Chapman revisits her time-traveling band of medieval Scots warriors in the first of a series spun off from 2008's Secrets of the Highlander. Kenzie Gregor is a centuries-old warrior who moves to modern smalltown Maine to help his friend William thwart the curse that turned him into a dragon. Accompanied by Daar, a smart-mouthed 1,800-year-old Druidic priest with waning powers and an enormous appetite, Kenzie unknowingly displaces Eve Anderson and her mother, Mabel, from their foreclosed home. Worried about Mabel's dementia and how to save the family business, Eve reluctantly allows Kenzie to hire her as a caretaker while he turns the land into a working farm. There's plenty of good humor, while Mabel's illness and the curse add necessary pathos. Lovable characters, a sweet romance and the grouchy troublemaker dragon combine for a delightful read.
