One simply cannot look away from a bit of gossip as delicious as this! Lady Rose, daughter of the Earl of Wentworth is said to be promised to the 6th Duke of Manchester, otherwise referred to as the scarred duke. While a lady is lucky to find herself stepping into the role of duchess, one has to wonder what it might be like to be thrust into marriage with a man with such obvious deformities.
Even more insidious is that no one knows how he acquired such scars. Troubling indeed! The possibilities are endless but none of them portend to any virtue a woman would want in a husband. Was it brawling, spying, rakish ways that caused his face to be changed? No one has the answer.
While everyone knows that Lady Rose flits from beau to beau, the next more handsome than the last. While the lady does have an intact reputation, it is amazing indeed, or perhaps it is because her father never lets her out of his sight.
We are all wondering how the lady, who every handsome man seems to want, will suffer a marriage to a man who has been as physically altered as the scarred duke.
Taming the Duke’s Wild Rose
Since the death of her mother, Lady Rose Wentworth has dreamed of a hero. A knight or soldier who sweeps her off her feet and heals the scars she hides within. These fantasies cloud her judgement when it comes to a man’s true nature and every suitor she pines for proves to be less than honorable. But Rose is convinced she has finally found a true hero in the soldier, Carl Lundberg.
Fearing for Rose’s future, her father arranges a match with the scarred duke. Powerful and rich beyond reason, Lord Wentworth is convinced this is the man who can provide a real future for his daughter. But Rose knows better, or so she thinks. Now she is caught between two men, one handsome and dashing, the other scarred but intriguing none-the-less. As each vies for her hand, Rose finds it more difficult to discern whose intentions are pure.
The more Rose is entangled in the web of love and marriage the more she questions which man has the true heart and who can unlock hers.
Meet Tammy Andresen
Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics. It was inevitable that at the age of 18, she headed off to Simmons College, where she studied English literature and education. She never left Massachusetts but some of her heart still resides in Maine and her family visits often.
