    A Haunting Romance!

    In the first story, we find Lucien and Sophia. In this story Lucien is in debt to "the Baron", a demon that holds the ownership of Lucien's soul for a deal made for 7 years. Lucien can never lose at anything, including life! He made the deal because of an oath he made to Sophia, and nothing will stop him from keeping that oath! Sophia learns of it after Lucien thinking her dead and tries to somehow save him! Next we have Adam and Charlotte. Adam has the heart and history of his gypsy/Roma mothers family. His grandmother has the 2nd sight and saves Charlotte from ghostly attacks at the castle while they find love. Last we have Hal and Morgan who happen to fall in love with the help of 2 ghostly lovers, Roland and Nell. I loved that at the end of the book, we finally find out who was bequeathed what in the will!!!

    A Haunting Good Time

    Something Wicked This Way Comes – Claire Delacroix Sophia Brisbane had lost everything she held dear and changed identities to escape the devil who took it all. After years living in an out of the way in an obscure part of England with a position in a peer’s household Sophia’s sense of security is threatened when she travels with the family to the reading of a will. The man she loved in her past brings back all the things she’s tried to forget. When she realizes what he has sacrificed can she convince him to remain or will she now lose forever? Lucien de Roye has had seven years of the devil’s own good luck. Seven years breaking a promise to a beloved family member to keep a promise to the lady he loved; a lady he loved and lost. Now as the seventh year comes to a close he is moments away from regaining all that was taken from his lady love. The last part of his plan culminates in the same area as Castle Keyvnor where he has been summoned for the reading of a will. A chance encounter changes Lucien’s feelings but not his mind – he knows he must pay his part of the deal made long ago. Loved this tale of love lost and found again. Ms. Delacroix starts with an attention getter and doesn’t let go. Her Gypsy Lord – Jane Charles Lady Charlotte Beck lives with irritating older brothers, no if’s, ands or buts about it. Having lived her entire life with one of them hovering she is looking for adventure when they are summoned to a haunted castle for the reading of a will. Slipping away to have her fortune told she doesn’t expect a handsome gypsy who is not as he seems, a round-about fortune or the doom it foretells. Not believing what she’s told could mean her death unless she accepts the truth of what she’s told and falling in love may be the only positive light in these turmoil filled days. Adam Vail is more gypsy than lord; a title he never wanted. Now that it has been thrust upon him it may become an advantage after he meets a beautiful client of his gypsy grandmother’s. After hearing the warning given he develops an uncontrollable need to protect this lady. As he fights to keep the lady alive he needs to resolve his feelings as truth or spell but can he accomplish either or will he lose his chance with his soulmate? As always, a wonderful tale by Jane Charles; her writing style has me feeling Charlotte’s frustration with her family, her skepticism, and her fear. Not to mention falling in love with Charlotte’s knight in gypsy clothing. Lady Ghost and Lord Death: A Love Story – Claudia Dain Lady Morgan Banfield does not want to be married; at least not for a long time. However, a meddling ghost may have other ideas. When she finds herself suffering from cold drafts and a forwardness unlike her has Morgan avoiding a certain gentleman and wondering what has gotten into her. The one thing she does not and will not consider is ghosts and finds those who do suffer as fools. Will the ghostly happenings of the next few days change her mind? Hal Mort, Viscount Blackwater, has no idea what possessed him to travel with a friend to the reading of a family member’s will. He attributes the pull to wanting to get to know his new stallion. Not believing in ghosts has him acting out of character when he becomes the object of their interest. Can he protect the lady they have targeted to become his wife and can he keep from falling in love in the process. An entertaining story by Claudia Dain that had me loving the volatile ghost love story that intertwined with the love between mortals.

    Romantic and spooky book!

    ​This is one of four books about Castle Keyvnor. Each book contains three romantic stories set against the spooky background of the Castle. The stories are slightly intertwined, yet each can be read as a stand-alone story. Claire Delacroix's Something Wicked This Way Comes: This book had a very intriguing start! We first see Lucien de Roye involved in a duel. He is set on revenge against the Marquis of Lyndenhurst, and used very serious magic win back his lost love's fortune . Sophia Brisbane, who has gone into hiding as a governess and goes by a different name, ends up traveling to Castle Keyvnor, where she finds Lucien again. What happens when you make a deal with a demon? Can you find happiness in the end or are you doomed? Jane Charles's Her Gypsy Lord: I was looking forward to this one, because I had met Lady Charlotte first in Vexed. She is looking for some adventure, and to get away from the watchful eyes of her brothers. She sneaks out to a local gypsy camp and meets Adam Vail, part-gypsy but also destined to be Viscount Lynwood. The spooky part comes in when it's revealed Charlotte looks like a woman who was murdered 200 years ago by Lord Tyrell. Only Adam is able to save her, but will it be too late? Claudia Dain's Lady Ghost and Lord Death: A Love Story: I loved this one! You have two ghosts, Nell and Roland, who are interested in two humans - Hal, Lord Blackwater and Lady Morgan Hambly. When the spirit world meets the real world, it makes for a fun and entertaining story! ​I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ​

    Once I started on the first story I was hooked. I would not be satisfied until I'd read the whole series. The love stories do not disappoint.
