Tarleton's Wife by Blair Bancroft

Julia Litchfield is a “daughter of the regiment.” Statuesque, independent, courageous, closer to handsome than pretty. Not at all the petite, sweet type her father’s aide-de-camp, Major Nicholas Tarleton, prefers. But on the night before a battle in Spain, Colonel Litchfield wagers his only daughter in a game of cards. What can an officer and a gentleman do but save her from ignominy? Marriage, however, is not what Nicholas has in mind.

Yet after the battle, with the colonel dead and the major dying, Nicholas marries Julia to keep a roof over her head, precipitating a dramatic situation eighteen months later just as she has become a heroine to Nicholas’s tenant farmers and is developing an interest in a new man in her life. The final resolution of this conflict of love and honor might have challenged Solomon himself.

Author’s Note: Tarleton’s Wife is an award-winning Regency Historical that has been in almost continual distribution since 1999. Prior to this publication on Smashwords, it has had two print editions and four digital editions. In all that time, neither the title nor the story has changed.

About the Author

Blair Bancroft recalls receiving odd looks from adults as she walked home from school at age seven, her lips moving as she told herself stories. And there was never a night she didn't entertain herself with her own bedtime stories. But it was only after a variety of other careers that she turned to serious writing. Blair has been a music teacher, professional singer, non-fiction editor, costume designer, and real estate agent. She has traveled from Bratsk, Siberia, to Machu Picchu, Peru, and made numerous visits to Europe, Britain, and Ireland. She is now attempting to incorporate all these varied experiences into her writing. Blair's first book, TARLETON'S WIFE, won RWA's Golden Heart and the Best Romance award from the Florida Writers' Association. Her romantic suspense novel, SHADOWED PARADISE, and her Young Adult Medieval, ROSES IN THE MIST, were finalists for an EPPIE, the "Oscar" of the e-book industry. Blair's Regency, THE INDIFFERENT EARL, was chosen as Best Regency by Romantic Times magazine and was a finalist for RWA's RITA award. Blair believes variety is the spice of life. Her recent books include Historical Romance, Romantic Suspense, Mystery, Thrillers, and Steampunk, all available at Smashwords. A long-time resident of Florida, Blair fondly recalls growing up in Connecticut, which still has a piece of her heart.
