Thanks for telling us about the problem. The most beautiful rescue ever, actually.

Wounded in the Peninsular War, di Kidnapped by an elderly member of the peerage! She has had an unconventional upbringing but is a gently bred, pretty young lady and granny has ulterior motives. Heroine had a tortured past, who was a war heroine with history of assault, which society has frowned upon rather than be sympathetic or even proud of her.
