Recently, I sat down with the heroine of Under Fyre (Alien Dragon Shifters 1). Rhianna Montclair, an expert in Draconian Relations, is accompanying the president’s daughter to Draco, a planet inhabited by alien dragon shifters. This is a transcript of the interview:
Cara: How can I say this tactfully…are you CRAZY?? Alien dragons are threatening to attack Earth and you’re going to their home planet. Have you lost your mind?
Rhianna: I don’t really want to go. You’re right. It IS crazy. But we’ve reached a crisis, and sending a woman to become the consort to a member of the royal court might be the only chance to prevent a war Earth would lose.
Cara: So you’re going out of patriotic duty?
Rhianna: Partly. But also to support my friend Helena Marshfield.
Cara: The president’s daughter?
Rhianna: Yes. We’ve been friends since college. She’s the consort. Her family has done so much for me, and when she and the president asked me to accompany her, I couldn’t refuse. She’s the lead; I’m the support on this project.
Cara: Don’t you have a degree in Draconian Relations?
Rhianna: Yes. I think that’s one of the reasons why they asked me to accompany her.
Cara: Didn’t you meet the prince of Draco once?
Rhianna: One of the princes. I was in the fifth grade. The dragons had just discovered Earth and had come here on a goodwill tour. I wrote an essay and won a visit by the dragon delegation for my school. Prince K’ev threatened to eat me. I thought he was joking at the time. Now, I know he was mocking me. Dragons can’t be trusted.
Cara: Do you know why they threatened to attack Earth? It seemed rather sudden.
Rhianna: It was very sudden, and I have no clue. It’s one of the things I hope to find out when I get to Draco. People are terrified. They’re hiding in garages and basements, anyplace they think won’t burn.
Cara: Because dragons throw fire.
Cara: And Helena asked you to accompany her.
Cara: Excuse me for asking, but…do you trust her?
Rhianna: Of course I do! She has my back, and I have hers. We’re like sisters. We even look alike. Why would you ask such a thing?
Cara: Sorry. It just seemed strange to me.
Get Rhianna’s full story in Under Frye (Alien Dragon Shifters 1). If you missed Prince K’ev’s interview, you can read that one here.
Betrayed by her people, does she dare trust a dragon?
The alien dragon shapeshifters who discover Earth come in peace—at first. Then, inexplicably, they threaten to attack. In an attempt to show goodwill and appease the dragons, Earth sends a human woman to become a concubine to one of the Draconian king’s sons, Prince K’ev.
K’ev would sooner give up his ability to breathe fire than accept a human, but when he meets Rhianna, sparks fly, and his dragon realizes she’s his mate.
Rhianna falls for the hot-blooded prince, unaware she’s a key link in a desperate scheme to defeat the dragons, a strike that could backfire with devastating consequences. Will she figure out what Earth has planned in time to save her dragon mate? And if she does, will K’ev be able to save her planet from an angry king’s retaliation?
