A sweet and touching romance about an emotionally, physically, and mentally wounded ex-soldier who suffers from extreme PTSD. He connects with a woman whose father is a top General and whom, we eventually learn, had an unwitting hand in the hero's capture and torture by the enemy. The "Lessons in Love" theme is very peripheral in this book of the series, thankfully.

The story is well told and well paced. It isn't very steamy. Suzanne Enoch is a fan of love scenes that are told quickly and where women feel no pain, embarrassment, or fear. So unrealistic that it takes you out of the story, but fortunately (unfortunately?) she spends very little space on this part of the tale.

The story wrapped-up very quickly and had no epilogue, which was a little disappointment.

Very good romance. From Publishers Weekly:
With Enoch's latest (after London's Perfect Scoundrel), which ties up her Lessons in Love series, she delves beneath the superficialities of glittering balls and perfectly tied cravats to focus on the wounds borne by Robert Carroway, a supposed hero of Waterloo but in reality a former prisoner of war who can barely steel himself to converse with his family, much less waltz with debutantes. But a chance encounter with Lucinda Barrett, easy conversationalist as well as regular waltzer, leads him to hope that he could have a normal life. Lucinda, who has her sights set on a duke's fourth son, is surprised when Robert offers to help her gain him, and even more surprised when her encounters with Robert grow more important than the success of her campaign. But her beloved father's dismissal of Robert as "damaged goods," followed by implications that Robert may be a traitor, could stunt his recovery as well as their relationshipunless Lucinda listens to her heart and trusts him. Lucinda's refusal to treat Robert as less than a whole man and Robert's sharp sense of humor give this charming tale depth, and Enoch balances it well with a hearty dose of screwball fun.
