Much Ado in the Moolight

Back Cover:

When Victoria McKinnon’s brother offers to finance her production of Hamlet, she leaps at the chance. She can’t imagine anything better than staging Shakespeare’s masterpiece in an honest-to-goodness English castle. There’s just one problem: the place is haunted by a grumpy, gorgeous Highland warrior who’s furious that anyone dares to invade his home.Connor MacDougal has no intention of relinquishing his authority over Thorpewold castle to anyone, let alone a McKinnon. But when he catches a glimpse of the beautiful intruder, suddenly he can’t help but wonder why it’s taken eight hundred years into his afterlife to find the love of a lifetime…

My Take:

I have to say that of all of Lynn Kurland's books, this is one of my favorites!! I don't know if I could just relate to Victoria or if I just fell in love with Conner. Either way, I LOVED the adventure these two shared!! 
Victoria is the director of a theater company and they relocate to Scotland to do a production of Hamlet at her brother's castle. Conner is the lord of the castle with the mind that no one will take it away from him. EVER! When he discovers his laird-ship is threatened, he immediately riles his forces. However when Victoria walks through the door for the first time, he falls to his knees! (How fun!!) At that moment he is lost, even though he has no idea!
Fun and sassy, Victoria is a strong heroine who takes control of her otherwise suddenly out of control situation. She's a strong lead and Conner is so sinfully scrumptious I almost wish I had a ghost of my own!
If you are looking for a feel-good, fall-in-love-all-over-again kind of book, this is it!
