Captain John Staple’s exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet Crazy Jack amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peacetime is rather dull for the adventure-loving Captain. But when he finds himself lost at an unmanned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime.
More action, less manners - but vintage Heyer

Great romantic story with sufficient action and humour to please anyone
My only request is that the Reader should not have pronounced so many words incorrectly.
