Will Love’s Flame Quench the Dragon’s Fire? …
The past never stays in the past, it rears its ugly head eventually. James the Black Douglas knows this all too well. With a past that has left him vengeful and his dragon blood thirsty, his reputation as a ruthless warrior haunts his enemies in their sleep. As his allegiance stands with Robert Bruce, the King of Scotland, he must now repay a debt to the king and agrees to marry his daughter, Abigale Bruce. The problem is he doesn’t want a wife. When flames start to burn out of control between him and the auburn-haired lass, he must decide to either kindle the flames of passion or shelter her from the truth and set her free.
It’s What Shines in the Dark That Brings Forth Your True Light…
Determined to keep his daughter safe and out of the hands of the English, Robert hides Abigale behind the safe walls of a nunnery. After eight long years of living her life in seclusion, Abigale is finally set free. But her new found freedom comes to an abrupt halt when she learns of her betrothal to the infamous Bogeyman – James the Black Douglas. She soon finds herself falling in love with the uncontainable and haunted man. Is her love enough to soften his hardened heart?

Victoria Zak lives in the sunshine state with her husband, two beautiful children, and three furry friends. Before having kids, Victoria spent fifteen years in the veterinary business and volunteered in pet rescue.
“One of my most rewarding jobs was finding unwanted animals their forever homes.” A writing career was the last item listed on her bucket list, until she discovered that she wanted to put her stories on paper and breathe life into her characters. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn.
“Fourteenth century Scotland was a fascinating time in history. Not only was Scotland fighting for their freedom from the English king, their own people fought each other; clan vs clan. Though being a woman of the twenty-first century, I wouldn’t want to live in those unsettled times. But writing historical fiction paranormal romance allows me to escape into their world and breathe a fresh air of romance and magic into that era, which I love to do.”

What is your favorite part of the story, Highland Burn?
I love the Highlanders bantering back and forth, the lasses friendship with one another, and I love the medieval Scotland setting, but Fergus took me by surprise. His character, a white stallion warhorse, just popped off the page.
How long did it take you to write Highland Burn?
Highland Burn too me six months to write, revise, and edit.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Since my Highlanders are dragon shifters, I would have to say any of the seven Dragonkine would do. They’re resourceful, strong, sexy, and did I mention they’re Highlander dragon shifters.
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
I really loved Abigale’s character. She’s strong, independent, yet there’s a genuine kindness to her. If you had a secret, she would be the one that would keep it.
What inspired you to write your first book?
My love for reading inspired me to want to write my own stories. I didn’t set out to seek a writing career; it found me. When I was younger, I was the girl who hated to read. It wasn’t until I challenged myself to read a novel that I found I enjoyed reading and wanted to write my own stories.
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Yes. I’m gearing up to write book 2 in the Guardians of Scotland series, Highland Storm. It will be Conall and Effie’s story.
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you so much for having me on your blog. xoxo
