This is the second time for me reading this spectacular Scottish paranormal romance in "Highlander in Her Bed" by the multi talented Allie MacKay. Which is book one of "The "Ravenscraig Legacy Series". You can read this outstanding book alone or in series order. It was even better the second time around as I absolutely love love loved this book! Well the male hero is a hot Scot, green eyed sexy, muscle bound, six foot-four, sword wielding , kilt wearing honorable knight who can play the bag pipes quite beautifully. This man has the sexiest brogue that would melt any lassies heart.and the backdrop of the story is bonnie Scotland. Have I got your attention yet? Guaranteed you won't be able to put this one down! I read it in a day, yes it is that fabulous!
In this beautifully written captivating story that sizzles it starts off in the West Highlands, near Oban, the year of our lord 1312....
In this story....Sir Alexander Douglas one of The kings most trusted and honorable knights goes to claim his wife Lady Isobel MacDougall even bringing the biggest most beautiful hand carved four poster bed as bridal gift. This union was to end the feuding his beloved King Robert Bruce believed. Yet he and his entire clan are met and cut down with treachery by the evil MacDougall's ,where his treacherous evil wife is the mastermind. Yet the MacDougall's send a curse upon him with this magical pin to protect themselves from King Roberts's wrath to protect the MacDougall Clan and honor. This pin called the Bloodstone of Dalriada a sacred pin passed down from the first King of Scotland Kenneth MacAlpin and stolen from King Robert the Bruce's cloak in a struggle at Dalrigh. It is a possession of The MacDougall's. They had it all planned out to say Honorable Alexander had stolen it and make it look as Alexander had shamed his bride. Collin explains the pin is magical containing the blood of a saint or even fey magic and can grant three wishes between a year and a day according to the fairy folk. It's obvious Collin does not believe in the power of the pin and us only attempting to infuriate Alex. Except Alexander damned himself wishing himself and Collin MacDougall in hell first. His next wish was in anger "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!" After that Alexander sadly was murdered.
Present day 2014 England and Scotland....
The heroine of this story is beautiful tour guide one Mara MacDougall from Philadelphia USA who enters an antique shop and hears the words "bluidy MacDougall bastards" admiring an antique hand carved four poster bed. As she turns around she literally bumps into the most handsome man she has ever seen! One six foot-four with the most gorgeous sea green eyes with the sexiest Scottish brogue she ever saw,but also extremely rude with a definite chip on his shoulder when it came to the MacDougall's. As she is admiring this beautiful antique fbed and she apologizes for bumping into him he says the bed is mine wench, begone! Mara who was on her last day in England knew she couldn't afford this enormous bed nor her small place in Philadelphia she wouldn't even be able to fit through the door. Also why was this man talking as he was from another time thinking he is just another person who dislikes American. Not realizing she is talking to a seven hundred year old ghost! Especially since she is the last person who believes in the paranormal as she has been taking around a bunch of ghost hunting clients all around old English castle with some seance's too and not one single apparition found not the she believe in it. Then she gets a call and finds out one of her eccentric clients has passed away and left her Ravenscraig Castle with some stipulations which she accepted anything to stay on UK soil.
Of course Alexander who has been guarding the bed all these years is not too thrilled he has to go to his enemies holding now. As this castle was to be part of his bride price long ago. So his temper is really in a tangle you might say, even worse then it had been. Now the fun begins and I will leave the rest for the reader to find out how these two can finally put their differences and prejudices aside to come together and big differences at that considering one is a mortal and the other a ghost. Yet the chemistry between them is immediate as you feel it through each written word. One doesn't believe in ghosts and the other hates everything MacDougall!
This was really such a joy to read and even the cast of her eccentric staff at Ravenscraig Castle was hilarious. The one legged gardener, ghost hunting cook, and of course there are several four legged furry dogs that will melt your heart with hilarity at some of their shenanigans. Another reason I always love reading Allie MacKay book being such a tremendous animal love myself especial mans best friend. Also Mara's Philadelphia Scottish American father was so sweet, endearing and humorous to read about, as he is Scottish obsessed very proud of his Scottish roots which I loved.
I am a big believer in second chances but for Mara and Alex there are many obstacle in the way. Will they get that second chance of happiness or are they doomed to a lifetime or in Alexander's case an eternity of misery? You really must read this magnificent book to find out,
This book has all the elements that make reading books like "Highlander In Her Bed" such a pleasure and delight to read. I laughed, I cried, sighed and tingled. There were nail biting scenes too with anticipation of what would happen next, so many twists in turns which only happens in truly spectacular reads to me. It really is a really wonderful book. This book was extraordinary and I totally was mesmerized by each page and couldn't stop reading. It was that outstanding yes and I highly recommend this magnificent book you don't want to miss it!
I look forward to more books by this gifted author Allie MacKay in the future which are always so wonderful and on my keeper shelf forever! Happy Reading~ B
