The Unknown AjaxBook - 2005
Over the years, the truculent Lord Darracott has ruled his barony with a firm hand and a fierce tongue. But when a tragic accident kills his eldest son, Lord Darracott must summon the next heir apparent--his derelict son's only child, whose name no one has dared utter for the past twenty-seven years....
Raised in Yorkshire with a thick accent to match, Hugo finds himself in the broad expanse of the Kent marshlands, where his future estate lies--and which is home also to the Darracotts, who instantly distrust this coarse and unrefined interloper.
But Lord Darracott has the solution--provided he can convince his sharp-tongued granddaughter to marry a perfect stranger....
