Editor's Note

Unusual Regency...

A disgraced widow chooses to stay out of society’s view, instead devoting herself to good works. In the course of that, she meets a disabled war hero, whose quiet intelligence and compassion awaken her interest — and whose touch reminds her of what she’s never had. Their love affair is passionate, intense, and poignant, as is the writing. Both the hero and heroine are off the beaten path from the usual Regency romance.

Description

After enduring her unfaithful husband’s murder and the destruction of her reputation, Viscountess Charlotte Haliday resolves to return to society, the gossip-mongers, and her disapproving father. She’ll be content with her true friends and her charitable work.

She doesn’t expect to be working with a man like David Scott: a hero soon to be awarded the Victoria Cross, broken physically yet still the most exhilarating and intimidating man she’s ever known. From the moment they meet in a shadowy alcove, he awakens a passion she’s never before felt. She in turn shows him life did not end on the battlefield…and he needn’t be alone.

    I loved the Characters and the story was suspenseful, romantic and steamy.

    Started reading it and couldn’t put it down. Sign of a very good book. Loved the way it dealt with the hardness of having to ask for charity, the raising of the funds etc. being disabled I enjoyed the way she wove through story of love through adversity. The frustration, the feelings of inadequacy oh just read the book it’s amazing !

    This is hands down my favorite historical romance to date. I love the realism of the characters, their flaws, and the overwhelming peer pressure that exists even to today. A true overcoming story, each of the characters has growth and falls just as real as anything.

    It was really great. Just, the main character gets so frustrating for a period and I really wanted to speed past so I could avoid the feeling of frustration.
