Review: The Promise by Lauren Hunter

The Promise by Lauren Hunter. I must say it has been awhile since a historical romance has caught my attention!  I read this book very quickly.  I loved the banter between the Duke and Lady Elizabeth and I loved the concept:  True Soul mates exist and not even death can separate them.

I love historical romance, but a lot of modern ones have left me disappointed due to the lack of research with their time period; however, Lauren Hunter's writing shows she took the time to make it accurate and believable for the time period she has written about and to me that is one of the most important aspects of historical fiction of any kind.

There is a lot of back and forth between the Duke and Lady Elizabeth and even though Lady Elizabeth tries to rebuke the Duke, he is determined to win her.  This all leads to a plot twist that I didn't see coming!  If you are a fan of historical romance, this book is for you!  A very solid 5!

Goodreads Synopsis
 Unable to prevent his first love, the Lady Marianne, from being struck down by a carriage in a London street, Anthony Thornhill, heir to the Duke of Albourne, watches her die in his arms. 
Believing her lost to him forever, he tries to forget her through an endless line of ladies, his rakish ways leaving him empty and wanting. That is until he literally bumps into the Lady Elizabeth, his curiosity aroused. Drawn to her, because she reminds him of a loss he will never regain, he comes to realize she just may be the Lady Marianne, fulfilling a promise of a dance that never was. His only problem…she does not remember him. 
Can he bring her memories forth, allowing her to see him as she did then? To know him once more and reclaim the love for him she once had? Or will she be lost to him forever?
