The young and beautiful widow, Lady Alexandra Chase, thought she had all the time in the world to marry her love, the dashing, lusty Scotsman, Major Pendleton. But how was she to know that Napoleon would strike again, thrusting Pendleton into a deadly undercover mission for Wellington and the British Army?
Months later no one knows his whereabouts or whether he's even alive. Grief and despair threaten to destroy the young widow -- except for her belief that he's still alive.
Some say that love conquers all -- but can their love conquer betrayal and a vicious traitor on the hunt for Pendleton?
