Drakon’s Knight by NJ Walters
Genre Paranormal Romance/Dragon shifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Drakon Jericho Drake, the child of a pure-blood dragon and human, has a simple plan: Kill the leader of the Knights of the Dragon and start a war. Except, when he meets his target, Karina Azarov, she can’t remember who she is. Worst of all––he can’t kill her. His dragon side has just claimed the dangerous woman as his mate.
Karina has no idea why these Drakon’s have taken her to their home. And she most certainly does not understand why she’s so drawn to her captor. Maybe because he’s strong, intelligent, and caring, in his enigmatic sort of way. One thing she knows, he’s not going to hurt her. If only she could remember something from her past that would explain why these Drakon’s hate her so much.
But if her memory returns, mated or not, he may get his war.. And one of them will die.
Introducing Jericho Drake
Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Birthplace: A place that no longer exists
Profession: Assassin and Real Estate Mogul
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
What do you look like?
In my human, form I’m 6’10” with jet black hair and black eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern in red outlined in black. The red signifies I’m a fire drakon. The black is the same color of my eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Karina Azarov. Touch her and it will be the last thing you ever do.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I’ve lived a very, very long time. Whatever I need to learn I’ve taught myself or found someone to teach me. Drakons have phenomenal memories. That’s made it easier to adapt and change with the times.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I’ve slept on the hot desert sands and eaten figs. I’ve stayed in 5-star hotels and in the palaces of kings. And I’ve enjoyed both experiences. I have homes all over the world and plenty of money, but I could live without any of it. It’s easy to make money. It’s the people I care about who are important. Okay, and my custom Harley. I do love my bike. It’s the closest thing there is to flying without having to unleash my wings.
What is your family like?
I have four half brothers I’ve never met and three men I’ve called brothers my entire life. We may not be related by blood, but they’re my family. I would die for them.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m a drakon. Of course I can keep a secret. It’s what we do, who we are. Not many people know about us and we like to keep it that way.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For years, I wondered why my half brothers didn’t bother to look for me. I mean, they found one another but not me. First I was hurt. Then I was angry. Took me a few thousand years—okay four thousand—to get past it. I decided it was finally time to meet them. I concocted this entire elaborate plan. I was going to kill our greatest enemy and toss that in their face. Yeah, that plan didn’t exactly go as I thought it would.
What would you like to tell your writer?
You couldn’t make it easy, could you? After all my years of waiting, my fated mate had to be my greatest enemy. Only she can’t remember anything about her life. It messed me up for a while. I guess you had your reasons. And since I’m happy with the way things turned out, I’ll let you live.
