Dragon's Kiss by Deborah Cooke

A Dragon Shifter Romance

Her kiss could be his doom...

Dragon's kiss

When dragon-shifter Kristofer feels his firestorm ignite, he eagerly follows its spark to his destined mate. To his surprise, the heat leads him to a Valkyrie intent on claiming his soul. Even so, Kristofer has never met a woman as alluring as the fierce warrior before him. Trusting in the firestorm, he must convince her to fight with him instead of against him.

Trading the life of a dragon shifter for that of her sister Valkyrie is an easy choice for Bree…until she meets Kristofer. Experience taught her that dragons are evil, but in him she sees a bold and noble warrior. Finding his confidence as irresistible as his touch, Bree fears she is being tricked into abandoning her sister. But how can she take Kristofer’s life when his very presence makes her burn with desire?

When they’re compelled to join forces, Kristofer seizes the chance to convince Bree that they’re stronger together. Yet as a sinister plan unfolds, an ancient dragon is roused from his slumber. With danger closing in, can Kristofer convince Bree to surrender her immortality for their forbidden love? Or will Bree’s distrust of dragons prove justified?

Sales info:

This is the first full-length paranormal romance in my new series featuring dragon shifter heroes and heroines with powers of their own. (There is also a prologue, called Maeve's Book of Beasts, which is technically the first work in the series.) This series is in progress and is building a following at full price. I maintain a separate website, Facebook page and newsletter for my paranormal romances, including this series.

I would prefer translator/proofreader teams and ideally, the same team will translate the entire series.

Sample text:

In his home in Vermont, Kristofer Anderson was packing. He was catching the train in the morning to New York and would meet the other Pyr there: he had to leave early to drive to the station in time. There was no way he was going to take his truck into the city. He wondered again why Theo was insistent that they meet earlier than originally planned.

On impulse, he went into his hoard, checking the dragonsmoke barrier once again, and retrieved the small sack. The weight of the twenty-four stones inside was familiar and welcome. They looked almost like Scrabble tiles, but each was a small stone with a different symbol carved into it. The stones had been chosen to be very close in size. They’d been polished before being etched with the rune and had worn even smoother with use. His father had carved them and polished them, and Kristofer thought of his father every time he touched them. He reached into the bag and chose one blindly, closing his hand around it and letting it guide his thoughts.

“Uruz,” Kristofer murmured to himself, naming the rune before he opened his hand and stared down at it. He was right. He had always named the runes right. His father had called it his gift. “A challenge that might cost everything.” He considered the stone for a long moment before replacing it in the bag and tying the drawstring.

Something was beginning.

Good or bad?

Kristofer wasn’t sure. He left his hoard and tucked the bag into his backpack, expecting that he might need the counsel of his father’s runes in New York.
