Overview

The Laird by Sandy Blair

A multiple award-winning paranormal time travel fiction set in medieval Scotland, The Laird contains alpha male Highlanders, ghost, action, suspense, humor, drama, history and romance.

Cursed on his death bed centuries ago, the laird of Castle Blackstone, Duncan MacDougall, wanders the echoing halls of his island bound home as a ghost. Knowing only one woman has the power to set him free, he follows his castle's newest mistress with great interest as she tours her inheritance for the first time. Could this plain, odd woman from across the sea be the one?

Raised in the New York foster care system, street-wise catering director Beth Pudding isn't easily frightened. But then she isn't alone in her new home. A handsome specter with piercing blue eyes is following her as she evaluates the wisdom of keeping her inheritance, a decrepit island-bound castle. Who is he? And what does he want? Her hunt for answers soon takes both on a journey of discovery neither could never have imagined.

I love the story of Duncan and Kathy, it's a wonderfully romantic story that I've read time and time again. I've gone through two paperback books, so I can't tell you how happy I am that it's finally been released as an eBook. I hope everyone enjoys the story as much as I have.

The Laird was a wonderful surprise. This inexpensive book turned out to be a great read. The full-length book with good character development and story-telling had me laughing out loud at times while reading.

Duncan MacDougall, Laird of Castle Blackstone was cursed to haunt the castle until he finds a woman that he could love and make her fall in love with him in his own time. When Beth Pudding inherits Castle Blackstone and finds it haunted she doesn’t shrink away. Raised in foster care, this is the first home she has had that is her own. If it’s haunted she’ll just get to know the ghost and hopefully they can live together companionably. As she proves her mettle Duncan thinks she may be the one to break him from his curse and slides his family ring onto her finger. She travels back in time until she finds herself the bride of Duncan in his own time. There were several things I liked about this novel. First is our heroine Beth. She has never been loved. She has serious self esteem issues from her years in foster care. She was always passed over for adoption and one of her foster parents made her feel bad about her looks. She was not the beautiful heroine who gets transported back in time and because of her beauty is loved by all. This was a girl who had to work for everything. She worked hard at her job and rose up through the ranks in catering because of that hard work. Duncan saw those attributes in modern time, but when she transported back it was her looks that people talked about, until she started to prove herself again through hard work. I liked Beth a lot. The second thing I liked was that it was a time travel novel. Those are fun! If the characters are bright, they take their knowledge from modern times and use them to better their surroundings. Beth did this and it made everyone love her. The third thing I liked was Duncan. It didn’t take him long to see her for her worth. He was also a handsome Scottish guy in a kilt which doesn’t hurt a romance at all! I love discovering older books that have several novels in the series out. This book was written in 2016 so now that I know I like the writing I get to play catch up with the series, yay!

I loved all of it and simply wish that Beth and Duncan Macdougal's story was longer. Highly recommend to anyone who loves historical romance....especially those of us who have fallen in love with the Outlander series.

I really enjoyed this story. I'd have given it 5 stars but there were too many typos for that kind of rating. I will be checking out more of this authors stories.

This is a wonderful, thrilling roller-coaster ride of a book, but with this caveat: someone needed to edit it. There are so many misspellings and structural issues, including syntax that is terrifically disturbing and takes away from this story. There appear as well to be omissions that create confusion enough to get in the way of the story. A book with such an amazing concept, so worth telling, so worth reading, deserved far better treatment and respect. My rating is affected detrimentally due to the plethora of issues with the writing.........this almost seemed like a first draft, a rough first draft, and which would have been taken care of by both the author and her editor.

Couldn't put it down. A well-written tale of Highlanders and time travel, the classic Cinderella/Ugly Duckling tale. Kept my interest from page to page with engaging characters and good storyline. Some editing errors, especially near the end, but not enough to detract. Will definitely be getting the next in this series.
