About Drakon's Promise

Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon.
He's both.
He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.
When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.

Introducing Darius Varkas

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We're happy to have you here today.
Name: Darius Varkas
Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A small village that has long since crumbled to dust
Profession: Entrepreneur
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): I'm a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
In my human form, I'm 6'10" with black shoulder-length hair and green eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the entire left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It's a birthmark and is a swirling pattern that is bronze and outline in the same green as my eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
That would be my Sarah. She's the most beautiful, most amazing woman in the world. Brilliant too. After all, she chose me.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a drakon so I like my privacy. I'm not even sure why I agreed to do this interview. *grumbles*
Please tell us about your education.
I've lived four thousand years. I speak and write many languages, including some long forgotten by time. I've learned alongside mankind. Airplanes were a particular favorite invention of mine, as being a pilot allows me to take to the skies nowadays when it isn't as easy to simply shift and soar. Computers I can use but I don't particularly like them.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I've lived for a very long time. I'm also an earth drakon, which means I know how to find precious metals and gems. I've accumulated quite a hoard over the course of my life. And like any self-respecting drakon, I guard what is mine.
Are you close to family?
My brothers are my family and we are very close. We had different mothers but the same dragon sire. Of course, now I have Sarah. They all love her.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
Of course I can keep a secret. I'm a drakon. Of course, telling all of you about myself isn't exactly keeping that a secret.
What secrets do you know about people around you that you do NOT share?
I know all my brothers' secrets, but I would never betray their trust.
What is your biggest need?
My biggest need is to wipe the Knights of the Dragon from the face of the planet. They want to capture me and my kind for their own profit and to prolong their lives by drinking our blood. We were content to leave them alone, but they will not leave us in peace. And they threatened Sarah and will always be a threat to her and to my brothers. They have to be eliminated.
What are your biggest hopes and dreams?
I dream of being able to live my life in peace with Sarah.
What is your biggest personal flaw?
I have no flaws. *turns to Sarah* Stop laughing. She says I'm set in my ways and stubborn. Overprotective too. But since I'm always right, I don't see that as a flaw.
Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?
Sarah has the power to destroy me. She is my heart. I trust her more than I thought it possible to every trust a woman.
What would you like to tell your writer?
I want to thank her for bringing Sarah into my life. I also want to let her know this is my first and last interview. I'm done.
