Graeme and Kendra stepped right into the depths of my heart. She is busy trying to calm some spirits in a northern Scottish village and trying hard to keep that fact from Graeme while he has some secrets of his own that he's trying to hide from her. They find themselves falling in love while shuffling their own secrets.

Allie MacKay takes you on a wonderful journey to a Scottish village named Pennard where you can smell the sea and feel as if you could reach out and touch your surroundings. Seco

I had a hard time with this one. This whole series actually is quite the roller coaster ride. Some of the books are absolutely fantastic and the kind you want to read again and just might. Then others just leave me flat. Just nothing. I wish we could do 1/2 stars here because this one is more of a 2-1/2. Maybe a little less of his "buttery burr" and more emotion would have made it better. The ending, when they have their "dark moment" it is essentially a non-entity. There was just no emotion to ...more

They Come Visiting

This story is about a landscape historian who can see and talk to ghosts. She was sent to Scotland to help a company that wants to buy the little town to supposedly preserve the past. He has lived in this town all of his long life. His job is to protect the town and its people from evil. When they met, it was instant attraction. This story dragged a little for me in places. Enjoy I did.
I'll be honest....I read this because:

1.) It was the last book left to read of an author that I've read before (at least under this pseudonym).
2.) I needed something light and "smutty".
3.) I love Scottish boys.

It wasn't too smutty, I'll say that.

Haunted Warrior by Allie Mackay
Grade: C-

“Now at last she understood why American women swooned over Scottish men. It wasn’t the long, proud history and heritage, all the flashing plaid and swagger. Nor was it the swinging kilts and the age-old-mystery of what was or wasn’t beneath them. Above all else, it was the accent.”

Kendra Chase has two jobs: one as a landscape historian and the second working for Ghostcatchers International. As someone who can speak to ghosts Kendra’s work for Ghostcatcher

Haunted Warrior by Allie MacKay, aka Sue-Ellen Welfonder is about the third book I have read by this author. This version of Haunted Warrior is the re-edited version of this book, and is supposed to have a lighter feel, with more myth and legend. I didn’t read the previous version, so I can not compare the two.

Kendra Chase is a ghost whisper, she helps those spirits that haven’t moved on, or still have unfinished business. She is sent to Pennard Village in Scotland to see if she can help some di

Different from most novels.......loved the story line, although I tend to gravitate to time travel stories, I thoroughly enjoyed this paranormal one.

Book Review- Haunted Warrior by Allie MacKay

Kendra Chase deals with the paranormal. She has been hired to commune with the ghosts of Pennard, Scotland. Many mysterious things have been occurring in the village as Scotland’s Past tries to move forward with their project. She is on the case secretly trying to figure out what is going on.
She first sees Graeme McGrath on Balmedie Beach. He appears first as an ancient highlander then dressed in modern day clothes by the bunkers. There is an instant

American Kendra Chase is walking along a beach in Scotland when she sees him, kilt and hair flying in the wind, looking like a wickedly sexy alpha male. But in an instant, he's gone. Then he's back, but the kilt is gone & he's in jeans. What? She might be more surprised, but in her profession she's seen some unusual things. She's a professional Ghostcatcher on assignment.

It's love, mist, and magic in Allie Mackay's recent novel, "Haunted Warrior." The sexy Laird of Grath Castle has been cursed with immortality and the responsibility of guarding an evil, magic-wielding, item that he keeps hidden deep in the stone of his ancestral home. Kendra Chase, the image of an all-American, girl-next-door arrives in the tiny fishing village of Pennard, Scotland for what appears as a restful vacation. However, the ghost-whisperer keeps secret her true intentions and identity ...more
Kendra Chase worked for Ghosthunters International. She was hired to work with Scotland's Past, a group working to restore a place called Pennard, a tiny fishing village in Scotland. The problem was that Pennard had ghosts that were causing problems with the work they were trying to do.

I have read Ms. Mackay's previous paranormal books (Highlander in My Bed, etc) and really enjoyed them. This is a companion book (which does mention one of the other books characters) and a very similar concept as her previous books.

The heroine Kendra, is essentially a ghost whisperer. She goes into historical areas and crosses/soothes the restless spirits. Usually so that new construction of some sort can go on. Beyond her ghost abilities, I didn't feel her character was well developed, unlike

I loved this novel . Allie Mackay writes such beautiful characters that come to life with each turn of the page and weaves magic with folklore you feel as if you are there. I also love how in every novel she includes a special animal companion for one of her characters.

Greame MacGrath is a guardian of an ancient relic that his clan has protected for generations that comes with its own spell for the guardian. MacGrath is determined to be the last of his line so he is trying to find ways to retur

This reissue/revision is by far SO!! Much better than the first dark version. From the first page Kendra and Graeme sweep you away to Scotland present and past! If you are a fan(you should be) of Allie MacKay/Sue-Ellen Welfonder you will be glad to see recurring characters! Hint: "Red Plaid Shoe Laces and a Little Red Fox" . If you aren't yet a fan you will be after reading Haunted Warrior! Guaranteed!

I had a hard time with this book. I only finished it; because I wanted to know how it ended for Kendra & Graeme. I have read a few others by Allie Mackay and enjoyed them, but this one just did not have the same appeal.

Haunted Warrior is book six in Allie Mackay's Highlander series. This book can be read as a stand a lone. Haunted Warrior was slow going through out the book. I never felt that connection between the two main characters Kendra & Graeme. It lacked that "Wo

Oh how I LOVE books by Allie Mackay!! This one especially, because I like the "ghosts" factor. I also LOVED Jock, but then who doesn't like dogs. !!
The story kept me engrossed to the point I missed sleep! (oh well, don't sleep much anyway!!)
The characters were romantic, challenging (will they/won't they?), and who could resist a strong Highlander, anyhow? When Kendra sees him on the cliff, I wanted to be Kendra. But the way the story is written, I 'WAS' Kendra.
I love the way Allie Mackay makes

You Can't Always Get The Marquess You Want is a really enjoyable read. It’s about two warring families the "Brant" and "Rooke" families with drama that we really do not what caused it or why the generations are feuding. We have Tempest Brant and Chance Rooke, Lord Fairlamb, who have meet quite by accident and are instantly attracted to each other.

I give this book 3 1/2 stars.

This was the first Allie Mackay book I have read since Highlander In Her Bed in 2007 or so. It was an enjoyable read. Allie Mackay's love of Scotland and its people comes through. Her descriptions of the countryside and the fishing village enable you to feel the mist on our face and smell the peat fires. You get a good feel for the people and the community and can sympathize with their feelings about plans for their village.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book I am not normally a paranormal reader so this was my first in this genre and I really enjoyed it. Kendra and Graeme are two strong individual characters each with their own task in hand. Hers to assist the angry ghosts as she is a Ghost Whisperer and his to protect Pennard as an ancient guardian just as his ancestors before him did.

This book was okay. I have read her other books and loved them all, but this one just didn't have the same appeal. It started off pretty well, with Kendra's feel for and interaction with the local ghosts. I had a bit of a hard time with her constant talking about wanting to kiss Graeme again. I got it right off - she was attracted to him, she didn't have to keep saying it. I would have liked to see more of her interactions with the ghosts, since that was why she was there.

An "okay" tale of a sleepy fishing village where ghosts & legend stop the bad guy from commercializing it. I would give this book 5*s for the idea of the story, but only 3*s for the reading of the tale. The author had a great storyline, it was just lost with way too many explanations of personal feelings or describing the scene. Most of the time I was paging through 3 pages of what one character was thinking before they got back to the dialog. It became frustrating for me. Once I got to chap ...more

This was an interesting mix of history, legend, magic and love. Great descriptions and well-written but then, everything I’ve read so far from either Allie MacKay or Sue-Ellen Welfonder is well-written and well-researched. In terms of the story itself, more interaction with the ghosts would have been great. As it is, it took some time before we even saw Kendra interact with a ghost. Less of how Kendra felt about Graeme – it became repetitive after a while. A little bit more of Graeme’s feelings ...more

Kendra and American ghost whisperer or calmer is trying to get to a much needed vacation and Graeme is protecting his village as his ancestors have before. They are both headstrong, Graeme just took my breath away. I have not read a paranormal in a long time and I am so glad that this book got me hooked again.

I loved this book! I really hope that Ms. Mackay keeps up with this series. This one is a bit different from the others in that it has a bit more to do with magic. I was so happy with the result of that. She has such a way with writing that makes you feel like you are standing there with the characters (or wishing you were) in a tiny fishing village or on the wind swept cliff of a castle ruin. This is one reason alone why I love her writing. She is an amazing storyteller. If you love your Highla ...more

By reading the description of this book, one may be misled as to what the main focus of the book is. This book is a romance novel. If you want to read about Kendra's interaction with ghosts and the bad guy, you do have to wait a long while into the book to get to the heart of the matter. I almost stopped reading around 50% of the book but wanted to give the book a chance. When the supernatural beings appeared more frequently and the heart of the story got underway, it was enjoyable to read. I li ...more
