A Duchess Enraged
It's 18th century London, where an Earl loses a vast sum of money to his good friend, a Duke. To settle the debt, the Earl suggests that he marry his fourteen year old daughter to the Duke’s twenty-one year old son. The marriage takes place the next morning. She is terrified, and he is furious. Calling her an ugly dowd, he leaves immediately after the ceremony on the Grand Tour and does not return for four years. When he returns, two adults who have barely met, and don’t even recognize each other must build a marriage. Can these two strong and determined personalities learn to overcome the resentments of the past, and convert the misunderstandings of the present into a passionate love affair on which they can build a life?
