Last Week to enter NAME THAT CAT CONTEST

Watch the Trailer

Ballad Version (Music by Mike Duncan,

Rock Version (Music by Mike Duncan, Barnes and Noble

Name that Cat Contest -

Romantic Times ad in November 2007 issue "This second story about the Mershan brothers is as interesting, fast moving, suspenseful and fun as the first one." - Susan Mobley, Romantic Times

*****I fell in love with the characters in this story and wanted a happy ending for each of them. Ms. MacGillivray's storylines do more than give you an escape from reality, they allow you to dream of a world where happily-ever-afters are possible and love conquers all. Beautifully done! - Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies

*****The great thing about Macgillivray's "series" novels is they get better with each release. - Amy Wolff Sorter, author of Soul Obsession

*****This is a very compelling tale about lost lives and loving forever. It takes you back through visions to an earlier time and literally a time warp in some cases, like the haunting. I love the jukebox playing only music from the Sixties and that it is always apropos to what his happening in the story. The motley cast of characters is also a great ensemble, with side plots all throughout the story and meshing so well tying it all together. The past and the present meet and come full circle to give justice to a wrong done. This is a tear jerker at times but be prepared to laugh, cry, and sing along to your favorite oldies. If you like young love, time warps, haunting ghosts or jukeboxes, and even riding the thunder on a Harley, this is the one for you. - Lainey, Coffeetime Romance Reviews
