Like a fairy tale for adults! 3 July 2003
By Huntress Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Buying into the myth that dominates her tiny town, Meg MacNeill gives herself body and heart, to a "selkie" who washes up on the shore, hoping her sacrifice will assure her village's blessing. She never expects to fall in love, or to have her lover disappear into the night.
Seven years later, she is a wealthy heiress, bent again on saving her town. Then, her "selkie" comes face to face with her, this time all too human. Dougal Stewart has not entered her life to bless her town this time, but threatening its way of life. Both have been haunted by that night, and what's more, there was a fruit of their passion. Knowing the full truth will either bind them or drive them apart as they weave through a maze of blackmail and deceptions.
***** This fairy tale for adults has the magic of love in every chapter. Destiny proves a strong force as the hero and heroine prove themselves worthy of the titles, facing challenges with grit and courage. *****

Only Meg Makes This Book Worthy of ANY stars 23 Jun. 2004
By Adria Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Meg was one of the best heroines ever; she was sweet, smart, compassionate, and troubled.
With the exception of the prologue, there didn't appear to be any real attraction between Meg and Dougal although they often "looked into each other's eyes," but there was no spark. After more than 100 pages the best we got was Dougal touching Meg's elbow every now and then and this was supposed to make her melt. I couldn't see how, really.
Then the author gives us a scene in the end wherein Dougal is in serious trouble and his friends are attempting to help him. Now we know a hero almost always survives, especially in a romance novel, and unless there is some challenge from a villian or a storm, why give the reader these wasteful pages of "wondering" whether or not Dougal's going to make it?
And while I praise Susan King's knowledge of history and occupations of the era, we are subjected to WAY too much information.

truly excellent romance 15 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I could not wait for this trilogy to come out, and I am not disappointed!!! TAMING THE HEIRESS is a wonderful story!! It's full of charm and romance, passionate and charming, with great touches of humor, mixing Celtic legends with a nineteenth century setting. I loved it, as I have loved all of Ms. King's other books, which are medievals. Once again she treats us to her warm poetic writing style, and she draws us into a wonderful world where the characters are so real you wish they were your own family. Great start for a great Victorian trilogy! If you love Scotland and nineteenth century romances, or if you love Sootland for its legends and its magic--you will love this story.

The PERFECT Historical Romance 31 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Meg was beautiful and defiant, Dougal was strong and dashing, Iain was sweet and innocent, Sir Erik was dastardly and plotting...all combining to make the PERFECT historical romance read. This is the best read of the summer! It made me dream of going to the beach to find my own kelpie/silkie.
nice surprise 16 Dec. 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had not read a book by this particular author before, but I really enjoyed this one.

Both the heroine and the hero were quite likable (though Meg was perhaps a bit too stubborn for her own good).

The setting, on the Scottish islands (rather than the more frequently used highlands) was evocative. It sounded like an absolutely gorgeous place.

The Scottish legends that became part of the plot were interesting, as was the construction of a lighthouse in such a remote spot.
