Welcome back to another Medieval Monday. Today I’m delighted to welcome Mary Morgan with an excerpt from A Highland Moon Enchantment.
Taking the offered mug, Tam went and took a seat beside Bran. Lifting it toward Ailsa, he said, “Blessing to ye, lady.”
Smiling, she bowed her head slightly to the druid. Taking a sip of her own mead, she savored the honeyed sweetness.
Cathal took a place next to Angus. “’Tis good to see ye once again, Desmond. Ye did not return with your brothers after Samhain?”
“’Tis good to see ye, as well.” His mouth twitched in humor. “My sister considered it wise I should stay on until after Midwinter.”
The druid cast a quick glance at Fiona. “A wise woman indeed.” He turned toward Ailsa. “I am happy to meet ye, lady. I have heard your journey has been fraught with troubles. Thank the Gods ye came across the Dragon Knight and Desmond.”
You first meet this warrior in Dragon Knight’s Axe, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3
Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.
Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.
When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?
