Byron mourns for her fiancé who was killed in battle in the
Napoleonic War more than a year ago. She has nightmares about his
death on the battlefield. Her childhood friend, Adam, the Earl of
Gresham, is attending a family party at the Byron estate. Hearing
Mallory's cries in a nightmare he goes to her room to comfort her.
Being tired he falls asleep while comforting her. Her brother finds
him and does not understand their innocence. To prevent a duel with
her brother Mallory accepts Adam's proposal.
Adam has always
been in love with Mallory but felt the age difference was a problem.
Now married, he must convince her that his love is a true feeling
and intends to persuade her to let go of the feelings for her dead
fiancé. She must move on to become her old self and stop
mourning. He continues to court her and make her love him.
This is a delightful
story of friends who become lovers. The characters are engaging
and true to life. The author has evoked a sense of time and place.
There are some hot and smoldering love scenes to add spice to the
story. A very enjoyable book to help chase the hours away.
