Kathie's Review:

This is a sweet little romance. The kind where you settle in next to the fireplace with a cup of cocoa with whipped cream and read until it's done.

Kate has been secretly in love with her co-worker Brian for three years. She's finally going to tell him. But before she can gets the words out, he announces that he's heading to Vegas to marry his high school sweetheart. Kate is shocked. Then she decides to just fly there and stop the wedding. That is the extent of her plan. 

With a shout, she interrupts the wedding...and then realizes Brian is not the groom. You'd think the groom would be pretty upset that his bride just walked out, but he's not. He quickly asks Kate to help him out. He needs to be married by the time he's thirty, and that's two days away.

Kate figures she missed Brian's wedding, she's not really happy with her life, and she has a pile of debt to pay down, due to the medical bills she accrued while trying to help her grandmother. So...she says yes, she'll marry the groom, Chad, in exchange for a cool million. Why not, right?

Chad doesn't tell Kate everything, and she keeps being surprised. First by the paparazzi, then when they meet his parents, and the fact that Brian not might be as married as she thought he was.

This story is very much like a Harlequin. That's praise, by the way! You know when you pick one up you are in for an hour of two of romance and an HEA. That's what we get here and I did enjoy it. BTW, I really liked Chad's dad, Hank! 

I'll be looking for more from Ms. Williams in the future.
