A Ghostly Tale Of Forbidden Love:

5 Stars for Madeline Martin!! This novella was so good I read it in one sitting. If you have not read one of her books you are truly missing out! She has a way of making her character come alive with Gavin, Senara, Edana, a ghost named Balthasar and even the horse named Norbert.

Gavin only gave his first name when meeting Senara for the first time on their way of Castle of Park. Senara is going there to be the wicked Aunt Edana maid as Gavin is the Laird. Can Gav

I have read two of these stories individually and I'm looking forward to reading the third one. These are amazing stories from an amazing author! Here are my reviews of the two already read books:
OMG! What an incredible book. At times it was heart-breaking. At others it was uplifting. You can't help but fall in love with the characters. They have depth and their stories pull you in and don't let you go. The history of the English dominating the Scottish people and how they

This novella was previously part of the Halloween anthology "Once Upon a Haunted Castle."
Madeline Martin doesn't dissappoint in this Ghostly Tale!

Hoping to ease the financial burden of her family, Senara takes a position as a ladies maid at Castle Park. She has no desire to marry, only to save enough money to buy her young brother a knighthood... She's an honorable sister and daughter, always putting family before herself. But Senara gets more than she bargained

Read all three books in one sitting, as stand alones. Couldn't ask for a better box set with these stories. I'm never let down with Madeline's books. She writes about strong women that even in their circumstance, get their HEA!
