One of Catherine Coulter's first novels—lavishly rewritten.
The #1 New York Times bestselling author turned The Generous Earl into The Duke—and fans swooned over the tale of romance and suspense set in 19th-century Scotland.
Penderleigh Castle is the home of the Robertsons, who have just been dealt a terrible blow. Their new master, already an English duke, has just been named the Scottish Earl of Penderleigh.
Ian Carmichael, Duke of Portmaine, is proud, aristocratic, handsome as the devil’s right hand, and kinder than any grousing Robertson has a right to expect. Brandy Robertson—the old earl’s granddaughter—takes one look at the duke and her heart goes ballistic. The problem is, the duke is already engaged, and if that isn’t bad enough, someone wants to kill him...
I really enjoy yes this book. It is one of a series, all of which have read were enjoyed. Brandy, the female main character, was quite a character and a challenge to the main male character he Duke. I throughly enjoyed her. Then there was Grandma in Scotland who was a totally different type of character. She was authoritarian to the “enth” degree; by this I mean that she always let ever know that she was in charge and in control. And hen there was a Giles, peacock in the way he dressed.
On another subject, the descriptions of Scotland made me think hat I’d like to visit it.
