Summary

Passion, hope, and forbidden desire.... 

Holly Jennings wasn’t planning on another trip to Scotland. And she certainly wasn’t planning on a trip down memory lane with the hot Highlander who broke her heart. But she’s never been much of a planner - more like a roll-with-the punches country gal. A good thing, too, because “one last request” may not be the only thing a beloved mentor left her in his will. Before Holly knows it, she’s heading on a mysterious mission to a remote island - and straight into danger. 

Dragon shifter Lachlan McKenney likes his life logical and organized - not turned upside down by the lithe, impulsive beauty he’s been trying to forget for years. Especially now that he’s busy guarding a ruthless archenemy who’s plotting to escape an island prison. 

But Holly awakens every emotion Lachlan has been trained to resist: passion, hope, and forbidden desire. Apparently, there’s no outrunning fate, just as there’s no shirking duty. Against the odds, Lachlan must keep Holly safe on her mission to carry out a venerable old dragon’s last wishes. At the same time, he must resist temptation, because letting his focus slip could cost Holly her life - and unleash a deadly foe. 

Danger lurks over Europe, where a ruthless dragon clan plots to seize power in the grandest, most glamorous cities. The guardians of old have summoned a new generation of shifter heroes to protect the castles, cathedrals, and cobblestoned streets of their ancestral homes - and to seek out the last of the Fire Maidens, women coveted by the dark lords for their royal blood. Those women are absolutely off-limits to the young warriors tasked with protecting them. But destiny, of course, has other ideas....

Anna Lowe’s Fire Maidens: Billionaires & Bodyguards series: a series of sizzling paranormal romances with adult content. Each story is packed with action, emotion, and romance! No cliff-hangers. If you like smoldering-hot shape-shifters, military heroes, and royal intrigue, you'll love these books. Join these strong heroines and their alpha heroes in atmospheric locales filled with danger and suspense!

Absolutely loved

Book 6 in Billionaire and Bodyguards series Fire Maiden: Scotland by Anna Lowe. Lachlan is a dragon shifter and a previous member of the French foreign legion where he had met previous characters that had met and mated other fire maiden. Holly is a dragon shifter from America that became friends with Scottish royal dragon that died and asks Lachlan and holly to do his final wishes. I love that this book both main characters previously knew each other and have history already but also the main female character is already a shifter and has knowledge of the shifter world, about shifter council and fire maidens. Holly doesn’t know that she is a fire maiden and the story develops beautifully into it especially with her and Lachlan fulfilling her friends wishes. Would love to read more about the emotional unicorn Penelope, hopefully it’ll be soon. Absolutely awesome narration but the massively talented Kelsey Osborne. Like other book in series she doesn’t do much with the very different accents with I’m very thankful for. Instead of doing a awful Scottish accent she keep her own accent and changes her tone for each character which she does a lovely job. Can not wait for next in series.

Lachlan and Holly

Lachlan and Holly
I loved Lachlan's story! It's different from the earlier books in this series because he and Holly already know each other having met ten years ago. They are both dragon shifters who are now getting a second chance to be together. The last time they were together they had one incredible night together but Lachlan chose his military duties over his love for Holly and broke her heart in the process. Ten years have passed and now they are in each other's company again on a journey around Scotland to fulfil the last request of a deceased friend, Trevor Holly's mentor.

There is so much going on in this story, as you would expect from Anna Lowe if you read or listened to Fire Maidens Ireland you will remember that a dangerous enemy was captured. He was then imprisoned on a private Scottish Island being guarded by a mixed team of shifters which means we can again meet up with characters from previous books.

Whilst Holly and Lachlan strive to fulfil Trevor's final requests they are forced to spend time together which gives them another chance to accept their destiny.


I'm not going to tell you any more because of spoilers, the story is far too go to spoil. If you haven't listened to or read the earlier books you could still enjoy this one but I would recommend that you listen to the books in order to get the most enjoyment from them.

The narration is again performed by the incredibly talented Kelsey Osborne who again gives life to the characters.

A passing, a will, and Return of the b###h.

Wow, OK I think Holly is my favourite female lead character. She's carefree, free spirited and feisty to boot. If you love women with sass who can truly handle themselves, then you're in for a treat with this book. Lachlan is a wonderful character, the stubborn duty driven hard headed male who has a hidden side. Then there's Tony, I love this character, who will be the main character in the next book. The storyline was really exciting, and some loose ends got tied up in this book. The plot had several surprises, and some returning characters. It was good to see those characters again, honestly this series is absolutely fantastic. The narrator did yet another amazing job of delivering an emotional and fun loving book. Anne Lowe really did a fabulous job with this series, travelling to different locations around the world. Each book has such a beautiful setting, and the description is as good as being there yourself. This is a feature I loved most about this series.

Second chance for forbidden love

Fire Maidens: Scotland is the sixth book in the Billionaires and Bodyguards series. This book follows Holly and Lachlan’s story. Years before, Lachlan broke Holly’s heart, and they are thrown back together when Holly is asked to carry out her mentor Trevor’s last request. But things are never that simple. The story has a slower start than others in the series, but I felt that, to tie up the loose ends, the ending was a bit rushed.
This was an enjoyable listen. As always, there is the danger, excitement and steam that’s always present in Anna Lowe’s books, and the narration was excellent.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, and I'm leaving a voluntary review.

Oooh Lachlan.

Lachlan’s story was one I was waiting for, right from the beginning he intrigued me, always there on the periphery. I like the fact the two main characters already knew each other but it took a tragedy to bring them back to into the same room, if I say anymore I will give the story away so take a listen.
As usual fantastic narration from Kelsey Osborne.

Fire maiden Scotland truly one of the best

Anna Lowe out did herself in this gripping story with an HEA. I was pleasantly surprised at the twist and turns this story took. Anna’s world is truly spectacular. It is worth getting in paperback, ebook and audible as I know I will read it more than once. The audible reader gets better and better with each story I hear from her.

Fire Maidens: Scotland – Holly and Lachlan

This was a great second chance romance! While listening to this book, I could not believe how quickly the time flew by because I was really into the story. Holly and Lachlan had a past and knew they were mates. Lachlan left for 10 years for duty (he was in the French Foreign Legion) and had plans for his life including becoming a Guardian. They meet again at the reading of Trevor’s (Holly’s mentor and Lachlan’s Godfather) will. When Holly (kind and free spirited) arrived late, she had diarrhea of the mouth explaining why she was late. It was so funny! Trevor wanted her to scatter his ashes in a couple of different places. Because of this, Lachlan, who was extremely focused and straight-laced, would accompany Holly. The rest of the will would not be read until she completed this task. Natasha was a real b!tch since she was Trevor’s only blood relative, she thought would get almost everything. This starts an adventure for Holly and Lachlan. They had a wonderful adventure together that eventually led to danger, suspense, romance, and a few surprises. There were a few villains from previous books. The female villain is especially nasty and I would not be surprised if we see more of her. I could just picture some of the beautiful scenery in this book. I like how Tony was introduced and I hope he finds love in his own book. He seems like a sharp one with his Armani suit and nice vehicle. Trevor’s dog, a deerhound, was also a nice addition and I love how Holly talked to him. This book had a beautiful ending. Kelsey Osborne did her usual great job with the narration. To me, she is definitely the voice of the series. I would highly recommend this book as well as the entire series. You will not be disappointed.

Fire Malians: Scotland

This book was great and the narrator was great. The book holds your interest from beginning to end I wish there was more to this storyline. I just hated to see it end.

Fire Maidens: Scotland

It seems like I waited so long for this release and as soon as it came out I just had to devour it. I am so pleased to say that once again, Anna and Kelsey blew this story out of the park! I absolutely loved everything from the sadness to the suspense then the action! And then we finally have our love and happy ending that makes my heart melt. A perfect listen to this series and now I must wait for Tony’ story, and I have to say I can’t wait!!

Fabulous Story! ❤️❤️❤️

Once again, I'm in love with the story created by Ms. Lowe. It has love, danger, dragon shifters, and Scotland. What else is needed? Lachlan and Holly were a lovely match. I enjoyed how they reconnected after being separated for so long. I love how Trevor's last request was integral to their reconnecting, not just in location, but in their hearts. Their love for him and his love for them was beautiful.

Narration was on point as usual.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of the audiobook. I also purchased the Kindle version.

Fire Maidens: Scotland

Fire Maidens Scotland is book six in the Billionaires and Bodyguards series and it features Holly and Lachlan. This story is a different situation from the other books in the series in that Holly is a known dragon shifter and is well aware of her capabilities.

Holly is once again in Scotland, one of her favorite places, although not for a fun trip. She is there to spread ashes of her mentor, Trevor. But in order to do that, she has to be accompanied by her once loved, but lost, Lachlan. Neither are happy about it as they embark on a road trip doing Trevor's wishes spelled out in his last will. There are complications ahead!

This book has the right amount of intrigue, excitement, fun, and everything in between! I enjoyed how this second chance romance unfolded for Holly and Lachlan! Despite how things were left for these two, no amount of years has erased the hurt, nor the deep seeded love, they feel for one another. Fated mates for sure. I loved how the mystery unfolds as they complete Trevor's list of tasks! Holly and Lachlan were likeable characters and you could feel how bad Lachlan felt for leaving Holly so many years before. I am glad they were able to find their way back to each other-with a little bit of help from Trevor beyond the grave!! Mungo, Trevor's dog, also makes quite an impression! It also shows you how kind and caring Holly truly is down to her core! I love Kelsey Osborne's narration! She really has you feeling everything the author envisions you to feel with her words! Listen to the audiobook! You won't be disappointed!

This is a solid entry to the series and although I recommend reading all of the books in the series, this can certainly be read as a standalone. The next book takes us to Tony's story in Venice! I am very excited to read his romance!

Can a road trip bring them together?

I have no clue how Anna comes up with her stories, but once again I am amazed by it.

And old dragon has died, peacefully in his sleep, but his remains need to come home. Holly Jennings is bringing his remains home. Once there her presence is requested at the reading of his will and she is asked to honor a final request.

Lachland McKinney lives his life by order and by schedule and doesn't like anything to mess with it. He convinces himself he has no time for love though his dragon is pushing him to claim the go as you please Holly. He is tasked to guard Holly as the final task that Trevor asked for sends her right into their prison for Enzo Lombardi.

The pair had and amazing relationship 10 years ago that ended in one night of bliss then agonizing heartbreak as Lachland heads out to join the French Foreign Legion. Right off the bat, Holly interrupts his schedule first with bringing a dog, then wanting to stop at the roadside and pick some flowers. Will this pair be able to make their drastic differences come together, or will the trip end in heartbreak?

I say following this story will not leave you disappointed. While it is fine to read as a stand alone story, some of the characters from these series make an appearance so I recommend to read the series in full.

I did receive a free copy of this story, but as I said before I am just amazed by how well Anna Lowe has written it. Makes me feel like I was right there following them through their journey.
