Secondhand Bride As the poor relation in the rich and powerful Carnarvon family, Ashley Carnarvon is used to hand-me-downs. But getting handed down a wedding dress that’s cursed? Okay, the curse is bad enough, but even worse, the outrageously expensive gown was designed for a taller, slimmer bride, one who ran away before the wedding – which gets back to the curse…
At twenty-five, Ashley’s not sure what she wants to do with her life. When Eric Van Hoffendam, the slacker in his rich, powerful family asks her to marry him, she figures why not. Eric doesn’t look down on her or demand anything of her. Life with him would be easy, and Ashley likes things to be easy.
Bennett Saeger has a bad habit of making his life harder than it needs to be. Trying to make it as a Hollywood screenwriter is hard enough, but when a movie star stages a very public suicide attempt over unrequited love for him, the media frenzy is so bad he’s forced to go into hiding. Luckily, the pool house is free on the property of his family friends, the Carnarvons. He’ll be out of sight and hard at work on his next screenplay. Even better, he’ll be far away from women.
Sound great. Until he sees Ashley Carnarvon. Teenage Ashley had a world class crush on him. But that was then years ago, and boy, has she grown up in eye-popping ways. Good thing she’s engaged, or so Ben thinks until he meets her loser fiancé. The guy is all wrong for Ashley. But how can Ben show her how special she is without anyone getting the wrong idea about his intentions. Especially him.
Five brides and one (possibly cursed) wedding gown. Will any of them actually wear the designer creation down the aisle?
