Regina Talbot-Jones has always known her rambling family home was haunted. She also knows her brother has invited one of his friends to attend an ill-conceived séance. She didn't count on that friend being so handsome...and she certainly didn't expect him to be a dragon.
Scottish Highlander Colin MacAlasdair has hidden his true nature for his entire life, but the moment he sets eyes on Regina, he knows he has to have her. In his hundreds of years, he's never met a woman who could understand him so thoroughly...or touch him so deeply. Bound by their mutual loneliness, drawn by the fire awakening inside of them, Colin and Regina must work together to defeat a vengeful spirit-and discover whether their growing love is powerful enough to defy convention.

Isabel Cooper weaves a vividly described tale.
She has all the components for my perfect read but the heart of the story was lost on me. I enjoyed it, thought it was interesting but never connected or became invested in its outcome. I also needed a little more dragon in this dragon story, sadly Colin remains mostly human throughout.
I received this ARC copy of The Highland Dragon's Lady from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchanged for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 2, 2014.
