Holly Jennings wasn’t planning on another trip to Scotland. And she certainly wasn’t planning on a trip down memory lane with the hot Highlander who broke her heart. But she’s never been much of a planner — more like a roll-with-the punches country gal. A good thing too, because “one last request” may not be the only thing a beloved mentor left her in his will. Before Holly knows it, she’s heading on a mysterious mission to a remote island — and straight into danger.
Dragon shifter Lachlan McKenney likes his life logical and organized — not turned upside down by the lithe, impulsive beauty he’s been trying to forget for years. Especially now that he’s busy guarding a ruthless archenemy who’s plotting to escape an island prison.
But Holly awakens every emotion Lachlan has been trained to resist: passion, hope, and forbidden desire. Apparently, there’s no outrunning fate, just as there’s no shirking duty. Against the odds, Lachlan must keep Holly safe on her mission to carry out a venerable old dragon’s last wishes. At the same time, he must resist temptation, because letting his focus slip could cost Holly her life — and unleash a deadly foe.
Fantastic! This couple is decidedly different from the other Fire Maiden couples. To start with, she’s a dragon shifter and has been shifting since childhood. None of the others had been. Then, we find out that this is actually a second chance for this couple. They had met a decade ago, just before he left for the French Foreign Legion. Lachlan and Holly are a wonderful pair.
As always, the descriptions of the area and the surrounds are superb. You can truly get a great sense of the area where the action is taking place.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to read this one before it was published. I truly enjoyed it.
