Building Magic

Tina Moreland is an irondog, a person who works on building hi-rises. What most of her colleagues do not know is that she is a graduate student in architecture and working on buildings up high so she can see the façades on other buildings so she brings binoculars to work. Since she brought the binoculars to work, she earns the name of peeping tom or in her case “Tina-Tom”. One day while viewing other buildings she sees a man undressing and has been captivated by him ever since. One day while watching him, she walks off a steel beam and plunges to her death. Before she falls to death, the man she was watching grabs her and flings them both into another world. The man, Devlin, is a dragon who can shift into human form. He is from a world where virginity is prized because when a virgin loses her virginity it gives magic to the dragon. Can you guess what Tina is?

The author has woven and blended a unique tale that takes you to another world. The author has also created believable characters in this one-hundred and twelve page story. I hope she has other books in this series to read.

Book Blurb for Building Magic

When architecture student and summertime welder Tina Moreland develops a reputation as a peeping Tom, it isn’t the first time she’s been teased for being different. Catching a glimpse of the man of her dreams is worth the aggravation. But when she witnesses him doing something stranger than stripping in his hightower office, it’s enough to make her forget that when working unharnessed on the fifth floor, the first step is a long way down.

Working in the human world leaves Devin Ken’Draga frustrated and exhausted. Things aren’t going well. Devin is the Kenta – prime dragon - in a world not far from earth, only a magical breath of flame away. It is a world that is having problems, and he is expected to solve them. The question is how. Civil war has shattered his land and destroyed his home. He can’t come up with an Answer, and the Elders can only tell him he will find what he needs on Earth.

Devin doesn’t have time to rescue a damsel in distress. But since she is literally falling at his feet, he can’t help but to save Tina. Bringing her home wasn’t part of the plan, but once they fall through the magical portal together, there is no going back. It is only when he spreads his wings in his true dragon form that Devin realizes something he hadn’t anticipated – the woman is a virgin, a temptation no dragon can resist.

Together Devin and Tina create a sensual bond, gladly sacrificing her virginity to protect her from the dragon males who might think that hurting her would be a good way to hurt Devin. Her virginity is a gift – with it’s loss comes a release of power that Devin collects into a gemstone. It isn’t enough to stop the war, and Devin is worried. There is no way for him or Tina to ever return to Earth – the magic that rules the land only allows that trip once. He’s lost his chance to bring back a way to find peace for his people. The entire Southern Dragon race is at risk, so many have dies from the war. He turns to Tina for distraction and comfort.

Tina knows Devin is worried and does what she can to soothe him. But she is all that he brought back from Earth – what more can she do to save his people? The questions haunt her. When inspiration strikes, she develops a plan to save them, not realizing how it will hurt Devin. Devin will do anything to save his people, but he must deal with his inner demons, along with those who oppose him physically. Together they must find a way to stand together.

When the time comes, Tina proves her worth to Devin and all the dragons. Devin fights to protect her and his people, and using the magic from their first lovemaking he gifts her with it, mating with her for life and giving his people hope along with a new queen.

To My Readers: I am thrilled to bring you a taste of the dragon world of Sa’Harin! My heroine, Tina, found it to be an eye-opener, and that’s quite a compliment from a reputed Peeping Tom. Devin gives her a lot to look at – between his delicious masculinity and his jaw-dropping beauty as a powerful dragon. Enjoy!
