Draconian Measures by J.C. Owens

At one time there were 50 Draconian warriors serving the Masarian kingdom by order of their Emperor far away on the Draconian home world. As the years passed their numbers slowly dwindled until only Graitaan is left, alone with the knowledge that he can never get home. A harsh and lonely life is something Graitaan knows much about growing up an orphan on the streets until Marind, Captain of the City Guard, gave him a chance to become the honorable man he is.
Currently Graitaan is attached to the only other non-human command in the Masarian army, the magical, empathic, and secretive Finnarians. Tall, pointy eared with brilliant blonde hair the Finnarians are considered deadly beauty on the battle field. These immortals are required to drink blood on a regular basis as well.
For eight long years Sadan, commander of the Finnarian detachment has been patiently lusting after Graitaan. Sadan is quite certain that the prickly Draconian is actually his mate which is something his people hold as sacred. Convincing the contrary Draconian that they are destined mates will take a major dose of perseverance. This is one courtship that will be remembered through the ages simply because Sadan figures it will take that long to talk Graitaan into agreeing to their mating. Gods help him, please.
The perfect marriage of a fantasy tale and a love story is found within the pages of Draconian Measures. Graitaan is grouchy, short tempered, and that’s on a good day, whereas Sadan is charming and patient. The plotline is straightforward yet the emotional integrity of their love for each other is exceptional – one is accepting and joyful, the other in complete denial. Their romance is the very soul of Draconian Measures. Graitaan doesn’t feel worthy of love while Sadan is overflowing with love to share. Take a walk within another world where love matters most in Draconian Measures. I Joyfully recommend Draconian Measures.
