To say that Lady Skena MacIain has had a difficult year would be a mild understatement. The battle at Dunbar has left her a widow with two young children and a keep to care for. The battle has also left her beloved Scottish fortress without protectors and she fears for the future of her people and her children.

As the Christmas season approaches, Skena’s children, Andrew and Annis find a mysterious warrior in the midst of a blinding snowstorm. Even though the man is sick with fever, the children are convinced that the Lady of Winter, Cailleach has sent them a miracle in bringing Noel de Servian in their lives. As Skena nurses the handsome Norman knight back to health, she begins to believe that her children might just be right and that Noel could bring salvation to her little keep. However, there is a reason Noel is there and that secret could ruin any chance he had to winning the heart of the beautiful woman who nursed him back to health.

From the moment the injured Noel de Servian comes into Skena’s life, he feels the overwhelming need to protect her. Even in the middle of a snowstorm, he finds the will to stand and aid her against a wolf attack.

Skena is taken aback by the overpowering feelings that she has developed for this strange man who lies healing in her bed…feelings that she had never felt for her late husband. The passion she feels for Noel confuses her as she fights the desire to crawl into bed with this perfect man.

Just when I think she’s outdone herself, Deborah MacGillivray surprises me! Again, Ms. MacGillivray has created a hero that completely sweeps you off your feet and makes your heart melt the snow on a cold winter night! Noel de Servian is all that a woman could ask for. Not only does he take care of his lady, but he also has taken her children as his own. This Norman knight absolutely carries the title of the strong and sexy Dragons of Challon very well!

Thanks, Carol.

Their romance certainly has had a super launch! It sold out of print two weeks before it was due to be shipped, then on the day BN began sending out orders it rose to #287.
With such wonderful reviews as this, I am breathing a little easier these days.
