Runaway Groom By Fiona Lowe
Book Three in the Wedding Fever Trilogy.
I’m excited about my latest release, Runaway Groom, which is the third book in my Wedding Fever trilogy.
The first two books of the trilogy, Saved By The Bride and Picture Perfect Wedding were set in summer but I set Runaway Groom in early fall/autumn — Indian summer —because it is my favorite time of year! The mornings and evenings are cool but the days are sunny and the trees are starting to turn. Oh how I love the fall colors and in the north woods of Wisconsin. They are vibrant red, orange and yellow as the sugar maples, oaks, and basswood’s leaves all change and start to fall.
And what better way to view the fall colors than from the back of a vintage Harley Davidson motorcycle. Wisconsin’s rustic roads offer that very opportunity and the chance to see some wildlife like wolves and the occasional black bear.
So what’s Runaway Groom about? Well, Aussie Ben Armytage is taking the road trip of his life on his vintage motorcycle, riding from Antarctica to Alaska and his only pre-requite is not to stay long in any one place, especially not in a town obsessed with weddings. Of course, life has a way of throwing curve balls at you and Ben gets stuck in Whitetail…I won’t tell you how because that’s a very funny scene and I don’t want to spoil it.
Amy Sagar has spent her life doing the right thing and never putting a foot wrong but suddenly she’s out of her job and at risk of being the center of an enormous scandal. Desperate to hide out for a while, she goes to the one place she has happy memories; Whitetail. The last thing she is expecting is to have to share a vacation log cabin with a biker. Only it turns out he isn’t exactly the renegade he’d like her to believe. And he’s utterly gorgeous.
Can a disgraced lawyer with body image issues and a health freak biker with trust issues find a way to be together?
Throw in the secondary story of Melissa, the owner of Whitetail’s Northern Lights Boutique and the tertiary story of Mrs. Norell, the cake decorator and there’s a lot of romance in Whitetail.
The blurb says…
Amy Sagar’s life is in ruins. Fired from her fast-track job and dumped by her double-crossing boyfriend, she retreats to Whitetail, Wisconsin, to lick her wounds and regroup. Meeting an impossible, sexy Australian isn’t part of her strategy for getting back on track.
Ben Armytage is running away. After being left at the altar and publicly humiliated, he’s taking his vintage motorcycle on an extended road trip from Argentina to Alaska. Having his journey interrupted by a breakdown and sharing a house with a curvy, redheaded lawyer in a town obsessed with weddings was never on his itinerary.
Though being stuck in a luxury log cabin isn’t really a hardship, living together with their broken hearts isn’t easy. When the attraction between Amy and Ben proves unstoppable, they’ll both begin rethinking their plans…
