This quarantine has given me a few gifts that I wasn’t expecting. The first being precious time with my family that I am truly grateful for. It has also given me time to discover the crazy creatures in my backyard. I planted the flower beds with bee and butterfly attracting plants and so far it hasn’t disappointed. What I was not even thinking about, was all the other cool bugs it would attract. The fat fuzzy, and very territorial, bumble bees, crazy colorful beetles, and the funny little spiders that I visit everyday in the same spot, lunging at tiny flies that happen to get within reach. I found a cluster of eggs under a wisteria leaf, that I have no clue what they are, but good or bad, I am excited to find out who they are. One egg just hatched and it looks like a caterpillar of some sort.  I have to go to Target today for pet food, so I will pick up a magnifying glass to get a better look. I also noticed the lady bug population exploded, so they had eggs somewhere amongst the foxgloves. Unfortunately the foxgloves were being taken over by aphids, so I bought a package of ladybugs to help clear them out. YUCK!! Some bugs are cool, others not so much.

Excerpts from Dragon’s Gap Book 1 (An Alpha Female Dragon Shifter Romance)

Sage demanded before the great doors made from the hardest iron wood that had withheld marauding armies with battering rams, blew apart like kindling.

Reighn, the Dragon Lord has at last found his soul shadow, an improbability a half witch half wolf.”

Sage, saw the hole, saw the never ending abyss and still she jumped feet first into love as a shifter, instinct drove her mating or at least the willingness to chance a mating, her witch side recognized power and felt the draw of spirits as they met, melded and entwined forever to be bonded together throughout eternity.
Reighn states his ultimatum to the stubborn Dragon Kind.
I am your Lord.
The Lord of all Dragons!
That has not changed.
I have already said this once this week but it bears repeating.
You have no voice here.
You have no rights here.
The only voice that matters is mine!
The only rights you have are the ones I allow you.
As of now I have removed all your privileges.
You will comply or you will be banished.
There is no other option.
“You have twenty four hours to decide. If in that time you have not sworn fealty to me and the dragon nation I will decide for you. Make no mistake, this is going to happen. With or without you. Now I suggest you go home and make your decisions.”
