The Earl I Adore by Joanne Wadsworth
This is suspenseful, exciting and romantic. James is honorable, stubborn, caring and protective. Sophia is determined, independent, bold and impulsive. They met the previous year and started courting, but he broke it off to join the war. He's back now, because his father and brother were murdered, and she wants to pick up where they left off. He keeps pushing her away because his life might be in danger and he doesn't want to make her a target. He's just having a really hard time staying away.
