All I want this year is some new caltrops and explosive crossbow bolts. Oh, and a Dragon Prince all tied up with a ribbon.
From Charani, Dragon Hunter for the Wyvern Empire
Charani didn't expect a routine job to take out rogue dragon hunters would lead her to a Dragon Prince, not tied up in a bow, but in chains and starving. She understood the chains as it was never a good thing to starve a dragon who had been around before the signing of the treaty between men and dragons. If ever he was likely to see any human , not as a friend, but as a light snack.
Dimitri has been a prisoner for hundreds of years. The dragon hunter who frees him is little more than a morsel but he doesn't want to eat her as a snack but he to devour her. Awkward after so many years enslaved he has to find his voice to ask Charani be more than just the woman who freed him.
This is a sweet steampunk inspired novelette set around Christmas.
