Once, in the Kingdom of Incendium, there were twelve princesses of the realm, each a dragon shifter. Each fiery and passionate. Each possessed of an appetite for pleasure that only her destined mate can satisfy. Twelve men are expected in Incendium, each with special powers of his own, each with the gift to claim one dragon princess’s heart forever.

I know this answer is 4 years late. You most likely already found the book. But here is my answer anyway...
Just now I found a paperback version on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com. There are also plenty of online bookstores that sell physical books -- you can find them by googling "online book store" -- be aware of shipping costs. You may also want to try your local book stores and if they don't have it, ask if they will order it for you. Another option is a used book store near you. When I lived there I used to find them through phone business directories, internet searches and even newspaper ads. Some I found by happenstance. Good luck.(less)

Deborah Cooke creates these unique worlds, and this time she takes us to the far side of the galaxy where two planets orbit a dying sun. The first and where are story will focus is Incendium, where a dragon-shifter king resides with twelve daughters. Regalia is their neighboring planet, and its Queen has twelve sons. Long embroiled in conflict the monarchs decide to put aside their differences and join through the marriage of one of their offspring. However, prophecies indicate that the oldest D ...more

This novel was fun, funny, and endlessly hot. Cooke has taken an out of this world idea and woven it together with a rewarding relationship and some quite surprising twists to create a plot that kept me glued to the pages (or thinking about them when I had to get back to work). She left me a little broken inside at times, but the heartbreak was well worth the fantastic tale that I journeyed. Cooke’s world building was perfect. She allowed readers to picture the world and the events surrounding h ...more

Deborah Cooke’s first in her new Dragons of Incendium series is a masterful melding of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Paranormal romance. Her cast of characters are colorful in dragon or human form, her imaginative world is both familiar and foreign and her stars, the defiant yet compassionate heroine and school of hard knocks hero, rock the universe. Her dialogue is fast paced and fluent and she completes her tale brilliantly in an economy of pages. I can’t wait for the next dynamic dragon tale!

It was just okay for me. I listened and thought the narration was 5 stars, however the story kept me confused a lot of the time. The romance developed really fast and I wondered if the love was really just lust. At the end though, I felt better about that. It just seemed like things were told about, instead of shown at times and that kept the story very short-by design or that's the way the author planned it-not sure. It just needed more of everything-plot, character depth, romance, etc. ...more

This book was an interesting twist on a dragon shifter story. For once we are seeing the heroine of the story as the royal, dragon shifter and the hero is a human with "special" abilities.
While the story felt a little short, it did jump right into the action and move along at a good pace. I really enjoyed Troy's character and how he reacts to finding Drakina.

These two are not a traditional couple but it works. I really enjoyed the world that Deborah Cooke created in this book and I can't wait

I really enjoyed reading about dragons in space. When I learned Deborah Cooke was writing this new series, I knew I had to read it. And I wasn't disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed Wyvern's Mate, and Nero's Dream (included in the paperback version) made me anxious to read the next stories in this series. ...more

To earn his freedom from solitary confinement on the penal colony of Xanto, Troy must assassinate a princess of Incendium. He thinks the princess doesn’t stand a chance since he is a mindbender. Her father has agreed to free her from all other responsibilities if she completes one task – Princess Drakina must seduce her destined mate and conceive the crown prince of Incendium. She is sure it will be a quick seduction and then she can return home and live the life she wants to live. But when all ...more

Troy is a mindbender from Terra (Earth) who is captured by space pirates and is put into slavery. When he is caught committing the crimes he is forced to, he is sentenced to the mines at the prison planet. He is offered a chance to earn his freedom in the form of a gamble. If he kills Drakina, the wyvern princess from Incendium, he gets his freedom. The catch is he is made to look hideous to make it harder for him to attract her. Little does Troy know that he is being hunted by Drakina, who need ...more

I am a huge Deborah Cooke fan. Mostly a fan of her Dragon Shifter novels and now the Flatiron 5 Contemporary novels.

Since Wyvern's Mate is a SciFi/Fantasy read it sat for ages waiting to be read. After the RTC Convention I received a free copy of the audio version of the book. Because I work a night shift Audio Books have become my new best friends and Wyvern's Mate is at the top of my new friends list.

It is sleek and sexy. Out of this world and down to earth. And as always, full of humour.

Troy and Drakina are brought together by fate each having their own motives. But if fate is involved things don't go exactly by the book. I loved watching these characters develop and see that life is not always black and white. Great start to this series. Excited to read more by Deborah Cooke. ...more

Goes down as another off my 2016 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book about Sci-fi. Well this is more sci-fi with a paranormal mix but I’m counting it anyway. Great promise with these bold, sassy, intriguing characters. Good start to the series that looks to be an interesting collection of dragon mate stories. Something to remember is that beauty is only skin deep. It’s a persons’ inner character that makes them appealing.

Drakina’s planet is in trouble; it is being slowly pulled, along with their c

Audiobook Review: 5-star rating for its originality and conflicted characters!

Knowing both the narrator and author in a historical romance setting, it was a little hard to shift gears. Nevertheless, the story caught my attention and held lots of appeal.

Drakina, the first of the princesses of Incendium, is pretty much like any rebellious daughter when parents lay down the law. But Drakina is not a human, but a dragon shifter and comes from a planet more highly advanced than Terran, which we know

The first book in a brand new series by Deborah Cooke was fast paced and passi0nate. The plot line was strong and well developed.  I was never bored. I enjoyed watching the two characters come together and fall in love.  Their chemistry was strong and they were a good match.
Princess Drakina is sent to Earth to seduce Troy and get pregnant.  If she can do that, then her family would leave her alone and allow her to have her independence.  Troy is not attractive at all (because of a spell) and sh

"Wyvern's Mate" by Deborah Cooke. Book 1 in the Dragons of Incendium novella series.

A quick and fast story about a dragon princess, Drakina, and her destined human mate, Troy. This is a sci-fi novella romance series and is no way related to The Dragonfire series Ms. Cooke writes.

The basis of this novella series is that there are 12 dragon princesses of Incendium and each will be getting a mate throughout the series. The overall story arc is that the planet of Incendium and Regalia are getting to

Wyvern's Mate is a paranormal romance with lots of heart and insatiable appetites. It is the first in the Dragons of Incendium series by Deborah Cooke. The overall premise of the series is that there are 12 princesses in the Kingdom of Incendium, all of whom are dragon shifters and each princess possessing an unique ability to find her one soulmate through time and space.

Wyvern's Mate is Drakina's story, the oldest of the dragon-shifter-princesses from space. She wants nothing to do with the ki
