Thankful Author 2017- Mary Morgan

What am I thankful for this year? As I sat down to pen this post, so many images flashed within my mind in a kaleidoscope of feelings, ranging from joyful to the frustrating and tearful. When I contemplated this post, two words came to mind:

Friendships ~ Those individuals I have never met face to face, but have formed deep friendships. Their words of wisdom, comfort, and encouragement have brought a new sense of the meaning of “friends.” They are true gems in my life.

Smiles ~ I’ve always said you can disarm anger in an instant with a smile. It may be fleeting, but it can help. Therefore, I’m grateful for all the smiles I’ve encountered on a daily basis. Even from a passing stranger. Often times, the unexpected gesture is the most meaningful. They injected light into my days that were filled with sadness. I felt touched by the simple act of a smile.

**A tale from the Order of the Dragon Knights

Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.

Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow. 

When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?

Author Bio:

Award-winning Scottish paranormal romance author, Mary Morgan, resides in Northern California, with her own knight in shining armor. However, during her travels to Scotland, England, and Ireland, she left a part of her soul in one of these countries and vows to return.
Mary's passion for books started at an early age along with an overactive imagination. She spent far too much time daydreaming and was told quite often to remove her head from the clouds. It wasn't until the closure of Borders Books where Mary worked that she found her true calling--writing romance. Now, the worlds she created in her mind are coming to life within her stories.

If you enjoy history, tortured heroes, and a wee bit of magic, then time-travel within the pages of her books.

Dare to journey with the Dragon Knights of Scotland!

They were an ancient order descended from the great Tuatha De Danann, a tribe from the Goddess Danu. Half human and half fae, each blessed with mystical powers. They were also given holy relics and guardianship over the dragons.

With the dawn of Christianity, the dragons were systematically hunted down and slain leaving only one. The Dragon Knights took her from Ireland to a land across the sea, settling in the Great Glen near Urquhart. The clan was known as the MacKay clan, descendants from the MacAoidh.

Yet, there were those who deemed the Order had too much power, and they tried to possess it for themselves. They were evil and twisted, and their plan succeeded one fateful night. A battle was fought and their sister was killed.

The Clan Mackay is no longer.

The Dragon Knights scattered across the land.

Yet out of the darkness, they will each fight for redemption.



  1. Along with you, I cherish my cyber-colleagues' friendships as we share our struggles and successes via social media, blogs, and promos. BTW, your cover is outstanding! Nice post.

    1. Thanks, Susan. I'm really in love with this cover. Debbie Taylor is amazing! Some of the greatest friends I've met since becoming an author have been with TWRP.

  2. Probably the best thing for me about social media for writers is the ability to cheer on and vent to those that share the struggle. Sending you a smile! đŸ˜€Congratulations on your latest release. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. And I'm sending you a smile :) back, Charlotte! Thank you!

  4. Thank you, Angela! I am grateful for these posts and for our friendship. :)

  5. You are so right about the smiles. When I taught school, I stood at my door and welcomed every kid into my room with a smile. We don't know what is going on in other people's lives, and I figured for some of my kids, it might be the only smile they received.
    I still smile a lot. In the grocery store or at the mall, I smile at perfect strangers. Don't think I've ever had a negative response.
    Smiling at your beautiful cover and happy for your new release!

  6. Friendships and've narrowed down what's important in our lives, Mary. Thank you. What would we do without friends. A smile can make your day. Happy Thanksgiving.
