With simple drag and dropping no, but there are several ways to obtain similar
You can for example create the selection as usual, then create a new layer and
fill the new layer (with selection still on) with the color of your choice.
Then change the blending mode of the upper layer to "color" or "hue"
(whichever gives the better effect)
Alternatively you can select the region and use the colorize plugin from the
