The Wedding Must Go On!
I’m getting into a show called Don’t Tell The Bride. A betrothed couple are given $25,000 to stage their wedding – on one condition. The groom must choose and organize *everything*. The theme, the venue, the cake as well as the <gasp!> wedding dress. Now some guys are pretty clever. There’s been 20s gangster themes and romantic commitments uttered in snow-covered wonderlands. And luckily the gals have all loved their gowns.
This kind of concession wouldn’t work for Roxy Trammel, the heroine of my October UK Modern Romance release, The Wedding Must Go On.
Roxy creates exquisite wedding dresses and is particularly in love with the gown she designed for her best friend. It’s a finalist in a prestigious contest, the prize being a job in New York and a wad of cash, which means she can pay back a clutch of impatient creditors. The only condition? Her gown must take its walk down the aisle at month’s end.
Not a problem.
Until Roxy’s friend unearths a shocking secret about her now ex-fiancé – a piece of sordid information that Roxy isn’t sold on. The wedding is off and gown put away as are Roxy’s dreams of winning that contest. Then the insufferably sexy, commitment-phobic best man comes up with an idea.
Crazy. Doomed to failure. However, Nate Sparks assures Roxy their friends will be reunited. He even sweetens the deal. If she helps him with this scheme and he’s wrong – if his plan fails – that dress will still have its big day before the end of the month.
Roxy can dress up and he’ll marry her himself!
