Stella: Hi Eve, welcome to Book Lovers Inc! Can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Eve: Hi Stella, thanks so much for having me here today. Let’s see, I live in leafy Surrey in the UK with my very own hero Hubby. I feel most like “me” when I’m creating stories and still have to pinch myself that I get to call this my job. I love Castle, Sherlock, The Big Bang Theory and all things Agatha Christie. I’m a bit suspicious about exercise! Oh, and I’m really bad at singing (we’re talking dogs howling, bad). Why is it that people who can’t sing, love to?
Stella: Oh I LOVE those shows as well! Are you a planner or pantser? Can you tell us a bit about your writing process? How do your novels come to life?
Eve: I think I’m a little of both. I’ve learnt over …
As discerning readers have no doubt noticed….This blog has been taken over by dragons!
This really shouldn’t come as a shock. Dragons are magnificent and powerful creatures. They range from brilliant, duplicitous, magic-wielding immortals – to the less-strategically inclined, but equally deadly, fire-breathing, poison-spewing, feral winged-creatures terrorizing all who dare to enter their territory.
Even as we speak, they are shoring up their defenses and laying in siege weaponry. Soon the dragons shall spread throughout the internet and into your computer.
THEY CANNOT BE STOPPED. (Plus, who would even want to try? Only soulless monsters who have to appreciation for literature, art, beauty, and the distinct pleasure of having one’s head still attached to one’s body.)
Dragons can, however, be placated. Through copious amounts of praise and treasure. Book Lovers Inc. has thus begun honoring our draconic overlords through Dragon Day (in which there has been much praise, and the promise of treasure). This shall be …

Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty’s anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.
Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen’s Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints …

I love friends-to-lovers romances. They’re some of my favorites. That’s probably why I still sit down and watch movies like Some Kind of Wonderful or When Harry Met Sally whenever they come on T.V. even though I already have the dialogue memorized.
There’s something about the hero and heroine starting out as friends that seems to add a deeper layer to the romance, because they already have so …
