"A Fiery Adventure into the Drakkyn Realm"

Gabriel MacInnes is a werewolf, the second son of an Alpha Pack, who guards the Stone of Destiny. He has no desire to settle down with one woman, but then he never met a fiery demigoddess. Rowan an Morgaine is thrust upon him. He's forced to be her protector. She's stubborn, has a nasty habit of drinking blood, but fate has a sick sense of humor; Rowan may be his soul mate.

Rowan an Morgaine is running from a dragon prince, Lucien, who wants to claim her as his. She has no desire to belong to any man, but she never met a stubborn arukin shifter. Gabriel's determined to be her protector and will stop at nothing to do so. Gorgeous with a sexy Scottish brogue, strong, and dangerous ... Gabriel's another threat only it's her heart that's at stake now.

Not only will the two fight in the Drakkyn realm to stop Lucian and his devious father, but their love for each other is also tested.

This is the second in the series for Kendra Leigh Castle. Dark Highland Fire is a keeper on my shelf! She brings her characters and the legends alive, sending you to another world where dragons, demons, and demigoddess' exist. The fiery relationship between Rowan and Gabriel sizzles as they fight and argue ... and love. They're perfectly matched making them a formidable pair no one will want to mess with. You also can't help feeling a little sorry for Lucien and that's what makes him such a wonderful villain. I hope we haven't seen the last of him (hint hint.) I also found Bastian, Rowan's brother, an intriguing character, with secrets that still need to be revealed. I hope Ms. Castle plans on telling his story. This reader can't wait for more!

I also recommend Call of the Highland Moon. This is Gideon MacInnes and Carly Silver's story.

Is his devotion enough to save her from her own blood lust?

Gabriel MacInnes has led a charmed life. A Highland werewolf of Alpha lineage, he'd always thought that, as the second son, he would never have to worry much about responsibility. But with his Pack now squarely in the sights of an ancient and rediscovered enemy, everything has begun to change.

Exiled from the Drakkyn realm, on the run from the dragon prince who claims her as his own, the last thing Rowan an Morgaine wants is to deal with a bunch of overbearing shifters in the middle of nowhere. But when her hiding place on Earth is discovered, and with blood the only thing that can restore her waning power, the fiery demigoddess has little choice but to accept Gabriel as a protector ...

As the Earthly and Drakkyn realms converge, Gabriel and Rowan must decide how much they're willing to sacrifice for fate...and for one another.
