Only true love can awaken passion and restore a legend...but the one man who has the power must never fall in love....

In Taming the Heiress, Susan King captivated readers with a thrilling tale of love and enchantment in Victorian Scotland. Now she returns to this magical time and place with an enduring legend--about a beautiful sleeping maiden and a handsome young laird who would never find love...until the maiden awoke.

An antiquarian for the National Museum, Christina Blackburn has her reasons for disguising her smoldering beauty with a pair of prim spectacles and an icy facade. She posed for a painting that scandalized the Victorian art world--"The Briar Maiden of Dundrennan"--and it nearly ruined her life. Ever since, she vowed to suppress her passionate nature and keep her identity a secret. But when the museum sends her on a trip across Scotland, Christina finds herself face to face with the same notorious painting--and its dangerously handsome owner. Sir Aedan Arthur MacBride knows the local legend about the sleeping maiden, of course, but refuses to believe in such a curse. Then he gazes upon this very real maiden's face, and he knows he is utterly doomed...
