Angus Macgregor has endured a lot in life. Mother passing when he was a small child, he also nursed an ill father to his last breath. But when he loses his one remaining relative, an uncle he’s never met, his existence is turned on its head forever. Bequeathed Clan Gregor Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Angus leaves Australia behind to take on the family business. It’s there he finds more waiting for him than he ever dreamed possible.
Daniel Ramsey is a man with secrets, none more dangerous than the fact that he can see what others can’t. When he meets one particularly handsome Australian, the attraction is immediate. Hesitant to let down his guard, his hand is forced when a former guest of the castle comes calling and attempts to stake a claim on the very man Daniel wants.
Spotting the one remaining part of the castle he’d yet to see, Angus stuck his head through the doorway to the large cloakroom directly behind the reception desk.
“What’s in there?” He glanced at Maddie, then pointed at the unmarked timber door with a wrought iron latch located between the clothing racks at the far end of the room.
Maddie brushed past Angus and reached into her jacket pocket, then held up a set of antique keys. “William’s library. We make sure to keep the door locked at all times in case any guests happen to stray back here.”
“Why’s that? He got dead bodies stashed behind the shelves or something?” Angus barked out a laugh while Maddie picked out the largest key of the bunch and smiled, opening the door before switching on the light. Angus made his way inside, then feasted his eyes on the huge space. Floor to ceiling shelves filled with books dominated one side of the room, while next to a large fireplace was a desk and chair with a fountain pen resting on a green leather blotter, a brass lamp and the same old-fashioned phone as the one in reception. Beneath the large picture window sat a black, leather studded couch.

L.J. Harris discovered that as much as experiencing pain, loss and betrayal can be devastating, capturing the feelings of anguish and loss that some of her characters have had to endure without firsthand knowledge would have proved difficult.
