WILD (Regency Scandal 2) is the second story in Carole Mortimer’s Amazon #1 Regency series.
Andrew Belgrade, the Duke of Essex, has attempted for years to restore the Belgrade family name, after his mother ran off with the family butler ten years ago, and his father lost himself in drink and ladies of the theatre, before then dying of the former. To add to the scandal, five years ago Andrew’s only sister, Elena, eloped with a man she had only known for a week. But at least she had chosen to remain in Scotland with her husband after the wedding, rather than bring that scandal back to London.
As a result, Andrew holds himself aloof from all possibility of scandal. He does so by choosing his friends carefully and otherwise remaining aloof from Society and any romantic involvements.
He is suitably saddened when he receives a letter from a Miss Catriona McGregor, informing him that his sister, and Miss McGregor’s brother, have both been killed in a boating accident.
It is a total shock to him when Miss McGregor then adds that the custody of the couple’s four-year-old son, Malcolm, now lies with him.
Cat has no idea what to make of the aloof gentleman who arrives in Scotland claiming to be the brother of her now deceased sister-in-law, Elena. Oh Andrew Belgrade, the Duke of Essex is aristocratic enough to bear that title, but he is also cold and arrogant. To such a degree Cat resists relinquishing her nephew, Malcolm, into his guardianship.
The last thing Cat expects is to feel attracted to this coldly distant gentleman.
Or for him, albeit reluctantly, to return that attraction…
