The steamy second book in Janet Chapman’s dazzling Midnight Bay series seduces readers with an enticing tale of a fiery independent woman and an irresistible immortal warrior with a dragon’s courageous heart.
Maddy Kimble has no time for a suitor—not with caring for her spunky nursing home patients, her shy nine-year-old daughter, her widowed mother, and her rebellious teenage brother. William Kilkenny’s stunning lack of modern dating protocol doesn’t help. The man is uncouth and outrageous—a towering, drop-dead, breathtakingly hot warrior. Who refuses to give up.
William is secretly a ninth-century Irish nobleman formerly trapped in a dragon’s body. All Maddy knows is that lately, she can hardly resist the urge to lose herself in his powerful arms. But as their uncontrollable passion grows, eerie occurrences in her small coastal Maine town begin to rouse Maddy’s suspicions about her lover. He begs her to trust him, but how can she surrender—body and soul—when she fears the danger he poses to her yearning heart?
Chapman continues the Midnight Bay series with the charming romance of William Killkenny, a 1,200-year-old former dragon whose humanity was restored in 2009's Moonlight Warrior, and Maddy Kimble, a nurse who's raising her troubled younger brother as well as her nine-year-old daughter. William's efforts to woo Maddy fall flat until he seeks advice from her elderly patients. After he displays his kindness to her patients and daughter, she realizes he's not entirely an arrogant he-man. But the divorced Maddy fears giving her locked-away heart to a man with secrets, while William fears he has no heart at all and is distracted by protecting Maddy from magical danger. Chapman infuses her story with great humor, and subplots involving Maddy's relatives and a dying patient provide necessary depth.

I am an avid romance novel reader and Janet Chapman is one of my favorites. While there nothing new under the sun where romance novels are concerned -- Ms. Chapmans weaves a tale with Dragon Warrior that allows you to escape into a world full of magic and romance! I have NEVER been disappointed when I read a Janet Chapman book and it you love fantastical stories then this book is a it. This is how a fairytale should read!
1 caution... If you have never read any of Ms Chapman's work I suggest reading the original highlander book Charming a Highlander, then Winter's story in Only a Highlander, followed by Moonlight Warrior, with Dragon Warrior last. This way you get all the background info carried into this book.
Dragon Warrior is book two in a spin-off from the Highlader Series.
Dragon Warrior is a great read all by itself, but just like any good entre -- each side is tasty alone but the combination is what makes the meal satisfying. Enjoy!
Well Worth The Time!
I read about anything I can get my hands on, and this book was very entertaining. I would not only recommend this book, but also this author....
