What’s a bridesmaid to do?
Head bridesmaid Emily Applegate is furious when Lord Berkeley cancels her best friend’s wedding venue. But gorgeous Theo is adamant that the wedding won’t happen at his estate… unless Emily makes a trade. But is Emily willing to play the Earl’s fake fiancée? Especially when there’s absolutely nothing fake about the sizzle between them…!
This is the second part of the first duet I’ve ever written-and I had so much fun with it! After she made a rather striking appearance in Fired by Her Fling, as Lula’s best friend, I was desperate to give Emily her own happy-ever-after, and in Bridesmaid with Attitude I got my chance.
Emily is the epitome of an anti-heroine: she’s bolshie, a little on the self-centred side, and very determined to get what she wants-no matter what it takes to get it. And I love her. She’s had a very tough upbringing, but she hasn’t let it beat her down, and even though it’s made it hard for her to let people get emotionally close she lives her life to the max.
In order to force her out of her self-protective bubble she needs a hero with a determination to equal her own-and in Theo she finally meets her match.
These two challenge each other in ways they’ve never experienced before, and through dogged persistence-and some truly testing events-together they finally manage to overcome their worst fears and emerge on the other side as stronger, more confident and much happier people.
I hope you enjoy their journey as much as I did.
With best wishes
