[AtoZ] 4.5 stars -- Spirit of the Knight by Debbie Peterson

Oh my! Spirit of the Knight was a delightfully wonderful surprise. It had been ages since I read a ghostly romance. Add in Scottish knights? Oh yes, I was in!
The Gist: Mariah has been tasked with painting a castle for an art exhibit. When she arrives she finds it's inhabited...by a herd of 700+ year old ghostly Scottish knights. Including one that she's somehow been sketching since she was a child. 

I loved Mariah and Cailen. They're both wonderful. She's incredibly talented and kind hearted. Dedicated and open minded. And Cailen. He's everything you could want in a hero. He's a good man. Honorable and charming.

Their romance was so sweet. They're fated. Pure and simple. These two were meant for each other. I loved seeing them get to know each other. Offer support in different ways. It's kept fairly PG with just some creative kissing (because ghost/human thing happening) but it was romantic and lovely. And how it worked out in the end...perfect.

There's some intrigue along the way, too. How 50 knights became trapped in a castle for centuries along with mysterious female ghosts they couldn't see. Was dark magic involved? It was curious and interesting and kept me guessing as to how things went down centuries ago and how things would work themselves out in the present day.

All in all, Spirit of the Knight was a lovely give-you-all-the-feels romance that warmed the heart. I'd love to see the other knights finding their romances, too.



((Thanks to Sophia Rose for the recommendation!))
She fell deeply in love with him in the early days of her childhood. And in return, she captured his heart the moment he first cast gaze his gaze upon her...

Renowned artist Mariah Jennings, hired to paint a thirteenth century Scottish castle, gets the shock of her life when she encounters the handsome knight who has dominated a lifetime of portraits and sketchbooks. But Sir Cailen Braithnoch is no ordinary ghost, nor did he suffer an ordinary death. Magic of the blackest kind cast a pall over the knights centuries ago. As the ghost and his lady seek to unravel the paradox surrounding his death, black arts, otherworldly forces, and a jealous rival conspire against them.
