Publisher's Summary

She has loved him for as long as she remembers. He is fast discovering his newfound attachment. And now they may never see each other again.

Phoebe Tunstall has lived her entire life in the shadow of her outgoing twin sister and in service to her maiden aunt. When she suddenly finds herself alone and free of all responsibility to others, she decides to heed the challenge thrown out by the man she has long admired - her brother's best friend, Lord Ingram. 

Frederick Ingram is reeling from the shock of learning that his first love has married someone else upon mere weeks' acquaintance. Filled with frustration, he is unable to watch his friend's little sister, Phoebe, living meekly and waiting for happiness to come to her. He tells her to live more boldly. What he does not expect is for her to take it to heart and travel to Brussels as Napoleon begins his march northward. 

Frederick arrives in Brussels for his military duty and - contrary to his expectation - does not find Phoebe cowering in fear at the threat of the emperor's invasion. Instead, she appears to be the center of society with every male eye in the city on her. Phoebe is eager to show Frederick exactly what he has been missing out on all these years, and he is finally ready to declare his love. 

Then war breaks out.

Delightful

This was another delightful story by Jennie Goutet. Honestly I wish that she could produce a book a month because I would read every one.

After finishing the second book in the series, I was very much hoping for Phoebe to get her own story so I was delighted to begin this one.

Phoebe and Freddie are a delightful pair who grabbed my heart immediately. I cheered throughout for their HEA. I loved that I was familiar with most of the supporting characters from previous stories… so I was happy to also read updates on their continued lives.

I also loved that, although Phoebe has loved Frederick for so many years, she accepts his dare to live more boldly and chooses to find her inner strength to move on with her life. Of course this then opens his eyes when he realizes the gem she is as other men are drawn to this young woman who truly is no longer a child or “just his best friend’s little sister.”

I always enjoy getting some solid historical background which makes the story all that much more believable. This was certainly the case for this book.

I give this one 5 stars for the story as well as the narration.

It’s okay

I love that it’s clean, and I generally enjoy this author’s work. This one has a simple plot line that didn’t pull me in. I’ll still look for more of her work in case this is a one-off or in case it’s just my frame of mind lately. Give it a try, since clean Regencies are so difficult to find.

Engrossing

Great detail on the Battle of Waterloo in the closing chapters. A lovely love story too. The narrator pronounced 'cavalry' as 'calvary' throughout which was extremely irritating.
