Publisher's Summary

At the age of nine, Josephina Cochrane is mockingly dubbed the "Duchess" by her half-cousin, Marcus Wyndham. Little does Marcus suspect that the Duchess will one day reign sovereign over his own future. For the Earl of Chase, the Duchess's father and Marcus' uncle, leaves a double-edged inheritance, a legacy that will bind their fates.

When the Earl of Chase dies without a son, Marcus stands to inherit his fortune and title. But the old earl, bitter that Marcus escaped the tragedy that claimed the lives of his two sons, has laced his legacy with vengeful stipulations.

But there is another Wyndham legacy, one beyond the Earl of Chase's rank and holdings - a treasure from long ago that's shrouded in legend. Before the rival legacies can be settled, the Duchess and Marcus must solve two mysteries - one from the past and one that shadows the present.

Critic Reviews

"Unexpected plot twists, witty dialogue and an engaging cast of secondary characters contribute to the charm of [this] Regency romance." (Publishers Weekly)
"A terrific addition is the voice of Maggie McClellan. Clarity, even pacing, consistent vocal quality, and successful accents, American and British, make The Wyndham Legacy a great listening adventure." (AudioFile)

Very entertaining.

Similar to some of her other story lines. However, it has a bit of a punch that I liked better than some of her other historical romances. I guess it is the 'winning out' over adversary.

Again, if you like historical romances, you will enjoy this one; treasure hunting and all.

Lovely, entertaining and a good read

This was a lovely tale of an independant woman, with a free spirit and loving heart. It is entertaining, has an excellent commentary on the times via verse. I really enjoyed it, the leading man was frustratingly loveable and the supporting characters entertaining and diverting. Well written and spoken.

Starts Legacy Trilogy, a fun story and performance

A twist on the bastard daughter who learns to be self possessed and creative. She sees her hero for his flaws. A nicely drawn set of characters and with an audio performance that adds the entertainment of the story line. I truly enjoyed this reader's ability.

Narrator ruined it for me....

Too low a voice, terrible voice for singing the characters "jingles". Shouldn't this have been considered when selecting a narrator??!!
Problem is, I've read this book & loved it.....

Boring

I tried to get in to this book but it was so boring. The storyline would have been fine, but it just drug on and on and on...... the narrator was also a bit boring. I didn't finish this book as it bored me so much.

Foul language

I just could not tolerate the foul language. But otherwise, I would like to have listened to the rest of the story. I had to cut it short because just too much of a foul language issue, but if that doesn't bother you sounds like it would have been a good story.

This was another great Catherine Coulter book. It certainly held my interest. I couldn't put it down. Now I'm about to check out the next book in the series.
