Archie's 30th birthday is at hand and while he would just as soon let the day pass like any other, the family is planning a surprise party to mark the occasion. Hector also has his own plans for Archie, deciding that the time has come for his son to marry and produce an heir to the line. An article in a magazine describing Archie as the most eligible bachelor in Scotland will, he hopes, do the trick. Archie will have nothing to do with it, that is until he meets Tonya Conway who along with her father, drops in to visit him. She immediately realizes that Archie is in love with Katrina. Archie doesn't realize however that Tanya and her father are hiding something. As well, Katrina and Fergal are still seeing each other. Written by garykmcd
