Title: Taken by a Dragon
Possessed by a need to save a beautiful Amazon warrior from the vision he witnessed, Loke snatched her from the midst of the battle between the Third and Fifth realm of the demons, and carried her to his home deep in the black mountains of Hell to protect her. But as the fierce little female awakens, he finds she’s anything but grateful, and his dragon instincts roar to life to warn she might be more to him than an enemy—she might be his fated female.
Anais remembers meeting a handsome warrior in the heat of battle, a man who was her enemy but who looked at her with eyes that held dark heat and wicked promises. When she wakes to find that same dragon shifter has taken her captive, desire is the last thing on her mind, but escaping him to return to Archangel, the hunter organisation she works for, sounds less than appealing when he reveals the reason he took her—to stop her from dying.
Can Loke protect Anais from the dangers of his realm and how far will he go to save her from the future he keeps witnessing? Can Anais resist the fierce attraction that burns between them as hot as fire and stay true to Archangel or will her heart be taken by the dragon?

Just when I was starting to get a little bored with the series, Taken By a Dragon draws me back in and gets me excited all over again.
DRAGONS! Who doesn’t love dragons?! A blue dragon on top of it all. The author has really caught my attention with Loke. Hot and yummy, he has this fierceness and innocence about him I just adore. Anais is no slouch as a huntress. Their passion and romance mixed in dragons, rescues and battles gave the whole story this epic feeling that I absolutely loved. It had a nice build up to all the plots, which I felt gave me a glimpse of what future stories may come as well as what was happening now. There’s a few twists along the way that I found surprising as well as unexpected. The ending was fantastic and a little naughty (Dragons do like sparkly objects. Hee-hee!) that left me smiling.
On a random side note…that cover is freaking awesome!
After the past few books being all about the felines, a book with dragons is a refreshing change. And not just dragons, we get to go back to the original roots of the story with Archangel, and characters from the previous titles (I just love when that happens!). You can definitely tell this series is going somewhere when you go back to the beginning. This seventh entry certainly proves this series needs to be read in order. There’s a little bit from each book represented here so if you don’t want to get lost, read them all in order. It so worth it. What will the next book be about? Bleu? The Angel with no name? Who knows but I cannot wait.
Vanessa: Would you please start by telling us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a British paranormal romance writer and I’ve been writing since 2005. I’ve written over sixty books in my career as a writer, and around fifty of those are still available. I love to write passionate paranormal romances, with high-octane action, intense emotion, and heroes who will make your toes curl!
At the moment, I have three series on the go, but others I have completed. One of the completed series is the Vampire Erotic Theatre series, with the delicious heroes of Vampirerotique, London’s premier naughty theatre for vampires. The ongoing series are the Her Angel series with my take on sexy passionate angels determined to protect their women from a terrible game between Heaven and Hell, and the Vampires Realm series, which is packed with twisting plots, vampires to die for, and is a huge world encompassing ten books at present. My newest series is Eternal Mates, which is set in the same world as the Vampire Erotic Theatre but it takes a look at the wider world outside the theatre, with all manner of fae and demon species, and plenty of hot-blooded alpha heroes determined to have their mates.
Jacque: What books or authors have inspired your writing?
I’m not inspired by other authors or books. I’m inspired by my readers and my love of writing. I am happiest when I’m writing and creating new adventures for my beloved characters. It’s my passion for it that keeps me inspired, and my wonderful readers. They really inspire me to keep writing new books, but sometimes they leave me a little daunted too. The expectations can be so high but I have to remind myself that I have to write the story my way, and I can’t please everyone.
Stormy: What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I don’t really have any. I’m a pretty straightforward person, which I guess is because I’m a very logical person. I know that sounds at odds with being a creative person too, but it’s the way I’m put together. I have a logical mind, which is great for when I’m building websites and newsletters and books, as I’m good with programming languages and other things. But I also have a very creative mind. I think my logical and creative sides are at odds sometimes. My quirkiest habit would have to be the fact that despite being a creative person, I cannot work when I’m surrounded by mess on my desk. It has to be nice and clear and neat… which I suspect is my logical side shining through.
Megan: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
I love anime and manga, both Japanese in origin, and can happily sit watching a new anime series or reading a new manga, letting the world drift by unnoticed by me. I also have a passion for playing PlayStation games, especially ones such as Destiny, Assassin’s Creed (I had always wanted to be an assassin), Uncharted, Tomb Raider, and the Final Fantasy games. I like exploring the worlds and the characters, and unravelling mysteries during the adventure.
Stormy: If you could visit any time period and location (past or future) when and where would you go?
I’d love to go back to the Georgian / Regency period, but only if I’m wealthy or have the status to move in the circles that we see in the classic romance books adaptations. I’d love to attend a ball in those times and mingle with the gentlemen and ladies.
Gaele: Where do your ideas come from? Do you set out to ‘outline’ a plot and situations, or do you let the characters take you along for the ride, and clean it up later?
I’m never sure how the ideas come. I get inspired by anything. From a song, to something on TV, to something I read, or even just taking a walk. I have a very hyperactive muse and he’s always throwing new story ideas at me and inviting new characters to wander into my head.
I do know I’m a plotter. I write outlines for all of my books, and put together character profiles for all major characters too, and gather information about the world. I’m very thorough in my preparation. My outlines are compiled from all the notes / scenes I’ve written down while working on other stories and then filling in the gaps. Sometimes, my outlines end up huge! The outline for Claimed by a Demon King, which is the second book in the Eternal Mates series, was around 25,000 words. That shows you how serious I am about plotting before writing. The outline was a quarter of the length of the first draft of the book! It really helps me work in any plot twists and misdirection if I plan it all out in advance. I do let the characters have their way at times, but normally the book follows the outline.
Sometimes characters like to colour outside of my lines though and I let them get away with it because it’s never wise to attempt to cage one of my heroes when he decides he wants to do something different to what we had decided!
Pansy: Can you tell us about your current work in progress, perhaps you could share a favorite fact or piece of fascinating information about it?
At the moment, I’m between books. I’ve been planning a few different ones and I’m about to begin writing Marked by an Assassin. That will be book 8 in the Eternal Mates series, but like many of the others, it acts as a stand alone really. We’ll see familiar faces in this one again. I think what I’m most looking forward to is writing a certain scene that actually happens in Taken by a Dragon, but involves the hero of Marked by an Assassin. I’ll get to write that same scene from Harbin’s point of view. It should be interesting.
Gaele: With all the characters you have created – are there any that you feel need to have another book or series to get their “story told”?
There are a few I would love to write more for. I could probably write a whole new novel for Erin and Veiron from my Her Angel series… or Rosalind and Vail from my Eternal Mates series. There are definitely a few couples that I must catch up with in a short story or novella sometime.
Christina: If you could speak to any one type of animal, what would it be, and what would you ask it?
Cats. I’d love to speak to cats. Big, small, any of them. It would be awesome. It would also help me to communicate with my fur baby that attacking my feet when she doesn’t get her way doesn’t make me any more inclined to feed her / play with her / let her out. I’d love to know what cats think about us though.
Vanessa: I’m a bit of an author stalker and I love going to signings and conventions. Do you have any upcoming appearances?
None planned. I’ve never done a convention / signing. Readers ask me to go to them, but I’m a bit shy. I think I would probably have a nervous fit. I’m attending an author-only gathering in San Francisco at the end of February, so last month when this goes out. It should be fun. So far, I’ve only done author gatherings… maybe one day I’ll gather the needed courage and do a convention appearance, but I’ll probably go as a reader and just meet up with other readers and bloggers.
