Happy anniversary, Bastien and Corentin! The Dragon's Devotion has been out in the world one year today. Can you believe it? I loved writing about these two, the earl carrying the world on his shoulders and the scholar with a secret he has to protect above all else. Watching them become more enmeshed with each other as Bastien gets in over his head with an old mystery that brings a very real danger, and leads us to the question of whether Corentin can reveal his secrets to save the man he loves. And a dragon, of course. A purple dragon. (Personally, I think purple is one of the best colors for dragons.)
If you haven't read The Dragon's Devotion, here's some more info:
Lord Bastien, Earl of Ardesia, inherited his title unexpectedly when his parents were killed in a sailing accident along with the parents of his cousin, Prince Philip. Since then, Bastien has devoted his life to the obligations of his family and estate—so much so, that it has caused tension between him and his siblings. His world is further shaken when he receives an anonymous letter informing him that the tragic boating accident may, in fact, have been murder. Bastien throws himself into investigating whether the allegations are true and finding out who killed his parents.
As Corentin and Bastien become closer, the mystery of Bastien’s parents’ death draws him further into danger. Corentin feels compelled to protect Bastien, but the threat is closer than they know. Now, Corentin must decide whether preserving his secret—and potentially his people’s safety—is more important than saving the man he loves
