Read full description of the books:
A willful, impulsive young lass named Jane Maxwell is the spawn of a drunken baronet and his controlling wife, who is persistent in finding a rich, titled son-in-law. Jane, however, is in love with Thomas Fraser, a young man whose family lost their lands and titles by attainder because of their support of Bonny Prince Charlie. When Thomas joins the Black Watch and sails for America, Jane is despondent. While there Fraser faces mortal injury. Jane finds comfort from Alexander Gordon, a Duke of Scotland, dashing and compassionate. Bah bah bah soap opera
Years pass, but feelings don't die. Jane's marriage turns her into a breeding cow, and she grows to despise Alexander, but she has valid reasons. Eventually she learns to accept her circumstances. She does the rounds, she ingratiate herself in Pitt's election as a rival of the Duchess of Devonshire, inspiring Pitt's ardor and Alex's jealousy. But then Alex seems to always be jealous. She even becomes the patroness of one Robert Burns. Regardless of what she chooses to do on life, whether if it is to build her own home in Kinrara, marry all of her daughters to nobility, or raise sheep, Thomas never leaves her thoughts.
Having read all of this dramatic love story, I decided to do a little research. In reality the Duke of Gordon had an affair with the youthful housekeeper and had children with her. Jane lived a separate life and had her own affairs. Thomas was one of many. 'Tis true she did not wish to abandon her children or her title, but there was no love lost between the two.
