Lady Grace Ryburn has accepted another man’s proposal after the love of her life, Lieutenant Colin Barry, asked for her own sister’s hand in marriage.
But when Colin returns home from the wars, injured in body and spirit, will she be able to turn her back and marry another? Or will she throw away every rule her mother taught her and try to seduce a man who has shown no interest in her kisses?
In this installment of Grace and Colin’s story, Colin returns home to England after being injured by cannonball fire. When Grace discovers that he’s been injured she immediately jumps to action to be his caretaker and to seduce him.
Grace proved that she knew her own heart and was going to follow what her heart wanted, even if in the end she was hurt. She was determined to care for Colin and was willing to go against her parents wishes to do so, knowing what that would mean for her socially. She knew how she felt about Colin and she needed to take care of him, no matter how he might feel about her.
Poor Colin spent most of this installment in a drug induced stooper, but we get a first hand look at exactly how he feels about Grace. His confusion about the events that led to the coaching inn may have made made things worse with Grace, but her stubbornness in not letting him speak his mind on what his feelings are for her are what really led to the ending of the story.
I’m on pins and needles waiting for Part 3. Grace and Colin are a couple I’m pulling for, if they can get pas their own thoughts and biases. If you haven’t done so already, pick up Part I. This is one series that you must read in order and you don’t want to miss out on this couple.
