In 1810 Seamus Southworth hopes to complete his research on whether the fifth century Arthuis was King Arthur by finding the legendary Avalon, which he believes is near Castle Druidhean on the Isle of Skye. With Seamus ailing, his daughter Regan decides to prove her father's theory to the members of the Royal Society who scoffed at Seamus.

Searching near Druidhean, Regan meets Laird Lachlan “Mad” MacGregor in a very auspicious way. Lachlan knows Regan is not on his haunted estate at midnight for a social call. He decides to keep an eye on her in case she finds damaging information about his clan amidst the Druid ruins. So he hires her as a companion to his grandmother. Not long afterward he ponders whether his fear of the curse supersedes his growing love for Regan and can she reciprocate those feelings for a mad aristocrat while someone human or the curse tries to stop the intrepid Regan.

ISLE OF SKYE is an exciting Scottish Regency romance that reads like a gothic tale starring a brooding dark hero with deep secrets and a curse, living alone in an ancient castle and an intrepid innocent heroine bringing light and love to him. The story line is fast-paced as Constance Hall furnishes a mystery to provide depth to the enchanting tale, but insures that the subplot ties back to the prime theme through the actions of the cast. A sequel starring the siblings of the lead characters would enhance the audience feeling that we found a piece of Camelot in Ms. Hall's writings.
