West Highlands, near Oban, 1312
Sir Alexander Douglas is on his way to claim his bride when he and his men are set upon by MacDougalls. His intended has betrayed him, he and his men are dying and with his last breath he curses the carved four poster bed he had made for his new bride...."You will rue the hour you e'er laid eyes on my bed. I shall haunt you and your issue until the end of all days, that I swear." His curse on the MacDougalls etched onto eternity.
Present day, London and then Scotland
Mara McDougall runs a tour business for would-be ghost hunters. As she is taking a break and finding some downtime from her work for just a bit she finds herself in an antique shop and comes upon an unusual four poster bed. She falls in love with it but knows she has no room for it in the states. She runs into a tall, handsome Highlander who she feels is dressed rather funny and he tells her to "Begone! Her ilk will never sleep in his bed." then he just ups and disappears. His rudeness infuriates her. She goes back to her hotel to find a message from a solicitor. She meets him to find that she's inherited Ravenscraig Castle from an eccentric old lady who took a liking to her when she ran her tours through her mansion in the Cotswolds. The castle is in Scotland and in order to keep it she has to erect a MacDougall memorial on the castle grounds and reunite the clan. She now has a place for that bed she fell in love with.
She arrives at her castle only to find him there to her amazement. She soon starts to believe he IS a ghost and this starts a funny and yet trying journey for these two. For hundreds of years Alex has haunted the bed and scared away all MacDougalls but here comes this American woman who stands her ground and he finds himself falling in love with the enemy. What a humorous and heart pulling story! Two people who find each other across time and came to find that real love and a little magic can conquer all. I was even oh so glad to see a favorite hero of mine make an appearance.... Sir Marmaduke Strongbow in all his ghostly glory!
Besides that, the secondary characters introduced as fellow cursed highlander buddies of our main hero are quite entertaining. I wouldn't mind picking up one of their sequals. But this is a light read, as mentioned by other reviewers. And don't let the cover blurb by Angela Knight fool you into thinking this is a particularly steamy read either. It has it's moments but never gets so hot you'd have to call the fire department.
