Back in April of this year, across a restaurant table, Bella Andre leaned in and shared with our business creativity group that her Four Weddings and a Fiasco series (which she writes as Lucy Kevin) would be getting its own Kindle World. And since sweet romance is one of the things I write, she asked me if I’d like to contribute a novella. Would I..! However, if I was to make my production schedule, between April and September stood a Magnificent Devices book and a Healing Grace book. A busy summer ensued, and when those were completed, I got busy dreaming of what might happen when … somebody gave away a wedding.
The result was a novella of 30,000 words, Four Weddings and a Fiasco: The Wedding Scandal, out today and exclusive to Amazon!
A giveaway wedding … a runaway bride …
Three days before their wedding at the Rose Chalet, actor Drake Devlin tells veterinary technician Lynette Brunelli that he’s given away ceremony, flowers, catering—the whole wedding—to a needy couple as a publicity stunt for the Dare To Wish Foundation. Which would have been fine if his next sentence hadn’t ended their engagement! So Lynette boards a plane to Venice, determined to take her honeymoon alone.
Best man Grant Hiller is bound for Venice on the same flight for a photography assignment, appalled that his friend has treated this beautiful woman in such a shocking way. When she finds out he has nowhere to stay and invites him to share the gorgeous palazzo on the Grand Canal, he can’t resist the chance to get to know Lynette better. But it’s only after he helps her treat an injured bird that he realizes just how special she is … and how much he wants her in his life.
But scandal has followed them all the way to Italy and back to San Francisco. Will her past with Drake come between them forever? Or will there be a wedding at the Rose Chalet after all?
