Mary Balogh's "Web of Love" - #2 in the Web series

Web of Love - Mary Balogh

The best, by far, of the Web trilogy. Even better on the second reading than the first one almost a year ago. The chapters where the hero is recovering from his battle wounds in Ellen's house and falling in love with her (and she with him) are beyond beautiful. There is also a delightful secondary romance, and Madeline's and James' story gets an update in preparation for the final book in the series.
