Released: 2017-04-05
Kindle Edition (120 pages)

Dragon s Confession (Lords of the Dragon Islands Book 1)
Product Description:

Dragon's Confession: A BBW/Billionaire Dragon Shifter Romance

Two impulsive virgins scorched by passion.

Victor didn’t intend to ruin his fated mate’s life.

BBW Ingrid knew she wasn’t just playing with smoking-hot Victor, she was playing with fire.

She just didn’t expect to end up breathing fire herself.

When Victor’s beautiful dragoness wept tears of diamonds because she didn’t want to get married, he set his one true love free, but he kept her in his heart.

Fast forward six years. Victor is a much-decorated naval officer, hero of a hundred perilous missions. His billionaire dragon clan thinks he’s earned a second chance with curvy Ingrid.

As if. Ingrid may be all grown up, but she knows arrogant, possessive Victor hasn't changed a bit.

This champion skier hasn’t spent the last six years in isolation. Just how many notches has she carved into her ski poles?

Protective, dominant Victor may be a towering alpha male, used to leading men and commanding instant obedience, but he’s only ever kissed one girl.

He knows he can satisfy Ingrid in bed, but her love is the prize he’s after. Will feisty Ingrid realize his awkwardness conceals a heart that beats for her alone?

Jealous Victor is honor bound not to claim Ingrid by right of capture. Yet his luscious dragoness bride is a prize to any passing dragon. And a rogue is stalking her.

Witty dialogue, believable characters, & a dash of adventure make this feel-good romance a page-turner you’ll love. Take a vacation from the humdrum with Isadora’s dragon shifters right now.

Spice alert: Dragon and dragoness set the sheets alight. The earthy love of these two shifters will fulfill all your emotional and sensual needs.

This steamy, light-hearted 25k novella introduces the fast-paced Lords of the Dragon Islands series. It is a standalone and has a HEA and no cliffhangers. The book includes preview chapters from Dragon’s Treasure.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
Ideas for the back cover of my book Skiing the New WayFred Pease, a former prominent ski coach, after teaching him the new Outback turn, which is now featured in this revision, told me this new turn has made the most significant impact on my skiing in many, many a year. Ron Kipp, Director of Athlete Preparation for the USST, said: "The Reids relay through their love of skiing and teaching a technique based on what works not what ought to work. This book is worthwhile reading for the Week-end Skier as well as the World Cup Ski Coach."To paraphrase Henry Bendinelli, Director of the Skikats Ski Club: Our week-long trip was an ideal "laboratory" to test your technique for 26 skiers of widely differing abilities. It was resoundingly obvious that they ended up skiing beautifully, much better than they had ever skied in their lives.Then, from the recreational students:Bill Rice said: Ski classes had never clicked like this before-even though I had begun skiing with the best Austrian instructors some thirty-eight years ago and had taken hundreds of lessons since.Tom Humphrey said: The continuing evolution of various techniques has added bits of pleasure along the way but none has been so Soul-Satisfying as the SWEET SCHWOOSHING SKI STYLE of Duncan and Betty Reid. What a gift! What a Godsend! Who would have believed that, at my age, I could become a better skier than I ever was in the heyday of my youth. Yet, I am. What a pleasure! Jo-Ann said, "I feel I have so much better control of my skis I just start skiing much faster. No longer do my friends have to wait for me as I go schwooshing by.
