Jilting the Duke by Rachael Miles

Jilting the Duke by Rachael Miles

This is book 1 in the Muses' Salon series.

Aiden Somerville, the Duke of Forster, learns that he is to become the co-guardian of his best friend's son. The only problem is that the other guardian is his friend's widow, Sophia Gardiner. Sophia just happens to have been Aiden's fiancee before he left for war. Before even leaving the country, he learns of their marriage and is heartbroken. He will do his duty to his ward, but he has plans of revenge for the boy's mother.

Sophia knew that Aiden would eventually become her son's guardian, but was trying to put off that moment for as long as she could. With Aiden back in her life, she can't help but wonder if they might get a second chance at love.

Aiden is determined to get his revenge, but he realizes that he still loves Sophia. Can that love let him forget about his need for revenge?

I LOVED this story!! I'm always a sucker for lovers being reunited.

I loved watching Aiden interact with Sophia's son. It truly showed you what type of man he was. He was hurt by Sophia and wanted revenge, but you could see throughout the story that his love for her outweighed his need for revenge. We watched as both of them tried to deny that they still had feeling for the other, but when it's true love, there is no denying it!

It's not often that you have a new author that just blows you away with her writing, but Miles is definitely one of them. I can't wait to read the rest of the Muses' Salon Series. I'm sure it will be just as good as this one!!
