QSFer Holly Day has a new MM paranormal romance out: Mated to the Fire Dragon.
Zale wanted to see a dragon. He never expected a miracle.
Zale Hagan is dying. He doesn’t have many days left, but he wants to see a dragon before he leaves the world behind. As a fisherman, he’s seen where land ends many times, but he wants to visit the town where the human realm ends and the dragon realm begins.
Albus the Abomination is a blacksmith on Dragon Row. As a white dragon, he has no status and does his best to keep out of the way of the other dragons living there. But one day Zale steps into his smithy, and everything inside Albus catches fire.
Albus can tell Zale is very ill, but he can’t let him die. Dragon mates don’t get sick, and they live for a long time. Albus tries his best to get one of the other dragons to mate with Zale, but when no one wants to, Albus is at a loss. He could breathe fire into him, but then Zale would have to live his entire life with a white dragon, and no one wants that, do they?
NOTE: Mated to the Fire Dragon takes place on the same street as The Book Dragon’s Lair but can be read as a standalone story.
Get better. Zale wished he would get better, but he wouldn’t. He’d come farther than he’d expected, and he should be grateful for having gotten this much time, but he wanted to cling to Albus. Wanted to stay, to hold on, to see more of Dragon Row, to learn about dragons, to sit in Albus’ shop and ring up his creations.
Life was filled with struggles, but when you realized it was about to end, it was the most precious gift ever given to you. The greatest treasure.
He smiled at Albus as he lowered him onto a day bed of some sort, wrought iron with a dark olive-green mattress. “You have a bed next to your shop?”
According to Holly Day, no day should go by uncelebrated and all of them deserve a story. If she’ll have the time to write them remains to be seen. She lives in rural Sweden with a husband, four children, more pets than most, and wouldn’t last a day without coffee.
Holly gets up at the crack of dawn most days of the week to write gay romance stories. She believes in equality in fiction and in real life. Diversity matters. Representation matters. Visibility matters. We can change the world one story at the time.
