A dragon shifter stirs and wakens in a cave beneath Inverness, deep in the Scottish Highlands. The cave's the same and his hoard intact, yet something's badly amiss. Determined to set whatever's gone wrong to rights, Lachlan Moncrieffe ventures above ground - and wishes he hadn't. His castle's gone, replaced by ungainly row houses. Men aren't wearing plaids, and women scarcely wear anything at all, particularly the woman who accosts him with unseemly banter. What manner of wench is she to dress so provocatively?
In Inverness for a year on a psychiatry fellowship, Dr. Maggie Hibbins watches an oddly dressed man pick his way out of a heather and gorse thicket. Even though it runs counter to her better judgment, she teases him about his strange attire. He looks so lost - and so unbelievably, knock-out gorgeous - she takes a chance and stands him a meal. Lachlan's shock when he picks up a local newspaper at a pub is so palpable, Maggie jumps in with both feet.
She knew something was off, but the hard-to-accept truth bashes gaping holes in her equilibrium. He looks odd, sounds odd, acts odd because he's a refugee from another era. Her half-baked seduction scheme takes a hike, but her carefully constructed life is still about to change forever. Born of powerful witches, Maggie runs headlong into the myth and magic that are her birthright.

I loved the story of how Maggie & Lachlan/Kelideen meet and grow to love each other. They are up against other immortals who don't want them together. They get help from some gods & Maggie's powerful grandmother.
Awesome story made more wonderful by Millers sexy voice reading it. Can't wait for book 3 to see what happens next.
I loved this story! It was even better than book 1 and I really enjoyed that one. Lachlan and Maggie's story hooked me from the very beginning. I loved the humorous asides from Lachlan about how a Scottish Lord would view the future. Maggie's natural and modern reticence to their instant and steamy connection made their relationship more believable. The narration was awesome. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this book. I cannot wait to listen to #3
Tell us about yourself!
Yeah I love modern day scottland dragon shifter and mage.
Under A spell Lachkan and Khelsdin have spent 329 years asleep. Lachlan is a man of magic that is joined to Khelsdin a dragon. By joining they should live for ever. How they are awake and this new world is not something they are prepared for.
Maggie came from a line of wiches but doesn't use magic. Maggie is a psychiatrist and when she meets Lachlan she knows he needs help. But the attraction they both well is strong.
I LOVE THIS STORY!
It's a must read for a dragon shifter fans!
In this book we get to meet Maggie a witch whose chosen not to learn her craft but has become a doctor instead. One day out for a walk she meets a strange man who looks ragged lost and speaks funny. Her caring nature means she helps the man out.
From here the story rolls on to an amazing read.
Let's just say there is a happy story line but also another that has us waiting to see what will happen.
Would I recommend this book YES
The Dragon and Mage , we met in book one, finally wake from their sleep 300 odd years after being ensconced in a cave.
The times and customs had changed. Luckily the first contact, Maggie, was astute enough to understand that she was encountering a time traveler. With her help, and her kinswomen, who were witches, those that had entrapped the two were way laid and Maggie became more than a friend with the time Travellers.
An excellent story and portrayal by the narrator, in the audio form.
