Taja’s Dragon by Lisa Daniels

Taja once lived as a toy to rich and powerful men and boys who sought her arms. Then through stable master Braylon, she found that even she could have a better life. However, in his absence, the acting master and a stable boy, Semaj, remind her of what life was like. Her drunken mother is no help as she blames Taja for escaping luxury to do honest work. As Taja tries to stay on her chosen path, a handsome foreigner is the only support she finds. The first time she ran away, fearing what he would want in return. The second time, he walked away from her.
But he can’t always be there, and when Semaj finally acts on his desires, Taja must fight. When the guard gets involved, it becomes clear that the city will never allow her to start over, not without a protector.

AUTHOR is a (young) retired school teacher who resides in Miami. After five years of teaching, AUTHOR found that it wasn’t quite the world that she wanted to inhabit. After leaving her position, she moved to Miami. She hasn’t regretted it.
In her worlds, AUTHOR creates characters that go beyond the usual narrative. While they definitively include romance, AUTHOR strives to make the worlds more real with characters that are more than just cardboard cutouts of the genre. All of the main characters (and many of the secondary ones) have a rich history that span much longer than the stories themselves. This makes it easy to weave the stories together so that you can see characters you met in previous tales and see how they have managed since. Telera is a world teaming with romance, action, and stories – it is a world that AUTHOR loves to explore with her readers, one character at a time.
