The Lost Love of a Soldier by Jane Lark Review

The stunning prequel to Kindle bestseller The Illicit Love of a Courtesan!
Life is for grasping and living...

Naïve and innocent, Lady Ellen Pembroke falls for a dashing young army officer. Captain Paul Harding has such an easy, enchanting smile and his blue eyes glow; vibrancy and warmth emanating from him. She is in love.

In turn, the Captain finds his attention captured by the beautiful young daughter of the Duke of Pembroke at a house party in the summer. Finding Ellen is like finding treasure on the battle field. His sanity clings to her - something beautiful to remind him that not all in the world is ugly.

Ellen is someone to fight for and someone to survive for when he is inevitably called to arms in the battle of Waterloo...

To begin with, this book is a prequel to The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, so do not expect to find a happily ever after here. What you will find, it a gut ripping cliffhanger.
While reading a The Lost Love of a Soldier I cried. I actually cried from beginning to end, ugh there were parts of this story that completely ripped my heart out.
At the beginning of this book Paul, the 6th son of an Earl, has fallen in love with Lady Ellen. Ellen returns his love most deeply. But Ellen's father is against the match and wants Ellen to marry the old Duke of Argyll. I will have to stop there as I don't wish to give away any spoilers.
Jane Lark is a beautiful writer and The Lost Love of a Soldier is yet another example of her fabulous writing, I am not normally a fan of prequels and especially not cliffhangers, but with this book I will make the exception.
I give The Lost Love of a Soldier 9 out of 10 and hopefully I will be able to stop crying at some point today.
