A deftly handled heart-wrenching lgbt Regency romance.

What a wonderfully handled historical romance featuring a trans woman ladies’ companion and a disabled duke—both veterans of the Napoleonic wars. Viola Carroll and the Duke of Gracewood were the closest of friends until the war ripped them apart. When left injured on the battlefield Viola chose to let her previous life go and begin to live as she was always meant to—but at the cost of the most important person in her life. Gracewood is shattered by injury, war, guilt, and loss. When news of his illness reaches Viola, she’s encouraged by her meddling family to try and help him find his footing again—but at what cost to them both? It’s a sweet and moving tale told with wit and heart. Fans of Bridgeton and Cat Sebastian take note.
