The resolute courage and will of a young woman’s human spirit stands strong in spite of obstacles. With the release of her newly published novel, Dragon’s Blood, author Virginia Lee epitomizes the indomitable power of Lady Leigha Clairemont’s spirit throughout her epic journey.
The Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 Scotland casts its great shadow over the land, irrevocably changing the course of Lady Leigha Clairemont’s young life when her home is attacked and her father, a known Jacobite, is killed by invading English soldiers. Taken captive by the commander, Captain Simon Montieth, she escapes and leaves the man for dead, a man who will not stay down. Thus begins her journey that takes her from war-torn Scotland into the Mediterranean and then on to the slave markets of Constantinople. Her heart is tossed and torn between the love and desires of three men. Despite the adversities and heartbreaks, she overcomes the winds of fate and the wills of men, maturing from her innocent youth into a courageous, beautiful woman who stands free and strong at last.
Dragon’s Blood is one riveting read of love and adventure that takes readers back to the past and to different corners of the world to depict the potent character of a woman who is determined to evolve with her faith and hope intact, no matter what fate creates for her.
