Highland Rake, Book 3
Dougald MacNeill takes Lady Alana Cameron to his laird brother James’s Craigly Castle when he finds her roaming the heather on the MacNeill lands. But who has sent her there and why? Her uncle, laird of the Cameron clan, and warring with the MacNeill for years, has made a marriage arrangement with another clan and now that is even at stake.
Having witnessed her father’s death, and even believing he had returned her home when all along he had been dead, Alana discovers she has the gift, or curse, of seeing the newly departed and sometimes those who should have long ago passed over. Her own deceased brother continues to plague her, the rake, and now another, who is very much of the flesh, Dougald MacNeill, has her thinking marrying a rake might just have its benefits. Dougald’s sister, who is one fiesty ghost, has offered to help Alana keep Dougald in line if he thinks of even straying.
But who sent Alana on a fool’s errand in the first place to remove her from the Cameron’s lands and set her squarely in Dougald’s care, and who really killed her father and her brother, and what has it all to do with Alana? Will she and Dougald learn the truth before it is too late?
Yes!!! Lovely review for Highland Rake!
Not all of my Highlander series books have paranormal elements, but this one I had a lot of fun with when Alana, the heroine, can commune with ghosts. Can you imagine if they pestered you all the time, and you had to keep it a secret in medieval times? Well, today, you could pretend to be talking to someone on a cell phone. But back then?

This book is a delightful mix of things, Handsome devilish rogue of a highlander, Dougald. Our Damsel in distress Alana who can also see ghost which adds paranormal. Murder and mystery. There is a good story to this book.
Lady Alana is lured from her clan. The MacNeill’s find her on their land and take her to their castle. Her rescuer is Douglad MacNeill who has a reputation as a rake. I don’t want to get into spoilers because it will ruin it for you but the romance is hot. The ghosts can be comical sometimes and in with it all they have to solve why Alana’s brother and father were murdered and if some one wants her dead too!
If you like the old Highlander clan books with their feuds and male attitudes you will love this. Terry Spear is a great story teller.
Thanks to Pam, for loving the story!
Do you see the turtle in the swamp? This was at the Arboretum in Spring, Texas.
