Product Description

"I love this series and the characters that the author has created are wonderful."
~ Paranormal Romance Guild, 5 Stars

A long forgotten Ancient kingdom has been awakened and threatens to change the Dragonkine world forever.

Can passion weather the dragon’s storm?

The only true pleasures in life Conall Hamilton yearned for were to marry a good woman, raise a family, and hide away into seclusion to live a normal life away from battle and war, not an easy task for the Dragonkine warrior and Clan Douglas’s second in command. Assigned to investigate an allied clan, he vows upon his return to marry his love, Effie. That’s until the Dragonkine warrior finds himself accused of a crime he did not commit, murder. Imprisoned, he must find a way to escape not only to save his own life but to save the life of the woman he loves.

In time the past will catch up with you…

Effie Douglas is a survivor. Though not born a Douglas, Effie leaves her old life behind to seek safety within Clan Douglas. For five years Conall Hamilton has been her secret lover and savior, helping her pick up the pieces of her damaged past. Hiding the true nature of their relationship from their clan had become a burden for the red-headed lass and now she desires more. She wants Conall’s name. When Effie is summoned home, she is plagued with unwanted memories, treachery, and new found information that will change her life forever. Will Effie have the courage and strength to weather the storm that rages around her?

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo! Another fantastic Dragon story!! 14 January 2015
By Betty Olsen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is book 2 of the Guardians of Scotland Series and it's Conall Hamilton and Effie Maxwell's story.

Conall has had a hard life. When he lost is wife and son, he joined the Knights of Templar. Conall escaped when the French King went after the Templar's. Lord James Douglas, also the Dragonkine commander, befriended Conall and gave Conall a purpose in life again. He became one of Lord James' best friends and warrior and he also happens to be a silver and gray storm dragon. Conall has found a new love in Effie Maxwell. Effie had escaped from her home because of the mental and physical abuse of her bastard (literally) brother, who was jealous of the love she shared with their father. She has been hiding at the Douglas Castle for 5 years. She loves Conall too, but wants more, she wants to be his wife and not just his lover.

Some unforeseen events happen and this fantastic story takes off. Will the two lovers get married? Be prepared for lots of sexy romance,
suspense and mayhem. The author really engages your emotions from the start to finish! I can't wait to see what awaits us in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book by Victoria Zak 6 February 2015
By Angela C. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Highland Burn by Victoria Zak is the 2nd book in the 'Guardians of Scotland' series. It is also the second book that the author has written. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the first one in the series. The cover of this book it hot!

Conall Hamilton is a storm dragon, and able to shift into his dragon at will. He is a strong, fierce warrior. He is also afraid to love again since his wife died, but that changes whenever he is around Effie.

Effie has been living among his clan for 5 years now. When she arrived 5 years ago, she had been beaten and battered. Sharing what happened only with one person. Conall and Effie have developed a special relationship, one as lovers and as friends. Effie loves Conall, and is determined that Conall is going to make an honest woman at of her, or else.

I am glad that Effie and Conall have gotten their own story. They are perfect together. They have one thing in common, they are willing to protect each other at all cost! Victoria did a wonderful job with writing Effie and Conall's story. The story line moved a long smoothly, and at a steady pace. I was not bored for one second.

I am also glad that Victoria showed us more dragon action in this book. The Dragonkine warriors are like brothers, and they help each other if the need arises. In this book it did, and there wasn't a dull moment. I love the chemistry between Conall and Effie. There are several steamy moments in this book, but they were done in a tasteful (yet hot) way.

Victoria Zak has a way with words, and I can't wait for the third book in the series. There are a few questions left unanswered in this book, but I am sure we will get the answers in the 3rd one. I recommend this book to anyone that loves historical romance, and has a need for a dragon!

3.0 out of 5 stars ...don't meddle in the affairs of dragons; for you are crunchy and tasty with ketchup! 12 February 2015

I begin these types of paranormal stories with a very wide open mind and I understand an author has license to take liberties to convey their story, and thats fine...but I feel they should at the very least use the proper dialogue for the era that we're reading. Did people say "piss off" in this era that we're reading? Or "stick around" or did they understand what a "split personality" was? Did they "flip off" someone? Or give the one finger salute? Did they say that or infer those actions? Usually I'd forgive and overlook these types of inconsistencies...I mean "who cares"?, right??.... but they became too overwhelming.'s my review.

Since time before time began, there were Dragonkine; a powerful and ancient race of both dragon and human spirits that can shift into the forms of each. (pretty awesome, huh?)..... Legend is they provided balance to the world as they were fierce warriors of unstoppable strength and power, but unstable without a mate. They ruled together with the Scots. And then they were deceived and destroyed by humans....all but seven.

With the death of his wife and young son, Sir Conall Hamilton has become a shell of himself...and blames himself for failing to protect them. He has become an emotionless, lonely being. Conall is very handsome with his tall, lean but muscular physique and stormy gray eyes. Conall is a Storm Dragon and after five years of mourning the loss of his young family, it's time to stop grieving. He's found his mate...

Effie Maxwell Douglas is tired of her secret romance with Sir Conall Hamilton and wants marriage. Effie is a beautiful young woman with her long and lushly thick curly red hair and vivid forest green eyes. She has escaped from and survived untold, horrendous physical abuses in her young life. But Effie is strong and full of sass.

I tried to like this story as much as I loved the first story "HIGHLAND BURN". But there were too many questions with this plot. Too many loose threads, gaping holes and inconsistencies. After suffering endless physical abuse through her life...after being forced into prostitution and being beaten almost unto death for refusing this life, or simply arguing her plight...I ask you, WHY would a person willingly return to that horrible life they escaped from? Yes, I understand Effie went back because she thought it was her father sending for her...but still...wouldn't you send a messenger? Wouldn't you at least write a letter and send someone else to deliver it to your father, confirming his request? I mean after all, you almost died once...WHY would you return?? Wouldn't you ask yourself, "why did my father not send for me before now"? And HOW does anyone even know where she's been for 5 years? Nobody from her former life has contacted do they know where she's been? <shaking my head>..

And when Conall fall's into a trap...a "set-up", and he's falsely accused of murder and imprisoned...WHY does Effie feel it's her fault? I mean, Conall goes to this Castle to mend bridges between two feuding has nothing to do with her. So WHY does she blame herself? <shaking my head again>... She didn't do anything to cause him to willingly go to this Castle...he was there for other reasons that didn't concern her. I don't get why she continually faults herself. For all the intelligence we're told she has, this girl isn't very bright. I mean, she criticizes her clan for believing the lies her murderous, scumbag brother is telling...when SHE did the same thing! Yep...she did. She believed every word her nasty brother said before someone else told her the truth. She criticizes her clan for believing her beloved Conall murdered her father...WHEN SHE THOUGHT THE SAME THING! Criminitley!! She was quick to pass judgement on an innocent man WHY is she blaming her clan for doing the very same thing?

There was so much I loved about this story-------and so much that burned my biscuits and frustrated me to no end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 is just as great as the first! 17 February 2015
By Shawna Marie - Published on

Highland Storm, By Victoria Zak, is the 2nd book in the Guardians of Scotland Series. This is Conall and Effie’s story. After reading the first book I was really excited to read this one and I am so happy to report that it did not disappoint! This book was just as good, if not better than the first.
Conall, a sexy yet sweet and caring Dragonkine falls for the beautiful redhead Effie who has fallen for him as well. But both Conall and Effie have pasts that haunt them. Conall must let go of his past while Effie must come face to face with the horrible secrets and life she thought she left behind for good and conquer it so that they can have a future of love and happiness with each other.
Not only do you get to read about those two lovers other but Victoria did something I love in serial books; she let you see a glimpse of the main characters from the last book in this one. That’s right James and Abigale’s story continues, along with the fight to save Scotland. In this adventurous story of love, betrayal and secrets you will be hooked from the very beginning.

Will the Dragonkine be able to hold back the forces trying to wake the ancient kings? Will Conall and Effie conquer their demons and be able to live happily ever after? You have to read the book to find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another 5-Star Sexy Dragon Shifter! 14 January 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Another 5-Star Sexy Dragon Shifter! Conall is...whew! Fire breathing hot, but Effie? Our dear little redhead steals the show! I love a strong-willed heroine and Victoria Zak certainly did Effie justice. Her and Conall's chemistry is off-the-charts perfect! And YES-YES-YES! More dragon shifting action! And maybe even a little dragon-play *wink-wink*. I love the sinister sub-plot weaved seamlessly into this story and can't WAIT to see where Victoria takes us next. Captivating and fun-tastic read. Bravo!
