Peek Inside The Wedding Hoax

Wedding gown designer Daisy Willows is desperate for an influx of cash to cover her mother’s homecare bills. With subscriptions to his father’s wedding magazine plummeting, playboy Cole Benton needs to find a way to stimulate sales, and fast. But then a renowned bridal show expo owner offers to bail them out—if they rekindle their failed relationship and plan the fake wedding of the century. Except, with all the ring shopping and kissing upon request, they’re having a hard time remembering that their big white wedding is a big white lie...

To save their companies, they’ll plan the fake wedding of the century…

Meet the bride…

Wedding dress designer Daisy Willows always imagined marrying the man of her dreams. The fantasy did notinclude a fake engagement or a fake wedding. Or that her ex, Cole Benton, would be the groom. But as her mom’s medical bills pile up, Daisy can’t refuse the help of a well-known bridal show expo owner…or his plan for the fake wedding of the century.

Meet the groom…

Cole Benton’s bridal magazine is on the verge of capsizing, taking Cole’s dream of an outdoor lifestyle magazine with it. So Cole agrees to the publicity stunt and becomes “engaged” to Daisy. But despite their searing-hot chemistry—both in public and in private—not everyone is buying the charade. And now the only way to save their skins and prove that their big white wedding isn’t a big white lie is to say “I do…”


"There's a lot of back and forth between Daisy and Cole but the chemistry is there and you want to cheer them on to make the fake stuff real. The Wedding Hoax by Heather Thurmeier gets four stars. ♥" ~ Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous

"Heather Thurmeier's hunky heroes and feisty heroines will have you laughing out loud, falling in love ... and coming back for more!" ~ Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author
