Brides & Beaches Romance
Escape to Getaway Bay and join the Brides & Beaches series for some seriously sweet romance - that always ends in a wedding!
A helicopter pilot, the woman whose house he's squatting in, and their journey toward their own beach wedding...
Charlotte Madsen's whole world came crashing down six months ago with the words, "I met someone else." Her marriage of eleven years dissolved, and she left one island on the east coast for the island of Getaway Bay. She was not expecting a tall, handsome man to be flat on his back under the kitchen sink when she arrives at the supposedly abandoned house.
Former Air Force pilot, Dawson Dane, has a charming devil-may-care personality, and Charlotte could use some happiness in her life. But he's never committed to anything except his career, even choosing flying over an engagement years ago.
Can Charlotte navigate the healing process? Can Dawson finally make a commitment to a woman? Or will he and Charlotte decide a relationship is just too hard?
Two best friends, their hasty agreement, and the fake engagement that has the island of Getaway Bay in a tailspin...
Ashley Fox has known three things since age twelve: she was an excellent seamstress, what her future husband and wedding would be like, and that she'd never leave the island of Getaway Bay.
When her best friend and beach running partner, Burke Lawson, asks her for a favor she says yes. If she'd have known he was going to ask her to be his girlfriend-for-a-night because his father insists he "settle down" before turning over the multi-billion dollar flower company to him, Ash might have said no.
Burke has never told anyone about his past heart-crushing relationship, but he suspects Ash knows. She goes along with his player persona, but when he can't stop thinking about having her as his girlfriend for more than one day, he wonders if he can take this fake relationship into something real.
And when he accidentally blurts that they're engaged? Things get really interesting.
Zara Reddy comes from a very traditional Indian family, but she's chosen a different path than the generational restaurant. She performs in some of Getaway Bay's biggest shows as an acrobat and synchronized swimmer and takes other odd jobs—anything to stay below her mother's "where's your boyfriend?" radar.
When she lands a lucrative housesitting job in the biggest mansion on the bluffs above the beach, Zara thinks she'll get some rest, relaxation, and plenty of sun for the summer. But when she walks in, she comes face-to-face with Noah Wales, a prince from a tiny island in the Mediterranean.
The house definitely isn't empty. The man is positively scrumptious. Too bad he's demanding, spoiled, and running from the paparazzi. Noah and Zara argue about who'll be staying in the house, but in the end, they decide this could be a mutually beneficial arrangement. Zara can keep the press out of Noah's hair while he works on repairing his reputation by volunteering at Your Tidal Forever on a celebrity wedding. And Zara gets the summer away from everything, just the way she wanted.
Can Noah and Zara fight their feelings for each other as easily as they trade jabs? Or will this summer shape up to be the one that provides the romance they've each always wanted?
Shannon Bell has been the owner's assistant at Your Tidal Forever for five years. She's content in her single life and fearful of ever having an intimate relationship with a man due to previous abuse. She sees Jeremiah Yeates in line to get coffee every morning, and sure, he's the drop-dead doctor who works next door to her wedding planning office. But actually starting a relationship with him? Shannon's not so sure about that.
For a year now, Jeremiah has timed his coffee runs so he can run into Shannon. They've been friendly, but he doesn't know how to take his flirty to the next level—until she gets a flat tire in the parking lot and needs a ride to work. He's being honored at an island-wide event for his counseling work with children, and he needs a date. When he asks Shannon, she says yes.
As Shannon and Jeremiah get to know each other, the connection between them is undeniable. He's busy helping his aging parents with their yard work and dealing with his client load. Then the owner at Your Tidal Forever starts training Shannon to take over the whole business. Combined with her still-healing wounds from the past, can Shannon and Jeremiah make it to their own beach wedding? Or will their happily-ever-after go out with the tide?
