"engaging Scottish Victorian Era romance"
In 1850 Scotland, her family sends Meg MacNeill out in a
storm to the shore where they expect her to win the heart
of a kelpie. Dougal Stewart arrives at the remote rock
where Meg awaits her destiny. Thinking he must be the
kelpie in human disguise, she seduces him. However, not
long afterward she realizes her error of giving her
virginity to a mortal male. Their tryst leaves her with a
son and anger towards Dougal for betraying her heart.
By 1857, Meg has inherited a title and wealth that makes
her Scotland's richest heiress. Her money provides some
entrance into Edinburgh society, but her upbringing keeps
her more at home. Currently she is fighting against an
engineer, who wants to build a lighthouse on the rock in
which she lost her innocence. Her opponent is none other
than her enemy for life Dougal. She conceals much from
Dougal especially the facts that she is his lighthouse foe
and that he sired her son. However harder to hide from him
is that she loves him.
This engaging Scottish Victorian Era romance will please
fans of the mid nineteenth century novels. Though the plot
uses trite devices, the story line still hooks the
audience, as fans will adore the lead couple especially
relishing their battles. TAMING THE HEIRESS is a well-
written tale that readers will appreciate as Susan King
displays her fine tuned talent.
