WHAT THE BRIDE WORE by Jade Lee is an exciting,fast paced Regency Historical Romance. #3 in the “Bridal Favors”,but can be read as a stand alone. This is the story of Grant Benton, Earl of Crowle, the oldest brother to William Benton,from “Winning a Bride”. Filled with secrets, misunderstandings,passion,restoring a families fortune,and the power of love. When Grant meets Lady Irene Knopp,he finds himself and his home is with her. Lady Irene Knopp loves her work as a dressmaker buyer,with her friends,who own a dressmaker shop,dressing the beauties of society. While Grant, has made a fortune as a mill owner, he also loves to design fabric. Unfortunately, he has worked for years to regain the money to purchase his family’s estate back,which he learns he is unable too. His brother has it now. He has had no contact with his family for years,because of his disgrace and embarrassment over working in trade. A haunting tale of overcoming your past to make a future,and finding true love at last. With sensuality, a swift-moving plot and engaging characters you can not go wrong. But do be warned both Lady Irene and Grant are stubborn,charismatic,and determined to have their way. Loved this story! Once again Jade Lee has created a story with realistic characters, realistic circumstances and passionate desires. If you enjoy historical romance, the desire for more, passion and just a plain great read than you don’t want to miss picking up “What the Bride Wore”. Ms. Lee is a wonderful storyteller. I can not wait to see what she has in store for her readers next. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Grant Benton, Earl of Crowle has been forced to work for the last five years as a mill owner. He finds this embarrassing so he uses his first name to disguise his business connections. Lady Irene Knopp is the buyer for a dress shop she runs with her friends and meets "Mr. Grant" to negotiate purchasing fabric from his mill. There is an immediate attraction and the two begin a romance. This story had it all, troubled hero, beautiful, brave heroine and frightening villain. The book is long at just under four hundred pages but time seemed to fly by as Ms. Lee is able to pull a reader into her imaginary world and not let go until the last page.

The author did a good job of mixing the courtship and propriety of the time period with the hidden and heated passion we all love. I came to care about Irene and Grant and looked forward to their working through all obstacles and dangers. Which they did in grand fashion. A nicely written and pleasant historical romance with enough intrigue to keep you guessing and turning the pages. And with the hints on the last few pages, I will be sure to keep my eyes open for the next book. ***ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have read a few of this authors books now, and liked all of them. I was disappointed by this book. The characters are very likable but aggravating. Ok chemistry. Not much to the storyline. I'll try another and hope for better.

There were times in reading What the Bride Wore I wanted to tell Grant Benton, Earl of Crowle to get over himself, he wasn't the only aristocrat to find himself working to restore the family fortune. But I liked Irene's need for something in her life to give it meaning and her refusal to feel sorry about working in what was considered a mans job. In all I think Jade Lee has written another winner and I can't wait for Wendy's book.
