Really good read,
This review is from: Gallant Waif (Mills & Boon Historical) (Paperback)
This is on my keeper shelf. It is a lovely story with 2 believable leads. Jack is injured and hiding away in the country, his grandmother manipulates her ward into staying with him as his housekeeper. He is grumpy, chivalrous, rude, loving, kind and arrogant and I adore him! Kate is kind and loving. She was tricked into believing she had married a French officer in the war and is filled full of shame for sleeping with him. She has been ostracised from society. Whilst she is a kind hearted young lady she is no push over and riles our hero out of his stupor. It really is a story of true love and I have read it many times. The misunderstandings between the characters together with their motivation is believable and the ending where Jack rescues her from a horrible social situation is really moving. Highly recommended.
