I popped into the bookstore recently and was thrilled to find two Carina Press paperbacks on the New Romance shelf. I read them both in digital, but I bought a copy of each of these fun contemporary romances to give away!
Matilda Geoffrey had risked it all for love.
She’d left Australia to be with Barry–the man who had swept her off her virtual feet. Now, wearing a wedding dress, she’s alone on Main Street in small-town Wisconsin, and things aren’t working out exactly as planned….
In town for his annual family visit, Marc Olsen had never seen a bride quite like Matilda–staring into a storefront window, holding a tottering wedding cake and looking desperately in need of a groom. He doesn’t have many warm feelings for his hometown, but meeting Matilda just as she discovers she’s been scammed by her online “fiancĂ©” stirs something in him.
Matilda is not the kind of woman Marc imagined himself with, and Marc is anything but the romantic hero that Matilda has always dreamed of. But as unlikely circumstances throw them together, can they let go of their misconceptions and risk their hearts for love?
anti-Cupid Bennett Westcott

their disaster of a courtship
Wedding planner Ivy Rhodes is the best in the business, and she’s not about to let a personal problem stop her from getting ahead. So when she’s asked to star in the reality TV show Planning for Love, it doesn’t matter that the show’s videographer happens to be a recent–and heartbreaking–one-night stand.
Bennett Westcott admits he didn’t handle his encounter with Ivy very well. But looking at her beautiful smile–and great body–through a camera lens every day? He can’t be faulted for suggesting they have some no-strings fun.
The more time they spend together, the more Ben realizes Ivy isn’t the wedding-crazed bridezilla he’d imagined. But if he doesn’t trust himself to make a relationship last, how can he convince Ivy to give him another chance?
How do you enter? Well, both books have a wedding theme, so what’s your favorite part of attending a wedding? The romantic atmosphere? The cake? Watching groomsmen hit on bridesmaids? For me, it’s the joy of seeing family members partying. I got to see my aunt dance on a bar to the Hawaii 5-0 theme song and, trust me, that’s an awesome memory to have.
The winner will be randomly drawn on Monday, October 28th at 10am eastern. International entries are allowed, I’ll be checking for comments erroneously marked as spam, your information is not saved for purposes nefarious or otherwise, and you’re not subscribed to anything. Just for fun.
