Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Summer Wedding Collection. Readers will love this collection of six sweet contemporary romance novellas, centered on a Summer Wedding, all with one thing in common: Romance.
In Melanie Jacobson's charming novella, Love Bytes, Bree is the maid-of-honor and Dallen is the best-man. While they plan and plot over email and texting, Bree realizes that the best part about the Maui wedding might be meeting Dallen. She just hopes that he'll feel the same way.
Romeo and Julie-ex is a sweet romance by Julie Wright. "Romeo" turns out to be a two-timing jerk, and when Juliet Moore's pre-ordered wedding dress arrives from UPS, Juliet curses everything male. In a stubborn streak, she decides to keep the bridal photography appointment--when Juliet shows up for the appointment and meets photographer Jack Montague, she might have to take back some of her curses on men.
In Rachael Anderson's enchanting novella, The Meltdown Match, Courtney spends each summer in her hometown of Heimel, Alaska, to find inspiration for her next novel. But when she runs into former high school friend, Mitch Winters, and they both win the Meltdown Match--a traditional dating contest--Courtney discovers that leaving her hometown at the end of the summer might not be so easy this time.
In Golden Sunrise, an engaging romance by Annette Lyon, Natalie takes time out of her crazy schedule to fly to Vegas for her best friend's wedding. Sierra and Jason, high-school sweethearts, are finally getting married. Fortunately for Natalie, her old high-school flame, Adam, has a work commitment and can't be there as best man. But when she arrives at the wedding rehearsal--late and ragged--Adam is there. When Adam makes a wild suggestion, Natalie just may take him up on it, even though she knows he's moved on. A single choice may mean Natalie is taking a shot at reclaiming the past--or that she's putting her heart in harm's way a second time.
Tide Pools is a captivating story by Heather B. Moore. Lexi makes a quick trip to Hawaii to attend her friend's wedding, and she discovers that the engaged couple, Sydney and Apelu, are still trying to match-make for her. Lexi laughs because not only does their friend David have a serious girlfriend, but he owns a restaurant on the island. But when Lexi meets David, she has a hard time remembering why all of her plans were so important.
In Sarah M. Eden's delightful novella, A Regular Bloke from Stanmore, Abby is helping her sister, Caroline, plan her British wedding. That's right, Caroline is obsessed with all things British and insists on an authentic wedding in . . . Oregon. When they arrive at Sainsbury House reception hall, it has everything Caroline loves, and the host, Matthew Carlton, even has a British accent. Yet Abby isn't buying the whole good-looking-British man with impeccable manners thing; she's determined to expose him as a fake. But the more Abby gets to know Matthew, the more she realizes how wrong she really is.

After several years of photographing weddings, I have a love-hate attitude about them. It's such a special day, but there is so much work and planning that goes into them, the emotions can run high and it's the perfect recipe for drama. I guess that's why they make good stories! ;) I enjoyed these novellas because they focus on someone besides the bride and groom falling in love. Sometimes I feel the plot ends too quickly-right when things are getting good... but that's the nature of short stories. I loved that each setting was unique and the premises were creative.
I have read the winter collection, spring vacation collection and now this one-the Summer wedding collection. This collection consisted of: Love Bytes by Melanie Jacobson; Romeo and Julie-Ex by Julie Wright; The Meltdown Match by Rachael Anderson; Golden Sunrise by Annette Lyon; Tide Pools by Heather Moore; and A Regular Bloke from Stanmore by Sarah M. Eden. I read all 5 short stories and I liked each one individually-I was trying to remember which one I liked the best, and honestly I can't pick a favorite because they were all well written and each story was different. Heather Moore's book "Tide Pools" was about Lexi who visits Hawaii for a friends wedding and meets a wonderful guy named David but he happens to have a girlfriend! Of course it all works out in the end!! All of these stories are a quick romantic read-would recommend!! Wonderful group of authors!!
I enjoyed each of these stories. They made me want to read more books by each author!
I really liked this collection of short novellas! You got a taste for each author and their writing, and while some were better than others, together it was a great collection of fiction :) Highly recommended, especially if you're really busy, cause as a mom I don't have forever to read, but could read one of these novels here or there and feel satisfied until I had time for another.
I have really enjoyed the different seasonal collections offered in the Timeless Romance Anthology eBooks. When I saw that Melanie Jacobson, Julie Wright, Rachael Anderson, Annette Lyon, Heather Moore and Sarah M. Eden were all contributing to the Summer Wedding Collection, I was VERY excited to read it. What a talented group of authors! The Summer Wedding Collection is probably my favorite in the Timeless Romance Anthology so far. The stories are fun and sweet (as usual), with the added bonus of feeling fairly realistic. Although not always possible with novellas, the authors in this collection did a great job of not rushing through their stories. My favorite story was Romeo and Julie-Ex by Julie Wright. It is such a great romance! It is clean and full of emotion. I loved Jack and Juliet, and thought there were some great one liners. Other than a couple of swear words in Love Bytes, the stories are clean and quick, entertaining reads.
Of all the Timeless Romance Anthologies, this is the best one yet. What goes better with romance than planning a good 'ol summer wedding? Well, maybe getting jilted at the altar. Twice. Or getting married in Vegas. Or perhaps getting jilted at the altar IN Vegas. Nothing says "wedding" like romantic plight! Each story was fresh and unique. No two were alike. That's what makes these anthologies so much fun to read..and real. No two people are like, nor their romance, and in this case their weddings: Hawaiian luaus, the Vegas strip, a summer solstice that promises love everlasting. But whether or not the solstice is right, this collection dishes up a healthy dose of love and hope. Perfection! Anxiously awaiting the Autumn collection!!!
