There's no such thing as perfection but being stuck in the Scottish Highlands with a shot at a dream comes close.
Caelan Stewart—Lord Everly—only son to Laird Breckenridge, is in Scotland on a hunting holiday, but when an accidental tumble on a hike gives him a badly sprained ankle and injures his wrist, the remainder of his holiday looks dull… until two red-haired scamps play Halloween tricks on him while he’s preoccupied by their attractive mother.
Widowed two years and having recently lost her parents, American Clara Snyder needs a distraction. Consenting to spend several weeks on an estate in the Highlands that will end with a lavish ball on All Hallows Eve, she barely settles into life there with her two small children when an intriguing Scotsman literally falls at her feet… and feelings she thought long dead come alive again.
With nothing to do except bedevil the intriguing widow and plan a few Samhain tricks, Caelan sets out to do just that. Though his antics amuse Clara, she falls under his spell. Desire grows, as does the bond between him and her children. But he’s not keen on offering up his heart again after the violent death of his first wife and she’s leery of loving someone else for fear they’ll leave. The only way to a happily ever after is to jump in with eyes wide open… and a bit of innocent, ghostly manipulation won’t hurt either.
