Waterloo Brides

In 1815, allied forces met near a small village in Belgium, called Waterloo, to make a final stand against the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, and his loyal followers.

To mark the bi-centenary of the battle of Waterloo, Sarah Mallory, Louise Allen and I have written a trilogy of love stories featuring officers in a fictional artillery regiment, known as Randall's Rogues.

All three books in this series have been awarded 4* "hot" reviews from RT!


From February 28th (which was the date Bonaparte escaped from Elba, and began his 100 days struggle to reclaim his empire), you will be able to follow Colonel Randall, Major Bartlett, and Major Flint on twitter.

And you'll find the authors posting about the background research, and sharing other news about the series, on facebook.


Please keep checking back - I'll be updating this page when there's any news about the Waterloo Brides.

The Series is now available in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

A Rose for Major Flint


Louise Allen's stunning finale to the trilogy is available from Amazon, Mills & Boon, and itunes.

"I fight dirty, I kill for a living and I'm not capable of being faithful"

Is it any wonder cataromance gave Major Flint a 5* review!

"...Louise Allen’s name on a book jacket is a surefire guarantee of historical romance brilliance and A Rose for Major Flint is an outstanding addition to this talented author’s extraordinary back catalogue. Written with all the flair, panache and historical veracity which have become this multi award-winning writer’s trademarks, A Rose for Major Flint is a dazzling tale of sin, scandal and seduction that has got it all: spellbinding characters, mesmerizing historical details, powerful emotion, red-hot passion and poignant romance..."

A Mistress for Major Bartlett


My contribution to the series is available now, from Amazon, Harlequin, Mills & Boon and itunes.

By following the Mills & Boon link, you can also read the opening chapter! Just click on the little pink tab at the bottom of the cover, where it says "take a look".

RT has given the book another 4* "hot" review, which is a stunning endorsement for our series.

" Burrows continues the Brides of Waterloo mini series with a passionate and emotional tale readers will love. Burrows' instalment is focussed on a spoiled miss and a rakish soldier. There is a vast gulf between them - socially and emotionally - but it's nothing that love can't conquer."
Maria Ferrer.

The Library Journal has this to say about 'A Mistress for Major Bartlett':

“A notorious but honorable rake and a proud, sometimes reckless heroine flout convention and find unlikely love in a story that doesn’t gloss over the heartbreaking brutality of war.”

A lovely review from Romantic Historical Reviews:

...an enjoyable, well-told story...one I’d certainly recommend to anyone who likes their historical romance to be sprinkled liberally with actual history!

And another lovely review from Cataromance, who awarded it another 4*

The cover (which I absolutely love) is up for an award from Cover Cafe.

A Lady for Lord Randall


The first story, "A Lady for Lord Randall" by Sarah Mallory, is available now from Mills & Boon, and Harlequin.

By clicking on either of these links, you can enjoy a sneak preview of the opening of Sarah's moving adventure story, by using the "look inside" feature on the cover image.

Sarah's book is also available for pre-order from Amazon .com and AmazonUK

RT has given Sarah's book a 4* "hot" review:

"Brides of Waterloo is a new miniseries by three leading authors: Mallory, Annie Burrows and Louise Allen. This first book is passionate, moving and a positive gem. From the drawing rooms of London to the battlefield of Waterloo, a radical schoolmistress and a cynical military colonel will clash – and fall in love."

Louise Allen's contribution to the series, 'A Rose for Major Flint', has also been awarded a 4* "hot" review from RT:

"Allen pens the last book in the Brides of Waterloo trilogy. It's a delightful, well-written and engaging romance about a rascal who rescues a damsel in distress only to lose his heart."

The Library Journal has this to say about 'A Rose for Major Flint':

“A tender, well-written story that brings a loyal, baseborn officer and a gently bred heroine together in a satisfying romance that nicely ties up the series.”

And Sarah Mallory blogged about some research we needed to do, to get our wounded officers off the battlefield. Scroll down until you reach the post entitled, Flying Ambulances and German Sausages.
