    Mary Winters and Nick Stanton contract a secret marriage just before he leaves for Waterloo Seven years later we find Mary acting as governess to Nick s son, having given him away when Nick doesn t come to find her after the war There s a LOT that happens before they reach their HEA no spoilers.I was surprised at some of the reviews as I thought the hero and heroine behaved appropriately after their separation They had a lot to overcome and it took a while, so I didn t think either was part Mary Winters and Nick Stanton contract a secret marriage just before he leaves for Waterloo Seven years later we find Mary acting as governess to Nick s son, having given him away when Nick doesn t come to find her after the war There s a LOT that happens before they reach their HEA no spoilers.I was surprised at some of the reviews as I thought the hero and heroine behaved appropriately after their separation They had a lot to overcome and it took a while, so I didn t think either was particularly out of character My biggest problem is that there were plenty of various events crammed into this story, and it became a bit much for me There s smuggling, kidnappings, attempted rape, attempted murder, shootings, and so on A small matter, but I really didn t understand why everyone, including Nick, calls her Mary Winters even after their marriage It bugged me after a while.All in all, an okay and quick read

    I actually dislike this bookbecause I loved the beginning so much How the H H met and consummated their love was really romantic and cute, but their older selves were a bit stupid I can understand the heroine s anger and bitterness towards the hero, but I really feel that she should ve given him a bitof forgiveness and a chance to redeem himself, especially since she was a vicar s daughter Her young self was so full of promise and sweet..and kind, as a vicar s daughter should be I actually dislike this bookbecause I loved the beginning so much How the H H met and consummated their love was really romantic and cute, but their older selves were a bit stupid I can understand the heroine s anger and bitterness towards the hero, but I really feel that she should ve given him a bitof forgiveness and a chance to redeem himself, especially since she was a vicar s daughter Her young self was so full of promise and sweet..and kind, as a vicar s daughter should be Her older self before she meets the hero is still pretty decent and kind, but the author makes the heroine into a horrible, petty, mean, vengeful woman, inconsistent with the character I began to like Also, the hero should ve explained things to her off the bat and not held on to any secrets That was frustrating And honestly, I don t know why they didn t just steal their son back and she hadn t takenimmediate steps to get her son away from an abusive, cruel man 1 stars for the prologue of the book, but that s about it
