Now Available!

Book #3 of the Jilted Brides Trilogy

CHERYL HOLT delivers the delightful, emotional, and stunning conclusion to her Jilted Brides trilogy…

Amelia Boyle has always viewed herself as an extremely modest and moral woman. But after suffering a string of personal catastrophes, she went a bit wild and made several reckless decisions. Her spurt of excess culminated in her becoming engaged to a man she barely knew. When he promptly jilted her at the altar, the cruel act yanked her to her senses. She’s been forced to admit she has frivolous tendencies, and she vows to never let them flare again.

James Hastings loves his life in the army, and he doesn’t plan to ever retire. He’s a confirmed bachelor who spends his days around active, tough men who are proud to serve King and country. He’s not interested in marriage or settling down, and he has no time for women and no patience for flirtation.

But when Amelia stumbles into his dull, boring world, she turns it upside down, and it gradually dawns on him that he might not be able to live without her. Amelia has sworn off romance though and has other plans that don’t include binding herself to a handsome, dashing soldier. Can James convince her that he might be precisely who and what she needs to be happy?

I really hate to see a series you have enjoyed come to an end. The characters in all three of the books were so well developed that it was easy to relate to and enjoy reading their stories. Each of the books in this series can be read out of order and stand on their own but it makes it easier to follow and enjoy if read together in order. It makes answering questions much easier.

Amelia needs to escape London where she was jilted at the altar. The faster the better before people start talking. So she takes a job as a travel companion. Amelia is getting ready to head to Gibraltar.  Amelia was strong in most instances other than running away because she was rather afraid to deal with the fallout of being jilted. She soon was rescued by an unlikely gentleman. The brother of the lady she was a companion for. He wanted nothing to do with any of it at first. But Amelia tended to win him over.

The sparks flew slowly at first which was the same with the other books; I liked how refreshing this was. A nice slow pace made for a more enjoyable read. When Amelia first saw Lord Denby he was riding a horse practically naked. This was by the way was rather sexy and just a bit on the hot side. Sexy as he was he was also very rude and conceited. As much as I wanted to not like Lord Denby or James Hasting I found that I liked him a little too much because he came to Amelia’s rescue and fell for her.

Overall the characters and vivid descriptions made this an entertaining story. I enjoyed it when some characters from the other stories would show up or be mentioned. It was like one big family.

Ms. Holt gave us a great series. Any lover of a good Historical Romance with simply enjoys all three in the Jilted Brides series. Ms. Holt gave us great storylines and characters very easy to like.

I finished JILTED BY A ROGUE this morning.  First, I have to say that James reminded me a lot of Peyton [from Book 1] and Hayden from your book, FOREVER.

As to Amelia and James, it seemed that Amelia, who had only had her brother, Evan, and her mother to care about her and James, who had never really had anyone to care about him, were perfect for each other.  She seemed to be overall a very sweet and totally British young woman and he was a man who was running from his British roots.  After the sudden and unexpected death of her mother, and her brother being far away, Amelia seemed to lose her way for a little while.  She went to Gibraltar to be with her brother, but he was away in the navy, and they did not really know when he would return.  She met James who wanted to stay in the army, the place where he had found a home and a purpose so badly that he was hiding the extent of his injury and that he had inherited an earldom.

Brinley was a real pill, and I have to wonder if you have any plans for her to show up in a later book.  All in all it was a great story, and I felt a good way to wrap up the series.

“I just had to let you know, I just finished the “Jilted” trilogy.  It was FABULOUS! I laughed, I cried, I got angry and I smiled.  I waited until I knew I had a few days to myself to just read and I started Thursday night and finished about an hour ago.  I was never disappointed. Thank you so much for making my weekend.”
