Both druids lifted their hands upward and raised their joined voices as one. “Let the lights from the stars cast their glow down upon the longest night which greets us once again. The land slumbers, and the battle between the Oak King and aging Holly King begins anew. Though the skies are cold and dreary, we rejoice in song and feasting as this night encloses us in her embrace. For we fear naught, since the moon and stars will light our path. Blessings of Mother Danu to all!”
Cathal scooped out a mixture of herbs from the leather pouch, belted at his side, and then tossed them into the flames. Sparks danced upward, and cries of approval echoed throughout the hall. Cheers resounded and many lifted their cups in salute to the blaze and each other.
Angus brought over two cups for the druids. “I thank ye both. Come and join us in feasting this night.”
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?
