She lives in the Pacific Northwest with a fluffy orange cat and a lively roommate. When she's not writing, Zoe likes to travel, read and play video games.
Okay, Zoe…let’s get started…
Please tell us how the idea came to you for Dragon & Flame. Please include all the fun details.
Well, Jin Yue, one of the heroes, originally showed up in Tiger’s Den (the previous Haven City Series book). Several fans wanted Jin to get his own book, and I agreed! I wanted to know what Jin would do with a love interest. How would he react to someone who stood up to him? What if someone didn’t fear him? That’s where Rory came in – just badass enough to challenge a powerful dragon shifter.
What’s Rory Sullivan’s job? What does he do for a living?
Rory is a bartender at the bar he owns with his twin sister, Ruby. He looks the part, complete with tattoos and piercings.
Give us some insight into Jin Yue. What’s a bit of his back story?
Jin’s the most powerful crime boss in Haven City – he runs every shifter gang and a number of illegal casinos, but he’s got a good heart despite his criminal enterprises. Jin was raised in the Japanese yakuza, but he lost his chance to take over to a more powerful member. That spurred him to seek power over everything else – until he meets Rory, that is.
Who is Rory to Jin? Can you give us a bit about the first time they meet each other?
Rory and Jin officially meet at one of Jin’s parties. Rory’s the bartender and Jin chats him up and gets him to pretend to be Jin’s date to make Rory’s ex-boyfriend (who is a guest at the party) jealous. Their relationship grows from there.
Can you tell us about the abilities of Jin? How do they help OR hinder?
Jin is a dragon shifter. His power helps him because he has super strength and can win a physical fight with just about anyone. However, he can’t shift in public because it’d freak normal humans out.
Is Dragon & Flame included in a series? If so, what series and can you give us titles and a tagline for other books in this series?
Yes! It’s the sixth book in the Haven City series.
Shadow Scars: Rogue Wolf (Haven City Series # 1)
Alpha’s Shadow: Rogue Wolf (Haven City Series # 2)
Thief: Black Wolves (Haven City Series # 3)
Alpha’s War: Black Wolves (Haven City Series # 4)

Rory Sullivan thinks he has it all, until his boyfriend breaks his heart and the new landlord raises the rent on his bar. A chance meeting with Jin Yue, a rich dragon, gives Rory hope. Jin promises Rory he can save the bar and get even with his ex – for a price.
All Rory has to do is pretend to be in a relationship with Jin. Rory’s bad boy nature, and the desire for some no-strings-attached sex make the idea way too intriguing. Even if Rory’s brain thinks it’s a bad idea, his cock heartily disagrees.
Problem is, Jin Yue might be all kinds of hot, but he’s also Haven City’s one and only crime boss – sexy, powerful and deadly. Now Rory is tied to Jin until the dragon’s mission is complete, regardless of assassination attempts, hunters or the cops.
Jin Yue won the gang war, but the battle for Haven City isn’t over.
Enter Rory Sullivan – the tatted up fire mage who can help Jin lay claim to his rightful territory. However, things don’t turn out the way Jin plans. Rory pushes all the right buttons and riles up Jin’s dragon instincts. The fire mage is the farthest thing from Jin’s type, but the heat between them sets Jin’s blood on fire.
They’re playing a dangerous game that puts both of their hearts and lives on the line. While the passion between Jin and Rory sizzles, can a relationship built on deceit grow into something more?
