Description

She wasn't looking to claim the heart of a dragon, but when this bluestocking goes toe-to-toe with a brooding, broken Highland warrior, she'll find just how easy it is for him to make her burn.
In Victorian England, gossip is often as precious as gold. But the Highlanders are a more mysterious bunch-and if anyone found out what 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. 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 twisted monster, Mina will come to see a man in love is more powerful and determined than any dragon.
