Here’s the reader letter from the new edition—and the new cover. It will be available initially from my online store, and then at the major portals in September 2015. It will be included also in Here Be Dragons: The Dragonfire Companion in both print and digital editions.
If you bought this short story in its previous edition, you don’t need to buy it again. There are no major differences in the text: it just has a new cover.
Harmonia’s Kiss is a short story that grew from a pair of scenes edited out of the Dragonfire novel Whisper Kiss. This is the tale of Dragon’s Tooth Warriors in their search for their lost past, and also the story in which Drake meets Veronica. I really liked the insight these scenes offered into Drake’s character in particular and developed it into a longer story. My publisher decided to release it in a digital-only edition, an option that I initially found exciting. The experience, however, proved to be a very frustrating one. Some of you could not buy the digital short, even though it should have been available throughout the world in English. I was unhappy that the short story didn’t really have a cover for the longest time—just a picture of me in my publisher’s logo—and also thought it was priced too high for a short story. Additionally, many of you read only in print, and this story was not available in that format.
All’s well that ends well, though. I’m very excited to have the opportunity to bring this Dragonfire short story to you in a new edition and to be able to offer it at a more competitive price. This edition of Harmonia’s Kiss has Drake on the cover, and it will be included in Here Be Dragons: The Dragonfire Companion in both the print and digital editions of that volume.g
You can find all of the Dragonfire books listed in order on my website.
Also, the Dragonfire cycle of paranormal romances is now complete with the publication of Firestorm Forever. This book is enormous, the biggest novel I’ve ever written, and includes three firestorms—you’ll be pleased to see that the spark of the firestorm gives Drake and Veronica the chance to build the future they both desire. You can read an excerpt from Firestorm Forever on my website.
Of course, there are more dragons in my future and in yours. My next series of paranormal romances featuring the Pyr will be called DragonFate: there’s an excerpt from the first book, Hot Blooded, at the end of Firestorm Forever but also on my website.

Until next time, I hope you have plenty of books to read—and maybe a dragon shifter hero to keep you warm at night!
All my best—
