From the New York Times bestselling author of Mountain Laurel...

Jude Deveraux has captivated her listeners with her irresistibly romantic love stories. Now she creates an absorbing tale set in the verdant hills of late nineteenth century Scotland, where nobility and time-honored customs rule supreme, the majesty of love flourishes, and one beautiful American heiress hopes to become...The Duchess.

What is an "acceptable" man? Claire Willoughby had good reason to wonder -- she had to marry one in order to inherit her grandfather's millions. While in London, Claire thinks she finds the perfect candidate: Harry Montgomery, the blond, handsome eleventh Duke of MacArran. Their engagement quickly announced, Claire travels to Bramley, the Montgomery estate in Scotland, to meet the Duke's eccentric family. What she doesn't count on, however, is meeting Trevelyan -- an exasperating, mysterious, arrogant, know-it-all of a man who lives in secret in the most ancient part of Bramley.

Undeniably attracted to Trevelyan, Claire is reluctantly drawn into his hidden world, where she discovers the truth about the Montgomery family -- shocking secrets that could rock the very foundations of Bramley...and bring Claire and Trevelyan ever closer... Download and start listening now!

    " Claire Willoughby is an American heiress with an inherited fortune of $10 million if she marries the duke that her parents select. However, although Claire initially falls in love with Harry Montgomery, she is soon bored with his lack of conversation as his only interests is hunting, guns, and horses. Meanwhile, the famous explorer Captain Baker is staying at Harry's estate. He says he is a relative of sorts. In actuality, he is Harry's older brother and is the true Duke but Trevelyan doesn't want to be tied to the estate and he and his mother loathe each other. Claire finds herself drawn to Trevelyan but is aware that she will be disinherited if she fails to marry Harry. This would mean that her parents would get the money and would go through it as rapidly as they spent the $20 million that was left to them, leaving themselves and CLaire's younger sister destitute. Which will win- true love or duty? "
