Publisher's Summary

She fell deeply in love with him in the early days of her childhood. And in return, she captured his heart the moment he first cast his gaze upon her....

Renowned artist Mariah Jennings, hired to paint a 13th-century Scottish castle, gets the shock of her life when she encounters the handsome knight who has dominated a lifetime of portraits and sketchbooks. 

But Sir Cailen Braithnoch is no ordinary ghost, nor did he suffer an ordinary death. Magic of the blackest kind cast a pall over the knights centuries ago. 

As the ghost and his lady seek to unravel the paradox surrounding his death, black arts, otherworldly forces, and a jealous rival conspire against them. 

Will those forces tear them apart, or is their love destined to last throughout the ages?

Clean paranormal romance

If you like clean paranormal romance then this is for you.
I loved this because usually in paranormal romance it has more sexual tension and how quickly they can get in bed with each other.
This is refereshing in that it is about the romance and knights of old.
I will be looking up this authors other book.
Would highly recommend it!

Awesome Story!

At first the narrator Dawson McBride voice seemed low and pitched but, it wasn’t long before he found his groove. Great job Dawson! I was totally intrigued with the characters and the mysterious storyline. If you love romance, mystery and, are a sucker for a great ending then,this book is for you. For me, this read is a big fat 5 Star...loved it!

OMGosh!!! Dawson McBride!!!!!

I loved this story but I loved Dawson McBride's narration even more!!

Spirits are trapped in a castle. Spells are cast. Paintings are created. Madness ensues. Through it all, McBride is what all male voices strive to be. His voice is a Michelangelo painting. He's that brand of deep and sultry that has to be experienced. He's RC Bray, only deeper.

This is a wonderful story, it really is, but man, McBride is just next level.

ABSOLUTELY CHARMING

SPIRIT OF THE KNIGHT is a stand-alone story of romance between a modern woman and a 13th century ghost of a knight. This is a clean romance that is suitable for most ears, but it does include witches, sorcery, and a bit of passionate kissing.

When I was a young girl there was a show on TV called THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR. I loved that show and wanted to be swept off my feet by a dashing otherworldly man. I haven’t thought of the Captain in years; yes, this story brought that happy, wonderful, innocent series back to mind.

Just like the old TV show, this story is romantic, light-hearted, and charming. Cailen and his band of knights would be welcome in any woman’s home or heart.

Not only is this a sweet and ghostly romance, but it is a suspense-filled race for justice.

My only frustration was hanging pronouns. This is a personal pet peeve in real life, too. I need to know to which “he” each one is referring.

In looking up the rest of the information for this blog post, I found that Ms. Peterson has written two other “Spirit” books. I will be wishing for them on audiobook as soon as possible!

Narration: Dawson McBride did a beautiful job narrating this story. I loved how his tone changed from campfire ghost story at the beginning to supernatural romance to suspense romance and somehow managed to mix the three in the end – all while managing to maintain multiple voices.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy via Audiobookworm Promotions' Adopt-an-Audiobook, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

This sweet paranormal romance is a delight

This sweet paranormal romance was intriguing and delightful. I enjoyed both the story and the readers voice interpretation. Very well done! The main character must figure out why ghost still haunt the castle. What she discovers is a century-old mystery of curses and revenge.

Love the Gothic Aspect

This story is haunting at times, but you grow to love the ghost Cailan. Each of the characters are well-written and bring meaning and depth to the story. I love listening to Dawson McBride as the reader. He always does an excellent job. I also how the author took the time to explain the painting process of such difficult pieces. The process is written across the story of the book, but it is all there. I don't like the aspect of witchcraft in this story, but it is important as why all 53 men were trapped at one time on earth. The evil that Evan purported was egged on by another ghost, his distant aunt Elspeth who is the one who cast the incomplete spell. The story falls together with the intense climax and frightening ending.

I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
