    Fantastic romance!

    A wonderfully written, heartbreakingly sweet story! Sophie, Lady Wilmot (née Gardiner), has returned to London at her deceased husband's urging. She knows she has things that must be done. Her husband has set certain tasks and requests in motion upon his death. It was 1 year ago and Tom, Lord Wilmot's letters to family and friends have been released. Sophie is obliged to follow Tom's requests and he was very thorough and very specific in some of these wishes. So to London, she and her son Ian go. She is distressed to learn that Tom has elected a guardian for Ian. The one man in this world that Sophie could never forget, her first love. Aiden Somerville, Lord Forster has never forgiven Sophie. She found a richer man to marry her even though he asked her to wait for him and she promised she would. He was going to war, not carousing in London. He was heartbroken, and determined to seek revenge as soon as possible! He is, also, suspicious of Tom's sudden death. Could Sophie have something to do with that as well? His letter, from a now deceased man, gives him the opportunity he sought. But what happens when these two lovers are finally together? Will the emotion be too much or will they both try to remain cold and unfeeling in the presence of the other? Will Sophie prove to be the unfeeling gold-digger that Aiden thinks she is or will a different story emerge? Rachael Miles has written a wonderfully engaging story! I was hooked from the fist chapter and did not put it down (much) until it was done! The writing is very good, period correct, but then I read her bio, of course, it would be since she is a professor of book history and nineteenth-century literature! The ebb and flow of the story is perfectly timed to keep the reader very interested in the outcome of the book. I HAD to know what happened! How could Sophie so what she did to Aiden? And how are they going to get past this for Ian. Being in the same room with someone you despise is hard enough but to have to mask your feelings for the sake of an innocent child is even harder, but Mrs. Miles has told the story very well. This story made me cringe, made me laugh, made me cry. It was lovely! I loved this one so much that I already purchased the next! This will definitely go on the re-read shelf!

    Noteworthy Debut!

    Debut author Rachael Miles offers a work noteworthy for its depth and craftsmanship in Jilting The Duke, the first book in her Muses' Salon series. Abundant in character history this story built nicely and offered a complicated view of the human heart. The past revelations of the hero and heroine, framed by misunderstandings, long denied desires and a suspenseful spy plot leave no room for disappointment in this novel. Writer Rachael Miles is a great new addition to historical romance! *I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

    Absolutely Fantastic Regency Suspenseful Romance!

    This is the first story I’ve read by this author and I now intend to read the rest of her stories, she is that good a writer. The historical research she has done is obvious in the depth of her understanding of the social mores of the Regency/Napoleonic era, the political climate of that era and the subterfuge citizens had to engage in to navigate the niceties and stupidities of courtship and marriage rules during that era. This is basically a second chance romance for Aidan, Duke of Forster, and Sophia Gardiner, and it is a rocky one as they wend their way through mistaken errors of the past, vicious relatives, spies out to “do them in,” and their love and devotion for the children in their care…and each other. I LOVE this author’s writing!

    JILTING THE DUKE

    So good I could not put it down took it everywhere with me until I had finished it. So true to life I could have been watching from behind a curtain.
