I'm very happy to welcome my friend, Mary Morgan, and her wonderful Dragon Knight's Shield to Medieval Monday. This is the twelfth installment of the Villain Theme blog post hop and the penultimate sample from each of the Medieval Monday authors' villain excerpt.

Duncan recoiled from the sight. “Stop, Angus—nae!”
Pure rage took over, the wind howling in his ears, but he gave no care. As the dragon blazed into the night sky, it seemed confused, wary. Its eyes burned red, glancing at Angus and then to Lachlan.
“Ye cannot rule the beast!” screamed Lachlan. “’Tis mine to control.” Pointing a finger at the dragon, he commanded, “Kill the man who binds ye in chains, and I will let ye roam the land.”
Follow along next week with excerpt #13 and the conclusion to my excerpt from DRAGON KNIGHT'S SHIELD http://www.marymorganauthor.com
Angus MacKay, leader of the Dragon Knights, failed his brothers and his clan upon the death of his sister. Now he must fight the darkness of despair tempting his soul. Back on Scottish soil, he comes face to face with Deirdre who can wield a sword as mightily as his warriors, and takes her captive. Yet, with each passing day, the fire dragon inside him roars to claim the one woman fate has destined for him.
Famed mystery writer, Deirdre Flanagan, is unprepared for the next chapter in her life. On a vacation to Scotland, she steps through the mists and enters into a skirmish alongside a Highlander. However, the fight has only begun, and now she must battle Angus as well as evil in order to claim the love of this Dragon Knight.
Will their love be powerful enough to shield them from danger, or burn them to ashes?
