About the Book:
He’s doing what he can to save the Prince Regent’s life . . . but can he save his new marriage as well? Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero–he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn’t think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.
Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn’t have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there’s something he can’t quite remember. It’s important, dangerous–and if he doesn’t recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone’s very life.
I love a good Regency story, and this one was a lovely tale indeed. The story moved along at a decent pace, and kept me intrigued the entire duration, leaving me a little sad to leave its pages upon completion. And the snippet for the next book only left me wanting more too. ^.^One of my favorite ‘tropes’ in novels are marriage of convenience stories, and this one rather fit that bill. It was really great to get to know the characters and watch how they grew despite being thrown together in a manner they didn’t necessarily wish. How it all drew to conclusion was quite satisfying as well, and I liked seeing everything tied up in the end! The whole story was delightfully done, and I am eager to continue with the series!
