Once a Soldier by Mary Jo Putney


I love the name "Rogues Redeemed" for the series. I could not put the book down once I got into the story. Some of the unique aspects of this story were that they did not take place in England. The story was set in a fictional kingdom between Spain and Portugal. It was also unique in that the main female character was the illegitimate child of a duke. She made her home outside of England, although she did miss her home. She is smart, successful and enjoying her freedom. The developing romance was believable. Will did not give up in his pursuit of Athena, which made the story really good. I also like that he worked on becoming friends with her. The author was able to weave a fun love story into some of the secondary characters, especially Justin and the Princess. This is definitely a well written, fun HEA with a unique twist. Very enjoyable!
