On the eve of going into battle, Lady Amelie's fiancé dumps her, leaving her on the streets of Brussels to fend for herself. When she is accosted, her sister-in-law's brother, Lt. Edmund Summerfield, comes to her rescue. Feeling unwanted and unloved, Amelie is desperate for proof that she is desired. So she gives into the attraction between them and they spend the night together. Although she has heard that the first time does not yield consequences, she soon finds out how wrong those words are.

Three months later, Edmund returns from battle, just recently recovered from his injuries. Learning that Amelie is carrying his child, he determines to make matters right. After all, he has suffered the slings and arrows of his own illegitimacy all his life and he refuses to put his own child through the same thing. But when tragedy strikes on their honeymoon and Amelie's parents continue to make their disapproval of the match more than apparent, do they stand a chance of changing their marriage from one of convenience into one of true love? Or will outside forces tear them apart?

Deliciously romantic, BOUND BY ONE SCANDALOUS NIGHT, the second book in award-winning author Diane Gaston's THE SCANDALOUS SUMMERFIELDS series, is a witty, passionate tale that is sure to warm the hearts of any historical romance fan. Although circumstances bring these two together one night, the chemistry between them is undeniable. It is thoughts of her that help get Edmund through the war, but he doesn't figure there is a future for them. However, once he sees her again and discovers what their night together has rendered, he will do whatever it takes to make her his own.

In the pages of this novel, Ms. Gaston does a wonderful job of bringing to life the chaos and uncertainty in the streets of Brussels on the eve of battle. An absolute delight, this story is one that readers will find hard to put down.

The main characters from this first story also play a part in BOUND BY A SCANDALOUS NIGHT, an aspect of Ms. Gaston's novels that I truly enjoy.
