    Again I am in the minority.This is my first book by this author, and most likely my last. I do not care for this tell all show nothing style of writing.There was entirely too much babbling, too much dialogue about drivel all useless banter. The heroine is an idiot. She has no clue if she was compromised or not. Then when she has sex for the first time, is still unsure even though she felt pain and bled.This is only one example of her stupidity.She was a complete jerk to the hero, and I am not bu [...]

    I was intrigued when I discovered that this book contains two of my favourite tropes in romance – that of “friends-become-lovers” and a marriage of convenience.Amelia Brice has been in love with Elijah Banks for as long as she can remember. They played together as children, their games normally resulting in her chasing him around trying to extract a kiss. As time has passed, Amelia’s feelings towards Elijah haven’t changed; and over the years, he has fallen in love with her, so right a [...]

    First off, I have to say I LOVE the cover of this book. Yes, I know you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover. But, really, how many of us have bought (or not bought) a book because of its cover? I know there are books that I purchased only because the cover was so beautiful. Some of them I loved, some of them not so much. The fact remains – cover art IS important, and this book has a beautiful cover.I will admit that I have not read the first two books in this series. However, this b [...]

    BORING! That is the only thing I can think of while reading this novel. I skimmed to just reading the dialogue because the story was so snooze-worthy. I didn't connect to any of the characters and their is no plot line at all - it is just a group of scenes, one after another. More than half-way through the book, there is an out of left field chapter about the hero's spy work on behalf of the Crown and how he is on his last mission (stopping a prostitution ring). This work ends in the scene befor [...]

    His Jilted Bride by Rose Gordon is the third book in the Bank Brother's Brides series and I have had the pleasure to read all three so far. I love series that allow me to continue to follow a family. I grow so fond of characters that I love to read more about them. Rose Gordon has done a fabulous job of creating a whole family that I have fallen in love with. I am quickly becoming a fan of Rose Gordon. She has wrote yet another story that has kept me completely captivated from beginning to end.A [...]

    Original Post on Romancing the Books blogReviewed by Crystal NReview copy from the AuthI am so happy that I decided to read this book. I have read several by this author before and I loved them.I couldn’t imagine what I would do if I had past out at a costume ball and woke up the next morning on a strange bed and my clothes half way off. I would be ashamed and I wouldn’t want to show my face. That isn’t what Amelia does. She decides to marry the guy who really makes her stomach sick. Even [...]

    I received a copy of His Jilted Bride in exchange for my honest review.Let me start this off by saying that whereas I have read other books by Miss Gordon (The Scandalous Sisters series to be exact), I’ve not yet ventured into the Banks Brothers series so this was my first time getting to know the brothers. And I can honestly say that I’m happy I did so.Amelia Brice has been in love with Elijah Banks since childhood even though in his eyes, she was just the annoying girl next door who would [...]


    Books Mom

    His Jilted Bride is both a typical and atypical historical romance. Typical because of the mores of the time (especially regarding women), but not so typical since this story doesn't deal so much with things most readers have come to expect like ballrooms and the ton. I have to admit first that I was a bit frustrated with the hero and heroine. They've been friends since childhood, but suddenly find it impossible to talk to one another? This was a story with a misunderstanding (or two) that could [...]

    It was not long into this book when I realized that this was my style of book! Completely! I love historical fiction, and when you add a nice little romance with a bit of spy on the side, as far as I am concerned, you have me hooked! This is a book that also has humor and something that I am not used to seeing. Are you ready for this? The two characters are virgins! If you know your history, that in itself is unbelievable. Historically, women were expected to remain pure until marriage (this fig [...]


    The Window Seat

    In my first reading of His Jilted Bride, I believe I encountered the down side to books that follow the same family or characters over multiple generations or branches. As a reader, I get very protective of the characters that I know; I tend to side completely with their point of view, I rarely see fault in how they approach a problem and it takes a great amount of convincing for me to accept the newer character if they create unneeded conflict within the relationship. Unfortunately, Lady Amelia [...]

    I read this book first even though it was the third in the series it was easy to follow along the story line. The heroine of the story was very likable and the hero was dashing and full of surprise. I absolutely loved the part where Elijah (the hero) and his twin Henry exchanged places.I recommend you give this series a try, whether you're like me and start with Jilted Bride or go from the beginning. A really great read and now I'm off to find the others in the series to see how it ends and how [...]

    A rather cute and romantic historical romance short story. The characters are well written and fun. There is a good plot with some mystery and tension. It was an enjoyable short read.

So it's a dream come true when Elijah [...]

    I received an eARC of His Jilted Bride in exchange for my honest review from the author. His Jilted Bride is the third book in the Banks Brother series and is about Elijah, one of Edward and Regina's twin sons. I absolutely LOVE the cover of this book. Rose always knows just the right look for her books; especially for cover freaks like me who will buy a book based on how good the cover art is. Amelia has been in love with Elijah Banks since they were kids, but he didn't return her feelings. Whe [...]

    His Jilted BrideRose GordonThe Jilted Bride is the third book in the Banks Brothers Brides series and once again the author did not disappoint! The characters are well developed and the plot line keeps you reading page after page. I definitely would recommend this set of books to anyone that likes romance and historical romance books.In “The Jilted Bride” we once again we follow the course of one of the Banks Brothers in an interesting tale of deception, spies and of course, love. The author [...]

    In this book Rose pulls of the imposable for me. She takes my favorite and least favorite Regency Trope, although you will have to read it to find out what they are, and weaves a tale that had me glued to my kindle as I waited to see how it would turn out. Amelia and Elijah both have a secret that they have to deal with. Added to that a couple of over heard conversations really make things hard for the couple. But Elijah is not one to give up on seeking the love of his wife. He is a great hero t [...]

    The trick of turning old friends into loversThis is a sultry book, the study of two innocents abroad in the world of lust and romance, with no idea of how to do anything about their feelings. As a result, (well, partially as a result), a series of errors becomes compounded, and would truly be a disaster except for a few bits of common sense and the tiny bits of assistance lent to the situation by family members (willingly or not). The young couple marry in haste, she because she thinks she may b [...]

    His Jilted Bride was a fun walk through Regency era England. Amelia is a vibrant and beautiful character that believes she has a deep secret - one that she must find a way to tell Elijah. Elijah is not only her husband now, but has been her friend for as long as she can remember. I very much admire Amelia for her morals and sticking to her beliefs - and even though she struggles to tell her secret, it's obvious that she wants to and just doesn't know how.Young Elijah ran from Amelia and her feel [...]


    Karen Wilson

    This is a sweet, fanciful story of young love growing into mature love. Since I don't really know what ladies know or don't know in that era, I am not certain if the situations Amelia found herself in/ thought about is believable. I had quite a bit of trouble suspending my belief in that portion.There is a bit of spy/intrigue business but I did not buy it either. For spies, they sure talk freely. And the same goes for the villains.The evil accomplice is also difficult to accept because the chara [...]

    This is a fun book! I loved the characters of Elijah and Amelia, even while I wanted to pick them up and shake them.I'm not normally a big fan of romances that could be solved if the characters would only talk to each other, but in this case Rose Gordon makes it work. Given the social mores of the time, Amelia's reluctance to talk to Elijah about sexual matters is understandable however, I had a little less patience with Elijah's reasoning.Even giving that---Ms. Gordon draws characters that are [...]
