Miss Valencia Ravensdale was only supposed to observe the festivities at her aunt’s masquerade ball on New Year’s Eve, 1814, but when the handsome Colonel Robert Clayworth sees her holding up the walls, everything changes. Valencia finds herself falling in love with the Colonel, but he only has the one night in London before he has to rejoin his troops in France.

As the London Season progresses, Valencia is inundated with offers for her hand, but no man has been able to turn her head the way her Colonel has.

Can their instant connection, and her heart survive the war with France?

Gripping. Beautifully read. Enchanting.

A regency treat. An intoxicating reading by the narrator too. I wasn’t familiar with this story, so a really nice find.

Such a lovely listen!

Such a lovely listen! I was looking for some escapism and can highly recommend this. A delightful romantic tale set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. I was completely swept away by the spellbinding narration. Beautifully written. Beautifully read.

Beautiful Regency Romance 🌹

I fell in love with this beautiful and well performed storyline! Who would have known that the beautiful Miss. Valencia would find love at first sight! Colonel Robert, is the second son to an Earl. England is trying to defeat Napoleon. It’s so funny the nicknames they give him! This is a wonderful and refreshing listen! The storyline flowed well and I loved the characters. Love at a distance, especially when war is imminent made it a bit suspenseful. I really enjoyed this great listen! Thank you to the author for this beautiful book in exchange for an honest review!

A Magical Beginning

Miss Valencia Ravensdale, dressed as an angel, attended her aunt’s masquerade ball on New Year’s Eve, obediently staying out of the way and watching only, as she was instructed to do by her mother and father. Looking around the room, wishing he were not here, Colonel Robert Clayworth suddenly spotted a young lady with beautiful porcelain skin. She was stunning – why had no one asked her to dance? Then he observed her turning several men away and determined that he would ask her to dance. She explained why she couldn’t, so he offered only a turn around the floor once, which should not upset her mother. But he is preparing to return to the war in France in just a few days and regrets that they won’t get to know each other better. They dance through many songs in the garden among the trees. She wanted to stay in his arms forever! Nevertheless, his time with her was enough for her to realize the depth of her feelings for him. Despite numerous offers of marriage later, there is no one who makes her feel like he did. Will she stay faithful to him until he returns? Will he come back to find her if he survives the war? This is a beautiful story that will capture the reader’s heart. It made me almost afraid to read further and find out whether all sorts of possible endings would ruin this perfect love. Don’t miss this one. It will touch your heart to see how faithful Valencia remains to the man she loved, regardless of how short a time they had together to get to know each other. Will they find their HEA? Or will she be left alone when the war is over? I was fortunate to listen to the audiobook version of this book. The narrator, Victoria Riley, did a wonderful job in bringing life into the already breathtaking story. No doubt about it, this is an awesome book I highly recommend!
