Highlander in Her Bed
She’s fallen in love with an antique bed. But the ghostly Highlander it comes with is more than she bargained for…
Tour guide Mara MacDougall stops at a London antique shop-and spots perhaps the handsomest bed ever. Then she bumps into the handsomest man ever. Soon Mara can't forget the irresistible-if haughty-Highlander. Not even when she learns that she's inherited a Scottish castle.
Spectral Sir Alexander Douglas has hated the Clan MacDougall since he was a medieval knight and they tricked him into a curse-the curse of forever haunting the bed (the very one that Mara now owns) that was once intended for his would-be bride. But Mara makes him feel what no other MacDougall has-a passion that he never knew he'd missed.
HIGHLANDER IN HER BED is book one of my Ravenscraig Legacy series. This book was previously published by Penguin/NAL in 2006 and has now been totally revamped, re-edited, and has a gorgeous new cover. There's also bonus content. Now available at the low price of $2.99.
The new edition is better than before!
All-business American Mara McDougall thinks there are no such things as ghosts. But a trip to Scotland and one gorgeous phantom are about to prove her dead wrong.
A self-employed tour guide, Mara is weary from leading her charges all over London. So she takes a breather as an antique shop, and spots perhaps the handsomest bed ever. Then she bumps into the handsomest man ever. He has a sexy Scottish burr, a heated gaze, and a chip on his brawny shoulder. Despite a bad start, Mara can’t deny her attraction to the irresistible Highlander. Then she discovers she’s inherited a Scottish castle, and the stipulations she must meet in order to claim her unexpected windfall will help her banish the hot Scot from her mind, or so she hopes.
As a ghost, Sir Alexander Douglas has reviled the name MacDougall for ages. Once a medieval knight betrothed to a lass he’d yet to meet, he fell victim to her beau, a MacDougall, who tricked him into a curse that he would forever haunt the bed intended for his would-be bride. Now Alexander will stop at nothing to keep the magnificent four-poster out of MacDougall – or McDougall – hands. But when Mara buys the bed for her castle, he reckons she’d nothing like his enemy. After all, no other MacDougall ever made him burn with passion and long for the one thing he never knew he missed: love.
Mini-Excerpt (Highland magick)
Set-Up ~ Mara is in the Ravenscraig Castle library, recalling her father’s words about Scotland…
Her father had sworn that Scotland held magic. Dancing faeries and water kelpies, powers not of this world. All of that was there, he’d insist, alive and waiting, in the blue of hill, sea, and sky.
Don’t doubt the warp and weft of your heritage. His familiar words filled her heart, so real she could almost feel him behind her, his age-spotted hands resting on her shoulders. There isn’t an inch of the Highlands not steeped in legend. Wonders can happen there – if only you open your heart.
She could almost believe it.
