“Jacinda has a talent that has not been seen in her kind for a very long time. But when she breaks the rules and survives her encounter with the hunters, she and her family have to flee into the mortal world. Jacinda and her tribe have been hunted for centuries because, as the surviving descendants of dragons, their blood and skin are prized trophies. When she becomes attached to one of the hunters, Jacinda and her family face having to pay a terrible price. A suspenseful paranormal romance that is a fun read.”
-- Margaret Brennan Neville, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT


Description

A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness forces her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is the gorgeous, elusive Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

A former high school English teacher, she lives in Houston with her family.
