With The Last Dragon released on 4th October, we’re having a little recap at everything that’s happened in this paranormal fantasy romance series so far. After the last post talking about the “love triangle” between Amy, Pueblo and Paul, we thought we’d treat you to a couple of small exclusive excerpts!
All excerpts of The Last Dragon are copyright © 2013, Dianna Hardy. All rights reserved.
Excerpt 1 (Amy & Pueblo)
“I don’t want you to go.”
“I know, babe. I don’t want to go either.” His warm hand rested on her still flat belly, the both of them lying on the even warmer sand beneath them.
“You’ve got two babes now,” smiled Amy.
Pueblo laughed, rich and deep, sending delightful waves of pleasure all through her body. “As if you’re not enough to handle on your own.”
“You know it’s true.”
“Would you have it any other way?”
“Not a chance.” His lips captured hers, and she relaxed into the feel of him, not quite managing to forget that it wasn’t quite as real as she’d like. She blinked back tears, refusing to cry in front of him – he’d seen too much of her crying recently. He was doing his best – no need for her to pile on the guilt.
He pulled away.
This isn’t enough! screamed her mind, but she kept her mouth shut. “Tell me about your training. Is it going well?”
“I don’t wanna talk work. I want to talk about you – us…”
“But I want to know you’re all right. You never tell me about what’s happening. Are you safe?”
“Always safe. I have a family to come back to.”
She almost lost the tear-free battle right then … almost. “Will I see you again tomorrow night?”
Excerpt 2 (Amy & Paul)
Amy threw her keys back into her bag, before throwing the bag on the kitchen counter. “I don’t think what I’m asking for is unreasonable.”
“You don’t—Amy, we’re living in an apocalyptic world!”
“And because we’re living in an apocalyptic world, I want to give birth in a nice, safe hospital.” Paul was near the end of his tether, she could tell – he had his kill-me-now face on.
“Home births are really much safer than people think, and since when are hospitals all that safe?”
“Since they started stocking painkillers. Can you see the size of this baby? You’re tall and Pueblo’s massive. I’m not giving birth to a thirteen pound baby at home.”
“The doctor said it was nearly ten pounds.”
“And does that sound like a breeze to you?”
“The hospital isn’t staffed – you heard him.”
“So we’ll find another hospital.”
“And which would be the apocalyptic hospital of choice, madam?” Oh, great. Kill-me-now face and sardonic-husband tone.
To find out how Amy found herself sandwiched between two men, start at the beginning: Witches, angels, demons, Heaven and Hell all come together in a dizzying story of friendship, love and forgiveness.

It’s hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It’s even harder when you’re a twenty-five year old virgin who’ll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone … that’s why Elena’s never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other.
Elena’s about to discover that there are even more difficult things in life to deal with. One of them comes in the form of a pen she discovers one day, a pen that allows anything she writes to come to pass…
Suddenly, it’s not just her powers or her heart that’s at stake, but her very soul, as a dream demon with a seductive pull uses the pen to try and turn her away from her reality, and from Karl.
But the pen is just the beginning. Everything Elena has believed in is a lie, and her world is about to fall apart…
