I don't think I've fallen for Miles, but I do like the books. Not
falling for Miles may be accounted for by the fact that I read
Cordelia's Honour first, and so my heart was already given to Aral. And
Just to throw in my 2 cents, I'd recommend chronological, but not
starting with Shards/Barrayar or _Cordelia's Honor_.
Whereas I am perfectly happy with having started with Cordelia's Honor,
and have enjoyed every book I've read so far. I did read them in
(almost) chronological order, missing out only on Mirror Dance which had
disappeared into a black hole at my brother's house. (Found again, but I
still haven't caught up on Diplomatic Immunity).
