Publisher's Summary

Jo Beverley pens romance novels of immense appeal, as evidenced by her frequent appearances on the New York Times best-seller list. In this installment of Beverley’s Georgian Secrets trilogy, young Dorcas Caroline Froggatt rushes into marriage with a soldier who defends her honor. Supposedly killed soon after going off to war, the erstwhile groom again figures in Dorcas’ life when, years later, she attempts to marry another.

Not what I expected after reading the reviews

There are some lovely reviews left for this book and some talked about how exciting they found the story and some said they could not put the book down due to excitement. However I neither found the book exciting nor interesting. If anything I found it a bit silly. This story line going from her being devoted to a husband she did not know and wearing a ring that he had not even given her to her doubting if she should stay married since she planned on holding on to her money after all. As if that is a choice after they were married already and by law he owned all. Completely silly and not much of a storyline.
