It’s Medieval Monday and Week Thirteen of our “First Encounter” theme. I’m delighted to welcome the lovely and talented Mary Morgan today! Don’t you love this cover?

But let’s focus on Mary’s thirteenth snippet from Dragon Knight’s Axe, Book 3 of her Order of the Dragon Knights series:
Intriguing little bird…
Alastair’s fists were clenched by his sides. How did this mere wisp of a woman know his true name? Very few had heard of the Dragon Knights. What made her so special? She was nothing but a slave, possibly cast out by her own people. Or so he thought.
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 toward the ship.
He heard her sharp intake of breath, and then she started to pound against his back. “Put…me down,” she demanded.
Follow along next week on Mary’s own blog for the final excerpt of her “First Encounter” with the hero and heroine of Dragon Knight’s Axe. http://www.marymorganauthor.com/blog

A little more about Dragon Knight’s Axe:
Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and 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?
