Rogue Steals a Bride

The Rogue Steals a Bride - Amelia Grey I was given this to read from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have to say, I love, love, loved Matson & Sophia, the attraction between them was evidentbfrom their first meeting when an orphan boy stole her reticule with her late mothers treasured brooch & Matsons knife. Sophia vowed to her father on his deathbed that she would marry a man with a tittle, which did not seem a problem...until she met Matson Brentwood. Matson & his twin brother Icerson had just returned to London after years in America, upon their return rumors began to pop up that they were the children of Sir Randolph & an affair he had with their mother. Matson vowed not to allow Sir Randolph to be a part of his life...until he learned the woman he desired most, Sophia, was Sir Randolphs ward. Passion ignites between Matson & Sophia but her twin aunts, Mae & June are there to ensure she fulfills her vow. Sophia refuses to go back on her vow, even when Matson says he will go back on his, a devestating revelation the causes Matson to make the decision to return to America rather than watch the woman he loves with someone else.Amelia Grey writes a wonderful story of love that seems unattainable and how a promise made does not always have to be a promise kept and that forgiving oneself can be a better way of keeping a vow made under mitigating circumstances. There are five other books before this in this series, I have them on my to be read list now.
