Release in UK (Feb 1986- Publisher: Mills & Boon) as: "Improper Acquaintances" From the moment Miss Charis Winslade met Major Daniel Hammond in a sudden thunderstorm, she could see that though he was an officer, he decidedly was no gentleman. She had only to feel his mocking eyes insolently surveying her drenched figure to know that this incredibly handsome man was not bound by the dictates of society or propriety. And she had only to learn that his trophies on the fields of love quite matched his medals won in war to have proof positive that his burning gaze and tender words were no more to be trusted than the instant response they stirred in her.
Never would so spirited a young lady as Charis let so faithless a suitor win her hand . . . even after she had already lost her heart!
