Summary

Nathaniel Fleming, veteran of Waterloo, falls in love with his Major's spinster sister, Harriet. But Nathaniel is not what he seems, and before the wedding, the truth will come out....

Eleanor Charlotte Fleming, forgotten daughter of a minor baronet, stakes her life on a deception and -makes her name - if not her fortune - on the battlefield. 

Her war at an end, she returns to England as Captain Nathaniel Fleming and wants nothing more than peace, quiet, and the company of horses. Instead, Captain Fleming meets Harriet. Harriet has averted the calamity of matrimony for a decade, cares little for the cut of her gowns, and is really rather clever. Falling in love is not a turn of the cards either of them expected.  

Harriet accepts Captain Fleming, but will she accept Eleanor? Along the way, there are ballrooms, stillrooms, mollyhouses, society intrigue, and sundering circumstance.

Fantastic

I was really looking forward to listening to this book and it did not disappoint.

I was entertained all the way through the book.

It had a nice love story between Nathaniel (Eleanor) and Harriet.

It was well written and narrated.

Beautiful!

This story was wonderful to listen to! Funny at times, intriguing, sad, exhilarating, it had it all. I held my breath at the end waiting to know what would happen! Violet Dixon’s narration was so lovely to hear, I want to find more from her just to hear her voice!

Meh.

I found the story telling to be erratic, and the characted/plot development lacking. I could not get past 2 hours of listening. It just didn't hold my interest.
