Can she surrender the past to choose the risky road of love?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Kristen Ramsdell
When a mysterious "Spanish lady" appears in a small Wiltshire village asking after one of the local residents, she not only attracts the attention of the town residents but puzzles Lord Danebridge, the military officer and government agent who has been secretly following her. Eastwood effectively peels away the layers of both plot and character in this well-researched story, exposing bits and pieces of the heroine's past only as needed and withholding key information almost to the end.
1997
Romantic Times - Melinda Helfer
Another sparkling jewel of a Regency romance from the pen of a true diamond of the first water. Just who is the mysterious lady from Spain who arrives in a small English village to conduct her equally mysterious business with a former soldier?....One of the genre's most imaginative storytellers, Ms. Eastwood dishes up another wonderful love story full of cleverly plotted intrigue and deception topped off with an intensely powerful resolution. Bon appetit, indeed! (Sept 1997)
