An eleventh-century lass with a stubborn streak unleashes the red-hot hero inside her modern lover in bestselling author Janet Chapman’s irresistible new Midnight Bay adventure.

Trace Huntsman’s peaceful life has headed to hell in a hand-basket ever since stunningly beautiful Fiona Gregor moved into the vacant apartment above his house. Kidnapped centuries earlier and transformed into a red-tail hawk, Fiona is human once more and must learn how to be a modern woman. But damned if Trace is going to be the one to teach her. Not when her mere presence ignites a fiery passion deep within his cautious heart.

Fiona longs to overcome the painful memories of her tragic past—to let down her guard and become a mother again. But so far her handsome landlord is not exactly thrilled with the stray animals—and suitors—that keep following her home. When the wizard Maximilian Oceanus shows up, Trace reaches the end of his rope. Weird things happen when Mac is around—raging storms, snarling demons—but this time, Midnight Bay is at the center of a fierce battle, and Fiona is the primary target. Only Trace can save her, but first, the lovers must set aside their fears...and open up their hearts.

Fiona is trying to adjust to her new life in the 21st century as a single, independent woman. With some pushing from her brothers, she gets her own apartment, living above Trace's house.

This is book three in the series, and I read book two and fell in love with these characters, with this town. So of course I had to continue forward with book three. I loved both Fiona and Trace in the previous book and was excited to see them get their own story. Although Trace tries to fight it, he can't help but to be attracted to Fiona. But with Fiona's horrible past and fear of men, he tries to keep his distance. But Trace seems to be one of the few men she isn't afraid of.

The storyline pulled me in from page one. I had already formed a connection with the characters reading the previous book, but even if I hadn't I would have been drawn in with this one. Chapman writes strong, likable characters that feel like like family.

One of those secondary characters that you can't help but love is Mac. He piqued my interest in book two, and I fell in love with him in book three. He may hold all this magical power, but he's just as vulnerable as the rest of us. I really hope Mac gets his happily ever after.
