In 2011, she and her husband moved from Seattle to New York City, where Lauren decided to pursue a fulltime writing career. It took six months to get her first book deal (despite ardent assurances to her husband that it would only take three). Since then, Lauren’s gone on to multiple books including the bestselling Stiletto series, with more sexy stories on the way!

Lauren currently lives in Chicago with her husband and spoiled Pomeranian. When not writing, you’ll find her at happy hour, running at a doggedly slow pace, or trying to straighten her naturally curly hair.

Discovering her fiancé is a con man moments before they exchange vows devastates LA celebrity wedding planner Brooke Baldwin. With a fresh start in New York and her first Wedding Belles bridal client, things are looking up. Until she meets the uptight businessman who’s holding the purse strings . . .

Seth Tyler wishes he could write a blank cheque and be done with his sister Maya’s wedding, but micromanaging the event is his only chance at proving that Maya’s fiancé is a liar. He needs the help of her stunning, sassy wedding planner who he finds both irritating - and undeniably tempting.

For Anth


THANKS SO MUCH TO everyone who used their precious reading time and book dollars to meet the Wedding Belles! It’s always so much fun for an author to delve into a brand-new world with brand-new characters, and the idea for a wedding planner–centric series is one that’s been on my writer’s bucket list for a long time.

I can’t think of a better “home” for the Wedding Belles than the fantastic team at Pocket, who’ve helped see my writing dream into reality, with amazing covers, marketing support, and editing.

First shout-out goes to Elana Cohen, who had faith in this book from the very beginning and worked her butt off to ensure that it lived up to its potential. I owe so much to her, as do Seth and Brooke, whose romance sparkles all the more because of her guidance.

To the rest of the fantastic team at Pocket, you guys are absolutely exceptional and deserve a long slow-clap. From the breathtaking cover
