Sylvie Smith is a wedding consultant
and party planner. Planning the wedding of a school chum
who runs out on the groom is not her idea of fun. Coming
face to face with Tom McFarlane, the jilted groom, makes
Sylvie’s heart pound. She feels bad for lusting after the
groom to be but when the smoke clears and Tom and Sylvie
each go their separate ways, a tiny being is left behind.
Sylvie winds up pregnant.
Months later, Tom returns to the
mansion he purchased to find a very pregnant Sylvie Smith
planning a dream wedding. Tom doesn’t realize that the
wedding is a publicity stunt and that the baby Sylvie is
carrying is actually his.
The Bride’s Baby is the type of book that has
made Harlequin Romance novels famous. You have the innocent
wedding planner and the enigmatic jilted and jaded groom.
They come together in a burst of unavoidable lust. I just
wish I could have been privy to the actual baby making. The
love scenes were very tame and while I yearned for more
explicitness, The Bride’s Baby was actually
entertaining. It was sweet romance at its best.
