When a gorgeous "ghost" visits his bedchamber, his curiosity--among other things--is aroused.

His plan might have worked, too, had he not been haunted by visions of a seductive Scottish sprite and the dream that man's castle could somehow become his home.

Sarah never had her marriage annulled. Isn't it just her bad luck that Nick now finds himself in need of a wife?

Now back in Britain, his sisters' weddings on the horizon, and haunted by a woman he never truly left behind, he is ready to tackle the most dangerous and daunting task of all—seducing his skeptical bride.
