Forever / December 20, 2016 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital
The gossips whisper that the new Duke of Murdoch is a brute, a murderer, and even worse—a Scot. They say he should never be trusted alone with a woman. But Megan Windham sees in Hamish something different, someone different.
No one was fiercer at war than Hamish MacHugh, though now the soldier faces a whole new battlefield: a London Season. To make his sisters happy, he'll take on any challenge—even letting their friend Miss Windham teach him to waltz. Megan isn't the least bit intimidated by his dark reputation, but Hamish senses that she's fighting battles of her own. For her, he'll become the warrior once more, and for her, he might just lose his heart.
Having married off all the Windham siblings in her Windham Series, Grace Burrowes has invented a family of Windham female neices for whom Her Grace, the Duchess of Windham, is eager to make matches. This new series, The Windham Brides, gets rolling with Megan Windham when she, and her family, take under their very influential wing the newly invested Duke of Murdoch.
Scot Hamish MacHugh is not at all happy to be a duke. He is a soldier and is not at all interested in the new notoriety or obligations his title bestows. Hamish was a fierce soldier and, having been in the army his entire adult life, knows no other life. Megan and the Windhams have their work cut out for them making Hamish into a civilized duke. They start with dance lessons.
