When Lord Maitland first sees Virginia during the Peninsular campaign, he is smitten by the beauty and bravery of the young woman who dared follow her soldier husband to war. He cannot forget her, and when he learns after the war that her husband is dead, he vows to find her. To survive alone, however, Virginia has had to drop out of sight. She now works for a successful catering business, and her position in society is ruined by her contact with trade. Maitland must not only find Virginia and win her over but find a way to repair her damaged reputation. Reeves's second novel is a well-written and classically styled Regency, as was her first, Georgina's Campaign ( LJ 12/91). Recommended for readers of this genre.
