Bride of the Mist
Draycott Abbey, No. 2  
By Christina Skye

    Kara Fitzgerald works for a bridal magazine. Hopefully, her next shoot will be at Dunraven Castle.The castle isn’t far from Draycott, and the Laird is a cousin to Nicolas (“Hour of the Rose”). The Laird refuses to rent his castle to anyone in the media—and with reason. Kara plans to talk him into it. When the Laird, Duncan MacKinnon, first meets Kara, he pretends to be someone else. Later, Kara’s psychic gift reveals MacKinnon’s true identity and the danger following him. After meeting Kara, Duncan is haunted by her beauty and her gift. After meeting Duncan, Kara is haunted by visions of centuries past: a voiceless young woman, a sheriff, and an unknown knight. Once again, the past is connected to the present and destinies are matched. Duncan and Kara face a man destined to hate the Draycotts and determined to kill Duncan. Their fates, as well as those of Duncan’s ancestors, are held in the balance until the very end. And let’s not forget the two that keep readers coming back: the guardians of Draycott—the ghostly Adrian and his gray cat Gideon. The two do their best to protect Draycott Abbey, Dunraven Castle and their occupants.

     Skye’s Draycott romances are a blend of suspense, the supernatural, and a mix of historical and contemporary romance. It’s a perfect blend that keeps the pages turning. The author mentions that the stories of Duncan’s nineteenth-century ancestors can be found in her previous titles (East of Forever, Come the Night, Come the Dawn). Pick up the first in either series and you’ll be hooked. For better enjoyment, read each series in order.
