Sample text

As stark and arresting as Castle Crannoch was, Dev­ len preferred the civilization of Edinburgh, Paris, or London. He had homes and business interests in all 27 28 KAREN RANNEY three and could immerse himself in the activities of his businesses, or find some way of amusing himself. Not like his visits to the castle. Devlen had rarely been to Castle Crannoch before his uncle’s death. As a child he’d visited once when he was ten and due to be shipped off to school.
