THE STONE MAIDEN
Genre: Historical Romance
Clan MacLaren is nearing extinction. The high price they pay for maintaining a feud with a neighboring clan is the loss of their young men. The last laird, Alainna MacLaren, must fulfill her destiny and the promise of the legend of the stone maiden if she is to save her clan. The legend proclaims that she must wed a warrior who will change his surname to MacLaren.
The king answers Alainnas pleas for help, sending Sebastian Le Bret, a warrior, but a man with strong ties to Brittany and unlikely to change his name.
As these two fight against a common enemy they also fight with one another and struggle with their mutual attraction. Falling in love is complicated by Alainnas belief in the legend and Sebastians devotion
Susan King has the ability to bring the politics, customs, and mores of the Scottish Highlands to life. THE STONE MAIDEN is just one more example of her powerful story telling talents and a gem of a Highland romance. SENSUAL (Mar., 384 pp., $6.50)
