THE DUKE is a rewritten historical version of the originally Regency entitled THE GENEROUS EARL. . .
So come back to the beginning of the nineteenth century to Scotland, to Penderleigh Castle, 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. One of the embittered Robertsons? There are lots of juicy suspects to choose from . . .
