Early Review: Legend of the Highland Dragon - Isabel Cooper

The MacAlasdairs are not like other men. 

Descendants of an ancient alliance, they live for centuries, shifting between human and dragon forms. Some wander the earth; some keep to their lands in Scotland. And Stephen MacAlasdair, the newest lord of the family, must go to London to settle his father’s business affairs. He brings an object of great power and greater darkness. He finds an enemy from his past, whose wrath is still living and deadly. And he meets an ally he’d never have expected.

1894 London, doesn't provide an easy life for women of the lower class, but Mina Seymour has managed to work herself up to a position as the secretary of a famous scholar. When a tall, dark Scottish stranger demands to see her employer, Mina is irritated; when MacAlasdair's departure leaves the professor worried, she’s suspicious. Determined to figure out the situation, she investigates further - and finds a world and a man she could never have imagined.

My thoughts:
Dragons and evil things afoot. Stephen is a dragon, seems there are a few "people" around who can shift into dragons in this world. And this one hails from Scotland ;) I do like the sword and kilt and background, sadly nothing of that happens as the book takes place in London.

Anyway. Dragon meets guard dog and because of things I shall not say, Mina, the guard dog aka secretary for a professor comes to work for Stephen. Learns of his second nature and helps him with the issue at hand...those pesky evil things that are happening.

There is of course romance coming too as they are drawn to each other but know they should not act upon it. But they sure still do ;)

Conclusion:
Romance, danger and fights. Mysteries and legends. We also meet his brother at one time and I hope there is a book about him too.

I do like the cover on this one! For some reason I can't mix paranormal romance w/historical romance. I need to change that!
