Lady Emeline Gordon, a widow with a child is very much a prim and proper lady. She's also promised to Viscount Vale, who although she doesn't love, believes the marriage will suffice. One day, an American man called Samuel Hartley turns up in London wearing 'unusual' clothes. Emeline reveals her disgust, since he doesn't appear a gentleman, unlike the other fashionably dressed men in town. Hartley claims he's seeking out her services to train his younger sister, Rebecca, to be a proper young lady, so she can be accepted into society. But Hartley isn't telling his sister nor Emeline the complete truth. He's back to learn the truth from his former comrades in the war he fought, believing they were betrayed. But by whom? Was it one of his so-called friends? Emeline's fiancé?

Hartley is clearly affected by his traumatic past, and eventually lets Emeline into his heart, who despite her initial frostiness, begins to soften towards this man. He is a very good runner, and often goes on runs, just to get away from things, even in his poorly made moccasins, which results in his feet being torn to shreds. I enjoyed the moments where Emeline tends to his wounds and you think they might finally get together publically, but Hartley believes she is 'above' him in terms of station, and it wouldn't work. But when the past catches up and puts his sister and Emeline in danger, he vows to return them safely, even if it means forming some sort of alliance with Viscount Vale.

Overall, the book was good, but it wasn't a favourite. Later on, the author tries to show reasons for Emeline's coldness, but it dragged on too long in my opinion. Hartley doesn't seem to care that she's betrothed to his former comrade, and persues her, alongside his attempts to find out the truth.

I am a johnny-come-lately to The Legend of the Four Soldiers series. I really enjoyed The Maiden Lane series and then I decided to read To Desire A Devil which was the last book in the Soldier series. A word of advice, if you are going to read the Soldier series, I would recommend reading them in order because the stories do build upon one another.

SPOILER ALERT: I am somewhat surprised by so many negative comments about this book. Regarding the comments about Emeline - sure she was a strong outspoken woman and once in awhile came across somewhat harsh. Okay, perhaps she wasn't my favorite heroine of all time but she was a nice caring lady who had been dealt some rather serious blows in life because all the men she loved died including her first husband, her father and her brother. Understandably, she didn't want to love and be hurt again so she thought to marry her long time friend, Jasper Renshaw (his story is told in To Seduce a Sinner - Book #2 in this series). Although she had developed strong feelings for Samuel, she simply was afraid that if she married him and anything happened to him, she would be hurt again.

I loved Samuel Hartley. I loved that he was a confident man who, although he was a nobody colonial still managed to hold his own among the haute ton all the while continuing to wear his fancy mocassins. I loved his running through London. I loved his shrewd business skills. I loved that he knew he wanted Emeline and went after her even going to her ball uninvited and brawling with Jasper when he realized he was going to announce his engagement to Emeline. I loved that he still went to Emeline, all beat up from his fight with Jasper even when he thought there was no hope that she would ever change her mind and marry him instead of Jasper.

What a great storyline, full of action, excitement and passion. Unique idea for a romantic book, but it really works.

Wonderfully written characters, so charismatic and engaging. Loved Em, she's no simpering female, but a woman who knows what life is about, therefore she manages it, despite being a woman, constrained by the times she lives in.
Sam, the hero, is a typical alpha male, protective, loyal, but damaged from the past. Our heroine helps him and in doing so finds happiness despite fighting her feelings for him.

Can't wait to read the next book in the series!

I know I gave this book a 4* should be 3* instead mainly because EH is a good writer. And this book is well written I like how she descriped the horror of the war in America between the native American and British soldiers and I enjoyed the fairy tale running through out the book,which is one of Ms Hoyt signature.The interaction between Emeling and Samuel is realistic enough just that it didn't sizzle, It was more of a fizz than a bang.

I am a great fan of Elizabeth Hoyt as she has a wonderful way of putting in a really good story. I started off with book 4 by chance of The Legend of the Four Soldiers, and was so intrigued by it that I bought the other three and have been very pleased with the resulting stories. I loved the Fairy Tale start to each episode and they fitted well together as the stories unfolded.
I have read all her other books and look forward to her next one March 2013 with bated breath.
I like that I can pre-order any book from Amazon and they will deliver promptly,even before their stated delivery date very often.
