    From the brooding Scottish highlands… A Gothic novel – of romance and terror.
     
    Kate was the bride-to-be of a Scottish lord...
    And what a lord, thought pretty, vivacious Kate. Allan MacAllander was tall, dark, filled with charm and good humor, the thirty-third in a line of fierce Scottish chieftains that stretched back for centuries. Kate loved this fascinating man who would soon be her husband, just as she loved the strange, dark, yet primitively beautiful land beside the sea which would be their home.
    But soon several incidents became a bit too strange. There was Nairne, Allan's handsome yet enigmatic cousin, whose kindness to Kate hid intentions at which she could only guess. There was Mairi, the servant girl, whose impertinence quickly turned to seething hostility. There was the mysterious child-woman who fled into the brush whenever Kate approached her. And above all, there was the whispered secret of the MacAllanders: a generations-old curse of insanity.
    Then tragedy struck close to Kate's heart, and she knew suddenly that a nameless, murderous hate now threatened her own life…

    After her young nephew and two nieces’ parents are drowned in a tragic sailing accident off the coast of Cornwall, the beautiful red-headed Tamara is devastated by their loss and realises almost at once that she is the only person who can look after the three children as she loves them so much.  
    She speaks to the local Solicitor, who tells her that there is no money left in her brother-in-law’s estate and so she has no choice but to take the three children to their uncle, the Duke of Granchester, who lives in splendid isolation in a vast sprawling but intimidating Castle in Gloucestershire. 
    The prospect at once appals Tamara. 
    Firstly because she despises the Duke for the way he had cut off all contact with her sister and brother-in-law as he disapproved of their marriage, thinking that she was an actress when in fact she was a renowned opera singer. 
    Worse still, Tamara has written a somewhat scurrilous novel portraying the Duke as the vile character she believes him to be! And the novel is just about to be published in London!
    Arriving at Granchester Castle in the guise of the children’s Governess, she finds the Duke to be as arrogant, high-handed and annoyingly handsome as her fictional portrayal of him and she hates him even more bitterly. 
    Until a touch of love intervenes and changes everything forever.

    With her hallmark “power, passion, tragedy, and triumph,” the award-winning author tells the story of love between a young missionary and a Sioux brave (RT Book Reviews).   The year is 1892. The last thing sheltered Christian missionary Evelyn Gibbons expected upon arriving at the Standing Rock Reservation in South Dakota was to fall in love. Yet, from the moment she clashes with Black Hawk, the fiercely proud man of the Sioux, she knows he’s everything she could ever want—and everything she can never have.   Living in the hills with his young son, Black Hawk reveres the ways of his people and is determined to preserve Sioux traditions. But when he meets Evelyn, a woman from the society he abhors, not even his own prejudices can smother the flame of desire that burns for her.   Yet in the midst of their forbidden romance is a storm of treachery and hate that threatens to destroy their love—and their lives . . .

    Somerled Sinclair returned after five years to his Scottish castle home to find it shrouded in mist — a mist symbolical of the doubts and difficulties surrounding it. Everything, he found, was changed — his mother shocked by the loss of her husband; his brother Torquil — Lord Ardlair — burdened by the desperate struggle to save the estate; old servants pensioned off; and a certain Miss Alison Graham very much in charge. There was a possible solution in Jennifer Oakroyd, whose millionaire father was determined that she should become Lady Ardlair. But Somerled's initial dislike and suspicion of Alison increased when she informed him that she herself was engaged to Torquil, and had no intention of giving him up.
    The Sinclair's problems were overwhelming, but in this story they are at last dispelled, to leave a picture of life in the Highlands most satisfying to anyone who, like the author, knows and loves them.

    The Duke of Rockcliffe returns home to England from the British Army of Occupation which after the defeat of Napoleon in 1815 is located at Cambrai.
    	He had left England seven years ago when he was merely a young Lieutenant who intended to spend his life in the Army.
    	Owing to the death of several Heir Presumptives to the Dukedom, he finds himself unexpectedly and to his great surprise the new Duke.
    	He also discovers that he has a Ward called Nelita, the daughter of General Sir Edward Sheldon who had been his Commander.  Sir Edward was killed by a stray cannon ball at the Battle of Waterloo.
    	General Sheldon made the Duke Nelita's Guardian because she has inherited her mother's enormous fortune and he was afraid of fortune-hunters.
    	The Duke first heard about the stunningly beautiful and lively Nelita when he read in The Morning Post a description of how, in answer to a challenge, she walked along the parapet of a house in Belgrave Square and was watched by a large crowd who were encouraging her.
    	He is determined that this sort of behaviour should not continue and he then finds that she has been staying with a fast member of Society called Lady Marshbanks, who is not considered to be a suitable chaperone for Nelita.
    	Her next escapade is to show him that she is not a dull and conventional debutante.
    	She dresses up, painted and disguised, as a Society beauty and is clever enough to deceive two of the Duke's friends who are dining with him.
    	He takes her to the Ascot races where they have luncheon with the Prince Regent and the Duke guesses that she has another prank in her mind that he is resolved to stop before it goes too far.
    	Nelita, however, finds that a particularly unpleasant fortune-hunter, Sir James Jensen, is trying to blackmail her best friend in London.
    	She manages to outwit Sir James, but he plans a terrible revenge for Nelita.
    	She is terrified at his dastardly plot and has no idea how she can escape from him.
    	How eventually she is saved by the Duke and how she finds serene happiness is told in this exciting and unusual story by BARBARA CARTLAND.
