Decades of war with France are over and Napoleon Bonaparte is safely confined on Elba. Yet Major Lord David Trent finds his homecoming far from peaceful. His father, the Duke of Braughton, is determined to see his son wed, and he has a very specific bride in mind his neighbor's daughter. David cannot recall that the neighbor even has a daughter, much less one he might find appealing! And after years spent fighting on the Peninsula, he is in no mood to be ordered to court anyone. Wilhelmina Caswell has always been in love with Lord David, as her family is well aware. Her preference, and the designs of both their fathers, would seem to make the match inevitable. But as the spring of 1815 advances along with an emboldened Bonaparte, a looming battle threatens thousands of lives and one growing love at Waterloo.

Sherry Lynn Ferguson lives in Virginia, where evidence of the past is everywhere, even next door at the remains of a Civil War fort. She loves to read about many eras, but the eventful late Georgian and Regency period in England intrigues her the most. Major Lord David is Sherry's fourth novel. In her next, she continues the tale of Lord Hayden, who first appeared in Quiet Meg. The Honorable Marksley and Lord Sidley's Last Season are also available.From Booklist :
For one night, Major Lord David Trent plans on doing what he wants to do instead of what is always expected of him, and that means dancing with the intriguing, yet vaguely familiar masked woman at his family’s New Year’s Eve ball. David not only manages to sweep the lovely lady away in a waltz, he also manages to steal a kiss from her. Of course, when David is caught kissing Wilhelmina “Billie” Caswell, his neighbor’s daughter, he promptly does his duty and offers to marry her. But much to David’s surprise, Billie, whom everyone thought was in love with David, turns him down. While marrying David would be a dream come true, Billie wants his proposal to come from the heart and not the head, which means Billie is content to wait as long as it takes for David to realize he is in love with her. Ferguson deftly incorporates some fascinating historical details about the Battle of Waterloo into the plot of her latest engaging traditional Regency. --John Charles
