Marnie Price’s guide to surviving the bridesmaid blues
- Get a new man
- Find a new job
- When in doubt, drink wine!
Having watched her three closest friends all find love, Southern belle Marnie Price feels as if she’s the only single girl left. Luckily she’s found a solution—one sizzling night with Dylan Brookes. This man wears a wedding tux better than anyone, but all Marnie wants to do is get beneath it!
Dylan is all about making the sensible choice, and a fling with his ex’s friend Marnie is about as far from sensible as he can get! Marnie might prove to him that taking risks is worth it, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to give up his bachelor status quite yet, does it ?
I was so excited to be asked to be part of the first Modern TemptedTM continuity-especially when I found out that I’d be lined up with Aimee Carson, Amy Andrews and Heidi Rice. We had so much fun creating the characters and the concept, and it was just an awesome experience working with such talented writers.
But the downside to working with such talented writes is that they’re so darn good. Like utterly intimidatingly good. And my book would come last in the line-up. Talk about pressure! (Picture me hyperventilating into a bag of jelly beans when I read their fabulous books.)
In the end, though, I couldn’t be more pleased with what we did. While I love Marnie and Dylan to pieces, I also love Gina and Carter, Cassie and Tuck, and Reese and Mason. Marnie and Dylan may be ‘mine’, but I’m quite invested in the others, as well-very much like a doting auntie. I hope you come to love them as much as we do.
So big kisses to Aimee, Amy and Heidi-thanks for making this experience an amazing one. You ladies (and your books) rock!
And, as always, I’d love to hear from you, dear reader. You can find me on Facebook and Twitter or on my website at www.booksbykimberly.com.
