Abigail Westcott's dreams for her future were lost when her father died and she discovered her parents were not legally married. But now, six years later, she enjoys the independence a life without expectation provides a wealthy single woman. Indeed, she's grown confident enough to scold the careless servant chopping wood outside without his shirt on in the proximity of ladies. But the man is not a servant. He is Gilbert Bennington, the lieutenant colonel and superior officer who has escorted her wounded brother, Harry, home from the wars with Napoleon. Gil has come to help his friend and junior officer recover, and he doesn't take lightly to being condescended to -- secretly because of his own humble beginnings. If at first Gil and Abigail seem to embody what the other most despises, each will soon discover how wrong first impressions can be. For behind the appearances of the once-grand lady and the once-humble man are two people who share an understanding of what true honor means, and how only with it can one find love

This is a very Mary Balogh-y Mary Balogh book (a sentence that makes zero sense, but bear with me). It is polite and sort of soothing in the way that I find all of her books to be, and I felt like the hero and heroine were nice people who were also sort of perfect for each other. Which is, of course, the feeling you want to take away from a romance novel! I do think this was one of her more sedate novels – which is just generally the direction she trends towards as a writer, and I say this as someone who genuinely likes her a lot and has read a large portion of her backlist – and it wasn’t as compelling as her best work (see the Bedwyn Saga, THOSE BOOKS ARE SO GOOD), but it was a perfectly enjoyable weekend read, and I’m looking forward to seeing which Westcott family member gets their happy ending next. (Harry? Jessica? Who?)
