Genevieve Buchanan inherited a castle—and a ghost to go along with it. But Kendrick de Piaget was no typical ghost. He was a handsome and infuriatingly arrogant thirteenth-century knight. At first he wanted to frighten Genevieve, though she was more charmed than scarred by his ghostly tricks. But when his thoughts turned to wooing her instead, Genevieve had to face her greatest fear: falling in love.

    " I love Kurland because she is a clean romance author. This book was not clean like her others so I was a little sad.This is the story of Genevieve Buchanan and Kendrick DePiaget (Ghost). I liked the over all book and was able to skip over the parts that I didn't want to read. "

    " So, as I think back on this book (I am like 4 books ahead of this one now), I remember that I devoured it. I read all day for like 2 days and then it was over. I loved this story. I mean, okay, her female characters all tend to be basically the same woman. That is getting slightly boring. But her MEN!! Sheesh. The De Piaget men are just breathtaking. I can't get enough of them!! And Kendrick definitely did not disappoint. This story was particularly romantic because of the unique way in which he finds himself in the future. He was killed at the end of Richard and Jessica's book (who knows which one that was; her titles are so ridiculous), but I already knew from a previous book (Amanda and Jake's) what would happen to him. Kurland likes to give away parts of certain stories, within other stories and I'm fine with that. I knew that Kendrick became a ghost when he died and that he was tied to Seakirk for almost 800 years before "something" happened to free him from that existence. I also knew that he ended up with Genevieve and that they had bunches of kids. But that was all I knew when I started reading this book. It was wonderful getting to see the hilarious beginning to Kendrick and Genevieve's relationship! I love that they fell in love while he was still a ghost and that before said falling in love, he wanted to either scare her into leaving, drive her (literally crazy) or KILL her!! It was really funny watching him try to do those things, knowing that they would end up having a HEA. Her reaction to him was perfect. I also loved that they couldn't touch while they were falling in love. It made everything so much more intense and heightened. And then that one moment where they could magically touch, but while he was still a ghost!!! Aghh! I almost died it was so romantic. This was a seriously amazing book. I really loved it. I only have one small complaint -- the FOOTSY PAJAMAS!!!! What the crap was that?? So totally, completely lame. And it REALLY pulled me out of the romance of the scene every time she would mention them. Uggh. Annoying. I actually had to make myself just picture more casually sexy pajamas instead, like a tank top and flannel pants...or a t-shirt with just underwear. Much. Better. Still loved it though. ;) "

    " I have SO much on my plate lately that I find I can't give my proper attention to a new story and am finding it utterly relaxing to read some "old favorites". This time through I'm reading in order of publication, as opposed to by family. The little details in the series' make more sense this time around and even though I know what's going to happen, I'm still very much enjoying them. So. I am reading. Maybe nothing new for a little while, but the reading never ends. Great story. Liked it just as much the second time around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia Lanter | 2/8/2014

    " Total escapism, not great writing, but boy if I do ever like the idea of a knight coming to life. Ghosts and romance, who knew I'd like the combo. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn | 2/5/2014

    " A little to far fetched even for me but an ok read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 1/16/2014

    " This book is my absolute favorite of all Kurland books I've ever read! The ghost is awesome. I will never forget the scene where the butler dialed the phone for Kendrick ( the ghost) and he said into it, "Come home Genevieve....." Ahhhhh what a guy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Highland-dreamer | 11/16/2013

    " My favorite so far of the de Piaget books!! Definitely one of the best, most romantic that I have read in a long time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 9/24/2013

    " This is in my top 5 favorite books. Ignore the silly book cover. Fun ghost story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 9/9/2013

    " Pleasant easy read. Like the ghost angle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sha Mslvoe ♥♥♥ | 9/8/2013

    " Was completely enchanting. I laughed, I cried, I cheered and groaned. Read it! It's great!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 6/28/2013

    " For me, one of the very best romance books of all time. If you like a happily ever-after, clean love story that melts your heart, then you will like this book. I leave it to other reviewers to go into more detail, if they want, I just rate this book as one of my top 5 Romance Genre books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vj Parker | 4/26/2013

    " This book was the usual Lynn Kurland adventure, her little twists keep you from wanting to put it down, her descriptive way of expressing the scenery and the energy of the time leads one to imagine a variety of places one would love to visit them slesve "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 3/14/2013

    " I couldn't put this book down once I got about 1/4 of the way in. Loved the man in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Very romantic too. I love many titles from this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/8/2012

    " This was not my fave by Lynn Kurland. It had a lovely romance and different storyline, but it shows to be her earlier writing, mostly with the suspense too handily remedied. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Oleksak | 10/26/2012

    " Great paranormal read. Kendrick is a lovable ghost and perfect foil for Jennifer. Great story but read about Robin and Ann first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Calah | 10/14/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 8/17/2012

    " This wasn't my favorite, it had some cheese... But I liked it, I loved Kendrick... It had some sad parts, some funny, lots of schmooze, and it was a bit predictable... But I had been waiting for Kendrick's story, so I'm happy with it.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 7/9/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Hall | 3/16/2011

    " I love that this author takes you through time into historical past and mixes it with the future or current day for some. Lynn Kurland is one of my favorite authors. I am not a big romance reader but, this series of books are more than just a romance novel. I truly enjoy reading these over and over. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 2/26/2011

    " There wasn't much of a plot to this one. So while I liked the characters, and thought the romance was sweet, I was bored after about the first 100 pages. "
