Blood Dragon Rising: Dragon Shadows Book 1 by G.S. Carline
All Lisette de Lille wants is an easy life. She’s not enthralled with getting married to a dull young nobleman, but it will secure her Caribbean island for France-for king and country, right? When her betrothed and his lover sell her to a pirate, all she wants is white-hot revenge. The pirate, Rocco, has a sinister motive for purchasing Lisette. An ancient curse turns him into a blood dragon each night of the new moon. He is driven to kill everyone who was there the night his wife was murdered. The spell will end when he kills Lisette.
When two souls are filled with such vengeful passion, is there any room to fall in love?
