Description from         

Miss Sarah Fairfax is having a wretched year. Her intended perished at war. His child is in her belly. To secure her future, she resigns herself to a loveless marriage. Just as she’s about to say “I do,” her fiancée returns from the grave to crash the wedding… but he’s no longer the charming, carefree man she remembers. After being left for dead on the battlefield, Brigadier Edmund Blackpool is scarred inside and out. He fights his way home only to discover his intended before the altar with his best friend. He’ll be the one to marry her, no matter what she wants! But when his new bride disappears with his child, he must reopen his wounds to win the most important battle of his life.

Regency-set Historical Romance Novel (45,000 words / 200 pages)

The Dukes of War historical romance books in series order:

  1. The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation(free from Amazon Kindle)
  2. The Earl’s Defiant Wallflower
  3. Captain’s Bluestocking Mistress

  6. The Pirate’s Tempting Stowaway
  7. The Duke’s Accidental Wife


I read and reviewed the first book in this novella series and gave it 5 stars. This one did not live up to my expectations. I felt there was some wasted words on repetition when a more in depth look at the situation was needed. I was pleased with the author’s views concerning Sarah’s post-partum concerns and Edmund’s attempts at helping, even though I don’t believe a Regency aristocrat would change nappies. I will read this author again because she does write an interesting story but this one was just not for me.
