Wildfire: A Paranormal Mystery with Cowboys and Dragons
It’s so great to be celebrating my new release with the Nerd Herd! Woot! I’m thrilled to share my novel, Wildfire: A Paranormal Mystery with Cowboys and Dragons, with you and your readers. Check out my cover:
Lynn Hana Alexander is a 25-year-old Japanese American shape-shifter haunted by guilt. She’s been questioning herself and her dragon abilities ever since she failed to save her grandmother.
When her best friend is threatened by mysterious fires burning up acres of West Texas, Lynn rushes to the rescue determined not to fail again. However, with a tempting firefighter, a flirty city developer and dragon pheromones distracting her, how is she going to find the arsonist?
And worse: is her primary suspect a malicious rogue dragon or the love of her life?
Check out our Review from Cianna!!
“Well, the title has dragons in it, so I read it, though I couldn’t figure out how the dragons and the cowboys got together, but I guess that’s the point of the book!
I wasn’t really interested by the blurb, and I can honestly say the blurb doesn’t come close to making your realize how cool this book was. Dragon shapeshifter, mystery solver Lynn is an amazing character. She’s honest, smart, and as realistic as a dragon shapeshifter can be. She’s got some guilt she’s dealing with, and that helps motivate her character into doing everything she can to solve this mystery!
There is a little bit of romantic tension throughout this book as well, as Lynn is torn between two men, each calling to a different side of her. She’s trying to solve this mystery but the extra elements are making it that much tougher. She’s a journalist by trade, and the author definitely does go into detail about her career and her method but it’s quite interesting and give you a little more then just the private eye line.
The book ends well, and this is one of those books you should definitely check out if you like a good mystery, or a good paraormal story, the author weaves together both of these elements, out in the wild texas and makes it work somehow! I was sad to see it end because it really was captivating!
Overall I liked this story. I thought it was well written, interesting, smart and really good mix of paranormal and mystery. Check this out! :)”
Want a taste? Here’s an excerpt:
Closing her eyes, Lynn Hana Alexander inhaled the dank smell of the bayou and summoned the change.
Heat crackled across her skin, filled her mind, as blue-green scales rippled over her body giving her tan a bronze sheen. Lynn’s core dissolved to molten lava, reformed and hardened. Muscles stretched and grew stronger, bones pushed and molded flesh. Nubs emerged from her back, elongated and flared into wings. A deep burn spread from her gut, igniting cell after cell, until she shook like a live wire juiced on raw power.
Her leathery wings flailed behind her as she stumbled around a bit before settling into the new weight. One would think a five foot one and half-inch Asian American woman would transform into a delicate, miniature-poodle type of dragon. Not so. In dragon-form, Lynn was seven feet of sharp scales, sinuous muscle and steely strength.
She raised her face to the moon and launched from the roof. Below her, Buffalo Bayou wound through downtown Houston glittering like a net of diamonds under the silver moonlight. The tremendous beat of her wings drowned out her worries for a moment.
