A new haircut. A new name. A new start as Crookshollow’s premier wedding planner. I, Willow Summers, am finally free from my mother’s oppressive home. No one in Crookshollow knows who I am or where I came from, and I intend to keep it that way. As long as I plaster a smile on my face and pull off perfect weddings for my clients, no one ever has to know that I’m broken. That is, until Irvine Baird gets his claws into me. The smoking hot, ten thousand miles out of my league Scottish hottie wants me, the good girl virgin with the dark past. No one’s ever wanted me before. There’s only one problem: he’s a werewolf. The last time I met a werewolf, I lost my leg. I should be running a mile from Irvine. Instead, I keep falling into his arms. He makes me uncomfortable. He sets my body on fire. He makes me want to spill my deepest, darkest secrets. Irvine terrifies me. But whenever we touch, sparks fly. There’s an ache inside me that only he can satisfy. I know I can’t have a happily ever after. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun together. The old me would never have tried a casual fling, but the new Willow can totally handle it. Right? Right? Wedding bells are ringing for some of your favourite characters in Crookshollow, but Irvine Baird has his sights on the one lass he can never have.
