QSFer Laura Navarre has a new bi/poly paranormal romance out in the Dark Witch Academy series: Gemini Kings.
I summon the dragon. I claim my throne. The warlocks of Icarus Academy claim me.
I start my night with a heist in a Catwoman costume at a Vegas casino…and end up shifting into my dragon form for the first time ever in mid-plummet from the roof.
Except I can’t actually fly. Oops.
Turns out being the first dragon shifter queen to rule the witching world (while I’m simultaneously a student at the Icarus Academy) isn’t, like, a party. Especially when I go into heat. Because now I have…needs…that no warlock at the Academy can satisfy. Plus the only full-blooded male dragon shifter on the planet intends to kill all my warlocks and make me choose just him for my king.
Sweet Jesus, this Maxim guy’s causing a world of trouble. Vasili and Ronin are fighting over whether to kill him or kiss him. My wolf shifter headmaster Lucius has his paws full trying to keep us all from getting expelled. And my sweet bookworm Neo needs something new we’re all afraid to give him.
When a rival rises to threaten my throne, it’ll take major trust between me and all my warlocks—including that vicious dragon I’ve sworn I’ll never claim—to save us all from an assassination attack we’ll need a miracle to survive.
GEMINI KINGS is a New Adult dark witch academy why-choose paranormal romance and the sequel to Gemini Queen. This deadly duet delivers a seductive and lethal warlock court, teacher-student forbidden love, first-time MM, bi awakening, a satisfying climax (no cliffhanger!), and enough fast-burn heat to set your Academy uniform on fire!
GEMINI KINGS is the sequel to GEMINI QUEEN, which is available free on Kindle Unlimited or as an ARC from the author.

“Do join the twenty-first century if you can,” I drawl. “Zara rules her own bed. I merely fuck her, and everyone else, in it.”
“You?” Dripping contempt, the dragon’s flaming eyes rake over me. “Permit me to say, I have my doubts. Do you forget I have seen firsthand that you prefer a man to a woman in your bed?”
I give him an extra telekinetic squeeze for that impertinence.
In fact, it’s all I can manage not to grind his bones.
“Haven’t you heard? I’m bisexual.” I take a violent satisfaction in divulging this tidbit, even though the label still feels a bit odd.
Until Zara came along, I was quite happily convinced I was gay.
She’s still the only woman I’ve ever wanted. The only woman I ever will want, I strongly suspect—but I’m hers completely. I’m her alpha. I’m her snake. I’m the dismay and the terror of all her enemies.
If I’m being honest (a phenomenon you should enjoy while it lasts), I’m more than obsessed with Zara.
I’m dangerously in love with her.
But that’s a secret so dangerous I only share it within the group.
Hearing now that I’ve lost my gay boy gold card due to my recent foray into bisexuality, the dragon blinks. His brow furrows in surprise.
Well, join the club on that one, Rasputin.
“This is not convenient,” he mutters after a bit. His cold Slavic features shift from cruelty to disgruntlement.
“I’m terribly sorry to inconvenience you,” I sniff, giving him another good squeeze to amuse myself.
The dragon scowls at my little jab just beautifully. He’s amusing to torment, this one. In fact, tormenting Maxim Rasputin may just become my new favorite hobby.
