is our theme for this round of Medieval Monday!
Join us, our heroes and heroines and as we see that crucial first encounter with a couple meant to be together.
This week’s excerpt is from
Dragon Knight’s Axe
Reality, dream, or nightmare…
“O’Quinlan?” MacKay growled.
Fiona refused to show fear to her new captor. Until this horrid nightmare ceased and she woke, she would pretend it wasn’t real.
“Isn’t that what I said?”
Green eyes glared back at her. “So your brother sold ye. Why?”
She frowned in confusion. “I don’t have a brother.”
“Are ye not kin to the O’Quinlan of Navan?”
She swallowed. Memories of working on the dig in Navan came rushing back. Rory told her to take a walk, which led her wandering into an ancient grove of oaks.
What did he tell her? Was it to rest? Her head throbbed trying to recall his words.

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?
