Several centuries ago, Drorgan was cursed into stone. Every twenty five years he is given one night and one day to find a woman willing to accept him in both forms.
It's the price to pay for his past behavior.
As a lost, lonely little girl Rhonda Butterbaugh was rescued by the dragon in the stone and she has never forgotten her fierce protector. It sparked her fascination with all things dragon. If only they were real. There are no such things as fairy tales, however.
When she is attacked on her way home, and wakes up in a cursed magic castle, complete with a fierce dragon shifting lord, her life takes a turn for the surreal.
Determined to break the curse and rescue Drorgan and his kin, she hasn’t counted on Drorgan’s resistance.
Dragons aren’t supposed to be noble.

Read this and love it! That's what I did. The world this author has shared is full of wonder and dragons and I hope there will be another book following this one.
Let me tell you a fairy tale. A very naughty one at that. It begins with a very bad dragon. Once upon a time, quite a long time ago, a very angry dragon named Drorgan became very upset that his invitation to a wedding got lost. He crashed the wedding and caused great havoc. Because of this, he, and his whole kingdom, were turned into stone. The curse stated that he was allowed out of the stone once every 25 years. He had 24 hours to find someone who would love him for what and who he was. Enter Rhonda. When she was just a little girl, Drorgan saved her when she wandered off from home. Now, he rescues her again when she's attacked on the way home from work. Drorgan takes her to his castle and lands, which are frozen in time. Can Rhonda be the woman to break the curse? Drorgan thinks she may be, but he doesn't want to condemn her to a life trapped in his reality. It will take Rhonda and a special little girl to get a stubborn dragon to admit that everything he could ever want is right under his nose...or is that snout? This was a delightful story with magic, dragons, suspense, and with Doris O'Connor at the helm, very hot sex scenes with a very Alpha Dominant dragon. Just yummy. And so very hard to put down. You'll have to grab a copy and see. And the best part? Rhonda is a real, live person, who is just as warm and loving as the Rhonda in the book. Doris has a knack for taking real people and weaving them into a story and making it incredible!
After being saved one night as scared child alone on the street Rhonda has spent her life talking about ‘her dragon’. As an adult she not only collects them but as a librarian she can spend countless hours reading about them. Drorgan has spent hundreds of years cursed. He spends all but one night every 25 years cast as a stone dragon. He has no hope that he will ever find love to break the curse. After an attack and near death, Drorgan once again saves Rhonda and brings her back to his castle. He knows he shouldn’t do it but he recognizes the scared child in her eyes. When she wakes up days after she’s attacked she knows immediately that ‘her dragon’ saved her. He’s the one in her dreams, and the one that everyone in her life said she was crazy because she knew dragons were real. Life at the castle is different. It’s a different time. Drorgan isn’t sure that Rhonda would want to stay and give up her life for him. Here at the castle, these two must find a way to each other, or find a cure to the curse. But a shocking revelation might just mean the end of everything. Will she stay, will she go, does he want her, or will outside forces control it all for them. What a wonderful story. A classic fairytale, instead of Beauty and the Beast it’s the Librarian and the Dragon. Either way it’s an amazing story which I loved.
