Written almost entirely from the hero's point of view, this book didn't get really interesting until about halfway through. As a story, it was fantastic. Very gripping and informative about the ugly things that happen during war, and how men can turn into animals. As a romance, I found it lacking. I like more romantic interaction, and I'm not talking about physical things as much as emotional, than was depicted in this particular story. Many earlier Carla Kelly romances, most read over a decade ago, are some of my favorite books.

Sequel to Libby's London Merchant. I enjoyed it more than Libby, and I loved Libby.

What a wonderful story from Carla Kelly. It was exceptional! The story was about war and the ravages of war at its ugliest. I had to skip parts because they would linger in my mind too long. Ms. Kelly didn't sugar coat anything. What she did to soften its impact is to give us characters that had a lighter side that made you concentrate more on the good of living than the evil of war. I recommend it to you.

Could Liria Valencia be Benjamin Nesbitt's second chance at love? Only if they can see past their differences and come to terms with a painful past.

This is a continuation from 'Libby's London Merchant.' When Libby turns down Duke Benedict's offer of marriage, he begins searching his soul as to why Libby would turn down a man with everything for an overweight physician. Benedict finds that he does not like the answers. He decides that he must become a better person, in order to find a wife. Using Libby and Tony for models, Benedict makes conscious efforts to become a more caring person.

I was so committed to Libby and Benedict as a couple, that I had to wait for almost a year to finish the second book. This book is much more like Kellys'Daughter of Fortune (1985), The Double Cross (2013) and Marco and the Devil's Bargain (2014). In these novels, the author's sharing of history is more central to the book than a romance. Warring sides rarely settled disputes with soft words and polite handshakes; they were often settled with grief, heartache and bloody wars (and many losses). Carla Kelly certain brings home the horror of war in telling the story of Liria Valencia.
