Are you enjoying the new style Medieval Monday? I’m loving sharing the posts and following them around. This week’s excerpt comes from Dragon Knight’s Shield by Mary Morgan
Angus MacKay, leader of the Dragon Knights, failed his brothers and his clan upon the death of his sister. Now he must fight the darkness of despair tempting his soul. Back on Scottish soil, he comes face to face with Deirdre who can wield a sword as mightily as his warriors, and takes her captive. Yet, with each passing day, the fire dragon inside him roars to claim the one woman fate has destined for him.
Famed mystery writer, Deirdre Flanagan, is unprepared for the next chapter in her life. On a vacation to Scotland, she steps through the mists and enters into a skirmish alongside a Highlander. However, the fight has only begun, and now she must battle Angus as well as evil in order to claim the love of this Dragon Knight.
Will their love be powerful enough to shield them from danger, or burn them to ashes?
“Raise the portcullis!” Angus’s order did not allow for any argument.
Releasing his brother, he walked to the entrance. Hearing the grate of steel being lifted, Angus let the fire dance along his fingers. Fear clawed at man and dragon as he waited for the monster to show himself.
In moments, Angus, horrified, watched Lachlan walk through the portcullis, clutching Deirdre’s bloodied arm while holding a blade to her back. She stumbled forward, and he pulled her back by her braid. His heart slammed inside his chest and it took all of Angus’s strength not to bring out the fire dragon. Blind rage filled him as the man’s laughter echoed all around him.
