Golden-Haired, Most Fair, Prince Rod of Lachlan by Sherrie Hansen

If Prince Rod of Lachlan sounds like something straight from the pages of a fairy tale, you’re right.

When Katelyn O’Neal, a reluctant “princess” from Minnesota, inherits a castle from a great uncle she met only once, she views the whole ordeal as a huge bother, except that selling the castle to a rich developer will pay for a very expensive, experimental cancer treatment for her 12 year old niece, Kacie.

Rod MacKenzie, the illegitimate but rightful heir to Lachlan, has used his own time and money to take care of the castle and its magnificent gardens for years – despite the fact that his grandfather wrote him out of his will. Rod would love to live happily ever after in the land of his ancestors even though he’s always known it was an impossibility.

Add Laird Valan MacKenzie and the lovely Lady Rosemary, a pair of 500 year old ghosts who are bound to the castle by age-old curses, and would do anything to escape the place, and you have GOLDEN ROD, a two-week romp through a lifetime of legends that turns everything upside down.

Laird Valan and Lady Rosemary – 500 year old ghosts who desperately want to escape it.

  1. Castle, ghosts, disgruntled caretaker…what’s not to like? Maybe throw in a heaving bosom or two…

    • Well, the ghosts are trying to make a match between the legal heir and the rightful heir, and some of their plots involve some steamy storylines. No bosoms heaving, I’m afraid, but other titillating goings on aplenty.

  2. Sounds like my cuppa, Sherrie!!! Best wishes for tremendous success!!!
