Sarah Fairfax had joined the man she loved in Bruges during a short leave before he went to battle. Sarah ended up pregnant and Edmund died during the battle. She is almost nine months pregnant and marrying the Duke of Ravenwood when Edmund crashes the wedding. Edmund Blackpool was left for dead on the battlefield. He only survived by thinking of Sarah. Now, he has returned to England and finds his fiancee pregnant and marrying one of his best friends. After Sarah disappears, can he find her and salvage their relationship? Can Sarah get past her deepest fears to build a live with Edmund?
When I got this ARC, I "put down" the novel I was reading and immediately started reading "The Brigadier's Runaway Bride." I was thrilled to get the ARC because I have anxiously been waiting for it. I even have it on pre-order.
I have loved this series since the beginning and have been waiting for Sarah to get her own HEA. Her anguish at loosing her fiancee and ending up pregnant has been felt throughout the previous novels. Finally, sweet Sarah gets her man! The characters are well drawn and very likeable. Even though Edmund has been through battle and carries both the physical and emotional scars, he comforts Sarah through her anxiety about their finances.
Again, this was another wonderful novel by Erica Ridley.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
