Publisher's Summary

Following his best-selling title The Nizam's Daughters, this is Mallinson's third novel in the acclaimed series combining accurate historical details, breathtaking battles and an involving plot.

It is 1817, and Captain Matthew Hervey has returned from his bloody battles in India to find England in political and economic disorder. The lack of a professional constabulary means the task of policing has become attributed to the army, particularly the cavalry.

Despite the chaos surrounding him, Hervey develops a passionate relationship with Lady Henrietta Lindsey. This results in a marriage that will alter his life and future dramatically.

During battle, a new commanding officer develops a deep hatred for him and withholds a dark secret. Tension amounts as their futures are about to collide, and the consequences will be devastating.

bitter sweet

thourghly engaging story continuing the career of our hero Mathew Hervey. the characters grow with each novel as Mathew and his troop/regiment are posted to new and varied areas. extremely well written but more enjoyable narated by errick graham, whom I must praise with the highest regard.
