Bryn is the 3rd book in USA Today Bestselling and Amazon #1 author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW paranormal series, DRAGON HEARTS. Author’s Note: Beware of very sexy alpha dragon shifters on the hunt for their fates mates! To say Brynis reluctant when his sister-in-law, Chloe, asks him to act as bodyguard to her friend, is an understatement. As a fifteen-hundred-year-old dragon shifter, very close to becoming feral, he prefers to stay as far away from humans as possible. But none of the Pendragon brothers can resist Chloe when she looks at them with those big blue eyes. Including Bryn. Tegan doesn’t know what to make of the taciturn grouch her friend Chloe has asked to accompany her to New York as her bodyguard. Yes, Tegan’s ex-boyfriend is being a creepy stalker, and she appreciates Chloe’s concern. But that doesn’t change the fact Chloe’s brother-in-law, Bryn, is rude, arrogant, and totally overbearing. He’s also hot as hell, and just being around him makes Tegan’s panties wet! Bryn can’t seem to resist her either, and it isn’t long before the passion between the two of them blazes hot and strong. Even so, Tegan senses he’s hiding something, she just has no idea what that something is. Can Bryn keep Tegan safe from her ex-boyfriend? More importantly, should Tegan really allow herself to fall in love with Bryn, a man so intensely sexual neither she nor her heart have any defences against him?

But peace has never been something the Sinners have been able to enjoy for very long, and in amongst falling in love, marrying, and having their children, they had forgotten to account for the one person they had believed to be insignificant but who was in fact as much responsible for Napoleon’s escape from Elba the previous year, and the battles and deaths that followed, as the person who was hanged for the crime. Will the Sinners discover their mistake in time or will another one of them suffer the devastation of losing someone they love?

GRIGOR is the 5th book in USA Today and Amazon #1 Bestselling Indie Author, Carole Mortimer’s, paranormal series, DRAGON HEARTS. Author’s Note: Beware of very sexy alpha dragon shifters on the hunt for their fated mates! Grigor Pendragon is nearer to turning feral than any of his brothers, of making that final shift and remaining in his dragon form. If— When this happens, his brothers will have no choice but to kill him, before he harms any humans, who for sixteen hundred years haven’t known of their existence. The only thing that will stop Grigor’s last and fatal shift is meeting and claiming his fated mate, the one woman meant just for him. Gayle Wilson is independent and outspoken, a computer geek, and she has no idea her sister, Holly, is now the mate of a dragon shifter, or that Dylan’s seven brothers are also dragon shifters. What she does know is that she’s being kept a virtual prisoner at Pendragon Castle, the family’s home in North Wales, until her sister comes back from her trip away with Dylan. Gayle isn’t at all impressed when Grigor, the eldest Pendragon brother, announces she belongs to him now, and then expects her to do exactly what he tells her to do. Admittedly, he’s tall—very!—dark, and handsome, with muscles that go on for miles, but there’s no way she’s going to belong to anyone, least of all the arrogant and cold Grigor Pendragon. The first opportunity she gets she’s getting out of there and going back to London, and to hell with the whole of the Pendragon family. But when danger starts stalking her, Grigor is the only one she can turn to for help.

DYLAN is the 4th book in USA Today Bestselling and Amazon #1 Bestselling Indie Author, Carole Mortimer’s, paranormal series, DRAGON HEARTS. Author’s Note: Beware of very sexy alpha dragon shifters on the hunt for their fates mates! Waking up in a curtained cubicle in a human hospital wasn’t the worst experience Dylan had ever had in his centuries-long existence, but it was certainly not something he would ever have expected to happen. As a dragon shifter, human ailments didn’t bother him, and if he was ever injured then transforming into his dragon would heal him. Besides, he and his brothers had always avoided human hospitals because the doctors there had a habit of carrying out tests and asking for X-rays that would clearly tell them the Pendragon brothers weren’t human. Opening his eyes to find his fated mate bending over him, his human fated mate, was even more of a shock. Yes, three of his brothers had found their fated mates in the past year, and they had all been human, but Dylan had never thought it would happen to him too. Holly Barnes wasn’t only human, the name tag attached to her white coat said she was also a doctor. And the singular most beautiful woman Dylan had ever seen, with her glossy auburn hair, dark green eyes, and voluptuous body. A & E doctor, Holly Wilson, didn’t know what to make of her newest patient. Apart from the fact he was the most gorgeous and sexy man she had ever set eyes on. He was also extremely tall, over six and a half feet of dark and dangerous bad boy, if her assessment was correct. But she hadn’t been able to find any visible injuries on him when she examined that ripped and toned body, no head injury or anything else to explain why he had been unconscious when he was brought in to A&E. He looked perfectly normal to her, almost as if he was sleeping, rather than injured. Having him suddenly raise his eyelids and look at her with glittering blue eyes, that didn’t appear fevered or pained, but gazed up at her as if she was Christmas, birthdays, and every other holiday celebration combined, was more than a little unnerving. Even more so was having his fingers curl like steel bands about her wrist and have him call her his fated mate. Holly had enough problems in her life right now without some crazy man telling her she now belonged to him. Even if he did look like a Greek or Roman god and made her knees go weak. Until Dylan knew what had happened to put him in the human hospital in the first place, he knows he shouldn’t even think about claiming Holly as his mate. Staying away from his fated mate altogether proves impossible, but is Dylan putting Holly’s life in danger by continuing to seek her out at every opportunity?
