The Forgotten Fiancée is such a lovely, enjoyable read that is perhaps romantic fiction at its best. I will admit that I was most surprised by this book. It's beautifully woven together with spice, sexiness and romance that is going to please all readers and not just those of us that consider ourselves fans of both historical and of romance.
What stands out to me the most about this book, other than the romance, is how well Eaton can tell a story. This book had all the traits that I love most about reading including the fact that at some points it was charming. The fact that Miles, the hero is swoon worthy of course always helps and his character is very hard not to favor despite the fact that he did manage to break Dianna’s, the heroine, heart at the beginning of the book. By the time you reach the end of this book you realize that there is much more to Miles than his handsome looks and all is forgiven.
Dianna is a wonderful heroine as well. She kind of reminded me of myself I think in some ways so that is one of the many reasons I liked her so much. It was obvious that she was torn between her remaining love for Miles and her heartache that she suffered when he left her on their wedding day.
Together both Miles and Dianna are able to overcome the painful memories of the past. The romance blossoms and so does the sensual chemistry. My absolute favorite thing about Eaton I have newly discovered as well as the author herself with this book was how present and strong the chemistry was between Miles and Dianna. The chemistry did not come off as pushy or too much, but instead it had the right amount of teasing so that I wanted to further read the pages of the book to see where the romance might lead.
In this world I think it's so easy not to believe in giving second chances. I think had Dianna been such a character she might not have discovered the true meaning behind Miles's intentions or perhaps even her own happily-ever-after ending. I encourage readers to pick up this book because there are so many delightful traits that are waiting to be enjoyed.
