The hero of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' latest CALL ME IRRESISTIBLE was left at the altar.

As does the hero in Elizabeth Hoyt's To Seduce a Sinner.

I thought one of Jennifer Ashley's heroine got dumped but that's the upcoming The Seduction of Elliot McBride.

The heroine of A Summer to Remember gets dumped in the previous book (actually, not dumped, but the groom's wife shows up).

In Meredith Duran's Wicked Becomes You the heroine has been left at the altar twice. It's a late Victorian historical.

It's not recent, so you may have read it way back when, but just in case you didn't - Justine Davis had a book called 'Left at the Altar'

Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson starts with the bride running away from her wedding. It's just been released as an ebook. I remember it as a favorite and I hope it holds up on a reread.

That book is One Night for Love. I didn't like it nearly as much as I liked ASTR, but I was glad I read it because it gave me a much better sense of Lauren and her background.

You know what's funny? I've never read ANtR because I found ONfL first, and hated Lauren so much, I didn't care about her getting a HEA.

I know, it doesn't get mentioned as often as ASTR.

I liked it well enough but was surprised to see Lauren as a heroine as she didn't seem very nice (albeit understandably so).

See, I read AStR first and still haven't read ONFL because I'm still bitter on Lauren's behalf. So, I guess it depends on which one you read first!

I think you're right--I read ASTR first, and never was able to do more than skim ONFL. I couldn't even tell you why. And I'm a Mary Balogh addict. Smile

A Summer to Remember by Mary Balogh is the follow-up story with the heroine dealing with having been dumped at the alter.
