Night of the Highland Dragon by Isabel Cooper

Narrated by Derek Perkins Even though I was very disappointed in the previous book in this series of historical paranormals (The Highland Dragon’s Lady), I remembered reading the print version of Night of the Highland Dragon a couple of years back, and thought I’d give it another go-round in audio.
