodies with a dragon. But the freedom of the skies comes with a price.
Although the stories in the Dragshi Chronicles are connected, each book stands alone as an individual read
Hatchling’s Mate continues the tale of the dragshi, a human who can exchange bodies with a dragon. Talann’s future was far from assured. Although the son of two dragon lords, none of the old ones sang a welcome at his birth. And now years later there was still no sign of the awakening of a twinned dragon soul. From his birth, it was expected he would marry the only other child born to the dragon shifters, the Lady Lexii Beylnea. However, fate had other intentions. Talann and Lexii could not stand to be together.
Haldric hated all shifters but one—the Lady Lexii Beylnea, whom he meant to possess at any cost. His one tool to achieve both his goals meant risking all. Although his uncle, known to his followers as the Parant, possessed the ability to turn men and women into his willing slaves, the older man was as apt to turn on friend as foe.
Pledged to protect Lexii until the dragon lord’s intended mate appears, Glyn must fight to keep hidden the secret no one could never learn.
The freedom of the skies comes with a price.
Lord Branin is a dragshi, a human who can exchange bodies with a dragon. After millennia of waiting...and searching, Branin and his dragon counterpart, Llewlyn, have found their intended mates.
For the dragshi, the freedom of flight comes with a price. Now Branin has to find a cure for the childlessness of his kind. Cryptic references to mating flights add hope, but dark references about the deaths of suitors threatens not only his life, but the dreams of all dragon shifters.
Even if the curse is broken, another threatens Branin’s plans for a family. The firebrand leader of an outlaw band, Lady Broch of Ky'Port, means to be at Branin’s side. Broch refuses to share Branin—even if it means killing him.
Stands Alone: Yes
For hundreds of years, Dragshi Lord Branin and his dragon soul twin Llewlyn searched for their intended mates. Lady Broch of Ky’Port, the firebrand leader of a band of raiders, vowed to marry the dragon lord, with or without his willing cooperation. Everything changed the day a wistful thought touched Branin’s.
