Although a prolonged period where the leads feel attraction to each other only in spite of distrust, and even suspicion that the other might be behind the terrible things happening, is not my favorite sort of relationship conflict, the gradual growth of feelings was well-drawn. I liked the way the story ended, on the personal basis, though it's not completely settled whether anyone else in London was involved with the perpetrator[s]. I'm not sure whether Ms. Cooper plans more in the series, now that the siblings have each had their happy ending, but it would be interesting to see the evolution of the MacAlasdairs' interactions with the villagers and especially with D Branch, now that some secrets are less secret. Given the changing, modernizing world they're living in, seeing the next generation might be even better — Simon already has a little girl, and she surely won't be the only one. I notice in the list of the author's books that there is another part of the Highland Dragon saga already, but it's BACK in time, rather than forward. We'll see.
Set in 19th century Scotland, hero William Arundel is a special agent of the Crown sent to discover information about a rather grisly murder. Will belongs to an elite group of people who research strange phenomena (think early paranormal (FX type researchers) and there is certainly something strange happening in the small Scottish town that has a castle with a beautiful woman who never seems to age.
Lady Judith MacAlisdair is protective of her people and privacy and she is very suspicious of Will. He asks too many questions. The two find themselves in a quandary, both are fiercely attracted to each other but each harbors secrets about their identity.
There are some strange goings on and Will and Judith find themselves moving from a distrustful relationship to one that becomes romantic. Judith realizes she needs Will in many ways and even though at first she is frosty and distant, she becomes softer and willing to share her burdens with Will which are many. Will finds himself falling for someone who is so much more than she seems.
There’s plenty of action in this novel. Both leads are heroic and the tension between the leads is good. Night of the Highland Dragon is a fine novel with a plot that is unique.
