Thanks to everyone for stopping by to keep Cheryl company at the Tiki Hut!
A lover of unusual things, Cheryl Dragon enjoys writing unique stories with sinfully hot erotic romance or suspenseful mainstream paranormals. Never at a loss for ideas, there are plenty of stories in her brain waiting to be written. Her two favorites book settings are Las Vegas and New Orleans...where anything can happen!

Cheryl lives in the Chicagoland area with her deaf albino cat. By day she crunches & analyzes numbers as an Assistant Controller for a division of a large international conglomerate which leaves the creative juices free for her erotic romance and paranormal suspense novels.

Welcome to the Tiki Hut, Cheryl!


Escape for Summer….One way or another!

Some days I wish I had become a teacher. Some profession where I get the summers off. But no such luck here. Day job, writing, and life continue year round.

We all need to escape reality for a little while. Some of us can go on vacation. I went on a mini-working vacation in early June to the Lori Foster Weekend. Not a big vacation but affordable and fun. I got to see my writer friends and my slave labor promoters (like DeNita!).

Another way I personally escape is TV. I love my shows…like The Closer, Leverage, The Office, Family Guy, and more. I blog about the new stuff or a great rerun weely at my new blog: http://cheryldragon.blogspot.com/ You’ll also find info on my releases as they come out so there is a little promo there as well.

My other way of escaping is writing and I’ve got a lot of stuff coming out this summer. Ménage, m/m, paranormal, and all of it really really HOT!

Cheryl Dragon Summer Releases for your Escape Pleasure!!

Genre: Ménage

Cassie has found the man of her dreams. Neil’s rich and smart and hotter than hell! He's perfect. Except for one small thing. Their sex life is cooling off and he’s not talking. It's not her, she's almost sure, and she's not giving up. She's determined to get to the bottom of it. And fix it.

What Cassie doesn't know is that Neil used to have a boyfriend. Lou. They used to pick up women together, have sex with them, enjoy them, but they never found one they wanted to keep. Then Lou moved on. Neil tried. He tried to go straight for Cassie and for his career, but he never stopped loving Lou and without that man in his bed, he's never going to have everything he needs, no matter how much he loves Cassie.

Once Cassie starts digging around, the truth can't be denied. And neither can the chemistry between Cassie and Lou. Is she the one they needed all along? Cassie's never had two men before. Not even just in bed. The idea of a ménage life scares her a little, honestly. But now that she knows how to please her boyfriend, she's not letting him go. Even if it means learning to love her boyfriend's boyfriend.

  1. Good morning and welcome to the Tiki Hut, Cheryl!!!

    My hubby is a teacher and I actually went to college to become a teacher, but the job I had while I was working my way through college started really taking off and I was making more money at that job than I would have if I would have become a teacher and the money won out.

    Looking back, I am a little regretful because the older you get, the more you realize money isn't even close to everything...it's so much more important to do something that you love!

    That being said, I taught a Sunday school class about the same time my career path changed when I said to myself...what the heck was I thinking??? LOL --- God bless those cut out for teaching, because not all of us are!!!

    Your books really do add more sizzle to our summers - thank you!!! And Happy Release Day!!!

    Glad you're celebrating with us today!

  2. Hi Cheryl,
    Love your books! How is it different writing m/m romances compared to the other genres that you write in?

  3. Nice to meet you Cheryl,

    Your books all seem wonderful, how many do you have out now? You seem like a very busy author, how much time to you spend writing each day?

  4. Happy release Day! I LOVE books with a plus-sized heroine!

  5. Happy release day. Wow!! Nice covers and hot stories...I'm off to check out your excerpts, but wanted to wish you the best first, in case I don't get back.

  6. Happy Release Day Cheryl! Being a comtroller I don't know when you have time to write. I am an accountant and I don't know when I would have time to write if I had the ability. Have a great day!

  7. Congrats!!! Nice covers. can't wait to read!!!

  8. I enjoy books with a plus size heroine.
    Happy Release Day!

  9. Booklover 1335

    Thanks for stopping by! M/M is only different in the issues a gay couple faces. The love and trust issues are the same in any relationship...but facing the outside world can be hard. But two hot guys is always fun to write about:)

  10. Jerry B

    Oh no, I have no idea. wait i'll count...23 romances and two psychic suspense stories. now some are short stories, most are novella lengths so it just seems like a lot.

    I write tight so the stories are hot and tightly focused.

    Some days I don't get to write and some days I'll draft two chapters. I do a lot staying home on weekends and getting big chunks done then. But it's a passion. I love writing the stories:)

  11. Marcy,

    Thanks! Out of Body Sex is my first plus size heroine but I know what it's like. I'm sure I'll write another one when the right story pops into my head.

  12. Kimmy,

    Thanks, you might get lost...as Jerry made me count, I have a few books out there!

  13. jrobe10689

    The one good thing about accounting is it really requires no creativity. the numbers add up or they don't.

    I find the time because I love writing. And I tend to write shorter things so I feel accomplished:) A little trick that works well for me!

  14. Jo Ann,

    Thanks, I love my covers! I've been very very lucky:)

  15. Estella,

    Thanks! Hopefully you'll like Out of Body Sex!

  16. Hi Cheryl. Raising my hand, former accountant here! Whenever us number crunchers would be labeled as boring, I'd kinda smile. Reminds me of the saying "Watch Out for the quiet ones"! Love your books!

  17. Mari,

    That's so true - someone told me I looked like Mary Poppins until I opened my mouth!! HA - and my house is this very natural green tinted tan, but the second you open the door it's a fiesta - not a white wall in the house! My girlfriend said the house was like me - you just have no idea what's going on inside the old noodle.

  18. Hi, Cheryl! Popping in late to say wow! You've got a busy summer, which is terrific for us! I'm currently reading one of your older titles, and definitely enjoying it! Reading's a terrific avenue for escape for me, and I hope to have plenty of time to do that this summer :)

  19. I really like when people are expressing their opinion and thought. So I like the way you are writing
