Looking over Loch Linnhe towards Castle Stalker

Cue a phantom piper, a lost Jacobite treasure, and a cast of characters who – with Henri’s help, encourage the MacKenzies to confront the past and move on. However – will the Girl in the Castle be able to return to university once her task is completed, and leave gorgeous, sexy Keir MacKenzie behind?

What one reader had to say about Girl in the Castle

My favourite parts of this book were the conversations between Alice and Lachlan, the dialogue from both of them was simply sparkling. Your short scenery descriptions were quite magical – I’ve never been to the Highlands and in fact never wanted to, but now I do! Your book reminded me of my beloved Jilly Cooper novellas that I used to read in the 80s. Handsome, difficult hero – I really could envisage him!
