The Dragon Wore a Kilt
In the northern reaches of Scotland rests Loch Saorach, home to an ancient legend—a dragon. The Matasan family has guarded the loch and its dragon for centuries.
Over the years Saorach has claimed humans, imbuing them with his fae magic. Connor Matasan, the arrogant Earl of Glencarol, is a recent acquisition. Like all those possessed and transformed by the dragon’s ancient magic, Connor is sith, immortal and commanding powers beyond the human norm.
Middle aged wife and mother Lila is vacationing in Scotland when Saorach chooses her to join his brood. Her transformation to an eternally young sith is painful and compounded by the loss of everything she holds dear. Waking to a new life, she is utterly dependent upon Connor and his family. Lila feels trapped and resents that the dragon has bound her to Connor, soul to soul, passion to passion: a passion Connor cannot control, a passion Lila fears.
Will the magic that brought them together destroy them?

“You vowed to love your husband until death, correct?”
“And then you died.”
“But I did not die.”
He cleared his throat and said, “Yes, my dear, you did die. There is nothing left of the woman who was Maggie beyond the memories of what used to be.”
“That makes no sense, Hamish.”
“No, it doesn’t if you refuse to think beyond what you saw and knew. But you’ve seen and learned beyond the ordinary now. You met the water monster. You saw your physical body completely remodel itself. You exist beyond the ordinary as does Connor. You are beyond the normal rules of humanity.”
She said nothing, pondering his words. Then she asked, “But what about this … this thing I have with Connor?”
