    This is the first book I have read by McCarthy and I was hooked from the start. with a mixture of 4 insufferably loving brothers, an arrogant guilt ridden Earl, and a interfering aunt, made this book a page turner. I look forward to reading other works by this author.

    I absolutely adored this story! I love great characters with subtle humor in a fun setting.

    Emily and Jared have a past. They once wanted to marry, but when Jared left without a word and married another, Emily was left heartbroken and devastated. Years later, their paths cross again and neither of them are sure they can handle it.

    I love a good lost love story. It was written in a way that was easy for me to sympathize with Emily--I could feel her pain and sorrow. Emily is a strong character, not willing to sit back without a fight while her four brothers try to find her the perfect match. She has a mind of her own and pushes the limits of what is acceptable for a lady in this time.

    Jared has many secrets. He can't quite resist Emily, but for many reasons, he has to try. I wish he would've (or could've) been more trusting. Roderick, the oldest brother, has secrets as well. It almost seems like it's okay for him to do something, but Emily can't do the same thing without a big deal made.

    The brothers and different encounters with potential suitors had me laughing and smiling throughout; the romance was toe-tingling and sweet; and the aunt/cousin were great, too. A very enjoyable and purely fun story!

    Content: clean romance; mild language; mild violence. Clean!

    Jared and Emily's past is fraught with love, loss, betrayal, bro

    Jared and Emily's past is fraught with love, loss, betrayal, broken promises, broken trust, and secrets. Their present is filled with the same.

    With so many issues between them coupled with present issues that are just as dire, I wondered how these two would resolve their past and gain a future together. But they did, though the road to happily ever after wasn't without its fair share of twists and turns. It was interesting to watch Jared and Emily's hearts soften toward each other, to see those carefully erected walls come down brick by brick until each was ready to profess, without hesitation, their love for one another.

    It was annoying, to no end, her brothers' highhandedness throughout the story. Oh, I know the practice of marriages arranged by male relatives for the females in their family were commonplace but it doesn't make Emily' brothers' approach any less irritating. Still, it made for some interesting battles of will and words between them and her.

    Trust, the lack of it really, was a major theme in this story. The trust Jared and Emily once shared had been lost when he left because he had to. Though fragile at first, it gained strength as they spent time together and overcame the obstacles in their way only to be shattered almost at the end. While I understand Emily's argument that Jared should have told her about his daughter, I also understand Jared's reasons for keeping her a secret. He apologized for withholding that from her, but I felt she should've been more understanding toward him, especially once he explained it was for his daughter's safety, not to hurt Emily.

    A lovely story of love lost and found, of lovers reunited, of dreams finally coming true. Ms. McCarthy's characters are memorable and relatable, the plot well thought out and believable, the dialogue a direct reflection of the characters' emotions and feelings. I was in the mood for a good historical last night, and I found it in the pages of "The Rejected Suitor."
