Spring 1813

The exotic splendors of India are legendary, and the colorful sights of her new home in Calcutta immediately captivate eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Poulter. Whereas many of her fellow British expatriates despise the culture they see as barbaric, Helen sees excitement in the unusual locale. It is in this vibrant, bustling city that she finds a kindred soul in Captain Michael Rhodes, an Englishman whose lifelong love of India runs deep. Their friendship quickly grows, yet despite their undeniable connection, she could never think of Captain Rhodes as more than a dear friend.

Her love, in truth, has been captured by dashing British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. This handsome soldier represents the embodiment of all she's dreamed of in a husband. Preoccupied by her growing affections, Helen never dreams that beneath the glamor of the city, hostilities are reaching a boiling point. When battle ultimately threatens both of the men in her life, she must make a choice: pursue the man who symbolizes her British past, or let herself love a man who promises an unknown future in the land she loves. But amid the casualties of war, will her declaration of love come too late?

This Regency romance is uniquely set in India. Helen has moved there with her mother and stepfather, Brigadier-General Jim Stackhouse, who has a military assignment there. She immediately meets two men--Captain Michael Rhodes, who has lived in India for a while and knows the people and customs very well and Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft, a handsome man who makes her swoon.

We get to see India through Helen's eyes and she's eager to take in the culture. I loved the descriptions and felt like I was experiencing India myself. There were parts that weren't appealing to me since I enjoy the comforts of living in America. Helen had a tough time with some things, too, and I liked how Michael helped her see things from a different perspective.

This is a gentle love story, that slowly grows throughout the book. Helen thought she knew what she wanted in a man but there were events that made her question that and focus on other characteristics. This is a book that I can easily recommend to anyone that enjoys a clean regency romance! I've enjoyed every book I've read of Jennifer Moore's and look forward to reading more in the future!
