I Thee Wed

I Thee Wed is the fourth book in Celeste Bradley’s The Wicked Worthington series.  I have not read any of the previous novels in this series and was able to follow along fairly well as the characters were introduced.  While it is not necessary to have read the earlier stories to understand this ...

With This Ring

With This Ring is the third in a series of books about the oddball collection of Worthington siblings. The focus here is nineteen year-old Elektra, who is determined to repair the family fortune by making a hugely advantageous marriage which will also serve to wipe some of the Worthingtons’ more o ...

And Then Comes Marriage

From some of the reviews I have read about this book on Amazon and other sites, I may get a little flack for mine here at All About Romance. I liked this book. I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting. There are a few problems with the book, but they were minor and not enough to interfere ...

When She Said I Do

I'm a sucker for a good Beauty and the Beast story and with that in mind, I picked up When She Said I Do. This does in fact fit the fairytale archetype to an extent, but I can't call it the great read I was hoping for. Following a carriage accident, Calliope (Callie) Worthington a ...

The best books combine humor and depth to create an entertaining and engaging story. Rogue In My Arms by Celeste Bradley tries to do this, but instead of merging flawlessly, the two tones butt against each other awkwardly to create an uneven storytelling. When Melody, a precocious ...

Devil in My Bed

It's been a long, long time since I read a romance novel that sought to provide laughter, tears, drama, suspense, and a heartily deserved happily-ever-after – and succeeded on all accounts. Golly, this is a fun book. Three years ago Aidan de Quincy and Madeleine Chandler fell in love and had an ...

Duke Most Wanted

Duke Most Wanted was a pleasant surprise. I've only read one other book by Celeste Bradley, and it was notable for its jerk hero whose one interesting quality was a larger than life penis. This book, on the other hand, was a fun read in the light and funny vein. It's neither serious nor particularly ...

The Duke Next Door

The Duke Next Door features one of the most infuriating heroes I’ve ever come across. That’s also not to say I disliked the book - or the hero, really. To tell you the truth, I quite liked him. Calder Marbrook, the Marquis of Brookhaven, was just left at the alter. His first ...

Desperately Seeking a Duke

You know, these tortured premises for European Historicals that are part of a series are getting ever more…well, tortured. Consider this one: A self-made man with a distaste for lazy, foppish aristocrats leaves a will decreeing that the first of the young women in his family to marry a duke will ...
