Dead Sexy Dragon Blog Tour - Guest Post + Review + Giveaway: Dead Sexy Dragon (Dragon Heat #1) by Lolita Lopez

Guest Post
Dungeons and Dragons
From the moment Cora appears on Stig's front porch, she senses he's hiding something from her. He reluctantly offers her refuge in his home with one stipulation: she must stay away from the door that leads to the basement.
But telling her that door is off-limits only ignites her curiosity…
Dead Sexy Dragon Excerpt
With her to-do list complete, Cora set aside her phone and laptop and wondered how to spend the rest of her day. Used to the hustle and bustle of the bakery, she found the house incredibly quiet, almost unnervingly so. How could Stig bear the solitude? Perhaps he found the animal residents of the surrounding woods company enough. The thought of said animals goosed her memory. She eyed the kitchen and shoved off the couch. Last night, she’d heard something odd down in his basement. She’d meant to tell Stig about it but he’d left in such a hurry. The thought of bothering him now wasn’t all that appealing. His abrupt departure had made it fairly clear he wasn’t in the mood for chitchat.
Cora stood in front of the forbidden door. There could be something down there, something hurt and in need of help. Curiosity triumphed over sense and Cora twisted the handle. The unlocked door creaked ominously as she drew it open and stepped through the doorway. Steps led down into darkness. She cautiously felt the wall on either side of the staircase but detected no light switch.
She retreated from the darkness into the safety of the kitchen and located a flashlight in one of the drawers. She flicked it on and carefully descended the stairs. Moist, pungent air engulfed her. She listened intently for any noises but heard only the faint drip of water. A plumbing leak?
The light beam bounced side to side. She expected to see a basement of some kind, four walls and shelves, but there was nothing. As far as she could tell, there was only the stairwell leading down to a cement floor.
Her internal alarm clanged loudly. This wasn’t right. As she reached the bottom of the stairs, her worst fears were realized. The staircase dead-ended at a large metal door with a keypad.
Cora’s blood went cold. This wasn’t a basement. This was a holding cell.
As if the fires of hell nipped at her heels, she rushed up the steps. Panting and shaking, Cora slammed the basement door. She dropped the flashlight back in the drawer and ran back into the living room where she promptly flopped down on the sofa and tried to reconcile what she’d seen.
What was Stig keeping down in that basement? Was it something illegal? He obviously didn’t want anyone to know about it. Oh God! What if he found out she’d been down there?
“Calm down.” Cora spoke sternly to calm her nerves. Stig was a standup guy. He’d been a marine, for crying out loud. Surely there was some other explanation for what she’d uncovered. It was likely to be simple and not in the least bit sinister.
Of course, she couldn’t ask him because he’d pretty much forbidden her to go down there. What was that saying about curiosity and cats?
Her gaze fell on the limestone mantel. There were pictures of Stig with similarly burly men she’d never met. Framed photos of Stig and Hector and other marines took center stage. They’d been taken on various deployments and during their downtime stateside. In most of them, Hector and Stig were side by side, arms slung over one another’s shoulders as they grinned.
The sight calmed her. Whatever was going on down in that basement, in that holding cell, she had to trust him. Hector had trusted him implicitly. She had to believe her brother’s judgment of Stig’s character was true. Those men had fought in the fiercest of battles and had depended upon one another for their very lives. Surely Hector would have seen Stig’s malicious side if he had one. And yet, she still had to know what was going on.
Cora took a steadying breath and made her decision. Tonight she’d ask Stig about the basement.

Synopsis from Goodreads

The last thing dragon shifter Stig Wyvern needs is his dead friend’s kid sister showing up on his doorstep. He’s just minutes away from entering a mating phase. Sharing his isolated house with the young woman he’s desperately lusted after for quite some time is a recipe for disaster.

But Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. That he’s deliciously sexy and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is just a bonus.

Cora quickly realizes Stig is hiding something from her. To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And just what the hell is going on down in the basement at night?

Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere...
     Dead Sexy Dragon is a super sexy new read from author Lolita Lopez. In this book, we follow a man named Stig who is living in hell right now. He is a dragon and he is going through a mating heat. This drives him to become terribly lusty and forces him to become a dragon every night. He hates that he must lock himself up to make sure he doesn't hurt anyone. But things change when his late friend's sister, Cora, comes knocking at his door in tears. Cora is in a lot of trouble and he will do anything he can to help her. But he hopes he can hide his other half from her or else he might end up hurting her.
     Oh I can't wait for more of this series. I am in love. I really loved Stig. He is an amazing book boyfriend. He was insanely sexy and strong. I loved how much he worked to make sure people around him were safe. I really liked Cora as well. I don't blame her for wanting Stig. He was mouthwatering. There was one point I wanted to smack some sense into though. She really did piss me off. I found her a bit selfish at that point, but I guess it was her fear talking. But I still needed to get that off my chest.

     This story was a quick read and it was super sexy. I loved Lopez's take on dragons and knights. I love the idea of the war. It is quite the update from the usual we are use to. Knights are the bad guys that think all dragons need to be eliminated. Stig and his Brotherhood of dragons have been put together to protect those around them. They do follow a very strong set of rules though, no dragon is to be with a human woman. But Stig may be willing to throw all of that out of the window for Cora even if it makes things worse.

     I really enjoyed this story. I will definitely read it again after I read book 2, which I have already. This book is fast paced, action packed, and insanely hot. Definitely don't read this in public. You will not want to put this book down when you start it. You will fall in love with this book. I am looking forward to more books in this series for sure. I am a fan and you should be too.



Lolita Lopez Bio:

While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.
As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.
Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella.
The rest is history.
Lo lives in Texas with her husband, daughter and big blubbering Great Dane with mommy issues. She also writes super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica with a New Adult flavor under the pen name Roxie Rivera.
