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 he 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?

He arched a brow and his smile became seductive. “Do I frighten ye?” 

“No!” she lied. Like hell you do! You’re as gorgeous as sin standing there, and I want to rip your clothes from your body.

Pushing off from the wall, he stepped into the room and silently closed the door behind him, his eyes never leaving hers. His hair hung in soft waves past his shoulders, and her fingers itched to twine within them. Her body ached in places so deep—longing for even the slightest touch.  

“Are ye unwell, my lady?” 

The burr of his voice so low—so sexy, she could only stare at him until his words resonated in her mind. “No,” she replied softly, feeling the flames of desire heat not only her face, but also her entire body. 

This time when he took another step closer, Deirdre didn’t back away. Now he stood so close she could feel the warmth of his breath across her face—a mix of wine and pure male.

She watched mesmerized as he reached for a lock of her hair, twining it around his finger. “So verra soft.” 

Deirdre couldn’t breathe, as he let the curl unravel and cupped her face in his hands. “Ye confuse me. Ye torment me in my dreams,” he whispered against her cheek, sending a wave of pleasure down her spine.

Without thought, she groaned and leaned into him—his beard grazing her cheek. She no longer battled her mind for the man. “Kiss me, Angus.”

 
 

 
‘It will take a love more powerful than he can imagine to return his soul to the Knight he was destined to become.  Nonetheless, once he claims the ultimate prize, the question remains, will his love consume them both, or will he walk away, leaving only ashes of what could have been their destiny.’

I absolutely love the cover of this book.  Angus MacKay just may be my new book boyfriend.  The shield is stunning, and in his hands it is magical.  (sigh)

Dragon Knight’s Shield is the 4th book in the ‘Order of the Dragon Knight’s‘ series.  This is Angus MacKay’s story.  Angus is the eldest Dragon Knight brother, and he blames himself for his sisters death.  He feels he did not teach them control, which lead to their sisters death.  Therefore he doesn’t feel he deserves happiness or peace, so he hides refusing to ever go home.

This series keeps getting better, and better.  Mary Morgan has done it again, but better this time.  If that is possible.  

Deirdre Flanagan can wield a sword and fight as good as any man.  She can protect herself, and is no wilting wallflower.  I loved Deidra for those qualities.  Deirdre is also a writer, and desperately needs some down time.  She gets the opportunity when her friends give her a vacation to Scotland for her birthday.  It is here where the story gets interesting.  While taking a walk in Scotland a mist suddenly appears, and Deirdre losing her sense of direction, walks right into Medieval Scotland and Angus MacKay.

With this little mishap Deirdre will set off on a journey that will either unite the Dragon Knights or break her heart.  If you enjoy historical romance, time travel, dragons, and magic this book will not disappoint you.  I was not bored for one second while reading this book.  The characters are strong, and the plot is packed with action.  There is a nice surprise thrown in here and there that will keep you wanting more!

I can’t wait to see what Mary Morgan has in store for the next book.

RWAB:  For those that may not be familiar with you or your books, could you please tell us a little bit about yourself, and how you came to write your first book?
MM:  I write Scottish Paranormal Time-travel Romance. The idea for the Dragon Knights started on my first trip to Scotland in 2000. I was sitting on a boulder in the Highlands (Newtonmore), surrounded by sheep, mists, and ghosts from the past. My mind started to weave the tale of this Order of Highlanders who were not your ordinary type of men.  

RWAB:  What do you like most about Angus MacKay, and least?  
MM: I love his sense of duty—his honor. Yet, I was frustrated at his fixation on controlling. He’s always trying to maintain control of everything and everyone. 

RWAB:  If Deirdre Flanagan (Dragon Knight’s Shield) could give us any advice on men, what would she say?
MM: Find a man that will stand beside you—not in back and not in front. A partner in love and life. 

RWAB:  What kind of research before starting a book (if any), and if so what kind?
MM: Ooo…I love doing research! It’s fascinating! With each of my stories, I had to do some historical research. I have many books on Scotland and Ireland—from maps, clans, history, cookbooks, and magazines. I start with those first, and then I’m pulling up information on the web from Scottish historical sites. Sometimes, I can gather information within two to three days. Other times, a week. It all depends on the story.  

RWAB:  Where do you write?  Do you have a daily schedule, or do you just write when the mood strikes?
MM: I write in this wonderful corner in my bedroom. There is a huge window overlooking my garden and it’s peaceful. Yes, I have a daily schedule. I write six days a week and on Sundays, I edit what I’ve written. The mood to write is always there.  

RWAB:  Do you have any plans to write another book in the Dragon Knight’s Series, or is this the last book?  
MM: I’m finishing the last book in the series. It will wrap up everything nicely, and I believe my readers will be in for surprise when they find out the hero and heroine. 

RWAB:  When you are not writing, what kind of books do you like to read?  
MM: I love Science fiction fantasy, historical novels, and non-fiction history. It all depends on my mood, but I’ve been known to read several at the same time.

RWAB:  Is there a question you have you always wanted to be asked in an interview?  If so, what is the question, and what is the answer?
MM: There really haven’t been any questions that I’ve wanted someone to ask me. J

Just for Fun

RWAB:  If time travel were possible, and you could travel back in time, where would you go, what time period?  Why?
MM: Wow! So many centuries and places. However, the first century I would want to visit would be 7th century Scotland—Urquhart Castle. I have always wanted to see the foundations of this place. How did it start? From there, I would time-travel to 11th century Ireland to speak with Brian Boru, the last King of Ireland. He was one of the greatest kings of Ireland and led the Irish to the peak of their Golden Age—art, poetry, saints and scholars.
