    I don't believe it is part of a series, but I did find 2 other books that had characters from this one.

    Juliana Grenville is determined to get her brother to go to London for the season. She wants him to enjoy himself since she feels that all he does is work on the estate. Julianna and her aunt come up with a plan. They tell Juliana's brother that she is ready to find a husband (she is a widow) and he will follow her to town.

    On the trip to town, Juliana and her aunt are in a carriage accident. Dominic, the Marquis of Aubrey, comes to their rescue. He takes them to the nearest inn to have their carriage fixed. He feels an attraction to Juliana and decides to extend his stay at the inn to get to know her better.

    Just as the two of them are getting to know each other, Dominic learns who Juliana's husband was. Juliana's husband had talked about her during his time in the army and Dominic had fallen in love with her by those stories alone. But learning who she is means that he is not good enough for her.

    Juliana is hurt by Dominic's sudden change of heart and doesn't know what she did that made his attitude toward her change. Can Juliana break through this bearer that Dominic has put up so that each of them my find the love of their lives?

    I really loved the story line, but the writing seemed to be amateurish at times. This is a republished edition, so maybe this was one of the author's earlier pieces of work although I would have though they would do some editing before republishing.

    As stated above, I did really enjoy the storyline. I always love when the author makes the secondary characters so lovable that you want to hear their stories too. Bodine has done this. Juliana's aunt had me laughing out loud at her comments and the secondary love story was an added bonus. I will definitely be reading the other two stories with related characters in them. It appears that Bodine no longer writes historical romance, which is a shame because I would have liked to read her current work.

    Thanks go to NetGalley and Diversion Books for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

    I believe this is the first time I have read a book of Sherrill's. I liked this story. It wasn't too serious but there were plenty of twists to keep you interested. It is set in the Napoleonic era and battles set some of the tone of the story. Juliana was only married a few weeks when her husband went off to war and was killed. She set him up as a martyr and hid in the country. Her Aunt Sophia set things up to get her back into life. That is the intro for Dominick. He has horrible memories of his youth. He can't move on until he faces his past. I will be searching for more books by Sherrill. Read this book. You won't regret it.
