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.

Story: I've read a lot of hunky sexy highlander romances, from time travel and magic, to fae, and druids... I know them all.... but never a ghost story! This is unique but so verrrry enjoyable. if you like a historical HEA romance for what it is then you'll enjoy this one too.
Narrator: Not so good, in that his female voices sound like a baritone male doing a female impression badly. But otherwise he was good. I didn't turn it off and reach for my Kindle instead, so I guess it's possible to get past it.
Heat factor: Red Hot! The theme IS sex. But this isn't erotica and it's not crass.... no more so than any other in this genre.
This is a wonderful story wove with the very air of the Highlands woven into it. With the writings of Sue-Ellen and the great Narriator, it was the makings of a super tale. Don't miss this one.
This was a great part. I will admit there was a lot of talk about sex that was bold and that was a little eye opening. Great story line! I loved the narrator's male voices esp his Scottish accent but his female voice was chalk scratching irritating. Mara sounded like Dennis the Mennis which really took away from how I pictured her in the story. If you could take the female voice of the narrator in the next two books in the series and use this narrators male voice it would be great !
Too much sex, if there is such a thing! I wanted to listen to a story, not a man's thoughts of desire of a woman's body. There is a great storyline, but I felt it strayed way too much from the story, to sexual desires. It detracted from the book, for my personal reading.
Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
I liked the story but i wish we got more explanation about the ghost world and the others beyond the veil that hurt Alex. I enjoyed the process of Alex getting over his hatred for the MacDougalls and falling in love with Mara. Their antics and banter was entertaining.
while the overall storyline was decent...the book was more a continual sex scene, rather then a story with parts that were sexually charged. I was truly disappointed and found this book very difficult to finish.
A man should not try to sound like a woman...it takes away from the audio of the story. Loved the ending.
JUST RIDICULOUS... totally ridiculous! From the writing to the narration...ridiculous! Really sorry I wasted time and credit on this one.
