Once a year, an ancient secret walks the corridors of Greyson Hall, a place shrouded in mystery and whispered legend.

When Devon Clayton inherited the stately mansion in England’s wild north from his uncle, he never imagined what secrets lurked within its walls, hidden for centuries. When his friends and brothers join him for the holiday, the British Agents and their families discover that their most unusual case will bring new meaning to Christmas spirit.

Read An Excerpt

The Ghost of Greyson Hall

by MK McClintock

He stood an inch taller than the bay Clydesdale’s withers, over which he smoothed a gloved hand. His long legs carried him on a smooth stride to the animals’ heads, where he whispered to the front pair and rubbed the white markings on their faces.

From where she stood at the window, peering down from the second-level bedroom, Grace watched his every move, her eyes transfixed on the Highlander. Lingering fog, not yet burned off from the morning cold, curled around his trew-clad legs. The leather-trimmed trousers molded what she could see of him beneath his plaid.

Brice Maclean, the only guest from north of Edinburgh on her husband’s list of notables he expected to attend. This one held neither title nor lineage of consequence, a rarity among Spencer Canterbury’s preferred company.

No other passenger alighted from the gilded four-in-hand coach, a stately and expensive conveyance for a single man of no distinction. Wealth, however, forgave many sins, including a lack of title and position. Grace often believed her husband—contrary to his claims—valued wealth above all else.

The Highlander, Spencer had informed her when she read his name on the guest list, would arrive for business earlier than the other travelers. What enterprise such a man would have with Lord Canterbury of Northumberland remained a mystery, and her husband quelled further inquiry.

Their guest only gave his attention to the earl after speaking with the driver and watching the team drive away toward the stables. Grace wished she knew of what they spoke or read the movements of their lips, but they did not turn their faces upward enough. Only when the earl invited him inside did the Highlander raise his face to gaze upon the stones. A breeze blew his dark hair away from a strong face partially covered in an unfashionable light beard. His eyes pierced her quickly and without apology.

Grace could not credit what kept her at the window with the curtain pulled back, allowing Mr. Maclean to witness her spying upon them. His gaze flitted over her once, then a second time, before leaving her view and entering the house. Under normal circumstances, she would have been downstairs to greet him. However, she quickly discovered nothing about Brice Maclean’s arrival was commonplace.
