Bridge of Dreams. In 1794, the fifth Earl of Ashton Gabriel Montserrat disappeared soon after he was accused of killing his fiancé Geneva Russell. Five generations of earls later, Dominic Montserrat finds Gabriel's remains along with a case of rare Sauternes wine inside a recently discovered secret room in Draycott Abbey. To inherit the wine, Gabriel must spend a week with Geneva's descendent Cathlin O'Neill at Draycott Abbey. Neither is prepared for the attraction between them nor the tragic nightmares starring their star-crossed ancestors that haunt them.

Enchantment. In 1991 Kacey Mallory comes to Draycott Abbey searching for a valuable missing rare painting. There she meets the current earl Lord Nicholas who she is attracted to and he seems to reciprocate her deepest feelings. However, she also wonders why he is her costar in her dreams and nightmares because they feel so real as if they are memories not fantasies.

This is a reprint of two Christina Skye's delightfully haunting Draycott Abbey tales. If you have not read them or have back in the 1990s, these pass the test of time as they remain some of the better romantic fantasies available.

I had these stories when they first came out and donated them to the library. When this pair showed up I had to have them back for my own library. I was not disappointed when I reread them. Wish the entire Draycott group would be printed in this pairs format! I would recollect them all.

Adrian and Giddeon are lovable. I re-discovered these books recently and recommend them. Light reading but fast and entertaining plots.

Enjoy it.

So far this one is my favorite, Bridge of Dreams. I have admit Cathlin came across as rather rude at first. I wanted to dislike her but then her story of her mother's death and what she endured emotionally changed my thoughts. Even though not much is said about Dominic because he retired from his dangerous work, I liked his quiet, protective, moody self. However, what sealed the deal for me was the story of Gabriel and Geneva. It was heart breaking to see their love cut way too short. Oh and the letters. . . :'(

Twohundred years ago, two Draycott brothers fought over the same woman, and she was torn between them. She tried to run away, but one of them followed her, and they both died when a part of the cliffs collapsed. Now Adrian, Viscount Draycott, is still haunting and guarding his beloved Abbey still. When the bell tolls thirteen times instead of twelve, he will be wandering the battlements with his gray cat Gideon at his side …

Nicholas Draycott, the current Viscount, will have a chance to right the things that went wrong in the past, and in his own childhood when his brother died, but only one chance! Nicholas has escaped captivity and torture in Thailand by one of the worst criminals ever, and now his henchman are convinced he stole something valuable from him, and are after Nicholas again. He is getting threats on the phone, and two valuable paintings have been stolen from the gate house. And now a possible unknown Whistler has been discovered in the attic, it needs to be authenticated. But when the art appraiser shows up, Nicholas thinks she is just another nosy journalist and intends to teach her a lesson, by acting as if she is the escort he ordered …

His plan backfires though, and he will have to eat some crow to have Kasey agree to stay and work on his painting. He knows she will be in danger from the thugs while she is staying, but thinks he can protect her.

Kasey has never felt about a building before, like she is feeling for Draycott Abbey, she feels like she is finally come home. Everything is kind of familiar, and she gets visions of living her before, of danger and heartache. Just like Nicholas is having, he knows Kasey, and he won’t let her walk out of his life again… Neither will the Ghost, and if these two stubborn people need some help to acknowledge their feelings for each other, so be it …

I enjoyed this first story in the series, and was at first disappointed that Nicholas would have such a short one. After all, the Abbey and its inhabitants are the focus for the whole series. But I was satisfied in the end, and happy with their romance. Although I don’t always like it that they are destined to fall in love as they messed up in the past and meet again, reincarnated.

Kasey is not a pushover, and she gives Nicholas a very hard time on what he did. But she does want to authenticate the Whistler, it is her area of expertise and she is very exited about it. So if she has to put up with this blasted Lord for a while, so be it. She is an independent American, and the best at what she does. So he will have to deal with her on her terms. Nicholas is a real tortured hero, he dislikes being hounded by the press for what happened during his months of captivity, and he wants out of his life as a government agent. Of course he doesn’t want to tell them all about what happened there either. But he does need their help now the thugs are after him again. And to keep his woman safe, he will do whatever it takes.

I liked them together, but I do grow tired of the instant attraction trope a bit. Why should history repeat itself?

There is a lot of danger and intrigue in this series, but for me, the Ghost just steals the show.

7 stars.

I'm looking forward to reading more of this series.

If you are into reading series as I am this book is a must. What a tale is woven and after reading about the Draycott family, I find I have fallen in love with Adrian and his cat Gideon. Couldn't we all use protectors such as them. All of Christina Skye's Time Travel Series is worth reading. You wont be disappointed. Enjoy
