A stately home in the English countryside seems the ideal place for an American tech billionaire and his bride to tie the knot. Until the Internet fails. And the oven breaks. And paparazzi invade. And police crash the bachelorette party. And four unlikely couples discover that passion never waits for perfection, and happily ever after is just an "I do" away.

I won an ARC of this book and it is wonderful! I do not write plot spoilers. I will say that each of the authors have done a great job taking individual love stories and combining them into one book. I normally do not read contemporary romance, but these are some of my favorite historical romance authors. Especially Katharine Ashe and Caroline Linden. I like all 4 authors and you will not be sorry if you buy this book!
What happens when 4 superstars of Regency romance get together again and write contemporary? Magic! Maya the Magnificent concludes her Bad Boy Billionaire series with Jane and Duke’s wedding, at last! And lo and behold, Miranda Neville, Caroline Linden, and Katharine Ashe are totally up to Maya’s Standards! Those ladies shine at historical romance and they’re as brilliant at contemporary! Even if you don’t know Jane and Duke, you will love this book: you have all the love and shenanigans you would expect when the Bad Boy Billionaire gets hitched! It’s funny, sexy, superbly written of course. And Queen Katharine’s novella even holds a surprise! But you have to read it to see what it will be! Enjoy!
I’ve received an eARC at no cost to the authors. It’s been a while since I’ve read contemporary romances, so I was a bit afraid of how this was going to go. But in the end, I had no reason to be afraid. The titles of each novella were so funny that I couldn’t help but giggle and imagine how much fun I would have while reading them. Out of the four authors, I had already read two of them: Caroline Linden and Katharine Ashe. The other two are authors I have been meaning to read but hadn’t had the chance yet – what a great way to start my love for their books! I really liked how everything fitted together, how the wedding of Duke and Jane was kept together by everyone, not just being the line tying every story but actively being a part of each novella and its characters. The first one was my least favourite story (maybe a 3/3.5 stars?), but the rest were all strong 4 star stories. All had delectable characters, a touch of true love and happy endings, some with a bit of trouble in the middle, others just fitting together almost perfectly. Just what I needed and was promised by this anthology. It was very enjoyable and entertaining and I laughed out loud several times, and felt emotionally connected to the characters which made me love the book even more. I recommend it to all the fans of happy endings and especially to those incurable romantics, like me.
Ah! What a nice end by 4 authors to Maya Rodale’s “The Bad Boy Billionaire”! This anthology begins where the Maya Rodale’s trilogy “The Bad Boy Billionaire” with Jane and Duke Austen ended. Ah, I love it when there are no more loose ends. I really like the fact that the stories were intertwined. The way the authors connected to the other stories, made it so much richer. It reads as a book. Through the 4 stories we get a view of Jane and Duke’s wedding preparations and wedding. In the prologue we read that a new wedding location has to be found because Kingstag Castle ( the castle in the anthology “At the duke’s wedding!!!) burned down. Finally they find another venue: Brampton castle. The first story by Mirande Neville is the one where Arwen, a professional wedding planner, get her HEA with her own lord, Harry, even after all the problems they faced trying to organise the wedding of the century. Can you image planning a wedding for a tech billionaire and there’s being no wifi …. In the second story by Caroline Linden, we meet a friend of the groom. Archer is a lawyer in need of Wifi and stumbles across Nathalie, who was looking for some peace and quiet to write her cookbook. And yes, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach…. Can you imagine planning a wedding with a broken refrigerator filled with weddingcakes.. The third story by Katharine Ashe is a sweet cinderella love story about Cali, a librarian and Piers, a corporate billionaire. She’s such a shy, sweet and social person, while he’s a company shark with a heart . But when he looks at her, he wants soo much more. If only…. The last story by Maya Rodale is about Roxanne, Jane’s roommate and her wedding date, Damien Knightly. Damien did a stupid thing, he made a wager that he would be the first to publish pictures of this exclusive wedding but unfortunately his star reporter Roxanne is also Jane’s maid of honour and refuses to help him out. In the end everything works out fine…. There was also a nice reference to the book “Seducing Mr. Knightly” from another serie “Writing girls” by Maya Rodale which features one of Damien’s ancestors and his newspaper “The London Weekly” A really nice touch at the end was the epilogue with the letters Jane and Duke write to some of the guests. You have to read the one she send to Harry. I’m more of a historical romance reader but if you are looking for some fun contemporary romance, this is it! I received an arc for an honest review
Great linked strories around a weeding Loved it
I want to go to this wedding! I loved reading these four novellas that all revolve around the wedding of Jane Sparks and Duke Austen from Maya Rodale's 'Bad Boys & Wallflowers' series. I've read all the books in the series, but I don't think you need to for this to make sense. This anthology can stand alone and be enjoyed as is.
