Summary

Facing a marriage deadline, Lady Jocelyn Kendal impulsively weds Major David Lancaster, a penniless officer dying of wounds received at Waterloo. In return, his younger sister will receive a generous income -- and David will have the enchanting Jocelyn as a wife, if only for a few days. Then fate takes a hand, and Jocelyn suddenly finds herself with a healthy, vibrant husband -- a seasoned campaigner who wants to renegotiate the terms of their bargain, and will use every bit of charm and passion he possesses to win the heart of his bewildered bride.
