Penelope Moore's last boyfriend had no qualms about cheating even after he professed his undying love. As a wedding event planner Penelope has seen plenty of happily-ever-after. But with her terrible luck in the relationship department, she is reluctant to believe it will ever happen to her.
Ferguson enjoyed the freedom of bachelorhood until he met his last girlfriend. He considered her the love of his life until she betrayed him. Without his consent, she used his professional experience and knowledge as a private investigator to write and publish a best-selling novel. Ferguson couldn't forgive her underhanded deceit and ended their relationship.
When Ferguson meets Penelope he is once again willing to risk his heart, but Penelope isn't as trusting. Just when he is beginning to win the beautiful event planner's heart, his ex-girlfriend arrives in town and causes heartache all over again.
Can Penelope and Ferguson trust each other and their hearts enough to get their happily-ever-after?

A very cute short story. Penelope has reason to distrust love. She is a wedding planner and love is alright for others, but not for her. Ferguson comes into town and after meeting Penelope, he decides to stay. He know what he wants and is willing to risk his heart again, but can he convince Penelope that he won't let her down?

A beautiful story unfolds... Two souls that have been hurt before... will they give themselves another chance to find happiness!? What a lovely read! I really enjoyed seeing Penelope and Ferguson's story play out! I love a book that makes me smile and this one surely did! :)

Fun, flirty, quick escape that will leave you with a smile and joy in your heart. Penelope is an amazing event planner so when it’s time for her boss to get married, she handles all the details, even picking up the sexy soon to be brother-in-law, Ferguson. Ferguson had his heart crushed but something about Penelope draws him in yet she won’t have any of it. He has to up his game to break through her reluctance and spend time with him. When their mutual love of animals opens the door, will Ferguson be able to seal the deal?

You can always count on Sharon Kleve for a short and sweet romance with a very happy ending! There is no high-stress angst, just two people finding someone special to make their lives complete. Penelope may know the sting of betrayal, and she may be a little love-shy, but when Ferguson, (also betrayed by the woman he thought he would give up his merry bachelorhood for), pours on his simple, yet sincere charm, sparks are flying and tails are wagging! Will the wedding planner finally get her day to say I do? Simple and sigh-worthy, this quick read from Sharon Klee is the perfect ray of loveshine to make readers smile. THE RELUCTANT BRIDE proves that there is someone for everyone, but sometimes you need to sort through the frogs before the real prince appears. A slice of wonderful with a fluffy frosting on top!
