I fell in love will Paul and Hetty. Hetty is so brave it just makes me what to hug her. Paul is damaged from the war and then comes back to a world changed. I don't want to give away anything but if you love historical romance then Lynne Connolly should be on your auto buy list already.
I didn't see any of the formatting errors spoken about by a previous reviewer so either they were mistaken or Ms Connolly has corrected the problem.
"Lewis" in a later chapter. Hetty was shocked to hear about Lewis being in deep debt, and appeared just as shocked a chapter later when she was again told of Lewis being in debt. *sigh* I'm sad to say that there are more examples. The "villain" was telegraphed right from the beginning, so no mysteries here. He spreads a very lame rumor that Paul is "mad" and violent, and of course everyone believes that the big, strong, charismatic war hero who is idolized by all, is suddenly "mad", no proof required. I actually rolled my eyes at the ending, when the villain, along with some burly goons, force their way into the house. The villain then crashes into Paul and Hettie's bedroom, "commitment" papers clutched in his hot little hands, ready to take Paul off to the asylum ~ because anyone can totally get papers to commit an Earl without so much as a Doctor's examination. The villain is conveniently killed when his gun misfires, leading to our HEA. One last nit-pick ~ Every. Single. Time. a word was italicized (and there were many), there was no space between it and the adjacent word, making weird half italicized- half regular mash-ups ~ a very odd formatting issue. Could have been a terrific little story, in the right hands.
Paul, nicknamed Lucky for his way to stay unwounded on the battle fields, comes back from the Napoleonic wars physically unscarred, but deeply wounded in his mind. Like many soldiers he relives his battles at night, and he fears to hurt someone in the process.
Hetty, his estranged wife does not know what to expect from this husband who left few days after their wedding and nearly never came back. She does not know him anymore, dead is the young man who ravished her heart and left her without any explanation to fend for herself and manage his estate.
Who is this cold and suspicious man she called once her husband?
Can she open again her heart and not get hurt one more time?
It is their second chance in love, but will they be able to overcome and trust the other when they have changed and are no more the one they were years before.
The author created a bunch of nice and less nice characters, each one with a past and a purpose or hope.

Lord Paul Sherstone returns from the war 5 years after marrying his bride Hetty. A lot can happen in 5 years. Hetty is a different woman than the girl he left behind. She's learned to take care of herself and the estate Paul left behind. Paul has changed as well. He's not the man he was. Tormented by headaches and nightmares of battle, can he be the man he wants to be? The husband he wants to be? At first, Paul and Hetty feel like strangers but when unexpected events threaten their happiness, they must turn to each other to save their future. I absolutely loved this story and the two main characters. Paul was fierce on the outside but a tender man on the inside. Hetty was a strong and capable woman. I loved watching them rekindle their feelings for one another and explore a deeper bond than they had shared before. Ms. Connolly has me hooked. Her writing pulled me in with this emotionally stirring story. I can't wait to read more!
