Inspirational Romance | Romance Contemporary

From the author of Somebody Like You, a RITA finalist, and one of Publishers Weekly’s top ten books of 2014, comes the story of a woman who has everything for a perfect wedding—except the groom!

Winning an all-expenses paid Colorado destination wedding might seem like a dream come true for some people—but Caron Hollister and her boyfriend Alex Madison aren’t even engaged. How is she supposed to tell him she’s won their wedding and honeymoon when he hasn’t asked her to marry him? Being “perfect for one another” seems like the absolute best reason to get married. But what if their supposedly faultless relationship is merely a safe place to protect his secrets and a way to keep their families happy? After quitting her job, Caron accepts her best friend’s offer to visit Colorado. She needs to catch her breath. Who knows, maybe visiting the destination wedding site will make a future with Alex seem like a reality.

Kade Webster just landed the biggest deal of his life with his company, Webster Select Realty, participating in the Colorado Springs Tour of Homes. He never imagined he would run into the woman who broke his heart—Caron Hollister—right when his career is taking off. Seeing her again, Kade can’t help but wonder why Caron walked away from him years ago, leaving him with no explanation. When Kade learns his home stager won’t be able to help with the Tour of Homes, he vaults past all the reasons he should stay away from Caron, and offers her a temporary job helping him on the project. This time, their relationship is purely business.

Spending time with Kade has Caron questioning everything. The man intrigues her—at times infuriates her—and reminds her of what she lost. Has she been settling for what everyone expects of her? Just because others believe she and Alex are an ideal couple, does that mean they should get married? And how can Caron say “I do” to one man when she’s wondering “what if?” about another?

Re: Almost Like Being in Love

I think the most romantic moments can happen anywhere---they are usually totally unexpected.
(Sue Farrell 3:39pm June 28, 2016)

For me, the mountains! My now-husband proposed to me in
Rocky Mountain National Park, and we had our honeymoon in
the Canadian Rockies in Banff. We now live in the Denver
area. I'm definitely more of a mountain girl!
Lindsay Norton 4:08pm June 28, 2016)

If you open your heart then the most romantic moments can
be totally spontaneous. Since we live near the beach, I
will have to say the beach. There is just something about
those beautiful breath taking sunsets, salty air and
soaring seagulls.
Maryann Skaritka 4:20pm June 28, 2016)

My late husband and I loved to stream fish in remote
locations. They were always beautiful, secluded and so
Kathleen Bylsma 5:47pm June 28, 2016)

There's something magical about vacationing in the Cayman Islands, or
maybe it's simply leaving the daily stressors behind and focusing on
making the moment special.
Susan Sigler 6:01pm June 28, 2016)

For me, anytime is the right time. Romance is in the air so they say!!!
Bonnie Capuano 6:17pm June 28, 2016)

The most romantic moments can happen anywhere. The beach holds special
memories for me, so that is my favorite romantic place.
Karen Phelan 10:43pm June 28, 2016)

For me, the most romantic moments are anywhere we are that my husband of 36 years reaches out and takes my hand. It can be Sequoia NP, the beach or the supermarket parking lot. The reaching out after so many years touches me each time.
Sharon Mitchell 3:36am June 29, 2016)

In movies and romance novels....haha!
Lily Shah 7:42am June 29, 2016)

The beach is the place that captures romance.
Sharon Berger 2:21pm June 29, 2016)

it can happen in life
Dawna Preston 2:31pm June 29, 2016)

The most romantic moments can happen anywhere -- been married 50 yrs. this month - lots of romantic moments.
Shirley Younger 6:58pm June 29, 2016)

true love can be right under your nose and then if you lucly to find soem one to have for good it good the book look great i would love to read
Desiree Reilly 8:54pm June 29, 2016)

Where & when you least expect it!
Nancy Ludvik 10:41pm June 29, 2016)

We used to enjoy the mountains til the altitude started to bother me - but I would still say mountains.
Connie Sahn 10:59pm June 29, 2016)

I'm enjoying reading everyone's comments. And I agree that romance
can happen anywhere -- and I also agree that romance has no expiration
date, too! But I also think we can have our favorite romantic places ...
sometimes based on a memory, like a first date or where a proposal
happened. And yes, sometimes romance happens where and when you
least expect it!
Beth Vogt 11:35pm June 29, 2016)

I think the most romantic moments happen at the Eiffel Tower in France.
Jamie Stein 12:26pm June 30, 2016)

The best romantic moments can happen anywhere and that is what makes it a joy to read the different settings of books.
Leni Kaye 6:58pm June 30, 2016)

Since I love to be in the fresh outdoors, the mountains
are the perfect place for me. Some of my best dates have
been hiking the Cascades. The nice thing about where I
live is the views from where we hike - the Puget Sound
and San Juan Islands. You get the warmth of the sun, yet
shade is always near.
Terrill Rosado 9:18pm June 30, 2016)

I think the most romantic moments happen outside, in nature.
Connie Williamson 9:44pm June 30, 2016)

For me it would be the mountains. Both my husband and I love the
mountains. We grew up in New York's Adirondack Mountains with a view of
Vermont's Green Mountains and New Hampshire's White Mountains. When we
first got married we lived in northern Maine near their mountains. We lived in
Colorado Springs with Pike's Peak the view from our deck. We now live in the
Blue Ridge Mountains. It is in our blood and we love mountains.
That being said, we have had some wonderful times on the coast. We are not
sandy beach sun lovers. We love the rocky coasts of the Northeast and
Northwest. There is a rugged beauty to it. It has that in common with the
mountains which is probably why we like it.
Patricia Barraclough 10:37pm July 1, 2016)

The most romantic locations can be anywhere and unexpected , like some one you've known all your life but never thought about in the romantic way . Unexpected is the most romantic .
Joan Thrasher 9:44am July 2, 2016)

It can happen anywhere.
Anita Seymour 3:09pm July 2, 2016)

The most romantic moments can happen when you least expect them. Doesn't
matter where you are, it matters with who you are with.
Jessica Slater 3:14pm July 3, 2016)

Spontaneously! One never knows when the occasion will arise.
Kathleen Bylsma 4:06pm July 3, 2016)

My dream has always been to own a cabin on a mountaintop overlooking the ocean, it's hard for me to pick a fave as I love them both so much. I've lived alone for 25+ years now, so my romantic moments were long ago. However, I did honeymoon in the Smokey Mountains!!

Thanks for the fun post, Beth - and the giveaway opportunity!!
Bonnie Roof 7:54pm July 3, 2016)

I think they just happen no matter where you are it is what
you make of them . Thank you for the giveaway
Peggy Clayton 12:45pm July 4, 2016)

Romantic moments can take place anywhere if the right two people are together.
Anna Speed 1:07pm July 4, 2016)

Romance can happen anywhere. You just have to be open and
in the right frame of mind with the right person.
Cynthia Powers 4:37pm July 4, 2016)

Romantic happenings can be anywhere or any place.
