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.

Trace understands love, but doesn't believe himself worthy enough to reach for it himself, until he sees the courage in Fiona and how they can help each other release the past and...
This started off as another great adventure in Midnight Bay but past all the action and mysterious forces that haunted the shores the romance fizzled for me. I'd have to give it a 3.5, started a strong 4, but I didn't feel the Fiona and Trace love or even attraction that our lead characters usually ...
Enjoyable paranormal story with exciting action that had its funny moments but I think the otherworldly aspects overshadowed the romance and the main characters resisted relationship too much. Fiona who was once a hawk, moves into apartment above Trace's house.
Trace is not a man looking for love. In fact, a woman in his life is the last thing he wants. But his friend Kenzie has somehow maneuvered his sister Fiona into Trace's garage apartment.Fiona is from the 11th century. She was raped as a young woman and went on to spend time as a whore in the warrio...
