Prince of Spies
Can the master of stealth master a maiden’s fragile heart?
Dragon Knights, Book 4
Nico is known as the Prince of Spies for a reason. He's a cunning shapeshifter able to take the form of a dragon at will -- the gift of his royal heritage.
Riki lives in misery, chained up to serve a mad king's perverted magic. Forced to use her draining healing skills to keep him alive, Riki is a shadow of the woman she should be.
Nico knows Riki is the woman he's been searching for the moment he sees her sad, beautiful face. He wastes little time breaking them both out of the enemy palace, beginning an adventure that will take them across two countries, through peril and danger, and the discovery of an undeniable love and mutual respect.
With the help of an old friend and ally, Nico teaches her the many varied and exciting ways of pleasure. Riki teaches him a thing or two in return -- including the fact that he should never underestimate her. Will Nico have the courage to let her fly free, trusting she'll return to him, or will his love smother the fledgling beauty who is breathing free air for the first time in her tragic life?
Warning: Contains a princely scoundrel who enjoys a little exhibitionism when the mood strikes. He's also not above asking a friend to help pleasure his lady. Be careful, lest the dragon's fire singe your senses.

What the Critics are Saying about Prince of Spies...
5 Hearts from The Romance Studio! Julia said: "...the best one of the series so far...the story certainly keeps you hooked as you find out more of what is going on in the Dragon Knights world. I believe that you could read this one as a stand alone, but once you do you will want to race out and buy the other three from the series...a fantastic story that shouldnâ€™t be missed."
5 Kisses from Two Lips Reviews! Tara Renee said: "...an erotic tale of seduction and secrets...I thoroughly enjoyed the play between Nico and Riki. Each time they share passion, it's hotter than the last, culminating in a scene that will blow you away."
5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies! ladybirdrobi said: "Another masterpiece...it flows with fluid grace from scene to scene. The descriptions are such that you feel that you too can become a dragon and fly. The imagery is vivid. Added together they become fuel to the imagination. What makes this book special is that it is capable of standing alone...you can read them out of order without getting confused about the characters."
5 Red Tattoos from Erotic Escapades! Megan said: "Vivacious characters that resonate within your heart and a storyline that is so fantastic that putting it down is impossible has ensure that Prince of Spies and the Dragon Knight series will find a permanent place on your keepers shelf."
B from The Good, The Bad, The Unread! Shannon C said: "I loved these two characters. Riki is a pretty damaged woman, and I loved Nico's devotion to her. Nico is just an awesome hero, and I really could buy that he was a spy."
Lori Ann at Romance Reviews Today Erotic said: "I recommend PRINCE OF SPIES wholeheartedly. Imaginative, full of interesting twists and turns, this book and the others are simply not to be missed."
4 Stars from Just Erotic Romance Reviews! Samantha Masters said: "Nico, especially, is a very nice blend of hard soldier and gentle lover â€“ a character trait that is a foil for Arikiaâ€™s tortured past. The heroineâ€™s gradual development from victim mentality to self-confidence is also a nice touch that makes the romance and the sex both hot and tender at the same time."
