Author Janet Chapman, Dragon Warrior and a Giveaway

From the New York Times and USA Today best selling author of Moonlight Warrior…DRAGON WARRIOR by Janet Chapman


Book Description:

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…Chapman infuses her story with great humor.” —Publishers Weekly

From Janet’s Website:



I know. I know. It’s been a very long wait for William and Maddy’s story, and you have all been so very patient. Thank you for that. But due to scheduling problems, Dragon Warrior’s release date has been pushed back a wee bit to January 25, 2011. (Yes, I know; that seems like forever, but I promise it will be worth the wait! I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun with two people. William is … well, William. And Maddy is just the woman to match him, in allways … if you catch my drift.

Then, come the end of June 2011, Mystical Warrior comes out. In book three of my Midnight Bay Series you’ll get to meet Trace Huntsman and Fiona Gregor (Matt and Kenzie’s 11th century sister, not baby Fiona from A Highlander Christmas). And you will also meet Maximilian Oceanus, a brand new magic-maker. Oh boy, are you going to love Mac; only instead of being a drùidh, the man is one big, scary, powerful wizard!


USA Residents ONLY – For a chance to win a copy of Dragon Warrior tell us here why you would like to win a copy of the book.  Don’t forget to leave your email address.  Winner will be announced March 1st.

Hello : ) I love the sound of the "Midnight Bay" series! If I won a copy of "Dragon Warrior", then I would order the first and third books so that I could read them in order. Also, how could anyone resist getting to know a ninth-century Irish nobleman who is also "an irresistible immortal warrior with a dragon’s courageous heart"! Sounds too good to resist ; )
