    Order of the Dragon Knights

    Duncan Mackay will do anything to lift the curse from his family — even forfeit his own life. But his plans change when he encounters the woman from his dreams, literally. She is from the future, somehow has his lost sword, and can talk to the Dragon that is able to lift his family’s curse.

    Brigid O'Neill has spent her life listening to the mythological legends from Ireland and Scotland. So, when an ancient sword lands at her doorstep and she starts dreaming of a rugged Highlander, she drops everything and takes on a quest that will alter everything she believes.

    Before their journey ends, not only will Duncan and Brigid battle an ancient curse, they must also find the courage to believe in the destiny that brought them together.

    Excerpt:

    He stood next to the waterfall. Beads of water glistened from his dark locks.

    Brigid watched as they trailed down his chiseled torso, traveling down to where his tartan was wrapped low on his waist. The wind whipped at the folds of his plaid, the power coiling within and around him, as mystical as the land he stood on.

    Ancient warrior,” she uttered softly.

    When she looked up into his eyes, they smoldered with desire, and it startled her. A sensual shiver ran through her, wanting to be crushed within his embrace. The raw desire to be in this man’s arms, touching and tasting him, was so potent, she could feel her heart hammering inside her chest.

    He tilted his head to the side, as if studying his prey.

    Brigid didn’t know if she should run or step into his massive arms.

    He took a step toward her, and her pulse quickened. The very air around her seemed electrified. He then took another...and another, until he stood merely inches in front of her.

    Her breathing became labored, as he bent his head leaning close to her ear. She was engulfed in a sensual haze wanting his lips to touch her anywhere and put an end to her torture. His mouth was so close, she could feel a dark lock of his hair against her cheek, and she shuddered.

    “Bring me back my sword,” he growled into her ear.

    Brigid’s eyes flew open, clutching the sheets as the last fragments of her dream faded.

Review

Dragon Knight's Sword is the first in Mary Morgan's Dragon Knights series. Mary opens with the accidental death of Meggie, the Dragon Knights' sister, and the doom upon the brothers. You'll love the wonderful, sexy hero, and the feisty heroine. It took me a little bit to realize there are two druids, with intertwining fates. I was at first suspicious of Cathal, but came to respect him as a druid worth listening to. There were quite a few surprises in this tale, and also a lot of sly humor. I especially appreciated the fae warrior (who would think of mistaking him for a Norse god?). You've got to love finding him in a story set in the early 1200's in Scotland. I think the best part is getting wrapped up in the story, and was especially taken with little Nell's family and the other pieces of life that made the characters vivid and alive. The story telling reminded me of Karen Marie Moning, pre-Fever. Sit back, relax, get lost in the story, and enjoy.

    I want to start by saying I have waited for this book since the day Mary mentioned she was trying to find a publisher. I knew, at that moment, this story would be a worthy read. I felt it to my core....and it is!

    Descended from the Tuatha de Danann, half human, half fae, they are the Guardians of the Dragons....The Dragon Knights. With the coming of Christianity, the dragons perished - all but one. The Mackay Clan took her out of Eire into Scotland. An evil order destroyed the clan and the guardians dispersed. Only, one will fight for right....Duncan Mackay.

    Scotland - 1204

    Brothers Angus, Duncan, Stephen, and Alastair await their punishment as their younger sister, Margaret, lies dead. They have fouled holy ground by the battle and killing. The Guardian comes and levels a curse upon their heads for tainting the sacred ground. They were honorable men who now are made to live with their disgrace....to live in shame, without honor, until the curse is broken.

    Present Day - Seattle, Washington

    Brigid and her friend Lisa own an antique shop. Brigid receives a sword in an oak box and it has came from Scotland with a note... a verse mentioning destinies and fates and returning the sword to it's rightful place. There is no return address. When Brigid touches it, she gets light headed and knows there is something more surrounding this sword. It's a beautiful, old, heavy sword with a stone in the hilt and a dragon carved down the blade with Celtic carvings. Brigid has always believed the Old Ways and legends but when it's dropped into her lap she's almost gob smacked. Through a professor she knows, she learns it is part of the relics the Dragon Knights protected. The Order possessed the sword, stone, axe, shield, and book and each relic was bonded with a knight. She has the sword of Duncan Mackay and she is to return it to Scotland. The question that burns in her is, "Why HER???".

    Take a love for medieval history, throw in an ancient relic, a "Viking God", a dragon, and a curse and you find yourself thrown back to the 13th century into the arms of the man not "OF " but "IN" your dreams. Brigid is a hoot! Fiery, saucy, and just out and out full of spunk who left me laughing many times. Duncan is a warrior who is wounded to his soul. Carrying guilt so deep he sees no light or future. Healing is heading his way but there will be prices to pay from both Duncan and Brigid to reach it.

    I laughed and when I cried, I cried hard. I even found myself wanting to step right through the pages to stab a sword deep into the black heart of one druid, Lachlan. Plain and simple, this story and all the characters moved me to my soul.

    I have to start with the residents of the village where Brigid stays when she gets to Scotland....magical....plain and simple.
    Conn - the elite of the Fenian Warriors. Yes, I want one of my very own... I smile at him with his Viking God self!
    Moira - a woman who works in the castle, who any woman would be blessed to call friend.
    Matilada, an old healer who this reader feels has a soul older than time. She cares deeply for Duncan and, in in time, with Brigid herself.
    Finn and Nell - two small children whom Duncan protects that climbed into my lap and into my heart as I read. Nell's "family' reminds me of the Misfit Toys from Toy Land.
    Cormac, Laird of Castle Creag - Duncan's best friend who, bless his heart, took a few punches but always left me smiling.
    Cathal - a Druid who's soul truly lives, I believe.
    Archibald - a professor Brigid had in college who became like family to her. There is more to him than meets the eye, I believe, and I have a feeling we may not have seen the last of him or his assistant, Ms. Peterson.
    Sorcha, Cathal's falcon and the dragon, who we all now know as Nessie.

    I saw deeper than the words written on these pages, straight into a true medieval heart, and that one belongs to Mary Morgan. Her words transport, and if you believe, they will speak to your soul. I've read for many years now and I can count on one hand the authors that move me this deeply. She is one of them.

    I think we all have our own inner demons we struggle with through our lives and it's how we overcome those things that makes us. This story is about struggles, the hope and faith we have to face them, and love....it's about love.
