In 1814 her father a vicar married sixteen year old Diana to Huntley. Her new spouse is a nasty brute who abuses his young bride. When his friends trap her in an ugly situation, Michael David Lawrence, the Duke of Smythington and a member of the Lucky Seven, intercedes. Following that incident, Diana refused to accept crap from her ugly husband even when David vanishes.
Four years later, Huntley has been dead for over a year, but her father wants Diana to marry Lord Runsfield. She never told him what an abomination her first marriage was, but refuses to wed anyone though she wishes her savior David was available. David has just returned to England after being held prisoner by a Barbary prince. He seeks internal peace and so he decides to wander until he recovers his equilibrium before taking over his dukedom. David sees Diana traveling by herself and decides he must keep safe the woman he fell in love with four years, not realizing she may be his healer.
RIDE THE WIND HOME is an enjoyable Regency romance that stars two delightful lead protagonists. The story line is exciting although the country seems loaded with too many repulsive aristocratic males. Still the tale catches the audience attention from the moment the two stars meet and never releases the reader until the final climax.
