captures the thrill of an American beauty's Highlands wedding, where a royal title is at stake -- and where love wins the day.
Claire Willoughby risked losing millions in her inheritance if, as decreed by her grandfather, she did not wed an "acceptable" man. Harry Montgomery, the eleventh Duke of MacArran, seemed perfect. He owned a historic castle, he looked manly in a kilt, and he was as much a titled Scotsman as Bonnie Prince Charlie himself.
Their engagement announced, Claire's future as a duchess was assured -- and she set off with her family to meet the Montgomery clan in Scotland. Bramley Castle was a damp, chill place, overþowing with eccentric relatives. But there was also Trevelyan, a secretive, brooding man who lived in Bramley's ancient halls. Whoever he was, he wasn't at all like Harry: Trevelyan was the most exasperating, arrogant, know-it-all of a man Claire had ever met. And the most fascinating...
Set in 1883 Scotland and focusing on an American intent on snaring a Scottish title through marriage, this agreeable romp spent three weeks on PW 's hardcover bestseller list.
What a delightful book! Jude is amazing!
Claire annoyed me a time or 2 but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The is a sweet read that will make you fall in love with This author’s writing style. There is sassy angst between the female and male. Lots of chemistry and slow burn. HEA. Highly recommend.
I have this book in hardcover in my personal library and it is quite amazing. You get sucked into the literary and it's hard to stop at all once you start reading. Love to have this on-the-go on those long plane trips. But beware! It does get saucy and hot hot hot!!
