The wedding may be off, but the honeymoon is on. . .
Merilee Fallon has been planning her wedding to Matt Townsend since she was seven, and now the big day is only two days away. But suddenly she has an unexpectedly serious case of cold feet. So she shocks both Matt and herself--and calls off the wedding.
They may not get their happily ever after, but both Merilee and Matt agree they shouldn't let their non-refundable honeymoon go to waste. So they take the Mexican Riviera cruise--as friends. It's Merilee's chance to be adventurous, and maybe even put her newfound freedom to the test. But she's about to discover that sometimes there's nothing more arousing than first love--especially on a cruise ship where there are no rules and anything goes. . .
Praise for Susan Fox's His, Unexpectedly
"A contemporary love story sure to make readers go weak in the knees. Well-crafted story lines and richly observed characters bolster a strong erotic element in this delightful, memorable romance." –Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A skillful combination of sexy and smart." --All About Romance Reviews
Merilee's sisters have had such over-the-top whirlwind romances that now Merilee's steady, long-term relationship with boy-next-door Matt seems boring in comparison. A health scare prematurely leads them to get engaged, but Matt's not the type to make grand gestures, so Merilee begins to doubt their love and calls off the wedding. Matt, however, refuses to give up and attempts to win Merilee back by persuading her to take their honeymoon as friends. Their cruise trip is enlivened by sexual tension and uncertainty, and as the novel progresses, true love invariably takes its course. Underneath an abundance of ridiculous froth are two worthy morals: romance is no substitute for self-identity, and one should never take a loved one for granted. The sum is a light but satisfying firelight read.
Great story. I enjoyed the whole series.
