Bachelor Dragon Blues


Chapter 1

Letting Vacation Beth Out to Play

AS SHE GAVE her short, reddish blonde hair one last brush, Beth faced the fact that this vacation might not be so much fun on her own. She sorely missed her best friend. 

Valerie was the fun friend, Beth was the shy one

Beth put off as long as possible the moment when she would brave the place alone. She had dressed in her favorite thrift store silk blouse—green to bring out her eyes. The jeans were tight enough to show off her butt for those interested. Beth had learned her lesson. She was naturally shy, but she had learned not to bother talking to anyone not enthusiastic about her curves. Hanging out with Valerie was a lesson in how not to be a doormat. 

Beth and Valerie met at college. They were the two hardest working people in the dorm. No one who knew them expected them to become friends, which was total BS. Aside from serious study habits, both were blessed with abundant figures. The first thing they shared was a brainstorm session on where to find the best, cheapest, plus-sized clothes. Then there was that chip on the shoulder thing. They both had that for different reasons.

Valerie was biracial, her mother black and her father white. It took a while before she confided in Beth that she had both an academic scholarship and some affirmative action grants that came with a built-in defensive attitude. 

“I have earned every single advantage I’ve been given.” she said fiercely I’ve got no time for people who want to tear me down.”

Beth grew up poor, white and rural. The minute she opened her mouth some people heard her accent and lowered their expectations. She wasn’t ashamed of where she came from, but she had to work twice as hard to get respect. She put her head down and refused to give up till they caved. So far, they always had. Everyone but her family.

Every call home ended with her mother suggesting that Beth find a nice man with a decent job and stop killing herself working so hard so she wouldn’t “end up a lonely old woman.”

The girls’ weekends had been Valerie’s idea when they moved to different states after college. But Valerie was in Oakland this weekend at her grandmother’s funeral. Beth almost regretted following her friend’s advice to go ahead and go to the resort on her own. Valerie had planned this trip. It wasn’t fair that she couldn’t enjoy it. It was hard to summon up a Vacation Beth attitude without Vacation Valerie’s encouragement. 

As she walked down to the hotel bar, Beth promised herself that she could leave after one drink if she felt uncomfortable. She decided she would enjoy the time off, even if she ended up alone with a pizza and the hotel’s pay per view. She squared her shoulders, took a deep breath and headed for the hotel bar.

Then she walked into the bar and stopped moving, breathing, everything at the masculine perfection before her. She couldn’t help but stare. 

He was tall, at least six feet four, with a solid, powerful body and a commanding air. She could have sworn that he turned in his seat towards her the instant she walked in. Beth flushed a little when she met his eyes, so unexpectedly blue against his olive-toned skin. It took an effort of will to keep from staring too long. His eyes promised pure mischief. His hair was black and his face was strong rather than handsome. A lighter-colored narrow scar traced the edge of his cheek all the way up to the hairline. She wanted to run her hand along the side of his face. No. Girls like her didn’t match up with bad boy, I-command-the-room types like him.

So, she made herself examine the floor, polished bar, even as she felt the force of that tall, dark man’s attention. She went to claim a bar stool across the room from him. he examined the wall of liquor bottles behind the bar as if it contained the secrets of the universe. Blue—1800 Tequila, Grey Goose Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin. Why was she hesitating? Probably because she felt like rushing to his side. She forced herself to look away from the Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Darn it, what would Valerie do? Probably sashay up to him and say something funny. But Beth couldn’t make her legs move, let alone come up with a smart remark. She sipped her root beer.


JEVRATH PRIDED HIMSELF on narrowly escaping having his love-life turned into a planetary joke. The entire Dragon Planet now called him a hero. All because of what he did when he was escorting a group of half-dragons through a portal. An explosion followed by fifty seconds of horrific action that seemed like a lifetime. The media called it the Battle of Cygnus Corridor 44X. Catchy name, Jevrath wanted to snort in ridicule every time he heard it. There hadn’t been a visible enemy. The battle was to patch up the portal wall before they were all sucked out into space and to keep as many of his men alive as he could.

His wounds had healed, but the injuries were deep enough and laced with enough scar tissue on his back and shoulder to make him slower at shifting into dragon form. He was no longer tireless when flying. The doctors had decreed that now he was not fit for the kind of military service he had done before. He was discharged with honor. He tried to ignore the shadows that seemed to show up with occasional sparks right at the corner of his eye. When he whipped his head around to focus on them, they disappeared. The military eye doctor told him, it might be lingering damage to his optic nerve during the explosion or from the few seconds he was exposed to the vacuum of space. Or it might be something else. In other words, no one knew

So, what was he going to do with the rest of his life? 

Right now, he planned to get laid. 

Ironically the Dragon Planet’s ruler had tried to recruit him for stud service. Jevrath managed not to use those words to the king, but that was what it looked like to him. He was supposed to play the hero in search of a mate on a dating game show televised for the whole planet’s amusement. 

Jevrath had accepted the decorative medal in a public ceremony, mainly to honor the soldiers who had lost their lives in that brief, violent encounter. But throwing his personal life open to cameras and planetwide scrutiny was off the table. When he refused the King, Jevrath tried to be as diplomatic as possible, which wasn’t too diplomatic. Fortunately, his hero status gave him the clout to say no and make it stick.

Jevrath had given up on the idea of finding a true mate, if such a thing even existed. He’d never met anyone whose entire physical chemistry had melded with a mate. A few years earlier he had imagined that he had courted a dragonshifter woman. She seemed to care about him for a little while. But when he went back to his military unit, she had made it very clear she wouldn’t be waiting when he returned. She hadn’t contacted him throughout the time he spent in the hospital recovering from his injuries. He got the message.

He had no intention of getting hurt like that again. He came to this resort on Earth hunting for an evening’s entertainment, preferably an encounter that wouldn’t last past dawn. 

Earth was a Forbidden Zone, closed to visitors. Jevrath had a pass to come and go, but very few humans knew that dragon shifters, or any alien species, existed.

Perfect for pure sensual pleasure, no pressure. 

In this resort, things moved on the slow side. Jevrath was fine with that. The women he saw here so far didn’t interest him anyway. It puzzled him that so much attention was being paid to a couple of half-starved females with plastic bulbs implanted in their chests. 

Then she walked in. Then the girl with reddish blond hair and the curves that didn’t stop. 

The sight of her literally took his breath away. Her scent rolled over him like a fresh breeze sweeping into the room. He took a deep breath. The aroma reminded him of the sweet tang of the yellow flowers that grew on the mountain tops of the islands of his clan’s home. Even from across the room a hot rush of arousal seized him and he reminded himself to move carefully. Every fiber of his being told him that she wanted him too, but he couldn’t trust himself and he hated that unfamiliar feeling. Something in him suggested that any other woman would be an unacceptable compromise. For the first time in his life he feared losing control if this woman rejected him.
