Spending six years in the war was all Damien Knight could take but when he came home he still couldn’t seem to get it out of his head. Reliving moments of the war during his dreams and even in his waking hours. Hearing that one of his comrades had died finally gave him something to do, Jason had left him as the guardian of his niece. She had been left at the boarding school and virtually ignored by her Uncles for so long, Miranda FitzHubert was shocked to hear her guardian was there. It wasn’t Uncle Jason, but the stranger who had turned wild the night before to save her life. Together Damien and Miranda set of for the Knight house, the hope of a new life for Miranda and maybe hope for Damien too.
**** 4 star - Book 3.…. This is a really good Historical Romance, the emotional connection to Damien is well written. Such a strong and courageous hero, then showing a very vulnerable side - without it being odd or obvious. Keeping Miranda so innocent but giving her such experience and a traumatic past. Well done - and with the inclusion of Napoleon (and the war), so much of the Knight family (Robert, Bel, Lucien, Alice, Alec, and Jacinda), all the action (several intense fight scenes), and the romance, this is a great example of a good series. Now that the twins are happy and healthy with their little families, I want to know more about Jack, but I will be looking for the next book (Lady of Desire) which seems to be Jacinda's story.
