Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter shows what destiny has in store for an unlikely pair in this delightful novel.



Pro quarterback Brant Asher has achieved the American dream: fame, good looks, money, and beautiful women at his beck and call. But news from across the pond is about to change everything…



A distant English relative has left Brant an inheritance, which includes a title, an estate, and…a wife.



Daphne Asherwood has always been the wallflower of the family, but she still can’t believe that her uncle had to bribe someone into marrying her—an American football star, no less. She and Brant barely speak the same language, yet when she lets down her guard—and Brant takes a chance on fate—a modern marriage of convenience may turn into happily ever after.



Includes a preview of Aftershocks.

Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter
Catherine Coulter is the author of more than sixty-five books, including historical and contemporary romances as well as her New York Times bestselling FBI 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.

    Barnes and noble misrepresenting

    I dont know if others feel the same, but why doesnt B AND N post that this book (AND 1,000's of others) is a new release in ebook.format? I think it is intentionally misleading. They hype the books as coming soon for.months only to purchase and discover its been published for years. I am switching to Kindle

    I gave up in disgust after about 50 pages. I lived in the UK for years and the author makes so many mistakes that I felt she was writing about a totally different country - research much?

    Stupid!

    This may be the worst book I've ever read. Completely unbelievable storyline. I couldn't havecared less about the characters. How they fell in love is a mystery. The female lead is a complete loser. It read like it was written by a middle-schooler. Truly awful.

    Fun Read

    I enjoyed this book - even though it showed some chauvinistic traits - I feel the male character also showed a warm side. Not being an avid reader - I enjoy this book to take me away from reality. They are fun and entertaining.

    Something Different from Catherine Coulter

    I understand that 'The Aristocrat' was written in the early 1980s, which is a relief because otherwise, Brant Asher, with his macho ways, would seem very out of touch with reality. However, given when the book was written, his chauvanistic attitude is more acceptable. This form of contemporary romance is a strange change for Coulter. She usually writes historicals or contemporary suspenses, so I wasn't sure what to make of the book at first. Still, her trademark cast of amusing and interesting supporting characters are there, as are a hero and heroine who bicker and have lots of fun (and sex! --there was more sex than I was used to in a Coulter work). While I felt the story was a bit unresolved and had a rushed ending, I thought it was an amusing way to spend a day.

    Not up to par for this writer

    I have read most of Catherine Coulter's books, and have enjoyed them. This one, however, was predictable and irritating. The male lead was so domineering!
