Charlotte Sutton has dreams as big as the Texas sky, and she’ll do anything to make them come true. She’s been Miss Lonestar State, a beauty consultant, a real estate agent, and has now set her sights on becoming Willow Bay’s most sought-after wedding planner. She’s never been in love or married but that doesn’t stop her from creating every bride’s fantasy day. It’s easy—all she does is plan her dream day. So, when devilishly handsome billionaire Bastien Richmond approaches her about arranging an over-the-top wedding, she’s all-in until she finds out he doesn’t have a bride.
Bastien Richmond is a lot of things, but marriage material isn’t one of them. He’s been a playboy all his life, until his sister passed away and left him the sole guardian of his niece. The only promise he’s ever made was that he’d take care of little Ivy, so when his mother threatens to fight for custody if he doesn’t marry, he tells her he’s already engaged. With the clock ticking, he needs to find a bride. Can the pretty little wedding planner deliver everything she promised? After all, she did say that no request was too large.
A handsome billionaire. A beautiful bride. A dream wedding. Is it a fairytale come true or a disaster in the making?
Bastien is determined to honor the last request of his sister and that is to ensure that her daughter Ivy has the upbringing she wants her to have and not the upbringing their mother wants Ivy to have. For that to happen he needs to marry and hiring Charlotte as the wedding planner is the first step but now he needs a bride.
Even though Charlotte has never found her happy ever after she is happy to help others find theirs. When Ivy’s future is in jeopardy Charlotte wants to help and that means becoming the bride that Bastien needs.
Not only was the relationship between Bastien and Charlotte heartwarming but the relationship that they each had with Ivy and they all had together was enchanting. Even though they may have started out as an arrangement they showed that they were meant to be so much more.
