'Once a Soldier' by Mary Jo Putney is book one in the "Rogues Redeemed" This is the story of Will Masterson and Athena Markham.
Will and some other men had been taking and would be put to death at dawn. They all but said what they would change about their life if they could make it out. When the men all came together to escape they formed a alliance with each other and called themselves Rogues Redeemed.
Once Napoleon surrendered Will had one more assignment that has lead him to meet Athena.
Athena is a somewhat different than most women of that time. Athena was and illegitimate daughter who was raised with knowledge and to think for herself...she is a very strong person.
I found Will and Athena were a good fit as a historical romance couple that I found very hard to put this book and their story down.
I just can't wait to read the other story to come and see what happened to the other Rogues!
I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
