This was actually a really great read. It had just about everything a reader could ask for...mystery, great romance, wonderful ghost story and a treasure hunt. I was sorry to have read it so fast as it was one of those books you truly hate to have end.

Set in Scotland, in 1785 the Lady Meleri decides on a "challenge" marriage rather than marry a man known for his cruelty. Robert Douglas is equally challenged-- he must marry an English woman or lose his ancestral home, etc. Great tension, adventure and solid characters that you love to cheer for.

Great Scottish story. Love the rich historical details and the tension between the characters. Fast paced story that you will really like. She is a great author and this is another excellent book. A good read.

Lady Meleri Weatherby is desperate to escape the unthinkable; marriage to a man she does not love, a man she knows to be unspeakably cruel. In a bold move, shebreaks off her betrothal to Lord Philip and flees her in Northumberland, vowing to marry the first man she meets, never considering the consequences of such a show of independence.

Robert Douglas has been dealt and equeally dark hand by fate, the proud Scot must take an English bride or lose his ancestral home and noble name. It seems an impossible situation, until destiny puts him in the path of a strong-willed English lass with a will to survive that equals his own.

Marriage is an ideal salvation for both. Meleri will be safe from her vengeful finance in Beloyn Castle with the Douglas clan, and Robert will be able to keep all he holds dear. But neither has bargained on a heartless man who will go to any lengths to seek revenge, the tenacity of a stubborn ghost and the most powerful force of all: love.
