From the New York Times bestselling author of With This Ring comes a Wicked Worthington novel of love that defies reason...
Intelligent and driven, Orion Worthington aspired to be like his mentor, the acclaimed scientist Sir Geoffrey Blayne. Logically, Sir Geoffrey’s daughter would be Orion’s perfect match. So why can’t he keep his mind off the unruly girl who works in Sir Geoffrey’s lab?
Orphaned fire-cracker Francesca Penrose hopes that London is modern enough to accept her brilliant mind despite her womanhood. But she can’t help noticing Orion’s mind...or his body.
So they decide to run an experiment: if they give in to their passions, their attraction will simply fizzle out, with no impact on their hearts...right?
So What Did I Think Of I Thee Wed by Celeste Bradley?
Francesca and Orion had an opposites attract relationship that grew and developed and had me very interested in seeing how things would go on between them. There was good buildup of the romance, Orion and Francesca had a very interesting relationship with strong chemistry and bond. Though the development of it was a bit long for me.
The main characters were great, unique and quirky. It was fun watching them interact with each other and see their feelings grow into a sizzling romance. The secondary characters were just as great, especially Orion’s wild and crazy family that brought much life and interest to the story. I loved how both smart men and women scientists were showcased in a time when women opinions and views weren’t really valued.
The writing style was good with more descriptions than action, as well as nice drama with the secrets and subterfuge that Orion and Francesca had to deal with. It was great how strong and independent and free thinking most of the women characters were given the time and society’s views on how women should act. They stood up and did things for themselves, not letting society dictate what they should do. Overall I enjoyed reading I Thee Wed by Celeste Bradley with Francesca and Orion’s journey of finding themselves and love.
