Publisher's Summary

Drake McCormick prays for nothing but peace, the final sleep, and yet knows his prayers will go unanswered as he is cursed to walk the crumbling halls of his castle with one lone companion, a small boy named Collin. Never allowed to venture beyond the ruins, for if they so much as dare to cross the threshold they will be cast into the deepest darkest depths of Hell, they watch the world pass them by, unseen and unheard by the infrequent visitors to his hall.

Until her.

The beauty and mystery of the Scottish Highlands pulls Mary Beth to its shores with the promise of a new beginning, a new way of life. But add one sexy Scottish ghost and his endearing companion, and her new life is like nothing she could ever have predicted.

Couldn’t even finish it.

I tried to enjoy it but I couldn’t make myself finish it. Listened to about an hour of it and my mind jot wandering. The story is boring and feels like something written by a pre-teen and the narrator’s voice is so monotonous I feel like I’m in school listening to a boring lecture.

Great Scottish accent/ghost story

I enjoyed listening to this book, but I think it would have been better if a female narrated it. The narrator's authentic-sounding accent was best when he spoke the male dialogue, but it also seemed as though he was focused on enunciation more than performance. I felt like I was being read a story rather than being immersed in to another world. The story was interesting, different, a quick read, and I'd like to read a full-length book by this author.

Ok

The story was pretty good but the narration really let it down. Needs a different narrator.
