A long forgotten Ancient kingdom has been awakened and threatens to change the Dragonkine world forever.
Can passion weather the dragon’s storm?
The only true pleasures in life Conall Hamilton yearned for were to marry a good woman, raise a family, and hide away into seclusion to live a normal life away from battle and war, not an easy task for the Dragonkine warrior and Clan Douglas’s second in command. Assigned to investigate an allied clan, he vows upon his return to marry his love, Effie. That’s until the Dragonkine warrior finds himself accused of a crime he did not commit, murder. Imprisoned, he must find a way to escape not only to save his own life but to save the life of the woman he loves.
In time the past will catch up with you…
Effie Douglas is a survivor. Though not born a Douglas, Effie leaves her old life behind to seek safety within Clan Douglas. For five years Conall Hamilton has been her secret lover and savior, helping her pick up the pieces of her damaged past. Hiding the true nature of their relationship from their clan had become a burden for the red-headed lass and now she desires more. She wants Conall’s name. When Effie is summoned home, she is plagued with unwanted memories, treachery, and new found information that will change her life forever. Will Effie have the courage and strength to weather the storm that rages around her?

The author has done it again in the second novel in the series, I thought the first one was good. This was even better, more dragons shifting and a plot that kept you coming for more. Each of these amazing novels can be read as a standalone; however, there is a bigger finale we just have to keep reading. Evil has a plot that just keeps building and the author has a way of keeping you on your toes by throwing breadcrumbs through the story following the next. I sure hope we first get all these other sexy Dragonkine novels first. Conall has been through a lot and fails to see himself as ever being truly able to go through that time in his life. He is very respectable, protective, and sexy as all get out. How can you not fall for him! Effie has escaped her past, she has lived in fear but is very independent and her strength shows towards the end. Will that be enough to overcome the perils? I loved how the author showed us both strength and weaknesses in her characters. The plot is original and one of a kind with plenty of suspense, romance, and a sweet revengful ending! We are introduced to some very interesting new characters! This is another amazing novel in the Guardians of Scotland Series and I look forward to seeing what is next in our adventure!
Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Sottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin. From her High School band to the annual Highland Games that took place right across the street from her childhood home, the bagpipes beckoned her toward her calling. It seemed only natural for Victoria Zak to want to write in the Scottish historical romance genre. Add to the fact, she was also a paranormal romance junkie, there was no doubt that her influences would be the driving force behind her stories.
Although, she never sought out a writing career, her desire for the written word grew the more she read. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn. The Guardians of Scotland series continues this winter with Highland Storm.
