Married in haste, to the wrong man...
Blanche wed Lieutenant Colonel Seymour in search of a hero to replace the French military father she never knew, only to find herself stranded in Northumberland, in a penniless marriage, with no recourse.
Blanche's cousin, Neil Williams, now a decorated Major, returns from the colonies to rejoin the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers. Her husband, as Neil's superior officer, makes Neil's life intolerable, as well as her own. Blanche learns that the truly courageous are defined by their actions and that Seymour is not one of them, for what he does to Neil defies imagination...

Praise for Ashes of Pride:
You must get this amazing book and if you haven't read the series, well I just don't know what you're waiting for.
So realistic that I felt like I was there. Such a great story and setting.
Another magnificent addition to this series.
Tracy Cooper Posey never lets her fans down.
Sch an amazing read. Once I started reading I could not stop till I was finished.
This was one of the greatest books yet, as far as this grand family goes.
I was surprised how much this book actually moved me & read it again, as for loving the whole family & gatherings as I do. I really enjoyed & got totally immersed in this one.
Oh Tracy what a brilliant read yet again, but for some reason this book got to me. Thank you.
This isn't a light and frothy book. None of her books are - they always teach you something and make you think about something in a new light. And that's why I keep reading them - there's always something I didn't expect.
Yet another marvelous book by TCP! She has yet to disappoint me.
Pride can get you into a lot of trouble. I really liked this book ...
Tracy Cooper-Posey once again manages to create an historical romance with substance.
I absolutely recommend Ashes of Pride and all of Tracy Cooper-Posey's books.
I love this series and could not wait for this next book and my wait was rewarded. I loved this book
I really enjoyed the heck out of this book. The characters are wonderful and interesting. I almost feel as if they're out there waiting for us to meet
As usual I found myself totally engrossed in this novel as I was reading it. Tracy's books have this effect upon me.
Cooper-Posey has such an engaging way of storytelling, that you feel you are actually sitting in the same room, watching the events unfold
The best so far in the continuing saga of the Great Family.
Wow! This one had me from the start! I never expected their story to move me so much!
An angst filled story that had me crying and cheering and blubbering...almost all at once!
This is an amazing story that kept me turning the pages and missing some sleep. I had to find out how the story was going to work out.
An awesome, emotion tugging, marvelous book. Tracy Cooper-Posey has written another great one.
One of many reasons why I like to read Tracy's stories, it's never predictable.
A smoldering romance and this is another must-read in the series.
