Publisher Description

OPPOSITES? Oh, yeah. ATTRACT? Absolutely

She’s all work and no play. He’s an expert at fun. Their romance is the game of their lives.

Paul Monroe needs a temporary assistant while his is on maternity leave. Not an unusual situation for a small business owner… Except his savvy assistant knows Paul and his antique toy appraisal business require someone special. He’s a charmer, all right. But not everyone appreciates his playful approach to life.

He needs a perfect fit.

Bette Wharton is all in to make her temp agency a success by matching the right temp with each client. She’ll work as long and hard as it takes to follow her plan to success. So when she’s hit by a shockingly high turnover rate for temps sent to Paul’s business, she rolls up her suit sleeves to get to the heart of the problem.

She needs to dance through imperfections.

The no-nonsense businesswoman might have met her match when she squares off against Paul’s determination to teach her about letting her hair down. Especially when she discovers a wounded heart beneath all his fun.

Can Paul and Bette get their timing right and find a perfect fit to dance together through the twists and turns of imperfections?

Prelude to a Wedding is the first book in The Wedding Series -- feel-good contemporary romantic comedies. If you crave characters you’d like to know, magnetic chemistry, humor with heart, and romance to believe in, you’ll love this irresistible workplace romance.

Good book

I enjoyed this book even though it was completely predictable.

Prelude to a series I anticipate!

The plot was not a straight line to what is usually expected. Not hard to follow, but different! Easy to read as there were no grammatical errors, misspellings, or mixed up pronouns! On to the next one with great anticipation!
