Life was definitely better when one’s fondest dreams came true.
Better, indeed, for newly made baronet, Sir Frederick Wentworth. Enjoying a title, a sea-side estate, a dragon to Keep, and most importantly, marriage to his dearest Anne, life was far better than he dreamed it could be.
Better, but not easier.
Stubborn local sea dragons refuse to talk, much less entertain a treaty with the Blue Order. The Order’s patience is wearing thin, and the local Order magistrate—impertinent, ineffective, and downright hostile toward all things cold-blooded or female, only makes matters worse.
Lady Anne Wentworth, Special Liaison for the Blue Order, not being cold-blooded, but being female, finds her duties impeded at every turn. She tolerates his machinations until the delayed arrival of an urgent letter calls her across the county. If only she is not too late…
Naturally, upon Anne’s departure, relations with the local sea dragons shift from becalmed to turbulent, threatening the fragile balance of Blue Order peace. Can Wentworth tame the gale-force dragon storm threatening to capsize the life he holds dear?
A fresh new gas lamp fantasy adventure in the engrossingly intricate world of Jane Austen’s Dragons. Anne McCaffrey meets Jane Austen, a perfect mix for dragon lovers and regency-era fans alike.
