To secure her future, Miss Sarah Fairfax, is marrying her former intended's best friend. What else can she do after finding herself pregnant and her fiancee killed during the war. No one is more surprised than Sarah, when her former intended shows up at her wedding determined to get her back.
Brigadier Edmund Blackpool was left for dead on the battlefield. Fighting to get his way back home, the image of Sarah is the only thing that got him through. He can't believe that she is marrying his best friend and is about to have a baby. But he won't give up without a fight and quickly marries Sarah.
But a lot has changed in 9 months. They are about to have a baby. Can these two lovers find their way back to each other?
This is definitely different than the other books in the Duke of War series or other historical romances for that matter. Sarah and Edmund quickly find themselves parents and a lot of the story revolves around them adjusting to being parents and finding that spark again.
While I did enjoy the story, it definitely isn't my favorite of the series. Captain Blackheart's story is up next. I can't wait to read it. He has intrigued me since we first met him in The Earl's Defiant Wallflower.
