Son of Dragons Book 2 Legends of Oblivion by Andrea R. Cooper
In a time of false peace, the dead rise as soldiers for the Warloc’s scheme. For thousands of years he has stood ready for the final battle. Though the witch and her cursed Elvin have destroyed his physical body, now with his protégé, he has honed a new way to wage war.
Shunned by her own people and weary-hearted from centuries of lost loves, Elvin warrior Mirhana scours the land to silence the undead. Her heart has turned as cold as the sword she wields, until a prince seeks her aid.
Never has Prince Landon met a woman like Mirhana. Both beautiful and deadly, she haunts his dreams. The battle at hand becomes more enchanting than fighting to remain true to his unseen betrothed.
When a traitor emerges, new alliances are tested and the only remaining hope is to follow the prophecy and find the … Son of Dragons.
When the Drow Queen cut Landon’s arm, she smelled his copper taint of blood and something wild. A twig snapped behind her and she cursed her random thoughts.
Unsheathing her sword, she spun around, bringing the blade up in a fast smooth motion, and underneath the tip stood Landon.
The passion in his eyes caused her breath to catch. She dropped the sword the same time he jerked her to him. His mouth devoured hers with an intensity that made wetness spread in her loins.
She could not be close enough to him. One of his hands brushed her breast through the fabric of her tunic and she wanted to rip the material away and feel his skin upon hers.
His hands were smooth without callouses, but she didn’t care. Without thought, she backed up, bringing him with her until her back hit a thick pine. There he pressed his body into hers and she began to gyrate against him.
She felt him get hard and it excited her even more. When his hands lifted her tunic off her, she sought his lips even more. One of his hands grasped her braid, while the other sought her breast. She moaned against his mouth and tugged on his trousers.
Instead of obeying, his mouth left hers and he bent to take her breast into his mouth. Heat boiled inside her until she thought she would burst. One of his hands massaged her breast while his mouth feasted on the other.
Between them, his other hand slipped to her folds and stroked her until she could take no more. She pushed him away hoping he would undress, but with his body heat gone, she forced herself to think. “No.”
His hands stopped from removing his pants all the way. If he kissed her again, she would crave him inside of her and not care about anything else.
“This—” She gathered up her tunic and covered herself with it. “This isn’t like me. I’m not intimate with humans. Not anymore.” Gods, she had to get away or she’d lose herself and her heart again.
“Let me change your mind and taste your mouth again, or the other breast?” He took a step toward her and she saw the lust burning in his dark eyes.
She put her tunic on before he could reach her. “The others will wonder where we are.” Without a glance back at him, she took off back toward the path and heard his chuckle.
What was wrong with her? She was not promiscuous and she knew this would only lead to sorrow when he died and she continued living for hundreds of years. She should have known better than to let her emotions cloud her thinking.
And yet … she enjoyed his company and constantly wanted to touch him. Even the sound of his voice made her eager to taste his lips again.
Sure, she had been with humans before. But not like this. Not filled with a passion so strong it eluded reasoning. Besides, none of those relationships had lasted long.
No matter how much she had begun to care for Landon, with the dangers of her mission to annihilate the Warloc and his protégé, she would rather him live with another than die loving her.
Still, it took all her willpower to walk away from him. Even now, she yearned to wrap her legs around him and have him take her against the tree.

About Andrea R. Cooper
Andrea R. Cooper’s favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
