Exotic Tales by Jade Lee
HELLO JADE LEE FANS!
There's so much to tell you all that I don't know where to start!
How about this...THANK YOU EVERYONE who voted for me in the PEARLs. I came in second place in Novella with “Kung Fu Shoes” (These Boots were made for Stomping anthology) and second place with Dragonborn in Best SF/F with Romantic Elements. Considering the competition, I'm more than thrilled, so THANK YOU ALL!
BTW, PEARL stands for Paranormal Excellence Award for Romantic Literature. Congratulations to Michele L. for entering my newsletter contest with that answer. Michele...contact me at email@example.com and tell me what Jade Lee book you want! Never fear those who didn't win. Another contest is listed below, but you have to read down to find out what it is.
Next...Dragonbound is out!!! WOO HOO!!! Finally, Sabina and Cordain's story goes out into the world. And let me say, it's probably the best book I've ever written. At least so far. Hopefully, I'm getting better. Anyway, Cordain is the Copper dragon, now a man. He's loved Sabina since she was a child, but she has less than fond memories of slaving away as his dragonmaid. Not a pleasant task, let me tell you, cleaning dragon teeth, dragon scales, dragon poop. Plus, her relationship with the former Emperor Dag Racho was not a nice relationship at all. But she needs something from Cordain, so she goes in search of him. And, oh yes, war is brewing against Ragona. Life is about to get very complicated for Sabina and Cordain. The last thing they need to do is fall in love!
There's lots of adventure in this book, but lots more romance. Lots of hot romance! I'm not sure I could even write a book now that wasn't sexy sexy! You can find excerpts on my website (both Chapter 1 and the sizzling hot excerpt). The back cover copy is listed below along with a few reviews, but don't wait! Run now to buy!

DRAGONBOUND back cover
Horrific are a dragon's claws, its fiery breath and buffeting wings. Potent is its body, fraught with magic down to the very last glistening scale. But most fearsome of all is a dragon's cunning—and the soul that allows it to bond with humans.
Sabina was the one girl of her generation chosen as Dragonmaid, friend and caregiver to the copper dragon of her nation's tyrant king. There she witnessed the greed, lust and rage such a beast could incite—and acquired her own very dark secret.
The seductive and dangerous magic of dragons returns in the follow-up to last year's Dragonborn. Gifted storyteller Lee deftly unfolds her tale by having the chapters alternate between past and present events. Emotions run deep for these psychologically scarred protagonists, and the world they face is unforgiving. Leave it to Lee to create a story so darkly intense and so highly compelling! – Romantic Times 4.5 stars
Jade Lee's Dragonbound is a great continuation of this fascinating dragon series. It was just as good as Dragonborn. I truly enjoyed this sweeping tale of love and enjoyed getting to know what became of Cordain. The story explained a lot of what made Cordain and how Sabina came into Dragonborn as well. I enjoyed the sensual and hot love scenes and boy where they hot. WOW! – Night Owl Romance
Dragonborn and Dragonbound are two awesome and imaginitive books. Jade Lee's take on dragons and their relationship with humans is refreshingly original and it would be truly sad if there were no more in this series. I'd recommend these books to anyone who loves a good fantasy romance and dragons! – Romance Book Wyrm
DRAGONBOUND is a superb romantic fantasy in which “Now” and “Then” rotate giving the audience the present day psychological well being of the lead characters and the past that led to their emotional issues that leave a kingdom in trouble if either fails to act. The story line is fast-paced, a tribute to the great Jade Lee as even the changing time frame never decelerates the plot. Fans will relish Sabina's adventures flying with Cordain over Ragona as Ms. Lee provides another excellent character driven thriller. – Harriet Klausner
And in the meantime...happy reading!
