After the Battle of Waterloo, Captain Alec Hayes is presumed dead and soon correspondence with the French are found in his personal things, which makes him a traitor to the British. But Alec isn’t dead, and for years he tries to find the evidence to clear his name. With the help of an influential friend, his works for the Home office, to prove his loyalty to the British crown. One of his assignments takes him back to his hometown, where he falls in love with Cressida, but he doesn’t want to allow himself to get entangled with any woman till his name is cleared. What he doesn’t count on is Cressida.

I really enjoyed this book and you can’t really do anything wrong when you are looking for an entertaining Regency romance and pick up a book by Caroline Linden. FOR YOUR ARMS ONLY is no exception to the rule. You won’t be able to put down the book because you want to solve the mystery of who is behind the incriminating correspondence that blackened Alec’s name. Alec and Cressida are both lovable characters. He is the wronged hero and she the heroine who is desperately in need of some love. Sometimes Cressida’s behavior seems to be a little untypical for the time and age of the time period the book takes place. But if you can oversee this small thing you are in for an overall good story that will entertain you well. I am looking forward to read more of Ms. Linden’s book.
