Five Telltale Signs You’ve Pissed Off a Dragon-Shifter


Coreene Callahan

First off, I’d like to say a huge thank you to All Things Urban Fantasy for inviting me to visit today. I have a blast writing the Dragonfury Novels and am thrilled I have the opportunity to hang out and share a few tidbits about the Nightfury dragon-warriors with you.

So let’s get started.

Today, I thought I’d explain how I stay alive while writing about dragon-shifters. They are, after all, a prickly bunch and don’t like the fact I’m writing books about them, never mind telling others that Dragonkind exists. So in the spirit of self-preservation, here are a few hard and fast rules I live by after I’ve pissed one of them off (something that happens more often than you’d think). This way if you ever meet one, you’ll know what to do, how to react and ah…where to run.

Fury of Fire (Dragonfury, #1)   Fury of Ice (Dragonfury, #2)  Fury of Seduction (Dragonfury, #3)

So here is a list of the warning signs. I hope it stands you in good stead if you ever rub a Dragon-Shifter the wrong way.

5 Telltale Signs You’ve Pissed Off a Dragon-Shifter:

  1. His eyes start to glow.
  2. Twin columns of flame rise from his nostrils, much like mini tornadoes.
  3. The air fogs as steam rolls off his scales.
  4. His spiked tail begins to rattle, like a venomous snake’s right before it strikes.
  5. He develops a facial tick that pulls the side of his lip up and bares one huge fang.

If you see any of these signs, it’s a good idea to start running. Finding an excellent hiding spot might be advisable too. Pick one ahead of time so you know where you’re headed, cuz…yeah. If he gets a hold of you, you might find yourself staring at his retreating form after he leaves you in the middle of nowhere. Not something you want to experience. Trust me, it’s never a fun walk home.

Fury of Seduction (Dragonfury series, book 3), I’m excited to say, was released just this week! And guess what? I’m giving a copy away. So, comment below and tell me the first place you thought of hiding while reading the list and enter the giveaway for a chance to win an signed copy of Fury of Seduction.

Good luck everybody!

Thanks again for inviting me to be a guest today.

Call it kismet. Call it payback after years of locker room talk and ice rink antics, but whatever you call it, the action better be heart stopping, the magic electric, and the story wicked, good fun.

After graduating with honors in psychology and working as an interior designer, she finally succumbed to her overactive imagination and returned to her first love: writing. And when she’s not writing, she’s dreaming of magical worlds full of dragon-shifters, elite assassins, and romance that’s too hot to handle. Callahan currently lives in Canada with her family and writing buddy, a fun-loving golden retriever.

Fury of Seduction (Dragonfury, #3)


November 13th 2012 by Montlake Romance


Successful landscape designer Tania Solares prides herself on living by her own terms, relying on no man to provide for her. But her carefully controlled life takes a turn for the extraordinary when her inquiry into the disappearance of her best friend thrusts her between two warring factions of dragon-shifters. Suddenly Tania’s survival depends on Mac, a newly initiated dragon-warrior who will break every rule to keep her safe.

Now that Tania knows the truth about Dragonkind, returning to her old life is too grave a risk. Ivar, leader of the Razorbacks, plots to decimate the human race, and Tania is just the tool he needs. Despite the danger, Mac cannot deny her a choice: Trade the independence she’s fought so hard to achieve for safety in a magical world, or turn her back on the man she’s grown to love in order to reclaim a freedom that might not last? It is an impossible choice. And yet a sacrifice must be made…

      Thanks Rita! And hope away…there’s nothing like a dragon-shifter that’s hot-to-trot. lol

      Sharon…you might be out of luck if you hide at the bottom of a lake. Mac’s a water dragon. He’d find you for sure!

      Jen: a concrete wall is good plan. As long as it’s not Wick. He’s blow that bad boy up, no problem!

      Penni: other side of the world? Excellent strategy, especially if it’s somewhere like the South of France (always wanted to go there!) Just make sure it isn’t Prague…too many Dragonkind there! 😀

      Happy Friday everybody!

  1. Rita

    Oh I don’t think I would hide..I think I would hope he was just really excited to see me!

  2. Susan S.

    I think I would be having a long walk home since I can’t think of a good hidiong place. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. Sheryl

    I think I wouldn’t have to hide. Love the dragons and congrats to the new release.

  4. erinf1

    Congrats on the newest release and thanks for the great post and giveaway! I’m doing a happy dance right now cuz I have the first book in my TBR pile and I finally have time to read it 🙂 I’d choose one of those nuclear bomb resistant underground bunkers!

  5. Chinyere Ezinwanyi

    Congratulations on book 3. I recently got book 1 due to a recommendation of a friend on goodreads. She told me since BDB was my favorite series, that your series was very similar but with dragons. I look forward to reading Book 1.

    The first place you thought of hiding while reading the list was my closet.

  6. Elizabeth H.

    Congratulations on the release! I love dragon shifter books!! I would totally be hiding in a fireproof closet! Thanks for sharing the 5 warning signs and for the awesome giveaway!

  7. Karen Wapinski

    Congrats on the new release!
    I don’t know nehere I’d hide; lol I’m one of those low-chance-of-survival people who get paralyzed with fear

  8. KmichelleC87

    way out in the middle of the ocean somewhere


  9. Barb P

    Well, the first place I thought of was a lake, but after careful consideration, I think that I would try to find a way to calm him down ** Grin ** and I can definitely think of a few!!! I love this series and can’t wait to get my hands on Fury of Seduction!

    • Coreene Callahan

      No fire dragon would, Mary, but (don’t yah just hate a “but”?)…there’s always Rikar. He’s a frost dragon. Cold, icy caves are his thing! 🙂

  10. Joanne B

    Congrats on the new release. How about a nice cold walk-in freezer. You know the old kind you can lock from the inside and that is heatproof. I think that would work. Of course, I’d have to bring somebody with me to keep me warm, but that’s okay, I can sacrifice some body heat.

  11. Grannie_4_7

    Well, since I don’t run very fast anymore, or climb trees like I used to, or swim like a fish, maybe I’ll try to sweet talk him with some yummy homemade goodies and a calm gentle smile.

  12. Amy

    Errr….I thought of just hiding under the bed. Not sure there’s anywhere safe LOL

  13. Heather Fowler

    I’m thinking underground bunker or deep under water. Although… I’d be tempted to try and calm him, because, you know… hot. 😉

  14. Kai W.

    I would be hiding under the blanket on my bed. If I hold still, I won’t be detected.

  15. Stephanie

    I would have to hide in my closet. For some strange reason, I feel safest there!

  16. Denise Z

    I would hide in the man-child’s room; cinder block walls and who knows what else lurks there, no one would dare to enter LOL On second thought perhaps I should brave the dragon 🙂

  17. Lori H .

    Hmmm… I don’t think there’s a safe place but I might try a cellar or basement with a secret hideaway. Congrats on the new release! Your books sound awesome. Can’t wait to read them 🙂

  18. Shauni

    Everyone knows the safest place to hide from an angry dragon is behind another angry dragon.. you might not stay safe but watching the sheer smexiness as the muscles flex would be worth dying for.

    Can’t wait to read this book!!

  19. DeAnna Schultz

    I’d probably run to something like an tornado shelter (if available) if not somewhere in a basement like a closet.
    This is a new-to-me author and series. Thanks for sharing and a chance to win!
    Dragons are a paranormal favorite of mine.

  20. Barbara Elness

    I’d hide in the vault at the bank if I could make it there. Otherwise, probably the closet. 😀

  21. Janie McGaugh

    Sigh! My first thought was to hide under my bed but, of course, the bed would have to be nearby! Otherwise, some kind of concrete culvert sounds like a good idea.

  22. Proserpine

    Hi! Thanks for this chance! I really enjoyed the first book!!!! As for the question, I won’t pisse-off a dragon-shifter and I would gladly hide with them in their secret mountain/cave for ever as long as I have a sexy dragon-shifter for myself! LOL But, if I DO pisse-off a dragon-shifter…. Well, maybe I try to hide in the forest, since he won’t be able to follow me easily through the trees??? I’m not good at hiding, really! Always lost a this game…

  23. Terri Barnett

    I’m going to look for a small cave, one to small for him but just right for me to hide in. Thank you for this chance to win one of your books.

  24. kyla whitley

    Hey Coreene! Love paranormal romance of any kinds. Looking forward to reading your new book. Love the cover. Thank you for sharing! 😀
