“Praise Mother Danu.” The lass moved away from Desmond, and knelt on one knee in front of Alastair. “Please forgive me. We did not ken whom we could trust. My name is Ailsa MacDuff. We require your assistance.”
Alastair released his hold on the druid. “Please dinnae pay homage to me.” He reached down and helped her to stand.
“Ye are honored on our island,” stated Ailsa. She waved her hand toward the druid. “This is Tam.”
The druid nodded. “How blessed we are to have a Dragon Knight and his guard come to our aid.” He looked at Ailsa. “This Dragon Knight has the power of the land.”
Desmond snorted in disgust. “I am not his guard.”
Alastair’s mouth twitched in humor. “I am married to his sister.”
A Highland Moon Enchantment
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?
