Duncan soon learns that he was wrong about his dragon mate being dead and she’s very much alive—and determined to return to the twenty first century. Forced to work together, Holly and Duncan must mate to save the innocent and learn true love is timeless.
A KNIGHT’S TERROR EXCERPT:
IoIo thrust his weapon downward, aiming for Duncan’s throat. Duncan blocked the deadly lunge, twisted his body and then using all his strength, shoved IoIo’s sword away from him. IoIo made an exposed cut, slicing into Duncan’s mail, cutting into his bicep. Blood gushed down Duncan’s arm, turning his fingers red.
IoIo smiled. “Yer dead, dragon.”
Blazing hot pain surged through Duncan’s arm. He gritted his teeth. It was an ugly slash, pumping the cursed poison through his veins.
“Not yet.” Drawing on his fading dragon strength, Duncan lunged. He slashed IoIo’s shield with his sword, shattering it. IoIo screamed. His arm dropped, giving Duncan the edge to slit his throat then knocked the dreaded sword out of his IoIo’s now limp hand. Blood gushed out of IoIo’s throat, spilling down his breastplate like long fingernails. He swayed and fell to the ground, dust flying into the air. He stared up at Duncan in horror as the life slowly faded from his eyes.
Ian pulled back on his horse. The whites of his eyes rolled with fear. “What are ye, Sheehy? No man can do this.”
Panting hard, Duncan stepped in front of the demonic sword, preventing either knight the opportunity to seize it. He readied for an attack. He could smell Ian’s fear—the air was thick with terror.
Although he was the youngest, Inke wasn’t a coward. He pressed his heels into his horse’s side and aimed his lance at Duncan. Duncan brought his sword down hard on the lance, forcing it out of his hand. Inke reached for his sword, but he was too slow. Using all of his strength, Duncan rammed his sword through Inke’s chest armor. Inke didn’t have time to scream before his arms and head went limp. Duncan dragged him off the horse—his body impaled on the crimson sword.
“Yer a demon!” Ian’s shrieking voice was a disgrace to his knighthood. He turned his horse and fled.
Duncan didn’t envy Ian’s fate when he returned to Castle Swan alone and empty handed.
He put his foot on Inke’s lifeless corpse and pulled out his blood-drenched sword. So much blood, so much death, so much evil.
He put his hand on the gnarled tree to steady himself, and the tree trembled. Pain pierced his hand, and he jerked it back. Weariness swept over him, and trees, horses, and corpses spun around him in a crazy dance. He couldn’t breathe, and his legs crumpled beneath him. His last thought before he passed out was that the menace had cursed him.
A soft caress stroked his cheek. Duncan woke with a start. Sir Robert stood over him, guarding him. The sun had moved in the sky. One minute he’d been leaning on the tree to catch his breath, and then he’d passed out from unbearable agony.
But he’d had a dream of the most beautiful woman. It hadn’t been Marigold. Marigold had had red hair and blue eyes and was short. This woman had been taller and slender and had blond hair and had the darkest green eyes like the thick trees of the Highlands. She’d been across an abyss. He hadn’t been able to get to her and she hadn’t been able to get to him. She’d been saying something, but he hadn’t been able to hear her. All he could remember was that she had worn a man’s tight blue trousers, and he’d wanted to run his hands up those sculpted legs.
Dark magic was at work here. The malice watched him, gloating over its victory. More of his magic had been stolen. It was dangerous.
