She was his saving grace.
The Red Hawk, warrior chieftain of Helmfirth, is an over bearing, dominating dragon who strikes fear in his enemies, until one day a nemesis dares to test his limits and attacks Hawk and all that he holds dear. With one foot in the grave, Hawk finds himself inside the walls of Dunfermline Abbey and his life at the mercy of Sister Kate. In repaying a debt for saving his life, Hawk accepts Kate’s proposal. Will her proposal be the death of him or save him from a terrible mistake?
He was her fall from grace.
Growing up in Dunfermline Abbey, boundaries and vows have kept Sister Kate safe until a wounded red-headed Highlander in desperate need of her help turns her guarded life upside down. The lure of this man brings out a side of Kate long suppressed, she now yearns to leave the Abbey in search of her true self. There’s one problem, she can’t make the daunting journey through the Highlands alone. She needs a Highlander with exceptional skills and she has her eyes set on one, Hawk.
A woman is being hunted by what we don’t know. She comes to the hard realization she needs to leave her baby at Dunfermline Abbey because Death is following her. Flash forward several years and we have Sister Kate at the abbey. She feels she doesn’t really belong; she tries very hard to be good, but she’s restless.
Kate finds a man seriously hurt while outside and gets him the medical help he needs. She is immediately smitten with him and finds out his name is Hawke. After he is healed and going back to his village she summons the courage to ask Hawke to take her with him. He agrees. What happens along the journey heats up his dragon blood and Kate struggles with her attraction and her promise to God.
Victoria Zak has taken highland history and woven that with fantasy and romance which makes for a really interesting read; the struggle of Kate and Hawke to not allow their feelings to change their future. I really loved watching the interaction of the two. Plus this story has dragons and big, strong Highlanders, which makes for great reading. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great romance and loves dragons and great action scenes.
I was gifted this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Victoria Zak is an internationally bestselling author in Scottish Historical Paranormal Romance. Her first book, Highland Burn, won an Honorable Mention at the 2015 RONE awards for best paranormal romance.
Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Scottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin, FL. From her High School band to the annual Highland Games that took place right across the street from her childhood home, the bagpipes beckoned her toward her calling. It seemed only natural for Victoria Zak to want to write in the Scottish historical romance genre. Add to the fact, she was also a paranormal romance junkie, there was no doubt that her influences would be the driving force behind her stories.
