Cash Fraser is planning revenge, and to get it he needs the perfect woman. So he hires her. Abigail Butler has lost nearly everything in her life and she's about to lose the home she loves.
Cash meets Abby, who is posing as a paid escort, and the minute he does he knows he's willing to pay for more than Abby being his pretend girlfriend. A lot more. Abby needs the money or the last thing that links her to her dead family and husband will be gone. The deal is struck, but both Cash and Abby get more than they bargained for.
Cash realizes very quickly that Abby isn't what she seems, and while he changes strategies, Abby discovers that Cash's legacy, Penmort Castle, is like all the tales say - very, very haunted. Making matters worse, the ghost in residence wants her dead.
Abby's found herself in the battle of her life, so she enlists Mrs. Truman, her nosy neighbor; Jenny, her no-nonsense friend; Cassandra McNabb, white witch and clairvoyant with a penchant for wearing scarves (and lots of them); and Angus McPherson, dyed-in-the-wool Scot (which means he hunts ghosts in a kilt) to fight the vicious ghost who has vowed that she will rest at nothing to kill the true, abiding love of the master of Penmort.

Great book nearly ruined by poor narration
Romance plus ghosts. FYI - the haunting in this story takes a while to get to. It's not really creepy or spine-tingling, so if you're looking for something like that, this might not be for you. The ghosts operate a bit more like actual characters.
I actively avoid Abby Craden. She cannot do accents to save her life. There were times when Jenny (Abby's friend) sounded Australian or South African, Mrs. Truman was incredibly annoying, and I have no idea what kind of accent Cash had but it wasn't Scottish (or even a hint of it). Unfortunately, Ms. Craden has narrated additional books in this series so I am unable to completely avoid her. This is incredibly disappointing. A good narrator should add to the story being told, not distract me from it.
It's Kristen Ashley. Of course I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting - even with a bad narrator.
Penmort Castle, and the rest of the books in this series, are a lot of fun. If you're familiar with Kristen Ashley, you know what to expect. Just sprinkle in some ghosts.
Oh, those accents!
Probably no. I had enjoyed the story when I read it but it was very difficult to listen to. The accents that were not American were terrible! I couldn't work out where Jenny was even from until I was told! Her accent was some sort of bad cross between Australian, New Zealander, South African and English. The accents for everybody but our heroine kept taking me out of the story.
