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?

Shawna's Review

"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!

Highland Storm - Author Photo
Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Sottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin. 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.
Although, she never sought out a writing career, her desire for the written word grew the more she read. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn. The Guardians of Scotland series continues this winter with Highland Storm.
Now, Victoria Zak lives in the sunshine state with her husband, two beautiful children, and three furry friends. Living in paradise, being a stay at home, and to be able to share her stories has been a blessing.
Victoria loves to hear from her readers. You can connect with her through FB, Twitter, G+, and her website,
