About the Author:
Multi published author, Khloe Wren, started writing her first novel in high school, until it mysteriously disappeared from the family computer (her older brother was the lead suspect but nothing was ever proved). She didn't put pen to paper again after that for a number of years but she did keep reading. Khloe has always loved all things paranormal: sexy vampires and sultry shifters have always been her favorites. So when she picked up writing again, it seemed only natural to write paranormal romance.
Khloe lives in country
with her incredibly patient husband and two daughters. When she's not sitting
at her laptop writing, she's spending time with family or friends, kicking butt
at karate or feeding her addictions of reading, eating chocolate and drinking

Becky turned to follow the others and ran straight into a warm wall of muscle. With an umph she stumbled back, but before she could fall and land on her ass, a strong arm wrapped around her middle.
"Easy there, little one."
The deep rumble in her ear lit her body up like a candle, while the words he spoke just pissed her off. At five foot seven and a size eighteen, she was not little by any ones standards.
"Get your hands off me." She ground the words out.
The arm around her waist tightened, his fingers splayed out over her tummy before he caressed his way over to her hip, and then slid it down over her ass before releasing her.
"As you wish, little one."
She spun to glare at this ogre of a man. "Stop calling me that. I am not little by any definition of the word."
She watched as his hot hazel gaze slid down her body, her nipples tightened as his gaze brushed over them. One purple eyebrow rose up, as he obviously noticed her body's reaction. He continued his visual journey all the way to her feet before heading back up. When his gaze locked back on hers she became breathless. Which pissed her off all over again. She was not some girly girl that tripped over herself because some hot guy showed some interest in her. Driving dump trucks around mines for the last few years had toughened her up even more than her four brothers had. Always a tomboy, Becky had never been able to stand macho-alpha-male bullshit. So many men thought they could strut around acting all tough and get whatever they wanted from whoever they wanted it from. Not on my watch baby, it just ain't. Gonna. Happen.
"But you are. Compared to me and my younger brother you are indeed little. I can look clean over your head."
Damn. The affect his velvety voice had on her was lethal. Suddenly, a warmth at her back got her attention. A large warm hand ran down her arm and took hold of her hand.
"Come, sweetheart, we need to head to the Dining Hall and get you fed. The others are waiting."
Sweetheart...did he just call me sweetheart? Oh, these two were heading for an ass kicking all right. She tried to snatch her hand back but he wouldn’t release her, he just began moving down the hall. She dug her heels in.
1. Where did the idea come from for the book?
When a call went out for stories to be part of the Edible Delights anthologies I sat back and thought about what I could do. I went googling and found this beautiful image of a woman’s lips with honey dripping from them.
I love dragons so I choose them to be the shapeshifting animals and included the honeyed kiss in the mating ceremony. It was meant to be a one off story but within minutes of starting to write it I became aware that it needed to be a five part series. This current release is book two.
2. What genre does your book fall under?
It falls under Paranormal (shape shifters) and erotic romance (ménage: mfm).
3. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I can’t think of any actors that would suit the characters! The men are warriors of old, long hair, toned muscular bodies. Becky, the heroine is a large woman who is part Aboriginal. I will admit I don’t watch much TV so don’t know many actors.
Me: I couldn't find actors as well, but I think these Comic images gives us a good idea.
4. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Becky finds herself surrounded by hunky dragon shifters after going through a portal. Two claim she’s their Desired! Pleasure follows adventure until she commits to them.
(I know that’s three sentences, but I just couldn’t do it in one!) -
Me: That is all right Khloe.**smile**
5. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Dragons of Feury is with Secret Cravings Publishing.
6. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
This series are all short stories, around 20,000 words. I wrote the first draft in a matter of weeks. After years in the admin field I type really fast, so as long as I have the story in my mind, it doesn’t take me long to get it down.
7. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Bianca D'Arc writes some great dragon shifter books, as does Angela Castle.
8. Who or What inspired you to write this book?
As I said in the first answer, it was the call for the anthology that started my mind thinking about dragons and honey. I also wanted to challenge myself, write something outside my comfort zone.
9. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
My dragon shifters have a unique ability…
Their tongues vibrate. I’ll let you fill in the gaps on how that could come in handy ;)
Me: Oh my word, the image and....okay let me not get carried away **smile**
