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.
About the Author
Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. People in stories did amazing things and she was too shy to do anything amazing. Years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy, however, not only fueled her imagination but proved she wasn't that shy after all.
Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas.

I am always looking for a new historical romance author and I loved the plot line with a puppy. I liked Eleanor and Logan. I liked how loyal she was to her family home. I liked how much he liked her intelligence. Together they had some great conversations. Her family and fiancé were all crap and the dog was absolutely the best part. Plot wise it was okay. There’s more inner monologue than I would have liked and loads of telling, not showing. I didn’t quite get the leap from friendship to lust to love. After all of the imprisonment, browbeating, and starvation, I wanted more of a punishment for her family. And while the HEA was great, I still wanted even more from the ending. Overall, it was the characters that kept me reading. I am mildly intrigued to see who the previous stories were about and may go back to read them. **Huge thanks to Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge**
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.
