Overview

You are cordially invited to join the wedding celebrations as college friends embark on the greatest education of all - falling in love, finding the perfect bride, and becoming the happiest grooms around.


In the romantic comedy Prelude to a Wedding, charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly and all that charm - and sexiness - is aimed at you.

Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton's hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable and office romance -- especially with this man who even makes the workplace fun -- is definitely not part of it. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment if all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

Paul and Bette are just adorable. But I also can't wait to get to know Michael and Grady better. The story is cute and the struggle and growth in Paul and Bette are believable. I really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book. I also liked the way the writer did not go into detail of the love scenes. Very tastefully done .  Good story.  Can't waitto read more of her books.

A 205 page romance story and first in series of a man who hides within an unstructured life that finds himself attracted to distraction to a woman that lives by a plan guide. Can they both get past their fears of being under too much control and out of control to enjoy a life......... Detailed explicit sex scenes. Also contained in the Romancing the Bride collection.

Characters were so so. They didnt seem in their early 30's. Something was off....whether it was he was too pushy or she was too pasive not sure. The storyline was ok maybe it was just the characters. Maybe they were both immature for their age???

Don't get me wrong. The book was well written, but halfway through I lost the stomach for his behavior. Can he take Bette's feelings, her desires into the slightest consideration? It seems to me, her only recourse should be a restraining order. This is not a romance. It's a how-to manual for creeps.
