Review: Legend of the Highland Dragon
Legend of the Highland Dragon by Isabel Cooper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
To be honest, I'm not usually a fan of historical paranormal romance, but since I was on a dragon kick, I figured I'd check this one out as a change from my typical reads. This was a fun little story that was a mix of romance, paranormal, and mystery. There's lots of magic and strong female characters, along with a good start to a few dragon book follow-ups.
Mina begins the book as a tough little secretary to an aging professor. One day, Stephen MacAlasdair walks into the office and turns her life upside down. Drawn into his mysterious conversation, she ends up ultimately working for him and living in his house. While I'm used to a more contemporary romance that has a few hot scenes leading up to some sort of culmination, this was certainly a book with "propriety of the times" in mind. Mina certainly can hold her own, and there is a lot of feminism that pops up along the way.
All in all, this was an interesting read, especially for the historical romance fans out there.
