Shake Off the Ghost by Michaela Wright
I loved this book! Forever a Michaela Wright fan! It's like a Modern Scottish Pride and Prejudice! WANTED: Housesitter for Cavendish House, an expansive medieval manor in the Highlands of Scotland. Must love country living and have maintenance skills. Decent pay for right applicant. Sounds spectacular, doesn't it? Sadly, what the ad should've said was - WANTED: Idiot willing to live in abject misery for two months in the middle of nowhere Scotland. Must love ten-year-old dust bunnies, complete isolation, and have the courage to weather the nightly visits of the Blue Lady - the resident ghost. Great job for the right sucker! And even that couldn't prepare me for the Cavendish heir, Branson Douglas. Branson is infuriating! Stubborn, smug, and worst of all, infuriatingly handsome. My god, that smile! Branson doesn't want me around and makes no secret of it, but there's one thing I have that might help him save Cavendish House from the auction block - I'm a force of nature with a hammer. Now, it'll take us both working together, day in and day out to get it done. If only I can keep from falling for the handsome bastard between now and then. With every mystery of Cavendish we uncover, Branson's secrets come to the surface, and soon I see a whole new side to this beautiful creature - secrets that make my heart helpless to him. The way he looks at me - am I right to think he wants me too, or will the worst house-sitting job I've ever had turn into the hardest goodbye I'll ever have to say?"
