Blurb:

Sometimes one lifetime is not enough…
American Mae Sutton travels to Scotland to investigate tormenting dreams that have plagued her since childhood. Once in the shadowy, misty land, she discovers a brooding Highlander—and a secret that threatens her very existence.

A dark castle ruin haunts her nightmares…
Mae discovers Moor Castle is the same ruin in her nightmares, and knows she must learn why she’s been drawn to Scotland and the crumbling castle that whispers her name. She experiences an intense and immediate attraction to Aidan Ramsay, conservator of the evil castle. She’s shocked to find out she is the spitting image of a Ramsay ancestor, and that maybe her nightmares are past-life memories.

Mae and Aidan have lived before, and the dark legacy that destroyed them once, may destroy them again…




Excerpt:

I would never forget my view of the ancient edifice that gloomy day. As I drew the car to a halt at the side of the narrow dirt road, I looked through the steady rain cascading down the windows of my rental car. The castle certainly deserved its sinister name.

Moor Castle.

Even the name evoked curious feelings of unease inside me. Situated on a high hill, the imposing structure shouted ancient history from every arrow slit window and every wrinkle in its face. With pitted, dark gray stone walls reaching skyward, it commanded notice. From a distance the beauty and the ugliness fascinated me.

Sinister.

Magical.

Beautiful.

Too many words bombarded my mind, and once again I wondered if the pills the doctor had insisted I take with me on this journey could mask reality enough to keep me sane.

I shifted the car into park, hesitating between venturing out and staying inside the car. Prickles of insecurity raced over my skin in goose bumps.

“Reality.” I snorted. “What a concept.”

I shivered, even though the car heater kept the auto interior toasty. Fear, plain and simple, edged up my spine. I recalled my now deceased Aunt Ethelfreda’s common refrain when I was a little girl and afraid of the dark. She’d sniff, then put her hands on her hips. “Oh, come on now, Mae. No sense in getting a case of the jimjams. Don’t be an idiot.” She’d always made fun of my belief in the supernatural.

I wanted to punch the memory of her disapproval into the next galaxy. “Stick it, Aunt Ethelfreda,” I said cheerfully. “You’re not here. I am.” I turned my full attention back to the huge structure before me.

Whole sections of the decaying castle remained intact, defying the ravages of time. More than seven hundred years of wind, rain and snow had carved into the stones, laying bare a million secrets and hiding many more. I hadn’t researched the castle’s history, but what I knew about fortresses like this made me appreciate the place with a grudging respect. The curtain wall remained intact in certain places, obscuring some of the inside buildings from view. From this distance, though, I could see the high arched entrance. The original drawbridge portion had obviously decayed long ago. I closed my eyes for a moment and flashes of remembrance came though. A hall window, a mural passage. A spiral staircase…a dip worn in the middle from the tread of many feet. The donjon that once had given the lord of the castle his shelter. I knew the great hall would stand roofless, with maybe the remnants of two or more giant fireplaces that had held roaring fires. How many battles had these scarred walls seen? How many sieges had they withstood? How many births, deaths, and murders had occurred here?

My eyes popped open. A cold pit yawned in my stomach as I swallowed hard. I glanced at my watch. I’d sat here more than fifteen minutes with my eyes closed, traveling the corridors of the castle with only my imagination to guide me.

As I stared at the pile of stones high on the hill, familiarity tickled at my memories. I’d seen Moor Castle as an eighteen-year-old exchange student nine years ago. More than once I’d been drawn to the castle, but something always held me back.

Fear.

Fear of something primitive and raw. Wounding and evil.

Now I had to take that first step toward showing myself that my dreams remained unreal. That I had made up horrible images in my mind that had no basis in fact.

I got out of the car and pulled my trench coat close about me. A compulsion drew me a few steps forward. Soon I’d discover the cold walls of Moor Castle held nothing baneful. Something stronger than apprehension, though, stopped me again.

Dread.

Why had this place haunted my dreams for so many years? Somehow, somewhere, there had to be a reason, a meaning behind the demons that possessed my nights.

I’d taken a leave of absence from my job to investigate Moor Castle for myself. Maybe I’d find peace exploring this dilapidated ruin.

I forced myself up the hill. Daylight faded as rain fell like an icy blanket.

I pressed on until I reached the top, a wide mesa somewhat naked and barren, the scraggly trees surrounding it in need of tending to bring them back to life.

I noticed how light seemed to disappear into the arched entrance without means of escape. Suddenly the wind picked up and the temperature dropped. Taking a deep breath, I pressed on, even though the trek up the steep hill had quickened my pulse. Or was that fear?

When the huge arch loomed above my head, cold penetrated my sweater, oozing into my bones with a chill, arctic and numbing. Trembling, I peered into the darkness, and as the rain lessened, shafts of weak light speared from a hole in the roof high above.

I proceeded. Up above, in the crumbling stonework, a fluttering sound echoed. I thought of the creatures of nightmares, flying on wings and snatching me away to dark lairs. A screech echoed all around me and I whirled, my apprehension escalating. Seconds later, a large black bird gave flight, turning away from the castle walls and sailing into the air until it looked like a tiny dark dot against the sky.

“There’s nothing to be afraid of. It’s just a bird, not a bat...or...” I whispered.

I glanced around me nervously. Yeah, right. Big, brave Mae. What would Aunt Ethelfreda think of me now? I could see her crinkled brow and piercing blue eyes condemning me for cowardice. Since I was three and Aunt Ethelfreda had adopted me after my parents had died in a car accident, I’d endured her belief that I somehow wasn’t “worthy.” I fell short, continually, in her estimation. I fought back frequently, though my ego took a nasty blow. Many dents still remained. Deep inside I hated myself for trembling like a frightened pup. A litany ran in my head, the same thing unkind children had yelled at me in grade school: Scaredy cat, scaredy cat. Mae is a scaredy cat!

I shoved aside disturbing childhood memories. Those children weren’t here now. My aunt wasn’t here now. In some ways this journey to Scotland proved those children and my aunt wrong. I could and would conquer these fears. Strength filled my limbs as I glanced around at the haunting beauty of the castle.

I hadn’t gone far into the grand foyer when I knew someone watched me.

I turned, my heart thumping with renewed alertness.

The man stood several yards away, almost hidden in a shadowy doorway. He stood with arms at his side and feet planted apart. His white poet shirt opened at the throat, giving me an enticing view of muscled chest sprinkled with dark hair. Snug black breeches were tucked into tall black boots and molded his legs. His wide mouth firmed into a tight line. A brisk wind blasted through his cascade of long, wavy black hair. Welded to the spot, I stared with unabashed curiosity at the strong planes of his face.

I took a breath, ready to call out to him in greeting. But I didn’t have a chance because suddenly he looked straight at me. His gaze turned sultry, hot, and welcoming. The moment drew out, long and surreal.

Behind me a crack like a gunshot sent me spinning around, my heart leaping. I threw myself sideways as a large stone missed me by inches, bouncing away to break into smaller pieces. My heart pounded as I looked back to the mysterious man. He’d disappeared.

“Hello!” I listened to my voice echoing in the cavern of the castle, but no answer came.

I walked about, certain he must be somewhere close. Within a few minutes, though, I had to wonder how he could have vanished so completely. A thought slipped into that part of my mind reserved for negative thoughts. Had I imagined him? Seen a ghost?

About Monique:

For as long as I can remember, I've had a boring, predictable life. I work at a low-paying job and have ho-hum missionary sex with my long-term boyfriend, who calls me "pear shaped" (and not in a good way). I've never been with more than one man or explored myself sexually. That's for sexy, skinny girls. Girls with exciting lives. Girls I'm not.

When a series of events send my life into a tailspin, I find myself at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, locking eyes with a gorgeous, sexy stranger who sends my heart racing. Our first night together is one I'll never forget. Or the next. Shockingly, he wants to pay me lots of money just to have me as his personal sex goddess. Best of all, he's not the only one.

Soon, I'm discovering my sexuality for the first time, caught up in the exciting, glamorous world of high-class escorting. I'm also discovering myself: the independent, sexy, confident woman I was meant to be. Trouble is, I can't give my body without giving my heart. I'm falling in love with more than one man, and they with me. I can't choose just one . . . Or can I?
