I have always loved dragons. They’re beautiful, mysterious, wondrous creatures. And there are so many different kinds, from European to Asian, and lots of different ones within those subsets. They breathe fire, they can fly, they’ve got scales. What’s not to love?
Add in shifting and mating and male/male romance, and suddenly they go from awesome to incendiary!
Top Five Things Best Things About Writing Dragon Shifters
5. They’re tough so anything goes. As a writer of BDSM, I love being able to let dragon shifters play hard without many of the physical repercussions a human lover would have, especially as the human soulmates in the Dragon Soul series become stronger so they can take more.
4. They fly! What a wonderful thing for them, and an even better thing for their lovers. I love writing a first time flying together scene almost as much as a first time making love scene.
3. Dragons, on the whole, are long-lived, so they can be rich, they can already have a ton of life experience, they can be loners and growly, as that fits a long-lived dragon like personality, and I love being able to write grumbly, growly dudes. Especially if they’re demons or dragons and the like. They’re not human, so you can let loose on their personalities.
2. You can make up your own rules because they are mythical creatures. Not only can you play fast and loose with the dragon mythos, but these are shifters so there are no rules set in stone.
1. They’re beautiful creatures – both as dragons and in their human forms.
Seduced by the Tide was even more fun to write than Branded by Flames, the first in the series. I hope you enjoy it!
