What could be more romantic than a wedding… unless you’re stuck in a fake relationship with a hot man you don’t like. Warm up after a long winter with two fun, romantic wedding romances available together for a limited time.
Hired Bride by Noelle Adams – For years, Deanna’s eccentric grandmother has been trying to marry her off to a rich man, and she’s finally managed to do it. Sexy, obnoxious Mitchell Graves needs a wife to finalize a business deal, and he thinks she’ll be easy enough to manage as a wife. He couldn’t be more wrong.
The Wedding Season by Samantha Chase – To get through the six weddings she has to attend this summer, Tricia plans to pretend her best friend, Sean, is her boyfriend. But then Sean sends his brother, Ryan, in his place. Now Tricia has to go to all these weddings with her best friend’s brother, who is stirring up feelings she never expected.
The first story is Hidden Bride from Noelle and I really enjoyed it. The story is set in Savannah, Georgia and while its set in modern times, we do see a lot of the history of Savannah culture and the old families in the area. Our hero and heroine meet by chance at a Savannah social event. Deanna’s grandmother is constantly trying to marry her off and Mitchell is only there for business purposes. Somehow, they end up with the story they’re engaged to be married. Mitchell wants the 6 month marriage for business purposes and Deanna is really only doing it to assist her family.
One of my favorite aspects of this story is that its really the hero, Mitchell Graves, who really undergoes the transformation. Deanna changes some, but for her, its more about letting go of the tension and responsibilities that she puts on herself. But Mitchell’s character really evolves as his relationship with Deanna continues.
The next book is from Samantha Chase and is called The Wedding Season. Our story starts with friends Trish and Sean agreeing to endure the wedding season together. Many of their friends are getting married and both are tired of people pitying them or trying to set them up. But Sean can’t make it home for the weddings and asks the next best person to step up to the plate, his brother, Ryan.
Ryan and Trish’s story is really sweet. I actually really enjoyed this story and it follows some of the more traditional aspects that I see Samantha Chase go towards but then she adds in these twists that kept the story new and different from her other works. I really respect that, as an author, she does this. The stories have the feeling I’ve come to know and love but still add new elements and new situations for our characters to experience.
I would definitely recommend both of these books. The stories are sweet, feel-good love stories.
