There isn’t a woman in town who’s immune to the legendary Chandler charm. So far single cop Rick Chandler has managed to fend off the marriage-minded advances of Yorkshire Falls’ entire female population. A past mistake has taught him never to put his heart on the line … until he answers the SOS of a real-life runaway bride. In spite of her pearly gown and tiara, Kendall Sutton vows to never wed—making her the ideal pretend lover who can ward off Rick’s legion of admirers. When their passionate charade flames into the real thing, Rick is suddenly thinking about two words that spell forever after—but will Kendall ever say I do? Can a woman who’s had it with weddings tie the knot with the town’s most popular playboy?

    " For how fast I got through this book, you'd think I would have liked it more. I enjoy Phillips writing style, and there was some good banter in this book, but neither Rick or Kendall vibed with me enough for me to really get swept away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla Sloan | 2/5/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/26/2014

    " I read these books when I was in high school. They were my first and only experience with actual romance novels. I LOVED them. If I remember, they are pretty innocent compared to some other stuff I have read to date. I mean, there was some sexy sex, but it was tasteful and romantic. I have tried to read some more of her stuff since but just could not get into them. "
