Previously published as Wedding Survivor When a wedding planner’s first gig teams her up with a sexy stuntman, will she crash and burn...or be airlifted to love? Behind Eli McCain’s Texas drawl lies an extreme sports lover, a former Hollywood stuntman...and a broken heart. Left at the altar a year ago, he’s not happy when Thrillseekers Anonymous, the extreme sports club he cofounded, gets into the celebrity wedding business. Especially since Marnie Banks, the wedding coordinator with the stunning smile and sexy curves, never stops talking. Marnie, meanwhile, hopes planning an A-list celebrity wedding will be her ticket to success. If only her glamorous clients weren’t constantly throwing outrageous demands at her. And if only Eli wasn’t so guarded — and so jaw-droppingly handsome. But when the wedding turns from extreme to extremely disastrous, Eli and Marnie must work together against the elements, their bickering clients, and their own smoldering attraction to save the day. Will the sparks flying between them ignite into something real and passionate...or will they both end up burned?

In the glittering first of a new contemporary romance series, London (Material Girl) gives us the pleasure of a celebrity tabloid without the guilt. At the request of Eli McCain, a stuntman/adventure travel coordinator, newbie wedding planner Marnie Banks tries her hand at orchestrating the vows of self-obsessed movie stars Olivia Dagwood and Vincent Vittorio. As if organizing a million dollar–plus wedding in the remote San Juan Mountains isn't hard enough, Marnie also has to decipher whether sexy, commitment-phobic Eli appreciates her spunk—or just her curvaceous, size 10 body. London's quick dialogue and swift changes of scene are smooth, and it's impossible not to anticipate—and then savor—the bridezilla's inevitable meltdown in the face of a wedding disaster. London succeeds in painting gender without using too heavy a hand: Eli uses a kitchen towel, calling it a "rag," to wipe up spilled beer, and Marnie polls all the women in her life about whether Eli's "into" her. A few clichés slip in: Eli shies from the "complicated," and Marnie insists she truly "knows" Eli. In movie-speak, the novel is xXx meets Legally Blonde: witty and sweet with plenty of sparks. (Oct.)
