His Jilted Bride by Rose Gordon
The Banks Brother’s Series Book 3
Elijah Banks had always run away from his little neighbor girl, who insisted on trying to kiss him every chance she got. As they got older, they became friends. At one point, Elijah began to feel more for her then disdain for her kisses or friendship. Was it too late to tell her how he felt? And what about the secrets he couldn’t tell her?




Lady Amelia Brice had a secret about a night she couldn’t remember. That one night was going to dictate her life, including marriage to someone she couldn’t stand. She only ever loved one person but she couldn’t wait for him forever. So she would have to marry to protect herself and family because of her mystery evening.. Thankfully she is rescued from marriage to a reprobate by the man she cared for, but being married out of pity doesn’t seem any better.




His Jilted Bride is another excellent book in this series. I always enjoy the author’s humor along with secrets, intrigue and surprises that fill the pages. Not to mention Mr. Henry Hirsute, an interesting character to be sure. It was great revisiting with all the Banks relatives and getting to know the twins, Elijah and Henry. Henry’s story will be coming next, His Brother’s Bride.

The story was good with lost of plot twist to keep you interested. The only reason i gave it 3 stars is because i found the heroine Amelia to be a shrew and i dont like shrewish women who hit below the belt to protect themselves. Elijiah was a good hero who had a lot of secrets that he had to keep causing some of the conflicts but overall he was a good hero. Based on their long friendship i didnt feel that some many secrets where good especially HR's after he saves her rep the least she could have done be honest with H.
Just found i couldnt connect with Amelia she was ice for too long and even when warm still a little prickly.

    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 book is great as a stand-alone novel. Once I finished this book, I read the “blurbs” for the first two and I can see that the additional background info could be helpful. I’ll just have to go back and read them since I enjoyed this one so much.




    This is a fun, regency romance with a little mystery too.  That element of mystery is one thing that makes this book stand out. From the beginning, we know Amelia’s secret. What we don’t know is Elijah’s secret. We get bits and pieces throughout the book. Little clues are spattered here and there as the story progresses. This builds anticipation and even suspense. 




    The complexity and dynamics of the relationship between Amelia and Elijah keep the story moving. Because they both have secrets and they both believe the other doesn’t love them, it’s nothing short of a roller coaster ride. Elijah is so sweet. He tries so hard to show Amelia that he loves her, but the underlying motivation isn’t his love – and she sees that, not his love. When he finally “gives up” so-to-speak and he takes her to Bath for an outing, I fell in love with him myself. I didn’t care what his secret was – I wanted Amelia to “wake up” and see how much Elijah loved her. 




    Amelia has loved Elijah her entire life, but he never thought of her as more than a friend. She’s always held out hope that one day he would fall in love with her, but when he “rescues” and marries her, she still thinks he sees her as only a friend. She’s so convinced that he married her out of some kind of obligation that she can’t see that he has fallen in love with her. Fortunately, things eventually work out for the two of them, as it should.




    I really enjoyed reading “His Jilted Bride”. It didn’t feel like your typical regency romance with the focus on all the strict rules and social pressures – it was a fun read and I really enjoyed the dynamics of the Banks family along with the relationship between Elijah and Amelia (not to mention trying to figure out Elijah’s secret).  




    For those who want to know, when Elijah and Amelia finally consummated their marriage it was open door.  I personally prefer less detail, but I loved the book so much I continued reading.

    I really enjoyed Amelia and Elijah's story. It was filled with romance, secrets, and danger. I instantly loved Amelia's character. She tried her best to do the right thing when put in difficult situations. Even when those right things could have made her life miserable. Luckily, Elijah (her childhood sweetheart and man she still holds a tendre for) finally excepts his feelings for Amelia and steps in to save her. Because of their past it's hard for them to be comfortable together. I loved experiencing their journey and watching them get the happily ever after they both deserved.

    This is another great book by Rose Gordon.  I really enjoyed the book and it was nice to have some intrigue in the plot as well. There were a few scenes that left me wondering if I had missed  something and had me going back to  see if I had skipped a page on accident, but over all the book was very enjoyable and I highly recommend it. as well as her other books in the series. The character of Elijah first appears in Rose's book "Her Sudden Groom" Book One of her Groom Series.
