Blurb: A sweet charade takes an unexpected turn!
Dearly beloved, we are (not) gathered together…Maid of honor Zurie Tillbridge has been working secretly with best man Mace Calderone to plan her cousin Tristan’s wedding to a well-known actress. To keep their wedding plans from leaking to the press, Zurie and Mace must pretend they are the ones getting married. Cake tasting and flower arranging seem like harmless fun…until wary workaholic Zurie realizes she’s feeling something real for her fake fiancé…
Mace checked in on Zurie again. She was knocked out cold.
An hour later, he had showered, shaved, brushed his teeth and dressed in a casual long-sleeve black pullover, jeans and dark Lugz boots. If Zurie wasn’t alert enough to drive, he could take her home. After dropping her off, he’d still have time to get to the department and change into his uniform before the start of his shift at nine.
In the living room, Zurie snuggled into the pillow and mumbled in her sleep.
From the smile on her face, she was having a really good dream. Too bad he had to wake her. Crashing on his couch for the night while he was at work was an option, but knowing her, she’d refuse.
Mace leaned down and shook her gently by the shoulder, but she didn’t wake up. Not wanting to startle her, he spoke softly. “Hey, Zurie.”
Blinking sleepily up at him, she laid her palm to his chest, and her warmth seeped into him. Her full lips parted with a sigh. “Mace…” Zurie raised her head, curved her hand to his nape and kissed him.
