Convinced dragons have gotten a bad rep throughout time, and more than a little addicted to fairy tales and romance novels, Eden Ashe has decided to re-write history. In her version, the dragons are ancient warriors in tarnished armor, who not only deserve the girl in the end, but will fight forever for her.
Can a kidnapped fairy and a human find love despite all odds?
Nathan Alexander’s batty aunt has done it again. This time she’s sent him a rare plant he doesn’t want. Imagine his surprise when he finds a kidnapped fairy hidden within its leaves. As a man who heads a non-profit organization for abused women and children, Nathan makes it his mission to help her find her way home.
All her life Katenia was warned about the evilness of humans. Never was that proved more true than when she was kidnapped from her quiet valley home. Thrust into the human world, Katenia must fight her very instincts to trust Nathan if she ever hopes to return to her rightful place…and to her normal thumb-sized fairy form.
But with their lives in danger, finding home…and love…will be a journey worthy of a fairy tale.
Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I’ve always wanted to write fairy tale romances, and when a submission call went out from my publisher, looking for fresh takes on myths, legends and fairy tales, I decided to see what would happen if I threw a Thumbelina-type character into the modern, human world.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Watching the characters develop, and watching vague story threads weave themselves together into coherent plots.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Those days where I’m sure I’ve forgotten how to write, or never knew at all, and it’s all just been a fluke that will never happen again.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Tom Hiddleston’s assistant. Just so I could sit in a corner and watch him smile and listen to him talk.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
A plate of food leftover from a catering gig about a month ago. (Gah, that’s gross.)
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I’m almost finished with Saving the Dragon, Dragon Lore book two, and I’m about halfway done with Ever Yours, the story of Katenia’s brother Linx, also known as The Frog Prince.
