The Traitor by Grace Burrowes
The past will overtake him...
Abandoned in France since boyhood, despite being heir to an English barony, Sebastian St. Clair makes impossible choices to survive a tour of duty in the French Army. He returns to England hoping for the peaceful life of a country gentleman, though old enemies insist on challenging him on the field of honor, one after another.

But this time, he will not fight alone...
Millicent Danforth desperately needs her position as companion to the Traitor Baron's aunt, but grieves to learn that Sebastian must continually fight a war long over. As Sebastian and Milly explore their growing passion, they uncover a plot that will cost Sebastian his life and his honor, unless he does battle once more-this time in the name of love.

The Traitor by Grace Burrowes (8/14)
[Captive Hearts Trilogy - 2] (A Subtle+)
Dark Romance - Redemption - PTSD - Dyslexia - Heroine: Virgin (25)

I would say these books need to be read in sequence and would not stand alone very well.


As a young boy, British-born Sebastian St. Clair was abandoned in France while visiting his grandparents and forced to join the French army to survive. He was tasked with the torture of British officer captives. He has PTSD and the ending Redemption was very fine.

Milly is a 25-year-old Virgin, hired as a companion to Sebastian's aunt. Milly can't read, dyslexia probably, photographic memory though.

In the 2014 AAR Poll "Most Tortured Romance Hero" I voted for Sebastian.
