The Persistent Suitor by Rachel McNeely is a wonderful historical romance. Ms. McNeely has penned a well-written book and loaded it with fantastic characters. Juliana is crushed when the man she grew up with and loved becomes engaged to her cousin. Grayson helps her out of a few spots of emotional overload. Their story is full of drama, humor and spice. I enjoyed reading The Persistent Suitor and look forward to reading more from Rachel McNeely in the future. The Persistent Suitor is part of the Eligible Lords for Proper Ladies Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
