Today is the day to celebrate the release of Dragon Knight’s Axe!

As I stated in June’s newsletter, I never dreamed of having three books out within my published year. There are so many people to thank, but it’s you, dear readers–friends and family who have brought so much joy to me with your kinds words of encouragement and love for the Dragon Knights. To show my appreciation, I’m planning something special next week, so stay tuned.

I will be doing my first blog tour with Goddess Fish Promotions. From July 6-17, I’ll be visiting a different blog each day. I will be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card, too, after the end of the tour. You’ll be able to find where I’m at by clicking on the News and Events tab at the top my website.

Today I’m visiting Charlotte Cooper’s blog. So please stop on over and say hello. Click here to enter.

Don’t forget! This Sunday, 28th from 12:00pm to 8:00pm PST, is my facebook party for Dragon Knight’s Axe. There will my wonderful guest authors, contests, prizes, and lots of fun! I hope to see you there. Click on the link to rsvp.

Let’s take a peek into the world of Alastair and Fiona…


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?


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.


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.

Releasing his hold, his beast laughed, mocking him. He stared at her for a few moments before turning away. Stalking over to the ship, he climbed up the ladder.
