Excerpt:Dragon Lost: A Dark Kings Novella by Donna Grant

February 25, 2020
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Donna Grant comes a new story in her Dark Kings series…

Destinies can’t be ignored. No one knows that better than Annita. For as long as she can remember, it's been foretold she would find a dragon. A real-life dragon. She’s beginning to think it was all some kind of mistake until she’s swimming in one of the many caves around the island and discovers none other than a dragon. There is no fear as she approaches, utterly transfixed at the sight of the creature. Then he shifts into the shape of a thoroughly gorgeous man who spears her with bright blue eyes. In that instant, she knows her destiny has arrived. And the dragon holds the key to everything.

All Royden wanted was to find an item his brother buried when they were children. It was supposed to be a quick and simple trip, but he should’ve known nothing would be easy with enemies like the Dragon Kings have. Royden has no choice but to trust the beguiling woman who tempts him like no other. And in doing so, they unleash a love so strong, so pure that nothing can hold it back.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

“Who are you?” she repeated, this time with authority in her voice.

Royden didn’t want to like her, but he did. It took serious courage to stand up to a stranger in a cave, much less one who had used magic. He’d probably have to get Guy to come and wipe the mortal’s memory of him. So much for no one at Dreagan knowing he was gone. Shite. This wasn’t turning out as he’d hoped.

He threw her question back at her. “Who are you?”

“Annita Dragoumis. This is my family’s land, and you’re trespassing.”

There was something about her bossy tone that went straight to his cock. Which was the last thing he needed. “I willna be long. I just need a few hours.”

“For what?”

He sighed, doing his best to keep his patience. “I’m looking for something.”

“Sure you are. The fact remains that you aren’t supposed to be here.”

Royden was finished playing games. He knew he was in for a world of problems now that a mortal hadn’t just seen him in dragon form but had also seen him shift. He needed to turn the tables on her and quickly.

“You’re in a dark cave with a man you doona know, and you’re issuing demands?”

Her eyes narrowed. “You aren’t Greek.”

“No’ in the least,” he stated.

For a heartbeat, she stared at him as if trying to figure out his accent. “Welsh?”

“Now that stings, lass.” Though he was impressed that she knew English.

“Scottish,” she said with a smile. “You’re from Scotland.”

Royden bowed his head. “Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, it’s time for you to leave and forget you’ve seen me.”

Annita shook her head of dark brown hair. “I can’t do that.”

She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind or stand up to an unknown man in a cave, and she could speak fluent English. Who was this woman?
