This is steamy, has a satisfying conclusion and has a sense of peace. Vanessa is shunned by society for falling for the wrong man. Rather than let the ostracism define her, she uses it to travel and explore. When she winds up at an inn on the solstice, she meets the ghost haunting one of the rooms. Curiosity has her searching for the answers as to why Jonathon is stuck in the inn. The where and how she finds answers along with her resolve to do the right thing give her the HEA she deserves.
This was a great novella for the Christmas holidays. A hot ghost, a hot guy and an independent woman. What more could you ask for? I have read the book and also listened to the audio book. I am used to Derek Perkins narrating, but I have to say Stella Hunter and Shane East did a fantastic job! Kerrigan has not written a bad book! she has a way with imagery, even in her novellas that put you IN the story. I will keep recommending her as a fantastic author to all and sundry! :)
Vanessa Latimer is stranded in a snow storm in Scotland. Johnathan de Lohr is a ghost from the Jacobite Rebellion where he died. How can a lady of flesh and blood and a ghost from the past love and live together? The solstice and Christmas won't be enough, but the key maybe in the Chamber of Sorrows. Not a dry eye when I finished this one. A feel good HEA in the season of miracles.
This book really isn't my thing. I was enjoying it however until the ending, which was really perplexing to me, that's how this is going to roll? ok. Its a short book so if you're looking for something to read quickly, this would be one to try. I'm hoping that since the Christmas anthology has all the books sorta tied in with each other when I read it, this book will make more sense. 3 stars.
Ohhhh my goodness, Kerrigan Byrne has indeed cast a spell with this wonderful story of a holiday trip gone wrong. I loved the very premise of this story and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I fell hard for these characters and while I wish their story went a little longer, in retrospect it was exactly what I wanted and needed. So good.

This was my first read by this author and it won't be the last! I loved this story of a sweet and adventurous woman who falls in love with the ghost of an Earl who lost his life at the battle of Culloden. I couldn't put it down and wondered how they would find an HEA...they did and in a most wonderful way.
I love Kerrigan Byrne and I can’t wait for the next book. I really enjoy the twists of this story. I thought it was a neat twist on a classic. I love Vanessa character. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.

What a lovely story. Jonathan Dr Lohr from the Kathryn LeVegue book,The Earl in Winter has his story in this wonderful tale. Well written, with strong characters. Had quite an emotional moment or two. Although not necessary I do recommend reading LeVegue's book first.
