"Kendrick the ghost and Genevieve share a castle and more"
Genevieve Buchanan is a owner of a successful interior
design business who has always dreamed of knights in
shining armor and castles. But when she inherits a castle
in England she refuses it until her business falls apart.
Although she is unaware that the man behind her business
disaster is waiting in the castle to destroy her.
Kendrick de Piaget is an arrogant and charming 13th Century
Knight who was murdered in the castle Genevieve
inherited. He's haunted it for 700 years. His plan is
simple. When the last Buchanan is either dead or insane he
can get the title of the castle in his name and then he can
rest. Genevieve is the last sane member of her family,
thanks to his haunting abilities. So it should be easy
Genevieve's first encounter with Kendrick is wonderfully
comical. Please understand this is not a scary book.
She picks his room to sleep in which Kendrick doesn't
like. She hears thump, grumble. When she looks what she
sees is a huge man drenched in blood glaring evilly at her
with his arms reached out towards her, an arrow protruded
in his chest, and he said "Begone wench if you're life
means aught". And that's just what Genevieve wants to
do. She didn't want to stay in the house with the ghost
even if it is her dream castle. Luckily Worthington (the
Butler) convinces her to stay, that there's nothing to
fear. There are so many funny scenes that I laughed till
I cried. Genevieve realizes Kendrick can't hurt her. He
does scare her several times. In one scene she wants to
know if he can get through a locked door. He's baffled why
she's asking him that. When all he's wanting is for her
to leave. While he ponders that she goes into her/his room
and locks him out. Its hilarious. She just ignores him
which he doesn't like, and then she walks right through
him. Its full of laughs.
Kendrick and Genevieve come to a truce. They're going to
share the castle. They watch TV together (Kendrick loves
football). Kendrick tells her about his life and family
and she meets the assortment of ghosts who are under
Kendrick's command, including his best friend, Royce, and
servant, Nazir, who were murdered with him (some of these
ghosts appear in Lynn's historical books, so its before
their death, including Kendrick of course).
Kendrick's funny, he likes to be the center of attention,
he definitely doesn't like to be ignored, and they fall in
love. Genevieve fears physical intimacy. But she's
comfortable with Kendrick, although he's big, bossy,
arrogant, and sometimes gruff, he's a ghost. Nothing can
happen right? Or is it possible Kendrick can have another
chance at life considering his was stole from him and can
he help Genevieve overcome her fears.
I wish I could do this book justice, but I know I can't.
The humor is incredible. The love story is wonderful and
the ending is fantastic. This is my all time favorite
Paranormal Romance and it most definitely has a happy
