Book Description:

A Knight bred in the blood of battle…

Damon DeGracey is the Dragon of Blackmoor. Darkly mysterious, a cunning tactician of war, and William the Conqueror’s fiercest knight, he is a warrior any King would gladly claim as his champion. In a land awash in bloodshed and treachery, the Dragon must hunt and slay those responsible for the murder of his family while trying to keep the rebels from overthrowing the newly crowned King’s throne.

A sword forged in mystery…

Its ancient etchings and flame red stone draw Anthropologist, Gabriella DeVoux like a moth to a dragon’s fierce blaze. Its secrets she must know…its master’s hand she unwittingly craves. Will history yield to her its secrets or will the Dragon elude her in time’s lost pages?

A love that time cannot destroy…

Now that he’s found her, he will stop at nothing to have her – to keep her. And she will do anything to keep him safe. In these dark times an even darker treachery abounds. Will their love survive the hands of fate?


About the Author:

Author K.A. M’Lady lives a few stone throws from corn fields, chaos and congestion; all lying on the outskirts of the many burbs of Chicago. KA M’lady spends her days calculating life expectancies, mortality and the certainty of death and taxes while in her free time the dead wander freely, buy shoes, homes, the occasional odd business or two and, if you even think of charging them too much in taxes…well, let’s just say the tax man may never come back.

But if he does he might just shamble a bit. An All Romance eBooks bestselling author, K.A. M’lady’s work has been described as scary, descriptive, beautiful, dark, frightening, addictive, sexy and believable. She loves to read paranormal romances, watching horror movies, westerns on Sundays with her husband, playing fetch with her pocket beagle, Chevy and buying weird shoes. Her friends call her eccentric, her family refuses to comment.

She’s been lost in the world of fiction since she was a small child, and frankly, never wants to be found—at least not any time soon. “Myth and magic builds dreams and inspirations – and in an insane world, it is our dreams that spark the revolution of change. No matter which world is being conquered. Within our dreams – all things are possible.”

History Take Me Away….

With every story an author writes, we choose a setting, a time, a special place in the universe within which to place our characters; be it modern day, the Roman Empire or, my personal favorite – medieval times.

However, one must always be carefully selective in our choices.  Pack too lightly and you’ll be running around the coast of Kent naked with a mad army of marauding knights hot on your trail.  Pack too much and you’re suddenly the crazy bag lady at the RenFaire – five skirts whirling, arms akimbo, and a few teeth short of proper bridge work.  The trolls might be impressed but a waiting lady you might remain.

As with any trip, you must always remember to pack accordingly and prepare for the ride ahead.  It’s not just a trip across the pond that you’re characters are taking; there are customs to contemplate.  Dress codes and means of travel to be taken into consideration.  Even the event of eating can be a course in the archaic as it no longer remains just the mundane affair of fueling the body.

Then of course, there are the knights themselves…and oh, how we love our knights!  Be they big and brawny, unruly, broken, growly, cantankerous and swoon-worthy.  By their sheer force of will and stamina, the pure Alpha males that they are, we swoon at their first sighting, we quake at the mention of their name and we moan for their touch.  Yes, it is the embodiment of all that they represent in their armor and out of it that sets our hearts aflame.  Whether they’re on their fierce steeds, or they’re saving the world and capturing the maidens, it is their history, their vigor and their chivalry that captivates us and captures our hearts and our imaginations.

So, come, take a walk with me through time into the Black Forest where men were dragons and hungry for more than adventure.

About the Author:

I am the Co-Author to Awakenings: The Wrath Saga, a paranormal drama likened to Big Brother meets The Real World, of the Preternatural.

I’m currently working on the sequels to In Dreams… Due for release in 2014.
I have a mind that is easily distracted and prone to wandering. Tangents are my forte, and if you think my characters are going to fit a cookie cutter shape of any kind, think again. They live, they love, they eat, sleep and fuck. I believe that people are inherently sexual creatures and my characters be they human or something all together else are no exception.

I don’t adhere to a single genera, I toe the line on several and wouldn’t presume to be a master of any. So I suppose you could call me jack-of-all-trade-paperbacks.
I am a truth seeker, in my life, in my work. I’d apologize for it, but I kinda can’t help m’self. It’s my best and worse personality trait, well mostly, being Bi-Polar I guess you could say that is the worse. But I believe that the disorder has made me, well… Me.

I have taken this life and twisted, carved, shaped and molded it in to the worlds of my characters. Albeit with a chainsaw, and it has made all the difference

I’ve got a chance to meet Amara from In Dreams….The Solitary Road, here is what she had to say. Hope you all like her as much as I do.

1. What is your name? Do you have a nick name?
My name is Amara Dagon, I don’t have a nick name, although I came dangerously close to being called Girlie on one occasion.

2. What is your hair colour and eye colour?
My hair is Raven’s Blue black and my eyes are a reflecting shade of Cerulean Blue.

3. What kind of distinguishing facial feautures do you have?
Hmm, I don’t know that I have and distinguishing features, my eyes and hair tend to be noticed the most frequently. Mostly it’s the hair. *smiles proudly*

4. Do you have a birthmark or scars and where is it. If scars where did they get it from?*blushes I’ll admit to a birthmark on y lower back that resembles a couple of cherries. But I’m not sure if they are still visible, as my back was recently mangled by some nasty bugger while I was in the caverns near The Braithorian Mountains. Couldn’t tel ya what it was cuz I kinds melted the fucker.

5. Who are your friends and family?
I’d  really rather not talk about my home if that’s okay. *shifts uneasily*

6. Who are the people you are closest to, who do you wish to be close to?
Those who mattered most to me are gone. Taken from me by those who should have protected me.

7. Where were you born? Where did you live since then? Where is home?
I don’t really talk about that, for now I’m just moving through the world, with not much more than the bag on my back, my sword and my bow.

8. What is your biggest fear. Who had you told this to. Who would you never tell this to, and why?
I’ll not be sharing that anytime soon. The last time I went there people died…

9. Do you have a secret?
I have many. That’s what makes them secrets.

10. What makes you laugh out loud?
A smile from a child.

11. What is one strong memory that has stuck with you from childhood. Why is it so powerful and lasting?
I have memories of my father’s death… Fires haunt my dreams keeping me from rest… Those memories of smoke and blood will never leave me, nor will the guilt of my hand in them…

12. You’re going for a night out. Where do you go? What do you wear? Who will you be with?
Every night is a night out when you travel like a dandelion on the wind. If I’ve stoped somewhere I often try to find a good place to nosh, and get a drink where there may be a bed and a bath nearby.

13. What do you most value in friends?
Honesty, respect, and an open mind are a great foundation for any one I keep company with.

14. Which words or phrases do you over-use?
Hmm. I don’t really know. I’m prone to “It is what it is”

15. If your character could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
The curses of my birth…

16. Which talent do you have or wish to have?
I am a spellcaster by birth and  I wish that everything I touched didn’t eventually burn…
