With the collapse of the Peace of Amiens in 1803, the threat of invasion by Napoleon has all Britain frightened. Called up from half-pay to train a regiment of volunteers despite his crippling wounds, Lieutenant Bates is torn from the arms of his love, Katherine. His task is made harder when embroiled with the stormy relation between Jane and her suitor – a naval commander intent on promotion.
