HERE THERE BE DRAGONS, Sunscapes Trilogy 2
(scifi romance by Michelle O'Leary & The Wild Rose Press)
I'm so excited to bring to readers this second installment in the Sunscapes Trilogy! This is a revised edition from the original, with some new material but the same basic storyline. Happy Reading!

~Excerpt: Fairytale Prince~
Cassie slipped her arm through his, trying not to lean into his heat and strength. Grateful for his steady presence, she again became aware of all the staring faces. She also couldn’t remember the last time she’d tottered around in high heels. The cursed things were like negotiating through a constant earthquake. Any second now she was going to take a header and do a face-plant on this shiny wood floor. Wouldn’t that give their audience a show?

"At least they’re not laughing and pointing, yet,” she muttered, watching for the next pitch and roll of the floor.

“You mean at the clown on the arm of the most gorgeous woman in the room?”

She flashed Nick a disbelieving glance, then continued her surveillance of the deceptive surface under her wobbling ankles. “I think they’re taking bets on how soon I trip and fall on my face.”

“My credit’s on five minutes.” His voice was warm with humor.

Cassie stopped in her tracks, a strange pain lodging just under her ribs. She didn’t raise her head, gaze fixed on the floor in front of her feet. “Please don’t make fun of me,” she whispered.

His arm tightened on hers for a second. Then he shocked her speechless by sinking down to kneel in front of her. Settling back on his heels with hands resting on thighs, he lifted his gaze to hers, expression solemn. “I wasn’t making fun, Cass. I’m just worried about you. Those shoes are dangerous. Would you let me take them off?”

Her body reacted as if he’d just asked to strip her naked.

Nick Givliani, inspector for the FPA, is investigating the Shays. He discovers their employee Cassie Draegen is more than she seems. Brilliant, inventive, and much too sexy for his peace of mind, she becomes his top suspect. He needs to find out what she’s up to before it’s too late.

As the Shays’ resident genius, Cassie is their secret weapon. Her work is at a critical stage and the last thing she needs is an FPA inspector breathing down her neck. Avoiding Nick would be the smart thing to do, but he’s as persistent as he is gorgeous. If she’s not careful, his relentless pursuit and her growing attraction might upset all their plans.

As Nick draws closer to the truth, intrigue and desire bind them together in a complicated knot. Will Cassie be able to complete her work with the Shays, or will Nick bring it crashing down upon their heads?

~Last Chance, Sunscapes Trilogy 1~
The Wild Rose Press:

Trapped in the criminal mega-corporation, Quasicore, Del tries to escape only to become entangled with the dazzling, dangerous Shays. Sinsudee Shay’s offer of protection and employment seems too good to be true. He has to find out if Shay Enterprises is a rival of the Core or a partner in crime.

Sin needs a pilot for her courier service. Rescuing Del from the Core is an added bonus, but he’s more than she bargained for. She’s too drawn to her new employee who’s intuitive enough to question her motives. He could ruin her and her brother’s plans.

Del’s wild attraction for the enigmatic Sin Shay only complicates matters. He can’t resist her lethal beauty, even as he fears the worst about their company. Is Sin’s offer of a new life his last chance for redemption or just another version of hell?

~Vessel of Power~
The Wild Rose Press:

 Lia must stop the elemental prince at all costs. Prince Destin is searching for the Vessel of Power, an object containing the might of the gods. His soulless father will use it to destroy their world, starting with her family. Lia will do whatever it takes to protect the Vessel, except she can’t seem to end this magnetic prince of fire.

Destin won’t let anything stand in his way, even a gorgeous changeling with mayhem on her mind. He’s determined to prove his worth as son and heir by retrieving the Vessel for his father. Lia challenges him at every turn, but he burns whenever he’s near this tantalizing changeling.

Torn between loyalty to family and desire for one another, Destin and Lia struggle to find the right path. Can they save their world and each other? Will finding the Vessel bind them together or drive them apart forever?
