Goodreads Summary

From the moment they met, Marjie’s heart has belonged to handsome Captain Stanley Jonquil, younger brother of the Earl of Lampton. But six long months ago, when Stanley’s sense of honor required that he do as he had sworn and return to the Continent to fight in defense of King and country, neither Stanley nor Marjie could have dreamed what the cost of his service would be. It has been ages since Stanley last wrote, and Marjie and the Jonquil family are plagued by his unknown fate—until the day he unexpectedly reappears. Marjie’s joy, however, is quickly shadowed by confusion—the aloof, battle-worn soldier before her is not the man he once was. In the wake of Stanley’s blatant disinterest in renewing their acquaintance, Marjie’s devastation turns to determination as she vows to help him find peace. But his scars run far deeper than anyone realizes. Despite his feelings for her, Stanley believes Marjie deserves a man whose hands are not stained with the violence of battlefields and whose mind and heart are not haunted by the horrors he has seen. Honor requires Stanley to return once more to the life he has grown to despise, one he knows will destroy him in the end, even as his heart beckons him to stay with Marjie, the only woman he could ever love, and the promise, at last, of redemption.

My Review

For Love or Honor is another masterpiece by Sarah Eden.  Sarah is one of my favorite authors.  I can always count on a well developed, lovely story from her.  Her writing is perfect.  This book is heartbreakingly beautiful.  I ached for Stanley and his hardships.  He is so brave, but needed to learn to forgive himself for the battlefield.  Accepting his wounds was his toughest battle.  I loved Marjie, she had her own hardships to overcome as well, but I loved how strong she was.  Pluck was a delight.  He brought humor and help wherever he was.  There is a great scene with Pluck and Marjie, that is very touching.  Sorrel had her struggles, but I admire her character and the amazing women she is.  Phillip was wonderfully Phillip.  I love all the Jonquil brothers, but he holds a special place in my heart.    

5 out of 5 stars.  I loved this book. It makes me want to read all the Jonquil books again and again.
