In this thrilling novel of romantic suspense, Linda Howard cordially invites us to an elaborate wedding—one in which rings will never be exchanged, kisses will never be shared, and the bride will never see the light of day, because a killer has been waiting under a 

Jaclyn Wilde is a wedding planner who loves her job—usually. But helping Carrie Edwards with her Big Day has been an unrelenting nightmare. Carrie is a bridezilla of mythic nastiness, yet the unpleasant task at hand turns seriously criminal when Carrie is brutally murdered and everyone involved with the ceremony is accusing one another of doing the deed. Assigned to the case, Detective Eric Wilder finds that there’s too much evidence pointing toward too many suspects. Compounding his problems is Jaclyn, now a prime suspect, with whom he shared one deeply passionate night before Carrie’s death. As the heat intensifies between Eric and Jaclyn, a cold-blooded murderer moves dangerously close. And this time the target is not a bride but one particularly irresistible wedding planner, unaware of a killer’s vow.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Linda Howard's Prey.


  • Great Fun Story

    By Dr Mom 29
    As an event planner this was a fun story that I could really relate to. The language was carefree and the story line plausible. I highly recommend it for a light read.
  • Great story!

    By Regimo
    Fun and excellent read! Just enough heat to keep the temperature hot but not so much I felt like I was reading a sex manual. It was enjoyable start to finish and I already miss Eric and Jaclyn!
  • Mislead!

    By Geomaryp
    Based on the reviews I bought this book hoping that Ms. Howard had gotten back to her previous format - boy was I mislead! It seems Ms. Howard doesn't like character development anymore, nor does it seem like there is much worthwhile interaction between the hero and heroine. Also, as a high school teacher I'm constantly bombarded by foul language and crude comments so I'm not really happy when the male hero of my adult romance novel is as vulgar as my high school students! He is an adult isn"t heI think I'll stick to rereading Ms Howard"s older books where there was actually a love story interwoven amongst all the intrigue and the hero had a smudge more decorum.
  • Finally getting back to what I loved about her books

    This book takes me back to Dream Man and Mr. perfect and all the books around that time. Linda Howard is finally getting back to what I loved about her books after several that I didn't really care for. Glad I stuck in there.
