Overview

Award-winning and USA Today bestselling author Lynn Kurland “consistently delivers the kind of stories readers dream about.”* Now, she pens a wonderfully romantic tale about an eight-hundred-year-old ghost and the modern woman who turns his plans for a peaceful afterlife upside down…

When Victoria McKinnon’s brother offers to finance her production of Hamlet, she leaps at the chance. She can’t imagine anything better than staging Shakespeare’s masterpiece in an honest-to-goodness English castle. There’s just one problem: the place is haunted by a grumpy, gorgeous Highland warrior who’s furious that anyone dares to invade his home.

Connor MacDougal has no intention of relinquishing his authority over Thorpewold castle to anyone, let alone a McKinnon. But when he catches a glimpse of the beautiful intruder, suddenly he can’t help but wonder why it’s taken eight hundred years into his afterlife to find the love of a lifetime…

    terrific paranormal romance

    Producer Victoria McKinnon is exhilarated that her wealthy brother Thomas is allowing her to produce Hamlet at his Thorpewold Castle in England. Victoria thinks a genuine old castle adds flavor to the staging of the Shakespearean masterpiece. --- However, Thomas failed to inform Victoria of a minor problem, Connor MacDougal, the grumpy resident ghost who not only opposes people especially women because he was betrayed by his wife when he was alive eight centuries ago he also is irate that they plan to butcher the Bard. Victoria is not one to back down from a specter, but is outraged that her sibling failed to warn her. Still on with the show, but instead of causing further trouble, Connor finds himself attracted to Victoria and wants to help her achieve her goal because he finally has met his true love alas there is a slight problem as she is mortal and he is dead. --- Few writers if any can merge humor with the supernatural inside a star-crossed romance as well as the incomparable Lynn Kurland can consistently does. If you believe that just try this novel, MUCH ADO IN THE MOONLIGHT, or Ms. Kurland¿s terrific time travel tales like DREAMS OF STARDUST you will be a fan after reading any of those. Her latest entry is a terrific paranormal romance starring a crusty creaky ghost and the enthusiastic human female who brings him to life for the first time in his existence. Sub-genre fans will curl around this one sitting treat. --- Harriet Klausner

    Must read Much Ado

    I love Lynn Kurland writings and this book is as great as the other books she has written that I have read. It gives you ghosts and time travel, all in one book and I wanted so to step into the book and be a part of it. I love the characters and the description of the Scottish landscape. I will read it again in the future, so I can visit the past. I LOVED IT ! ! So will you.

    Fun & Entertaining but not for newbies!..

    The latest Romantic fantasy book from Lynn Kurland. The story is about Victoria McKinnon who was a sister of Thomas McKinnon (appeared in LK's previous book, 'My heart stood still'). Victoria is a fun, spirited young woman with determination. Her sister, Thomas had lent her an old english castle for her new show, Hamlet. One thing Thomas didn't tell her was, along with a perfect set for 'Hamlet', came a whole garrison of medieval ghosts!. On the top of that was Conner McDougal, a new laird of the keep who took one look at Victoria and decided he wanted her for his own rather than scared her away from his castle. The storyline was mainly about how the relationship grew between Victoria and the handsome ghosty laird.. and finally Victoria set out for a quest trying to be with a man she loved. The book is every entertaining if you're familiar with LK's previous works.. although I must say, it a little lacks of some charms just like we saw in LK's 'Stardust of yesterday' or 'A dance through time'. However, if you never know Lynn Kurland and just browsing around for something fun to read, just don't buy this book.. at least.. not yet. It can be very confusing when stands alone, with all the older characters from her previous book popping up. But if you want to try, I recommend you to start out with, at least, a couple of LK's previous work especially, 'A Dance through time' and 'My heart stood still'... and a couple of her novellas if you can find it, until you get a grip of what's going on which will ensures you the maximum entertaining... But by overall, although it's not the best of Lynn Kurland, it's still a good company for your resting day.

    Much Ado In the Moonlight 4.5 stars

    Victoria McKinnon is delighted to get the chance to go to England where she will produce Hamlet in her brother's castle. Moreover, she will get the chance to work with noted actor Michael Fellini. That is just the surface of what will happen to her almost as soon as Victoria arrives. Her brother's castle is haunted by four ghosts, one of whom is not all that pleased to have her there. Connor MacDougal is annoying, grumpy, and a scoundrel he is also magnficent, and despite obvious barriers, he and Victoria begin to fall in love. However, the only way she can actualize that love is by repeating her brother's daring mission to the past and rescuing her love before he can die, then bringing him forward in time. Of course, the Connor of the past won't remember her, and could think she's a witch. But, if her bone headed brother could do it to get a wife, then surely Victoria can, can't she? ..................... ***** Lynn Kurland smoothly mingles time travel and ghosts into a story that is sad, fun, and uplifting all at once. This is a pure delight to read. Old friends from her earlier works reappear, but you don't need to have read their stories to enjoy this one. You can catch up while waiting for the next. *****

    OK ... much like all the others

    When I started reading this book, I was a little confused. It felt like I had read it before ... the characters (ghosts) were pretty much the same as in any other story like this. The names of the ghosts were all familiar because this is a series of stories, so yes, I probably had read some about them in the other stories. I had to force myself to keep reading because I thought I had read it all before. Once I figured out that this was a different story, it is very much the same story line ... ghosts - castles - mortals. I haven't finished it yet. I will finish it, though. I can never start a book and not finish. But, it is taking me a while to get through it ... I know what's going to happen in the end because all these stories are the same. I just need a distraction, so I read. All-in-all, it's an ok book. I'll think twice about buying from a series again unless I get them all at once.

    Good book, but not Lynns best

    I was expecting much more from the story of Connor and Victoria. After reading Jennifers and Nicks story I was anxious to read this one. Although it was good, it just didn't have the action that I have loved in some of Lynn's other books. I also was hoping that Fellini would get what was coming to the scumbag! I did enjoy seeing Victoria's brother return in this book and Jamie MacCleod too. It is a good book and I enjoyed it as I have with all of the Lynn Kurland books.
