More About the Author

May McGoldrick

(a.k.a. Nikoo & Jim McGoldrick, Jan Coffey, Nicole Cody)

Nikoo and Jim McGoldrick are storytellers, teachers, and partners in the truest sense.

Nikoo was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved to United States on the eve of Iranian revolution. After receiving a degree in Mechanical engineering, for fifteen years she worked in shipbuilding and robotics, holding manufacturing and higher level management positions. Always a writer and teacher at heart, she gave up her engineering career to pursue writing full time over a decade ago. These days, she also conducts frequent workshops on writing and publishing and serves as a visiting author at middle and high schools.

When their first son was born, Jim gave up a successful career in shipbuilding to pursue a PhD in Medieval and Renaissance literature. After being awarded tenure at a university in Pennsylvania, he found that the opportunity to write novels full-time could not be ignored. Since then, he and Nikoo have written well over two dozen works of fiction and nonfiction. Along with his writing, he currently teaches English and Creative Writing in northwestern Connecticut.

Together, Nikoo and Jim write historical fiction as May McGoldrick and contemporary suspense thrillers as Jan Coffey.

These prolific and popular authors have been the recipients of numerous awards for their work. They now reside in Litchfield County, Connecticut.

I absolutely loved this book. It has everything you've ever wanted in a gothic romance - mystery, suspense, hidden passageways, hidden damsels in distress, ancient rituals, danger, an awesome hero, a smart heroine, realistic and humorous dialogue, well-developed plot & characters. This is excellent. Buy this book - it's just wonderful. This is the best I've read yet from May Goldrick.

Another great read by the McGoldricks. They again take one on a wonderful journey, full of surprises. It's heart warming that Gavin Kerr finally finds someone to love him in return.

Flame is highland magic 15 Oct 2000
By Calliope's Pearl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read alot of historical romances and this is one of my favorites. It has all the factors that for me make a good novel.. mystery, romance and magic in a medieval setting. If you have read and liked "Outlander" and "Knight in Shining Amor".. you'll love this book.

A wonderful combination of romance and suspense. 21 July 2002
By Rebecca Herman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ironcross Castle has long been believed cursed by many in the Highlands. Its lairds have all perished in "accidents" long before their time. The last laird died with his family and servants in a terrible fire that was surely no accident. Gavin Kerr has been given Ironcross Castle, to be its next laird now that the MacInnes line has ended. He doesn't believe in curses. He has lost everyone he ever cared about and never expects to find love. But Gavin finds himself enchanted with a portrait of Joanna McInnes, the laird's daughter, who died in the fire. Little does he know that Joanna survived and is hiding in the secret passageways of the castle, plotting her revenge against those she believes responsible for her parents' deaths. Gavin and Joanna fall in love, but Joanna is determined to sacrifice herself to bring justice for her family. I loved this book. It had just the right blend of romance and suspense, and kept me guessing until the end who the real killer was. There was a great, spooky atmosphere in Ironcross Castle, and even some light moments. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy historical romances with Scottish settings.

A very good historical... 2 July 2003
By iheartjackbauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Not an avid historical reader, I have to read everything of May McGoldricks that I can get my hands on. In this different book of historical romance, McGoldrick brings the reader to the cursed Ironcross Castle, in the Highlands of Scotland.
Given the keep by the order of the King, the only reason Gavin Kerr was even going was to retrieve a portrait of the grandaughter of an old woman who died in a fatal fire in the south wing. Upon his first glance at the portrait, Gavin in bewitched by the face of a woman long dead. When the portrait is taken from his chamber night after night and put back in it's original place, a room with no floors, Gavin is determined to catch the thief. Little does he know exactly who he will catch.
Joanna McInnes has been thought long dead. No one knows her plans for revenge on the ones she is sure are responsible for the death of her family. When the new laird of the castle arrives, Joanna wants to warn him of the curse, but since she's supposed to be dead, decides to protect him as best she can. What she doesn't expect is her instant and undeniable attraction to the handsome Lowlander, nor his for her.
The suspense and romance in this book will make it very hard to put down. I read it in one day, and like I said before, I don't usually enjoy many historicals. Everything combined in this book make it one well worth reading!
