SUMMARY
~Editor's Pick~

Several centuries ago, Drorgan was cursed into stone. Every twenty five years he is given one night and one day to find a woman willing to accept him in both forms.

It's the price to pay for his past behavior.

As a lost, lonely little girl Rhonda Butterbaugh was rescued by the dragon in the stone and she has never forgotten her fierce protector. It sparked her fascination with all things dragon. If only they were real. There are no such things as fairy tales, however.

When she is attacked on her way home, and wakes up in a cursed magic castle, complete with a fierce dragon shifting lord, her life takes a turn for the surreal.

Determined to break the curse and rescue Drorgan and his kin, she hasn't counted on Drorgan's resistance.

Dragons aren't supposed to be noble.

Be Warned: anal sex, anal play, bondage, spanking

To make him pay for his behavior, Drorgan was cursed into stone and given only one night and one day a century to find a woman willing to accept him in both forms in this riveting naughty fairy tale.

Rhonda Butterbaugh was rescued by the dragon in the stone when she was a little girl but she only wishes dragons were real and the readers can't help but be captivated as Rhonda is rescued once again and her life takes a turn for the surreal. This romance is a fascinating twist to the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale that gives new meaning to the word naughty with lots of sizzling chemistry, scorching passion, heart gripping emotions and spine tingling excitement. The well written, fast paced and smooth flowing plot enthralls readers with the strong, compelling characters and the anticipation building excitement as Rhonda becomes determined to break Drorgan's curse no matter how much he resists.

The whole story was kind of surreal even for me as Doris O'Connor blended a kind of historical with the present or maybe I should a say that it had a time warp feel, so I can only imagine how Rhonda would have felt in that situation. The way the author concluded the story was refreshingly different, adding to the whole bizarre feel of the story.

When she is attacked on her way home, and wakes up in a cursed magic castle, complete with a fierce dragon shifting lord, her life takes a turn for the surreal.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I was hooked from page one. I love dragons. I usually don't read erotic but THE DRAGON IN THE STONE was written well and not distasteful.

The characters were well developed, as was the story. What caught me was the beginning curse and then the time shift. To see a young child falling in love with all things dragon had you thinking back to that curse and what it meant.

When you have a book that reverts between past and present, some authors tend to lose their readers because of their writing style or because the storyline isn't well developed but that wasn't the case here. You are able to follow the story closely and keep up with what happened in the past as well as what's happening in the present.

The main characters of this story are Drorgan, the dragon shifter, and Rhonda. Drorgan has been the only dragon shifter for centuries but is the one who received the curse that was at the beginning of the story and has been in limbo ever since. Rhonda is a persistent and determined woman but who wouldn't be if you had grown up in a foster home?

Drorgan understands that if the humans knew he was a dragon shifter, they would most likely kill him. If he was to keep his species alive, he needed to find his soulmate who would also lift the curse. This person had to not only deal with his human side but that of his dragon side as well.

Can two strong-willed, bull-headed people put their stubbornness aside long enough to find love?
