August is Wedding Month at Harlequin ~ Giveaway

 Check out the great International Wedding books that Harlequin has coming out this month!

Marriage Agreement

Between Daniel Garrett and Kenna Scott

Stay married one year

Fool the family

No sex!

To claim his trust fund and launch a new career, Daniel needs to be married…and no one can tick all the "wifely" boxes like Kenna. And since she's his best friend, the celibacy part should be a piece of (wedding) cake! Or so Daniel thinks…until he hears the words that make him freeze: "You may kiss your bride." One official kiss has the former confirmed bachelor reeling…and one unplanned night with his virgin bride has him staggering. Will it be the end of an era for the two best friends, or will a surprise pregnancy make the two become three—for keeps?


I so love pretending stories.  And this one combines that pretending with friends turned lovers which I also adore.  

Kenna and Daniel have been friends for ten years, best friends.  It seems like an easy thing to do - pretend to be married and claim what they both want.  But living together isn't as easy as either of them thought.  The closeness they have always felt turns to sparks that they can't ignore.  

Both are afraid of ruining their friendship but as their feeling deepen and Daniel deals with the fact that his bride is so inexperienced, things change.  When surprises jolt them, Kenna gives Daniel what she thinks he wants but she may have never been more wrong. 

They are adorable together.  They can't keep their hands off each other.  They miss each other when they are apart.  Daniel wants her in his arms in the mornings.  Kenna wants him touching her forever.  But both of them resist.  It's so cute and I completely enjoyed watching them figure out what others around them had know for years.  

This is a fast read.  Read it in an afternoon.  If you love the pretending stories or the friends to lovers stories, then this one is a great pick.  It's great romance.

Crown Prince, Pregnant Bride by Kate Hardy

One look into the stranger's dark, mysterious eyes and Indigo Moran knows she's made a mistake in taking his picture. But who does he think he is? A prince? That night Indigo discovers that's exactly who he is: Crown Prince Lorenzo Torelli of Melvante. 

To Lorenzo, duty lies with his country—he can't offer Indigo forever. The trouble is…once he's kissed her, one unforgettable night will never be enough. And now Indigo's little secret is about to turn his carefully ordered world upside down!,%201
