Fiona’s heart pounded rapidly, fearing it would burst. “So you claim to be the Black Dragon. And your name is Alastair.”

He slowly placed his hands on his hips. “Aye. Have ye heard of another?”

“And your last…I mean your surname, it is MacKay?” Oh God, please don’t say it.

Alastair’s smile vanished. “Aye.”

Goosebumps broke out on Fiona’s body. “Impossible.”

“As ye have stated, but ’tis the truth.”

Fiona’s voice trembled when she spoke, “If you are Alastair MacKay of the Clan MacKay…”

Aye.” His voice turning deadly.

“Then you are also one of the Dragon Knights.”

Back Cover Copy:
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?
