If you like Lynn Kurland, you will absolutely love Sandy Blair!

Miss Elizabeth Pudding has never had a real family, but when she hears that a distant relative made her the beneficiary of his castle, all of her dreams are about to come true. She will finally have a home of her own, the only problem is that her new home is in Scotland and when she finally sees this ‘castle’, it’s in bad disrepair as well as haunted by a very good looking giant of a ghost. Great! Such is her life, just one more obstacle to overcome.

Duncan MacDougall, laird of Blackstone, was cursed centuries ago to wander as a ghost in his ancestral castle. Can the new mistress of the hall be the one to break the curse and free him or will she be his destiny and change history itself?

The only way to get to the castle is by boat and when Beth takes that boat out alone, she is caught in a storm. When the boat capsizes, her handsome ghost saves her, but when she wakes up, it’s not to the drafty, broken down castle that she has just moved into, but a wonderful draped bed, with glass in the windows and rushes on the floor. Where in the world is she? This must be a dream? She can’t really be in medieval Scotland? Now she’s gone and done it. How will she ever be able to overcome this obstacle…this is a biggie!

It’s been a long while since I have read a time travel, and let me tell you, it was worth the wait. I read this book in one sitting; I just couldn’t put it down. Duncan and Beth are wonderful characters with so much passion and drive; you can’t help but fall in love with them. The secondary characters are just as much fun, with many possible stories that could develop into their own books. The setting of medieval Scotland is truly enchanting and takes the reader to places that they may never see but can only dream about.

Ms. Blair is a fantastic, fresh new voice in today’s romance genre. I predict a very successful career for this talented author.
