Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I read The Cad, I was bowled over by the depth of the characters created by Edith Layton. The story itself was complex and well constructed. As I closed the book, I wondered at the fate of Gilly and Bridget. Now, in The Choice we know.
The erstwhile street urchin has made good and become a feisty lady. Who better to pursue her than Damon Ryder, the Season's most eligible bachelor? But there are two other suitors hovering in the wings. Who will Gilly choose? Will her past get in the way of true love?
Edith Layton in the tradition of classic regency romance writers such as Georgette Heyer has succeeded where others have failed, in producing a sequel that stands on its own merit. Again the characters are well drawn, and given during the course of the book space to develop and reveal the many facets that make a person whole. These are definitely no cardboard cutouts, but characters that you can identify with. A spellbinding story.
Well done. I can't wait to read her next book!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The youngest son of a powerful nobleman, his parents and siblings pampered Damon Ryder until one day he decided to prove to himself he can succeed without any help. He journeyed to America where he made a fortune as a businessman. After two years overseas, Damon returns home, seeking a spouse and ultimately a family.
At a ball, he observes Gillian Giles beat up notorious rake Lord Dearborne in the nearby gardens. Dearborne claims to his peers that he interceded when Damon made illicit advances on Gilly, a ward of the dangerous Viscount Sinclair. Damon protects Gilly's protection by claiming to be her fiancé. As he escorts Gilly about the town, he falls in love. However, Gilly believes that her common blood is not good enough for an aristocrat. Another problem is that she still loves somebody else.
Regency fans that choose an Edith Layton novel know they are in for an entertaining tale. Ms. Layton's latest novel THE CHOICE is a wonderful sequel to the poignant THE CAD. The story line is intriguing as Gilly represents a different type of lady then normally graces a historical romance. Damon is a warm hunk, who will garner much accolades and wishful desires by readers. Ms. Layton scores big time with a winning novel.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I began this series, I meant to read the books in order, but somewhere along the way, I just read them and decided to wait on writing the reviews until I was all finished. This book is the second one with "The Cad," being the first one. In the first book, Ewen Sinclair and his wife, Bridget took two young sisters, Gillie and Betsy, into their home, fresh off the streets of London. Gillie had been responsible for her little sister, Betsy, since their mother passed when Gillie was 8 years old, passing for a young lad in order to stave off sexual advances from men.

Gillie is now all grown up and she's has the distinction of being known as the ward of the wealthy Ewen Sinclair and the toast of the London Season. But... since she doesn't have a family and nobody really knows about her past, Gillie knows she has no hopes of marrying well. Nevertheless, she's a beautiful, feisty little gal who occasionally slips into street cant and who can fight like the devil's business if anyone tries to harm her. Because she lived as a male for several years, she has the uncanny ability to become one of the guys in a remarkable manner, especially considering she's grown into a sweet armful of femininity.

Into this world, our hero, Damon Ryder, returns from America. He's the younger son of a large family who's always had everything handed to him on a silver platter. Because of this, he decided to travel far away and become his own man so to speak. He's now returned home after being away for several years and stops in London to rest up a bit before traveling on to his family's home. He can't help but be intrigued by our little Gillie, but has no idea how soon their paths will intersect in a lifechanging manner.

I loved this book... Normally you read stories of headstrong women who are deeply in love and normally with the 'right' man. Here is a story of someone who is still influenced by her girlish dreams and almost chooses the wrong man for her... It keeps you wondering till the very end... I will certainly try to read more books of this author... I do recommend this one..

I enjoyed this book very much - Ms. Layton is an excellent writer and has a knack for creating very human, poignant characters. Damon was wonderful - my only question is where I can find a man just like him!
