She craved his touch—and they had yet to kiss.

Book 5, the final book in the exciting new Soldiers and Soulmates series from bestselling author Alexa Aston, has arrived. A widowed duchess at loose ends, longing for love. A colonel with no family who unexpectedly becomes an earl. Two stubborn individuals who are drawn together by passion—and also find friendship . . .

Dalinda Baker wed the Duke of Gilford after one brief meeting, escaping a cruel, unloving father before he could betroth her to a stranger. The much older duke gives her confidence, stability, and two sons before he dies of a heart attack a dozen years into their marriage. With her young boys away at school, Dalinda is at loose ends and visits her brother, where she meets a sinfully handsome stranger.

Rhys Armistead toils as a working-class groom when he is plucked from obscurity by the Earl of Sheffington, whose sickly son might never live to succeed him. Rhys’ mother is a distant cousin to the earl and Rhys is next in line to become Lord Sheffington if the heir apparent passes. Treating Rhys as a second son, the earl purchases a commission in the army for Rhys, who spends a dozen years fighting on the Continent until he receives word that he has inherited the earldom.

Turning to Dez, his closest friend from the war who recently returned to England when he unexpectedly became an earl, Rhys visits the new Lord Torrington—and is taken with Dez’s twin sister, Dalinda, a vivacious widow. The couple spends one magical night together but Rhys realizes the duchess is far superior to him socially and offers her friendship instead of marriage.

Can Dalinda convince Rhys that they are a perfect match—or will his stubbornness keep them apart forever?

Find the answer in bestselling author Alexa Aston’s fifth book of Soldiers and Soulmates, To Win a Widow. Each book in Soldiers and Soulmates is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Soldiers & Soulmates:
Book #1: To Heal an Earl
Book #2: To Tame a Rogue
Book #3: To Trust a Duke
Book #4: To Save a Love
Book #5: To Win a Widow


Rhys Armitage was a young groom working to hard to send money home to his mother when he gets a surprise that changes everything. It will take many years and a war zone to complete his transformation.
Dalinda Baker tried to help her twin brother elope with the love of his life.  It didn't go to plan and they all got punished.  Years later as a widow with two young sons she gets a chance to start life all over again.  
All the characters have had life experience that has made them the people they are and brought them friends who feel the same way.  Family is a very important part of this story.  
This is part of a great series.  Each book can be read on it's own, but the series should be read in order to avoid spoilers. Our heroine's brother has his own book in the series that would definitely be spoiled if you read this one first.  As the series deals with soldiers there are quite a few emotional scenes and parts of history you may not of thought about before.  
I loved it.

She is the author of The Knights of Honor, a medieval romance series that takes place in 14th century England during the reign of Edward III and centers on the de Montfort family. Each romance focuses on the code of chivalry that bound knights of this era.

A native Texan, Alexa lives with her husband in a Dallas suburb, where she eats her fair share of dark chocolate and plots out stories while she walks every morning. She enjoys reading, watching movies, and can’t get enough of Fixer Upper or Game of Thrones.
