Romantic Tuesday Review: A Night With The Bride by Kate McKinley

Romantic Thur & TueIt’s Romantic Thursday Tuesday with Bookmunchies! So what is Romantic Tuesday you ask!? The same as Romantic Thursday, but now with the added being on Tuesday too.

So why is Thursday ( & Tuesday) romantic? Because I like Thursday (& Tuesday) and I like romance! Basically, I just love romance, in YA books, in adult, contemporary, historical, whichever the genre and sometimes I’m too lazy to write full reviews but I do love sharing fun quotes or just gushing about characters. So that’s what Romantic Thursday is for! To share my love. May it be through actual full reviews, quick reviews, or just fun quotes.

*This book is intended for mature audiences.

While at a lavish house party, Gabriella Weatherfield confidently bets her friends that she can convince the “unseducible” Duke of Somerset to kiss her. But Gabriella’s innocent wager turns wicked when faced with the duke’s intense blue eyes and talented hands.

Nicholas Montgomery usually strives to stay away from society, yet there’s no denying Gabriella’s wild beauty or the way she makes him want to lose control for once. Will the fire between them burn out when Gabriella uncovers the inner demons haunting Nicholas?


Another romance at the Invitation Only party, this time with a headstrong heroine and a reclusive duke with an intriguing secret. Truth be told…I’m not actually sure why this novella was called A Night with the Bride. I feel like I might have missed something, or we’re implying she will be a bride…? Anyway, that being said, it wasn’t bad read.

Gabriella makes a bet saying she can seduce Nicholas. He actually overhears and knows of her plans. Oh, let the sparks fly. I do love the dynamic between a hoity duke and tradesman’s daughter. Nicholas is pretty determined to rebuff Gabriella because he feels/knows he won’t make a good husband and father, but Gabriella is just as determined to win him over. They can be a pretty cute couple, and Nicholas actually has OCD which plays a big part in the story. I’m definitely intrigued by it, and sort of wish we got a longer story that looks these types of disorders in a time where it’s not as easily diagnosis or known and rather is just considered a madness.

Overall, another good romance for the most part. There were little bits that annoyed me a bit, but in the end I’m glad they got their happy ending.
