Overview

Amid cannon fire, and the threat of Civil War, love and trust will find a way.

Dru Little flew away from her home in a cave beneath a Scottish Island to end her lonely existence and find companionship across the sea. Her journey in late 1860 has led her to the modern American city of Charleston, South Carolina. Hiding her true self, she takes over the life of a serving girl and enjoys the hard life working in a tavern near the wharves. She has no idea that her life will turn upside down in a dark alley the moment a handsome soldier saves her life.

Lieutenant Shaw Stenhouse has his own worries. Southern secessionists are talking up a storm in Charleston. His fellow Federal soldiers are suddenly at risk from the community they are here to protect. The possibility of civil war takes a backseat when he saves a comely lass from drunken sailors. A good deed and a stolen kiss put a smile on his face until the threat of war becomes a reality. Their instant attraction proves disastrous when Dru spots her former lover, the Black Dragon, working for General Beauregard and the southern troops. As the clandestine group plans their attack on Fort Sumter, and Shaw’s soldiers, she takes to the sky.

Dru fights against the threat of detection, while she fears losing Shaw’s love. What will he do when he finds out that she is a powerful Scottish dragon Hell-bent on carrying him to safety? When Shaw discovers her hiding inside the heavily guarded fortress, thoughts of espionage—and worse—catapult the two lovers into danger from many sides.

When her former lover threatens Shaw, Dru must decide which is more important: protecting another of her kind, now nearly extinct, or protecting the human male, the man she has come to love.

Dru is living in Charleston SC in another persons body. She came across the sea from Scotland. No one knows the real Dru not yet anyway. Behind the building where Dru works some drunken sailors happen upon her and start giving her a hard time. She would love to show herself and taken care of them, but she knew she could not, when Shaw comes along and saves Dru. Dru and Shaw instantly feel something for each other as Shaw steals a kiss. Shaw has to leave but will come back in a weeks time. In the mean time there is talk of the south succeeding and going to war. Now Shaw a federal solider and his men are now at risk of becoming the enemy real quick of the people they are trying to protect. Shaw stops coming around as they have to move to Fort Sumter and try to get supplies and get ready if anything should happen. Dru finds out her old lover and fellow dragon called the Black Dragon is working for the south. Dru decides to fly over Ft Sumter to see how Shaw is fairing and make sure they are safe. Dru knows it is only a matter of time before things start to get worse. I am a big fan of Nancy's, so it is no secret I love this book as well as her others. Nancy's knowledge of Scottish history shines through cv again. The details are well-developed, I felt like I was in Charleston. As a person who lives in SC it makes me think of how Charleston was back in the days of the Civil War. The characters worked well with each other and Dru had me from page one. I wanted to see her happy and fall in love. The story will have you turning the pages to see what will happen next and will Dru take a chance. Another book to add to my re-read section.

This was a fun story. It was a short historical book with the beginning of the Civil War. A lady dragon and a northern soldier fall in love . It was short and sweet, but I loved reading this book.

While I don't usually opt to read this type of book, I did enjoy it a lot. I love historical, time travel romances. This one was just had a different twist.
