Marblestone Mansion by Marti Talbott
A Historical Romance that takes the MacGreagor Clan into Colorado's early twentieth century.
A Duke by inheritance, Hannish MacGreagor soon learned the title came with very little wealth, so he bought a silver mine in Idaho, left his wife of two weeks in Scotland, and sailed to America. Two years later, he sold the mine and became one of the wealthiest men in Colorado. Convinced his wife would be happy there, he built Marblestone Mansion on a bluff overlooking Colorado Springs, where many a wealthy gold mine owner and their families lived. His hopes were high when he sent for his wife, yet there were signs that all was not well with his marriage. Never could he have imagined the disaster that was headed his way.

Marblestone Mansion, Book 3 is now available
Cameron MacGreagor’s wife, Flora, passed peacefully in her sleep, taking their unborn child with her. Consumed with grief, he didn’t think he would ever recover, but a child in need of a family changed all that. There was only one problem; she was the daughter of the last person the MacGreagors ever wanted to see again.
Jedediah Tanner became a thief at the early age of twelve. By the time he was twenty-six, he decided to give up his life of crime, find an honest wife and settle down. Little did he know, the remarkably beautiful woman he would fall madly in love with had a few priors of her own.
How to get rid of a Duchess
It is not that easy, or so Duke Hannish MacGreagor discovered.
Duchess Olivia MacGreagor was not what she seemed. She was the perfect example of beauty being only skin deep, and she was indeed very, very beautiful. She had a small waist, defined features, dark hair and tempting blue eyes that seemed to bore a hole right through a man. She was irresistible and furthermore, she was well aware of it.
Determined to be counted among the highest class of England's society, she finally obtained her goal when she married a duke and for three glorious years, she was the happiest woman on earth. She attended all the best balls, wore the most flattering and luxurious ball gowns, and adorned herself with expensive jewels. Someday soon, she hoped, she would finally be presented to Queen Victoria.
For that, she had to wait for her Scottish husband to make his fortune in silver and return from America. It could not be helped, not if she wanted to be as wealthy as her title implied. While she waited, she enjoyed a private little game of, "will she or won't she" with men not her husband. She saw no real harm in it, after all, everyone loved Hannish too much to tell him, and even if they did, she was ready with her excuses.
The time of their reunion finally approached, but it was not what the duchess expected. Hannish wanted to live in America and he wanted her to live there with him.
