Summary From Goodreads
A DANGEROUS ATTRACTION When her demanding stepmother died, Ella Benoit knew just how far their fortunes had fallen, unlike her spoiled stepsisters. So she never expected the bequest from her late father. A chateau in France and the freedom to live her own life, all at once! The chateau has seen better days, but Ella knows she can put the ruined house to rights. The life-size portrait of its first owner, Jean-Daniel Girard, seems to watch her work with approval, even pleasure. With bright blue eyes, strong features, and an athlete’s body, the viscount is a tempting sight even now, more than three hundred years after his tragic death. But the more she looks at the portrait, the more convinced Ella is that she’s met Jean-Daniel before. In another life, perhaps—or maybe, as the form who haunts the halls at night, invading Ella’s dreams…

My Review
A great and compelling retelling of the Cinderella story. A castle in France, a time travel, a fascinating ghost, a gentle and sensible protagonist: it is hard not to love this book.
After the death of his step-mother, Ella discovers that she has inherited from her father a castle in France. It's a wonderful opportunity to start a new life. But the castle is in poor condition and there are many jobs to do. She also will have to conquer the ghost that occupies the house. Jean-Daniel Girard was killed the night of his ball and doesn't know how. Ella will return with him back in time to discover the truth.
I loved the protagonists of this story: Ella is shy but brave with a big heart, knows how to fight. Jean-Daniel is a viscount very snobbish but his love for Ella is strong enough to overcome his sense of duty, is willing to give up everything for her. A really romantic love story!
It's a great, lovable, fast-paced book, the author keeps you enthralled and engrossed throughout the book. The writing was pleasant, clever and flowed easily ..
If you enjoy reading sweet romance, then definitely pick this up!
