Georgie and the Dragon [NOOK Book]

Overview

Who'd believe that in the enlightened year of 1815, Georgie Grisham's Welsh village still felt the need to make its 100-year sacrifice to the local dragon lord? And just because she was supposed to be a descendant of St. George, why was everyone in town suddenly looking at her? Fine. If being the dragon sacrifice would save her younger siblings from the poor house, she'd do it. After she got the agreement in writing.

Overview

Who'd believe that in the enlightened year of 1815, Georgie Grisham's Welsh village still felt the need to make its 100-year sacrifice to the local dragon lord? And just because she was supposed to be a descendant of St. George, why was everyone in town suddenly looking at her? Fine. If being the dragon sacrifice would save her younger siblings from the poor house, she'd do it. After she got the agreement in writing. When the villagers found her safe and sound the next morning, maybe they'd quit believing in this dragon nonsense. But just in case there was some truth to it, she was taking her great-great grandfather's sword. Someone needed to put an end to this appalling tradition once and for all. When Caddoc sees the buxom, flame-haired beauty waiting for him on the rocks, he can't resist flying in for a closer look. Then the little minx tries to stab him with an enchanted sword. For the first time in centuries, this sacrifice business is going to be fun. First he has to take away her weapon, and, takes her back to his lair. After he shapeshifts to human form - a shape she recognises as the reclusive lord of a nearby castle - he can teach her what it means to satisfy all the cravings of a dragon. Reader Advisory: This story was released as part of the Brits in Time Anthology by Total-E-Bound.

Meet the Author

Author of over thirty popular books and novellas in paranormal, historical, and contemporary romance, Cindy Spencer Pape is an avid reader of romance, fantasy, mystery, and even more romance. According to The Romance Studio, her plots are “full of twist and turns that keep the reader poised at the edge of their seat.” Joyfully Reviewed said, her “colorful characters and plot building surprises kept me spellbound,” and Romantic Times Magazine says her “characters are appealing, and passionate sex leads to a satisfying romance.” Cindy firmly believes in happily-ever-after. Married for more than twenty years to her own, sometimes-kilted hero, she lives in southern Michigan with him and two teenage sons, along with an ever-changing menagerie of pets. Cindy has been, among other things, a banker, a teacher, and an elected politician, but mostly an environmental educator, though now she is lucky enough to write full-time. Her degrees in zoology and animal behavior almost help her comprehend the three male humans who share her household. For more about Cindy and her books, you can find her on her website, or her blog.

Read an Excerpt

“We’re going to have to sell the sword.” Three identical gasps filled the room. Georgiana Burns looked into the shocked eyes of her younger brother and sisters and shrugged. “I’m sorry. But Papa’s replacement will be here in a week, so we have to vacate the vicarage. We’ve nowhere else to go, and grandfather’s sword is the only thing we have of sufficient value to sustain us.” Mama’s few pieces of jewellery wouldn’t fetch nearly enough, and could be put to better use when the time came to find husbands for her sisters. But the sword—now that would lease them a cottage, clothe and feed all four of them, and see to Richard’s education. “But that sword belonged to St. George himself,” Willa protested, looking up through the lenses of her spectacles. “It slew the dragon. We can’t sell it. It’s our heritage.” Georgie leaned across the table to squeeze her youngest sister’s shoulder. “We must, dearest. There’s no other way.” The sword had been her grandfather’s prized possession, and she did hate to sell it. Not that she believed her family was genuinely descended from the St. George, or that the sword in question was his, but it was very, very old, and the gems in the cross on the pommel were real. “Actually, I think there is.” They all swivelled to look at Hetty. Her usually dreamy blue eyes were clouded and she gnawed on her full lower lip. “Squire Partridge did mention…” “No!” He’d mentioned it to Georgie, too, and it was one of the reasons she wanted to get out of the village as quickly as possible. She had no intention of selling her sister to the fat, fifty-something squire. And she didn’t trust him not to take what he couldn’t obtain through honourable means. Hetty sighed. “Well, then you could find a husband. It seems to me that that would solve everyone’s problems.” “Certainly, dear. I’ll run right out and do that.” Georgie shook her head. While pretty, blonde Hetty was already fighting off suitors, Georgie had never had that problem. With flame-red hair and a too plump figure, she wasn’t the sort men fought duels over. Even at only two and twenty, she already knew she was permanently on the shelf. “I know another way.” Twelve-year-old Richard slowed his inhalation of the stew to speak up. “I heard the squire and the Lord Mayor talking today…” “Richard, what have I told you about eavesdropping?” Georgie looked down her nose and tapped her fingers on the table. “But Georgie, this is important,” he argued. “There’s going to be a big meeting tomorrow at the church. Lord Weir may even be there. They’re going to have some sort of competition among the maidens of the village for Midsummer, and the winner gets a fortune.”
