"A winning time travel romance"

In 1382 on the Border, her half-brother and their father tell her to go with the Englishman because she has been bartered to forge an ally for the clan. They insist he will treat her right, but instead all he wants is the secrets of her father's keep. Since she knows nothing, the Englishman murders Iolanthe MacLeod even as she lies thinking will nobody remember her name. As she dies Iolanthe believes that one day her love will come to free her.

In 2001 Maine, Thomas MacLeod McKinnon feels he can do anything. His college degree at twenty, his Manhattan multimillion-dollar business, and his feats at mountain climbing prove he is right. He now owns a dilapidated Scottish castle, which he has decided to renovate. However, when he arrives at his new abode, Thomas surprisingly meets the ghost of Iolanthe. The Yank and the medieval Scottish spirit fall in love, but though he may be the man she waited for all these centuries, their chances for a relationship together seems impossible.

Lynn Kurland is attaining quite a reputation for her paranormal/time travel romances. Her newest entry, MY HEART STOOD STILL, is an engaging ghostly love story that her audience will devour. The tale is warm as Thomas struggles to find a way to be with his soul mate, who shares his desperate feelings. Ms. Kurland provides another powerful notch to her high standing among sub-genre readers with this entertaining novel that showcases her abilities to provide fans with quite a story.

For 500 years, Iolanthe MacLeod has been known as Herself, The MacLeod, leader of the clan of ghosts that haunts a ruined Border castle. In life, Iolanthe had been sold by her father to a foul Englishman who killed her when she would not betray her family's secrets. Before her death, no man had touched her; afterward, none even knew her name…and her dreams of love died with her. But now the castle she bought with her death is in the hands of an upstart colonial who intends to restore it, destroying what little peace Iolanthe and her loyal band of ghostly warriors know. The castle's new owner, Thomas McKinnon, loves nothing better than a challenge. The handsome American has already earned two degrees, made more than one fortune, and tested himself against Mt. Everest. He fully believes himself to be capable of renovating the ancient castle that is his latest enthusiasm. Even his recent visions of a ghostly Scotsman in Mickey Mouse ears have done little to shake his confidence. But he's about to meet his match in a lady ghost whose claim to his castle, and to his heart, he finds impossible to ignore....
