Excerpt and Spotlight: The Dragon's Heart by Eden Ashe

Excerpt
After another hour, he decided his only option was to question Shelby again. It had nothing to do with needing to see her, or the way her soft voice soothed his frayed nerves. It didn’t.
He came up short when he saw her standing in front of his television with tears swimming in her eyes.
She dashed at her tears, her eyes never leaving the screen. “They’re saying I staged the shooting yesterday to get out of what happened last year.”
He moved up behind her. Not knowing what else to do, he reached over her shoulder to switch the television off. “They’re idiots.”
“Maybe.” She let out a pathetic snort, wiping at her tears again before she turned to face him. Instead of meeting his gaze, though, she kept hers locked firmly on his chest.
He nearly staggered under the weight of emotions that hit him. This woman, with her pale blonde hair, soft green eyes and body that could make the most devout monk sit up and beg, was every fantasy come to life. Even in the time he’d been sure he hated her, he’d never been able to get his body to stop craving hers like his dragon craved flight.
“No maybe,” he growled, allowing the beast out just enough to make his point as he took an involuntary step toward her. It was always involuntary. Even when common sense told him to flee, he was moving toward her. She tilted her head back. Despite himself, he liked the way she looked up at him. “They’re idiots,” he repeated. He brushed a strand of blond out of her face, tucking it behind her ear. “If you want, I’ll find every one of them and shove their microphones and theories down their throats until they choke on them.”
Her breath caught in her throat as she searched his face. “You’d do that for me?” she asked quietly.
“That’s just it, princess.” He took another step closer to her, backing her into bed. When she fell back onto it, he leaned in, bracing his hands on either side of her head, forcing her to accept his invasion of her space. “I’d do anything for you. It scares the fucking hell out of me.”
