About the Two Dukes of Wyndham

The idea for The Two Dukes of Wyndham was hatched early in my writing career when I was listening to the radio, and “Industrial Disease” by Dire Straits came on. It’s long been a favorite song of mine, and one particular line has always struck me as interesting: “Two men say they’re Jesus. One of them must be wrong.” Romance author that I am, I immediately thought: “Two men say they’re the Duke of Something. One of them must be wrong.”

The trick there, though, was to figure out how on earth the succession to a dukedom could be in doubt, because that sort of thing was generally well-documented. Once I came up with a way to make the plot work, I started thinking about the characters. Which would be the bad guy–the current duke or the long-lost duke? Then I thought–wouldn’t it be so much more interesting if they were both good guys?
