Seeress for the mob…
Emilia Dunmoor is a woman out of place and time. Thrust into the modern world, she scrapes out a meager living telling fortunes to curious tourists. It's a bleak, lonely fall from the life she once led, when she was beloved, when she belonged. Then the dream comes again, where she's hunted by a dragon…
The Dragon of Russia…
Vadim Dragovich takes what he wants. And when Emilia's small fingers close around his for a palm reading, he knows he wants her. Centuries ago, even his wizardry couldn't prevent him from succumbing to a predator even more dangerous. But Emilia's gift of foresight will make him invulnerable—and ensure he's the most powerful player in California's Russian mob.
Captured by the Dragon, Emilia's only weapons are her wits and her gift. But as she's drawn deeper into Vadim's violent world, she begins to see another side to this frightening, contradictory man. And she realizes with heart-wrenching clarity that her choice comes down to her freedom…or saving the life of a warlord with a noble heart.

About the Author
I have a thing for dark lords, dark heroes and antiheroes. I tend to root for villains, because they're usually a lot more interesting than heroes. But they have to be complex, nuanced villains who have good reasons for their villainy. I love variations on the Beauty and the Beast story, awkward courtships and slow-burn romances.
If want to take a look at my other fiction (usually featuring dark wizards), you can find me at FlyingTigerPress.com. I have a Tumbr account I don't know how to use at kathyswizards and one on Facebook I do at Kathlena L. Contreras. Come say hi!
