Dragon in Distress [MultiFormat]
eBook by Mercedes Lackey & Elisabeth Waters

eBook Category: Fantasy
eBook Description: No matter how many princes woo you, you need some standards: "If I were ever to marry, which I don't plan on," Rowena said firmly, "I'm sure I would want a husband who had some sense of self-preservation. Camping out on a ledge just outside a dragon's lair does not betoken any great degree of intelligence."

"Dragons," Tarma muttered, staring at their hostess in disbelief over a nice hot cup of tea. "Tea-drinking dragons. I must be out of my mind."

The dragon ignored her, as she had ignored Tarma every other time she had muttered something similar. It--she--was a very polite dragon, although a deeply distressed dragon.

She had every right to be distressed, though how that distress and the spell she had cast to bring her some help had interacted to open a portal between her world--which was obviously not the one that held Shin'a'in, since there were no such things as dragons in Tarma's world--and their world was a mystery White Winds Adepts would probably be debating for the next century or more. That didn't matter. What did was what she and Kethry were going to do about the situation that brought them here, since obviously the magic that had done so would not release them until they had.

"I'm dreadfully sorry now that I built the spell that way," the dragon was saying, apologetically, "But I thought I would probably be dragging in some reluctant knight or other, and well--historically my kind and theirs do not exactly get along. I built in coercions, and now I can't get rid of them."

Kethry nodded wisely, as Tarma sighed. "At least the track isn't even cold by Warrl's standards," Tarma put in. "I have to admit that you couldn't have deliberately selected anyone more fit to get Rowena back to you in a reasonable amount of time if you'd tried."
