Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight, flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona that he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic - taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and 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?

I love time travel romances, so Mary Morgan was perfect for me! Dragon Knight's Axe is filled with magic, Dragon Knights, Fae, Druids, Highlanders!
I love it all! It's a nice blend of time travel and Scottish romance!
When Fiona falls asleep on an archeological dig, and awakens in another time, in the arms of Alastair MacKay, a mighty Dragon Knight!
I really enjoyed this beautiful fiction!
I truly loved Paul Woodson's voice. He is perfect with the Scottish accent! His voice kept me interested until the very end!
Love a good romance
Mary Morgan has gotten better with each book I have enjoyed all of them but I would say this is my favorite so far I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
I thought when I started this book that it would be the last but I was surprised to find there is another brother and will look forward to hearing the next.
I really enjoyed Paul Woodson have never heard him before but I really like him the best he did a great job with all the characters. When I listen to a book, I want the narrator to have enough inflection that it doesn't matter to me if he is doing a man or women voice that you don't loose your way in the story by listening to a narrator that may be good at men voices but not women or visa versa. He was great with both
Mary Morgan's story comes to life with the rich narration of her magical tale. From the first introduction of Alastair as he fights the stormy seas through the telling of a tale rich in the magic of the land, the beautiful tale of redemption will haunt the listener. Fiona is brave enough to stand up to the beast in Alastair. The journey from Ireland to Urquhart is brought to life with details that will make the listener believe that they are viewing the land with their own eyes. The story itself, that of a knight plagued by his sister's death and his own role in it, is brought to a stunning crescendo as he comes face to face with the great dragon. The struggle within his heart and his belief that he cannot be redeemed is tempered by his love of his lady, Fiona. Fiona's gift of talking with the animals is a beautiful counterpoint to Alastair's control of the land. This is a tale worth the listening. The lush descriptions bring depth to the story. And the beautiful lilting reading makes for an even greater delight.
I have read the book, but listening to the audio book made the experience so much better. Paul Woodson brought the characters to life for me, and made them feel real.
Alastair is my favorite 'Dragon Knight' thus far, but in this book I have to say that Fiona was my favorite character. She is a strong woman, if not a tad stubborn. She speaks her mind, but does not harp or complain about the situation she finds her self in. She is a smart woman. I also love when a heroine knows her mind, and does not play cat and mouse games throughout the story.
Paul Woodson did a great job narrating Dragon Knight's Axe. He read with just the right amount of intensity throughout the story. When listening to an audio book the way a male narrator does the female parts will make or break the audio book for me. I listened to the whole book, so that means he did a wonderful job. There were a few (very few) parts where I feel that he overly did it, but it was nothing that ruined listening to the story for me. I have listened to books Paul has narrated in the past, and enjoyed them all.
I would have loved to listen to it all in on sitting, but that was not possible. I had to pause it (reluctantly) a few times over the three days that it took me to finish it.
If you enjoy time travel romance, set it Medieval Scotland, feisty heroines, mixed with a little magic, with a stubborn but a redeemable male hero, then you will love Mary Morgans, Dragon Knight's. Alastair McKay will steal your heart, and have you cheering for him right up til the very end.

I loved how the internal struggle that Alistair had played out with such intensity that he had to truly be broken before he could heal and that Fiona couldn't truly love him until he loved himself.
The love story and how it showed that there is always a road to redemption if you truly want to find forgiveness.
No this is the first one I've listened to but definitely won't be the last. He is magnificient.
Yes it was the moment where Alistair destroyed his Axe.
I really liked Paul Woodson as narrator!! This story was very captivating and had some depth which many romances do not. There were lots of very sexy (Hot) moments, danger, and suspense!!
