An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.
For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.
For sheltered Lily Kiers, it’s all too real. Her escape from danger, straight into the arms of her destiny.
Thrust into a realm made of fantasy and unbridled passion, Lily faces violent resentment and jealousy from extremely powerful enemies. Amidst fierce creatures whose very existence defy all common sense, Lily pieces together a past she could never have imagined.
Claimed by Kord, Prince of Battle Draconian, their love will not be denied, even as malevolent forces plot to rip them apart.
“I won’t hurt you.” The dragon’s powerful voice held a soothing quality. Then it ruined the moment by leaning down to sniff her. “Mmm. You smell like apples and honey.” To her amazement, that long, forked tongue re-emerged and flicked gently along her neck. Its texture felt incongruously like velvet.
Lily managed to bite back a hysterical shriek even as her lower lip trembled. She clamped it between her teeth to steady it, before venturing, “A-Are you going to eat me?”
Every muscle and bone in her body hurt. Her world had upended itself. Beyond exhausted, she longed for this nightmare to end.
If a dragon could frown, then this dragon was definitely frowning. Its fierce expression sent additional shudders through her, and she fully expected those massive jaws to come for her at any moment.
As hard as she struggled for calm, tears leaked from her eyes when he raised long, sharp claws and reached for her. Too frightened to move, she turned her head away. The thrumming of her heart pounded through her entire body as she waited for the sharp talons to slash into her. Instead, the dragon carefully nudged her cheek until she was forced to raise her face and meet its magnetic stare.
“I said I wouldn’t hurt you.” Then slowly and gently the creature unfurled its tail, the very tip pressing against her lower back as if encouraging her to gain her feet, and held her steady until she was standing securely on the ground.
Before Lily had a chance to run, there was a bright flash of light, then a shimmering of brilliant colors. Her jaw slackened at the sight of a man standing before her.
An extremely handsome, naked man.

Realm of the Dragon by CiCi Cordelia (the writing team of Char Chaffen and Cheryl Yeko relays the journey of Lily Kiers whose flight from danger leads her on an adventure far beyond her wildest imaginings. Sexy Kordlith (Kord) of the Battle Draconian can’t believe it when his mate literally drops in on him, but he’s never been shy about going after he wants…and he and his dragon want Lily to be their mate. Now they just have to convince her, and overcome her objections as well as vanquish the danger that continues to threaten her.
This paranormal romance tale is the first book in the ‘Soul Mate Tree’ series, and introduces a fantastical world peopled by wondrous creatures. I love dragon stories and this is a fun twist on the concept of dragon shapeshifters and showcases a fascinating spectrum of creatures. There are nice surprises gradually revealed that help propel the mystery and several yummy alpha males introduced, as well as the females who capture their devotion. The contrast between the mystical and magical beings and events and the pragmatic and idiomatic statements that are sprinkled in the story provides a great element of humor that balances the sizzling heat that flourishes between the paired couples. Some of the story is a little rushed for me and I would liked to have gotten more depth to most of the characters, but I think this is a nice introduction to the series and I hope there are more tales involving these beings.
