What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.
A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.
Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his father’s kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child – dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.
Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.
Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.
Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?
Scene set – Prince Hawkyns is searching for an evil sorcerer and a demon dragon. He believes he has found the home of the sorcerer and is searching inside.
Fear crept out of its hiding place and placed its cold hand around Hawkyns’ heart.
His nerves were so strained, they were raw. He fought to remain calm. The fear grew bolder and spread though his limbs. His breathing grew shallow.
He feared if something as small as a mouse scurried out from under the door he would jump and yell like the most half-witted kitchen maid.
What is wrong with me? I am a knight. Enough of this foolishness.
The trembling in his limbs made his sword tap against his leg.
He placed his fingers on the latch, lifted it and waited. No squeak of rusty metal to alert anyone. The movement didn’t bring about the shout of impatient attackers. He pushed the door. It opened. He waited.
His heart beat wildly in his chest. He gulped deep breaths and exhaled them slowly—silently.
As he reached forward a loud No! sounded in his head. There might be danger. Leave. Leave now. Run!
What is wrong with me? I must go in. Find the enemy. Slay the dragon.
I will not run. I am a knight.
Pushing with his hand, he edged the door open a fraction more.

About the Author
Two writers in one. Daryl Devoré writes hot romances with sexy heroes and strong heroines. Victoria Adams is Daryl Devoré’s alter ego when she’s inspired to write sweet romances with little to no heat.
Daryl (@daryldevore) lives in an old farmhouse in Ontario, Canada, with her husband, a large salt water aquarium full of fish, a black cat named Licorice and some house ghosts. Her daughter is grown and has flown the nest. Daryl loves to take long walks on her quiet country road or snowshoe across the back acres, and in the summer, kayak along the St. Lawrence River. She has touched a moon rock, a mammoth, and a meteorite. She’s been deep in the ocean in a submarine, flown high over Niagara Falls in a helicopter, and used the ladies room in a royal palace. Life’s an adventure and Daryl’s having fun living it.
