Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take the slave as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death. His only choice is to grant her freedom.
Lileta wanted to kill Caleb, but when she is freed by this tempting male, her anger turns to a desire that can only prove fatal. Even if she could claim him as her own, her dark past makes her unworthy of his love.
When their paths continue to intertwine, spiraling them to the brink of passion, can they resist the yearnings burning within them, or will they submit to their fatal desire?
I’m so happy to be here today and look who I brought with me. Caleb, our sexy dragon from Fatal Desire. He has agreed to answer a few questions. What fun!
Me: I try not to notice the black leather pants that cling to him like a second skin and the fact he forgot to wear a shirt. Shit, shit, and SHIT!
“Thanks for coming Caleb, I really appreciate it.”
Caleb: “Like I had a choice?”
Me: “No. You owe me for making my life hell for the past several months. Shall I start by telling the readers how you yelled at me on my drive to work one day?”
Caleb: “I didn’t yell. I merely used persuasion.”
Me: “Oh excuse me, my mistake. You did make me re-write three chapters of Eternal Flame you know. I had other visions of who was to star in book two.”
Caleb: *shrugs* “You’ll get over it.”
Me: *sigh* “Well anyway. I’m sure our readers would love to know what it’s like being a dragon shifter.”
Caleb: “You’re fucking kidding. Really? Why don’t you tell me what’s it’s like being a human?”
Me: “Do you know you can be an ass?”
Caleb: “I’m a dragon, you know we’re moody.”
Me: Boy he’s not kidding. “Well let me start with some standard stuff then.” I pull out my notes, this was going to be harder than I expected. “Do you have any siblings?”
Me: “Oh yes Diego, How could I forget him?" I wipe drool from my chin. "I’m sorry; I forgot Talon was a touchy subject. Next, what is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?”
Caleb: “They only need know I’m lethal and don’t fuck with what’s mine.”
Me: *swallows hard* “How much of a rebel are you?”
Caleb: “I make my own rules and live on the edge.”
Me: “What do you consider to be your greatest achievement?”
Caleb: “Winning my mate’s trust. It was no easy task as you well know.”
Me: He gives me a glare and his eyes shift from brown to green. “Um sorry about that.” I slide further down in my chair. “Moving along. What is your most marked characteristic?”
Caleb: “I can breathe fire. What can you do?”
Me: My courage surges and I lean forward. “I wield a wicked pen and it has the power to kill you so I suggest you,” *I point a finger in his direction* “kiss my ass.”
Caleb: “You know I’m only kidding.” He flashes a brilliant smile.
Me: “I thought so. Since I know this is killing you, we’ll end with one more. What makes you blush?”
Caleb: “Not a fucking thing, but if I wasn’t mated I know how to turn your cheeks rosy pink.”
Me: I can feel them heating already. “Ahem. Alrighty, I think you need to go home and I need a cold shower.”
