Kilts and Kraken by Cindy Spencer Pape

Kilts and Kraken, a steampunk romance,  is the third in the Gaslight Chronicles Series by Cindy Spencer Pape.  Set at Torkholm Island in the Hebrides in July, 1858, is the story of Magnus Findlay and Dr. Geneva MacKay.  Geneva, the daughter of Sir Fergus MacKay, a Knight of the Round Table, is one of the first female doctors in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Begging a favor, her father sends her to check on one Alice MacDonald on the isle of Mull.  It seems Mrs. MacDonald has found a man who was attacked by a kraken and is in need of medical care.  Because the Order investigates magickal occurences, Sir Fergus wants Geneva to go and investigate the kraken as well as tend the man.
Magnus Findlay, Baron of Torkholm, is gravely injured.  All he knows through the blur of pain is that he must get back to Torkholm or he will die.  He tells as much to the angel at his bedside and prays she will listen.  Thinking she is taking him home to die, Geneva listens, and she and Alice journey to Torkholm.  Thus begins the investigation into the kraken and a journey into love for Magnus, Geneva and Alice!  Along the way betrayal, attempted murder, murder and black magick all are discovered.
What a marvelous read!  Best of the series by far!  I loved this novella and look forward to the next installment of the series.  Ms. Pape is getting better and better.
