Not to mention that Ben can still remember how the two actors’ scorching off-screen romance went up in flames.Undeterred, Ben goes forward with the project, recruiting Ash and Lee by dangling very attractive carrots before them. The cameras start to roll, but the main action takes place off set. It’s never easy to work with an old flame, or to handle the renewed feelings that are bound to come out. As two men whocould never get enough of each other deal with a rekindled attraction, they discover that when it comes to love, there’s always time for a retake. a Rafflecopter giveaway

Debut Release – Never Deal with Dragons by Lorenda Christensen
2012 Golden Heart Winning manuscript, now published with Carina press

Consoling a sobbing dragon and serving pig buffets are just part of the job for Myrna Banks. Working for a mediation firm, it’s her job to get humans compensated for damages caused by the dragons who now rule. But her “typical” day is interrupted by Trian Chobardan, an old flame who sneaked out of her bed two years ago, taking her heart and a handful of classified documents with him.

Myrna would love to show Trian the door, but he’s been sent by North America’s reigning dragon lord for help negotiating a truce with a powerful rival to avert war. Myrna agrees to help, even though she’ll be stuck with Trian as a partner.

As the two work together, Myrna finds Trian to be surprisingly supportive – and still irresistibly attractive. Though her brain tells her not to forget his betrayal, her body feels differently. When they learn the enemy dragon lord is planning something no one could have imagined, Myrna has to learn who she can trust before she loses not only her heart, but her life.
