Aloha to Nancy Lee Badger and SHIMMER - THE BEGINNING

Nancy Lee Badger brings you a love story called SHIMMER, a prequel to her Clan of Dragon series. A long time ago, off the coast of Scotland’s Isle of Skye, something incredible began. Among lush green forests, flower-filled meadows, and black jagged mountains, stagnant pools of algae and muck rush to the sea. Robina, daughter of the fairy king, threw wish dust to create a cool, clear, sweet-smelling fairy pool. When a huge black winged creature fell from the sky, she feared her very life was in danger. She never thought she would lose her heart.

Duff, a dragon, was dying, and his hopes to find a mate and produce offspring looked bleak. Drinking from a pool at the base of a waterfall, he sensed another otherworldly creature lurking nearby. A dragon, claiming she was no dragon, knocked him off his feet. When she threw the dust, Duff learned about her ability to shift. As they fought human hunters, and a dark fairy, Robina stole his heart. He surprised her by shifting multiple times without her magical help.

Nancy Lee Badger wrote this novella to explain how dragons on the Scottish island of Skye became shape-shifters. She has filled this paranormal fantasy with romance, danger, fairies, and characters you will love, and one or two you might hate. Enjoy this explanation of her very powerful series, Clan of Dragons with Spark, Smoke, and Smolder.

  6. Just had to say that I love the beautiful cover of Shimmer and those chocolate chip shortbreads are delicious.

  7. I would love to visit Scotland. On a cruise we stopped off at Lerwick in the Shetland Islands and enjoyed a day of touring there. Our Scottish guide was very friendly and informative. Fun day! Congrats on your release of Shimmer!

  9. I love Scotland, dragons, and shortbread. Of the three, I have only been able to connect with the shortbread. Haven't tried the chocolate chip variety, but will have to give it a try. We hope to visit Scotland in the next couple of years. Maybe we will catch sight of one of the Scottish dragons.

  10. The Walker's Chocolate chip is lovely, and I am thrilled I can find it on store shelves even here in Raleigh, North Carolina!
