The Haunting of Angus Macgregor Spotlight Sunday!




The Haunting of Angus Macgregor Synopsis:
Angus Macgregor has endured a lot in life. Mother passing when he was a small child, he also nursed an ill father to his last breath. But when he loses his one remaining relative, an uncle he's never met, his existence is turned on its head forever. Bequeathed Clan Gregor Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Angus leaves Australia behind to take on the family business. It's there he finds more waiting for him than he ever dreamed possible. Daniel Ramsey is a man with secrets, none more dangerous than the fact that he can see what others can't. When he meets one particularly handsome Australian, the attraction is immediate. Hesitant to let down his guard, his hand is forced when a former guest of the castle comes calling and attempts to stake a claim on the very man Daniel wants.

Review:
What a great novel from LJ Harris!!

Angus and Daniel are two characters who you can't help but love. They are both unique in their own way, however, at certain times, they are so similar. Their relationship is strong, however, the bond they share, makes it that much stronger.

This is the first book I have read by this author, however, after reading The Haunting of Angus Macgregor, it definitely won't be the last.

I urge everyone to go pick up this novel if they are in the mood for some M/M, paranormal romance! You won't be disappointed.

4/5 Stars!

Author Interview:
1)     For those you don't know you, would you mind telling us a bit about yourself

I’m a mother of twins (who have grown into wonderful young men) and been married for 22 years. I live in a place where politicians roam free, and where it’s freezing in winter and hot as heck in summer.

2)     Who or what inspired you to start writing?

I mostly wrote poetry for family and friends, but when my father fell ill around six years ago, and the prognosis was far from good, I spent one night writing out my feelings. By morning, I’d purged several pages onto the screen.  My husband read my ramblings, and urged me to write some more. Not long after, I started working on my first novel (there are well over 100,000 words still sitting on my hard drive – yet to be complete), and I’ve been writing ever since.


3)     Who are a few of your favourite authors?

Oh boy, where do I start? As I read both M/M and M/F romance, the list is long but among them are N.R. Walker, Max Vos, R.E. Hargrave, Jay Northcote, M.B. Feeney, K.C. Wells, Parker Williams, Louisa Mae, Nicole Colville, Jex Lane… I could go on!!

4)     What was the hardest thing about writing The Haunting of Angus Macgregor?

Getting the Scotspeak as correct as possible while still making sure that readers could understand what was being said. I ended up consulting with a Scottish friend who gave me a great deal of help, and combined English and Scottish along with a tiny bit of Gaelic.

5)     Which actor(s) would you like to see playing the lead character(s) in The Haunting of Angus Macgregor?

Sam Heughan as Daniel, Liam Hemsworth as Angus, (a long-haired) Gerard Butler as Alexander, and Magda Szubanski as Maddie.

6)     What is your favourite quote from the novel The Haunting of Angus Macgregor?

“I’ll admit that every now’n then I get the urge to bare ma bawbag to the saddle, but no’ today.” – Daniel Ramsey.

7)     What is your upcoming novel going to be about?

My next novel will be part of a series, the first titled His Personal Assistant.

Blurb:

Kade Hutchins is a man at a crossroads. At the tender age of twenty-one he has endured enough hardship to last a thousand lifetimes. With money tight and his career at a standstill, he applies for a job that isn’t exactly in his field of expertise. The day he meets his new boss, Luke Preston, is the day his fate is changed irrevocably.
Luke Preston is the kind of man others envy. Rich, successful, handsome and unattached, his no-nonsense, take no prisoners attitude makes him one of the highest profile litigators in Manhattan. He’s man with secrets… secrets he wants kept under wraps since tragedy shook his privileged existence to the core, so when Kade Hutchins steps foot inside his office, his life is forever altered.
Here is a snippet:

“I know office work’s not your thing, but was thinking you could apply for this one since it’s for a law firm. They’re after somebody who can type, do some reception work, and file. You know your way around a computer, and I’ve seen how fast those fingers fly across the keyboard. You’re always so damned polite, too, which would be great for when you need to greet clients. I think you’d be perfect for the job.” Becca smiled a, determined glint in her eye.
“You think?” I studied at the want-ad. Salary wasn’t mentioned, but when I noticed the job included a health plan, I knew I’d have to at least consider going for it.
            “Sure do. You might not have any experience working in an actual office, but if you tell them you’re interested in becoming a lawyer someday, they might think about hiring you for that reason alone.”
“Huh.” I scratched my chin and contemplated her statement, but found I was unable to find a single flaw in her logic. If I was going to be stuck in an office all day, working for a bunch of lawyers might just make it bearable, considering law would have been my career of choice if things were different.
            “Oh, go on, Kade, do it. What have you got to lose?” Becca pulled out her phone and handed it to me before she stood and headed for the kitchen.
Taking a deep breath, I dialed the number and listened to it ring several times. I was about to end the call when someone decided to pick up.
What?” Startled by the abrupt tone of a male voice, I pulled the phone away and stared at the number I’d just called, then checked it matched the one in the paper. It did.
“Um, oh, I was calling about the job with Preston Law and Associates?”
“Name?”
            “Huh?”
 It’s a simple question, or is English your second language? What. Is. Your. Name?” The man sounded exasperated, and I wasn’t far behind him.
            “Oh. It’s Kade. Kade Hutchins.”
            “And where are you?”
            “I’m at The Corner Cafe on—”
            “I know where that is,” he snapped. “I’m two blocks away. I can meet with you in fifteen minutes.”
I made a mental note of what I was wearing. My oldest pair of faded jeans and Van Halen t-shirt weren’t going to cut it.
“Oh, but I... I’m not dressed for... and I don’t have a copy of my—”
“I don’t care if you’re hogtied to your bed wearing nothing but a smile. Be here in fifteen minutes, Mr. Hutchins, or you can kiss the job goodbye.”


About LJ Harris:
L. J. HARRIS is a mother, wife, an introvert and author. Her family is her life, her soul, and the very reason she gets out of bed every day. Coming a close second is her writing.

She discovered a passion for putting pen to paper in her later years, jotting down poems in birthday cards for family members.

It was then a spark was lit, and ever since, she's been unable to switch off the urge to share her stories.

L.J. Harris discovered that as much as experiencing pain, loss and betrayal can be devastating, capturing the feelings of anguish and loss that some of her characters have had to endure without firsthand knowledge would have proved difficult.

L.J. has been previously published and has shared several online stories and looks forward to continuing to share her work.
