A New Release & A GIVEAWAY with Beverly Ovalle...

Stealing Hope
A Dragon’s Fated Heart

Amazon Bestseller in Erotica Paranormal AND Erotica Science Fiction 

Technology is but a distant memory, a legend. Another legend awakens on an erotic hunt, hungry for the human fated to complete this dragon’s soul.

The apocalypse has come and gone. 
Those who survived learned to adapt. 
Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies.

Upon eruption of a volcano, Ari awakens to a changed world, and a knowing that his dragon's mate is near. He saves her twice—once as a dragon, and again as a man—and wins her confidence. 

Hope cried out, moaning, “just change me with pleasure?” 

Hope is restless and unfulfilled until she meets Ari, the man of her fantasies. The sensual tension between them heightens with every touch. When their passion explodes, Hope gets pulled into the dragon's mating ritual...and into a world of erotic sensation she never dreamed existed but now cannot live without. The dragon binds his mate to him with a ritual that shows Hope her true nature in this humorous erotic romance.

“Try again, this time with the truth.”
Ari looked at her and just knew that scowl would keep their hatchlings in line when they misbehaved. He scowled back but Hope didn’t back down.
“Because you’re my mate.” There he said it, now to see how she reacted.
Hope was still glaring at him, not softening at all. “How did you know that? You’d never seen me before in your life.” Hope scowled again and Ari’s heart melting. That Hope was aggravated and disbelieved him was okay, she was still locked in his arms and not struggling to get away.
“I knew you were in pain. It’s what sent me and Crag out here. I was desperate to find you. I had no choice.” Ari stared into Hope’s eyes, begging her to believe him.
“Hmm.” Hope narrowed her eyes at him.
Ari could practically feel the wheels in her head turn. Ari watched Hope.
She sat there thinking.
He would wait patiently for her decision.
“You were the one who stole me.”
Ari nodded then shook his head. “I didn’t steal you. I saved you.”
Hope glared at him. “You know how to get back to where you found me?”
Ari slowly nodded his head. “I know how to get back home from there.” Ari froze and tightened his arms around her.
“You’re my mate.”
“I’m human.”
“I’m not letting you go.” Ari’s voice was fierce and he pulled her against him. He ignored his brothers’ eyes on them.
Hope shoved at him, trying to loosen his arms.
Ari didn’t budge. Hope’s face was buried in his chest and he let her anger rise. It was a flush of heat over his senses.
Hope turned her head and bit him.

Writing about dragons shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that knows me. My dining room is after all, filled with dragons. They line the mantels above the door frames and sit on my dining room table as candle holders. My son surprisingly is the only one that gifts me dragons. Writing romance, another non surprise. 
But about the apocalypse? It’s because I’m a closet prepper. I have a little safety kit, ready to go. I don’t have a ‘go bag’ because I’m always using things out of it. So it’s hard to keep it together. I have an emergency sewing kit, an emergency fishing kit and collapsible water containers. Maybe not the best prepper, but I think I’d survive. At least for a while!
Perhaps it’s because I miss the days before being constantly connected. I could hole up in my room for days and the only contact I had was my mom yelling through the door to see if I was alive. I didn’t have to talk to anyone if I didn’t want to. With Wifi and smart phones I sometimes get social overloaded. I’m an introvert at heart. I like to skulk in the corners at parties and observe.
Writing about life after, without cell phones, and computers is just my way of going back to simpler times. When families get together to play and talk, not like now when they are in a room but glued to their cell phones. When neighborhoods knew each other and social was visiting each other’s homes or talking over the fence. So my apocalypse is more of a throwback. But man survived before technology so they should again.
Of course in my world there are dragons to make it interesting…

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.
Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.
An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.
A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty five years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.
