Life without love is not worth living.
Nessía of the Loch has lived beneath the murky water of Loch Ness since ancient times. The pain of loneliness manifests in anger so strong, the entire valley shakes with earthquakes. In 1816, a Faerie queen pleads for her to cease the tremors and rewards Nessía with a human form. To stay human, she must find love. When the man she believes she loves casts her aside, Nessía responds to the betrayal by cursing the men of the MacDonald clan with the inability to keep a woman’s love. Only an act of true selflessness will break the curse.
After centuries pass, Nessía again searches for love. When Rory Hawthorn, an American scientist, arrives under the pretext of researching the earthquakes but in reality to research his MacDonald heritage and the curse, she believes she has found the perfect mate.
Amid stolen kisses, another earthquake, a steamy night of passion, and a broken heart, Nessía returns to the murky depths of the loch. When Rory dives in to follow her, he meets the green, scaly Loch Ness Monster. Assuming Nessía is in danger, he is intent on killing the monster and saving the woman he loves.

Nessia is a maid at the local pub and has a lover MacDonald. As time goes on she learns from him he is never going to leave his wife over her. She just gets him by is all and nothing more. Nessia is so hurt and angry, she casts a spell on the MacDonald clan. Several centuries go by and in walks Rory, an American looking to study the earthquakes they have in town. That is his story, but in reality he is looking for some family background of the MacDonalds. Nessia has no clue at first and falls for Rory. She is lonely and really wants to find love. Rory hurts her and as she jumps into the water so does Rory thinking she is in danger with the Lock Ness Monster. Can Rory save what he has with Nessia? Can Nessia overcome the shock when she realizes who Rory is? The story grabs your mind from the start and you have to know what is going to happen. Will Nessia find true love or go back to the water? Will Rory let her down or come through? The setting is remarkable and I know Nancy has done a lot of research in Scotland and that hard work has shown through this book. I could imagine being there with Nessia and her surroundings.
The prophecy is this 'the tangled ivy will lead the soaring dove and the cawing crow into the battle of a life time.' I have no idea what this means though! And here are the kits. SHE KITS~ Ivykit-(black with white paws. Green eyes. Playful curious and caring.) Dovekit-(grey with white paws and ears. Blue eyes. Comsiderate shy and playful.) Honeykit-(golden with emerald green eyes. Curious naughty and very out spoken.) TOMS~ Crowkit-(all blck with amber eyes. Naughty out spoken and kind to littermates.)
This novella has a cute theme. I enjoyed having the woman as the Scot for a change. I think this story could have been developed further It was dispointing that the end of the story was so "crunched".
What a wonderful story line. Nessie deserves to be treated well. Her former so called true love turned out to be a dishonorable person. She has waited so long (centuries) for the arrival of this new love. I was rooting for her through the entire book. I want to enjoy the escape of a well written story line when I sit down to read. Dragon in the Mist filled that desire.
