In With this Ring, the third novel in the Wicked Worthington Series by Celeste Bradley, we finds the family down on their luck after the loss of the family estate to a fire. Nineteen year old Elektra Worthington, the middle daughter, feels that it is her responsibility to return the family to social and economic prominence by marrying into money. In preparation for her coming out season in London Society, Elektra has used her considerable manipulative talents to secure invitations to all of the finest events and acquire an appropriate wardrobe. All that’s left is to choose an appropriate target. “Here’s a juicy tidbit from your very own Voice of Society,” began the gossip column in the local daily news. “Now returning triumphantly from a wealth- building sojourn in the Bahamas, Lord Aaron Arbogast, who will soon assume the title of the Earl of Arbodean, has a secret motive – he has, in fact, come home to find himself a proper English countess!” Lord Aaron Arbogast. She wrote his name on her list of possible conquests, underlining it, not once, but twice. In the delightful comedy of errors that follows, the unsuspecting Lord Aaron, who has secrets of his own, finds himself the victim of Elektra’s schemes to get his attention. In an act of desperation, she even kidnaps him. It is very easy to like Elektra and Lord Aaron as the author sends them through a story filled with several humorous twists and turns. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a quick, quirky escape, and while having read the first two Worthington books would definitely be a plus, you can certainly enjoy With this Ring as a stand-alone delight.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
