    One thought on “I Thee Wed”

    1. Copy received courtesy of NetGalleyPart of a series, this sexy romance is set in a veneer of Regency London. Readers who know the period might wince at liberties taken with etiquette, custom, and language (view spoiler)[ such as: A duke gives a ball without a hostess, the hero and heroine are on first name basis with a male dress-maker, the heroine wears a gown of gabardine—a canvas-like fabric invented around 1880 for coats and trousers(hide spoiler)] but readers looking for a hero and heroin [...]

    2. Originally reviewed at The Book Adventures.I Thee Wed features a science-minded hero and heroine; however, despite an equal appreciation for scientific investigation, that does not mean that they are perfectly matched. While Orion Worthington is strictly logical when it comes to his experiments, Francesca Penrose embraces the more unexplained side of science. Since Orion has come on board as Francesca’s uncle’s assistant, their difference in opinion naturally leads to some heated confrontati [...]

    3. Orion Worthtington is a serious, organised scientist who aspires to the Fraternity of Life Sciences. When he was offered the opportunity to become the assistant of the eminent Sir Geoffrey Blayne, he jumps on the occasion. Furthermore, Sir Geoffrey has the perfect daughter, Judith, for Orion to advance his career. She is everything his boisterous, nearly scandalous family is not. But when he goes to live in Blayne House, Orion meets Judith’s cousin, the voluptuous Francesca with the slight Ita [...]

    4. So damn cute!The Worthingtons (family of this series) prove to be a fairly amusing and lovably family that is to be read more for entertainment than anything, really. And omg the romance - pulls at my heartstrings so much. An unflappable Orion whose mind speaks in science meets his downfall with a passionate Italian scientist. They're all cutie patooties.

    5. Another fun Worthington tale. Orion is the scientific one in the family. He is logical and has walled off his emotions. He craves the peace and order that is the very opposite of what can be found in his home, among his eccentric family members. So he accepts the invitation of Sir Geoffrey Blayne to become his lab assistant and stay at his home. There is also the possibility of winning the hand of Sir Geoffrey's daughter Judith, as well as gaining entry to the scientific community.Francesca is S [...]

    6. 3.5 I haven't read the previous books in the series, but the prologue and the first chapters give us enough information to make us understand what happened to the other couples before and that it's about an unusual and eccentric family who may be judged by the ton but they found them too entertaining to cast them away from society. Orion Worthington love his family, but his temperament is different from their chaotic, outrageous and unpredictable attitude. He's more the logical and serious type. [...]

    7. “I Thee Wed” by Celeste Bradley is part of the ‘Wicked Worthingtons’ series and centers on Orion Worthington, who finds a mentor to help further his career as a biologist. There are strings attached to his tenure, including the chance to marry the man’s daughter, Julia, but he finds himself far more fascinated by the Francesca Penrose, the man’s niece. Francesca is a scholar herself, but cannot get any academic recognition of her research. Orion has to navigate a minefield of challen [...]

    8. I've read a couple of the other books in "The Wicked Worthington Series," and thought I'd give this one a try.Orion Worthington, a serious scientist, is desperate to get away from his eccentric family, so he leaps at the opportunity to work with the distinguished Sir Geoffrey Blayne. He'll be living with Blayne and will have access to his amazing laboratory for his plant studies. Even better, Blayne's made it clear that he would welcome Orion as a suitor for his beautiful daughter Judith. Howeve [...]

    9. I have not read any of the previous books in the Worthington series, but it was not a problem because although there was some mention of Orion Worthington's siblings, they were not really a part of this story except for his youngest sister, Atalanta. It was refreshing to see that Orion was a serious scientist who has not had many interactions with women beyond the women in his family, instead of a notorious rake. When a rare opportunity presents itself for Orion to become the assistant to the re [...]

    11. I am torn about Celeste Bradley’s new release, I Thee Wed. It’s a cute story of an analytically minded gentleman finding passion in the arms of an intelligent woman, but it falters in its uneven pacing and a sense that the author betrays her smart characters by having them make silly mistakes.Orion Worthington sees himself as nothing like the artistic and emotional members of his family. Where his parents, siblings and cousins are all driven by what their hearts desire, Orion is dedicated to [...]

    12. This was an interesting regency romance with intriguing characters. I liked the story line with the main hero to me is Orion Worthington. He is an intelligent man who looks forward in leaving his family's home to work with a renowned scientist. His family is not really in the ton's sphere but are tolerated anyway. When Orion arrives to do his study with Sir Geoffrey Blayne, he meets the niece who is sharing the space with her own work. Francesca Penrose is from Italy who came to live with her un [...]

    13. I think the Worthingtons are my all time favourite Regency family. And there are at least 5 siblings to come, although the next book seems to be about Bliss, a cousin who just popped up out of nowhere. I would have preferred the next one to be Lysander or Dade but they will probably be saved until the end, or heartbroken Pol. If you haven't read any of this series I heartily recommend them, they are a seriously wacky family.

    14. Received from NetgalleyYet another excellent installment in the series about these wonderfully eccentric and hilarious Worthingtons.

    15. A sweet and scientific romance. Each installment of this series just seems to be getting better.This edition to the series focuses on Orion, the cold and scientific minded middle brother, and Francesca Penrose. Orion has been offered an apprenticeship with Sir Geoffrey Blayne, a famous science, and he leaps at the chance. Not only will be able to study under a renowned scientist, but Sir Geoffrey can smooth Orion's way into the greater scientific community, and he has the chance to court his dau [...]

    16. Today's post is on I Thee Wed by Celeste Bradley. It is the fourth in her Wicked Worthingtons Series but you do not have to have read the first three to understand and enjoy the story. It is 335 pages long and is published by Signet Select. The cover has main female character on it looking at the reader. The intended reader is someone who likes romance. There is mild foul language, sex, and no violence in this book. The story is told from the third person close of different characters moving as [...]

    17. Mmmm, it was OK; three stars is a wee bit too kind. I am sure that this is the first HR I've read with a virginal hero. Interesting that he knew just what to do I wish it had a better title. They didn't really talk about marriage (between themselves) until the very end, since Orion was understood to be engaged-to-be-engaged to someone else the entire story. The title just did not match the plot or the characters at all.Orion and Francesca are likable people, though Francesca had a superhuman abi [...]

    18. I really liked this book and I love Orion & Chessa ( and of course Attie) the only fault I had with this book was all the science Science was not a good subject in school for me so my eyes kept glazing over on those parts and I would lose focus. I am looking forward to the next book WEDDED BLISS Bliss and Neville's book

    19. Orion was rather nice (and distracted) and Francesca was lovely in her determination.Some silly moments, some wisecracks, and some rather endearing (sexy) interludes :)

    20. allaboutromance/book-revieI Thee Wed is the fourth book in Celeste Bradley’s The Wicked Worthington series. I have not read any of the previous novels in this series and was able to follow along fairly well as the characters were introduced. While it is not necessary to have read the earlier stories to understand this one, I believe I’d have better understood the hero’s perspective if I had. I am conflicted about this book. There were times I thought the writing was close to outstanding, b [...]

    21. Find the review at: meghan-barrettI have a confession - I used to be an avid reader of romance. About five years ago, I worked as a reviewer for three blogs and also had my own personal blog where I held contests and centralized all my reviews. Unfortunately, college quickly forced me to re prioritize (homework? sleep? eating? pick two, and forget about the rest of life!). I was delighted when I heard about Celeste Bradley's most recent regency romance novel, I Thee Wed, which came out in May of [...]

    22. Originally posted on Adria's Romance Reviews* A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review.Sensible, science driven Orion Worthington wants nothing more than to follow in his mentor, Sir Geoffrey Blayne’s footsteps. Sir Geoffrey’s daughter by all accounts is Orion’s ideal match only he can’t get lively Francesca Penrose out of his mind. Francesca has an intelligence that rivals Orion’s and she hopes that she can prove herself a goo [...]

    23. I will start by saying that I am italian. We italian are very touchy about italian food. Especially about those things that are very wrongly attributed to italian cuisine when you wouldn't be able to find them anywhere in the italian peninsula. The Bolognese sauce is one of them. Now, lets be clear, we do have a sauce invented in Bologna that is very similar to what is called Bolognese sauce, and this is ragù, and there's no oregano and basil in it, on the other hand there's a lot of minced bee [...]

    24. Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksThat shrill, high pitched noise you all heard on April 14 was me shrieking with joy as I read the back cover of I Thee Wed and realized that it involves not one but two scientists who fall in love in 1818 over arguments about Lamarckism while a six-year-old Charles Darwin periodically shows up and wreaks havoc. I could not have been more thrilled if someone had given me a pony (though I don’t have any place to put a pony). Happily, the book lived up to [...]

    25. Intelligent and driven, Orion Worthington aspired to be like his mentor, the acclaimed scientist Sir Geoffrey Blayne. Logically, Sir Geoffrey’s daughter would be Orion’s perfect match. So why can’t he keep his mind off the unruly girl who works in Sir Geoffrey’s lab? Orphaned fire-cracker Francesca Penrose hopes that London is modern enough to accept her brilliant mind despite her womanhood. But she can’t help noticing Orion’s mindor his body.So they decide to run an experiment: if t [...]

    26. Originally posted on You Have Your Hands FullI received a copy of this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewI have not read any of Celeste Bradley’s books before, but I enjoy historical romances set in the Regency era, so I was excited about reading I Thee Wed. This is the fourth book in the Wicked Worthingtons series, which follows the exploits of the Worthingtons, a family with eight children. Each book is devoted to one of the siblings, and follows his/her love [...]

    27. Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.: amzn/1Tbi4DZMad scientists, fiery Italians, and bunnies. Lots and lots of bunnies. I Thee Wed had an interesting set up for a historical and I loved that. The hero has taken an apprenticeship with a scientist in order to hopefully make a name for himself in the field. But things aren't at all what the very methodical and rather socially awkward Orion expected. For startershis mentor's passionate and lively niece has Orion's mind all a flutter. Not o [...]

    28. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for an honest review. I've enjoyed the previous titles in this series, but this was my favorite. In some ways, Orion reminded me of a historical and more functional version of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. Orion Worthington loves his large crazy family, but fears they are holding him back from becoming a respected member of the Royal Fraternity of Life Sciences so he agrees to become an apprentice to Sir Geoffrey Blayne. Sir Geoffrey is known [...]

    29. Thoroughly enjoyed! Smart, funny and touching. I did the end was a tad overdramatic compared to the relatively slow pace of the rest of the story, but that's easy to forgive. I realized I was reading this along with the last in the Pride series by Shelly Laurenston and both focused on large, gifted, slightly dysfunctional families. Luckily the difference between historical and contemporary and the characters themselves were enough to keep reading fatigue at bay. I'll definitely go back and check [...]
