A Strange Scottish Shore by Juliana Gray. Published by Berkley

The Duke of Olympia (also known as Maximilian Haywood) and his able assistant/researcher, Emmeline Truelove set off for the Orkney Islands to examine an unusual artifact. The item in question is purported to be the suit of a selkie, a seal turned human, who married the last lord of the castle. The story of the selkie is based on an old legend, but it can’t possible be true can it? It would seem others want the skin themselves, it is worth a great deal to the right person, and they may be willing to kill to possess this strange and otherworldly artifact. I have long loved the selkie legend, so I was thrilled to see it would be part of the mystery in this book. Loved the setting, the characters and the hint of magic
