Overview

True desire always finds a way . . .

On the night before the final battle against Napoleon, Lady Delphine St. James finds herself dancing with the one man she has always wanted, Major Lord Stephen Ives. He makes it clear he has no time for a lady he sees as flirtatious and silly, but as the call to arms sounds, she bids him farewell with a kiss that stirs them both. When he returns gravely injured, she is intent on caring for him, even if his surly behavior tests her patience.

After the battle, Stephen is not only wounded and blind, but falsely accused of cowardice and theft. The only light in his dark world is Delphine, the one woman he never imagined he could desire. But she deserves more than he can give her.

As their feelings deepen and hidden enemies conspire to force them to part forever, can their love survive the cruelest test of all?

Cornwall’s nifty Regency meanders a bit, but it boasts a solid story with plenty of plot twists. On the eve of a definitive battle against Napoleon’s army, Lady Delphine St. James eyes Royal Dragoon Major Lord Stephen Ives across a crowded ballroom. Though he barely registers her presence, she boldly sets forth to greet him personally and wish him luck in the upcoming fight. When drunken Captain Rothdale intervenes, requesting a dance from Delphine, Stephen smartly rescues her. After being wounded and blinded in the battle, Stephen recovers all but his sight under Delphine’s tender care. But fellow Dragoons accuse him of theft and cowardice under fire, and the evil Rothdale has his eyes on Delphine’s dowry. Cornwall steadily develops both characters and plot, and the reader’s hopes ebb and flow with Stephen and Delphine’s shifting fates. (Sept.)
