Welcome to Medieval Mondays! Our theme for this year’s first round is the hero and heroine’s first meet.
This week I’m hosting my another great friend Mary Morgan and her medieval romance
A Highland Moon Enchantment
(A Tale from the Order of the Dragon Knights)
Desmond cast a sideways glance at Alastair and understood what would happen next. The MacKay would deal with the druid, and he would take care of the woman. The Dragon Knight gave a curt nod and tossed the axe down upon the ground. The force of his power shook the area, giving Desmond the advantage he required. Dropping to the ground, he kicked the woman’s legs out from under her. She toppled backward, landing on her side away from him.
Stunned, indeed, but she still maintained control of her dirk. Desmond reached for his sword and leveled it to the back of her head. “Ye are a foolish woman,” he spat out. “Drop your blade and stand.”
Her hand unclenched the weapon, and she turned slowly around. “Ye might as well put a blade through my heart, for I have no wish to be your captive.”

You first met 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?
