The wounded war hero is a familiar character in Regency romances (after all, the Napoleonic War presents such a golden opportunity for this), and I am always interested to see how authors, like Elizabeth Boyle, who favor a lighter tone in their romances will handle such a hero. You don’t want to downplay the severity of the hero’s experiences, but you also don’t want to totally throw a damper on the light, fizzy feel of the book. I think she strikes that careful balance quite well in this book, because of the setup for the hero and heroine’s interactions (namely, the hero has turned into a sort of recluse since returning from the war, but the heroine moves in next door and is constantly in the hero’s house and yard, cleaning up stuff and generally managing his household). A rather busybody heroine was the perfect fit for a somewhat reclusive, damaged hero, and watching their relationship develop over the course of this book was thoroughly enjoyable.

Sweet, but slight. I would have liked to either have more of how Wakefield overcomes his demons, having a glimpse of his life with Louisa after marriage, or more of Lavinia's story.
