Buchanan is a owner of a successful interior design business who
has always dreamed of knights in shining armor and castles.
But when she inherits a castle in England she refuses it until her business
falls apart. Although she is unaware that the man behind her
business disaster is waiting in the castle to destroy her.
de Piaget is an arrogant and charming 13th Century Knight who was murdered
in the castle Genevieve inherited. He's haunted it for 700
years. His plan is simple. When the last Buchanan is either
dead or insane he can get the title of the castle in his name and then
he can rest. Genevieve is the last sane member of her family,
thanks to his haunting abilities. So it should be easy right?
first encounter with Kendrick is wonderfully comical. Please understand
this is not a scary book. She picks his room to sleep
in which Kendrick doesn't like. She hears thump, grumble. When
she looks what she sees is a huge man drenched in blood glaring evilly
at her with his arms reached out towards her, an arrow protruded
in his chest, and he said "Begone wench if you're life means aught".
And that's just what Genevieve wants to do. She didn't want to stay
in the house with the ghost even if it is her dream castle.
Luckily Worthington (the Butler) convinces her to stay, that there's nothing
to fear. There are so many funny scenes that I laughed till
I cried. Genevieve realizes Kendrick can't hurt her. He does
scare her several times. In one scene she wants to know if he can
get through a locked door. He's baffled why she's asking him that.
When all he's wanting is for her to leave. While he ponders that
she goes into her/his room and locks him out. Its hilarious.
She just ignores him which he doesn't like, and then she walks right through
him. Its full of laughs.
and Genevieve come to a truce. They're going to share the castle.
They watch TV together (Kendrick loves football). Kendrick tells
her about his life and family and she meets the assortment of ghosts who
are under Kendrick's command, including his best friend, Royce, and servant,
Nazir, who were murdered with him (some of these ghosts appear in Lynn's
historical books, so its before their death, including Kendrick of course).
funny, he likes to be the center of attention, he definitely doesn't like
to be ignored, and they fall in love. Genevieve fears physical
intimacy. But she's comfortable with Kendrick, although he's big,
bossy, arrogant, and sometimes gruff, he's a ghost. Nothing
can happen right? Or is it possible Kendrick can have another
chance at life considering his was stole from him and can he help Genevieve
overcome her fears.
wish I could do this book justice, but I know I can't. The
humor is incredible. The love story is wonderful and the ending is
fantastic. This is my all time favorite Paranormal Romance and it
most definitely has a happy ending.
