REVIEW

"Hot, Sensual combined with Ghostly Encounters"

In the second stand-alone book of Deborah MacGillivray's - Sisters of Colford Hall series, this top selling author turns up the flame in keeping up the sensual stimulation she ignited with the first book THE INVASION OF FALGANNON ISLAND.

While his elder brother Desmond is launching a takeover attempt on Falgannon Island as revenge and ruination on the Montgomerie family's empire, Jago Mershan is sent to the other side of the pond to launch the takeover on the Montgomerie's assets in Kentucky. All seemed simple enough until Jago got an up close and personal look at the very sleek and unbelievably sexy Asha Montgomerie. Nope — not even the spooky paranormal happenings at Asha's Windmill Cafe were going to scare him off -- for after one look Jago was primed and ready. Ready to take Asha for the ride of a lifetime in which both would feel the thunder of an exciting sensual journey.

*** For those of us who grew up in the 60's this very hot and sensual read is going to be a phenomenal treat as the memories and the music of my teen years all came rushing back. MacGillivray's story of the present day passionate love affair between Asha and Jago, set against the backdrop of the ghostly lovers, Tommy Grant and Laura Valmont making their afterlife home at the Windmill Café is emotionally poignant. Having Asha experiencing flashbacks to the other couple's tragic love story and murder; along with the ghostly antics of her decades old Wurlitzer continuously playing the romantic ballad, "Tell Laura I Love Her"... complete with other tunes from the 60's was a truly clever strategy. Peppering the story with a set of quirky and lovable secondary characters (including a mischievous cat) plus humorous and titillating dialogs kept the pace lively to continue reading into the wee hours of the morning.

In essence, Ms. MacGillivray not only writes her stories hot and steamy but treats readers to a gifted lyrical voice. Impeccably written, her characters spring to life bringing the reader ringside to feel all the intrigue, passion, and love. Book two in this entertaining Sisters of Colford Hall series is definitely stand-alone but I guarantee it will have the new reader scurrying about for book one and anxiously awaiting the next in this series.

SUMMARY

A Storm's Coming...

It was all part of the plan. While his brother was in Scotland dethroning the Lady of Falgannon, Jago Mershan was headed to Kentucky. There he would do his share in avenging his father on the Montgomeries. Only, there was a monkey wrench in the works

Just looking at his alleged enemy's granddaughter made Jago think of his classic black '67 Harley Electra Glide, a motorcycle with clean lines and sleek curves that promised the ride of a man's life. Asha was all woman--and the only woman for him. He'd bet she could go from zero to one hundred in the blink of an eye...and not even her claims of paranormal happenings in the diner she ran could put him off. He knew magic: He had a special name for the sights, the sounds, the tastes and smells of that perfect ride. There might be a storm coming, but it was one of passion, and together he and Asha would be...
