Alana is just like any other maiden, waiting for her dragon to come... until Queen Elizabeth I declares that dragons and maidens in Scotland be destroyed. Instead of flirting with dragons in search of her mate, Alana is running for her life.
Disguised as a nun, Alana hides in a convent, watching as her future burns to ashes, but just when she thinks all the dragons are gone, a dangerous and destructive one strikes, laying waste to both the convent and her hopes.
The maiden has finally been claimed, and while she should be thrilled, her captor is far from the dragon of her dreams. Her descent into danger has just begun, but unbeknownst to her, Alana's quest for her true mate has, too.
James came to England seeking to avenge his Scottish countrymen and chart a course in a world that has chosen science over magic. A mage by training, he's evaded Queen Elizabeth's death squads, and through sheer persistence, is close to unlocking the secrets of England's undefeated dragons.
The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a bonnie lass like Alana, but her maiden magic calls to his. He can't deny the urge to protect her or to taste her sweet lips, but love is a complicated thing when you're behind enemy lines.
Somehow James must slay the dragon who has claimed Alana and keep the old ways burning bright for Scotland....without killing them both.
