By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
Mills & Boon bring out a series of regency romance compilations, each book consisting of two novels, at regular intervals: this double volume is number four in the "Regency High Society Affairs" series they brought out in March 2009.

It contains "Lord Calthorpe's Promise (Mills & Boon Historical)" by Sylvia Andrew, and "The Society Catch (Mills & Boon Historical)" by Louise Allen, both of which have also been published individually.

Both stories in this book start at a ball, and both are about women who eventually fall for handsome war veterans after explosively difficult courtships.

"Lord Calthorpe's Promise" begins at a very famous historical event: The Duchess of Richmond's ball in Brussels on the eve of Waterloo. The eponymous hero is one of a number of officers on the Duke of Wellington's staff who are ordered to attend the ball in full dress uniform to reassure civilians that Napoleon is no threat to Brussels. Shortly after, as two comrades ride off together to take Wellington's orders to various units, Lieutenant Tom Payne asked Major (Lord) Adam Calthorpe to look after his sister if anything happens to him.

Hmm. Making a request like that in a Regency romance is an even more certain guarantee of getting shot than beaming down in a red shirt during an episode of "Star Trek." Even if the back of the book didn't give it away, it won't come as much surprise to any reader when something unfortunate does happen to Lieutenant Payne during the battle of Waterloo.

Which leaves Adam Calthorpe with a promise to fulful, looking after Tom's sister, Katherine Payne.
