Waiting for the Laird by Willa Blair

Widow Lara MacLaren hungers for the hunky architect she hires to restore her derelict Scottish manor, but is she ready for a relationship…and is Ian ready for her twins?

Ian Paterson is eager to awaken Lara's passionate side. Yet, if he reveals his ancestral claim to her estate, he risks losing her and his job. His clan’s history, lost over the years, may be hidden in the walls—along with a ghost waiting for the laird's return.

When they uncover a room full of Jacobite treasure, proof of his ancestry, Ian realizes he’s out of time. If the ghost is real, it could expose his secret and destroy his romance with Lara. Ian must convince her she and her twins are the future he truly wants.”

“Perfect Halloween Ghost Story: An ancient Scottish castle, hidden rooms with priceless treasures and a ghost. This heartwarming romance will keep you up reading all night.” Colorado Cowgirl
“It's been awhile since I've read a book that all I can think about is picking it back up every free minute! This book did just that. An added bonus is that this is a modern day love story. It is so hard to find great modern love stories based in Scotland.” KGin
“The mystery behind the manor and what secrets lay beyond the walls is beautifully written. The more I read, the more I wanted to read, so much so, I read late into the night. I couldn’t stop reading. There’s a fair share of conflict but such is the life of a single mother trying to juggle everything and still find time to fall in love. Realistic characters, sweeping romance and a paranormal mystery make this a must-read! Highly recommend!” N. N. Light
“LOVED this story. Could not put it down once I started. Fun read. Just a tad sexy but hardly anything that would shock today's teens.” Gatorfan
