Lilac Bride

ConteWhen wedding plans go awry,

wily matchmakers come to the rescue . . .

 Katherine Kelly has been dreaming of her wedding since she was old enough to cut pictures out of magazines and glue them into her bridal binder. When Kaden, the handsome cowboy who holds her heart, proposes on a snowy Christmas Eve, she couldn’t envision anything more perfect or romantic. The spring date is set, all the nuptial details have been meticulously arranged, and she only has six weeks to go before the big day. Then, in a blink, her carefully formed plans begin to rapidly unravel. A freak snowstorm, rampaging rodents, and a lost wedding gown are only the beginning of the troubles they face.

Cowboy entrepreneur Kaden Ford still can’t quite believe Katherine Kelly agreed to marry him. She’s beautiful, elegant, intelligent, and the woman who fills his heart with joy. He doesn’t care if they get married in a cathedral or a cabin in the woods. All he wants is to spend his life loving Kat. But when faced with one overwhelming challenge after another, will love be enough to hold them together?

Find out in this sweet, charming, small-town romance full of laughter, love, and scheming octogenarian matchmakers.

“Kaden! The snow. It’s … horrible!” He heard Kat draw in a ragged breath. “I … it… Can you come over?”

“Hmm. I’ll have to see. It’s pretty slick out there and some of the drifts are knee-high in places. I’m not sure if …” Her sob made him stop teasing her.

“Look outside, baby. I’m already here.”

When the call disconnected, he slid out of the pickup and started toward the front door. He hadn’t even reached the porch steps when the front door swung open and Kat raced outside.

Kaden had to bite his cheek to keep from laughing at the lavender unicorn pajamas that proclaimed “happiness is just a giggle away,” worn with her fuzzy purple socks. There was no possibility Kat had purchased the pjs for herself.

“Nice jammies,” he said, jogging up the steps and opening his arms to her.
