“This is a beautifully written love story, and an interesting twist on the old legend of Robert the Bruce and the terrible Black Douglas. The dragon angle is very creative and the characters have lots of depth. The story stays true to Scottish Medieval history and this is much appreciated. … The plot is complicated and keeps the reader engaged throughout the story.”
“VictoriaZak delivers a well-executed novel and a thrilling paranormal/highland romance!”
The past never stays in the past, it rears its ugly head eventually. James the Black Douglas knows this all too well. With a past that has left him vengeful and his dragon blood thirsty, his reputation as a ruthless warrior haunts his enemies in their sleep. As his allegiance stands with Robert Bruce, the King of Scotland, he must now repay a debt to the king and agrees to marry his daughter, Abigale Bruce. The problem is he doesn’t want a wife. When flames start to burn out of control between him and the auburn-haired lass, he must decide to either kindle the flames of passion or shelter her from the truth and set her free.
