The Backup Bride Proposal

Romance Military | Western

The BACKUP BRIDE PROPOSAL is the fourth book in Jaci Burton’s Boots and Bouquet series. All the Bellini sisters who operate the family winery and wedding venue business have found love and now it’s time for their employee, wedding planner Mae Wallace. Mae is not looking for a relationship after being burned by her cheating fiancée a few years ago. But she didn’t plan for a movie to be filmed at the Bellini Winery starring sexy Kane August and being assigned as the liaison to the production crew. When the female lead is delayed, Mae fills in as a body double so the filming doesn’t fall behind. The chemistry between her and down-to-earth Kane is off the charts. As Kane and Mae get to know each other, she’ll have to decide if getting close to Kane is worth possibly getting hurt. This book can be read as a continuation of the series or a stand-alone. There is no mention of the circumstances endured by the characters from the other books in the series but they are significantly featured enough for fans to see all their favorites again (including Breanna and Finn’s wedding and Jason and Erin’s new baby). Sweet and a little spicy this is a quick read that feels like a Hallmark movie.

SUMMARY

The next installment in the bestselling Boots and Bouquets series from New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton

Bellini Weddings has agreed to allow a production company to film a movie at Red Moss Vineyards. It will be great PR for both the vineyard and the wine and wedding businesses. Mae Wallace, who works for the Bellini family, is thrilled with the possibility of new business. What she isn’t thrilled with is actor Kane August, who she finds crashing one of the weddings. He tells her it’s research for the movie, but she finds him overconfident and annoying.

Kane August is rarely surprised by anything—until he meets Mae Wallace. She’s sharp, just a bit on the snarky side, and the most refreshing woman he’s had the pleasure of meeting. She constantly challenges him, and he can’t remember having this much fun on a movie set. He takes every opportunity to spend time with her, peeling back layers until he gets to the heart of who this amazing person really is. And, unexpectedly, he realizes that he’s letting her in, too, something he hasn’t done with anyone before. However, they live very different lives and he’ll need to be careful around Mae, because she’s someone he could see a future with. But can she see the same thing?

When Kane takes her to his family’s ranch in Texas, Mae discovers a whole new side to him, learning about the heart and soul of a kind and gentle man. And as they grow closer, her guard goes up. Once burned, she has no intention of falling in love ever again, despite this very hot and sexy guy who’s trying his best to turn her world upside down and work his way through the steely wall she’s built. Kane is determined to show her he’s the one man she can trust with her heart. If only Mae will allow herself to fall.
