Meet D.R. Grady--Author of The Dragon Chronicles, Book 2: #Shifting, #Paranormal #Romance via Karen Rose Smith

Today, I'd like you to meet D.R. Grady.  I first spoke to D.R. at length when we were signing buddies at an event sponsored by our writers' group, Central PA Romance Writers.  She's a lovely woman and a talented writer.  I hope you enjoy her new release of The Dragon Chronicles--Book Two: Shifting.

Here is a message from D.R. Grady.

Hi, Readers--
You’ve likely been at a function, standing in a group of people, and after a few moments, realize with heart-dropping intensity that you don’t belong. Often, everyone in this same grouping realizes this as well, maybe before you catch on.

This terrible situation has shaped my newest heroine, Dr. Keely Bennett’s, life from the time she was a child. It is her unfortunate reality. She is supposedly a part of the Bennett family, but not really, because Keely has never shifted into a wolf. Therefore, she has never felt like a true member of her own family. In her mind, she’s always been lacking, despite being a renowned healer in the paranormal community.

Her new mate, Hugh Blackwolfe, a wolf, and his pack only exacerbate this difference. Can she overcome her fears and faults to be the woman her mate needs? Or will she allow this inability to govern, and ruin, her life? 


The Dragon Chronicles Book 2: Shifting

Dr. Keely Bennett, a healer at Paranym University, can’t shift.

Her mate, Hugh Blackwolfe doesn’t mind—but his pack sure does. Hugh is the strongest alpha on the east coast and the pack’s single females challenge Keely, forcing her to find a shifter willing to meet and win this challenge for her, so that she and Hugh can mate.

Keely’s dragon best friend, Lindy, with her controller and mate, Alex, also struggle with shifting. They must learn the nuances of how Lindy shifts, and soon.

After several random attacks, and with an unknown enemy gunning for all of them, time may be running out. As if Keely doesn’t already feel unworthy, the dragon appears to be calling everyone but her to her team of allies.


Keely’s bedroom door opened and her wonderful scent preceded her up the hall. She joined them seconds later.

Hugh’s mind blanked.

“You’re beautiful.” His voice strangled as he rose to cross the room to her. Taking her hand, he kissed the back of it.

Her smile warmed him and his wolf—who viewed their mate with a lot of satisfaction. “Thank you. I hope this Meet and Greet is to be fairly casual?” She used a hand to encompass her sweater, skirt, and boots.

Was her attire casual? His pulse picked up as her scent wafted over him again.

“Yes.” Although to what he was agreeing, he didn’t know. Eyes locked on her, he stroked a hand down her smooth cheek.

His. This woman, this magnificent woman, was his. Hugh’s heart soared as he and his wolf savored her close proximity.

When Clare Thaddeus' sister was abducted, she was five and her family fell apart. Now, twenty-seven years later, there's a chance Lynnie could still be alive! Divorced parents, a rebellious daughter, and a devoted sister find their lives in turmoil once again. This time, will crisis tear them apart or will forgotten love knit them together once more?


USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 91st novel will be released in 2016.

Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens.  And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.

Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
