"Moonrise". Former Crusader Knight, Navarre the Wolf plans to kill his former friend Adrian the ghost guardian of Draycott Abbey for betraying him. Collateral damage is acceptable to Adrian who casts a spell that will kill everyone inside by moonrise. The lone human resident is FBI agent Sara Nightingale seeking clues to a missing treasure, but instead meets Navarre and Adrian.
These are two entertaining Draycott romantic fantasies with Christmas Knight being a 1998 reprint and Moonrise a novella. Fast-paced and filled with strong characters especially lead protagonists in conflict and love Christina Skye casts a spell on her audience with the coupling of the new and the old.
The only downside....as soon as I finish the latest book, I'm missing everyone and looking for the next one!
I will admit, at first, I wasn't that drawn into 'Christmas Knight'. Unlike the other Draycott stories, this one was set in the small Scottish village of Glenbrae for 99% of the story. Only at the very end did the characters visit Draycott Abbey. It's different from the premise of her other Draycott stories. We don't have a back story of the past where the lovers were torn apart, finally to be reunited in the present day. It would be hard to accomplish that as Ronan McLeod is from the past, the 13th c. to be exact and thrust by magic to present day Scotland.
We also don't have characters that are very successful and at the top of their field. Sorry, but it's tiring to read about a heroine who in her early twenties is already world class expert on something, or have a hero who is the best body guard or is the best at anything he does. Don't get me wrong. I love all the Draycott stories, but the majority of them follow the same formula and premise - wealthy, handsome, tough as nails, with a heart of gold Alpha male meets, and falls in love with a drop-dead, gorgeous twenty something female who is a world class expert on wine, paintings, textiles... etc. In this story, Hope isn't rich. In fact she is struggling financially throughout most of the story. And all Ronan has is the armor on his back, his sword, his horse, and a few coins and trinkets. It was a nice change to read something different.
Here, Ronan is a hard, battle weary knight, returned from the crusades to finally settle in the house and lands bequeathed to him by the hated English king he was forced to serve. Instead of finding peace, he time travels to the future and meets Hope the new owner of his house in 1998.Read more ›
Christmas is the season for miracles and Hope O’Hara desperately needs one. If she doesn’t find a way to solve her financial difficulties fast, creditors will take her house. She needs paying guests to rescue her. Instead, a real knight, Ronan MacLeod, appears. A timeless love awaits Hope and Ronan, if only he can prevent a fatal accident that threatens her life and their love.
The past, the present and the future, as Albert Einstein said, all happen at once in MOONRISE by Christina Skye. Sara Nightingale, an FBI agent, takes a much-needed break at Draycott Abbey. While mourning her colleague’s death, she meets Navarre. A warrior from the crusades, he needs to complete his dangerous mission through time. Then he meets Sara, who makes him feel that time stands still. A love to last through all the ages is theirs to keep if only fate allows them to have their chance under the MOONRISE.
Christina Skye never disappoints her readers. DRAYCOTT EVERLASTING kept me intrigued from beginning to end.
