On the road with Wellingtons army, they meet an unexpected ally in the enigmatic Major Stewart Fitzgerald.Side by side they fight with their new-found comrades in some of the most bitter battles of the Napoleonic Wars.Even when her fortunes seem to be improving, a series of seemingly random suspicious events begins to look like a pattern to Vevina. Soon she uncovers a plot so momentous, that all she loves is put in jeopardy, engineered by the person responsible for her familys disgrace.Vevina is forced to question the very foundation on which her new life has been built. Is Stewart really all that he seems? Appearances can be deceptive…Stewart was in love once before back home in Ireland, but the bitter sting of betrayal is more than he can bear. To love is to risk everything, and he cant be sure Vevina is worth the gamble. For despite her seeming patriotism, she has been labeled a traitor. Does he dare risk everything for love?Vevina must clear her name, protect those she loves, and stop the Grand Army from taking over the whole of Europe. She is willing to risk everything she holds most dear to stem the tide of Napoleons quest for power, and win the love of the man who has come to mean more to her than life itself.Once inside, Vevina removed her blouse with her back to Stewart, while he brought the bowl of arnica.The warm fingers applied the soothing cream gently, and Vevina let out a sigh of relief and contentment.“Im sorry I hit you during the fighting practice. How is you nose now?” she asked softly.Without thinking, she turned to face him.The sight of her magnificent breasts was almost more than Stewart could stand.Stewart managed to stammer, “Fine,” before he insisted daringly, “You lost. I won the bet, and I’ll take that kiss now.”Vevina’s eyes locked with his, and for an agonizing moment Stewart thought she was about to walk away. Her eyes flicked over his face and she understood the raw desire in his eyes. Though she blushed, she stretched up to reach his mouth.Go slowly, his mind told him, but his hands came up to cup her feminine fullness, and she gasped.Stewart took advantage of her opened mouth to plunder the honey-soft cavern with his tongue.Vevina found herself clinging to him with an abandon she had never thought possible in herself.“Vevina, youre so lovely,” he breathed, as he moved down her neck to her right shoulder, and then to the delicate pink tip of her breast.Sensation flooded through Vevina, and she held his head to her while he teased the silky crest.Her legs began to shake, and Stewart knelt down, bringing her onto the floor with him, while he moved to taste her other breast.Her hands caressed his shoulders and chest longingly, bringing him closer to her….Stewart murmured into her skin, “You are so beautiful, beyond anything Ive ever dreamt of,” as he turned his sensual attentions to her other breast.Vevina’s body felt on fire, and she writhed under him in a tormented ecstasy of undefinable sensations. So this was what it was like to be made love to by a man, she thought in amazement.But she also knew it was more than mere physical desire. Her whole universe was becoming centred around Stewart, and it was at once both completely fulfilling and dangerous.“Stewart, I think we have to stop,” she whispered against his ear.Stewart raised his head to look straight into her eyes. “Do you really want to, Vevina? Tell me….”4.5 out of 5 starsRecommended for historical romance loversBy C.
