Publisher's Summary

Scotland, 1928.

Dr. Ainsley Graham is cultivating a reputation as an eccentric. Two years ago, he catastrophically ended his academic career by publicly claiming to talk to ghosts. When Joachim Cockburn, a WWI veteran studying the power of delusional thinking, arrives at his door, Ainsley quickly catalogs him as yet another tiresome Englishman determined to mock his life's work.

But Joachim is tenacious and openhearted, and Ainsley's intrigued despite himself. He agrees to motor his handsome new friend around to Scotland's most unmistakable hauntings. If he can convince Joachim, Ainsley might be able to win back his good name and then some. He knows he's not crazy - he just needs someone else to know it, too.

Joachim is one thesis away from realizing his dream of becoming a psychology professor, and he's not going to let anyone stop him, not even an enchanting ginger with a penchant for tartan and lewd jokes. But as the two travel across Scotland's lovely - and definitely haunted - landscape, Joachim's resolve starts to melt. And he's beginning to think that an empty teaching post without the charming Dr. Graham would make a very poor consolation prize indeed....

Contains mature themes.

Perfection!

Loved the voice and how the narrator made the voices so right in the moments and for the characters.

Very good story, excellent narration!

Really enjoyed the story. Joachim has travelled up to Scotland to meet a and study a disgraced academic. The reason why Ainsley (the academic) is disgraced? He declared that ghosts exist. Ainsley is a quirky character and soon enough he's seduced Joachim to his ways- both in and out of bed. The story is set after the Great War (I) and made an interesting setting. Cornell Collins is an excellent performer. I have several books that he's narrated and have loved them all!

Mostly porn

Maybe that’s what you’re looking for. I was looking for more story. I don’t need it to be SFW but it’s boring and annoying that I can’t read happy stories about gay people without hearing 1000 synonyms for penis. Cornell Collins is great.
