Angus Macgregor has endured a lot in life. Mother passing when he was a small child, he also nursed an ill father to his last breath. But when he loses his one remaining relative, an uncle he’s never met, his existence is turned on its head forever. Bequeathed Clan Gregor Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Angus leaves Australia behind to take on the family business. It’s there he finds more waiting for him than he ever dreamed possible.
Daniel Ramsey is a man with secrets, none more dangerous than the fact that he can see what others can’t. When he meets one particularly handsome Australian, the attraction is immediate. Hesitant to let down his guard, his hand is forced when a former guest of the castle comes calling and attempts to stake a claim on the very man Daniel wants.
Angus’s musings were halted by the sound of breaking crockery coming from the direction of the sisters—both young and blonde, and both of them beautiful. The slightly older looking, more intoxicated of the two had knocked her bread-and-butter plate off the table. Wearing a lascivious smile, she eyed Daniel’s form as he crouched down and began to clean up the mess.
“He’s a bit of all right, eh, Lily?” She elbowed her sister in the ribs. “And with how built he is and the size of those feet? I’ll bet a hundred quid he’s just as big under that kilt,” she announced in an all too loud voice.
A look of mortification crossed Lily’s delicate features, cornflower blue eyes widening with each word her sister blurted. Angus stood by the kitchen door frozen in place, fists clenched and blood boiling over the woman’s comments.
“Shut up, Emma. You’re making a scene,” Lily admonished in a low, menacing tone, teeth clenched as she tried to calm her surly dinner companion as best she could. She glanced around the room and took a small sip of water.
“I am not,” Emma refuted with a slow roll of her eyes, voice growing even louder in volume. “I just know a good piece of man meat when I see it, and if this bunch of twats can’t appreciate that, they can bloody well sod off.”
This book intrigued me from the beginning. I liked the characters and I loved the story line. I liked the way the story of the dead is revealed slowly and no one seems to know what is going on at first, as it intertwines with the living characters story.
The story of the dead lovers is tragic and sad. However, how it interferes with the story of the live lovers is equal parts sad, compelling , and creepy.
My favourite bit was the ending, but I won’t spoil it by telling what about it I liked.
I would really recommend this story, however, you may not want to read it before bed 😉

About the author
J. HARRIS is a mother, wife, an introvert and author. Her family is her life, her soul, and the very reason she gets out of bed every day. Coming a close second is her writing.
She discovered a passion for putting pen to paper in her later years, jotting down poems in birthday cards for family members.
It was then a spark was lit, and ever since, she hasn’t been unable to switch off the urge to share her stories.
L.J. Harris discovered that as much as experiencing pain, loss and betrayal can be devastating, capturing the feelings of anguish and loss that some of her characters have had to endure without firsthand knowledge would have proved difficult.
L.J. has been previously published and has shared several online stories and looks forward to continuing to share her work.
