About the Book:

Despite what the fairytale says, not all dragons are evil, not all knights are good and brave, and not all maidens are helpless. This journey begins with her. Olivia runs away in a desperate attempt to seek life beyond her family’s demands only to stumble into a dragon’s lair. The dragon, Kaden, is not the monster Olivia first thought him to be, and after overcoming her initial fright, Olivia discovers that the dragon has a gentle heart. Though Kaden cannot tell Olivia the truth of his century old curse, he welcomes her companionship, as she brings light to his lone and miserable life. Never has he dreamed that a young woman would be the one to start the change in him, and that their growing bond would set off event no one could predict. On his quest to slay a dragon, Prince Magnus and his men come across Olivia who thwarts his unwelcomed advances and hides the truth of the dragon from him. The prince demands his royal due, turning toward her with malice. After the dragon saves Olivia from Magnus' grasp, the chase begins. The cunning prince is not one to give up easily, so Olivia and Kaden are soon trapped inside the cave with no choice but to face Magnus and his knights.

Author's Note:

First of all, thank you for reading Dragon's Treasure and for providing feedback. This is still a first draft and I'm editing it off-line. I'm not a native english speaker, so if you see something that might read off, please point it out to me. My POV is not limited and I do a bit of "head hopping" but so far, none of my beta readers had problems with that, and I'm interested in getting feedback about that as well, whether it is smooth enough and not overwhelming. I tried to be subtle. I'm still going back and forth with editing and seem to like it less and less so I need some outside opinion. Thnx!
