Release Blast... Sheri-lynn Marean's Casstiel



Casstiel
By Sheri-Lynn Marean
A Dragon Kind - 52 Realms Novel
Publish Date: August 30, 2018



Purchase:



As a bonded dragon shifter, Casstiel should have joined his soul mate in the afterlife when she was murdered. He did not. Fate changed the rules and tethered him to another female—a druid witch—the enemy.


For ten long years Casstiel lives in a haze of fury as he searches for the source of the hated connection. Only when they finally cross paths, he’s faced with a horrifying truth and finds himself protective and fiercely attracted to her. Even worse, she makes him question what it is he really wants.


Half human and half Fire-born, Ashara has never soared the skies or shifted into her dragon. Instead, she’s been held captive as a breeder for the Ilyium, heartbreaking more each time they take a child from her. Her only solace has been a connection to another that’s always kept her sane and warm in a cold, harsh life. When Asahra’s suddenly freed and confronted with her source of comfort; a large, sexy male who scares the hell out of her and wants her to release him, she is at a loss. As her heart awakens to a love she never dreamed possible, Ashara struggles to find her place in this new life, unsure of her desires, until a shocking discovery changes everything and may not be what anyone wants.


You will love this heart-wrenching tale of loss and redemption, so grab some tissues because your soul will sing as all things lead to love.


Excerpt:


Ashara’s fingers dug into thick muscle, holding on as tight as she could. She should be afraid of the large, wickedly-sharp talons holding her body close to the underbelly scales of the dragon carrying her through the air, but she wasn’t. Though she had no clue why. The male himself, when he was in his human form, terrified her.
Is that all? A voice taunted in her head. Okay, so he didn’t only terrify her, he also made her feel more alive than she’d ever felt in her life. Just more alive? Ashara wanted to snarl at the part of herself playing devils advocate. Yes Cass was extremely sexy, and yes he made her feel things she never thought to feel, but what female wouldn’t be attracted to him? She imagined his piercing green eyes, and his strong body, wondering what it would be like to have him as a lover.
Knock it off! Dragging her mind away from the sexy beast carrying her away from her daughter and into the unknown, Ashara wished she’d at least tied her hair back. Not wanting to loosen her grip, she cocked her head and attempted to rub the hair in her face out of the way with her shoulder.
It took twice, then she could finally see better.
She gasped, her gaze darting from one spot far below to another, trying to take in as much as possible. She should be exuberant, and part of her was despite her fear, for flying through the air like this was a most amazing experience. It certainly wasn’t one she’d ever imagined she’d be doing. Now, here she was once again, in the arms of a dragon speeding through the sky.
The first two times it had been so dark, she hadn’t been able to see much of anything. Though this time was just as unnerving, maybe even more so, considering who carried her.
A faint vibration deep inside of herself caught Ashara’s attention and she tensed up. What is that?
“It’s your dragon,” a voice filled her head, making her gasp. Then she realized it was Cass. A sudden warmth and feeling of safety swept through her, and the other, the one she’d always called beast, but had never felt quite so strongly, calmed.
My dragon … The one she’d chained, shoved deep down inside of her for the entirety of her life.

Cover Design by: MadHat Books


I’m a the catalyst to the power that has turned our world to chaos.

My father had to leave to keep me safe. I have been hidden with my mother’s clan since I was a young child. We were told my mother was killed by hunters while she was hunting.

That’s a lie. I felt her heartache and pain. I felt her loss of power as it was pulled from her. She died to keep me safe.

The hunters want me. They want the other two as well. I have to do all in my power to save us all. We have to find them while keeping what I am a secret.

Secrets, Lies and Deception.

We are all secrets, that once together will bring the world around and into balance once again.

We are the temperament, balance and serenity of our people.



You would think that having the ability to shift into a creature of the night would garner some respect, right? Wrong! At least not for these Guardians.

Tiberius and Horacio are Guardians. Shifters that live within the human world, but go unseen by the humans. They stalk the streets, slipping silently through the shadows, watching and waiting to intercede at the first sign of trouble. Humans have no knowledge of their existence as contact between Guardians and Humans is forbidden.

It is their most sacred law, established long ago when shifters first came to this world.

But even laws that are set in place to save your life can be bent, and when necessary, broken.

When Tiberius and Horacio save a human woman, Jasmine, from being attacked by rogue shifters, things change for both worlds. Their actions set in motion a series of events that were foretold many eons ago.  

Ancient prophecies speak of a union, a life, that will revive the past – a past that many in the supernatural community want to keep buried. But, buried secrets always find a way of coming back to bite us in the ass when we least expect it.

When these revelations come to light, Jasmine won’t be the only one in danger anymore.

Will they be able to survive the evil heading their way or will the dark forces opposing them destroy all they hold dear?

:: About the Author ::

I’m a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth... so I have a Texas-sized temper. Living and working in both states I’ve learned a lot about hard work, adapting to your surroundings and making the best of the path that you have been led down. My grandma Dollie once told me I would know what I was meant to do when it happened. She was right, as always.
    As with most book lovers, I am an avid reader. Reading has always been a hobby - a passion, really. Reading helps to expand the perimeters of one's mind. That is what got me to start writing as a kid. If I had paper...or a wall... I was writing. Words are a part of us all. Why not use them, right?
During the day I work as a ‘desk jockey’ and help the residents of my county navigate themselves around our little, but not too little country town. By night I am either blogging, doing PA work for some of my favorite authors or I am fighting with the voices in my head. (They can be stubborn at times.) It’s a way to cope and make the troubles of the day disappear, if only for a few hours. It’s a blessing and I am cherishing every moment. For that which is my creation, may become someone else's treasure.
Tomorrow is never guaranteed so I want to make sure I live the day as fully as possible.
