Dragon Craving by Livia Olteano(Otherworlds Summons #2)Publication date: Late November 2013Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
The world holds few secrets for Oracle Elana Anderson, or as her fans know her, Ela Deville. Successful author of paranormal romance, Ela, has a secret: not all her paranormal characters are quite that fictional. She hardly expected she’d trigger a chain of events that might bring about the end of the world via a pesky dragon. Rendered blind to visions of him, Ela’s only way to save her world is to keep the dragon close…very close.
Obitus, the only awake dragon in the Otherworlds, is determined to get back the magic that was stolen from him and secure his position for a good thousand years. Becoming Akai’s new guardian after getting rid of the current one is the best way to it. But that means getting Ela on his side. He’ll bargain and maneuver his way there if he has to, but ends up tormented by the desire to have her for real.
In a game of deals, half-truths and irresistible cravings, does one heart have to break in order for the other to save the world?
Excerpt 3 – from Chapter 2 (Obitus’s POV):
I sat back on Karla’s couch, my ankle dangling over my other leg’s knee. The place
looked strange, all the objects crowding the already tiny space. But then again my idea
of a cozy home was a large cave with enough room for me to roll around in my dragon
form. Humans were small creatures. In fact, everything in Akai was small and cramped.
The weres leader paced, hands clasped at his back. He was fun too. Jeremy Hays was a
lanky thing with bright red hair that stood out like antennas. He had piercing green eyes
and the nasty habit of biting the inside of his cheek. I liked that worried look about him.
I liked the fear that radiated from him too. He made a considerable effort to cover the
fact that he was looking at anything but me. A couple of times, his gaze came close to
meeting mine. Well, reasonably close. I think the progress froze somewhere around the
“What’s taking the gargoyle so long?” he muttered.
I shrugged. “Sharpening the knife for dinner.”
The werecat flinched. “That’s dragon humor, right?”
I chuckled. “Oh yes, we’re funny like that. Dragons, you know? Never a dull moment.”
The piercing green eyes finally focused on me and Jeremy smiled. He looked very cat-
like right then. I’d first seen him in his cat form–cats were lovely creatures. Tiny as a dot
but so resourceful and agile. I liked cats. I was still iffy about Jeremy though.
“So tell me, what do you get out of it?” he asked eyeing his nails.
I held up a hand. “We’ll discuss it when Kann is here. I don’t like repeating myself.”
Jeremy smiled and nodded, resuming his pacing about. Maybe it was a cat thing, not
being able to stand still when they were nervous.
