Dragons of Zalara


Damon is in love with the queen of the dragon warriors and the only way to get close to her is to be her personal guard. But the Fates are against him. Instead of wooing the queen, he’s forced to go to Earth to steal his destined human mate.

Three months ago, Hera Athans woke up in a park with no memory of who she is, where she lives, or what she does for a living. Now, she’s in survival mode. Two months behind on her rent she’s one step away from being homeless—again. She didn’t think things could get any worse. But she was wrong.

Kidnapped by an alien and held captive on board the spaceship Orion only Hera has the power to soothe his savage beast. She must mate with a dragon shifter to save both their worlds and unleash a love that will shake the stars…or lose both Earth and Zalara forever.

Dragons of Zalara


Ysam, a dragon shifter, must kidnap his mate and bring her back to Zalara if he ever wants to join the crew of the Orion. But he’s got a big secret.

Kathy Strong, a psychic and a defense attorney, swore off all aliens and is furious when she wakes up in a space craft. All she wants to do is return to Earth and have a normal life.

Caught in an asteroid storm with communications jammed, they are forced to land on a hostile planet. With flesh-eating aliens on the prowl, can Kathy and Ysam trust each other to survive?



A Recipe from M.L. Guida

Hello Everyone!

I’m excited to be here. Thanks, Karen, for allowing me to stop by.

I now have three books out in my Dragons of Zalara series. One of them is in the box set: 20 Shades of Shifters. To celebrate, I thought I’d share some of my family heritage.

Easter is around the corner and my family has a tradition of making Sausage Pie for Easter. I thought I would share the recipe with you.

It’s a secret Italian recipe!

5 Cups of flour

2 t Baking Powder

½ t Salt

Sift above ingredients. Make a well in center. In the well break six eggs, ¼ cup of cooking oil, and ½ cup of water. Mix together and stir flour in from sides. Stir until sticky, add more flour or water. If necessary, mix with hands. Sprinkle flour on the board and knead dough until smooth. Cover dough in bowl with plastic.

Slice thin 1-1 ½ inch Italian sausage. Fry and drain. Mix one dozen eggs, 2 lbs of grated pecorino cheese, ½ cup breads crumbs. Add sausage. Roll 2/3 of dough to fit pan. Fill, roll top, moisten edges with water to seal. Fit top, brush top with beaten egg yolk mixed with water. With fork, punch crosses in top.

Bake one hour @ 350 degrees.

I hope you enjoy this. I love sausage pie!
