Fresh Fiction Review

To Bed the Bride

Romance Historical

Eleanor Craig does not fit in with her snobby family or her controlling fiancé and longs for more. Logan McKnight is an MP that happens to be the first person to really notice Eleanor in years. To help ease her loneliness, he gives her a puppy and unwittingly gives himself a reason to spend time with her. Unfortunately, this secret time spent together could spell disaster.

I loved Logan in the previous book in the series and greatly enjoyed him in TO BED THE BRIDE. However, I did feel like I got cheated by getting very little of his POV. There would be multiple chapters in a row from Eleanor’s POV before we would come back around to Logan’s. This made me sad because it was a pleasure to read his POV and I needed more!

I liked Scotland Eleanor so much better than London Eleanor. I felt like she lost the snappy personality she’d had in Scotland as soon as she got back to London. There, she was quite content to let her family and fiancé walk all over her. It was frustrating but I feel like she grew from it in the end. Sometimes it made for a slow read since the biggest chunk of the book was from her POV.

Eleanor’s family was, of course, just awful. It was hard reading about her not defending herself against them and allowing them to treat her the way they did. Her fiancé was worse and made me want to shake her so she’d stand up for herself.

I did find the beginning and end more entertaining in the middle. A lot of that was because of Eleanor’s suddenly dull personality as soon as they got back to London. Before I explain the rest, let me just say I LOVE dogs. More than almost anything else, I love dogs. All dogs. I spent a recent trip to Chicago pointing out more dogs than sights. That being said, the plot revolving around Bruce was charming at first but did grate on the nerves in some spots.

Despite a few issues, I found TO BED THE BRIDE to be a thoroughly enjoyable read. Karen Ranney is an automatic read for me and I can’t wait to see what’s next!!

New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Ranney’s captivating series concludes with a tale of opposites whose attraction scorches a trail from the Highlands to the glittering halls of London—and courts scandal at every turn . . .

Politics has introduced MP Logan McKnight to many fascinating people, but the lady he encounters on the lands bordering his ancestral Scottish home outshines them all. Eleanor Craig of Hearthmere seats a Thoroughbred like a queen, knows as much about world events as any of his colleagues—and is engaged to one of the worst men Logan knows. She also seems lonely, so Logan brings her a friend. Thus should their acquaintance end, yet it’s only just begun.

The puppy Logan delivers is every bit as irresistible as the man himself. How could this stranger sense the isolation Eleanor suffers among her scheming, snobbish extended family and fiancé who control her life? It’s even worse in London—until she begins meeting Logan secretly in a secluded park. Their passionate connection frees Eleanor, body and soul. But discovery threatens disgrace—or worse.
