That Sweet and Savage Land

by Elizabeth Darrell

A treacherous love in a land of turmoil

When Elizabeth Delacourt marries her husband, William, she does not expect a life of adventure and colour. But she hasn’t bargained for the days of mindless boredom spent with female in-laws while her husband joins his troops in India. Then, while out riding one morning, she meets a man who changes the course of her life forever.

Witty, intelligent and debonair, John Stavenham stands for the exact opposite of Elizabeth’s dull and dreadful existence. She is instantly drawn by his vitality and falls hopelessly in love. But John must return to his regiment in the same far-off continent as her husband.

Unable to bear the drab life in England any longer, Elizabeth travels secretly to India and finds a country shaken by mutiny and bloodshed. This, however, is only the first of many startling discoveries she is to make in her quest for love through a war-torn land . . .

Dragon Wars: Genghis Khan with dragons

by Brent Reilly

Genghis Khan’s fearsome dragon hordes conquered the world’s largest empire, but in China they’ll face three generations of lovers flying dragons in this aerial war. China’s Dragon King must ally with neighbors to stop history’s greatest conqueror from slaughtering cities. When Kublai Khan tries finishing the conquest of China, the Dragon Queen must face him above Peking with her elite Dragon Force.

EXCERPTS: The dragon was huge, with red eyes, long horns, and gold-colored scales. Jie could barely run through trees faster than he could knock them aside in his desperate attempt to burn her alive.

“It’s better if you let him die. One heartbreak is killer; two is murder. You can either heal the dragon’s heart or break it beyond repair.”

The Great Khan heard the Dragon Queen roaring victory a mile above ground as his dragon fell uncontrollably.

“We might get wet,” her new boyfriend said as his dragon flew over waves. “I should start wearing bras,” she lied deliciously. “And panties.”

She watched women watch her husband with That Look in their eyes. Jie grabbed a fistful of shirt to kiss him before too many left. It was a shocking public display of affection that turned her on. He picked her up and carried her to a less crowded bunker.

“Why are we floating on dragons in the open ocean?” she asked angrily. “Instead of exchanging fireballs with Mongols?”

“If you don’t give it to me now,” she warned him hungrily, “I’ll scream.” She screamed anyways. “We forgot to close the door.” He chuckled at the “forgot” part.

Zan patted his son. “A smart man marries a smarter woman.”

“You just saved a dragon! Welcome to the Bad Ass Club. The dues are killer, but the life is sweet.”

2000 dragons filled the sky in the biggest battle in history. The Battle of Peking would be a turning point.
