HEA for Dragons?

By: Kali Willows

Dragons, dragons, everywhere! My obsession with dragons never ceases to amaze me. After publishing three 1NS dragon stories, the forth and final one is now here!
Dragon’s Bond is set in 1952 San Francisco, and it’s the story of Shen Li and Lien Long who were the beginning founders of the Double Dragon’s Blood legacy.
Caught in the grips of tragedy, this parahuman couple and their torrid love affair brought about a scandalous conclusion neither thought they would survive! Years later, they will come face to face with their past. Will they get their happily ever after? You will have to read to find out…
Without giving too much away, I wanted to ask our readers, what is your favorite kind of HEA in the 1Night Stand series? “Happily for now,” is that good enough? Is a happily ever after too much to grasp in this series of 1Night Stands? What are some of your favorite 1NS endings?


Dragon’s Bond Blurb: 
In 1952, it’s not proper for a woman to chase after a man, but Lien Long is no ordinary woman. Shattered by his abandonment after their single night of passion ends in tragedy, she travels from a life of sexual servitude in Shanghai to San Francisco to chase her career, her dreams, and her one true love. Armed with new knowledge of her dark lineage and at the encouragement of a colleague, she enlists the help of Madame Eve to arrange a 1 Night Stand, in hopes to find her way into the arms of her soul mate once more.
Cursed with an ancient legacy he knew nothing about, Shen Li flees to San Francisco after the devastating death of his twin brother. Tormented by the guilt and shame of his indulgence in lust and his longing he cannot diminish for his beloved, he accepts the advice of his mentor and boss, to contact the 1 Night Stand services. He seeks an escape of passion to release his sins of the past and move on with his life. What awaits Shen is eye-opening truth about the life he had forsaken. Will he find the night of fiery paradise he hopes for?


Madame Evangeline, 
   Only once, have I tasted the sweetness of divine passion, and it cost me my soul and my brother’s life. That night will haunt me forever. Since devastation struck, by the fate and shame my selfish desire brought upon my family, I have rejected the love I pine for.
   It is with a heavy heart I confess, my will wanes, but I can never have her again. My ache for my beloved grows with each day that passes. Although this request will never diminish my desire for her, it is my hope, to at least alleviate the torment of my lust that lingers, so that I may move forward and release my sins of the past.
   I left China for my job to begin a new life here in San Francisco. Perhaps, if I indulge in the arms of another woman for a single night, I can at last move on. After great consideration of a close friend’s suggestion, I seek your help, to be matched for a 1Night Stand. My only request is for a woman with jade green eyes. It is the one trait of her eternal beauty I wish I could admire a final time.
   Kindest Regards,
   Shen Li

  1. Personally, I'm good with either type of ending for this series. I know going in that the story will be abbreviated and even rushed so I don't expect shall we call it a more realistic ending for the time frame. I do need the story to have development and closure though and not just be a quick hot snippet.

    This series sounds really good. Thanks for sharing about it.

  2. I can't wait to read. ;)

  3. @Sophia,

    thank you for commenting. I think you're absolutely right about realistic expectations in the series given the founding theme of a one night stand ;-)
