Book Description

THE BAD LUCK WEDDING DRESS was a finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA award!

They call it the Bad Luck Wedding Dress, and now Jenny Fortune's
dressmaking clientele has begun staying away in droves. Yet, Jenny is
sure that she can turn her luck around if she wears the dress herself at
her very own wedding--all she needs is a groom.

Trace McBride is
an attractive widower raising three little girls--or outlaws--and he badly
needs a woman's loving touch. Jenny isn't sure she knows how to win a
marriage proposal, but she is willing to take off her spectacles, let
down her golden hair, and even give flirtation a try. When
seduction turns to passion, Jenny risks everything--even her life--in
the hope that she'll be lucky in love.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heartwarming, thoroughly charming romance December 19, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
...
Jenny Fortune is struggling to keep her seamstress business afloat. It seems that all three of Big Jack Bailey's daughters have met up with a streak of bad luck after wearing her masterpiece wedding dress. Being a suspicious fool, Big Jack Bailey determines MissFortune (as he dubs her) has placed a curse on the dress and sets out to destroy Jenny and her business.
Trace McBride, local saloon owner, widower and father of three wild girls also known as the "McBride Menaces", rents out the space Jenny uses for her business. Because Trace is extremely busy trying to earn money so he can build his girls' a dream house and gain back his respectability as an Architect the girls begin to spend a lot of time with Jenny and decide she is going to be their new Momma. Continually placing their women weary Father and Jenny in constant contact by their antics the Menaces are determined to force this stubborn pair to fall in love.
Jenny figures the only way to turn her luck around is by getting married in her own "Bad Luck Wedding Dress" and proving to her clientele that the dress and her creations aren't cursed. Trace seems like the most likely candidate, unfortunately, he has been seriously burned by his former wife and is dead set against remarrying. But his daughters, who are even more stubborn than he is, have other plans . . .
This story is filled with endearing characters. There's a wounded hero crying out for love to heal his tortured heart, a charming, understanding and unpredictable heroine and three adorable little girls who add touches of humor and warmth to this terrific love story. If you're like me and like your books brimming over with emotion, sensuality, tenderness and laughter you will cherish this book

5.0 out of 5 stars It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling... August 1, 2005
By Elaina
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Geralyn Dawson is quickly becoming one of my favorite romance authors. After reading THE BAD LUCK WEDDING CAKE and THE BAD LUCK WEDDING NIGHT, I was dying to read the first installment, THE BAD LUCK WEDDING DRESS. And to my pleasure, I was not disappointed.

THE BAD LUCK WEDDING DRESS tells the story of the seamstress Jenny Fortune who moves to Fort Worth to pursue her dream of dressmaking. Her shop does very well until the superstitious Big Jack Bailey accuses Jenny of making a "bad luck wedding dress," which he claims caused the accidents of two of his daughters when they wore the supposed cursed dress. Jenny's business falls on hard times, for the people of Ft. Worth have no desire to buy bad luck dresses.

Enter widower Trace McBride. The father of the three McBride Menaces, Trace is in need of a mother for his rambunctious daughters. He soon realizes that Jenny would be the best choice for the job. The two agree to marry - Trace gets a mother for his children and Jenny gets financial support after her business does not bring in enough money.

And, of course, the pair fall in love. Jenny helps to heal Trace's demons, and she, in turn, receives the family she's always longed for.

THE BAD LUCK WEDDING DRESS is an adorable story. Trace McBride is the kind of man any woman would dream of having: kind, tender, yet all too human. Jenny is fiesty yet bighearted. The chemistry between the couple leaps off the pages. The McBride Menaces, although naughty, are sweethearts who just need a mother's tender touch. By the end of the novel, you'll be sighing in contentment and brimming with the infamous "warm fuzzing feeling." This book is just that wonderful.

Elaina S.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Luck Wedding Dress April 22, 2009
By Karen
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was my good luck to read Geralyn Dawson's first in a series of Bad Luck Brides. I have read the trilogy of the menaces when they were adults and thoroughly enjoyed their childhood antics in trying to get a new mama. All of the characters were well developed. I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad Luck for the Author! January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book wasn't what I was expecting it to be. I'm not usually much of a fan of romance novels. I'm also usually not first in line for Victorian era books at all. This one was such a unique combination, done in such a charming fashion with creative twists and quirks that I found myself smiling as I read it, and smile now remembering. What a very nice surprise. Definitely a writer to watch for.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Romance with a little Humor! January 29, 2012
By Aran
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This little romance was charming and laugh out loud in some places. I loved the character of a heroine with some backbone who knew what she wanted and was strong enough to fight for it, whether it was her business, or later, her husband. The humor in the writing was what caught me by surprise and elevated this romance from merely another read into an absolute delight! I will definitely read more from the same author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as entertaining the second time. April 14, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not your typical cookie-cutter romance novel where they fall for each other, hate each other, FINALLY sleep together and then live happily ever after. The typical ending is halfway through the book, and then it gets interesting. We laughed, we cried, we had a wonderful time, this book and I. Even the second time around. Cliches are true too, ya know. And this book makes them refeshing.
