Synopsis : Though he lost the use of an arm in the Napoleonic Wars, earl s brother Henry Middlebrook is determined to return to London society. Ignoring the well-meaning doubts of his relatives, he embarks on an ambitious courtship of the ton s reigning beauty. Realizing that his long absence from London hurts his chances of success, Henry asks for assistance from the beauty s companion, Frances Whittier. A soldier s widow with a murky past, Frances admires Henry s courage and caught by a swift attraction, she sends him a private letter. She soon learns that Henry thinks the letter was from her mistress. Forced to choose between her pride and the truth, Frances carries on the mistaken correspondence in secret. But as Henry gains the confidence to rebuild his life, the clandestine letters hold less importance than his heated friendship with Frances, who soon engages his heart. When he entrusts her with the dark truth of his injury, the path to a new life seems cleared. But before long, Frances s past sins and Henry s present foes unite to break up their happiness. On a dueling field, Henry must find a way to leave behind a life of violence, while Frances must break the cycle of secrets that ended her first marriage and now endanger her newfound love.
Critique: "Romain uses strong characters, witty banter and Cyrano de Bergerac type situation to bring her story to life... definitely a must read for Regency fans." - Debbie's Book Bag
