Marriage. Commitment. Forever. These words go hand in hand when you think about
weddings and they conjure up images of white dresses, tuxedos, friends, family,
beautiful locations, nit-picked details and, of course, heightened emotions.
And Iím not just talking about the wedding party.
Having been to my fair share of weddings as part of the party and as a guest I
can say that without a doubt that there is all kinds of crazy that happens at
My own wasnít without itís hiccups. Our attempt at a low key, drama free
celebration turned into anything but. Besides tripping as I walked (or should I
say stumbled) down the aisle and bursting into nervous giggles as I tried to say
my vows, my new brothers in law who donít see eye to eye at the best of times
couldnít keep it together and got into an argument at the reception which then
turned into a fight which of course ended up involving the food. If that wasnít
enough, our escape from the family drama turned into one of a different kind
when we came home to find that our house had been covered with toilet paper and
graffiti by an angry and vindictive ex. Not exactly the wedding of anyoneís dreams.
So, yeah, when I talk about weddings that stray way off the plotted path, I have
a little insight on the subject.
What I love to write about when it comes to nuptials is the complex mix of
emotions everyone has going into a wedding whether or not they are the ones
taking the plunge. Thereís just so much of it, good or bad and even sometimes
mixed. How that not be worth some exploring?
To date, Iíve written about two destination weddings from the point of view of
In FUEL TO
THE FIRE, the hero and heroine are exes brought together serendipitously,
and quite contentiously, by a wedding. As things get physical and they begin to
unravel their past, old emotions come into play. Secrets come out. The things
theyíve believed for years change. They, and their relationship, change. The
story is complicated and the characters go through so much to get their happy
This time around Iíve written a story thatís much lighter, fun and contained in
In PLAYING DIRTY, Olivia
and Rafe are in Brazil on a picturesque beach at a luxurious, sun drenched
resort as part of their respective best friendsí wedding party. Obligated to be
there, they go along with their friendsí obvious and rather embarrassing
attempts to bring the estranged couple back together. All the while, even with
all the scheming, Olivia and Rafe enjoy themselves. All the time spent together
flirting and the teasing is bound to bring up some old feelings, right? Thatís
what their friends are hoping!
It was so much fun (and maybe a little cathartic) to write a couple who are
having a good, if strange, time at such a beautiful wedding where everything
goes to plan!
