Abused by her late father, Mercy Baggington does not believe she will ever be free of the horrors of her past.
She had no desire to meet new people, and she certainly wasn’t planning to go along with her brother’s matchmaking plans.
But when she is introduced to General Edmund Bradley, a veteran injured in the Napoleonic War, Mercy is struck with compassion. General Bradley’s scars are visible; hers are not.
Can love heal two wounded hearts? Will General Bradley accept her once he learns the truth?
Or will Mercy be forced to marry the horrid Lord Vardemere, a man even more terrible than her own father?
