The St. Bride men are famous for not wandering far from home, but Simon proves there is an exception to every rule. In 1812, he leaves his family's English estate for Canada, to fight the Americans and corruption in the Canadian government. Simon is finally prepared to heed his family's ceaseless nagging to return home when he becomes involved in a duel to defend the honor of Jane Otterburn. Simon is ultimately forced to marry Jane, and worries that she will find it difficult to fit in with the St. Brides. Just as Simon finds himself falling in love with his capable, competent new wife, both a secret from Jane's past and a dangerous new enemy threaten to destroy their fragile new marriage. In the latest installment in her Company of Rogues series, Beverly beautifully blends complex characters, an exquisitely sensual love story, and a refreshingly different Regency setting into one sublime romance.
