When I was a child, I was obsessed with fairy tales. There was nothing in the world like them. Action. Adventure. A known villain (so much better than the confusion of day to day life in elementary school...you never knew when you were the epic hero or the evil villain...on the playground and off). Swords. Sorcery. Mayhem! I was in reading heaven.
Move on to preteen angst and teenager love and it was Labyrinth, Legend, Willow, Vampire Hunter D, the magic of Kindred the Embraced (in my vampire phase), and Beauty and the Beast (the TV series),
There was just one problem.
The women were waiting to be saved. Some of the female characters were in strong positions but they were at the mercy of both the villain and the hero. While that led to some sexy tension, it definitely left me wanting. This was pre-Buffy, DarkAngel, and many other fantastic ladies who could kick some butt.
Why did the princess have to be at the mercy of the dragon and wait for the hero to rescue her? I always imagined ways she would team up with the dragon and go on other adventures. They were always hilarious and full of danger. Campy. Making fun of conventional character roles.
When I was faced with the reality of being a full-time writer, I was completely stumped. What would be my first big project? Self-doubt is a killer on creativity. When it got to be the worst, I decided to write the fairy tales I'd always wanted to read...with a sexy adult flair, of course. ;)
So I did. And Dash Ryan, dragon prince, stepped into existence. Bold alpha male. Delicious. Trapped in a spell for five hundred years. Waiting for someone to rescue him ;).
Princess Tasminia barely escapes marriage (and a horrible groom-to-be) to find herself in an enchanted room with very sexy and naked man. Chained. At her mercy.
Oh my. It sure got hot from there. No Dragon, No Problem was born.
Dash said it best when he told Tasminia...A woman is the heart of magic...

One bound man. One desperate princess. A curse. And dragons? WTF may never be the same.
WTF Dragon: In the fairytale kingdom of Werthing Ton Fallorian (or WTF for short), fairytale folk have gone insane. With the imps of lust and wickedness on a rampage, no one is safe. Five Princesses, Five Dragons. A coincidence? I don't think so.
The Motive: Princess Tasminia deSoto has had it with her stepmother's horrid matchmaking. Tricking the princess into a surprise wedding with the narcissistic Baron Winterwood from a neighboring kingdom (of the same name) is the final straw. If only there was a dragon to be sacrificed to!
The Idea: Desperation forces her to enlist the aid of the notorious Dash Ryan, illusionist and con artist for hire. Surely the wildly entertaining (and sexy) rogue can come up with something believable. And if a princess can find a little sexual education on the side... well... that's just a plus.
The Twist: Dash Ryan has a few secrets of his own. Secrets he's more than willing to exploit for just a taste of the princess's sexual awakening. But will one taste be enough?
