He Guards a Ferocious Secret
In Victorian England, gossip is often as precious as gold. But the Highlanders are a more mysterious bunch. And if anyone found out that Stephen MacAlasdair really was, he'd be hunted down, murdered, his clan wiped out. As he's called to London on business, he'll have to be extra vigilant--especially between sunset and the appearance of the first evening star.
Mina just wanted to find out more about the arrogant man who showed up in her employer's office. Some might say it was part of her job. She never thought the stranger would turn into a dragon right in front of her. Or that he'd then offer her an outrageous sum of money to serve as his personal secretary. Working together night and day to track a dangerous enemy, Mina comes to see a man in love is more powerful and determined than any dragon.

Cooper (Lessons After Dark) populates her Victorian England series launch with supernatural entities, sending a secretary from London’s East End on an adventure that blends magic, history, horror, and sleuthing. Mina Seymour, who has pulled herself out of poverty by working as a scholar’s secretary, is concerned when Lord Stephen MacAlasdair visits her employer and leaves him visibly distressed. Visiting Stephen’s house to check up on him, she’s attacked by demons and rescued by Stephen—who is a shape-shifting dragon. Stephen, impressed with Mina’s cool-under-pressure attitude, enlists her help to defeat an evil sorcerer. The plot combines a cross-class romance with a mystical quest, neatly twining discussions of class differences with descriptions of magic. The relationship builds naturally and heatedly, but the abrupt ending will leave readers longing for an epilogue or a chance to revisit these characters in future books. (Dec.)
