With her family's fortune in ruins, Harriet Handley has given up her aspirations of becoming an author. All effort must go to helping her pretty sister Sophie marry well. But when Sophie's wealthy beau returns from the war, he is no longer a wild, lighthearted youth. And while Sophie is dismayed by the transformation, Harriet finds this thoughtful, war-weary man utterly intriguing....Waterloo left Captain John Brookes scarred in body and mind, and Sophie's lukewarm reception only adds to his pain. In contrast, Harriet's compassion and gentle faith bring solace as they collaborate on his memoirs. Perhaps joyful new memories can be made-if the wrong sister turns out to be the right wife.
The Soldier's Homecoming Ensign James Rowland was fortunate to return from Waterloo unscathed-at least in body. But guilt from that terrible battle has left him almost mute and crushed in spirit. Only in the company of sweet, compassionate Lucy Williams, a volunteer at the Veterans' Group in Bath, does he begin to feel happiness is within reach. Penniless governesses can't afford dreams of romance. Lucy Williams is resigned to lifelong spinsterhood-until James enters her life. His mother opposes the match. Lucy herself is sure the chasm between their ranks is too wide. But now that she has helped heal James, he intends to overcome every obstacle between them...and emerge victorious in the battle for her love.

Sophie Handley is a charming flirt-just like the fiancée who jilted Lieutenant Charles Cantrill after he was wounded at Waterloo. Yet her assistance in helping veterans is proving invaluable. And when she offers to feign a courtship to appease his family, he finds their arrangement curiously appealing....Sophie has been groomed from birth for a life of easy comfort. Then financial ruin obliges her to reevaluate all her plans and dreams. Helping veterans and their wives helps her see what's truly important-and gives her the chance to enjoy the lieutenant's very appealing company. Somehow Sophie must help his embittered heart to see she's found her permanent place-by his side, and in his arms.
