'A quick feel good when you feel those Sunday blues!' -- ***** Reader review
'Really loved this book, it just flowed along, its twists enthralled me, especially the ending - it was not what I expecting, well done Jilly' -- ***** Reader review

If Emily hadn't gone to Annie Richmond's party, she would never have met the impossibly irresistible Rory Balniel; would never have married him and been carried off to the wild Scottish island of Irasa to live in his ancestral home along with his eccentric mother, Coco, and the dog, Walter Scott.

She'd never have met the wild and mysterious Marina, a wraith from Rory's past, nor her brother, the disagreeable Finn Maclean; never have spent a night in a haunted highland castle, or been caught stealing roses in a see-through nightie...

Yes, it all started at Annie Richmond's party.
