    In 1785 England, Meleri Weatherby ends her betrothal to Lord Philip Ashton because she finds him cruel, dangerous, and repulsive. He gleefully agrees because he plans to marry his lover until his father threatens to disown if he fails to wed the wealthy Meleri. The Ashton family is near broke. When she learns about her ex-fiancé's plans, Meleri flees to Scotland. <P> On the way, she runs over Lord Robert Douglas. The Scottish nobleman is in England because he needs to marry quickly a wealthy English lady to satisfy his debts and is under the King's command to do so. When he learns that Meleri broke off with Philip, he offers to marry her because he hates her former fiancé, who raped and killed his sister. Meleri and Robert marry and begin to fall in love. Meanwhile, Robert's ancestral ghost visits Meleri and rapidly develops a loving grandfather-granddaughter relationship. However, Philip lurks in the background and the ghost has yet to reveal the hidden family treasures that will solve so much for the Douglas clan. <P> THE BRIDE OF BLACK DOUGLAS is an exciting, non-stop supernatural historical romance that simply runs out of gas. The story line is fun and entertaining through most of the book, but the climax loses momentum in spite of two wonderful lead characters and an insightful look into late eighteenth century Scotland and England. Sub-genre fans will finish this novel with the knowledge that Elaine Coffman is a very talented author worth reading, but this novel's ending leaves a bit of disappointment. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Couldn't Put it Down!!

    If you like a book with romance, mystery and humour, you will love this book. I read it in one day and found myself walking from one room to another without putting the book down. It's a great read!!

    Stupendous! Elaine Coffman was born to write.*****

    An excellent tale woven in time. Elaine blends an enchanting story of love, mystery and intrigue. This book is a must have for every library. I just couldn't stop dreaming of the story she wrote. Beautifully done! *****

    Haunting and beautifully written

    Exactly what I love-- a stubborn Scot and a headstrong English lass locked into a marriage of convenience. Beautifully drawn characters and a ghost with a sense of humor. An excellent read.
