Wedding Bell Blues by
Call Number: CHICK LIT AMO
Moni Lawrence can't believe her good fortune! Thanks to an unexpected inheritance, she's leaving her tiny Virginia hometown in the dust and heading west to spread her wings and fly free. But she makes more of a splash than she intended in San Diego, when she's so distracted by the sight of a naked man, she drives her car through his fence and into his swimming pool. It's understandable, since Grant Forrest is so fine he'd turn any woman's head. And when it's been decided (in court!) that Moni has to personally repair the damage -- and is going to be around him a lot -- she knows she'd better keep her passion in check, or else she might end up uttering those deadly, reedom-suffocating words, "I do!"
Of course, Grant's been disastrously down that aisle twice already and isn't looking for Mrs. Number Three. Besides, he obviously thinks Moni's just a sexy, perky, destructive featherhead and serious trouble.
But what's that glint in his dreamy dark eyes?
