    a superb romantic fantasy

    In Ragona when she was ten years old her parents condemned Sabina to madness and an early death by volunteering her to be the next Dragonmaid. Sabina and the royal enslaved copper dragon Cordain bond starting with their mutual loathing of her parents. Over time their affinity grows stronger to a deep abiding love even as their link increasingly makes it difficult for the evil Dag Racho to control the beast.

    When Racho is killed, Cordain's soul becomes caught inside the detestable man's corpse. Sabina searches for her dragon and finally finds Cordain, but he has lost much of his memory. Without him soaring above in the sky protecting the people, their emboldened enemies begin to attack. Only the return of the dragon can save Ragona, but Sabina believes the cost is her heart and soul.

    DRAGONBOUND is a superb romantic fantasy in which "Now" and "Then" rotate giving the audience the present day psychological well being of the lead characters and the past that led to their emotional issues that leave a kingdom in trouble if either fails to act. The story line is fast-paced, a tribute to the great Jade Lee as even the changing time frame never decelerates the plot. Fans will relish Sabina's adventures flying with Cordain over Ragona as Ms. Lee provides another excellent character driven thriller.

    Many pieces come together in a thrilling mix of Now and Then!

    The story line grabs you and holds on throughout the book. In the Now, encounters are discussed; In the Then we're taken back to relieve them and to realize how it affected our Now existence.
    Very well written with a style I have not read, before.

    SUPERB FANTASY ROMANCE

    Get ready for the second thrilling installment, DRAGONBOUND in Jade Lee's superb fantasy romance Dragon series for Love Spell (April 2009) with the chapters alternating between the childhood past and adult present day of its unique hero and heroine. In the magical land of Ragona, 12-year-old Sabina is commanded by her jeweler father to become the next dragonmaid to the copper dragon of the evil ruler, Dag Racho in order for her family to gain royal favor. Sabina's head is shaved since the dragon's fire would only singe her hair off and she is condemned to a life of servitude - taking care of the dragon, Cordain's every need including cleaning up his dragon poop! She has no friends since a dragonmaid's job is so isolated. At first she hates Cordain but since he is her only companion a friendship builds between them. Even though Cordain can't talk to Sabina, she is able to soar mentally with him to get away from the cruel control by Dag Racho they both share. When Sabina is a teenager, Dag Racho seduces her in front of Cordain which is very upsetting to him. In present day, Dag Racho has been killed and Cordain's spirit has miraculously inhabited Dag Racho's body. However, his dragon memories are dim of his past with Sabina and magical powers. Sabina goes after Cordain and finds him in the clutching caves since she needs his help to fight Ragona's enemies. Unfortunately looking like her abuser, Dag Racho does not endear Cordain to her heart and they have a rocky road to conquering their enemies and finding their destiny together! Only in the fertile imagination of Jade Lee can a dragon and a little girl grow up together and find true love! DRAGONBOUND will bind fantasy readers' hearts to this wonderful author!
