Dragon Kisses #1 (Cassie and Niall)
Waking up in a strange barn was just the tip of the iceberg. Cassie and Niall find themselves transported to another world, one full of dragon shifters who want to possess them. Cassie is claimed by Illion, an electric blue dragon who shifts into five hulking men, and Niall is claimed by Wynn, a lime green dragon who shifts into two men and two women.
The Zmaj feed from the sexual energy of humans, and finding a cache of five in an abandoned barn is a momentous occasion. Convincing them to stay and protecting them from the Inamanida, their sworn enemy, is another task altogether. And falling in love? Zmaj don’t do that.
When Cassie runs away, Illion is forced to confront his prejudices and his brethren in order to save her from a fate worse than death.
Warnings: MMMFF, MMFMMM, light bondage, dominant dragon shifters
Dragon Kisses #2 (Arabella and Jonathan)
Waking with no memory, Arabella finds herself courted by three men claiming to be her mates. Dragon shifters Tobin, Gerrit, and Blakely woo her with sweet words and deeds, convincing her that she’s always lived this fairy tale existence. Life is perfect until the Inamanida King decides the experiment has gone on long enough—and Tobin is ordered to turn Arabella over to be tortured and used by the entire clan.
Meanwhile Jonathan is working to help settle the humans in Zmaj’s outer city. As the son of a prominent human leader, finds himself thrust into a leadership role and having to liaise with creatures he was raised to fear. Soon he falls for Laurel, a beautiful woman recently arrived from Earth, but as secrets emerge, he faces a stark truth that could cost him everything.
Tobin and Jonathan must risk everything and deal with consequences that could cost them the fragile relationships they’ve built with the women they love.
Warnings: MFMM, MF
Dragon Kisses #3 (Laurel, Niall, Jonathan)
In the months following Jonathan’s transformation, Laurel struggles to come to terms with her feelings for him and the horrific memories of time spent as a dragon’s slave. Jonathan struggles to be patient, but Laurel’s fear is breaking his heart. Niall and Cassie open a popular bakery and revel in the bliss of love and their new lives. Arabella pines for Tobin’s aspects to be reunited, and Nora discovers the secret of creating Zmaj offspring.
Meanwhile all Zmaj braces for the Inamanida attack that Tobin warned them about. When it finally comes, the Zmaj find themselves vastly outnumbered by enemy forces. In the violence that follows, everything changes.
The second I opened the door, Saskia jumped on me. Though she was small for a Zmaj, that only put her at about 6’2—two inches shorter than me. I caught her, but she was a powerful woman. We fell back so that she pinned me against the wall. She kissed me, her dual-tipped tongue snaking into my mouth to plunder what was hers as she slid her hand into my pants. I moaned as she wrapped her fingers around my cock, bringing it to life.
She broke the kiss suddenly and tightened her grip on my manhood. “You left without saying goodbye.”
“You were asleep. I said goodbye to Stellan.” Technically, I’d sucked his cock. No words had been uttered by either of us.
“You gave sex. This is not the same.”
I stroked a strand of her lime green hair away from her gorgeous face, and I extended the caress down her cheek. “I missed you too.”
Her bottom lip stuck out in a pout. “You will let me come to the bakery next time?”
I exhaled hard, mostly because she squeezed my cock to the edge of pain. “Saskia, you can’t come there because you don’t let me work.” My Zmaj was possessive of me and my time, but we were working on that. When I was at the bakery, I’d banned them from visiting because they inevitably got in the way. Even Taja, who loved to bake, had caused me to burn items too many times. Since they also had duties and responsibilities, they’d agreed to respect and support my career choice. Wrapping my arms around her, I pulled her to my chest. “But I’m not working now, so I’m all yours.”
Slowly her grip loosened, and she slid her hand from my pants. Her finger partially morphed into a claw, and she tugged at the fastener on my fly. My pants slid down my legs to pool at my ankles. I kicked out of them, careful not to move too much because Saskia still had a claw and she was now on her knees in front of me. Her tongue darted out to wet her upper lip. I widened my stance and leaned back against the coolness of the wall because where sex was concerned, I had no control. What my Zmaj wanted, they took—and I gladly gave.
Lifting my cock, she dipped her head and slid her wet tongue over my sac. I sucked air and closed my eyes. Playing light flicks over my sensitive skin, she barely touched me, and I knew the teasing was in some measure a punishment for leaving without waking each aspect that morning. Part of me had done it for selfish reasons—they’d want to have sex, and I’d slept in, so I didn’t have time, and I didn’t have it in me to refuse them. My Zmaj fed from my sexual energy, and so they were the opposite of selfish when it came to sex. They often didn’t care if they climaxed at all. It was a nice bonus, but not the point. Pushing me to the edge and keeping me there—that gave them immeasurable pleasure and more energy than ten meals.
“Saskia.” I moaned her name, a reverent caress that matched how I stroked her hair.
She ran her fingertips up and down my thighs, sending shivers to my belly, and she sucked my sac into her mouth. Warmth closed around my cock, and I opened my eyes to see Taja on her knees next to Saskia.
She winked at me as she drew my cock into her mouth, and then she let it go. “Welcome home, Niall. We don’t have time to tie you up right now, but you will not move.” I frequently disobeyed her orders because when I did, they only did things to me that were even more deliciously wicked. She ran her tongue along the ridge of my crown, and when she went to take me back into her mouth, I thrust, forcing my dick deeper than she’d anticipated.
Immediately, Saskia pulled my balls down, stretching them until I cried out. It hurt and it felt so fucking good. “You moved.”
Dragons with a difference are always a good bet for me, and this one did not disappoint!
The Zmaj dragons shift into, not a single person, but Aspects, each with a different part of the whole dragon. They feed of human sexual energy.
Finding a group of five humans in the barn was a godsend, but not all the humans are willing to submit.
Good solid world building, with some questions left unanswered (but in a good way!) great story line, twists and turns. All in all a great, but short, far too short read! Its only just shy of 100 pages, a little over an hour reading time for me. An excellent hangover cure, though!
Now, it says in the blurb, MMMFF and MMFMMM so I was expecting a sexy book, with some story coming through here and there. I did, I don’t know why, but I did and I was very pleasantly surprised! Yes, there si a lot of sex in the book for such a short book, but its all in proportion to the book. And you get two storylines, that of Cassie and her blue dragon, and Niall and his green one. Cassie’s dragon shifts into 5 men, and Niall’s, into 2 men and 2 women.
There is also some history and some long standing war, and some humans who don’t wanna be with the dragons.
Lots going on for it, but it only gets four stars because…wait for it….first person, multiple person POV, that of Cassie and Niall. Each change occurs as the chapter changes, and is clearly headed, but still. I know, I’m just picky!
I should like to read a longer book by this author, just to see what Michele Zurlo can do with more pages to play with. I would also love to read any more books in this series, there is something going on with Jonathon, that could change the dragons outlook on life, entirely!
it doesn’t pack quite the same punch as book one, and I cannot for the life of me figure out why!
Arabella wakes, with no memory, after an accident. Tobin tells her she is their mate, Gerrit and Blakely’s. But not all is as it seems, and Arabella is not in the care of the Zmaj, but in that of the Inamanidi, a rival clan to the Zmaj and they do things a little differently.
Jonathon is changing, but he doesn’t want to. When his mother reveals his true heritage, he is not happy.
Tobin and Jonathon must go against every fibre of their being.
Its told again, in the first person, from Arabella and Jonathon’s POV, but we also get some Tobin, which was nice. I enjoyed, I did, I just cant put my finger on why I felt it wasn’t as good as book one! And you know how that stresses me so!
Not quite 4 stars, but 3.75.

This is book three, and you really do need to read books one and two first.
We rejoin Niall, Cassie, Laural, Arabella and Jonathon in their life with the Zmaj. We meet Nora and her aspects. Life is not easy, but they are getting by. Then the Inamanida attack, and life will never be the same again.
Super sexy dragon shifters, who shift not into one person, but several, all with different aspects of the whole, whether male or female. I loved this third instalment! Sexier, deadlier, bloodier and an ending I did not see coming! It leaves me begging for more, so get writing girlie, get writing FAST!!
I loved that they have figured out how to get pregnant, for these dragons are on the verge of extinction. I loved the twist with Jonathon’s mum, Evelyn. That could have been talked about before, dropped in along the way, but nope. Massive boomshell, that! A good one, though!
Multi partner scenes, in all combinations of male and female. I loved that the dragon aspects are beginning to love their human partners, not just for the sexual energy, but for the emotional attachment too.
Can’t wait for the next one, after that ending! Who else arrived where Laurel, Jonathon, Finley and Cosmo did??

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I’m Michele Zurlo, author of over 20 romance novels. During the day, I teach English, and in the evenings, romantic tales flow from my fingertips.
I’m not half as interesting as my characters. My childhood dreams tended to stretch no further than the next book in my to-be-read pile, and I aspired to be a librarian so I could read all day. I’m pretty impulsive when it comes to big decisions, especially when it’s something I’ve never done before. Writing is just one in a long line of impulsive decisions that turned out to showcase my great instincts. Find out more at http://www.michelezurloauthor.com or @MZurloAuthor.
