Showcase/Review of Wyvern's Mate by Deborah Cooke

There be Dragons, again! If you are a fan of Ms. Cooke's Pyr series you'll love this one. Not because they're similar because the only thing similar are dragons and Deborah's masterful storytelling. This series is a mix of novellas and short stories now get ready to be introduced to the Dragons of Incendium!

Once, in the Kingdom of Incendium, there were twelve princesses of the realm, each a dragon shifter. Each fiery and passionate. Each possessed of an appetite for pleasure that only her destined mate can satisfy. Twelve men are expected in Incendium, each with special powers of his own, each with the gift to claim one dragon princess's heart forever. 
Troy will do whatever is necessary to earn his freedom from solitary confinement on the penal colony of Xanto, even assassinate a princess of Incendium. Being a MindBender, he has a serious advantage as a predator and thinks the princess in question doesn't have a chance. Only one of them can survive and Troy knows who it will be--until he meets Drakina. 
Royal dragon shifter Drakina has a quest of her own, to seduce her destined mate and conceive the crown prince of Incendium. Her father will free her from all other responsibilities if she completes this one task. Drakina craves her independence enough to seduce the unattractive Terran who is the Carrier of the Seed. She's sure it will be a quick seduction--until she meets Troy.
Worlds collide when Troy and Drakina meet, and passion flares. The attraction is so powerful that they both choose to put their goals aside for one night of passion together. When their respective secrets are revealed, will the truth turn one against the other? Or will destiny allow this star-crossed pair to save each other and their unborn son?

My Review
Wyvern’s Mate
by Deborah Cooke
book 1 in the Dragons of Incendium series

Deborah Cooke’s first in her new Dragons of Incendium series is a masterful melding of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Paranormal romance. Her cast of characters are colorful in dragon or human form, her imaginative world is both familiar and foreign and her stars, the defiant yet compassionate heroine and school of hard knocks hero, rock the universe. Her dialogue is fast paced and fluent and she completes her tale brilliantly in an economy of pages. I can’t wait for the next dynamic dragon tale!

Drakina eldest of Incendium’s twelve dragon shape-shifting princesses has been offered a royal deal. Mate and conceive a royal heir with her destined mate and her father the king will never again ask anything of her. Drakina snaps up the deal, she does owe it to her kind, after all, to propagate the species and she’s only planning to mate and run. That is until she meets her match.
After serving time on the Penal colony Xantos Troy has one chance to earn his freedom, it might not be the right thing to do, but he’s done worse and he’ll avoid execution. He’s agreed to complete a simple mission; kill a dragon-shifting princess. He doesn’t know why she’s supposed to die and he can’t afford to care. But everything changes when he meets her fiery highness.
