Overview

Sometimes, killing the dragon is the easy part.

The medieval village of Markesew was besieged, its virgins demanded in tribute, so when St. George the Dragonslayer arrived from modern times — in his silver pants and lace-up boots — his quest was clear. Being a professional wrestler didn’t qualify him for the task, but a sword and imagination were all he needed…. or so he thought, until he came up against the mysterious mistress of Devil’s Mount.

Twelve years ago Alizon had been sent to die in the jaws of the serpent. Too tough for dragon teeth then, she’d never surrender to some foreigner in shiny hose now. She feared first for the secret world she’d built atop her mountain…. but as the hero approached, Alizon realized it was not the dragon’s armor he’d come to pierce, but the scales around her own ferocious heart.

Editorial Reviews

Everything Romantic!
...a fine fantasy of heroism, healing, courage, and of course, love. Heck, it makes both the fantasy reader and romance reader in me radiant with pleasure the way only a good book could.
Romance Reviews Today
Lisa Cach reveals a masterpiece of creativity in writing what appears on
the surface to be a comedy; but discerning readers will discover a story of
great depth as they unravel the parable to find the morals hidden beneath the
surface.
All About Romance
It was fun. It was funny. It had only the teeniest, tiniest, most negligible bit of angst – just enough for character development. It has the honor of being the only book I’ve read for review this year where I did not count the pages. The story flew, and the pages almost turned themselves.

Meet the Author

Lisa Cach is the award-winning author of more than twenty romantic novels and novellas, ranging across sub-genres from Paranormal, Historical, Contemporary, and Chick Lit, to Young Adult. Her novel “Dating Without Novocaine” was named one of Waldenbooks’ “Best Books of 2002,” and she is a two-time finalist for the prestigious RITA Award from the Romance Writers of America.

Ms. Cach was raised in the moss and mud of the Pacific Northwest, where she still suffers through the long grey winters today. She has used travel to inspire her fiction for decades, and in service to her art has hiked the foothills of the Himalaya, picked leeches off her legs in the jungles of Borneo, eaten dinner in the childhood home of Vlad the Impaler in Transylvania, and worn out her feet following an ancient pilgrimage route in the southwest of France. She has sailed the Caribbean as a working crew member of a research schooner, and taught writing aboard the MV Explorer on a voyage up the Amazon. Her professional background includes teaching conversational English in Japan, an M.A. in counseling psychology, and several years working the graveyard shift on a mental health crisis line.

When not writing or traveling, you’ll find her gardening, drawing, hiking with her husband, or digging for treasures at estate sales. And, of course, reading.
