A sister's ultimate sacrifice… 

Leana blames herself for destroying her sisters' lives and for the death of their beloved mother. But one night, Leana finds a way to save her sisters. She disguises herself as a mortal woman, hiding from the world of magic and her greatest enemy, Queen Snowdrop, the queen of the Unseelies. 

A warrior's troubled soul… 

Kendrick is a broken man, dependent on ale to make the sorrow left behind by the loss of his wife bearable. He's vowed to never love again until his friend convinces Kendrick to hire a housemaid from the local tavern to take care of his home and children. Can he resist the desire the beautiful redheaded tavern maid has awakened? 

Two broken hearts become whole… 

Leana's heart is cold as ice, at least that's what she believes. Until Kendrick resurrects the passion Leana thought was long gone. What is it about the battered warrior that stirs her feelings? Will one kiss spark hope between Kendrick and Leana, or will they surrender to fear, denying their love, the very thing that could save the people they treasure most? 


Leana Keith is a Blood drinker trying to hide from the Snowdrop Queen of the unseelie court.  Hopefully taking over someone else's life will make the queen believe she is dead.  She is trying her hardest to keep her inner beast under control.  Can she live as a human? 
Kendrick Fletcher lost his wife in childbirth five years ago and has never recovered.  Even the love he has for his children has not stopped him from the drinking to drown his sorrows.  His best friend is trying to persuade him that he and the children need a woman in their lives. 
Our characters will have more than a few scary moments when the truth comes to light. Who will save whom when the big battle comes?  This is the third book in the series and is probably better read in order.  I haven't read the previous books and still understood and enjoyed this one.  It would spoil the others if you read it before them. 


Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Sottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin. From her High School band to the annual Highland Games that took place right across the street from her childhood home, the bagpipes beckoned her toward her calling. It seemed only natural for Victoria Zak to want to write in the Scottish historical romance genre. Add to the fact, she was also a paranormal romance junkie, there was no doubt that her influences would be the driving force behind her stories.
Although, she never sought out a writing career, her desire for the written word grew the more she read. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn. The Guardians of Scotland series continues this winter with Highland Storm.
Now, Victoria Zak lives in the sunshine state with her husband, two beautiful children, and three furry friends. Living in paradise, being a stay at home, and to be able to share her stories has been a blessing.
