For this week's Hop, authors are featuring sensual and sexy heroines. Here's my sexy shifter dragon in 7 paragraphs--
The Mystericale Faire had been so much fun. Arondele had loved how different it was from anything she'd ever known in the dragon world. Except for the woman Marinyxa, whose purple ribbon Rodick had refused, gaiety had been the mood of the faire goers. Even the knight who'd lost out to Rodick for the racing prize had been cheerful rather than envious. Unfortunately, in a situation like that, dragons could be very testy.
Memories of those last moments in the hut, of Rodick's mouth on hers as his tongue played with hers, and of his hands cradling her face while they kissed, were fresh and wonderful. She hugged herself, remembering the marvel of feeling this close to someone, whether human or her kind.
If this was what being with a male dragon would be like, she'd love it. Then she went still, and the day with her knight faded. What if mating with a dragon doesn't feel at all the same?
Pushing the frightening thought from her mind, she changed, rising on her back legs, her wings folded behind. The pond caught her reflection, and she saw a body similar in power and grace to her mother Nombella's, with topaz eyes and the same rich glint off golden scales. Like her father's, her head bore the multiple, tall spikes of her royal heritage. This was why in human form she'd chosen to create a spiked circlet of gold to wear.
She'd thought her mother beautiful. Would dreigomen--the male dragons--consider Gloriana lovely, too? When she flew in the ritual, would any male fly up to mate with her, or would she circle ignored and alone in the heavens?
And if no one chose her, would she still be able to fulfill her destiny?
Shivers swept through her. Don't think about that. Think happy thoughts. She forced her fears out, replacing them with memories of her day with Rodick at the faire and in the hut. Warmth spread through her, and she gave a satisfying cry as she spread her wings and flew toward the white castle of King Dreicomar in the Nordrung mountains. Tomorrow would be another day with her own special knight.
