Book Description

Unlike her two sisters who followed their dreams to the altar,Kathryn Bright Goodale doesn't want to be a bride.

What she needs is to win the Great Centennial Race now that her late husband has left her penniless. So Kate reluctantly turns to the famous adventurer Lord James Bennett for help. Once, long ago, James stole from her a lingering, forbidden, and unforgettable kiss. And now the lady wants the incorrigible rogue to stick strictly to business -- and is troubled that shemay not be able to resist him if he does not.

James, too, can never forget that wild, passionate moment in Kate's garden, and he's certain the rigors of a far-reaching adventure will be too much for her. But the fetching young widow surprises him with her bold determination and a courage that compliments her breathtaking sensuality. Might Lord James be competing for a more elusive, yet far more valuable, prize: the hand and heart of Kathryn Bright Goodale?

About the Author

A former science geek, Susan Kay Law turned to romance writing as a career because it was the perfect excuse to avoid housework and continue spending all her time doing what she really loved: reading and daydreaming. Also because she was really bad at sitting in a swamp at 5 A.M. in forty-degree weather and tracking bird behavior.

Winner of the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart Award and a Waldenbooks Bestseller award, twice nominated for a RITA Award, she confesses that the biggest surprise of her career was when this small town Midwestern preacher's kid was named to New Woman magazine's list of "the steamiest writers of women's fiction." Her greatest joy, however, is spending her days thoroughly outnumbered by four of the best males on the planet -- her husband and three sons. She currently lives in Minnesota, and plans to be a ski bum in her next life.

By Gemma
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book because I'd enjoyed the other books in the "Marrying Miss Bright" series, THE BAD MAN'S BRIDE (which wasn't a keeper, but a good one-time read), and MARRY ME, which was a keeper. So of course I sought out the last book A WEDDING STORY, which is the story of Kate, the very proper oldest Bright sister.

I expected to love this book. I was so surprised that it did nothing for me. Oh, Susan Kay Law's writing style is enjoyable and humorous, as always. The dialogue is witty and fun, her descrptions are vivid without being overly wordy and her prose is easy-to-read without being "dumbed down". So what was the problem?

The characters! I couldn't like either the hero or the heroine. Kate came across as snotty and cold. James was more of a carboard cutout then a person. I didn't feel like I knew what drove him. I had no more insight into him by a third of the way into the book then I'd gleaned from the first ten pages. Normally, Kay Law creates wonderful characters that leap out of the book into your heart, but that just didn't happen here.

The antagonism between James and Kate came from an encounter years before (a romance staple). The problem? The encounter was a memorable kiss between them--while Kate was still married to Dr. Goodale. Granted, James didn't realize that she was married until after he kissed her, but she did. The author tried to gloss it over as one of those encounters that happened so quickly that Kate didn't have a chance to explain or stop James before he kissed her, but it still left a bad taste in my mouth. She didn't love her husband, but it was still cheating, and made it harder for me to like Kate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful adventure romance January 26, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Twelve years ago, Kathryn Bright Goodale shared an unforgettable kiss with Lord James Bennett. Unfortunately, she was married at the time, and James was one of her husband's best friends. Kate has carried the guilt of that kiss for years, and with it, the fantasies of Lord Bennett that kept stirring in her mind.
Now that her husband has passed away, Kate finds herself penniless. All the money went to his children, and Kate, as their stepmother, was left nothing. When she stumbles upon an invitation addressed to her late husband inviting him to participate in "The Great Centennial Race", she's intrigued, particularly since the winner is to receive the grand sum of fifty thousand dollars - a great deal of money in 1899.
But Kate realizes she can't embark on such an adventure on her own. Swallowing her pride, she approaches James, and asks for his help. He's known as a famous adventurer, and although his last expedition ended in his partner's death, James grudgingly accepts Kate's proposal. As the two of them set out to win the grand prize, the passion they shared so many years ago begins to resurface, and soon, Kate and James realize they're in for an experience that may result in a prize far more appealing than money.
Despite its rather misleading title, A WEDDING STORY is a fantastic adventure romance. The wedding itself only takes place in the last chapter, and even then it's mostly glossed over. As in all romances, the relationship between the hero and heroine is key, and it does culminate in marriage. However, the focus of the story is on "The Great Centennial Race", which is an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones.
It was refreshing to read about a heroine who was able to physically keep up with the hero through all the trials they had to experience as they embarked on the race.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing!!! November 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointing!! After reading the other two books in this series I was very disappointed in this one. It was very boring. That is the best way I know to describe it. It was not the least bit interesting until about 90 percent of the book was finished. The only reason I gave it 3 stars was because the book was well written. As far as entertainment goes I would have given it only 2 stars. The first two books were so entertaining that it made it even more of a let down to read this one. I can't imagine what happened to the author while writing this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST OF THE THREE December 6, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was not overly impressed with MARRY ME and BAD MAN'S BRIDE so I'm not sure why I picked up this book. Boy! Am I glad I did!! This is by far the best of her Bright sister books. It's a keeper! Will definitely order some more books by this author with hopes of finding the same kind of magic.
