Allan and his captain, Gabriel Deane, hid in the shadows as the mob moved past, intent, no doubt, on more plundering, more rape, more slaying of innocent civilians. Was there anything more loathsome. than men gone amok, egging each other on to more violence and destruction? Fire ravaged a tall stone building and illuminated the rabble from behind. Brandishing clubs and bayonets, they rumbled past Allan, whose muscles were taut with outrage. These were not the enemy, but Allan’s own countrymen, British soldiers, lost to all decency, all morality, in the throes of madness.

  • Gardall
Captain Allan Landon, the hero, is my favorite kind of hero (romantic or otherwise): brave, true, faithful, strong, protective, appreciative, considerate, kind, a great lover -- definitely chivalrous! -- in a word, delicious. The heroine, Marian Pallant, has reasons for her rebelliousness and for her mistrust of men, but I loved the story, and can't wait for the next book in this series (based on three friends who all fought in the British Army in the Napoleonic Wars). Gaston's detail about the historical events surrounding the (mis-)treatment of returning/wounded soldiers during that time mirrors some of the less-than-stellar medical treatment (including that for PTSD)which is happening in the US in 2010. Marian feels connected to the wounded soldiers, having helped to treat (as best she could) some of them in Belgium before and after Waterloo -- she even helped move (drag -- it was realistic!) some seriously wounded soldiers from a burning outpost, saving their lives. Allan wants to help her, of course, as he's been a career soldier and has been wounded as well, but he doesn't think demonstrations (Marian's idea) are the best way. Demonstrations lead to riots: a riot got his own father killed.

Gaston weaves the story of the growing love between the two main characters skillfully, with her characteristic beautiful prose and imagery, and with her historically faithful idioms of speech, which transport me to that time period. Her attention to detail is one of the main reasons I love her books, and I always wonder how she is going to get the two lovers together in the end-- she does it, and it's so satisfying.

Brava!

This story, part one of a trilogy, is well structured and non-stop. Set in the Regency era it begins with action in Spain, on to Waterloo, to Brussels, Belgium and then to London. It's always satisfying to read about the exploits of a brave and intelligent woman and this story privides it, in spades. Miss Marian Pallant is a little firecracker. The Hero, Allan Landon is a real sweetheart, with the patience of Job, he is true to Marian to the last page and she finally realises it, but neither of then actually spoke the word 'love', I kept waiting for it!
I read these books in the wrong order and now I have to go back and read the other 2, to fill in the gaps. So read this before you read the next 2, all good stories and so satisfying after all the trouble the 3 soldiers have to endure at the start.
This story does justice to Georgette Heyer's "An Infamous Army", so if you love G.H. you'll love Diane Gaston's stories.
Though Marian is only 20 she is a very modern woman, and Allan is a very modern character. Marian's cousin is an absolute creep, and Marian's friend Domina is so silly I wished I could be there to give her a 'good slap'.
Miss Gaston creates well rounded characters and situations and the reader will feel like they are right there with the characters living the experience. The scenes of Waterloo are horrific and this reader was relieved to escape that carnage, in fact with the back drop of actual events this story is totally believable and the reader will get completely immersed in it.

This book was very well detailed throughout the beginning. Their romance at first reminded me of the movie 'An Affair to Remember". They are apart and then come together under different circumstances a length of time later. I did not like the last time they came together. It is 2 years later and the heroine is planning something that is stupid IMO. I mean all that work and build up for a 2 minute cheer to get noticed and possible get killed? The government covered it up anyways so what was the point. Did it do any good in the end? Nope!!! After a while, this book started to feel like a history lesson and less like a romance to me. I do like that the hero was always faithful to her even though he thought he lost her. I did not like that no one ever outed her cousin for his actions in the beginning or that the heroine ALWAYS believed the cousin over the man she was supposed to have been so in love with. What was the point of the prologue in THIS story (I know it sets up Gabriel's book)if they were never going to use the information against Edwin? He was not even a villain but a misguided, idiotic fool who cannot remember anything when he gets drunk! The villain in this story was the government system!

Love Diane Gaston's books and this does not disappoint. I love a man in a uniform, especially the red coats! The hero is intelligent, caring and the heroine adds the balance to his character and story line that keeps it moving at such a steady pace you do not want to put it down. The story line set in the war with Napoleon is one of my favorite periods. The story line is unique and well developed.

Waste of time, too. Silly, dull, and I couldn't finish it. You could not pay me to read it through.
