A life without love, forbidden or not, is a life unlived…
For generations the worlds of man and dragon have lived peacefully side-by-side. Harmonious and yet wholly separate, there is much unknown between them--but that is all about to change. For love knows neither color nor creed, and where there is passion, heat, and desire, it will spark.
So begins the story of Kya the Bloodstone Dragon and Armstrong Knight, the unwitting victims of love’s impervious pull. For when a dragon-shifter walks amongst the humans, the wheels of fate begin to turn and what was once separate worlds collide in the throes of young love. Their bonds will be tested by fate and the greedy, cruel hearts of wicked men. When their very lives, and the secret they share, are threatened, Kya and Armstrong must defy the odds and do what they can to protect the human and dragon worlds. In the chaos, a love story unfolds between two unlikely heroes and the lengths we all go to for the ones we love.
Stones of Dracontias: The Bloodstone Dragon by N.D. Jones
In a world that knows dragons exist, their coexistence is peaceful until the dragon world and mankind collide in a raging inferno of passions of the heart and of the hateful machinations of the brilliant, yet twisted minds of science.
N.D. Jones brings a tale of love, betrayal and redemption to life as Kya, the Bloodstone Dragon defies the Fates and falls in love with a human, Armstrong Knight, a man of honor with a heart of gold. This is a tale that will test the adage that “love conquers all,” as these two find a secret oasis that they each know can go no further, because time is not on their side.
When evil threatens to tear them apart, even the magic of the dragons cannot prevent a crazed scientist from turning up the flames of Hell with his sadistic dreams of creation that knows no bounds of vile experimentation. The secret shared between Kya and Armstrong will become a nightmare that will tear them apart, but only together, can they fight for the ones they love and the love they once shared.
Ms. Jones has not taken the well-traveled path with her paranormal romance. She has created a unique world unlike anything I have read before! I loved that Kya was not a shapeshifter, she wasn’t even from Earth, but her powerful magic could create a beautiful woman where a fierce dragon once stood. I was also taken by the fact that Armstrong fell in love with the dragon, not the woman Kya could become.
This isn’t a rapid-fire action tale, it is a love story gone so very wrong when evil steps in. Don’t get me wrong, there is action and those scenes are powerful and emotionally charged. But for me, it was the extremes two beings would go to for those they loved. And that ending? All I can say is I was caught up in its web…N.D. Jones has a hit here that will sucker-punch your heart! Publishing just in time for great summer reading!
