Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Maxwell Davies returned from the Crimean War wounded and broken. He no longer fits into high society and wants nothing more than to escape and hide the depth of his pain and trauma from the world.

Miss Josephine Brewer is an outcast of society due to the scandalous nature of her birth. The illegitimate daughter of a gentleman and his mistress, she stands between two worlds - neither of which she completely belongs to.

During a week-long house party, the two will succumb to a powerful attraction. Will Maxwell’s plans for a solitary life and Josephine’s unsuitability make any sort of future impossible for them, or will their burgeoning love prove strong enough to overcome it all?

Beautiful Story!

This was my first Elise Marion's book. This is the first book in the Men at Arms. Maxwell and Josephine's story is sweet, sexy, and beautiful. They are both fantastic characters. Sarah Kempton did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series, Cherishing the Captain. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Lovely

Loving the Lieutenant is a lovely story and the start of what looks to be a poignant series, reminiscent of Mary Balogh's Survivors books. Josephine has breeding and privilege but has been denied love, having been born on the wrong side of the blanket and more horrifying--from the wrong colored mother. Lieutenant Maxwell was injured in a pointless battle where most of his brothers-in-arms died. Nothing in their past suggests they should ever meet, much less fall in love, but Ms. Marion brings them together in a charming and utterly believable tale that left me eager for the next volume. Where The Rogue Prince was a madcap adventure/romance, this is a quietly beautiful book, and I am extremely grateful to the author for gifting me a copy of the audiobook in return for an honest review. I look forward to reading/listening to Cherishing the Captain.

GREAT READ!

I really enjoyed it! This book was full of steamy, explicit sex! The narration was great and kept me entertained! The author did a great job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last. I look forward to reading more books in this series!

Love and Prejudice

A wonderful story of love and healing between Josephine, a lady of mixed birth and Maxwell, the second son of an Earl, seriously wounded in battle. I enjoyed reading about them as their love blossomed while they faced the prejudices of their time.

Fantastic listen

Yet another great story from the fabulous Elise Marlon. Wonderful narration from Sarah Kempton. Tells the story of veterans of the Crimean War with a subtle love story. I really enjoyed this book, have re-read it a number of times, just wished it was longer. I highly recommend this book.
