Legacy by Jeanette Baker

Legacy by Jeanette Baker

The blurb:
Christina Murray is elated to inherit her family's ancestral home in Scotland.  But upon her arrival she is confronted by her breathtakingly handsome new neighbor, Ian Douglas. . . and an ancient family curse that comes with the castle.

Seduced by Ian's easy Scottish charm by day, Christina dreams at night of three raven-haired beauties, ancestors who fell victim to the curse one generation after another; Katrine, the fiery Jacobite supporter who lost her heart to an Englishman; Jeanne, an accused witch; and Mairi, who shared a forbidden passion with the King of England.

Now it's Christina's turn to lie in that cursed bed. . . and loving Ian might just cost her her life.

Legacy combines historical romance with time travel and mystery. I was quickly drawn into the stories of the four women of different eras and their ill fated romances.  The lead character Christina Murray is easy to like and sympathize with and her uncanny similarities with the three ancestors gives the Murray/Douglas mystery come to a head.

If you enjoy historical romances and unusual time travel novels,  I recommend checking out Legacy by Jeanette Baker.
