You are cordially invited to join the wedding celebrations as college friends embark on the greatest education of all - falling in love, finding the perfect bride, and becoming the happiest grooms around.
Charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly and all that charm - and sexiness - is aimed at you.
Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton's hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable and office romance -- especially with this man who even makes the workplace fun -- is definitely not part of it. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment if all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

“Fun and serious all at the same time. Love how the friends intertwine and add new along the way. It was refreshing to read the different stories and having them all come together. Really enjoyed this series!” – 5-star review
“Full of warmth, understanding of human nature, and great characters. They are connected, following the lives of college friends, and by the time you are finished, you feel as if you are a part of their extended circle. A dash of sex here, but not to the point that it overshadows the well thought out storylines. Definitely a feel good experience.” -- 5-star review

Prelude to a Wedding
First time reading this author. I am always hesitant to try a new author, worrying I am going to be disappointed, or that I have wasted my money. Pleasantly surprised this time. I enjoyed Bette and Paul’s story. It was different from a lot of romances out today. No dirty talk and no overly descriptive sex. I will read this author again.
