Draconia Tales

Draconia Tales
The Wild Rose Press

In a world where men can
become dragons . . . 
“You don’t mind leaving?”

All brawn, no brain obviously. Hadn’t she just said that downstairs?

“That’s right. I want to leave. You want to take me. It works out well for both of us. Now, how much can I take?”

“You do not feel a need to take your entire shop, do you?” A small wrinkle appeared between his brows.

“As you noticed earlier, there’s not much to take. I have clothes and personal items. A couple of bags, maybe.”

“One bag. Thoren travels light. Insists we do the same.” He glanced to the bed and back to her, grinning. “Besides, the less time you take packing, the more time we’ll have for pleasure.”

Lily’s whole body stiffened, as blood pounded in her ears. Oh, Goddess, not now. She hadn’t left the town. Now she’d never leave. He’d crush her before she could be free.

He took a swaggering step toward her, cupping her face in his hand. “Don’t be frightened. I won’t hurt you.”

Sure you won’t, look at the size of you.

Bending forward, he placed his lips against hers, pressing gently. And just like that, her nervousness vanished.

As a Watcher, a guardian warrior of the Draconi, Enar has never fit in with his kind. When he sees Lily--the ideal Watcher's woman--he instantly claims her, believing she will bring him the acceptance he craves. Falling in love with her was not part of his plan.

As her town's outcast, Lily wants nothing more than to escape. When Enar locks a necklace around her throat and declares she belongs to him, she jumps at the chance to leave. Her excitement soon becomes trepidation when Enar won't tell her what to expect in his world. But even her worry can't overcome her growing attraction to him.

Soon Lily learns what life as a Watcher's claim entails, and refuses to submit. To keep Lily, Enar must turn his back on everything he thought he wanted. Will he choose his people? Or the other half of his soul?


By day, Karilyn works in the research department of an oncology clinic. By night, she tells the stories of her imaginary friends.

Karilyn and her most wonderful, ever-patient husband share their home in the great state of Texas with two partially psycho dogs and a handful of colorful fish.


ANGI: What's the biggest difference in our world and Enar's?
KARILYN: Dragons! I’ve yet to see a shape-shifting dragon on earth, but if you have let me know! <g>

ANGI: What’s Enar's favorite “love” word?
KARILYN: Enar has trouble pulling out the big “L” word. He’d rather offer to kill anything bothering Lily. Being gruff is how he shows he cares.

ANGI: What did Enar do as a child?
KARILYN: A Watcher’s childhood was filled with learning to fight and kill. They also met their Draconi wards, the male Draconi they were to guard. That’s how he met his best friend Thoren. Together they got into a lot of trouble when young. <g>

ANGI: What’s your favorite secondary character from WARRIOR LOVER?
KARILYN: The dragon Fafnir. He’s the hero of the third book (which I’m still writing!). But I’m also fond of the boy Jamie. Or as Enar describes him: trouble comes in small packages.

ANGI: What do you like best about Enar?
KARILYN: He starts off out of touch with his emotions, but learns to love and express that love by the end of the story.

ANGI: Are there books in Enar's world?
KARILYN: There are, but he’d rather fight than read one. Unlike me. <g>

ANGI: If Warrior Lover were an Action film, which one would it be?
KARILYN: Oh wow, that’s a tough one. Entrapment comes to mind, but maybe it’s just appearing b/c I like the movie. <g>

ANGI: Who’s your favorite villain in the Draconia Tales?
KARILYN: The masked Draconi. He’s the nasty villain that keeps appearing in each of the books.

ANGI: What is Enar's biggest vice?
KARILYN:  He keeps things from Lily in order to protect her from the truth. Which, of course, drives her away.

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: Why shape shifting Dragons? When I picture a dragon, they aren't extremely sexy and easy to cuddle… What made you fall in love with dragons?
KARILYN'S GOTTA ANSWER: I’ve always found dragons fascinating. They’re huge, scaly and pretty much the biggest, baddest things out there. Plus they have wings and can get places faster than walking. My dragons perform magic and turn into sexy men. Who doesn’t want a sexy man flying them places and protecting them from harm? <g>   


I’m currently writing the third book in the Draconia Tales trilogy, Dragon Lover.

  2. Hi Linda,
    Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my dragons!!!

    Happy reading!


    What's my favorite fantasy creature...I'm not certain. But I've always been partial to Karen Marie Moning's FEY. Love magic!!

  4. Hi Angi! Thank you so much for having me here! It's always a good time! I like KMM's books too. Her latest is in my ever growing TBR pile. :)

  5. Ohhh! I love me some dragons! This is going on my TBR list!

  6. Hi Jeanne! Thank you for stopping by! I hope you like my dragons, they're fun to write about!! :)

    Happy reading!

  7. Karilyn, welcome to Get Lost in a Story. Your writing sound fantastic e.g. fantasy. Love your escapism. I'm curious why dragons are so popular these days. Don't get me wrong. I like dragons. I liked to sing Puff the Magic Dragon until my daughter told me I was singing a "stoner" song. Still like the song though so who cares what she thinks ;)

    Seriously, I'd love to know the attraction. I'm more of a realist but I love the mystique of changelings. Not a big werewolf fan, but I love the Je ne sais quois of a character having a forbidden/supernatural power. Does that make sense at all?

  8. Nice covers and interview

    1. Thank you for stopping by! Glad to hear you liked the interview and covers!

      Happy reading!

  9. Hi Donnell! Thank you! I like Puff the Magic Dragon song too. I'm with you there! :)

    Yes, that makes perfect sense!! I think dragons and other fantasy creatures are popular nowadays b/c of the escapism of another world and being something you can't be in this world. At least that's what it is for me. :) I like to escape into a different world, a completely different world, when I read.

    But whatever genre you read, enjoy reading it! :)

  10. Thank you Regina! I'm glad you stopped by!!

  11. And the winner is... Linda! Congrats Linda! I'll contact you via email. Thank you all for stopping by!!
