Dracones Revelations by Sheri-Lynn Marean
Dracones Series; Book 2
Proposed Publish Date: June 21, 2016
Published by: Sheri-Lynn Marean
At the young age of only seven, the Ilyium swept through Samarias’s village in a brutal massacre. Sami, his brother, his best friend, and her father fled their world for Earth, making a new home in Washington State. At nine, Sami’s father arrived and yanked his boys away from the security of their new home. At ten, they returned—broken, and silent.
Now at twenty-one, Sami continues to hide the secrets of the past, pretending everything is fine. But it’s all a lie. With his dragon powers awakening, Sami longs for freedom from the pain and guilt, along with a soul mate of his own.
When Sami recently infiltrated an enemy compound and witnessed the Ilyium send a woman to a fiery death, it hit him hard, but he can no longer pretend anymore.
Everything is not as it seems. After learning the woman is alive, and somehow connected to Sami, his world is turned upside down. Confused, angry, and with his emotions unraveling, Sami loses control. When he is called on to fly to Calgary to rescue someone else in trouble, strange things happen, and now he comes face to face with the demons of his past. Sami has some brutal decisions to make, possibly sacrificing what he desires most in order to do the right thing.
Dracones Revelations is the second book in the Dracones series for readers age 17+.
If you are a fan of dark, steamy paranormal romance, get Sami’s story today and be swept into the world of Dragons, Phoenix shifters, Night and Day Walkers, Magic, sensual heat and the revelations of Sami’s past.
Who is Samarias?
Sami is a sexy gentle giant. He’s sweet, kind, smart and hides a huge secret. A secret that has been tearing him apart and as the mysterious actions of the last few weeks start to reveal themselves, will Sami be able to survive all he learns?
“Well?” she asked, staring intently into his eyes. Sami saw her Phoenix’s fire blazing deep in her soul and it singed him, making him want more—want her, with every part of himself.
“Ah,” Sami said on a ragged breath as Hellfire pressed against him, trapping his cock between them, and stunning him as she pulled his lips back down to hers. Then her tongue was dancing with his as fire raced through him, out of control.
Hellfire slipped her hands under his shirt, her touch just about bringing him to his knees. Her hands were like brands trailing over his skin, heating everywhere she touched. She was the outdoors mixed with the scent before the storm, and she was driving him wild.
Never had Sami felt anything like it before. He moaned against her mouth, as she teased him with her tongue. Her hands were unbuttoning his jeans when she paused and pulled her lips from his, making Sami want to cry as she broke contact.
Looking down, Sami saw her surprise as she suddenly noticed his knives and handgun holstered on his hips. “How did I not see those earlier?” she asked absently as she studied him.
When he didn’t answer, she shrugged and her lips curled slightly making him groan. Then she unbuckled everything and slid his weapons to the floor, all the while keeping eye contact with him. When she reached for his pants, Sami sucked in a gulp of air. Down his pants went followed by his boxers. Eyes riveted on his erection, Hellfire licked her lips. “Hmm…you’re a big guy, aren’t ya?”
Sami quivered, need like he’d never before felt racing through him. With a grin, Hellfire stepped back and tugged her tight T-shirt off over her head. Having obviously noticed the desire in Sami’s eyes, she stopped and with another slow, seductive lick of her lips, she took her time unfastening her bra. Then she let it dangle in her fingers before dropping it to the floor.
Groaning at the sight of her perfect perky breasts, his cock reacted by bobbing as he struggled for control. It was all he could do to not grab her and pull her against him.
“This is what you want, isn’t it Sami?” she asked huskily as she wiggled her pants down the length of her legs, and stepped out of them. Damn! She wasn’t wearing any panties. Sami could only nod as he gazed hungrily at her.
Then she stepped up and while her breasts teased his chest, she tugged at his shirt until he pulled it off over his head. Pressing against him, the contact of skin against skin seared him, making him cry out for more as power hummed between them. Hellfire tugged his head down, meeting his lips with hers. Her tongue delved back into his mouth as if she couldn’t get enough of him. Sami’s hands found themselves on her back, touching her smooth skin. Pleasant shocks of electricity zinged through him while his cock throbbed between them.
“Tell me,” she murmured, her tongue teasing his, making him moan.
“Y-yeah…I want…you…” he barely managed. She was intoxicating and he wanted all of her.
****What others are saying…****
I was gifted my copy by this wonderful author.
Loving this series!! Characters are well written and very likable. If you like Dragon shifts, you will absolutely love this series. I highly recommend it! Hold on tight and enjoy the ride that is Dracones revelations. ~ Holly – Goodreads Reviewer
I cannot, for the life of me, see where these three are going, I really can’t and it’s driving me nuts! Neither can I see the bigger picture. I can’t see where Val Jean fits in, where Thaniel fits, where the new characters introduced here fit either. And that’s worse than these three!
BUT!!! This is NOT a bad thing, not at all. This is a GOOD thing. Because I’m not sure if I’ve missed it, or it hasn’t been totally laid out for me yet. I really don’t care. It’s keeping me on my toes, and it’s keeping me totally engaged with this series. ~ Debbie – Goodreads Reviewer

Sheri-Lynn Marean, Author of Dracones Awakening, the first book in the Dracones series, resides in western Canada with her husband, three kids, one dog, one cat, and two fish. Sheri did not grow up thinking she would one day be an author. Instead, she grew up riding and working with racehorses, drawing and selling her animal artwork, and of course reading.

Army Strong has a mission….to protect Southern Sassy at all costs.
The directive had been clear: Deeply embed himself in the fair town of Paradise, Tennessee, and keep one Melody Song Reardon from forgiving her fornicating ex-fiancé and keep her safe by any means necessary. Fortunately, Retired First Sergeant Callum Valentine had always been a man that got the job done. Unfortunately, nobody told him that while his ‘job’ might be as pretty as a picture, she could be ornery as a wet cat and had a stubborn streak a mile long. Now, he was battling baristas and dodging would-be assassins in an effort to keep one sultry southern minx safe.
He’d thought the Taliban would be the most dangerous force he ever face. Imagine his surprise when he realized that the radical extremists had nothing on one curvy little woman with a wicked edge to her tongue…. a woman that had somehow tangled herself around his cold heart.
Melody Song Reardon was done with men. After learning that the man she’d been going to marry was no better than a corporate Casanova in and out of the boardroom and bedroom, she’d decided that love just wasn’t in the cards for her. Which was fine. She was young, smart, and capable… and better yet, she had a dream and a plan: Opening her very own book/yarn store – Hooks & Books. She had the brains. She had the building. And now, she had a freaking bodyguard compliments of her interfering older brother?
She didn’t care how mouthwateringly handsome her so-called savior was; she didn’t need another controlling man in her life telling her what to do. At least, she hadn’t needed one…. until those nerve wracking hang-ups and strange notes took an ominous turn. Now, somebody wants her dead and the only thing standing between her and the Grim Reaper is one seriously gorgeous man named Callum Valentine. Falling in love again in the middle of her own personal apocalypse hadn’t been the plans…then again, the great thing about a plan is that it can change on a dime!
Cal watched her another minute. “You’re a stubborn little ball of fury, aren’t you?” he asked as he watched her try to attach the tool to the lug nut, wincing as the metal slipped for the second time in a row.
Melody took a deep breath before she slowly turned to face her tormenter. “I was brought up believing that a girl should be able to take care of herself. I forgot that lesson for a little while and almost made a mistake I could never undo with a man I’d rather forget. I’m not ever going to repeat that experience again. So, to answer your question, yes, I’m a stubborn little ball of fury. Now, will you please go on your merry way?”
Cal finally gave into the urge and laughed, earning himself a cold look from the woman currently on her knees. “Careful, Princess. I’m gonna get a complex here because it’s beginning to feel like you don’t like me very much,” he taunted her with a wink. Seeing her press her lips together tightly, he knew she was fighting the urge to scream bloody murder at him. Squatting beside her, he met her fiery gaze. “Cat got your tongue, Pretty Girl?”
“No,” she declared with a shake of her head as she looked from him to his jacked up truck. “Do you mind if I ask you a question?”
“Ask away, darlin’,” he invited silkily with a ready nod. “I’m an open book,” he declared, holding his muscular arms out to his sides. And it was true. The book on him was open; it just happened to be written in code, he thought to himself as he gave himself a mental pat on the back for his own wittiness.
Melody offered him a deceptively sweet smile. “Is it true that men use big trucks to compensate for smaller endowments in, well,… other more intimate areas?” she asked, dropping her voice to a conversational whisper as she gave his crotch a rather pointed look.
Cal guffawed. “Are you asking me if I’ve got a tiny dick, Princess? Because I can tell you with a hundred percent honesty that the size of my cock and the size of my truck are very directly related. They’re both big and bad, but if you don’t believe me, I’d be pleased to give you a private showing.”
Melody’s jaw dropped at his audacity. “You… you just can’t say things like that!” she blustered, blushing furiously as he laughed in her face.
“I just did. Besides, you started it,” he accused, propping his hands on his narrow hips as he leaned forward and stared her down. “Don’t dish it out if you can’t handle having it spoon-fed back to you, Princess.” Damn, Cal privately mused, he hadn’t had this much fun with a woman with her clothes on in years. He couldn’t help wondering how exciting she’d be with her clothes off. He definitely be making it a point to find that out as soon as humanly possible.
“I revert to my earlier statement. You are a pig,” she reiterated with a disgusted shake of her head, her ponytail flying over one shoulder to smack him in the face as she moved.
“Maybe, but you’re just mad that you can’t seem to get one-up on me. Not used to a man that will stand his ground and fight with you?” he asked, fishing for a response from her. He wanted to know just how much she’d reveal about her ex-fiancé in casual conversation. Her brother didn’t think there’d been any kind of physical abuse and based on her reactions to him, he tended to think RJ was right, but he wanted to be sure. Because if he was wrong, she wouldn’t need his protection because he’d simply kill the motherfucker and be done with it.
“My former fiancé didn’t fight. It was too low-class a thing for him to do. He used to call our arguments spirited debates. My ass, they were debates. Freaking moron. A fight is a fight, right?” she asked as she grunted with exertion while she tried to pry one of the lug nuts loose.
“Right,” he agreed with a nod, sighing as her tool slipped again. “Politicians have….what did you call ‘em? Spirited debates? Real men and women fight.”
“See, that’s what I thought, too. But maybe that was the problem,” Melody muttered as she twisted the tire iron sharply, silently cursing the tight bolt. “I always did think Bradley had political ambitions. God knows that it’s what his dear old mommy and daddy wanted for him,” she continued to growl through gritted teeth as she twisted the tire iron violently. “Eureka!” she shouted when the bolt moved a few millimeters. “Did you see that? It moved,” she yelped, as her body made a tiny celebratory shimmy.
Cal chuckled softly at her little dance. “Sounds like this Bradley fella was kinda a douche,” he surmised, carefully watching Melody’s face.
“That is the understatement of the frickin’ year. Heck, maybe the decade, too,” Melody muttered, lifting one hand to take a swipe at her sweaty forehead.
Edging toward her, Cal tried to make a grab for the tool in her hand. “Seriously, babe. Let me do that for you,” he demanded gruffly, afraid she was going to either damage the wheel well or herself with her rough use of the tool.
“I’m about done warnin’ you, Stranger, so I’ll try and be real clear one last time. You try to touch my tire iron again and I’m gonna introduce it to the side of that hard head of yours. Repeatedly,” she informed him grimly while she desperately tried to loosen the second lug nut. “And, for the record, let me just state that I am most certainly NOT your babe,” she huffed, panting with exertion.
He could see her energy waning and shook his head. “You’re completely right, you aren’t my babe,” he agreed, covering Melody’s icy hands with his as she growled fiercely at the tire. “Right now, you’re more of my pain in the ass, woman,” he continued, his hands tightening on hers as he helped her turn the lug nut. “This’d be so much easier if you’d just let me do it,” he stated again, afraid he was going to hurt her hand by squeezing it too hard. “Honest to God, sassy, sweet and stubborn is not the sexy combination I thought it would be on you.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sarah O’Rourke is actually two besties who live three states apart and write at all hours of the day and night! Born and raised in the Southern United States, they are overly attached to their one-click accounts, can’t make it through the day without copious doses of caffeine, and spend way too much time on the phone with each other.
Between them, they have four children and eighteen years of marriage…one to a super soldier and the other to egomaniac engineer. They hate empty chocolate wrappers and writer’s block, love to talk to readers…and oh, by the way, they write about strong, kick-ass women and hot alpha heroes!
Been a while since RWBR has reviewed a read. This was the perfect one to get back in the Reading/Reviewing groove! Personally I just love the Paradise Series. I have read some but not all of the collection thus far, but I definitely do have them on my TBR list!! As a Southern gal myself these reads feed my country roots and my romantic heart.
The two fabulous ladies that make up Author Sarah O’Rourke know their stuff! They know how to get right into a readers heart and soul. You must check them out of Facebook. Their own lives are just as entertaining as their stories. Promise, they will usually leave you with a grin or a giggle when you read their posts!
5.0 Rose Writing Rave
As a reader you never knew what was going to happen next. From what feisty words were going to come out of Melody’s mouth next to what innuendo Cal was going to try next. Then it was great to see see the residents of Paradise themselves. The McKinnon sisters, Zeke, and Maggie. Plus we are introduced to a few new residents too. The read just feels you with warm fuzzies, taking you right in to town as if you were a resident in Paradise. I know I sure wish I lived there with all the excitement they have, good food, and great friends. If you haven’t started this series or Tangled Hearts, then I say get to it! Excersize that 1-Click finger today!!!
2.5 Tear Rave
The love between Cal and Melody is just overflowing. The sweet words these two share with each other are words that any woman wants to hear in real life from her “Man”…
I just couldn’t help but have tears running down my face at how protecting, caring, and loving Cal is to Melody. He makes the absolutely most perfect Book Boyfriend a gal can have. I know I enjoyed my time with him.
4.0 Romance Rave
Ooohhh Cal, Cal, Cal… You are one hot alpha. The things you say to Melody, the innuendoes you tease her with. Man, you make me blush. It’s amazing how you can be so gentle and rough at the same time. Melody dear, you keep having those dirty thoughts about Cal. It’s all right. If I were you I would probably having them too…

~☆A man jogged a few hundred yards behind her. A ball cap shrouded the man’s face in darkness. He wore a black tee and black pants further adding to her discomfort. Chills zipped down her spine. Even though she was a werewolf, capable of defending herself, she was still a woman alone at night.
Why was he wearing all black? I thought you were supposed to wear bright clothes at night. Or is that just to keep you from getting hit by a car? She glanced up to the road that ran alongside the beach. Empty. Not a car or soul in sight. Perfect.
Rhea licked her dry lips and pushed her legs to move a little faster. Too bad she wasn’t in her wolf form. She could outrun the man in a heartbeat. As a human, she was fast, but not as quick as she’d like. Maybe he’ll go away. I’m sure he doesn’t want any trouble.
She peeked back over her shoulder. Crap. He’s gaining on me. What if he’s a werewolf too? Oh God. What if the pack found me? No.
Her calves burned as she pushed herself to run impossibly faster. She gritted her teeth together. I’m not going back. ☆~Rhea

Paranormal Romance Short Story
Author Bethany Shaw
Marcia fled her pack years ago. After moving from place to place she is now happily settled in the Big Apple until she is disturbed by the scent of a male wolf. Is he there to return her to the pack?
Declan lived his life serving his alpha until the day his sister is disgraced. On the run himself with his siblings he discovers the beautiful white wolf. Marcia. Now, to prove he’s not a threat…
Marcia yawned as Declan jammed the keycard into their hotel room door. The green light flickered, and he shoved the door open. Home sweet home, at least for the night. They’d stopped in some tiny town in Pennsylvania. At three in the morning, they were both exhausted. After taking subways and trains for much of the evening, they’d paid cash for a car and had driven for a few hours. They were out of danger, at least for the moment—she hoped.
“I think I’m going to hop in the shower,” Marcia said setting her purse down on the bed closest to the bathroom.
“This one’s your bag,” he said, handing her a plastic sack. They’d made a quick stop at a store to pickup a few necessities.
Her fingers grazed over his as she took her things from him. Declan’s hand lingered on hers, neither of them wanting to part. His calloused palm fit over hers perfectly, and she shivered, wondering how it would feel caressing her body. All afternoon, she’d been fighting their intense attraction. She’d needed to stay focused to ensure they escaped the city safely. Now it was just them, and one tiny hotel room.
Marcia took a step closer. Declan swallowed and hesitantly reached up to tuck one of her blonde locks behind her ear. I want him. “Shower with me.” She knew how to be forward. In the pack she’d been timid and fearful, but out on your own, you had to take charge. She had a feeling that if she showed Declan a little boldness his inner wolf would take over and he would show that confidence brimming beneath the surface. I just have to coax it out of him. “I want you to take me in the shower,” she whispered huskily.
Declan didn’t need any further encouragement. He tugged her to him, crashing his warm, hard mouth against hers. Marcia trembled with delight as his tongue parted her lips. I need more. She gripped the back of his head, pulling him impossibly closer so she could thrust her tongue into his mouth. He tasted like honey and sin. She wanted all of him, to feel him everywhere.
He broke away, peppering kisses from her jaw to her neck. His fingers fumbled with the buttons on her blouse, desperately trying to release them. She shrugged her shirt off and then tugged his tee up and over his head. Biting her lip, she skimmed her fingers down over his toned chest. Muscles rippled over his pecks, and his six-pack begged to be touched. Yum. Look at all these delicious muscles. Marcia took her time, exploring the hard curves of his body with the pads of her fingers. Exquisite.
Her hand trailed lower, and she grinned as she flicked the button of his jeans open. Slowly, she lowered the zipper, her eyes widening slightly as she took in the large bulge. A chill of anticipation zipped up her spine. I need to feel him inside of me. Curling her fingers around his boxers, she tugged him to her.
Declan’s hands went to her waist and then skimmed up her sides. Butterflies fluttered in her belly as his fingers tickled under her arms before gliding to her back. Her bra loosened, and she let the garment slip down her arms and fall to the floor. Declan stepped forward, ducking his head down, he took one of her breasts into his mouth. She groaned as his warm tongue circled over her areola. Yes. Yes. Yes.
“How long are you going to stare at that card before you call her?” Bray asked as he munched on a chip.
Declan glared at his brother who was sprawled across the couch. He’d stare at it as long as he needed to. His fingers twitched. Why can’t I pick up the phone and call her? I know I want to. He tapped the card on the counter top as he contemplated.
“Do it already.” Bray tossed a chip at him. “Your indecision is making me uneasy.”
“Knock it off, Bray,” Rhea called as she strolled into the front room. The one bedroom apartment they shared was tiny. Rhea had the only bedroom. Declan shared the tiny living room with Bray. It was all they could afford. Hopefully not for long, close confines with his siblings was driving him insane.
“She wouldn’t have given out her number if she didn’t want you to call. You’re worrying too much,” Bray continued.
“He does have a point,” Rhea conceded. “It’s been a week since you saw her. She’ll think you aren’t interested or left town if you don’t call soon.”
It’d been a long, agonizing week. Declan cursed under his breath and scrubbed a hand over his jaw. “I’m going out.” He didn’t wait for his siblings to respond. He trudged to the door and slammed it shut behind him.
Bray muttered something under his breath, but he couldn’t quite pick up on it. It was better that way. His brother could be an ass at times.
Not only did Declan not have experience with female wolves, but his experience with women in general was lacking. He’d picked up a few women out on the road, but he’d never gotten to know one before. Bray was outgoing, Declan was content to sit quietly by while his brother got all the attention. Times like these, he envied Bray’s ability to chitchat with anyone.
Now isn’t the time to think about Bray. He shook his head and ran a hand through his hair. Ambling down the stairs, he pushed the door open and blinked against the blinding sunlight. Declan placed his hand on his brow, using it as a visor so he could look down the street.
People bustled across the busy sidewalk. Car horns blared and vehicles whizzed by. Smog tainted the air, making it heavy, and harder to breathe. He doubted anyone else noticed the poor air quality. They were too rushed to reach their destinations. Slowly, he moved down the stairs and onto the busy street. If I can’t call her, maybe I should seek her out. Yeah, your last meeting went so well. It’s easier to talk in person. Before he lost his nerve, he raised his hand up to hail a cab. He needed to see Marcia.
