Alexander Devize, Earl of Standish, went off to war and left behind Diana, the seventeen year-old girl that he loved, a girl with whom he had grown up, a girl who was a commoner but was a distant cousin of his mother. He's returned home after three years, but she won't forgive his choice of going to war instead of staying with her.
I bought this book because it was written by Joan Wolf whose books I really enjoyed in the past. However, I was disappointed with this story. It just wasn't typical Joan Wolf fare.

Confusing... I think there's too many matches being made in this book. And I don't know where the back description came from. While it's basically true, there is no suc person as Robert Welbourne--the man Diana is pursuing is named Edward.

This is Joan Wolf's latest book. Story a little slow to start out but a pleasant read.

The eldest son of the Earl of Standish and heir to his late father's holdings, Alexander Devize is summoned home to his duties in England. Waiting for him, he believes, is Diana Sherwood, the irrepressible beauty with whom he shared an unforgettable night of passion, a young woman he fully intends to marry. But Diana, lovelier and more headstrong than ever, has other intentions.

A soldier's daughter, Diana refuses to suffer the harsh world of being a soldier's wife and plans instead her coming out in London, ignoring the memories of wild and reckless Alex.

Convinced she's found the proper, stable gentleman in Robert Welbourne, she pursues her course, unaware of a treachery building around her -- or of the unwavering devotion of a soldier willing to fight for all he's worth in a battle he must not lose.

Another good one by this author. I enjoy all of her books. In this story, Alex, the Earl of Standish, returns from the war after Napolean's defeat, certain that Diana is waiting for him, and ready to manage his estate. But, Diana believes that Alex deserted her, and cannot trust him again. She refuses his proposal, and looks for a more mature husband. Alex is not convinced that she doesn't love him anymore, and is patiently waiting her out.
