Gallant Waif by Anne Gracie – FictionDB
Spine is lightly galant and split at bottom. No sex scenes, but a couple scenes I should mention for my clean reader friends view spoiler [1-Jack is injured in the war and while Kate is tending to his injured leg, his body responds.
The language used in this time period irritates me. And Ooh how beautifully it was painted. Somehow, we were always warm, clean, well fed and happy. Kate storms into Jack’s life and starts cleaning up Return to Book Page.

I loved the characters — each and every one of them. A handsome man, disfigured and disabled in the war, disowned by his father and subsequently abandoned by his fiance, he has retreated from the world.
What I also loved was their constant bickering and banter.
It ends with everything all nicely tied up and the last few tallant are much better but I fear theirs will always be a tumultuous relationship. I absolutely loved Kate and I admire her.
Thankfully a curmudgeonly grandmother and an interfering friend nudge our hero into action, despite some very obvious misunderstandings on both parts. To point something, this is my first time counting how many times I cried whole reading a book, in this one I cried 3 time!!
