Their Vegas wedding is a secret that refuses to stay hidden…

Neither of them is ready for marriage, and anyway they’re not even in love! Roberta’s busy at the Bay of Islands Brides shop, and Angus’s job as a GP at the local surgery leaves little time for romance.
They both swear to keep their wedding a secret, but a terrible disaster throws them together in the most shocking way. They do their best to stay apart, but it turns out that vowing to love each other for the rest of their lives has a strange effect on their relationship…

Bianca Goldsmith has known Freddie Brooks since they were kids. At eighteen she finally admitted she was in love with him, but even though he liked her, Freddie was desperate to get away from his problems at home and enlisted in the New Zealand Army, leaving a broken-hearted Bianca behind.
Eight years later Freddie finally returns to his hometown, physically and emotionally wounded. To his surprise Bianca is still in town, and still single. She’s turned into a gorgeous woman, but it soon becomes clear that she’s not forgiven him for breaking her heart.
When Bianca’s mother, Noelle, asks him to take part in the Auckland Bridal Fair by acting as Bianca’s groom for the day, he’s quick to jump at the chance. Afraid of having her heart broken again, Bianca tries to fight her feelings for him, but the spark that has always been between them soon turns to a roaring flame.

She’s getting married in ten days, but she doesn’t remember the groom…
Phoebe Goldsmith wakes up in hospital after suffering a head injury to find that all her memories of the last eight years have vanished.
She doesn’t remember her father passing away. She doesn’t remember opening the Bay of Islands Brides shop with her mother and sisters.
And she definitely doesn’t remember Rafe Masters, the gorgeous firefighter who tells her that they’re due to be married on Valentine’s Day in ten days’ time.
Rafe insists they’re madly in love, but the thought of saying ‘I do’ to a complete stranger makes Phoebe want to run for the hills. Her family suggests she postpone the wedding until her memory returns. But Rafe’s determined not to give up on their marriage before it’s even started. He has ten days to convince Phoebe that he’s still her Mr. Right, and he’s determined to win her all over again, no matter what it takes.

Nearly two years after her husband’s death, Noelle Goldsmith is convinced that at age 52 she’ll never love a man again. Her days are full running the Bay of Islands bridal shop with her three daughters. Then her old flame, Cameron Taylor, walks into her life and turns everything upside down.
Cam is stunned to find the first woman he ever loved—and lost—on the other side of the world. He’s only in Auckland for one night, but he can’t bear to say goodbye to Noelle when he’s only just found her again. Jokingly, he asks if he can hire her as his wife for his business trip to Wellington. To his shock and delight, Noelle says yes.
It’s just an act and a chance to catch up on old times before he leaves again for the UK. But the passion that was between them has only been dormant, not extinct, and when it flares up again, it’s going to make parting a second time the hardest thing they’ve ever had to do.
One photographer, one wedding dress, one bride by mistake…
When a scandal drives famous actress Fliss Rivers to the Bay of Islands, she only plans to stay a few days. She hasn’t seen her old schoolfriend in years and helping out in Roberta’s bridal shop is a welcome distraction from the intimate details of her life that are splashed all over the internet. But she knows at some point she’s going to have to go back to the real world.
When Dominic Goldsmith’s wife died, he swore he’d never love another woman. But that was two years ago, and even his seven-year-old daughter insists it’s time he started dating again. Oblivious to the celebrity gossip on the internet, Dominic remembers Fliss as the young girl who blushed when he stripped off his sweater on the cricket pitch. His role in the local community relies on his exemplary behaviour, but when passion flares between them, neither can say no to a secret fling.
Then a photographer catches Fliss modelling a wedding dress, and the press are convinced the two of them are tying the knot. Their relationship is no longer secret, and Fliss is convinced it means the end.
But Fate is beholden to no man, or woman. And love always finds a way…
