  • 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?

    Excerpt:

    Alastair’s fists were clenched by his sides. How did this mere wisp of a woman know his true name? Very few had heard of the Dragon Knights. What made her so special? She was nothing but a slave, possibly cast out by her own people. Or so he thought.

    He would get the truth out of her. She was now his. Bought and paid for.

    His anger simmered just below the surface, and he allowed his eyes to flash with the fire of the dragon. Hearing her gasp, he smiled. Good, little bird. Fear me. Without giving her time to react, he swept her up and dumped her over his left shoulder, and strode to the ship.

    He heard her sharp intake of breath, and then she started to pound against his back. “Put…me down,” she demanded.

    “Nae.”

    She started to kick, and he clenched his jaw in frustration. The little bird had talons. He responded with a smack to her bottom, but instead of removing his hand, he kept it against her soft curves. “I will put ye down when we are on my ship.”

    She went completely still, and then she screamed.

    Alastair dumped her onto the ground. “For the love of Brigid, did ye have to yell into my ear?”

    Fiona rubbed at her bottom and then stood. “You beast,” she spat out at him. Jumping onto a nearby boulder, she looked directly into his eyes. “Don’t you ever touch me like that again.”

    Alastair yanked her to his chest by her arms, his face mere inches from hers. “And what are ye going to do?” He watched as her eyes widened in alarm. Blue eyes that reminded him of the sky on warm summer days. Then his gaze traveled down to her lips, red as berries.

    Instantly, his beast roared to life. Claim one kiss, Alastair.

    “I will slit your throat,” she whispered.

I was hooked on this series with book one... and then two! Now this third book in the "Order of the Dragon Knights" series was so good that I want book four to be out so I can meet the last brother, Angus and read about his story. Dragon Knight's Axe was a perfect summertime read. I found I couldn't put it down. Loved the quotes at the beginning of each Chapter. Alastair and Fiona's story was written so well that I believed they were real characters from history. You can feel Alastair's painful emotional turmoil and regret caused by the death of his sister (no spoiler - this was in the first book), as well as Fiona struggling with her past, present and future. A wonderful mix of romance, fantasy, time travel and with a bit of Celtic history. Mary has an amazing imagination for storytelling and an originality that I haven't seen in other similar genres. Fun and great read!!

      Meet Alastair. From the moment you meet this scarred warrior defying the sea god, you know you've met the original bad boy. I imagine if he had been born in this century he'd be in a kilt and motorcycle leather. I have to admit I was taken by Alastair, but he met his match with Fiona. As she jumps on a boulder to stand up to him, I could only cheer this pixie's spunk. She sticks with Alastair even as I despaired that he might never be redeemed. By the time Alastair meets up with the dragon, I wonder if this isn't one character even the bard Mary Morgan can't find a way to redeem. At every turn in this delightful tale you will be pulled into highs and lows, sometimes railing at Alastair while cheering on Fiona. Mary Morgan is a true story weaver. Her characters are ones we care about deeply. This is a fun read and a wonderful addition to the tales of the Dragon Knights.
