Review: Charming Ophelia by Rachael Miles


Print Length: 
Publisher: Zebra (May 30, 2017)

From Goodreads.com: 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 . . .

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

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 more 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.
