In the ranks of the ton, there were dozens of scandals every Season. Over the course of a decade, perhaps a hundred or more. In the course of a century, they numbered in the thousands, of varying depth and destructive influence. But there was one scandal, or rather set of scandals, that had been a subject of whispers for five generations. One that had made two names infamous. That was the war between the House of Rothcastle and the House of Windbury. How it had begun, no one could say, perhaps not even the parties currently involved. A slight at a ball? A cheat at a game of cards?
Perhaps even a betrayal of a friendship for there was a nasty rumor that the families had once been friendly long ago—no one believed it could be possible. Whatever the cause, once their war had begun, it had never found a truce. At times it had been cold.
At times there were years between battles. But at this current moment it was as hot as it had ever been. And as the current Duke of Rothcastle rounded a corner on his horse at breakneck speed, that war grew only more desperate and heated.

As keenly as any of his kin ever had, Christian felt the hatred for his enemy, the current Earl of Windbury, whose friends called him Liam, though Christian would never call him anything but bastard. Windbury was as bad as any of his family. He was cruel, he was greedy, he was wicked to the core and he was a thief.
In fact, Windbury had stolen something very precious to Christian, and he intended to get it back at any cost.veyvekuchasit.ml/la-valla-electrnica-controversia.php
I Love the Earl (Truth About the Duke) by Caroline Linden
He dug his heels into his mount, and the horse responded to the pressure by leaping ever faster, and there Christian saw his quarry. Perhaps if he had paused to think of it, Christian might have allowed his cooler mind to prevail, his intellect to examine what was happening. Though it was nearly dusk and the world was beginning to be shrouded in shadow, Christian saw Windbury look back toward him. The other passenger in the vehicle, a woman, turned toward Christian, and the fear in her face was evident. As evident as the features she shared with Christian, who was, after all, her brother.
He did not hear her reply but saw her pink lips, chapped by the windy cold, mouth his name in reply. She shook her head, her gaze entreating him to end his chase. The other man tugged back, and suddenly there was a wild, terrifying sound from the horses. All three animals, riding too fast and too close, suddenly seemed to have feet entangled and the result was chaos that exploded all around Christian. He was thrown first, spiraling off his animal and hitting the ground with a bonecrunching thud that immediately caused an explosion of pain in his left leg, his arm, his head. But he was not so stunned as to miss seeing the carriage slam onto its side, wood splintering, horses flipping and crying out, followed by a piercing, horrified scream of a woman that was abruptly cut off.
Christian stared at the violent aftermath of the crash scattered across the country road and was suddenly aware that all the loud sounds had ended abruptly. He dragged himself from the middle of the road where he had landed toward the twisted metal and splintered wood, ignoring the crushing pain in his body, the difficulty of breath. His need to chase was gone now, replaced by a far different need.
He needed to see Tildy. Tildy was all that mattered. If he and Windbury were alive, surely she was alive as well. Surely she…. His thoughts cut off abruptly as he reached up for a piece of wood and shoved it aside. Matilda was trapped beneath the larger remnants of the carriage, her arm twisted unnaturally behind her, her eyes wide and glassy as she stared out at nothingness. Blood tangled in her blonde hair, trickled down her face from a gash that ran along her hairline. It was deep and devastating.
She did not respond at first, but after a second too long she blinked once and her gaze focused on him. He squeezed his eyes shut and ignored all his own pain to try to move some of the wood that pinned her. She cried out when he touched it, and he yanked his hand away to stare at her helplessly.
Hurt and betrayed from his late wife, he finds himself winning the hand of a young maiden through a bet.
