Publisher's Summary

In 1522, the very night they were wed, Royce Morgan and his new bride, Beatrice Godwin, were murdered on their way home to Lacybourne Manor. After the cruel deed was done, a local witch came across their bodies, witnessing firsthand the tragedy of star-crossed lovers. Vowing that Royce and Beatrice would someday uncross those stars, using magic mixed with murder as well as true love, she linked their spirits together with hers (because someone had to protect them) forever...or until their reincarnated souls find happily ever after.

Now arrogant, forbidding Colin Morgan lives at Lacybourne, knowing, from lore (as well as the portraits of Royce and Beatrice that hang in Lacybourne's hall and the small fact that he looks exactly like Royce Morgan), that he is the reincarnated soul of his ancestor. One stormy night, flighty, free-spirited, scarily kind-hearted Sibyl Godwin comes to Lacybourne and it doesn't escape Colin's notice that Sibyl is the spitting image of Beatrice. However murder, magic, a warrior's heart beating in a modern man's chest, a woman bent on doing good deeds even if they get her into loads of trouble, a good witch whose family has vowed throughout the centuries to protect true love, distrust, and revenge make a volatile cocktail.

This means the path to happily ever after is paved with tranquilizer darts, pensioners on a rampage, Sibyl's bad morning moods, heartbreaking misunderstandings, and all kinds of magic, good and bad.

    "Least Favorite Male Character"

    I am a big KA fan and usually love her work, but I can not count how many time I wanted to give up on this on. The main male character is horrible; bossy, overbearing and basically just a jerk. I never understood how the female lead could be in love with someone she was afraid of and who controlled her that way. I wanted to like this....but it was just not good.

    I have chronic back pain. Had major surgery in 2006. Audio books takes my mind off the pain as I go through the day listening. Love Audible!

    "Great love story"

    Her books flow with love, excitement, and plenty of drama. The narration is superb and I never want the book to end.

    "4 Lacybourne Manor Stars"

    This one was a little more what I was expecting with this series. Reincarnation is the key to this romance. It was actually really a sweet one.

    Colin is a bit of an alpha male kind of dude, and for that I liked him and I didn't. He was almost on the too much side but he redeems himself bigggg time.

    Sibyl is a character I had to grow to like, in some spots and sometimes I would say to myself how could you not like her all the time! Because she was sweet and kind and wasn't a push over (most) of the time. But there were sometimes when I wanted to shake her.

    Together Colin and Sibyl make sense and for that, I can forgive all the other second guessing. It was sweet to hear them come to terms with not only what has happening but them falling in love with each other. Great love story.

    Not sure of the narration in all 3 books was why I wasn't a fan of the males because she made them sound almost, He man. Mine. You do this… You Mine.
    Her voice just had that possessive quality with each of the male voices. It worked for some part but again for others I just wanted regular Colin to come out. If that make any sense yay if not sorry!

    *You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

    "Loved it!!"

    Great series and couple. Just enough paranormal and not too much. Loved the "oldies" and the epilogue.

    "50 Shades Meets Jennifer Crusie"

    The male lead is so unlikeable. The sex scenes are numerous and written in such detail it felt like listening in real time. And they are often more like rape scenes. But then you have a cute dog, nice old folks, a flighty social worker that turns adorable and fiesty half through this long book, a sweet old witch..... It is all so mismatched. Some stern editing and this could have been on a Nora Roberts or Crusie level.

    "Creepy guy, not romantic"

    The guy in this is creepy and rapey, not romantic. He gives me the heeby jeebies and I had to give up a couple of hours in. It wasn't getting better and I felt uncomfortable for the heroine.
