Why do you need to read this book?
I think that Lorraine Heath has managed to create two equally outstanding characters in this book. Stephen Lynons has been damaged in the war. He used to be quite the rake, but now he is significantly damaged and trying to recover. Mercy is a woman who tries to do the honorable thing – bringing a baby back to it’s family, and ends up doing another honorable thing – healing Stephen. I loved this book!
