WINNING A BRIDE by Jade Lee is an exciting novella Regency Historical Romance. #2.5 "Bridal Favors" series. A quick fast paced novella. Filled with passion and a yearning for more. The tale of two brothers,William and Grant Benton. A tale of love against all odds. Well written with engaging, and charismatic characters and an intriguing plot. A must read! It is fast moving from beginning to end. I can hardly wait to read "What the Bride Wore" which is next in the tale of two brothers. Loved it! Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.

This was a charming, sexy delight of a novella! Jade Lee has penned a romance that was heartfelt and fun to read. William Benton has become the steward to his families land after it was lost due to his fathers mistakes and it is hard for Will, at times, to let the past go. He wants his families land back but knows his elder brother has no means to purchase it back so he comes up with a new idea...wed the new owners daughter, Josephine. A woman whom he thinks to be a bit haughty and out of his reach. Yet during some nightly interludes he comes to find that Jo is kind, generous and a lady worth fighting for. A lady worth more than some land. He just needs to convince her and her father of this fact. Jo is the perfect woman to help him realize that there is more to life than titles and land and find his true worth. She is a bit wild and unpredictable and finds herself going a bit mad from the pressure of her life, from the man he father has arranged to marry her to finding the calm she needs to have in Will. Filled with heat, banter, emotion and an interesting look at some history of the canals and how they are built, this romance is sure to make you grab more by Jade Lee. 4 stars

Due to his aristocratic family’s downfall, William Benton serves as steward on the land his brother should have inherited. His one weakness is for the daughter of the new owner. Josephine Lawton is beautiful, charming, and enamored of titles and all things aristocratic. So when she becomes engaged to a man he knows to be a wastrel and a fool, Will puts all his passion into restoring his family’s honor and winning the woman he loves. It’s going to be a hot summer on the estate.
I really enjoyed this novel. I liked that during a time when women had few freedoms, Jo did what she wanted anyway (sneaking out to the lake). Jo and Will both had feelings for each other but because of their stations in life, they hid it by acting like they hated each other. I liked Will's rival Alastair and hope to see him in a future novel.
