About the Author
Jessica Hart had a haphazard early career that took her around the world in a variety of interesting but very lowly jobs, all of which have provided inspiration on which to draw when it comes to the settings and plots of her stories. She eventually stumbled into writing as a way of funding a PhD in medieval history, but was quickly hooked on romance and is now a full-time author based in York.

Harlequin Romance # 3987 - Nov2007
Bridegroom Boss series - Book #2
Lucy West has always lead a carefree bohemian lifestyle; flitting from one job to another and falling out of love as quickly as she fell in love. She loves her job as station cook on an outback ranch in Australia; that is until Guy Dangerfield arrives. Guy needed a break from his responsibilities as CEO of his family run bank, and the amicable breakup with his latest girl. A holiday with his cousin Hal was just the ticket. There was something about Hal's new cook that compelled him to tease and flirt with her. When it's urgent that Lucy return to England, Guy who is already booked for his return, arranges for Lucy to accompany him. When they arrive in London, Guy puts her up for a few days, and he challenges her to find a "real" job, not a silly temp job in a coffee shop, but a real grownup job. Lucy shocks him by landing a job in his bank. And the adventure begins.
After some prompting by Guy to take a good hard look at her life, Lucy realizes she's always had her older sister to look out for her and that she's never committed to anything. As her attraction for Guy becomes stronger, she wants to very much be a girl that he can take "seriously". Ms. Hart wrote this one strictly from Lucy's point of view, so it was difficult to read Guy. His ability to hide his feelings is part of the plot, but not one that worked well for me. I would have enjoyed this one much more, had I had a few glimpses of what he was thinking or feeling. This is an enjoyable book, with a few laugh-out-loud moments.
For Meredith's story read --- Outback Boss, City Bride by Jessica Hart - Harlequin Romance # 3975 - September 2007 - Bridegroom Boss series - Book #1
Lucy West loves everything about her job at Wirrindago, an Australian cattle station where she's employed as a cook and housekeeper. She's even in love with one of the stockman. The arrival of her sister with the request that Lucy return to England to be at the bedside of a friend who's in a coma means leaving it all behind. Having to leave Australia for England is bad enough but having her antagonist Guy accompany her is almost more than she can take.
Guy Dangerfield is a successful English businessman who's visiting his cousin at Wirrindago. He takes great pleasure in annoying Lucy, including calling her Cinderella. He's perfectly aware that she fancies herself in love with Kevin but doesn't let that deter him. Guy senses that she's just drifting through life and accompanying her back to England presents him with the opportunity to get to know her better and issue a challenge that she accepts. After all, proving him wrong is a priority.
Lucy isn't at all happy about returning to England and aside from the time she'll spend at the hospital at Richard's bedside she doesn't know what she'll do, or even where she'll be staying. Guy points out that she's always counted on others to take care of the details and maybe it's time for her to take care of herself. Guy offers to let her stay at his place but Lucy doesn't want to impose. She gladly accepts Guy's challenge to find a `real' job and soon finds herself a job as a receptionist at Dangerfield & Dunn. She discovers that she actually enjoys the job and as an added benefit, she gets to see Guy every day when he's going to or from his office.
Their `friendship' evolves and takes on a romantic nature. Circumstances, friends and family as well as a few well-meaning lies result in some unexpected circumstances from which they're going to find it very difficult to extricate themselves.
After reading OUTBACK BOSS, CITY BRIDE, I couldn't wait to find out what would happen with Meredith's sister Lucy. There's so much antagonism between Lucy and Guy that I eagerly read through each new scene anticipating what would happen between them. Jessica Hart's APPOINTMENT AT THE ALTAR provides the perfect ending to the BRIDEGROOM BOSS duo and give readers their much desired happily ever after with a few twists and some comical situations along the way. I'll definitely be watching for more Jessica Hart books in the future as well as buying up some of her backlist titles.
