Secret Realm’s New Year Blog Hop ~ Dragon Knight’s Shield!


Happy New Year! I love parties and thrilled to be a part of the Secret Realm’s New Year Blog Hop! I’m giving away a $10 Amazon gift card.

DragonKnight_sShield_w10248_750As most of you know, my latest release is Dragon Knight’s Shield, Angus MacKay’s story! I have teased you for weeks with excerpts–long and short. He is the oldest Dragon Knight–the leader of his clan. His power is the fire dragon. When he encounters Deirdre Flanagan, sparks and tempers will fly!


Angus MacKay, leader of the Dragon Knights, failed his brothers and his clan upon the death of his sister. Now he must fight the darkness of despair tempting his soul. Back on Scottish soil, he comes face to face with Deirdre who can wield a sword as mightily as his warriors, and takes her captive. Yet, with each passing day, the fire dragon inside him roars to claim the one woman fate has destined for him.

Famed mystery writer, Deirdre Flanagan, is unprepared for the next chapter in her life. On a vacation to Scotland, she steps through the mists and enters into a skirmish alongside a Highlander. However, the fight has only begun, and now she must battle Angus as well as evil in order to claim the love of this Dragon Knight.

Will their love be powerful enough to shield them from danger, or burn them to ashes?


His look was predatory, lustful, inviting, and she took a step backward. Words failed her as she took another step back.

He arched a brow and his smile became seductive. “Do I frighten ye?”

“No!” she lied. Like hell you do! You’re as gorgeous as sin standing there, and I want to rip your clothes from your body.

Pushing off from the wall, he stepped into the room and silently closed the door behind him, his eyes never leaving hers. His hair hung in soft waves past his shoulders, and her fingers itched to twine within them. Her body ached in places so deep—longing for even the slightest touch.

“Are ye unwell, my lady?”

The burr of his voice so low—so sexy, she could only stare at him until his words resonated in her mind. “No,” she replied softly, feeling the flames of desire heat not only her face, but also her entire body.

This time when he took another step closer, Deirdre didn’t back away. Now he stood so close she could feel the warmth of his breath across her face—a mix of wine and pure male.

She watched mesmerized as he reached for a lock of her hair, twining it around his finger. “So verra soft.”

Deirdre couldn’t breathe, as he let the curl unravel and cupped her face in his hands. “Ye confuse me. Ye torment me in my dreams,” he whispered against her cheek, sending a wave of pleasure down her spine.

Without thought, she groaned and leaned into him—his beard grazing her cheek. She no longer battled her mind for the man. “Kiss me, Angus.”

  1. Mary Preston

    I’d love to meet Queen Elizabeth I, Tudor England. I would like to come back with my head intact. She does fascinate.

    I’d love to meet Llewellyn, the last great Welsh Prince. I have always been fascinated by him & his history

  3. Suzie Johnson

    I’d like to meet Robert the Bruce —the info about his role in Scotland is intriguing

  4. Nicole Laverdure

    I would have like to meet Sir William Wallace, the great freedom fighter!

  5. Ashley Martinez

    I think it would be cool to meet Cleopatra or Jesus.

  6. Starr Shamek

    There are a lot of people I would like to go back a meet: but I would like to go back a little further to meet the druids and get the real story and why there is so much mystery surrounding them.

    • Exactly, Starr! Since most of their history was verbal (noting was written down), I would love to speak with them. Though, I would have to commit everything to memory. 🙂

  7. Rebecca James

    I would love to have met Jesus of Nazareth. I don’t mind where, although The Last Supper or after his resurrection would be my choice. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  8. Liette Bougie

    That’s funny… it seems my comment didn’t went through. OH well…
    I was saying: I’m going at the other end of the world… in Asia. More precisely the Siege of Kaifeng (Northern China) 1232-1233. I would love to meet General Subutai – he besieged the city. For research purposes for my novel, of course. (now whether or not I’ll end up finishing that novel, that’s another story). 🙂

    • Absolutely fascinating, Liette! What an interview that would be. I hope you finish your novel, too!

      Sorry about the glitch in your earlier comment. Computers can be fussy sometimes. 🙂

      • Liette Bougie

        I’m ĥoping to resume writing this year… this historical novel was started in 1978, in French. I’m planning to rewrite it entirely and in English (let’s say my writing style has changed dramatically over the years… 🙂 ) as an added challenge.

  9. Natasha Persaud

    I would have loved to meet Mother Theresa… she has left a lot of compassion and wisdom to us and I would have been delighted to meet her and bask in her knowledge

  10. catslady

    I would love to meet Cleopatra in Egypt and find out all her secrets.

  11. Roseann Victoria Bean

    I would like to go back to Scotland with my husband and meet his clan members, Mac Bean’s.

  12. Jeanne Miro

    If I could choose someone I would want to meet from a time long ago I would like to be John Rolfe and Pocahontas. I am “related” to them thru my mother’s line of the family and have always wondered how they felt with all the turmoil that affected their lives.

  13. Kathy O

    I would love to meet Joan of Arc in France as she was a born leader. Thank you.

  14. I’d like to meet the bilingual Shoshone woman Sacagawea. She ccompanied the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery expedition in 1805-06 from the northern plains through the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean and back. Her skills as a translator were invaluable, as was her intimate knowledge of some difficult terrain.

  15. Mary Anne Landers

    Thanks Mary. I’d go back and see my mom. She died when I was nineteen. Her death was sudden and unexpected. I’d do what I didn’t have the chance to do, tell her how much I love her. And that I would always miss her.

    • This is beautiful, Mary Anne. I’m so sorry for your loss. It reminds us how precious life is and that we should tell our loved ones how much we do care for them each and every day. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Dianne

    I am not as courageous a time traveler as the rest of you. I would like to go back just a century or less and meet Mahatma Ghandi. I would love to get to know this gentle man and ask him about his life. I would want to know, given that the untouchables were such pariahs, how he was able to integrate them into his life. Mostly I would like to hear him talk.

  17. Julie Fetter

    I would love to meet Thomas Jefferson in his later years at Monticello.

  18. Catherine Maguire

    I would love to Queen Elizabeth I who rule during Tudor England. She was such a fascinating person and a queen who ruled for many years.

  19. I would love to meet Marilyn Monroe. I don’t think I want to go so far back that the conditions were not that clean. If I do that, then I’ll meet Noah. I just love animals, and I would love to be on his ark.
