Captain Charles Bevin left Mary three years ago to rejoin his regiment in the Peninsular War. Since he’s been gone, Mary has struggled to raise her young son while working to save her family’s pub from her stepfather’s creditors. To retain control of her livelihood, Mary was forced to pretend she and Charles had wed before he’d left, and that he’d died in battle. Under English law, a widow has more rights than a wife.
Charles returns to England after a harrowing experience in Spain hoping to renew his relationship with Mary. He is stunned to walk into her pub and discover that everyone believes they are already married. With Mary in danger of losing everything, can Charles overcome her fear of betrayal to convince her to make their marriage real, and capture her heart once again?

Award winning author Georgie Lee was born and raised in San Diego where she also attended college, majoring in television and film production. She began her professional writing career at a local cable TV station writing marketing videos, promotional spots and public service announcements, some of which still haunt the airwaves. Blinded by the dazzling lights of Hollywood, she headed north to Los Angeles where she earned her MA in Screenwriting, and settled into a career in the interesting but strange world of the entertainment industry. A lifelong history buff, Georgie hasn’t given up hope that she will one day inherit a title and a manor house. Until then, she fulfills her dreams of lords, ladies and a season in London through her stories. When not writing, she can be found reading non-fiction history or watching any movie with a costume and an accent.
