A Look At Mary Morgan & 'Dragon Knight's Axe' @m_morganauthor @GoddessFish #TimeTravel

Today we have author Mary Morgan visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* I am a constant daydreamer and have been told quite often to remove my head from the clouds. Yet, this is where I find the magic to write my stories. Not only do I love to weave a good tale, but I have a voracious appetite for reading. I worked for Borders Books for almost fourteen years. Imagine my delight to be surrounded by so many books, talking to others about them, and getting paid.
* Pure bliss!
* I have traveled to England, Scotland, Ireland, and France. There are those who know me well when I say, “My heart is in the Highlands.” I believe I have left it there or maybe in Ireland.
* When not writing, I enjoy playing in my garden—another place where magic grows. Of course, there is time spent with my family. They are the ones that keep me grounded.
* I love to hear from my readers.

What are you going to tell us about today?
* My story, Dragon Knight's Axe.
A look into the story
~ Blurb ~
* Battled scarred, Dragon Knight, Alastair MacKay, has fled to the seas to separate himself from his powers that are connected to the land. Yet, when he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland, he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and leading him on a journey to confront his greatest 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 ~
* 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. “ 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.

There is something very special about a man in a kilt.

Mary Morgan said...

Ooo...this reminds me of something I read recently, Mary. "A man in a kilt is like a box of chocolates. You can never get enough!" ;) Thanks so much for stopping by.

I had so much fun writing this scene, Debbie. Fiona totally surprised me when she jumped on the boulder to look Alastair square in the eyes. A "verra" brave lass. Thanks so much for stopping by. :)
