It’s time for another Medieval Monday blog hop! Our theme is, “Author’s Choice”. Each author has selected an excerpt from one of their books to share with you over the next few months.
I’m excited to share the first excerpt which is from Mary Morgan’s book, A Highland Moon Enchantment.
At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

There in the shadows by the stairs, stood Desmond.
Had he been watching her all this time? Her heart pounded as he emerged. Freshly shaven, he wore a dark blue tunic edged in the same silver pattern as her dress.

You first meet this warrior in Dragon Knight’s Axe, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3
Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.
Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.
When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?
