With a deadline looming and writer’s block making writing a book impossible Amelia Landry is in a tough position.  Fortunately her friend and assistant ZuZu has devised a plan to infuse a little inspiration in her life.  She’ll be spending a month in the Scottish Highlands at a supposedly haunted fourteenth-century tower house.   She might just be embarking on the biggest venture of her life - and what a story she’ll have to share with the world.


Laird Ethan Munro and his men have been living in limbo since a battle in the early 1300's when his new wife was murdered and he was accused of killing her.  They’ve lived for centuries neither alive nor dead and only physically able to touch, eat, really live for one hour each twilight.  Of all the people who have come to the Munro Keep, Amelia is the first who not only can see them; she’s the first who’s captivated by them - especially Laird Munro.

 

Amelia isn’t one to shy away from anything mystical.  As a mystery writer she loves the unexpected and part of the draw to the Highlands is the chance of an encounter with a ghostly being.  She just never envisioned that she’d become involved in an ancient mystery and actually meet the very man so embroiled in legends.  While she enchants them with her modern speech, clothing and outgoing personality, Laird Ethan and his warriors charm her with their curious natures, protective attitudes and fun loving acceptance of her presence in their lives.  For Ethan, her presence presents a bit of a problem because he’s falling for her and doesn’t want to risk losing her to the sinister being who enforced this enchantment on him and his men. 

 

Amelia’s determined to help free these men from their ‘ghostly’ existence, but is she fully prepared for the results of her meddling?  Can she possibly correct the wrongs these men suffered centuries before?  There’s no denying that she’s falling in love with Laird Munro.  What will happen if they’re unable to be together if/when they find a way to reverse the enchantment?

 

Cindy Miles completely captivated me with her newest book HIGHLAND KNIGHT.  This is one of those books that blends the past and present perfectly with plenty of humor, romance, historical charm, and witty dialogue.  I was glued to the storyline and loved how the characters interacted with each other.  I love the Scottish burr that sends shivers down your spine as you imagine these warriors speaking the phrases - and for those of you who insist on actual Gaelic in these sorts of stories, there are even some Gaelic terms, which I have to admit are downright sexy even if I didn’t fully understand the translations (and yes I did look a few of them up).  Ms. Miles has officially won me over with this captivating tale and I hope to see many more of her stories in the future.
