by Debbie Peterson
She fell deeply in love with him in the early days of her childhood. And in return, she captured his heart the moment he first cast his gaze upon her…
Renowned artist, Mariah Jennings hired to paint a thirteenth-century Scottish castle, gets the shock of her life when she encounters the handsome knight who has dominated a lifetime of portraits and sketchbooks.
But Sir Cailen Braithnoch is no ordinary ghost, nor did he suffer an ordinary death. Magic of the blackest kind cast a pall over the knights centuries ago. As the ghost and his lady seek to unravel the paradox surrounding his death, black arts, otherworldly forces, and a jealous rival conspire against them.
Will those forces tear them apart, or is their love destined to last throughout the ages?
I received this book from the author and Paranormal Romance & Authors that Rock
Mariah has been commissioned to paint for a project Gallery of Castles, on her last stop Laird MacNaughton’s castle, she finds she isn’t alone. The castle is inhabited by a group of knights. One of these knights Sir Cailen is the man from her childhood dreams. Mariah has been drawing him since a young child. Cailen begins falling in love with Mariah, and Mariah has been in love with him most of her life. There is more the romance going on at the castle. other ghosts that the knights can’t see, Evan from town is up to something. Can Mariah solve the mystery before something bad happens?
I enjoyed the storyline. There is a lot going on at the castle, other ghosts, why the group of knights are all stuck there as ghosts. How it all ties together. Debbie does a wonderful job of keeping the story moving and solving all the mysteries without missing a beat. I loved the romance between Cailen and Mariah, it moves slowly along, you can feel as they become closer and their feelings grow stronger.
If you love paranormal/ romance this is a fantastic read
He tilted his head to the side and shrugged. “It wouldn’t have mattered. I didn’t know when I brewed it that you had already given your heart away. And of all th’ stupid, ridiculous things you could possibly do, you gave your heart to a ghost. I should have realized it from th’ beginning when I first laid eyes on your sketches. Therefore, my potion wouldn’t have had th’ desired effect.”
“And you think this new one will?”
“Och, without doubt.” He nodded his confidence. “This one will make you forget any of th’ knights ever existed. Do ye ken? All your memories of them will be gone in th’ mere blink of an eye.”
The arrogant tone roused her temper even further. “Just so you know—there’s not an herb, potion, or magic incantation powerful enough to erase Cailen from my heart. He’s possessed it far too long. You’re wasting your time.”
He shrugged. “We’ll see.”
Though she tried not to show it, Evan’s calm assurance scared her half to death. Her thoughts drifted to Cailen. Surely when he returned to the castle, he would move heaven and earth to find her. If she called out to him periodically, he would hear her. He could find her simply by following the sound of her voice—
“If you’re thinking your knight will rescue you, let me save you th’ trouble of hoping,” he said. “Cailen is not coming back.”
