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.

Chapman follows February's Dragon Warrior with a romantic, funny, quietly intense story of wounded survivors reluctantly finding love. Fiona Gregor spent most of 1,000 years as a red-tail hawk, helping her brother heal souls. When she returns to human form, she fears men but needs a place to stay. Against his better judgment, Trace Huntsman, a friend of her brother's, agrees to let her move into his empty upstairs apartment. After a rough childhood and years of fighting in Afghanistan, all Trace wants is peace and quiet. The struggling lobsterman has no room in his heart for a beautiful but timid woman who collects strays and cleans like a zealot. By the time demons chase a powerful wizard into town, Trace and Fiona have gotten under each other's skin, sharing both humor and heat as Trace's quiet competence and dry wit give Fiona the space to regain her innate strength.
