    Devon, the Earl of Malton is lauded as a war hero but he is not

    Devon, the Earl of Malton is lauded as a war hero but he is not the same man who went off to fight for his country. He is plagued by guilt and nightmares and when he meets Cathleen, the widow of the man who saved his life, he sees a way to end both of their suffering. A touching and romantic little novella.

    This was my favorite Regency of the summer and I¿m looking forwa

    This was my favorite Regency of the summer and I’m looking forward to reading her next Regency that comes out October of 2013. Hero’s Redemption is a fresh look into the era that shows the capacity to love in spite of it all. I enjoyed the characters chemistry and how they dealt with those tough situations that we continue to deal with even today. We have a battle scarred hero and a widow caught in a situation that leaves trust on the side of lacking for both of them. As the two journeys through their adventure we look forward to see how they will conquer what life throws at them.

    Best part of the story is that it's a novella

    I give the story two and a half stars. Writing the story as a novella was a good decision. In my opinion, because the story is short...if the characters had reappeared from a series then the events would have seemed more plausible. Especially when some secondary characters just faded away.
    Also, scenes felt abruptly cut causing them to lack details.

    Second, this is a war hero story (based on the title) and I find those characters boring. Most war hero characters are written alike: injured, mentally affected from the war and brooding. For me it's to much emotional drama.

    Regencies aren't my typical cup 'o tea but I had more free time

    Regencies aren't my typical cup 'o tea but I had more free time than usual last week thanks to a family camping trip so I decided to go ahead and give Hero's Redemption by Georgie Lee a shot. The story immediately sucked me in and at thirty-four thousand words, it made for some great summer reading beside the fire. I finished the story over the course of a day and never had any difficulty staying involved in Cathleen and Devon's story.

    Cathleen is wonderfully strong-willed and assertive. As a destitute widow, she has the unfortunate circumstance of living with her dastardly brother, Lucien, and his wife, Martha. The story starts off with Devon waking up in Cathleen's bed as part of a contrived blackmail scheme cooked up by Lucien.

    A hero of Waterloo, Devon suffers from terrible PTSD, including traumatic nightmares. He is smart and courageous, but also deeply wounded. Cathleen happens to comfort him during such an episode and he finds solace within her presence. The pair share an immediate attraction to one another. An unfortunate past event involving Cathleen's deceased husband also binds them together.

    I loved how Devon rushed to rescue Cathleen from her greedy relatives and wanted to protect and shelter her despite his initial trust issues. As a couple, their scenes together are sweet and tender, and the reader really wants for them to overcome their differences and fall in love. I'll admit to harboring some preconceived notions about what to expect from sex scenes in Regency romance (I thought it was all closed-doors). But I was pleasantly surprised to discover sensual-to-spicy lovemaking scenes.

    There wasn't a whole lot of action but the author managed to keep events moving right along to the very end. The characters are well developed and secondary characters contribute to the story, although I found the occasional scenes involving Lucien and Martha to be less enjoyable. The story is well written and editing is professional.

    It's easy to recommend Hero's Redemption to anyone looking for an easy-to-read summer romance set in the British Regency period.

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
