Irish warrior, Desmond O'Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.

Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.

When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?

A delightful magical adventure that weaves Irish and Scottish mythical lore... A Highland Moon Enchantment by Mary Morgan is a lovely historical time travel romance novella in the author’s Dragon Knights series. This tale relates the story of Irish warrior Desmond O'Quinlan and warrior Ailsa MacDuff and the fulfillment of the bardic prophecy that concerns them… You should know that A Highland Moon Enchantment works well as a stand alone if that is your preference. Mary relates just enough of past history that newbies are never lost. That said, fans of the series will recognize Desmond and the other O’Quinlan brothers as they were previously introduced in Dragon Knight’s Axe, the third book in the series. Dragon Knight’s Axe told the story of Desmond’s sister, Fiona and Dragon Knight Alastair, who are now husband and wife. That book also made it clear that Desmond does not get along with Alastair. As this novella opens, it’s apparent that there’s been no relief for Fiona with that aspect as she has her hands full mediating between her husband and brother. Ailsa is the heir to the Ailsa Craig tribe. We first meet Ailsa when she, her bodyguard, her father and some of their tribe have made the long journey to bury Ailsa’s mother’s remains when they’re attacked by the English. Desmond and Alastair are out together in the forest when they come upon Lady Alisa MacDuff and her remaining party. Desmond and Alastair quickly offer their aid and hospitality. She is a woman who can take care of herself, but in this situation, she’s thankful for their assistance. There are sparks between Aisla and Desmond from the start and the pull between them strengthens as they spend more time together. Her mother had foretold that a great love was in Aisla’s destiny. Yet she and Desmond come from different tribes, so there can be no future for them. Could this be what her mother foretold or is their attraction only A Highland Moon Enchantment? I knew once I read that Desmond didn’t believe in love that he’d soon find himself besotted. Sure enough. Besides his feud with his sister’s husband, Desmond is dealing with a further challenge – his unwanted attraction to the independent Ailsa. Desmond’s heart races every time he’s near Ailsa and he doesn’t know how to deal with these strange feelings. When the times comes, will Desmond let Ailsa go or will he realize that their love is worth fighting for? Mary’s writing is flowing and vividly descriptive. The story line is well-plotted and teeming with twists and unexpected surprises. This delightful magical adventure weaves Irish and Scottish mythical lore, the Fae, Warriors and Knights into a passionate historical romance. If you enjoy romances that mix fantasy with sexy, brawny heroes, strong, gifted women, and a good measure of danger, I’d encourage you to check out A Highland Moon Enchantment. It’s actually a great way to dive into this series if you haven’t yet done so.

This was such an exciting story. I loved the Dragon Knights storyline. This was a great addition with Fiona brother trying to find his purpose in life. Desmond and Ailsa finding each other and their lives change forever. I loved this book.

Mary's books are such a delight, so full of dragons, magic, time travel and Fae. To read one of her books is to step into another world and be immersed in the wonder of romance and fantasy. This story is back in the world of Dragon Knights and Fenian Warriors. The Fae has allowed family to visit. Desmond is visiting with his sister Fiona, who has married Alastair MacKay, Dragon Knight. Desmond is not so comfortable with his new In-Laws and so Fiona has requested an extended visit for him to work this out. While there Bran MacDuff and his only daughter and heir, Ailsa are traveling through on their way to the Loch to scatter her mother's ashes. Alisa is also special having the ability to sense storms. Bran will not acknowledge a daughter has been given one of his lines special gifts since it goes to the males of the line while the females are gifted with healing. Along their journey they find themselves in an epic struggle against evil that requires Desmond and Alistair to work together to aid the MacDuffs. Loved going back into Mary's magical world and living their adventure with the characters. Thank you Mary and Wild Rose Press for the free ARC for an unbiased review.

Do you like fantasy, dragons, true love, time travel, and men of honor with women of like ilk? You'll love this series! This novella, however longer than most, is a most pleasurable return to the world of the Dragon Knights. Having enjoyed the complete series, I read with eagerness. Morgan entertains, mixing fantasy with men of honor, who find their other halves in women of strength, compassion, and fortitude. One of the many twists is the women are from the future or have lived much of their lives there. So if you are a time travel fan, this series would interest you. Morgan’s descriptive world-building, set in a plot propelled with twists and surprises is totally engrossing. When I’ve had the pleasure of listening to her books, the narrator captures the humor, the pacing of the story and its various accents. In this tale, we reacquaint ourselves with the O’Quinlan brothers from Dragon Knight’s Axe, book 3 of the series. Desmond’s sister, Fiona, is married to Alastair MacKay. The Fae have something to do, okay a lot to do, with pulling strings in the magical mists. Much is at stake for them, as you get to discover. Anyway, Desmond doesn’t get along with Alastair, adding an element of challenge to the story. Desmond O’Quinlan, an Irish warrior, deals with a further challenge – his attraction of the independent woman, Ailsa MacDuff, also a warrior among her people. Ailsa is the heir to the Ailsa Craig. She is a woman who can take care of herself, but in certain situations, she’s more than thankful for aid from Desmond. Desmond is pulled into the deepening struggle the Fae, Fenian Warrior and Dragon Knights have ahead of them. He has been chosen (by the Fae, hence he doesn’t know) to be a leader of warriors to battle what surely will be an epic battle of wills. Join Morgan as she pulls us into the fairyland of Fae, Fenian Warriors, strong and gifted women along with their men, who must combat great evil. If you haven’t started the series, it’s time to start because the second series is tied to the first. I, frankly, am overjoyed!
