Blurb Blitz + #Giveaway: Dragon Song by Shirley McCoy @GoddessFish


by Shirley McCoy

GENRE: Paranormal Romance


Dragons rule the world. Princess Morgan Talbot of Esterhaven knows one rules her. Rownar, the most powerful dragon of all, forced a magical bond with her at a tender age. He intends to corrupt her soul, then consume her body. Now of age, Morgan knows she must take back her life and defeat Rownar, and all his kind. Connor O'Malley is the greatest dragon slayer alive. He spends one memorable night with Morgan, never thinking to see her again. Until he does. He is deeply shaken to learn the woman he fell for is a princess and determined to conquer Rownar herself. When Connor offers to train her, Morgan reluctantly accepts. Now an epic battle will begin, for a princess's life, her soul, her kingdom, and the world.


As they cautiously navigated through the hoard, Morgan detected a slight glow in her peripheral vision. It flared up, then subsided. As they stepped forward, she discerned it again, and this time she whipped around quickly enough to see a small magical symbol etched in the floor behind them light up, then dim.

Oh no,” she murmured.

What’s wrong?” Connor demanded in a sharp tone.

She paced further and showed him. “I think if Meglos doesn’t already know we are here, he will soon.”

As if on cue, deep within the cave, the sound of an almighty clang of metal meeting metal filled their ears. Then came a roar, the kind which could only be made by a dragon.

Morgan knew her eyes must be wide as saucers, but she couldn’t seem to help it or move at all, in fact. Horror rooted her to the spot, unable even to speak, much less move.

Connor was not so afflicted. “Run!”

When she didn’t twitch so much as an eyelash, he yelled, “Run, Morgan!”

The volume of his words, his manner, and most of all, the use of her name, snapped her out of her panicked shock at last. She went from utter stillness to moving faster than she ever had in her life.

The dragon, shrieking and breathing fire all the while, flew after them.

Hi Bea

Responding here to a comment you made on today’s tour stop at Sandra’s book club since I can’t seem to be able to make comments there. You asked animated movie vs. live action. Live action with great cgi and other live effects would be my choice since my books aren’t really for kids LOL. Thanks so much for the question! It’s my dream to get my books made into movies or series on Netflix!

So, I wanted to close out my blog tour by saying what I can’t say enough, thanks. To my many terrific hosts, to Goddess Fish and to everyone who checked out Dragon Song at any of the stops on the tour. This was my first blog tour and it has been a blast! To those who are asking what’s next for Shirley, well a novel called Welcome to Niceville. Think Wanda Vision, think Stepford Wives, think the 90’s movie Pleasantville and mix them all together! For more updates, just check my website or join my email list. Anyway, thanks so much!!!
