The Wild Baron Author:Catherine Coulter Roban Carrington, Baron Mountvale, proud scion of a family renowned for its philandering and charm, is bewildered. He had received a letter stating that his late, younger brother, George, ruined a young lady. But how could this be possible? George was a scholar, a serious young man; without mincing words, he was a prude and a stick. Whereas ... more »Roban enjoys the reputation of being a womanizer, George had the reputation of cold porridge.
Enter the ruined young lady, Susannah, who claims she wasn't ruined. She claims she's a Carrington, but George didn't leave her in fine fettle. She has a 3-year-old daughter, very little money, a younger brother and a wastrel father. In short, she's not in fine fettle. But she and her daughter are in danger.
When Roban and Susannah team up, they find themselves on the trail of a legendary treasure somehow connected to MacBeth, 11th-century king of Scotland--a fantastic legacy of ancient good and evil.
