Lady of Breken Manor by Heather B. Moore {Review}

Lady of Breken Manor by Heather B. Moore
ebook, 120 pages
Expected publication: December 19th 2017 by Mirror Press 
No lady can steal a loyal man from his fiancé, but what if that lady is a ghost?

Lady Charlotte is bored. So bored that when the owner of her manor in Scotland dies, she actually looks forward to haunting, uh, meeting the new owner. Too bad he’s engaged. Because if he weren’t, and if Charlotte could get him to fall in love with her, then the curse would finally be broken.

What curse, you ask? The curse that keeps Charlotte confined to an ancient manor decade after decade, playing parlor tricks on unsuspecting visitors. If only being a ghost weren’t so tedious, Charlotte might actually enjoy her life-slash-death. But the new owner is making her rethink her entire existence.

LADY OF BREKEN MANOR will be released in the Secret Legends Boxed Set on September 12, 2017. Secret Legends will be available only for a limited time at the low price of 99 cents. 
LADY OF BREKEN MANOR will be then moved to an individual release in December 2017.
My Review: 5 Stars
When Sean inherits a manor in Scotland, he and his fiance, Michele go there to look it over before selling it. He doesn't plan on it being haunted though. Can you imagine? Charlotte was cursed and until that curse is broken, she's forced to dwell in this house.
Sean is great! Whether it's fixing the manor up or uncovering vital information for a friend, this man doesn't leave any stone unturned. I really came to adore him, especially when he comes to his senses, and could see why Charlotte is intrigued with him. As for Charlotte, she's a trickster, but my heart really went out to her. The circumstances surrounding the curse fell upon her through no fault of her own, yet she's the one suffering for it.
There are some heart wrenching moments in this story, with no foreseeable resolution, and I couldn't help but hope for some miracle to happen to break the curse. I wanted the characters to find happiness and be at peace, even with the slight melancholy feeling that shadows over the pages. I had similar feelings while watching the old 80s movie Somewhere in Time. Although this is only a novella, emotions are high and I was fully invested.

Content: mild romance with some innuendo; very mild language.
*I received a copy, which did not influence my opinion in any way.*
