Blog Tour: Dragon's Hoard by M.A. Church

M.A. Church is here today to talk a little bit about her new Dreamspun Beyond release, Dragon's Hoard. See our 4 ❤ review of it HERE.

Hey everyone! I’m M. A. Church, and I’m here to share my latest release, Dragon’s Hoard. The novel is part of the Dreamspun Beyond line at Dreamspinner Press. So, of all the paranormal being, why did I pick a dragon?

For one reason, they’re intriguing. References to these mythological creatures are found in almost every culture dating back to ancient times. While actual proof dragons exist has never been found, the mythology for them is universal, widespread, and seems to be everlasting.

That leads to another point of interest concerning dragons—their diversity. Some are depicted as having a snake-like body. Others are lizard-like. Some have wings, some are without. Some breathe fire and some spit ice. And don’t even get me started on their colors: red, blue, black, white, gold… and so on. Some cultures look at dragons as destructive and evil, while others view dragons as a symbol of power, strength, and good luck.

And finally, I just like them! Warwick is everything I find fascinating in a dragon: huge, can fly, and deep down, just wants the love of his mate. What’s not to like, lol?


To be loved by a dragon is to be treasured.

A hundred years ago, werewolf Alpha Montgomery took a risk driven by desperation—he borrowed money from the ancient dragon Warwick Ehecatl, putting up the pack lands as collateral. Now the debt is due, and dragons don’t forget—or forgive. Warwick demands Montgomery’s son, Avery, and three businesses as compensation. As an Omega, Avery knows he is basically useless to his pack, so he might as well agree. He soon has second thoughts, though. Warwick is fearsome, and he’s free to do as he likes with Avery.

Warwick knows his race’s reputation, and he even admits some of it is deserved. But he’d rather cut off his tail than let his innocent mate’s light go out. It won’t be easy, but buried deep, there’s something between them worth safeguarding.


Startled, Avery glanced at the sky, a sky that was once again cloudless. “Ho-ly shit, Warwick.”
Warwick huffed. Avery was going to take that sound as one of amusement. With his feet still stuck to the ground, he stared intently into Warwick’s eyes, searching. There. There was that human intelligence he was looking for. Avery wasn’t about to ask if Warwick could understand him. Nothing irritated a shifter more, but now he understood the need humans had to ask.
“Wow, you are… you are….”
Horribly gorgeous. Beastly. Imposing. Intimidating. Threatening too, although Avery didn’t feel in peril. Maybe he was as empty-headed as rumors said Omegas were, because the creature in front of him could probably snap him in half with those powerful jaws. Which was not the most comforting thought, and he instinctively took a step back, but a low, rumbling purr rose from the dragon’s chest. Calmness flooded his system, a sense of well-being that quickly chased away the sudden spurt of anxiety. His nerves settled, and the wonderment of what was standing in front of him began to rise again.
“You are magnificent, awe-inspiring, and scary as hell.” Avery rested his hand on his chest as his breathing slowed.
The dragon—no, he needed remember to call him Warwick, not “the dragon”—rolled his eyes. He could almost hear Warwick saying of course he was scary as hell. He was a dragon, after all. Just like that, any residual unease fled. That was so typically Warwick. For the first time since Warwick shifted, Avery laughed.
