Saying ‘I do’ Is Work

With: Jennifer Faye

Congratulations to "Carrie", the winner in Jennifer's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Weddings and romance go together like champagne and strawberries. The perfect combo.

Except sometimes wedding plans have a way of going astray as they do for Lizzie and Dante (THE PLAYBOY OF ROME). That’s where Jules steps up to help her foster-sister out with the planning. Jules loves to plan things so this is right up her alley. She’s forever the bridesmaid with lots of practice. ;-)

But saying ‘I do’ at a Italian Vineyard comes with its own set of challenges. And this New York girl needs a bit of help from sexy Stefano DeFiore, the best man and brother of the groom. Yet, Stefano wants nothing to do with the wedding preparations. After all, it’s not hard. It’s just a bunch of frou-frou, right?
Poor Stefano, he has to learn. LOL.

“The thing is we have to have the wedding in the next two months—”

“What?” Jules’s eyes grew round. “That’s not possible. Do they know what it takes to plan a wedding?”

“They were really excited about the idea. They said it could really boost ratings.” Lizzie clutched Dante’s hand. “I…I told them we could do it.”

“You did what?” Jules’s face filled with color as she pressed her lips together.

Stefano didn’t know if Jules was going to yell or cry. And Lizzie looked upset, too. Honestly, he didn’t know what the big deal was. The only thing you needed was the bride and groom, and the rest was a bunch of froufrou.

“Jules, you don’t understand. This is the opportunity of a lifetime.”

His gaze ping-ponged between the two women. Tempers were rising. If someone didn’t do something, this happy reunion was going to end up in a fight. And he didn’t want to see that happen— especially when the disagreement would be over something so stupid.

“Ladies, I’m sure it can be worked out. After all, it’s only a wedding. How hard can it be?”

Suddenly everyone’s attention was on Stefano. The two women looked as though they would send poisonous arrows his way if they could. Dante smiled and shook his head, but he didn’t say a word. So much for receiving any support from his own flesh and blood.

Jules marched over to him. She planted her hands on her hips and lifted her chin. “Exactly how many weddings have you planned?”

He wasn’t about to get into that debate, but when he opened his mouth there was a distinct disconnect between his brain and his vocal cords. “It can’t be that hard. After all, the venue is all taken care of.”

“The venue is only one part of a wedding.”

“So you pick out some pretty dresses and order a cake. Nothing to stress out about.”

Jules glared at him and turned away. “Said like a man who has never planned a wedding.”

Best Man for the Bridesmaid

Always the bridesmaid... 

Planning her sister's Italian wedding only reminds Jules Lane of how far away she is from finding her own true love. And worse, she's doing it alongside the brooding, mouthwateringly handsome best man, Stefano DeFiore. 

Having seen the destructive power of love, Stefano has no time for weddings--but Jules's smile is captivating. Making her feel like the most beautiful woman in the world is one thing, but can he give this blushing bridesmaid a happily-ever-after of her own?

  1. COngrats on your new release! As for wedding traditions... the only wedding I have attended was when my sister stood before a judge to get married. I think my fav part of any wedding would be seeing how happy the couple is... the smiles, the laughter, the good cheer!

    1. Thanks so much! :-) It's always great to see people so happy and in love.

  2. no fav tradition

  4. My fav tradition is when they have the reception line as then you get to meet everyones mom and later when you see them you know who they are.

    1. You do better with those reception lines than I do. By the time I'm finished, I usually don't remember who is who. ;-)
