Book Summary:

As far as Kelsey Wilcox is concerned, her last cowboy was the last cowboy.
Kelsey Wilcox has had enough of cowboys. After the last one broke her heart, Kelsey traded in her boots for flip-flops, and the open range for a bistro on the beach. Her life on Corpus Christi’s gorgeous beach might be a little lonely, but at least it’s heartbreak-free. At least until her cousin’s beachside wedding bucks Kelsey right back into the rodeo.
When unlucky-in-love Brent Corbin packed his groomsman’s tux for his friend’s wedding, he brought his boots and belt buckle with him. Brent isn’t exactly looking for love, but when he sees what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he jumps right in to rescue her.
So Kelsey finds herself plucked from the sea—and certain-drowning—by a gorgeous groomsman . . . in soaked cowboy boots. She’s quick to say thanks, but no thanks.
Brent dedicates the weekend to pursuing Kelsey—and Kelsey spends the weekend trying to deny an obvious match. She’s as stubborn as a wild horse, but Brent’s determination may tame her yet.



I have really enjoyed this series of novellas.  At around  100 pages in length they stand alone and are perfect when I just have just a couple hours and want to get through a book. They are long enough for story and character development but short enough to read in one sitting.

An August Bride is one of my favorites of the series.  It’s Christian fiction but there is no preaching and it is just an great little romance.  I enjoyed the humor and fun as Brent and Kelsey’s relationship developed with the help of the matchmaking Posse.

If you enjoy clean romance with a happily ever after ending then pick up An August Bride.
