A Dragon's Guide to Romance with Valerie Twombly and Caleb

 Thank you for having me here today, I am beyond thrilled. I thought it would be fun to have Caleb, the star of Fatal Desire, do the guest post today. So allow me to introduce you to one sexy dragon. Caleb, the spotlight is all yours. 

Wow. Great, I’m freaking thrilled. This should be a ton of fun since I was told by my creator I had to be nice and no swearing. WTH? She also insisted I talk about romance. The woman is pure evil I tell you. Who in their right mind would ask a dragon to write about romance? One thing I’ve learned is there’s no point in arguing with her so it was either do it or burn this place to ash. Be happy I didn’t choose the latter.

So, what does a dragon find romantic you may wonder? First off, the things I can do with my tongue will cause…


*sigh* Writer lady is giving me the evil eye and said I had to keep it clean. “Fine!” *mumbles under breath*

One thing a dragon likes to do is dominate. Shocking I know. I for one think it’s romantic when the female takes the lead in bed. I’m a liberal man and am more than happy to let her have her way.

“Now what?”

*long pause* “Christ sake’s woman. You asked a dragon about romance, what did you expect?” *growls* I’m going to ignore her and give you the low down.

Dragons love sex and lots of it. It’s rare we stick with the same woman more than a few times. Now don’t go getting your panties in a bunch. It’s simply the nature of the beast. However, when she comes along. The one chosen only for us, all others cease to exist. Nothing in the world matters except her pleasure and happiness. Every breath we inhale is only for her. Every choice we make is with her in mind. We will kill for her and die for her and should she ever depart, we will become a shell of our former self. Only living because duty says we must.

That is romance from a dragon’s perspective. Now I suggest you buy the damn book since I practically tortured my creator into writing it.

Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take the slave as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death. His only choice is to grant her freedom.

Lileta wanted to kill Caleb, but when she is freed by this tempting male, her anger turns to a desire that can only prove fatal. Even if she could claim him as her own, her dark past makes her unworthy of his love.

When their paths continue to intertwine, spiraling them to the brink of passion, can they resist the yearnings burning within them, or will they submit to their fatal desire?

About the author

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying, “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find.

Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was hooked.

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.

Valerie is a member of Romance Writers of America and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Romance Writers. She is also a member of Coffee Talk Writers and the Coffee Talk website –a site designed to support established writers and foster new talent.


  1. Thanks so much for having Caleb and I over today. I know he can be a bit of a handful.
