Welcome back to Medieval Monday! Our “First Kiss” theme continues, and this week, I’m featuring Daryl Devoré’s The Last Dragon. Such a cool cover!
If you’re following my excerpt from Return of the Raven, you can find Snippet #4 on Daryl’s blog. Remember, you’ll find links to all the participating authors’ snippets at Medieval Romance Lovers on Facebook. (#MedMonSpring21)
Now, let’s enjoy Daryl’s fourth snippet:
“Do ye…” Derry’s words stuck in her throat. What if her powers scared Hawkyns? No. He did not scare easily. He fought and slayed dragons. But, what if her powers caused a question within him? No. He showed no sign of that. She’d healed him. He said he enjoyed being with her. He spoke true words.
Stop being a foolish one.
Hawkyns pulled his horse to a stop. “Do I what?”
She lowered her eyes and refused to meet his gaze. The gaze that already gave her the answer to her unasked question. And still she was too afraid to ask. Doubt clouded her senses.

More about The Last Dragon:
What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.
A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.
Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his father’s kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child – dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.
Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.
Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.
Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?
