A very engaging and lovely novella by Victoria. I was hooked from the first paragraph. This is the story of two people who have known each other most of their lives. Henrietta was just one of the boys when she was younger, now she is a young lady who has had a Season and did not take. So now she is watching all of her siblings getting married and does not want to end up a spinster dependent of her brother.
Julian comes home from the war alone, his best friend died and he feels that it should have been him. He feels guilty that he survived. His uncle has left him penniless and he will have to sell everything to satisfy his creditors and then he has no choice but to go back to Portugal as a Soldier of Fortune,or so he believes.
Henrietta has a plan but will Julian go along with it?
Victoria has written a very compelling story that you can sit down and read in one night. The sensual scenes are hot and the love story is wonderful.
Received a complimentary copy for an honest review.
