The story was likely published in the late 80’s to early 90’s. The male main character has inherited a title (I think a Duke) and is is the old Duke’s illegitimate son. The old Duke was abusive and had another legitimate son, who had frail health, but loved his brother. The “legitimate” son was also gay and eventually commits suicide. The female l main character witnessed a murder as a child, but doesn’t remember all of it and has nightmares/flashbacks. The illegitimate Duke eventually discovers that he is in fact the rightful heir and that his brother was the illegitimate son.

I’m hoping someone can tell me the name of this book. It’s been driving me crazy for years!

Once upon a wedding night?

I thought it might be connected to the Two Dukes of Wyndham by Julia Quinn but there's no suicide as I recall?
