Weakness and courage are found in the same broken form if one can but see.

Major Phineas Allan Storme is struggling with his new life. After being paralyzed from injuries received during Waterloo, he’s confined to a Bath chair. Depression bedevils him, making him feel useless and helpless. With his older brother sulking in the country and his younger brother no doubt causing scandal elsewhere, he’s keeping his mother company. What the bloody hell else can he do but be a companion?

Lady Jane Marsden—daughter of the Earl of Worchester—is popular within the ton. Though she enjoys society life immensely, it doesn’t fill the emptiness in her soul. After having her heart broken twice over, she never lets males close, but when she meets a dark-haired man at a late summer rout, her thinking changes. The need and longing in his eyes draws her interest, but his personality captivates her mind. What could it hurt to introduce herself?

As Finn and Jane strike up a friendship that blooms into something more, responsibility and duty constantly intrude, but each is determined to conquer the obstacles set before them. When an emotional misunderstanding threatens their romance, his depression convinces him he’s a millstone about the necks of those he cares for, and he’s determined to remove himself from life.

It’ll take a harrowing night of heart-wrenching emotions for him and Jane to discover if love is worth risking everything to keep.


Major Phineas Storme is struggling to come to terms with his life.  He is confined to a bath chair due to injuries from the war.  Depression is a terrible demon to face. 
Lady Jane Marsden has faced many losses in her life,  but still manages to keep a sunny disposition. Her work with her brother at his clinic is to lift moral. Her parents have their idea of the future she needs,  but she disagrees. 
This is a very emotional, historical romance with exceptional characters.  Our heroine will not be deterred from what she wants.  Our hero battles a vicious demon with help from a stubborn woman and an affectionate cat. 
I loved it. 


Sandra Sookoo is a bestselling author who firmly believes every person deserves acceptance and a happy ending. Most days you can find her creating scandal and mischief in the Regency-era, serendipity and happenstance in Victorian America or snarky humor in the contemporary world. Reading romance is a lot like eating fine chocolates—you can’t just have one. Good thing books don’t have calories!
When she’s not wearing out computer keyboards, Sandra spends time with her real life Prince Charming in central Indiana where she’s been known to goof off and make moments count because the key to life is laughter. A Disney fan since the age of ten, when her soul gets bogged down and her imagination flags, a trip to Walt Disney World is in order. Nothing fuels her dreams more than the land of eternal happy endings, hope and love stories.
