A Rose for Major Flint

Harlequin Historical. (Brides of Waterloo, Bk. 3). Jun. 2015. 288p. ISBN 9780373298419. pap. $6.50; ebk. ISBN 9781460384619. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Maj. Adam Flint has no idea of the identity of the lovely, silent woman he rescued from a band of deserters in Waterloo's aftermath—a woman he's decided to call Rose—and neither does she. Shock has robbed her of both memory and speech, and her total trust in Adam makes her his responsibility until she recovers. Slowly, the pieces begin to fall into place, but by the time they do, Rose and Adam's relationship has become serious, making the revelation that Rose is a viscount's daughter problematic to say the least.
VERDICT Social expectations collide with wartime reality in a tender, well-written story that brings a loyal, baseborn officer and a gently bred heroine together in a satisfying romance that nicely ties up the series. Allen (Compromised Lady) divides her time between a village in Bedfordshire and a cottage on the Norfolk coast of England.
