Below you’ll find a snippet from Mary’s, A Highland Moon Enchantment.
It was a kiss for her tired soul, and she melted within his arms, surrendering to his touch. Soft bells echoed in the distance, and Desmond broke free.
“They are coming,” he whispered against her ear.
“Who?” she asked, not caring if the entire world saw them.
“The druids. They herald the start of Midwinter. Will ye sit with me at the feasting table, Ailsa?”
She reached up and nibbled on his bottom lip. “Aye, and the night as well.”
Letting out a groan, his mouth swooped down to capture hers again. The kiss left Ailsa with promises of more to follow. She intended on treasuring each moment with him.
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?
