The war with France still waged, but Daniel Linfield’s days of fighting have been ended after finding himself on the wrong side of a French bayonet. Sent home with a promise to his best friend to look in on his sister, Daniel is looking forward to a quiet recovery before taking over the running of his grandfather’s estate. He certainly was not anticipating the complications that would arise from his promise.

Cassandra Rutley is determined to find an escape from her step-family. Particularly the unwanted attentions of her step-brother. With no marriage prospects, she is left with finding a position as a governess or companion. Daniel’s unexpected return to the neighborhood creates commotion during an already tumultuous visit from her step-mother’s sister and niece who have set their sites on the wounded soldier.

The solution seems obvious to Daniel: wed Cassandra and flee before either can be trapped in a marriage with an undesirable partner. But can they get away so easily? Has he returned from war only to face his fiercest battle yet?
