Guest Post & Giveaway: Louisa Kelley - DAUGHTERS OF DRACA
Hi Everyone. Please help me welcome Louisa Kelley to the blog today! She is here to promote her novels, Lydia and the Draca and Cara and the Draca. Today she s going to talk about her dragon shape-shifters.
Louisa Kelley Dishes About Dragon Shape-Shifters
Once upon a time, in an alternate reality that looks very much like our own, a race of dragon shape-shifters lived in a magical sanctuary.
They still live there today.
They call themselves the Draca. They are a sexy, beautiful, proud race, with ancient roots in the Emerald Isles they trace from time beyond mind.
Long ago, before the Draca found a place of safety, humans feared the Draca and the power of their flames and magical strength. There was to be no peace between the races and the Draca fought back. Yet human weapons increased in cunning and effectiveness and many Draca perished in bloody battles. By the middle ages, the Draca desperately needed sanctuary from the threat of annihilation by humans.
Nareen, de facto Queen of the Draca, cast a great spell with the help of Taranis and Alwen, the Gods of Draca. She created the sanctuary called Dracan, to where all of them fled, hoping to rebuild and replenish what they had lost.
Instead of replenishing, they made tragic mistakes. They inbreeded, family within family, in their desperation thinking the rules of genetics would not apply-- but they did. Babies were born deformed, or died very young. Dracan women felt so much sorrow it was as if they were dying themselves. Something twisted, like magic gone wrong, in the very cells of the entire race. Fortune and the Gods had seemingly deserted them. Eventually, consumed with sorrow, the collective libido of the once lusty Draca had faded to a near tragic halt.
Nareen had not forgotten they all carried human blood along with dragon. In the past long ago, the Draca had mated with human women. There was a chance women lived in the present time carrying Draca DNA, a potential source of life force infusion. If Nareen could find one, she’d have in her hands a true Daughter of Draca-- precious and rare, carrying powers Nareen was determined use.
The Draca had made it to the twenty first century but time was running out. Nareen schemed and plotted and cast another great spell, this time over the Pacific Northwest. The Gods had whispered a most unlikely place for her to go searching – Portland, Oregon.
In book one, Lydia and the Draca, Nareen discovers our heroine, Lydia living in Portland. Lydia is indeed a carrier of a potent, ancient strain of Draca—a true Daughter of Draca. They literally kidnap Lydia and the story goes from there…She meets Eremon, the brother of Nareen, and sparks fly fast and hot. There’s a lot of spicy sex, some rather unusual interspecies sensuality and of course, Lydia’s own emotional and transformative journey that changes her life forever. Not to mention finding out she has the power to rejuvenate the sexual life force of the entire Dracan clan!
In the second book, Cara and the Draca, Nareen is still hungry for more ways to increase population. She comes up with another powerful spell and directs it once again towards the Pacific Northwest. She sends her other brother, Aedhan, to Portland on a secret and dangerous mission. He lives among the humans in a magically hidden tattoo shop, working powerful magic into tattoos that have the potential to activate dormant Dracan genes. Aedhan, with his history as a ‘bad boy’ Draca, wants to redeem his reputation with his family and along the way, find himself his own Daughter of Draca. But that’s not what he’s supposed to be doing there. Yet. Then he meets Cara, when the magic pulls her to his shop and the rules that govern Aedhan’s behavior in the human world are recklessly abandoned with unforeseen results. This book is as hot as the first.
In Portland, the Draca unexpectedly found the writer Louisa Kelley, (born in the year of the Dragon of course), and insisted she record their stories of sexual transformation, redemption, and love. They want to make it right with humans again and so Louisa is doing her best to comply. After all, how do you say no to a gorgeous dragon shape-shifter? Thus was born her series titled, “Daughters of Draca.” She is hard at work on book three.
Romance and science fiction took hold of Louisa Kelley at age nine, when she read Little Women and the Narnia series. She is convinced that the genre paranormal romance, which developed years later, was purely for her benefit. After all, it’s what’s been in her heart all these years. She resides in Portland Oregon where, in a strangely perfect combination of rainy winters and urban skyline, her writing inspiration abounds.
Meet the sexy world that’s been evolving in her fevered brain…she’d love you to join her in some over the top erotic adventures with the Draca; dragon shape-shifters of a very different kind.
