4.5 stars

I think it's been quite some time that I rated a romance book above solid 4 stars. But with this book, I was reminded again why I loved historical romances and Edith Layton's books in particular.

Have to admit, her books not always a hit, there were some that were quite bad, but The Choice would always be one of my most treasured story. I loved it so much. And this story reminded me a bit of The Choice, but only from the synopsis and a bit at the beginning. And then, it became a beautifu

Three men and one woman - now wouldn't those be nice odds. :) Although there's really no mystery as to who she'll end up with, it is a good story.

This is one of the first books from Edith Layton, published one year after The Duke's Wager. I liked it much more than her later works (the c series, a couple of which I started and never finished. I have no idea why it is so underrated. In my opinion it is one of the best regencies I read this year (except Heyer's).

Really enjoyed this one. The beginning is one of the best. And though there isn't any doubt who she will end up with, the journey of how she gets there is a really fun read. Loved how in the end how very insightful she becomes, of her beaus feelings and of her father, of herself. Lots of good lines in here. Also the hero and heroines dearest wish is so very bittersweet.

Edith Layton wrote her first novel when she was ten. She bought a marbleized notebook and set out to write a story that would fit between its covers. Now, an award-winning author with more than thirty novels and numerous novellas to her credit, her criteria have changed. The story has to fit the reader as well as between the covers.
