Summary

Simon MacKay, the last Earl of Cleitmuir, was murdered 200 years ago because of his family’s dangerous legacy. Alone and cursed, he haunts his home in order to protect the lost treasure. A pastime that leaves him angry and embittered, until he meets a feisty American tourist. Not only is Laurel sexy and beautiful, she can also see him in his ghostly form.

Antiquities expert Laurel Saville leaves Chicago to visit her best friend in the romantic Scottish Highlands. She is saved from a tragic fall by the ghostly Simon. Once she realizes she is not crazy, she pledges to help him find his family’s missing artifact. A pledge hindered by treasure hunter Alex Mackenzie, a descendant of the clan that murdered Simon.

Laurel risks everything, including her life, to help Simon resolve the issues keeping him Earth-bound. But will she lose him forever, or is there a way Laurel can keep him with her on this Earthly plane?

Mystery & suspense in a paranormal romance package

This book was slow to progress initially but definitely gains momentum as the plot thickens. And boy does it thicken!

While the story can safely be categorised as a paranormal romance, it is so much more. The characters are surprisingly normal, including Simon McKay, the ghost. The story switched from present day to the past throughout the length of the book, giving it a prominent historical feel as well. Then there are elements of adventure, suspense and mystery thrown in as well.

I liked the characters though they aren't necessarily as they seem at first. I suppose that is part of the charm. Poor Laurel came to Scotland to get away from a cheating ex-boyfriend, see her best friend and to take a break from her work. Instead she got so much more and lost more than she bargained for.

I would recommend this story but also encourage listeners to stick through the first bit that does seem a little slow-paced. It gets better as the story progresses.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
