This is the second book in the Chadcombe Marriages series but one can follow along without reading the first book.
Honestly, I enjoyed this book more then I did Waltzing with the Earl(her debut book).
Miss Juliana Milford and her mother have just arrived to England. She encounters Captain Harry Fanton while breaking their journey in an inn. When rumors begin to surface in London, Juliana begins to depend on Harry.
Its a well paced historical book with witty diagloue, some twists and an enjoyable cast. Great depth to the characters and I loved how the author included the grim battle scenes. Clean romance.
I enjoyed reading this book. The language was descriptive and the author's writing is just lovely. I look forward to reading more from Catherine Tinley.
As fate would have it, Captain Harry Fanton is the brother-in-law of Julianna's friend, Charlotte, and they meet again. Initially Juliana holds on to her anger, but she slowly comes to see that Harry is really charming and good company. As for Harry, rather than being put off by Juliana's feisty behavior, he is drawn to her. In fact, he's so attracted to her, that he would pursue courting her if he weren't determined never to marry. There is an incident in Harry's past, which has left him feeling that he's a coward and flawed and unworthy to ever take a bride.
Juliana's mother has always been evasive about her husband, Juliana's father. Other than saying he died as a soldier, she becomes agitated and distraught when questioned further. Soon, rumors begin to circulate that Juliana is illegitimate. Mrs. Milford insists on returning to Brussels, and shortly thereafter, the historic battle of Waterloo takes place, a mere nine miles away. Harry was also ordered back to active duty, and took part in the famous and bloody fight.
I admit to not liking Juliana at all in the beginning. Rather than strong, I simply found her rude and overbearing. Then I began to see how she really had to take charge of things, due to her mother's inability to do so. Her growth over the course of the book caused me to change my opinion, and her heroic actions while dealing with the wounded after the battle led me to admire and like her.
Harry is the type of hero you can't help but like. Still, beneath the face he presented to the world, he was truly tortured by his past. Author Catherine Tinley found a unique way for him to finally come to terms with the incident that kept him from moving on with his life and grabbing his own happiness. He also showed the measure of his character by not caring if Juliana was illegitimate.
THE CAPTAIN'S DISGRACED LADY had another twist at the end, one that I enjoyed immensely! A sweet and warm romance with a well deserved happy ever after made for a most satisfying read.
Heat level - kisses only. As reviewed at rosesareblue dot net. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
On there way there they encounter Captain Harry. At first, I wasn't fond of Juliana. She was over the top domineering when it came to her mother and she wasn't very understanding
When she arrives at her friend's home, she learns that Harry is none other than Charlotte's brother in law
There's an instant attraction between the two, though Juliana doesn't realize what she's feeling. Harry is a bit of a flirt, which doesn't make things easier between the two.
Catherine writes Regency the way I like them, clean. This story wouldn't have felt right if there were a lot of passionate love scenes. So yay for not having gratuitous sex scenes where they weren't needed.
I enjoyed how Juliana and Harry came together, though their mutual desire to care for her mother. When rumor's start to swirl about Juliana's parentage, Harry really steps up.
The conflict in the novel revolves around Juliana's mom and then Harry's feelings of inadequacy that seem to stem from PTSD.
The resolution of both these conflicts are a little unsatisfying, as it was fairly easy to deduce who the General was. I wanted to shake Juliana and her mother a few times for the secret keeping and in Juliana's case her inability to ask the obvious.
With Harry it wasn't so simple. His feelings of unworthiness certainly weren't merited, especially as his past is revealed.
These two certainly loved each other. It takes war to finally bring them together and Waterloo to make everything work out for everyone.
I really loved the twist at the end that involves the odious two Wakleys.
I can't wait to read more by Catherine Tinley.
