When ghostwriter Jenny Ryan is summoned to the Scottish Highlands by Sholto MacNab – retired adventurer and Laird of Cauldstane Castle – she’s prepared for travellers’ tales, but not the MacNabs’ violent and tragic history. Lust, betrayal and murder have blighted family fortunes for generations, together with an ancient curse. As members of the family confide their sins and their secrets, Jenny learns why Cauldstane’s uncertain future divides father and sons. But someone resents Jenny’s presence. Someone thinks she’s getting too close to Alec MacNab – swordsmith, widower and heir to Cauldstane. Someone will stop at nothing until Jenny has been driven away. Or driven mad. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Especially a dead woman.
I hope I’ve got your attention! Linda Gillard’s latest release promises to keep her reputation as an author with a finely honed talent for dealing with mystery/romance alive and hopping. And what about that cover? Talk about a hit!
I first met Linda, via social media through The Alliance of Independent Authors. She was so generous with her time answering my questions on the Alliance’s members only Facebook page that I got curious about her. I downloaded and read her novel, A Lifetime Burning. After that I was hooked by the ability of Linda’s words to wrench my emotions, paint a breathtaking landscape and tell a darn good yarn. The Glass Guardian and House of Silence soon found a home on my Kindle.
Linda has agreed to do a guest spot on my blog later in February. She will share some pictures of Scottish castles and talk about her inspiration for writing Cauldstane. I can’t wait.
