Description

Years ago, Christina Blackburn posed for a scandalous painting that rocked the Victorian art world—and nearly ruined her life. Now a proper antiquarian for the National Museum, Christina hides her smoldering beauty behind an icy façade and prim spectacles. When the museum sends Christina to examine an ancient Highland treasure, she comes face-to-face with the same notorious painting—and its dangerously handsome owner.

Sir Aedan MacBride knows that a local legend of a sleeping maiden says the estate's heir must never fall in love, which suits him fine—until he meets Christina Blackburn. Convinced that the painting's beautiful model is the key to saving his threatened lands, he is desperate to discover what she knows about the old legend—yet he never expects love to interfere.

        August 4, 2003
        An ancient Scottish legend about a beautiful maiden asleep in a rose bower and the laird of Dundrennan, for whom true love can have tragic consequences, plays out in the second installment of King's Victorian-era trilogy (following Taming the Heiress). When Sir Aedan MacBride of Dundrennan discovers historic ruins on his land, he's forced to notify the National Museum. The museum sends prim, bespectacled antiquarian Christina Blackburn, the model from Sir Aedan's most treasured painting. Since the revealing portrait reminds Christina of unhappy times with her late husband, she buries herself in her quest to unearth the ruins, which may be remnants of an early Pictish civilization. The past has made Christina close her heart to love, and the legend has made Aedan leery of it, but still the two are drawn to each other. Before they can find happiness together, however, they must circumvent the briar legend and its supposed curse and outwit a stock villain. This romance starts more slowly than King's medieval-era novels, but her fluid prose and engaging central characters weave a subtle spell. Well-researched details about Victorian archaeology and a sensational, swashbuckling climax make this Sleeping Beauty story a treat for King's fans.
