Publisher's Summary

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 19th 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 11th 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....

    "One of My Favorite Books"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I often purchased the audible versions of my favorite books to listen to when I travel (and at work when I need to block out office mates chatter!). This one is abridged in extreme. It reads more like a short story. Next time I will pay more attention and get the full novel.


    Which character – as performed by Nicol Williamson – was your favorite?

    Trevelyan was portrayed well but the female characters all sounded like Grandma.

    "I Own The Physical Book"

    they probably read what they had well enough but they cut entire swaths of characters and there dialog I love the original and I can see where some curs would be fine but when too much is gone you leave the understanding of this wonderful tale behind please read the book or find the unabridged because this is awful (also I've been busy while I typed this up sorry for Grammer and spelling errors)

    "favorite book !"

    one of my all time favorite books. I just wish it was not a bridged version they left a huge portion out but none-the-less loved it. Trevelyan and claires story should be made into a movie.

    "do not waste your time"

    The story was mediocre. The narration was bad. This book was a major disappointment. I feel like I wasted my money on this.
