This Vampyre story was set on the shores of Staffa in the wilds of Scotland. Lady Margaret daughter of the Baron of the Isles is preparing for her marriage to the Earl of Marsden. When the Earl appears, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Marsden’s younger brother Lord Ruthven. But Ruthven is dead, killed years before by bandits in Greece. Or is he? Lady Margaret’s devotion to her father the Baron overcomes the dark desires of Lord Ruthven, and the vampire is indeed vanquished by lov
