Lady Isabella Winton waited four years to marry her fiancé, but each year Lord Alexander Fitzroy, Earl of Standford, a serving officer, and a reformed rake, finds an excuse to delay the nuptials. This time, with the marriage set for the next month, he tells her he received an urgent message from his Colonel. He is needed in Belgium almost immediately. He warns her it may be dangerous for her to accompany him.
Isabella realizes he is bluffing, things would not change so suddenly. Despite Napoleon’s escape from Elba, Brussels is the center of a social whirl. She looked forward to riding in the famous park off the Rue Royale; elaborate dinners and extravagant balls; so different from the quiet life in rural Sussex. Fearing Alex may have returned to his rakish ways and already installed a mistress, she insists on traveling with him.
