A December Bride
Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at a December wedding.
What started as a whim turned into an accidental - and very public - engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the facade in Chapel Springs this holiday season - for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?
Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy, the best friend of Layla O'Reilly's ex-fiance would be the last person she'd marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency, a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she'll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she's landed her client. For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart. A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
This was a really good book and a quick read. Layla has grown up being told she wasn't good enough. After being with Seth for a couple weeks she begins to learn and believe she's worth more than she ever thought before. Seth opens his big mouth and says he and Layla are engaged and will get married in less than 4 weeks. What starts out as the worst thing he could have said ends up to be the best thing that ever happened to Layla.
