New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant brings you another sizzling Dark Kings novella.

Born to rule the skies as a Dragon King with power and magic, Cináed hides his true identity in the mountains of Scotland with the rest of his brethren. But there is no respite for them as they protect the planet and the human occupants from threats. However, a new, more dangerous enemy has targeted the Kings. One that will stop at nothing until dragons are gone forever. But Cináed discovers a woman from a powerful, ancient Druid bloodline who might have a connection to this new foe.

Solitude is sanctuary for Gemma. Her young life was upended one stormy night when her family disappears, leaving her utterly alone. She learned to depend solely on herself from then on. But no matter where she goes she feels…lost. As if she missed the path she was supposed to take. Everything changes when she backs into the most dangerously seductive man she’s ever laid eyes. Gemma surrenders to the all-consuming attraction and the wild, impossible love that could destroy them both – and finds her path amid magic and dragons.


“There is much about this world you doona know,” Cináed cautioned.
“Like what?” she asked, her head cocked to the side.
He briefly thought about telling her the truth about himself. Would she throw him out of her house and tell him he was crazy? Or would she believe him?
Cináed shook his head. “There are many unexplainable things.”
“Are you talking aliens?” She sat back, pulling her hands from his. “I’ve watched enough Ancient Aliens to get where some people claim they’ve been here, and I’m not obtuse or ignorant to believe that we’re the only beings in the universe. However, I don’t think there are aliens among us.”
He missed the feel of her immediately, but he didn’t reach for her hand again. “Let me get this straight. You believe aliens are out there, but that they wouldna come here?”
“Precisely,” she said with a nod. “Why would they want to come here? Look at us. As a species we’re not exactly welcoming or willing to share. I believe they’re steering clear of us.”
“What about magic?”
She blinked at him. “You mean like magicians and stuff?”
“Some people claim they’re Druids who can see into the future.”
Gemma shook her head, but then she halted, a deep frown filling her brow. “Druids?”
Cináed studied her face. The word had struck something in her memories. He was sure of it. “That’s right. They’ve been part of this continent for hundreds of years.”
“My mother used to tell me a story about Druids.” Gemma rose and put her hands on either side of her head. “How could I have forgotten something like that?”
He slowly got to his feet. “Do you happen to remember the story?”
Her arms dropped to her sides. Her eyes might be focused on him, but her mind was a million miles away. “There was something about a brother and sister. Kyle used to make fun of how much I loved the story. I would make Mum tell it to me every night.”
“Was it from a book?”
Gemma blinked and came back to the present. “No, there wasn’t a book. At least not one that I knew.”
“How did the Druids fit in?”
“The siblings were Druids.”
Cináed nodded. “We need to get to the isle as soon as possible.”
“If you’re up for it.”
She shrugged. “What’s a few hours? Now or in the morning?”
“How soon can you pack?”
Gemma took a step back. “Pack?”
“In case we have to stay overnight somewhere.”
Her chest heaved, and he could see that she was debating on whether to go now that there was a chance they would stay on the isle. Then she blew out a breath.
“Give me fifteen minutes,” she told him.
