Meet Tarrant Cooper from Drakon's Prey @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNR

Welcome Tarrant Cooper from Drakon's Prey, a new paranormal romance.
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children's books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it's impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can't turn away any longer.
When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper's secret underground lair, he's both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn't lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.
He's drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she's a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

Introducing Tarrant Cooper

Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A small village in the Middle East that has long since gone to dust.
Profession: I basically control the airwaves.
Ethnicity/ Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I'm a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
In my human form, I'm 6'8" with short black hair and blue 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 silver and outlined in the same blue as my eyes.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a drakon. That means I don't like to talk about myself. The less people who know about my kind, the better.
Who is the significant other in your life?
My Valeriya. She's one of a kind and she's mine. *growls possessively*
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I'm self-taught and widely-experienced. *laughs* I've been around for a very, very long time. I've watched mankind go from mostly illiterate to everyone having books and information at their fingertips. From primate communication to now having a good chunk of the population walking around with a cell phone stuck against their ear.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I'm comfortable in my below-ground lair. It has everything I need. My biggest expense is my computer equipment. Money doesn't mean much to me. I have more than enough for a hundred lifetimes. And I can always make more.
Are you close to family?
I'm close to my brothers. There isn't anything I wouldn't do or no one I wouldn't kill to protect them. And now I have my Valeriya. She's everything to me.
How well do you know your neighbors?
*snorts* I don't have neighbors. I live in an underground bunker in the middle of nowhere. And that's the way I like it.
What secrets do you know about people around you that you do NOT share?
Nothing is a secret from me. Information is my passion, my life's blood. If it's out there, I can find it. There is nowhere I can't go online. I mostly don't care what people do as long as they leave me and mine alone. If they don't...
What are your biggest hopes and dreams?
I want to destroy the Knights of the Dragon and live in peace with Valeriya. The Knights have been hunting my kind for centuries and we've mostly left them alone. This time, they've gone too far and I'm taking the hunt to them.
