He is enchanted with a chestnut haired beauty at his family's New Year's masquerade ball. He longs to be alone with her and touch her glossy cu...more
really good. loved the details about the battle.
I really liked this book.
I never read a book about the Battle of Waterloo, so it was something new and interesting.
At first, when reading the book, I thought to myself that this was going to be the type where the couple was would just create their barriers. However, when Napoleon comes back to France and Major Lord David goes back off to battle to help, it took a new turn that kept my interest.
I think if you like the Jane Austin (characters' own stubbornness that either makes or breaks them) o...more
I enjoyed this one, it was a nice sequel to Quiet Meg, continuing with the characters. I always enjoy when secondary characters in one book get to be the primary characters in their own story. The details of the military battle were fascinating. Warfare truly came down to whether or not you could protect a particular area of land, even just a garden space. It had a sweet and appropriate ending but as always when I like characters I want to read more about what happens to them later. Looking forw...more
Maybe 3.5 stars...still a fun read and should be read after "Quiet Meg" there are characters introduced there that lead into this book. It started off really fun and then fell off a little bit for me towards the end. Very cute, though. This author is such a fun find!
Not my favorite Sherry Ferguson book. I've read most of her Avalon regency ones now. I am not a huge history fan, and there was a lot of pages of Bonaparte & the war in it. Overall, not one that I would read again.

A magnificent historical novel- one of many written by a talented writer- top tier prose and characterizations by a must read writer
Loved this book so much, I read it twice! I enjoy the characters and their personalities, and the world Ms. Ferguson has created. The books are loosely related as some of her characters are from the same family, though as stories they stand alone. Major Lord David is my favorite, but her other books follow close behind. These are regency romance/dilemma books, in which the constraints of society create unending complications, and misunderstandings between would-be couples result from many things...more

A sweet, clean, fast Regency romance.

Thank you, Firstreads, and Sherry Lynn Ferguson, for this book. :)
Smartly written regency romance. Reminds me of Georgette Heyer!
Another well written Regency by Sherry Lynn Ferguson.
A quick regency read.
This surprised me because it didn't develop the way that I thought it would when it started out. The hero was a lot warmer and the heroine was a lot stronger. I didn't think the hero would actually go into battle, but that was wonderful and as good as any historical battle scenes I've read. You do have the feeling the heroine deserves to get away from her awful family, so it's a very satisfying end.
Maybe a little tame to start, but this builds to a great battling shoot out at Waterloo. A clean romance with a pleasant feel to it.
To long to much war to boring
Second of the series that begins with Quiet Meg. Major of the title moves through a warm-to-warmer attraction to a neighbor and toward threat of Waterloo. The romance is more like a family matter than in Quiet Meg but it seems right for the characters.

Not my favorite of hers compared to Quiet Meg, The Honorable Marksley, and Only a Mister, but still a very enjoyable read.
