"The war for Scottish independence rages on, but it's only a matter of time before England is victorious. Exhausted and battle-weary, Highland dragon Erik MacAlasdair will face unknown seas to seek the Templar stronghold and claim a power so great it could free his beloved homeland forever. If only that kind of power didn't come with such a terrible price. Daughter of a mortal woman and an ancient dragon, Toinette has never forgotten the proud Scot who once stole her young heart--she'll gladly fight at his side. But when dark forces leave them stranded on a cursed island, it will take everything they have to defy their fate"--Back cover.
