Happy Friday! Today I am totally excited to bring to you the next book in Mary Morgan’s Order of the Dragon Knights series. Dragon Knights Axe introduces us to Alastair and his quest for redemption. As always this is a great fantasy romance with lots of action, romance and a hot Highlander. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. I hope you have a great weekend and pick up a great book.
Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and fears.
Research assistant, Fiona O’Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time. She soon discovers a Dragon Knight’s relic has been entrusted into her care. Determined to return the artifact to the Great Glen, Fiona is unprepared for the danger ahead—losing her heart and soul to Alastair “Beast” MacKay.
Will their love be strong enough to soothe the beast and heal the man? Or will Death swing its axe, leaving them lost for all eternity?
Alastair McKay doesn’t want redemption for his sister’s death. This is why he has taken to the sea. His power lies with the land and he will avoid that at all cost. That is until he sees the beautiful Fiona being sold by some slave traders. Together they must take his Axe to the Great Dragon and help Alastair find his redemption. Unfortunately, Alastair doesn’t want to find his redemption. But, something inside him is still drawn to her. He resists her and when he makes a vow to her newly discovered brother that he won’t touch her or do anything that would disgrace her. The problem is that Fiona is equally drawn to him and makes things very difficult. But, once they can’t hold back any longer they find a happiness together they didn’t think was possible. It isn’t until something threatens to tear them apart that forces Alastair to make decisions he thought he’d never have to make. Can they find the love and redemption that is there or will Alastair choose to lose all that he has out of stubbornness and misplaced guilt?
As always, Mary Morgan brings us another fantastic story about her Dragon Knights. I loved this new addition and continue to enjoy the romance between the two main characters. She truly can write a highland romance like nobody else. The characters are brought to life and the history is so tangible it makes the reader feel like they are there. Not to mention all of her highlanders are hotter than hot. Who wouldn’t want to go in the past to meet theses knights. Overall, this is another novel by Mary Morgan that I couldn’t put down until the very last page was turned. Even then I still wanted more. I truly can’t wait for her next in this series.
