Overview

Robert Moreton loved his life and duty in the army, it was all he ever wanted. He was happy to be sent to Portugal...until he came across Esmeralda Talbot, shipwrecked in a small Portuguese village and in danger of being forced to marry the headman's son. Robert rescued Esmeralda, intending to send her immediately to England. Only there was no way he could do so, and to save her reputation from ruin, he married her.

Esmeralda could not believe her luck. She had been in love with Robert since years before when he had danced with her at the Governor's ball in India. Married to her dream! Now all she had to do was keep him from fulfilling his promise to annul the marriage.

Robert knew life was brighter and better than it had ever been before-but he had no idea why. Esmeralda did not dare hint at her passion for him, lest her too-honorable husband send her to England. How was she ever to get Robert to realize he was in love and wanted to keep her beside him forever?

    It was good... But...

    I can recommend this book to those who enjoy a love story combined with history of the Revolution in France and the Napoleonic wars. There is a good deal of validated history in this series so if you read this book, try to read the books of the series… in the order they were written.
    My draw back in my recommendation is: there was too little of the heroine’s involvement with the man she loved and too much of the war action itself. I found myself skipping over some parts of it. I love serious historical stories but I read these stories for what I call “fluff reading” strictly for entertainment and relaxation and I found in some places I found the story dragged.

    Too much detail of history

    It was an OK read. Way to much detail in the history of the battles etc. This guy was sooooo selfish. Really did not like him at the end.

    One of My Favorite Authors

    I love Roberta Gellis' books and have been reading her for years. Good feel for the history of the period (I actually learn things from reading her)and the characters are always three-dimensional and interesting. This book actually marginally connects with other books/characters in this series, as is common in her writing.
