Cover Reveal: A Paranormal Mystery with Cowboys and Dragons by Mina Khan + giveaway

It’s so great to be celebrating my new release with I Smell Sheep! Baaa-wsome! I’m thrilled to share my novel, Wildfire: A Paranormal Mystery with Cowboys and Dragons, with you and your readers. Check out my cover:
Lynn Hana Alexander is a 25-year-old Japanese American shape-shifter haunted by guilt. She’s been questioning herself and her dragon abilities ever since she failed to save her grandmother. 

When her best friend is threatened by mysterious fires burning up acres of West Texas, Lynn rushes to the rescue determined not to fail again. However, with a tempting firefighter, a flirty city developer and dragon pheromones distracting her, how is she going to find the arsonist?

And worse: is her primary suspect a malicious rogue dragon or the love of her life?


Excerpt

Closing her eyes, Lynn Hana Alexander inhaled the dank smell of the bayou and summoned the change.

Heat crackled across her skin, filled her mind, as blue-green scales rippled over her body giving her tan a bronze sheen. Lynn’s core dissolved to molten lava, reformed and hardened. Muscles stretched and grew stronger, bones pushed and molded flesh. Nubs emerged from her back, elongated and flared into wings. A deep burn spread from her gut, igniting cell after cell, until she shook like a live wire juiced on raw power.

Her leathery wings flailed behind her as she stumbled around a bit before settling into the new weight. One would think a five foot one and half-inch Asian American woman would transform into a delicate, miniature-poodle type of dragon. Not so. In dragon-form, Lynn was seven feet of sharp scales, sinuous muscle and steely strength.

She raised her face to the moon and launched from the roof. Below her, Buffalo Bayou wound through downtown Houston glittering like a net of diamonds under the silver moonlight. The tremendous beat of her wings drowned out her worries for a moment.

  10. I'm sorry to say that I don't have a favorite dragon book series. I've read so many of them over the last 50 years that they've tended to just blend into one Magellan of characters.

  11. OMG! I can't wait to read "Wildfire: A Paranormal Mystery with Cowboys and Dragons". It appeals to me greatly and I LOVE the cover. I messed up in the Raffelcopter. In my excitement I accidentally put my e-mail addy where I should have put my Facebook name. So I'll put my name in here.
    I like Katie MacAlister's Dragon books.

  12. Don't actually have a single favourite but Anne McCaffrey's Pern Books, Mercedes Lackey's Dragon Jousters Series and Jane Yolen's Pit Dragon Chronicles tend to vie for top place in my favourite Dragon stories choice.

  14. The Dragon Kin series is my favorite. I love all her dragons but especially Fearghus. She writes such funny and sexy dragons.
    Thanks for the giveaway, story looks great.

  15. I loved the Dragon Kin series as well, and also "How To Date a Dragon" by Ashlyn Chase.. The Dragon Kin books i loved because they were both hilarious and dramatic in just the right doses and How To Date a Dragon is because Drake is a fireman and Bliss is snarky.. which strikes eerily close to my current real life relationship lol
