Can a baby bring them back together?
Former model Caroline Kushner has the perfect life—a gorgeous husband, money and an amazing marriage. At least, she did have a great marriage. She and Jonathon aren’t exactly speaking right now, but not because her husband hasn’t tried everything from covert meetings to kidnapping!

Then Jane meets her new boss and she's not sure her foolproof plan was so smart after all. Spencer Tate's a hot one, and suddenly she's more than ready to shed the wedding ring…and her clothes!
Spencer's not surprised to hear what happened to Jane at her last job. She's a gorgeous woman, and he's more than a little tempted himself. Fortunately, that wedding ring she wears reminds him every day—and night—that she's off-limits. But when he learns the truth about Jane's marriage, Spencer decides it's time to bring some pleasure to their working relationship!
A propos de l'auteur :
L’histoire de Nancy Warren a de quoi faire rêver les lectrices de romance – et aspirantes auteurs – du monde entier. C’est en participant à un concours d’écriture qu’elle a été repérée par les éditions Harlequin, qui lui ont offert son premier contrat. Depuis, elle nous enchante avec ses histoires pleines d’humour et délicieusement sexy...
Kate Winton-Jones is marrying one of America’s most eligible bachelors. Edward Carnarvon III is rich, handsome and hers. But at the final fitting of her wedding gown, one of the seamstresses pricks her and a tiny blood spot appears on the outrageously expensive gown. Its famous designer fires the clumsy seamstress on the spot, whereupon the girl puts a curse on the dress and storms out. Kate doesn't believe in curses. She’s modern, American and in love with the perfect guy. What could go wrong?
But that very evening she meets a man who makes her question her future. And then she discovers that Edward has been hiding a secret or two… and before you can say, “This dress is so cursed,” she’s on the run from Edward, his family, her mother, the paparazzi and the person she thought she was.
When the man who discovers her hiding place turns out to be the last man she should trust, it’s time to throw her cautious good sense out with the satin shoes she won’t be wearing. Playing it safe hasn’t done her much good. Maybe it’s time to play by a new set of rules. Her rules.
Sometimes Prince Charming is the one who turns out to be the frog, and true love appears in the most unexpected places.
Follow the cursed dress through five sets of bridal hands as four more women join The Almost Wives Club.
