Summary
Devastated by the treachery of the woman he loves, the Marquis of Kenworth leaves London and the Prince Regent's intimate circle of pleasure loving friends, to join the Duke of Wellington's army as plain Captain Ivan Worth. Facing hardship and the grim reality of battle he is convinced that no woman can ever be trusted to love him for himself, rather than his title, and turns his back on romance forever. Now, wounded by a shell from a French gun, he is in Paris, an invalid guest of his close friend the Duke, waiting for his wound to heal and nursing his broken heart. Into this house of despair comes Shenda, the beautiful daughter of Lord Linbury, who is orphaned after the death of her esteemed, but poverty stricken father. Alone in the world, she has travelled to Paris to fulfill her father's last wish that she seek the protection of his old friend, the Duke of Wellington. Still celebrating his victory at the Battle of Waterloo, the Duke quickly realises that his new ward is young and innocent, as well as beautiful. Knowing that his reputation with women precludes Shenda from staying in his own house, he sets her the task of nursing Captain Worth. Despite her patient's rages and his obvious disgust for women, Shenda enthusiastically sets to work, using her mother's traditional herbal remedies in place of the synthetic medicines prescribed by the French doctors. But are Shenda's powers of healing enough to make the cantankerous Captain change his mind and allow her to stay? Or will he cast her out onto the dirty, rough streets of Paris? As she plays her music for him, putting her heart and soul into every piece, can she soothe his troubled mind as well as heal the bullet hole in his shoulder? Or will she be cast out onto the dirty streets of Paris to fend for herself?
