Review of Once A Soldier by Mary Jo Putney

The first book in The Rogues Redeemed Series is a wonderful start.  Not only do you get a thrilling new story you have a hero who was a character in The Lost Lords series.  

Will is a soldier and a Baron who is finally going home to England after years of fighting in the war against Napoleon.  But before he goes home he agrees to go to the small kingdom of San Gabriel and evaluate and help rebuild this small country that had suffered so much in the war with the French.  When he arrives he discovers an English woman who is the friend and confidante of the Royal Princess of San Gabriel. Athena is a strong capable woman who is level headed, smart and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to her adopted country and her friend the Princess.

As always with a book by Mary Jo Putney the historical accuracy, amazing descriptions and the emotional impact of the events and people are simply perfect.  This is a story of two individuals that meet in a foreign land and discover how much they have in common.  The love story is breathtaking and this book is a must read for anyone who loves a beautifully written Historical Romance.

I absoulutely recommend this book because if you haven't read a Mary Jo Putney book you are really missing out!!!
