Overview

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...

Spirited Scottish beauty Brandy Robertson is appalled to discover that Ian Carmichael, an English duke, has inherited her family earldom. That this foreigner is also her new guardian is even more intolerable. But when Ian visits her castle, Brandy discovers that he is handsome, charming, generous--and set to wed a woman he doesn't love. Original.

Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter
Catherine Coulter is the New York Times bestselling author of more than sixty-five books, including historical and contemporary romances and her wildly popular FBI suspense thriller series. She lives in Northern California.

Biography

The author of dozens of bestsellers, Catherine Coulter made her Romance debut with 1978's The Autumn Countess, a fast-moving story she describes as "a Gothic masquerading as a Regency." Six more Regency romances followed in quick succession; then, in 1982, she penned her first full-length historical novel, Devil's Embrace. She counts several trilogies among her most popular historicals, notably the Bride Trilogy -- which, in turn, spawned an ongoing story sequence featuring the beloved Sherbrooke family of Regency-era England.

In 1988, Coulter tried her hand at contemporary romance with a twisty little page-turner called False Pretenses. Her fans ate it up and begged for more. Since then, she has interspersed historicals with contemporary romantic thrillers (like the novels in her bestselling FBI series) in one of the most successful change-ups in the history of romance publishing.

    Fantastic!

    I couldn't put this one down! WOW! What a great story full of rich characters, that engulf you into the book. Lady Adella (the old countess) is one to reckon with! The love story is beautiful, I love the tension and heartache that the two go through. I recommend this book!

    I had read this book many years ago but picked it up and re-read

    I had read this book many years ago but picked it up and re-read it and loved it as much this time as the first time. Ian and Brandy were great characters and had a romance. The fiancé showed her true colors and I was sad to find out who the real villain was. All in all a great story.
