Celebrating The Latest Release In Tianna Xander & Viola Grace's D.A.R.E. Project Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of EMERALD DARE  , the second book in Tianna Xander's  D.A.R.E. Project Series co-authored with Viola Grace!

Tianna is the author of several paranormal, time-travel and science fiction romance novels. She loves reading everything from romance novels, murder mysteries and encyclopedias, to handbooks on solar energy. Tianna is the first to admit she spends far too much time surfing the internet and chatting with her online friends and critique groups.

Having written several novels and working on at least one more at any given time -- Tianna still finds time for her family, friends and her many pets. She currently lives in Michigan with her husband, two children, three cats, two big dogs and one occasionally terrorized Netherland Dwarf bunny. Her life is anything but boring.


EMERALD DARE by Tianna Xander and Viola Grace

D.A.R.E. Project Book Three

Raised for one purpose Emerald is pulled between two facts. One, she doesn't want to live in a lab forever, and two, her sisters are disappearing into the dimensions they have worked in. When she meets two males of her kind she has to make a choice and doesn't even hesitate. She picks the one who doesn't make her skin crawl.

Aegon is a silver dragon with the patience and creative intelligence of his kind. He is delighted that his random sweep yielded one of the dragonettes that he has heard so much about and he will do whatever she needs him to to keep her happy and with him at all times. He has to release her to win her, a conflict he has to wrestle with while she returns to the lab. A life together glows before him, but when will she call him so they can begin it?

  3. Dragon shifters, how fun! How difficult is it for the two of you to write together? Does one person do certain scenes, like action scenes or love scenes, or do you both just write everything?

  7. Sounds great, interesting concept. I've never read a dragon shifter book before.

    How spicy is the romance?

  8. First off, let me apologize for missing my own party. I’ve had a few things going on around the house and couldn’t be here like I wanted to be.

    Shadow_kohler — As far as where our ideas come from… that’s a good question. I’m not sure about Viola, but things just come to me as I’m writing sometimes. I’m kind of a seat of the pants kind of writer and tend to do my best when under pressure, as long as it’s not too much pressure. LOL

    Katie — It’s not difficult to write with Viola at all. We switch off, usually at the end of a chapter or when we reach a certain word count. Viola isn’t the first author I’ve worked with and the process seems to be the same.

  9. Sherry — Thank you so much! Believe it or not, we’re shooting for twenty. There are twenty sisters, so this will go on for a while. :-)

    Tammy Ramey — Thank you! I love writing this series with Viola. It’s fun and exciting, even for me. I never know what she’s going to come up with next.

    Bookwyrm — Thanks to you, too! As far as what I’m working on now… I’m working on book 4 of the Chosen series, book 2 of the Hidden Breeds series, book 2 of the Dragon Bound series a new sci-fi that is yet untitled and a few others including the next DARE story.

  10. Jerry B — Thank you so much! I love dragon shifters. I don’t know why I like them. It just seems that they would be old and experienced. ::waggling brows::

    The romance in the DARE series isn’t very spicy at all. The DARE Project stories are geared for people who don’t like explicit sex scenes in their books. It’s considered mainstream romance. Some even consider it young adult. If you’re interested in spicy stories, you might want to check out my books at

    Though, as always, my books are stories first. If you take the sex out, you will still have a well-rounded story. For example, with the exception of a few shorts, my titles at would be complete without the sex. All of my books are well-rounded stories first. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  11. Thank you so much to everyone who came and commented. I apologize that I was unable to attend this time. Please forgive me. if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me at tiannaxander at or through my website.

    Have a wonderful summer!
