This is an older book, But it's always one of my favorites. It concentrates more on the characters & how they affect other people and each other than purly about the romantic parts.

Set in the late 1800's. Claire sets off to Scotland to marry a duke. There she meets an eccentric relative, Trevelyan who makes her question herself.
It is a good read and has a suprise ending.

Abridged/2 Cassettes/Approx 3 Hours.

Jude Deveraux
captures the thrill of an American beauty's Highlands wedding, where a royal title is at stake -- and where love wins the day.

The Duchess

Claire Willoughby risked losing millions in her inheritance if, as decreed by her grandfather, she did not wed an "acceptable" man. Harry Montgomery, the eleventh Duke of MacArran, seemed perfect. He owned a historic castle, he looked manly in a kilt, and he was as much a titled Scotsman as Bonnie Prince Charlie himself.

Their engagement announced, Claire's future as a duchess was assured -- and she set off with her family to meet the Montgomery clan in Scotland. Bramley Castle was a damp, chill place, overþowing with eccentric relatives. But there was also Trevelyan, a secretive, brooding man who lived in Bramley's ancient halls. Whoever he was, he wasn't at all like Harry: Trevelyan was the most exasperating, arrogant, know-it-all of a man Claire had ever met. And the most fascinating...

I really enjoyed this story. I like a story with more romance then sex and this one had it. Lots of great characters who all end up working together. Cant say the ending is the best but it ties things up(they all kind of end the same right?). Worth the reading to me.

Claire Willoughby was a modern American girl-fresh, practical, energetic, and wide-eyed with curiosity. Because of a clause in her grandfather's will that said she must wed an "acceptable" man to keep her millions, she went to Scotland to look for a titled husband.
Deliciously romantic and wonderfully captivating.

THE DUCHESS

Claire Willoughby was a modern American Girl-fresh, practical, energetic, and wide-eyed with curiosity. Because of a clause in her grandfather's will that said she must wed an "acceptable" man to keep her millions, she went to Scotland to look for a titled husband.

Blond, handsome Harry Montgomery, the eleventh Duke of MacArran, was perfect: he owned a historic castle, he looked manly in a kilt, and he was as much a title Scotsman as Bonnie Prince Charles himself.

Their engagement quickly announced, Claire--her future as a duchess assured--set off with her entire family to meet Montgomer clan at Bramley Castle.

Bramley was a damp, chill place, overflowing with eccentric Montgomery relatives. But there was also Trevelyan, a curious, brooding man of great mystery who lived in secret in the most ancient part of Bramley, Whoever he was, he wasn't at all like Harry: Trevelyan was the most exasperating, arrogant, know-it-all of a man Claire had ever met. And the most facinating.

Harry's mother, the reclusive dowager Duchess, ran the estate and her son's life with an iron hand, and Clair was trying to fit in for Harry was the heir apparent to the dukedom. Besides, Claire had convinced herself that she loved him. But while her fiance went hunting from morning to night, Claire was left alone at Bramley...with only Trevelyan for company.

Reluctantly dragged into Trevelyan's elusive, sometimes exotic world, Claire discovers hidden brances in the Montgomery family tree...secrets so shocking they could shake the walls of Bramley itself, and bring her tantalizingly closer to Trevelyan...

Deliciously romatic and wonderfully captiving. THE DUCHESS brings us Jude Deveraux at her very best, giving us an enchanting look at Scotland's history-rich past, and a magical love story that we will not soon forget.
