The Sea King’s Lady:
A Seven Kingdoms Tale, Book 2
“I captured her, so that makes her ours….”
Jenny Ackerly is devastated when her best friend disappears without a trace. She vows to continue looking for Carly until she can bring her friend home once and for all. During her latest search, her determination turns to horror when she finds a young boy alone on the beach. When the boy enters the water, Jenny’s protective instincts ignite and she rushes to save the child from certain death. Caught in a powerful undertow, Jenny resurfaces in a magical, underwater world.
Orion is the powerful ruler of the Isle of the Sea Serpent and protector of the ocean, but time is running out for him. The Eyes of the Sea Serpent that give him power over the oceans has been stolen. If the loss of the magical stones was not enough of a burden, his oldest son’s bargain with the Sea Witch threatens to seal the devastating fate of the Merpeople – and possibly that of the Seven Kingdoms. He has all but given up hope until a fiery female from another world appears.
Can an unlikely alliance between Jenny and Orion save not only the life of a young boy but an entire Kingdom as well? It will take their combined wits and strengths to survive the evil lurking in the depths of the ocean.

Once upon a time in the not so distant future… or past… well, one of those… there lived a mighty mob of emus….
Yes, I can hear your brain screeching to a stop as you reread the introduction. The answer to your question is yes, large groups of emus are called mobs. Of course, that brings up all kinds of wonderful images in your head: The Boss emu ordering the unlikely demise of a poacher intent on capturing them, an army ready to do battle against the huge mob of emus (BTW, this really happened in 1932 in Australia – the winner: the emus!), or the emus coming to the rescue. Oh, just think of all the lovely stories that can be written for the mysterious and mighty bird that hatch from the eggs a little Dragonling carried home.
It is funny how some things just come to you. They often say right about something you know. Well, I’m no expert on emus, but it helps that we pass by a friend’s house that raises them. The stories Tom has told us about his attempts to raise emus for meat which quickly turned to them all having names and being pets has amused me for years. When I wrote The Dragonlings’ Very Special Valentine and The Great Easter Bunny Hunt, I knew I had to write Pearl’s story – and include the very unusual eggs that were brought back from Earth.
In Pearl’s Dragon, we get to meet the unlikely heroes who are as protective of their dragon friends as the dragons are of them. A clutch of eggs from Earth, a misunderstanding, love between an old dragon and his true mate, a couple of mischievous younglings, poachers, and a lesson in how to be the perfect mate come together in Pearl’s Dragon: Dragon Lords of Valdier.
