Ophelia Elliot has delayed marriage long enough Now for the sake of her future she must choose between three impatient suitors But she’s determined to use only the most rational of methods to make her decision And when her dear friend Sidney Mason offers to help how can the discerning debutante resist? Besides spending time with him is no hardship—his dashing looks and irresistible laughter have delighted her for years Not that Sidney is a suitable prospect As a member of Parliament he’s already married to the state No matter how chivalrous his attentions falling in love with him would be most unreasonable The fact is Sidney finds Ophelia infuriatingly stubborn—and yet there is no other woman for him Convincing her that she must marry for love—his love—will be a formidable challenge So he concocts a clever strategy to expose her suitors’ true natures—and show the strong willed beauty that when it comes to marriage it is imperative that she follow her heart—straight into his strong and loving arms

    This novella was a short sweet read that I enjoyed uite a lot I love the friends to lovers trope and it is done uite well here The Story Ophelia needs to choose a husband from the 3 suitors that have been courting her Her long time friend Sidney has offered to help her find out about these guys to inform her decisionMy Thoughts I liked Sidney uite a lot He is a great hero that you totally root for Ophelia seems a little slow to the party for my taste but I guess if she realized everything any earlier you wouldn't have much of a story The prose is nice and the book reads very uickly I finished this in one sitting on a lovely Sunday morning with my coffee I would have enjoyed seeing the culmination of their passion sex but was the only thing I felt was missing from this sweet satisfying romanceThe Bottom Line If you enjoy historicals andor friends to lovers this is an easy no brainer I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back for from this author when I need a nice pick me up 4 stars

    1805Ophelia Gardiner is avoiding marriage because she cannot seem to choose which suitor suits her Her large family is urging her to make a choice and are offering their opinionsOne suitor is Sidney Mason a neighbor The man has grace style and is cheerful But Ophelia insists that they could only ever be friends While Sidney is a good choice Ophelia feels he is so enmeshed in his Parliament duties that theirs would not be a good marriage However Sidney is uite skilled in his diplomacy which helps to improve cooperation between the political factionsToday is Ophelia’s birthday and all of her family and friends have given her gifts Tonight Sidney is taking all of them to a play There he begins to point out the things that might make his competition for Ophelia’s hand look bad He does try to list the good things and bad things of each man for her to consider Sidney seems to be the perfect choice but Ophelia wonders if their marriage would be boring Whom will she choose?This is simply an OK story and I felt it lacked real substance to make it appeal to readers Unfortunately it did not appeal to me I did like Sidney and found him to be a terrific choice and couldn’t figure out why Ophelia seemed so blasé about making a choiceCopy provided by NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review

    This was a wonderful addition to The Muse's Salon series One of the things that I enjoy most about this series is that you do not have to have read any of the other books in order to enjoy the next For a novella these characters were well developed and the story line moved just fast enough to keep and hold the reader's interest I enjoyed watching the romance between Sidney and Ophelia bloom and I was definitely excited to find out that these two characters will appear in a later hopefully full length novel I can't wait to read about their love story and their adventures together I believe this story will still appeal to a lot of romance fans and I will definitely continue on with The Muse's Salon series DISCLAIMER I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review This has not affected my review in any way All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own

    This was an OK story for me Ophelia must choose a husband before the choice is taken away from her Sidney Mason her next door neighbor and friend has loved Ophelia since he first laid eyes on her but she has clearly kept him in the friend category The story moves forward as Sidney tries to convince Ophelia that his love is pureWhile the writing was well done and I did love Sidney's character I didn't feel any sense of urgency or loss as Ophelia continues to waffle between her suitors I thought her character naive and a little shallow that she couldn't figure out what Sidney's motives were for visiting the family so much Perhaps if this book had been a full length novel Ophelia's character could have been fully exploredI received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

    A enjoyable read A slow sweet romance Not a lot of meat so to say but a romance that would be touching in heart and soul The pace while slow is steady I would for my own preference like to have a little action however I enjoyed the story I loved the characters and the depth of heart the story showed A family that is understanding and compassionate as well as wise and funny A heroine that is a little clueless about feelings but wise in life A hero that is shy but steadfast A captivating enjoyable sweet romance A good read I was given this book in return for a honest review Anna

    Ophelia Elliot is trying to decide who to marry and enlists the help of Sidney Mason the one person who she does love to help her make this decision Sidney is also in love with Ophelia and has been waiting patiently for her to realise that she loves him in return The dialogue was lovely but at times I hoped for romance Ms Miles has done a wonderful job of bringing the two characters to life in this novella; however I thought Sidney and Ophelia’s story was worth greater development Both characters were delightful; Sidney was warm and patient with Ophelia who was so oblivious to Sidney’s obvious flirtingI received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
