Does she love him enough to let him go?
After three straight days working beside surgeon Will Kennaway to treat the wounded of Waterloo, Amelia Hartwell collapses on the nearest bed to sleep. Surely she can be forgiven for not caring that the warm body sleeping next to hers is Will’s.
Amelia’s status-hungry mother, however, couldn’t be more pleased to have an excuse to get the painfully shy, socially awkward Amelia married off, albeit to a less-than-ultra-rich husband.
Will doesn’t keep his title a deep, dark secret. His little-known earldom simply affords him the financial freedom to focus solely on healing the sick. But now that he has a wife to think about—and to admire, thanks to her unstinting bravery at Waterloo—he reluctantly takes up the mantle of earl to do his duty.
Missing her meaningful work as a nurse, Amelia finds herself floundering in society’s glaring spotlight, wondering if Will regrets being forced to marry. Perhaps it might even be better to give him his freedom, even if doing so will break her heart…

Ok book. If u like simple, boring books this it. Good idea but went badly. Dont waste your money.
Amelia Hartwell loves working aside Will Kennaway in the hospital. She would much rather be there then trying to catch a society husband as her mother wishes. After working for three days straight, Amelia collapses in the nearest bed only to wake hours later to feel Will's warm body next to hers. Amelia's mother catches them in bed together but is so determined to marry her off to a wealthy peer that she lets it all go. Knowing that Amelia doesn't want to marry the man her mother has picked out for her, Will offers himself as a husband. As Amelia has had feelings for Will since they met, she accepts his proposal. What happens when she finds out the Will has a title and they must go back to London so Will can fulfill his duty as the earl? Will they ever find the happiness they shared while in the hospital? I enjoyed this story. You don't often find an earl working as a surgeon because that is what he enjoys doing. We go from the battlefield to the ballroom following this couple and their journey to love. Because to lack of communication we see their journey take many twists and turns. It is finally when they talk to one another and get back to what they both love that they find the love that they both need. If you are looking for an enjoyable short read, then this is the book for you. I look forward to reading more by this author. Thanks go out to Samhain Publishing via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
This was a good book. Lynne has given us a real good look at how things were with Waterloo. Will has become a surgeon. This will show us how the surgical business is changed.Amelia is his assistant and runs his cases and helps with his operations. She has found that if you take the worst cases first you save a whole lot more of patients. Then her mother visits. Big Spoiler. She is still trying to marry Amelia to Sir Henry. Spoiler. Will has loved Amelia for awhile. She loves him. They hide it. They agree to marry. Wellington, Will' s relative, tells him to go back to England as Will is also an Earl. Spoiler. There is another family problem. You have to read to find out how this is solved. I really liked this book. Will and Amelia were made for each other. Thank you for this book Lynne! I hope you choose to read their story! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.
