Description from Amazon.com:
With blood still drying on the front lines at Waterloo, Lady Grace Carrington helps an injured soldier to a British medical tent. Though she believes she’s pulled him to safety, in fact she has put them both in grave danger: Because when his brilliant blue eyes meet hers, the passionate Scottish sergeant kisses her in a way that leaves her breathless and trembling. As the obedient daughter of an earl, Grace shouldn’t be tempted by someone so far below her station. But as a red-blooded woman, she longs for so much more. As far as Duncan Mackenzie is concerned, getting stabbed in the arm was the best thing that ever happened to him. When he wakes on the battlefield, the sight of Grace’s lovely face sets his soul aflame. As an enlisted man and a farmer’s son, however, pursuing his guardian angel means facing the wrath of London society, not to mention his own superiors in the British Army. Aye, but he’d risk all that and more just to keep her in his arms.
Wounded Soldier, battlefield angel, class difference; it all adds up to an emotional journey where true love finds a way. But…we wonder how in the book Ms. Haymore will pull off a Happily-Ever-After? So we stay up late turning pages to find out what will become of Grace and Duncan. I have to say luck was on the side of the lovers. Without some lucky turns of events all would have been lost. Although we know all will be well it is not in the least bit predictable. I enjoyed this escape into the Regency Era of Great Britain and recommend it to all historical romance fans.
This is the second book in the series but is standalone.
