January 2017

When the war was over, Lieutenant Kate Russell would marry a man with a pedigree as sound as her own. Because confidence, beauty and privilege were advantages she took for granted; and besides her aristocratic parents had great plans for her:

Then she met Robert Campbell, a mere staff driver. Handsome in a rugged, rawboned sort of way, his lack of breeding both excited and intrigued her. Her family, initially outraged by the proposal, would only accept their marriage if Robert climbed the ranks of the army. But when peace is declared and Robert achieves the rank of Major, Kate finds she has her own bitter and personal war to contend with. Trapped by her parents' possessive demands, tormented by Robert's passionate but wayward love, she fights her own lonely battle to save her marriage and her reputation...
