A touching romance,

This review is from: One Good Turn: Signet Regency Romance (InterMix) (Kindle Edition)
This book has loose similarities to Georgette Heyer's The Spanish Bride - which, since that was a true story, is perfectly acceptable. Nez is a veteran of the Peninsula wars and also Waterloo and is suffering what we'd now call post-war stress. He's stopped drinking but is still trying to pull his life together. Liria was raped at Badajoz and had a child a result. Inevitably, the relationship between these two is painful and develops slowly. Parts of their story is a real tear-jerker - and the whole thing is very well-written.
