CLICK TO PURCHASE! Ellie is unlucky when it comes to holding her man. She’s sworn off them now since her latest dumped her at the altar. Now she’s off to Scotland, taking her broken heart with her to visit her friend Jenny. While waiting for Jenny to pick her up in Glasgow, she is surprised to meet Chris. Chris was a one-night stand in Italy and the best sex in her life. She is also pleased to see that Chris hasn’t forgotten her either. But Chris isn’t the type to want to settle down. Still, Ellie is highly attracted to him. Jenny is pleased to see Ellie. Both are psychics and work in the field. Jenny is especially happy because she hopes that Ellie will help her. There have been some high energy readings coming from a house in Glasgow. It happens to be Chris’s house that he just inherited from his father. Now Ellie and her friends need to protect Chris and in the process she loses her heart to the handsome busker. Will she lose him to an unknown power that wants to possess him?

Ah…Marie Treanor, who pens such delicious stories, with great characters, an interesting and captivating plot and some really sensuous love scenes. I was caught on the first page and couldn’t stop reading until the end. Isn’t it great that a woman can swear off men when one has so badly used her? Cancelling the wedding because he had to run off with the secretary? Yes, but then falling hopelessly in love with the one man who just isn’t the right material for settling down with? Poor Ellie. But when you get know Chris and his talents…ahem…you can understand the poor girl. This talented author then throws in some lovely paranormal activity like levitation, mind reading, an evil spirit that wants to come back to the living and you have a story that begs to be read. I enjoyed the secondary characters very much and hope that we’ll hear more about Jenny and Charlie. That Charlie is a handsome, mysterious fella too. Ms. Treanor also gives you a flavor of Glasgow without too many ‘och eyes’ and the such. She throws in some typical slang to spice things up, but makes sure that the reader knows what is being said. In this way, we feel we are in Glasgow among the people.

Her fans will love this one and if you haven’t read any of this authors work, then I would strongly suggest you get online and download her books right away!
