It was okay 2.5 The writing appeared a little simple for my liking I liked the historical backdrop of Badajoz and Waterloo The plot started out well and the book has a honourable, worthy hero in Gabriel but I am not sure about the heroine Although she loves Gabriel, she does not show it and appears throughout the story to use him for her own ends And one has to wonder how Gabriel did not

one for plots that rely on misconceptions that do not pan out until the very last Although the sons hatred for the British was understandable, I also found it a little hard to understand how he could extend that to Gabriel after all he had done Gabriel saved his life three times and he was still an ungrateful little sop, and therefore not very likable You may like it It had good historical input

wanted to make her happy, even if it came at a cost to himself and giving up his dreams of settling down and leaving the army.Emmaline was so sweet too She d regretted not speaking up when she

to take what she wants, to not always give in because what she is doing is displeasing to the men she s tried so hard to please I must admit I enjoyed her supposed French attitude to liaisons outside marriage She was very accepting of others mistakes She even admits, was she not Gabriel s mistress for a time What was wrong with these prudish English people I enjoyed that the story was not centred around the aristocracy as so many regency romances are, but looked at the middle classes who also went to war and suffered because of it Well written and presented I really enjoyed this book A far superior offering to many others in this genre A gallant hero, a wonderful heroine, generous but torn between what her responsibilities and her desires.Brit Gabriel meets French Emmaline in Spain
