Thaddeus (Tad) Darkin, the Duke of Lambeth, used to be a rake. In fact, before Lord Edon was scandalizing the Ton, Tad was the one everyone was talking about. Many gentlemen secretly wished they had his charm with the ladies. All reputable ladies were warned to stay as far from him as possible, which only made him all the more attractive. Then, after a tragic event, he took a vow of celibacy, promising he would never be intimate with another lady again. Over the years, this caused him to be the most sought-after single gentleman in all of London. And even though he doesn't want to marry, his steward left him in financial ruin, so whether he likes it or not, he must take a wife. After being rejected by the gentleman she was hoping to marry, Miss Loretta Bachman is on a mission to save her reputation. She needs to marry someone who will impress the prestigious ladies in her social circle. So when she catches the leader of the group talking about the very handsome and hard-to-get Duke of Lambeth, she's determined to get him to marry her. All she needs is a little bargaining power, and fortunately for her, she happens to have the money he needs to save his estate. When she learns of his vow to remain celibate, she agrees to keep away from his bed. After all, her only reason for marrying him is to secure her social standing in London, not to have a love match. All she asks is that he pretends to be deeply in love with her when they're in public. That way she will succeed in impressing the Ton. But before long, the lines between what is pretend and what is real starts to blur, and it's hard to decide how far to push the limits of their agreement.

However, it is impossible to give what belongs to another… Torn between their own desire and their loyalties, Bridgette and Lachlan must find the courage to grasp the passion awaiting them and face the pain their choice will cause.

Emily Brontë: Sturmhöhe (Wuthering Heights) • Entspricht rund 400 Buchseiten • Neu editiert, mit aktualisierter Rechtschreibung, ohne den Charakter des Textes zu verfälschen • Voll verlinkt, und mit zusätzlichem Hypertext- Inhaltsverzeichnis • Mit einem Stammbaum der Earnshaws und Lintons, sowie einer Timeline mit den Lebensdaten der Hauptpersonen – angefertigt vom britischen Brontë-Experten Paul Thompson »Sturmhöhe« gehört zu den großen epischen Familienerzählungen, und ist in eine Reihe mit »Vom Winde verweht« oder »Doktor Schiwago« zu stellen. Die Geschichte ist so bewegend, weil sie – wie jeder dieser großen Romane – archaische menschliche Gefühle zur Triebfeder macht: Liebe, Hass, Schmerz, Sehnsucht, Ehrgeiz, Stolz. – In »Dr. Schiwago« ist es die Liebe, in »Vom Winde verweht«, sind es Sehnsucht und Stolz, doch in »Sturmhöhe« ist es das zerstörerischste aller Gefühle, der Hass. Shakespeare ́sche Züge, sagten Kritiker, habe der Roman, andere fühlen sich an die griechische Tragödie erinnert. In jedem Fall ist es ein ganz großer Wurf, der der jungen Emily Brontë (1818–1848), der literarisch bedeutsamsten der drei hochbegabten Brontë-Schwestern, hier gelang. ---- eClassica – Die Buchreihe, die Klassiker neu belebt.
