mystical warrior by janet chapman 3rd book in midnight bay series

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..

Review: Janet chapman is one of the few time travel romance authors that are able to weave together a believable story. I love all her books and have read and own all her books published to date. 
I love Trace and Fiona . She is new to the century and comes across as docile and weak at first but she is anything but. She has the heart of a warrior and is fiercely independent. She is a true mother. nurturing and domestic. She organizes trace's shed for him which results in him knocking a compressor on himself. As result he is laid up for a few days and can not work. so Fiona takes care of him. his whole house is a pig sty so she cleans it. Trace would have never known that the kitchen was white . He thought it was the tan color it was in when he bought. You would think Trace was a slob until you found where he concentrated all his time and effort on. The room in the tunnels is plated in steel and lined with surveillance equipment so he can monitor the place when under attack by the souls searching for Kenzie.
Fiona wants to be a mother more than anything but husbands seem to be more trouble then are worth after watch Matt and winter and Kenzie and Eve. To her they seem to all bow to the men but that's not the case, that's just how it appears to make the men think they have won. Fiona is unaware of this so she wants to go about and have a baby with no husband as in this day and age they are unnecessary in some cases with IVF. She takes a job watching a man from towns children he starts making advances towards her and Trace puts a stop to that because he is no good , with or without the children he is still a cad.
Day by day they get to known each other while still allowing space. Trace allows her to clean for him and Fiona learns what she can and cannot touch and turning his home into a small farm with all the animals she has been bringing home.
Then when Max's father kidnapped Fiona as a wife for his son, Trace saves her and claims her as his. 
They care deeply for one another and though they are not married yet they are living together in harmony.
