Midnight Bay, Maine
Since her divorce, Nurse Madeline Kimble had to move back in with her widowed mother and younger teenage brother. Her 9 year old daughter, Sarah, keeps Maddy busy as does her full time job at River Run Nursing Home. Unlike her philandering ex-husband, Maddy doesn’t have the luxury to go out looking for love. So love comes looking for her in the form of one very badass sexy “caveman” William Killkenny!
William Killkenny’s first appearance in Midnight Bay was under the strangest of circumstances. After weeks of rumors and strange sightings of a bizarre creature living in the surrounding woods, which was described as everything from a moose, to the boogeyman, to a dragon; the beast is seen flying into the local library carrying Eve Gregor’s elderly mother Mabel. Then a blinding white light hits the building, and out comes a very large, naked man with Mabel. He boldly struts right up to Maddy grabs her and plants a soul burning, melt your bones kiss on her! Now the arrogant Irishman has cleaned up his “caveman” appearance, with a little help from Maddy’s patients at the home, and is drop-dead gorgeous! Until William can convince Maddy of the “magic” he must keep his secret from her, but Maddy has secrets too. Then an evil force starts plaguing Midnight Bay coinciding with the appearance of a strange seal pup that some say turns into a mermaid. Can Maddy “see” William for who he really is, and open her heart to a Dragon Warrior?
Janet Chapman spreads the magic again in her latest Dragon Warrior. After William Killkenny’s introduction in the previous book, Moonlight Warrior, we have been rooting for this medieval Irishman to claim the boisterous Maddy. I loved the hilarious and emotional subplots involving Maddy’s charges in the nursing home. Dragon Warrior is a five rose, heart pounding read from the first page to the last!
