Scottish Gothic Romance


When Cate Stewart’s life falls apart, a job cataloguing the vast library at Highcrag on the Scottish east coast sounds perfect. Especially since she has a personal interest in the notorious Scottish witch hunts of the sixteenth and seventeenth century.


But the house has a dark past that seems to affect the present. And an owner, Lyall Kinnaird, who unexpectedly stirs Cate’s damaged heart.


As the Celtic festival of Samhain approaches, when the veil between the living and dead is thinnest, who can Cate trust?

"Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. History and romance an ideal combination for a relaxing holiday read with a bit of suspense added."

"The historical background, though important, is introduced with a lightness

of touch which make it all the more believable."

"Enjoyable gothic romantic suspense, reminiscent of the

old Mary Stewart books."
