2015 book 84

Mary Balogh's Slightly Sinful
The 5th Bedwyn book was waaaay better than the last couple, mainly because no one is a jerk! It centers on Alleyne--presumed dead in the last one--being discovered naked after Waterloo and nursed back to health by a pretty young lady who happens to live with a bunch of jolly prostitutes. Of course, SHE is not a prostitute, and thus is allowed to be the heroine of a romance novel. Anyway, Alleyne of course has amnesia (AMNESIA!!!!!), and he and the pretty young lady enter into a fake marriage for the purpose of getting her inheritance so she can give the jolly prostitutes money to start a bed and breakfast (it's a long story). Everything ends up EVEN BETTER than you might imagine. Solidly entertaining. A-.
