New PNR Release – Dragon’s Mate

I have a new PNR release this week, featuring my dragon shifter heroes. Dragon’s Mate is the fourth book and the third romance in my DragonFate series of paranormal romances – this series continues after Dragonfire but, this time, the heroines have powers of their own.

Dragon's Mate, book 4 of the DragonFate series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

Her kiss will shatter realms…

Dragon shifter and artisan blacksmith Hadrian is determined to strengthen his fellow Pyr warriors in the battle against the Fae by forging them talons of steel. He won’t be seduced by the sensual promise of a firestorm that has to be a spell—even to help a beautiful warrior escape the clutches of the Fae Queen.

Rania is a swan-maiden and Fae assassin, who has made a deal with the Dark Queen’s will to break the curse over her brothers. All she needs to do is kill Hadrian, but this dragon shifter won’t die easily. It’s more than dragon vitality that helps him survive her lethal kiss, but Rania refuses surrender to his potent touch for any price when so much hangs in the balance.

But the Dark Queen’s betrayal compels Rania to ally with the vital dragon shifter in a last-chance effort to save her brothers and herself. Can Hadrian unfurl the painful secrets of Rania’s past to give them a future? Can Rania help Hadrian to realize the power of his own legacy to defeat the Fae? When barriers between realms are destroyed, can love conquer the obstacles between these destined mates—and create a new world for their unborn son?

Kiss of Fire, book #1 of the Dragonfire Novels series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

One kiss can change the course of destiny…

When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.

Wyvern’s Mate, book one of the Dragons of Incendium series, is 99 cents!

Wyvern's Mate, book one of the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

Troy will do whatever is necessary to earn his freedom from solitary confinement on the penal colony of Xanto, even assassinate a princess of Incendium. Being a MindBender, he has a serious advantage as a predator and thinks the princess in question doesn’t have a chance. Only one of them can survive and Troy knows who it will be—until he meets Drakina.

Royal dragon shifter Drakina has a quest of her own, to seduce her destined mate and conceive the crown prince of Incendium. Her father will free her from all other responsibilities if she completes this one task. Drakina craves her independence enough to seduce the unattractive Terran who is the Carrier of the Seed. She’s sure it will be a quick seduction—until she meets Troy.

Worlds collide when Troy and Drakina meet, and passion flares. The attraction is so powerful that they both choose to put their goals aside for one night of passion together. When their respective secrets are revealed, will the truth turn one against the other? Or will destiny allow this star-crossed pair to save each other and their unborn son?


“WYVERN’S MATE is a quick read; a fast paced novella length story of romance and love; duty and honor; magic and dragons…The premise is entertaining-almost science fiction is its presentation; the characters are colorful and animated; the romance is a quick build to a happily ever after. A wonderful start to a new series.”

Downloadable Booklists

Inspired by an article I saw online, I’ve been creating some booklists for you. These are PDF files that you can download and print out to keep track of which books you’ve read and which ones you want to read. They also list each of my series in reading order.

Here’s a screenshot of the top of the Delacroix list, so you can see what they’re like:

Editions with a red dot are no longer available. Editions with a green dot are available. There’s a list at the end of the abbreviations used for print editions.

Each list “lives” on my appropriate sub-genre website, so the second link will take you to Delacroix.net.

Website Reorganization

I’m updating my websites (again – this feels like an endless task sometimes) in order to add some features. First, I’m updating to the new WordPress block editor, which should improve how the sites look, especially on your phone.

While doing that, I’m adding more buy links, particularly for print editions, and updating to cool little buy buttons.

Thirdly, this update allows me to add Paypal buttons for you to buy signed print books directly from me.

Just One Fake Date, book one of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

I’ve finished the updates on my contemporary romances, so if you look at the individual book pages for The Coxwells, Flatiron Five Fitness and Flatiron Five Tattoo, you’ll see those features. I’m offering both individual books for sale and series bundles of print books – they’re both listed on each book page. On the Store page, you’ll find the series bundles only. Once I get this update done across all of my sites, I’ll dig out my inventory of original print editions and add them to the book pages. I think, for example, that I still have some of the Berkley editions of the Coxwells in trade paperback.

Wyvern's Mate, book #1 in the Dragons of Incendium series of paranormal romances by Deborah Cooke

The final change will affect my other sites: I’m going to move the Dragons of Incendium to the Dragonfire Novels site, which will leave me with three websites to manage instead of four. All the PNR will be on the Dragonfire site. I’ve already got the individual books there, under their own Incendium tab – and I learned that there’s a new cool option to display audio samples from Soundcloud, like the one for Wyvern’s Mate. I’ll do the PNR site next, then the Delacroix site last.

I’ll let you know when everything is done!
