Scandal and the DuchesseBook - 2014
Scandal follows Rose Barclay, young widow of the Duke of Southdown, wherever she goes. It's never her fault -- honor bright -- but newspapers love to write about the simple girl from Scotland and the much older duke, who died suddenly on their honeymoon. And now there is even more talk as the legitimacy of the marriage is being contested by the duke's son and heir. Steven McBride is a decorated soldier -- and a notorious gambler and womanizer. The last thing he wants is marriage, but due to a series of unfortunate events, he and Rose's names are linked in the papers, threatening the lovely lady with ruin. To save the day, Steven suggests they claim to be engaged.
