Highland Dragon Master
It's Braveheart meets Game of Thrones in this thrilling paranormal romance about the dragon lairds who battle for Scottish independence…and the fierce women who tame their hearts.
The war for Scottish independence rages on, but it's only a matter of time before England is victorious. Exhausted and battle-weary, Highland dragon Erik MacAlasdair will face unknown seas to seek an enemy stronghold and claim a power so great it could free his beloved homeland forever.
If only that kind of power didn't come with such a terrible price.
Daughter of a mortal woman and an ancient dragon, Toinette has never forgotten the proud Highland master who once stole her young heart. She vows she'll gladly fight at his side. But when dark forces leave them stranded on a cursed island, it will take everything they have to defy their fate…and trust the passion that burns within the heart of every dragon.
Cooper fails to deliver on the excitement of her premise in the third Dawn of the Highland Dragon medieval paranormal adventure romance (after Highland Dragon Rebel). Dragon warrior Erik MacAlasdair sets sail on the Hawk for an uncharted island to locate a mythical Templar magic that might even the odds in Scotland's losing fight for independence. Toinette, a half-dragon who came of age in the care of his extended family, captains the Hawk, which nearly capsizes in a storm that forces the shape-shifters to reveal their identities before they tow the ship to a nearby island. Coincidentally, it is the very island Eric seeks, but evil magic hampers reconnaissance efforts and repairs to the ship. Meanwhile, old feelings between Toinette and Erik flare back to life in scenes that are sexy but not especially romantic. Cooper illustrates paranormal elements well, but the island's menaces don't generate much excitement. She does take good advantage of her medieval setting and the Templars' demise, but only series fans will get much out of the story.
