My Chat with Mary Morgan

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a wonderful, sweet lady I met recently. How did we meet you ask?

Well… You know the new feature I started not long ago where I invite my friends for a chat with their book boyfriends, right? My friend Liz invited Alastair Colum MacKay. You can read the chat here. He intrigued me, so I read the series thinking I will pick my own book boyfriend. Let me tell you, I couldn’t pick. Soooo…. I invited the author 😀


Please welcome Mary Morgan!


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.

Do you have a nickname?
Yes. It’s Lori. My full name is Mary Lorine, so the nickname is a portion of my middle name.

What is one word best describes you?

What makes you laugh out loud?
Hearing my grandchildren play. Their playfulness and laughter is so infectious.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Roses. It invokes warm, spring days filled with love.
I love the pics you posted the other day, beautiful roses.

Favourite place to spend time in.
Near the woods by the ocean in Monterey.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
Crime thrillers. I have a difficult time reading them.

Writing! What started it?
I’ve started writing at a young age—from poems to plays. I constantly daydreamed, creating these imaginary worlds within my mind.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
History professor or archaeology.

Audiobooks! What started them?
So many readers had asked me. In addition, I love listening to stories on audio. If you have a good narrator, he/she can transport you within the pages of the book.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
Most definitely! I believe anyone can seek redemption, if they truly want to be redeemed. I also believe in the healing power of true love.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
For anyone who wants to escape into another world—filled with history, mythology, and true love. Stories that will sweep you across time to the Highlands of Scotland and the shores of Ireland. Where warriors will fight for redemption and the women they love.

What is next in your writing?
I’ve just finished writing the fifth and final Dragon Knight’s story, so I’m keeping fingers crossed it will be out late summer. Currently, I’m working on a Christmas short story with one of the characters from the Dragon Knights series. I’ll share more in the next few months. Afterwards, a brand new series with the Fenian Warriors.

OOOOH! Fenian Warriors you say? I like the sound of that.
Thank you Mary for coming for a chat and putting up with my indecision in choosing my book boyfriend. You make it really hard, you know. I love them all. I am looking forward to reading more.

Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you enjoyed the chat, I most surely did. I would like to thank Liz for sharing Alistair with us and Ms. Morgan for dreaming him up for us to enjoy. I am looking forward to reading his story.

DragonKnightsAxe_w9181_750Alastair MacKay hails from DRAGON KNIGHT’S AXE, book 3 in the Order of the Dragon Knights series by Mary Morgan.

Battled scarred, Dragon Knight, Alastair MacKay, has fled to the seas to separate himself from his powers that are connected to the land. Yet, when he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland, he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and leading him on a journey to confront his greatest fears.

Research assistant, Fiona O’Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time. She soon discovers a Dragon Knight’s relic has been entrusted into her care. Determined to return the artifact to the Great Glen, Fiona is unprepared for the danger ahead—losing her heart and soul to Alastair “Beast” MacKay.

Will their love be strong enough to soothe the beast and heal the man? Or will Death swing its axe, leaving them lost for all eternity?

He would get the truth out of her. She was now his. Bought and paid for.

His anger simmered just below the surface, and he allowed his eyes to flash with the fire of the dragon. Hearing her gasp, he smiled. Good, little bird. Fear me. Without giving her time to react, he swept her up and dumped her over his left shoulder, and strode to the ship.

He heard her sharp intake of breath, and then she started to pound against his back. “Put…me down,” she demanded.


She started to kick, and he clenched his jaw in frustration. The little bird had talons. He responded with a smack to her bottom, but instead of removing his hand, he kept it against her soft curves. “I will put ye down when we are on my ship.”

She went completely still, and then she screamed.

Alastair dumped her onto the ground. “For the love of Brigid, did ye have to yell into my ear?”

Fiona rubbed at her bottom and then stood. “You beast,” she spat out at him. Jumping onto a nearby boulder, she looked directly into his eyes. “Don’t you ever touch me like that again.”

Alastair yanked her to his chest by her arms, his face mere inches from hers. “And what are ye going to do?” He watched as her eyes widened in alarm. Blue eyes that reminded him of the sky on warm summer days. Then his gaze traveled down to her lips, red as berries.

Instantly, his beast roared to life. Claim one kiss, Alastair.

“I will slit your throat,” she whispered.

Releasing his hold, his beast laughed, mocking him. He stared at her for a few moments before turning away. Stalking over to the ship, he climbed up the ladder.

Author Bio

I am a constant daydreamer and have been told quite often to remove my head from the clouds. Yet, this is where I find the magic to write my stories. Not only do I love to weave a good tale, but I have a voracious appetite for reading. I worked for Borders Books for almost fourteen years. Imagine my delight to be surrounded by so many books, talking to others about them, and getting paid.

Pure bliss!

I have traveled to England, Scotland, Ireland, and France. There are those who know me well when I say, “My heart is in the Highlands.” I believe I have left it there or maybe in Ireland.

When not writing, I enjoy playing in my garden—another place where magic grows. Of course, there is time spent with my family. They are the ones that keep me grounded.

To start you on the journey into her book world, Ms. Morgan has graciously giving away Alastair’s story, 1 signed book for the US and 1 ebook for international.

The 2 lucky readers will be chosen by Sexy Mr. Random from the comments after 3pm EST Monday, November 2, 2015. GOOD LUCK!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
