Never say never when it comes to love in A Wedding at Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer.
Greer Jones has made a real name for herself at the elegant matchmaking agency Two Love Lane. For a lot of reasons—including a past engagement she broke off—practical tech expert Greer is more interested in the business of love than the experience of it, but she can’t help but covet a gorgeous wedding gown that’s the prize in an upcoming cocktail-party contest. In a moment of brazen inspiration, Greer asks a handsome Brit she’s only just met to accompany her to the party. He agrees—and Greer believes her date is a starving artist. Little does she know the truth. . .
Ford Smith, as he calls himself, is actually Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, the Eighth Baron of Wickshire. Fresh off a breakup with a money-grubbing siren who deceived him all the way to the altar, Ford has no desire to fall in love—especially with Greer who, like the desired wedding gown, is beautiful but only skin-deep. But soon Ford realizes that there’s more to Greer than meets the eye. Her professionalism is matched only by her passion for life and love. . .and, best of all, she has no idea that he’s to the manor born. Could it be that true love is priceless after all?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Steeped in Southern charm, Kieran Kramer's sweet contemporary romance is perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber and Susan Mallery. To enter a competition for the wedding dress of her dreams, Greer Jones needs to find a fake fiancé. Little does Greer know that her partner-in-deceit is really an English baron—and her Prince Charming—in disguise. This secret identity and the romantic Charleston setting create a wonderful fairy-tale feel that brightens the day.
Kramer returns to the nicest matchmaking agency in Charleston, S.C., in her sweet second Two Love Lane contemporary (after Christmas at Two Love Lane). Greer Jones, the mathematical genius behind the algorithms used for matchmaking success at Two Love Lane, steps out of her comfort zone and enters a contest to win the most beautiful wedding dress she has ever seen. She has no groom or plans to marry, so she asks her newfound friend, British artist Ford Smith, to accompany her when she enters the contest. She has no idea he is really Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, Baron Wickshire. When Ford and Greer learn that lacking a groom will most certainly result in her losing the contest, he makes an unplanned yet romantic madcap faux proposal that starts her wondering whether she might wear that dress after all. As Ford and Greer spend more time together and she agrees to let him paint her, the spark of their friendship kindles into sensual flames, even though their engagement isn't supposed to be a real one. Charleston provides a beautiful backdrop for this charming romance between affable and talented protagonists.
A Wedding at Two Love Lane is the second book in Two Love Lane series. While I wasn't a huge fan of the first book in the series, I truly loved this one. Greer and Ford just seemed to click right from the beginning. As love will do it sneaks up on these two even though neither is looking for any kind of relationship. Both have been burned in the past but it seems that what is growing between them is the real deal. Will Greer still accept Ford once she finds out he's not the starving artist she believes him to be??
This book is wonderfully written and I think you will enjoy the story and characters as much as I did. I highly recommend this one.
A must read!!
This was a fantastic book!!!
It drew me in from the beginning, and held me there with Greer’s awesome attitude and the sparks that flew between her and Ford. These two were so sweet and sexy together. To see there relationship go from strangers to falling in love was awesome. Add in an awesome story line, and it was the perfect read (even with a certain butthead trying to wreak havoc). I would definitely recommend reading this.
