On the eve of battle, passions are running high...

A brilliant achievement...vivid, accurate, dramatic...the description of Waterloo is magnificent.-DAILY MAIL

My favorite historical novelist.-MARGARET DRABBLE

IN THE SUMMER OF 1815, with Napolean Bonaparte marching down from the north, Brussels is a whirlwind of parties, balls and soirees. In the swirling social scene surrounding the Duke of Wellington and his noble aides de camp, no one attracts more attention than the beautiful, outrageous young widow Lady Barbara Childe. On their first meeting, dashing Colonel Charles Audley proposes to her, but even their betrothal doesn't calm her wild behavior. Finally, with the Battle of Waterloo raging just miles away, civilians fleeing and the wounded pouring back into the town, Lady Barbara discovers where her heart really lies, and like a true noblewoman, she rises to the occasion, and to the demands of love, life and war...

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect
period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer
achieves what the rest of us only aspire to.
