Review

Praise for New York Times bestselling author
CELESTE BRADLEY
and her previous novels and series

ROGUE IN MY ARMS

“Bradley doesn’t disappoint with the second in her Runaway Brides trilogy, which is certain to have readers laughing and crying. Her characters leap off the page, especially little year-old Melody, the precocious ‘heroine,’ and her three fathers. There’s passion, adventure, nonstop action, and secrets that make the pages fly by.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

“When it comes to crafting fairy tale–like, wonderfully escapist historicals, Bradley is unrivaled, and the second addition to her Runaway Brides trilogy cleverly blends madcap adventure and sexy romance.”—Booklist

DEVIL IN MY BED

“From its unconventional prologue to its superb conclusion, every page of the first in Bradley’s Runaway Brides series is perfection and joy. Tinged with humor that never overshadows the poignancy and peopled with remarkable characters (especially the precocious Melody) who will steal your heart, this one’s a keeper.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

“Part romantic comedy, part romantic suspense, and wholly entertaining, Devil in My Bed is a delight!”—Romance Reviews Today

“Laughter, tears, drama, suspense, and a heartily deserved happily-ever-after.” —All About Romance

DUKE MOST WANTED

“Passionate and utterly memorable. Witty dialogue and fantastic imagery round out a novel that is a must have for any Celeste Bradley fan.”—Romance Junkies

“A marvelous, delightful, emotional conclusion to Bradley’s trilogy. Readers have been eagerly waiting to see what happens next, and they’ve also been anticipating a nonstop, beautifully crafted story, which Bradley delivers in spades.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

From the Back Cover

Destined for spinsterhood, Isadora “Izzy” Temple can only dream of finding a husband—of feeling his touch in the dark, his lips on her neck, his passion building with each kiss. Imagine her surprise when she awakens to find she’s not dreaming at all! Lord Julien Blackworth, has mistaken Izzy’s room for his—and he’s fallen into her bed and into her wildest dreams…

 

INTO HIS ARMS

When the household discovers a man in her boudoir, Izzy pretends that Julien is her fiancé . Once he spends time playing the part, Julien finds himself falling for the fiesty beauty. But how can Izzy trust that this notorious rake’s feelings are for real—and that she won’t end up being branded a “fallen” woman?     

 

“Delightful, emotional…Bradley delivers.”

More About the Author

Hi, my name is Celeste Bradley and I write "brain chocolate." That is, I write fun and sexy escapism is for hardworking women everywhere. We deserve a little man-candy, too!

Reviewers like to say I write about misfit heroines getting the man of their dreams. Maybe that's true, but don't we all feel like misfits sometimes? Even if the rest of the world thinks we have all our balls in the air, aren't we juggling like mad on the inside, desperately trying not to drop one?

I'm the kind of woman who never truly has a clean house (not all at once!), who can't seem to have Christmas projects finished by Dec 25, who is stunned by how fast weeds can take over a perfectly well-behaved garden, who is mystified by high-altitude baking rules, who doesn't quite get the kids to the dentist appointment on time...well, you get the picture. Rather than having all my ducklings in a row, I just try to make sure none of the rotten little rebels are playing in the middle of the street!

I love this manic, scattered life I lead. I love to write, craft, garden, bake and mother, even if I don't always do it all perfectly. I love living in the Southwest, with its big sky and vast desert views. I love venturing out of my quiet life to meet readers and other writers, and then I love to come back to my haven, full of ideas and renewed passion and creativity.

Maybe one of those times I'll meet you!

Hugs,
and thanks for reading!

Celeste

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Setting - England, 1831--- Izzy Temple is a rather non-descript and plain young woman who has convinced herself that she would never marry. After all she knew was very plain, but she was intelligent and she had a dream. Of course, her dream was not like the one she was experiencing at the moment with someone nibbling at her neck, caressing her body, and causing all kinds of delightful feelings in the pit of her stomach - but wait a minute, this was no dream! Screaming out and reaching for a candelabrum next to her bed she had just knocked her assailant senseless as the door to her bedchamber was thrown open. Several people came running to her aid. Among them was the fantastically beautiful Lady Claire Bottomly, whose horrifying expression of shock and embarrassment made Izzy realize in an instant that Eppingham, Julian Rowley had mistaken her room for his assignation with the much more desirable Lady Claire. As Julian's father came through the door expressing his disgust with his son, Izzy made the split second decision to protect both Julian and Lady Clair by claiming a lover's quarrel rather than everyone's assumption that he was raping her. Actually, fessing up as being ruined would solve a big problem for her. As the days progressed Izzy was quite pleased with herself that she was to be labeled a `fallen' woman - this way she could set up her own household living alone as an `independent' woman until she would eventually leave England for America!
Unfortunately, Julian in trying to accommodate his father's wishes (and believe me his father ends up being a real beastly, unloving, horrid father) agrees to marry the plain little spinster or he would be disinherited.

I loved this book! Lately I've been having a problem getting through even my favorite authors books, but I read "Fallen" in one sitting.
"Fallen" is the basic Cinderella story, with a kick butt heroine and a fully fleshed hero. Izzy Temple and Lord Eppingham, Julian Rowley, are caught in a compromising situation when he wakes her from what she thinks is an erotic dream with a kiss to die for. After she catches her breath and realizes that she isn't dreaming, Izzy picks up a candlestick, conks Julian over the head and screams down the house. She is ruined and Julian is saved from being disowned by Izzy's perception and giving personality.
When Julian later goes to offer for Izzy, out of duty, her great spirit and fabulous sense of humor unexpectedly captivate Julian. Izzy is a truly likeable character and Julian a romantic hero. This is a fun, fast, summer read, from a fantastic new author

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Julian should really stop drinking. He had a bit too much one night and ends up in Izzy's bed, instead of across the hall in the bed of the lovely Lady Celia. She wakes up to find a strange man in her bed, conks him on the head with a candle stick and screams. The only way out of the situation is a marriage of convenience, but since Izzy doesn't want to get married they settle for an engagement of convenience.

Izzy is one of those perky, innocent, ball of light type heroines, and I have to say I have a soft spot for these kind of ladies, being they always get paired with those sexy dark brooding heroes. But in this case Julian was a bit of a disappointment. He refuses to think that he has anything special with Izzy and the best way to prove that is with other women. The author describes in quite a bit of detail as he tries to "prove to himself" that Izzy means nothing with other women. The first other woman is his mistress, whom he is fooling around with while she is naked and saying hello to his manly bits. The next woman he is kissing/grouping/planing to have sex with while Izzy is in the same room and he is behind some curtains. The next woman is after they are married and they fool around in a bar before he decides to leave, this happens after he admits to himself that he loves her. Then in the very end he tells here there has been no one else since they first kissed . . . I guess by no one else he means sex and not women because there were plenty of those, enough to call the guy a cheater. It just annoys me that the author is not willing to make him go through with it, being then he would be beyond redemption of the reader and yet he keeps on doing it and acts like it means nothing. So it is supposed to be repugnant, but just not too repugnant.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This really was a great book and the only reason why I did not give it 5 stars is because the author got a little too lengthy with the "married in name only" scenario. It just took a little too long for Julian and Izzy to make amends which made the "romance" fall short. The characters got along so well before actually being forced to get married (because of her impending pregnancy) that it was disappointing to see them apart for so long.
Lord Eppingham (Julian) Rowley, spare son of the Duke and Isadora (Izzy) Temple are definitely not on the same "society" level. She is living with her wicked, jealous aunt after losing her parents at sea and has been made to earn her keep by sleeping in an unheated room, being governess, cook, gardener, maid, etc.
Izzy may have not been beautiful according to "society standards" but she was no push over and she did not want to marry Julian and become his property. I felt so sorry for her because she sacrificed much for a rake who would never love her and compromised her reputation by stumbling into her bedroom for a fling when he was supposed to be in Lady Bottomly's. Izzy has a great personality and very quickly sees this mistake as an opportunity to be free of her hateful aunt/cousins, get her inheritance and head to America. She talks Julian into a "pretend" betrothal and becomes a friend to several of the ladies of the ton, including Lady Bottomly.
Julian was determined to marry her and though tempted remained faithful to her, but he thinks love is just a word. Once the pighead stops drinking long enough to finally come to the realization that he is in love with Izzy, he's determined to make her fall in love with him and out of love with his best friend. But is he too late and/or has Izzy fallen for another?
