Series: Order of the Dragon Knights #1
Duncan Mackay will do anything to lift the curse from his family — even forfeit his own life. But his plans change when he encounters the woman from his dreams, literally. She is from the future, somehow has his lost sword, and can talk to the Dragon that is able to lift his family’s curse.
Brigid O'Neill has spent her life listening to the mythological legends from Ireland and Scotland. So, when an ancient sword lands at her doorstep and she starts dreaming of a rugged Highlander, she drops everything and takes on a quest that will alter everything she believes.
Before their journey ends, not only will Duncan and Brigid battle an ancient curse, they must also find the courage to believe in the destiny that brought them together.
My Rating: 3 Roses
Brigid was a great heroine. She was clever and stronger than she gave herself credit for. She was a likable, if not particularly memorable, character. I thought she was lovely.
Duncan was wonderful. He was burdened underneath the guilt of what he did to become cursed (though there was more to that then met the eye), but even though he thought himself a monster, it was clear that he was an honorable man who was very loyal and could be so sweet. He was great and I really liked him.
The romance was good. It took a while to start up, but once it it, I thought they were very sweet together. And, they definitely had some chemistry going on between them. I thought they were a lovely couple.
The plot was okay. It was a bit slow at first, but things pick up about a third of the way through and I was kept interested from then on, though never quite hooked. There were plenty of secrets and deceptions that kept me guessing, particularly the secret of what was really happening the night that Duncan was cursed. I enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.
Dragon Knight's Sword was an enjoyable time-travel romance. It had its flaws, but it was still a good read that I ended up liking. Romance lovers, you might want to look this one up.
