Acclaimed author Isabel Cooper’s thrilling paranormal romance series continues with a sexy Highland dragon shapeshifter and an inquisitive hero…
William Arundell is a detective working for a secret branch of the English government. When a young man is found dead, William’s investigation leads him to a remote Highland village and the intoxicatingly beautiful lady who rules MacAlasdair Castle.
The charismatic Judith MacAlasdair is not what William expected. The only daughter in a long line of shape-changing dragons, Judith is wary of William and his unrelenting questions. However, when William’s investigation takes an interesting turn, they must put aside years of bad blood and a mutual distrust of outsiders to band together to save the British Islands from its deadliest foe…
William and Judith will have to put aside their differences and band together to save the British Islands from its deadliest foe in this riveting paranormal romance. The author has created a fascinating world with dragons and magic with an interesting feel to it, while the story is definitely historical with just the right amount of Scottish dialogue to add to the Highland feel without going overboard, it also has a kind of slight steampunk feel to the story, probably because of William’s magical gadgets. I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning and found it quite enjoyable but I am still a little unclear on just what the bad guys wanted Judith for…other than they were up to no good of course.

Sourcebooks Casablanca, June 2 2015, 352 pages, ebook & print
I'm a geeky Boston girl, who started writing when I was 12—mostly so that I would have something to do in math class other than math. Didn't work out well for either the story or the long division skills. Over the years, my writing's improved in ways beyond “not being in four-color pen”, to the point where Sourcebooks published No Proper Lady, my first romance novel, in September 2011. Two sequels are coming soon!
The long division, on the other hand, still eludes me.
I like exploring weird combinations of history, fantasy, romance, and (very very soft) science fiction. I have often been known to say that I come up with plots the way some people come up with cocktails: hopefully the next morning is better, though.
Oh, two of the four colors in that pen? Hot pink and turquoise. We were living in California at the time, and it was the early nineties, so I can't entirely hold myself responsible for that one.
