A beautiful young woman—preferably one with no connections, who won’t ask too many questions—to spend two weeks in the North of England with an obstinate, aloof, and utterly handsome man.

Must love dogs, fixing up crumbling castles, and gorgeous and complicated war heroes who may or may not be hiding hearts of gold under their gruff exteriors.

Must not, under any circumstances, fall in love . . .

Simpering misses need not apply.

This little story might be the best Regency Romance I've read this year. Don't let the adorable back cover copy fool you. This is a serious, heartfelt, emotional story that had me near tears several times. It was as sweet and genuine as the hero himself. And this is to say nothing of the prose. Sabrina Darby writes beautifully. Her language is a delight to read aloud--which I did, at several points. I left this story both moved and grinning ear to ear.

This story was wonderful! The characters were real people, with thought provoking circumstances going on in their lives. The author has a way with words that makes you connect and feel.for the characters. It is difficult cor words to cause emotions so strong, but this book "got to me" I will wait a while and read it again. Fantastic book!

I love this gem of a novella. Mother dearest thinks if she can get her shy, scarred son seduced, he’ll then be ready to marry ( a woman of the right sort, of course) and beget grandchildren. Priming the pump, as it were. Angelina is no Angel, even if that becomes her nickname. I really liked that she was not a missish, scared virgin, but a woman who, while young, already had a man or two in her past. Sometimes pleasant, sometimes disappointing. (Who hasn’t?) She likes sex, she’s broke, and she finds this tall, muscular man extremely attractive. Triple win! John (or Georgie, as his mother likes to call him) is a former soldier, working out his PTSD through restoring his tumbledown castle in peaceful solitude. Although she’s a bit annoying, he’s drawn to Angelina, and learns to enjoy her company. In and out of the makeshift bed. His dog even likes, her, too. Angelina has Issues of her own to work out. Falling in love is no part of her plan, but... hey, this is a romance. We know how it’s got to end, but it gets there in a particularly sweet and satisfying way, on the part of both John and Angelina, with a few twists and turns along the way.

With the historical scope and richness of Gone With the Wind and the passion of Rogers and Woodiwiss, Cindy Nord sculpts the Civil War saga, No Greater Glory, with a deft hand. Her historical details are rich and her obvious passion for the time period is evident. She pulls you into the hell of Civil War battles. You can smell the death and regret. At the same time she shows us how two people; one confederate, one union manage to find each other and find love amid turmoil. I loved this story and I look forward to her other books.
