Catherine and Thomas became fast friends when they met formally at a ball put on by their friends. Having known each other by name only, the two friends met in secret for fear of their fathers' wraths. The Shawcross and Ambrose were bitter enemies, sworn to remain the most hated of enemies throughout generations. So hated in fact, they none of the family members are allowed to be within the same room with each other. Well, that little hindrance did not deter Lady Catherine and Thomas to have an instant connection with each other. They met in secrecy because of some unknown force that seems to draw them together. However, it was also that indeterminable force that separated them to be forever parted from each other.
As strange as the feud had been, the story took on a sort of Romeo and Juliet persona. Two star-crossed lovers who held each other's hearts in their minds and hands and could never forget each other, even if they were thousands of miles apart. Catherine thought of her Thomas every day as did Thomas with Catherine. But there was also a deep secret that Catherine had to keep from Thomas.
As the years went by, Catherine was quite content to live with her aunt (from her father's side). Relieved and so happy to finally be accepted and feel true love and care from an estranged family, Catherine lived her life with her aunt and uncle and a young boy. But her heart and mind constantly thought of Thomas as well as her dear brother, the future Earl of Barford.
As circumstances came into view, Catherine and Thomas once again reunited with but the hindrance of the Duke of Shawcross in the way this time. The long lost lovers and friends realized that they could never truly let each other go in their hearts, mind, and body.
What really drew me into this story was the heartbreak that poor Catherine felt and had to endure when she was so cruelly thrown away by her father, the Earl. He was a cruel and heartless man, letting a dumb feud that wasn't even his to begin with dominate his decision to throw his own daughter out. Well, unfortunately the Earl didn't live long enough to repent his ways but the Duke finally did. I was so happy to see that the Duke realized his hatred towards the Ambrose family was unjust and spent the remainder of his years patching up the heartache he caused his son, Thomas and Catherine.
There is a sweet and intelligent little boy in the story, as well as endearing aunt and uncles, a courageous and loving brother, and some kind friends. I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Soulmate for the Heartbroken Duke and as with Ms. Barton's stories, you are instantly thrown into the minds and lives of the characters.
Thank you for the ARC!
Catherine meets her aunt and her uncle and finds a loving home. She is able to let go of the titles and pretenses that she has to hold on to in her father's home. Soon Catherine's family proves to her just how much they care for her.
Years later when Catherine returns home she sees Thomas again. Circumstances have changed and he is engaged to be married but Catherine has a secret that could change things between them.
The book is well written and heart wrenching in some spots but also very gratifying in others.

This book had a great storyline with plenty of twists and turns and some amazing characters. At times it seemed to skip huge chunks of time,one minute you're in the here and now and then it fast forwards 8 years. The other thing that was slightly off putting is that you'd be up to speed on the story then it would suddenly go back in time.
A great book and well worth reading.
its a great story line between two familys that as heart breaking consequences for others and how it evolves to a great finish.so I can recommend you ladys to give this a try as I am sure you will enjoy it just like I have.
