"superb paranormal romance"

London tour guide Mara McDougall sees the delightfully looking bed at an antique shop and ponders how she can afford to buy it before she realizes someone is in it or at least the ghost of someone; no one else seems to notice the occupant. Sir Alexander Douglas lived in fourteenth century Scotland until he was betrayed by a member of the MacDougall clan, who killed him and stole his intended. All their descendents are his enemy.

Mara and Sir Alex meet up again in an ancient castle. He wants to hate her, but finds instead he desires her; worse he likes her sass. She, in turn, wants him, but also hopes to end the curse so he can go onto the next plane though that will leave her with mixed feelings; she sees no avenue for their love to bring them together as universal rules of time and space say otherwise.

This is a superb paranormal romance in which the actions and reactions of the lead couple insures that readers will believe in ghosts (and a few other things). The changing relationship between Alex and Mara make for a fine story line. He initially wants to destroy all MacDougalls and she prefers he just haunt someone else; over time their interactions change and soon love blossoms. Fans will enjoy the HIGHLANDER IN HER BED though the best moments are out of her bed.

She's fallen in love with an antique bed. But the ghostly Highlander it comes with is more than she bargained for...

Tour guide Mara MacDougall stops at a London antique shop—and spots perhaps the handsomest bed ever. Then she bumps into the handsomest man ever. Soon Mara can't forget the irresistible—if haughty—Highlander. Not even when she learns that she's inherited a Scottish castle.

Spectral Sir Alexander Douglas has hated the Clan MacDougall since he was a medieval knight and they tricked him into a curse—the curse of forever haunting the bed (the very one that Mara now owns) that was once intended for his would-be bride. But Mara makes him feel what no other MacDougall has—a passion that he never knew he'd missed.
