"Terrific DEBUT - An Author to Watch"

In Scotland, 1296, Lady Tamlyn, Countess of Glenrogha, was caught unawares when the mists that had shielded the sacred passes of Glen Shane for centuries failed to hide the valley allowing a horde of Norman warriors riding under the pennant of the Dragon of Challon to enter. About to be ravaged she caught herself muttering the words of an ancient spell of empowerment, stopped in horror when she realized that the words would summon the breath of the dragon. Consequently, it would be the Black Dragon of Challon who came to her aid, only to later imprison her - mind, body and soul.

Long obsessed with the three MacShane sisters who held titles to their own land King Edward wanted to see them wed and bred to Englishmen - referring to this plan as the 'Seeding of Scotland campaign'. Julian Challon, once the king's champion, was sent to accomplish this mission; secure the fortress of Glenrogha; and wed the Lady Tamlyn. After the atrocities witnessed at Berwick, and the madness that now consumed his king, Challon welcomed the mission, looked forward to settling down and raise fine sons.

Tamlyn was both fearful and mesmerized by the beauty of Challon. Descended from ancient Picts, her warrior heart knew she should despise the Norman, but her body betrayed her by the sheer magnetism of the most beautiful man she'd ever seen -- a man she 'knew' - if only from her dreams. Challon himself was stricken by the unusual cat-eyes of the young woman who though dressed simply had the heart of a warrior and the regal bearing of a princess. Never before had a woman so challenged and aroused him as much as she did. Challon may have been the warrior but it would be Tamlyn who would conquer and tame the mighty dragon with her love.

*** This impressive debut will enthrall the reader from the very first pages thrusting the reader immediately into the characters lives with vivid descriptions, rich historical detail, and a touch of mysticism that resonates from the ancients. Delivering this story with the skill of an accomplished wordsmith MacGillivray's inspired prose will move you from laughter to tears and a deeply abiding contentment long after the last page is turned leaving the essence of these two unforgettable characters to remain forever in your hearts. Written with a finely tuned passionate and sensual voice this love story will simply take your breath away. This is one for the 'keeper shelf' and one I most highly recommend.
