#GuestPost #ReleaseWeek - Dominated by the Dragon By Kryssie Fortune

The Cullinan Diamond
Doesn’t look much, does it?
This a picture of the biggest uncut diamond ever mined. One Black diamond, the Serigio, was bigger, but some believe black diamonds are relics of a meteor that crashed into the earth and discount it. 

The Cullenen was mined in South Africa in January 1905. The chairman of the mining company, Sir Thomas Cullenen presented the diamond to King George Vll.

It weighed an unprecedented 3106.75 carats. Obviously it needed cutting and polishing. After studying it, Joseph Asscher decided to cleave it through a defective spot. He used a specially designed knife, but the knife broke on the first attempt. The story goes that he had medical professionals on standby when he tried again. This time, when he struck the diamond, it split perfectly in two. Rumor has it he fainted dead away once he’d made the cut. Another story—one I like better—is that he opened a bottle of champagne.

He split the stone into nine big diamonds.The largest stone was set in the royal scepter and weighs 530.2 carats.

The second stone went into the Imperial State crown. Both can be seen in the White tower in the Tower of London. I guess it’s true. A diamond is forever. But why my interest in diamonds?

My latest book, Dominated by the Dragon centers around diamonds. The heroine, Hope is heir to a diamond dealer’s fortune and an expert in diamonds.  I bet you can’t guess what happens. No, it’s not a diamond hoist, although I’m sure my dragon possessed hero would be up for that if necessary.

A former super soldier turned dragon demon must choose between his soul mate and saving the world from a nuclear winter. 

The British army’s nuclear testing bonded a dragon into Flynn Hemsworth’s soul. Military scientists vivisected and tortured him until he escaped two years later. Although he’s never aged, he’s been alone and on the run for almost six decades. When he prevents a naked woman from being the prize lot in a coven’s slave auction, he realizes she has an unexplored submissive streak.
Hope Mathews—a sassy blonde with killer keyboard skills—is a strong independent woman. When Flynn prevents her being sold to a demon, she discovers she enjoys spankings and light bondage. 
Together Hope and Flynn must shut down a coven of black magicians, rescue kidnapped demons, and stop a black ops nuclear missile hitting the UK. Even if they manage all that, Hope’s the granddaughter of a billionaire while Flynn’s still on the run from the military who want to dissect him again. Can they find common ground and build a life together? 

Reader Advisory: Contains explicit language, a virginal heroine who discovers she enjoys spanking and bondage. Add in some serious dragon demon loving, light the blue touch paper, stand back, and watch the sparks fly.
