A Faerie Fated Forever
A faerie curse promises that one perfect love awaits Laird Nial Maclee. To claim its passionate promise, he must find his fated lady while avoiding the traps, snares and schemes of females lured by his position, looks, charm and the blasted legend. A single misstep will condemn him to his father's fate - a lifetime of craving the love he can never have nor ever forget. Despite his vow never to face that fate, Nial knows that a laird must put the needs of his clan first, even if it means wedding the wealthy heiress and daughter of the only rival clan on the Isle of Skye, "Heather the Hag." To save the Clan Maclee and secure its future, he should marry the dowdy lass even though she won't "set the claws of passion" to his manhood, as the curse provides, so she can't possibly be his faerie fated forever. Before his solution to the dilemma sent Heather fleeing to transform herself for launch on the marriage mart in London, Nial should have recalled that faeries sometimes make the impossible the inevitable.

If it was possible to have a negative star review, this book would have it. It started with great promise and could have been much better. The modern slang and unrealistic behavior at the balls really took me out of the story.
Regardless of the fact that the main characters were Highlanders, no one in that time era would have openly fondled each other on the dance floor. I found it even more difficult to believe that women would openly try to grab his junk which requires the famous Maclee swipe. And Heather's need to prove he didn't love her was over the top and petty.
Now, let's talk about the red dress. Can someone please explain how this dress even is possible? It "curves around her breast (or udders as Heather calls them, another major annoyance in this story) and drops to her navel (i.e. belly button). Then the back is open to the top of her butt. All of this with a corset that makes her "udders almost spill over the top". Ummm, what? And, why would her mother allow her to purchase/make this dress. Oh! Nial picked her up for the dance while she was wearing this dress. Then when they get to the dance, he notices her over the top revealing dress and spazzes out? He should have noticed at her house and threw a fit then. It was just a plot device to get the characters alone and cause a scene with Geoff. And not a very good plot device at that.
I always finish books. No matter how frustrated I get with the story, I have an inate need to finish it if I start it. I don't even feel that with this one. I gave up right before the duel. I just couldn't anymore. The modern language started the downward spiral and the dress was the crashpoint.
It is a good thing this was a free book. I would have been really mad if I had to pay for this drivel.
