Publisher's Summary

Captain Worthington is injured in the battle of Trafalgar. Blinded by shrapnel, his life goes from being at the forefront of society to being almost cast off. He finds himself sitting with the wallflowers at a ball - something he doesn't take too kindly to.
Miss Amelia Basingstoke has no dowry and enough dreadful relations to ensure that even on her third season, she is unmarried and a confirmed wallflower. Her only friend is a large boisterous dog of dubious character who considers himself too good to chase dead birds.
A chance meeting between the pair frees the captain in ways that he had never thought possible since his injury.
A stubborn captain, an opinionated young woman, an unruly dog, and Christmas is approaching - what could possibly go wrong?

A very pleasant read

In a very class-conscious society, a girl with a family who must be employed, no dowry, and some VERY obnoxious relatives would not expect to meet with an earl's brother/naval hero in the ballrooms of the ton. But the hero is blinded at Trafalgar, becomes embittered and alone but for one friend. They happen to meet in the wallflowers corner, and what she says to him makes him start on a course of self-evaluation. Then, they meet inadvertently in the park as she is escaping the relatives/exercising her uncle's disappointing large hound. It is a romance, a veteran's tale, a tribute to friendship, and a testimony to therapy dogs. All in all, a much better tale than the ordinary efforts. I found it well worth the read!
Pippa Rathborne gave an excellent performance without artifice.

Perfect

From the moment the story started I fell in love with Amelia. I enjoyed her quick wit and easy banter with Captain Worthington. I love these kinds of stories so much. I enjoyed every minute. Perfect beach read, even though I wasn't actually at the beach while reading it!
The narrator was flawless.
