    A dark Cinderella tale

    Can an already betrothed woman alter the course of her life when she finally meets the one person meant for her. « It is my wish that Eleanor, having been deprived of a mother from birth, will be surrounded by family who will love and cherish her. Family is everything. » This began this moving and breathtaking tale. Except Eleanor didn’t understood the real meaning of it until the far end. This is my first read by Mrs Karen Ranney, so I had no idea of what to expect. With its slow start, I at a time wondered if I will be able to enter in the plot, near 1/3 in the story and they have only meet twice, then they go back to London and the narrative progressed a bit faster and the final gallop. Once they meet again, it became impossible to put this book down. Eleanor is dual, the free one in Scotland then her London version, a doormat for her excuse of a family. For years she has has become a shadow in her family’s home, a commodity always overlooked, expected to be lenient, unseen and unheard. And she acts this way, following others’ orders. Always the dutiful and obedient parent. I thought her weak and meek at first, bending to everyone’s demands. Which she was. It took time for her to find her voice and be able to stand on her own two feet, and even then, she was thrown in her face, she was an ungrateful relative. She goes on with things in her life because of the motto “Family is everything.” but this family is nothing to her. They only take and give nothing. Why she misunderstood the real meaning of her father’s words, those people are no family to her only envious carpetbaggers. At the beginning, I do wondered why she accepted her fiancé’s suit when he rejects everything she is. Then I saw her London self, a masquerade of her true self, able to grovel for just breathing. Logan McKnight wears his name like a glove. He is chivalrous, ready to rescue Eleanor but he knows it is to her to make the right decision. He is a man from my heart, he was attracted to her from the beginning, his honor commanded he gave her up, but his heart has another mind. He is honest to the fault, fighting his own feelings because he knows nothing can come from it. Still, each time she needs him, he is there for her. He is the one whom will help her to go out of her own gilded cage. « Reveal yourself, Eleanor. Show the world who you are. Don’t hide yourself from anyone, however much you might fear their words. » Despite being a story told from both perspectives, it is mostly from Eleanor’s side we follow their journey. So it is her struggles that are more developed, which makes more sense as she is the one who must decide on which path she wants to walk or not. Logan has no doubt, he knows with whom he wants to grew old. I would not really categorize this story as an enemies to lovers story, Eleanor is the one who has her ego tweaked, but he piqued her interest too, so soon she sees Logan as an ally. My only regret is the lack of epilogue as I would have loved to see her dismissive family gets its right reward, after, it would not have changed the outcome of the story. 5 stars I was granted an advance copy through Edelweiss by the publisher Avon. I have also preordered my own copy. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.

    Intriguing Friends to Lovers story

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. To Bed the Bride is the third book in Karen Ranney’s delightful All For Love series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I highly recommend the other books in the series, To Love a Duchess and To Wed an Heiress. Before he died leaving her in the care of his brother Eleanor Craig’s father impressed upon her two things, first that family is everything and that she was to care for the family estate Hearthmere which has been the Craig family home for more than four hundred years. The death of her Uncle has lead Eleanor and her Aunt and cousins to move to London and her trips to Hearthmere are becoming rare especially now that she has become engaged to the Earl of Wescott. She meets Logan McKnight while out on a ride and thinks he is a shepherd and a quite annoying one at that especially when he gives her a puppy which she is sure is the last thing she wants or needs. Once back in London they meet again and she discovers that Logan is an up and coming member of parliament when he attends a dinner party at the home of her Aunt’s new husband a wealthy businessman. As Eleanor begins to learn that her Aunt doesn’t have the same feelings about family and that her fiancé is not who she thought he was Logan becomes a true friend when she desperately needs one. An intriguing friends to lovers story with some truly nasty villains I enjoyed reading this book immensely. Medium Steam.
