Simpson hits one out of the ballpark with this fascinating novel in the tradition of Jude Deveraux's A Knight in Shining Armor. What woman doesn't dream of having her very own knight? Simpson gives the readers the good and the bad when two very different worlds collide, and she doesn't let up on the suspense until the very last page.

Tara Lewis and David Corbin are not only co-hosts of the reality show Fact or Fiction, they're also engaged. Tara follows David to Scotland so they can wed in his ancestral home but is shocked to learn that he's arranged for their marriage to be filmed as a ratings grabber.

When an accident occurs on the way to David's family home, he leaves Tara in a tomb while he goes for help. When Tara mistakenly releases knight Hugh Lachlan from his crypt, what follows are many tense days. Tara not only helps Hugh look for a lost book, she also tries to pull her wedding together as she and David grow apart. Throw in a disapproving uncle, an ex-girlfriend desperate to take Tara's place and a mysterious ghost, and Tara's hands are full! (LUCKY PUBLISHING, Feb., 255 pp., $14.99)
