Dragon Tamer by Kathleen Scott
On the tropical island of Cambry, blight is killing the female dragons. Desperate to protect the creatures he loves, hatchery director Darion Archer calls in the International Field Marshall service to investigate the outbreak.
IFM agent Serrah Gayle is wary of her new assignment, never having revealed she is a rare Tamer; a human able to telepathically communicate with dragons. Bombarded by the minds of the dragons on her arrival, she finds it difficult to hide her secret from Darion, the man the dragons view as her mate. Yet Serrah's investigation into possible espionage against the dragons and her growing relationship with Darion threatens her own life.
Hard to Guard by Nina Mamone
Although the general populace remain unaware dragons live amongst them, it is the job of their guardians to ensure their existence remains a secret; a difficult job considering the childlike attitude of the Wyrms and their nearly limitless avoidance of the consequences of their actions.
Guardians Connor and Sorcha have known each other for five years, but both remain unaware of their feelings for each other. Yet for one night they become intimate; however when a Wyrm is reported missing and a highly addictive drug becomes available on the black market, they are soon investigating. Unfortunately although they may have finally acknowledged their love for each other, their growing relationship is at risk when Sorcha is kidnapped.
Kathleen Scott's offering is absolutely wonderful and certainly an incentive to check out her other works.Read more ›

Serrah doesn't understand why she has been dispatched to investigate the strange illness that is killing dragons. This isn't exactly a typical case for an IFM agent. But it soon becomes apparent that their may be more to the disease affecting these fantastic creatures than meets the eye, and Serrah may just be the only one who can uncover the mystery before it is too late.
Hatchery Director Darion Archer is immediately drawn to the beautiful investigator and soon realizes that, despite her reticence regarding the dragons, she shares his affinity for them in ways that go much deeper than he could ever have expected.
DRAGON TAMER was a fantastic addition to Samhain Publishing's I DREAM OF DRAGONS series! Kathleen Scott's dragons are the embodiment of everything I have always imagined dragons would be - noble, caring, strong, and tender creatures who cherish all life, despite their greater might. Yeah, yeah, I know dragons aren't real, but the way Scott portrays them, they feel as if they could be... Indeed, this story makes me wish they were real.
Scott achieves a happy balance with the romance between Darion and Serrah and the dragon involvement in the story. We never feel as if the two elements are competing with each other at all - instead, they are a wonderful complement to each other as the heroic couple fight to save the dragons they love and the dragons show their happiness in the joining of their two favorite humans.
Even in a short story like this, Scott manages to deliver some very interesting plot twists at the end! I confess that while I had partially deduced the ending, she managed to surprise me with several things in the finish.
I commend Ms. Scott on a delightful first release with Samhain Publishing and will be looking forward to enjoying more of her work!
~HARD TO GUARD by Nina Mamone~
The Guardians are each assigned to the unpredictable Wyrms, tasked with keeping them out of trouble and the general human population safe. Easier said than done.
When both Connor's and Sorcha's charges go missing, the two are paired together to find them ASAP. But the pairing of these two Guardians proves as combustible as the Wyrms themselves, and more than their tempers flare when Connor and Sorcha are stuck in close quarters together!
Samhain Publishing has put together five new dragon-themed stories that have been published as individual eBooks and will appear together in two different print books in 2008. Nina Mamone's offering to these anthologies is HARD TO GUARD and will appear in the print anthology I DREAM OF DRAGONS II.
My favorite part of Mamone's story is the relationship between Sorcha and Connor. Each have long harbored intense feelings for the other, and each has long believed that the other does not care for them at all. It is not until they are forced into close proximity during the search for their missing charges that they finally begin to understand their true feelings for each other, and the chemistry between these two is riveting!
I was slightly disappointed that the Wyrms didn't figure greatly into the story. For an anthology titled I DREAM OF DRAGONS, I expected the dragons (wyrms) to have more of an on-screen presence.
Still, I was impressed with Mamone's writing, and I will be watching for more publications from this author in the future.
