    Can there really be love at first sight?

    Abigail Martin doesn't think so. Unless the sexy red-headed stranger she wakes up with the morning after her best friend's wedding is telling the truth.

    Bobby Stockwood fell cowboy-hat-over-boot-heels for the brown-haired beauty, and married her in an impromptu wedding ceremony. Now he just has to convince his new bride that the morning after can be the first day of the rest of their lives.

    But just when Abigail starts believing the fairy-tale is real, she finds out exactly who Bobby is, and the walls of make-believe start crumbling down.

    Excerpt:

    A moan.

    The man rolled to his back, kicking off covers. Abigail gasped. Her gentleman visitor wore only a bow tie and black socks.

    She crept to the edge of the bed. His face was turned away, further hidden by red curls hanging down the nape of his neck and onto his cheek. A visual sweep of the attractive body brought a smile to her face when she paused on his more than ample endowments. A true redhead. An encounter of this magnitude should be easy to remember.

    Abigail smiled in spite of her throbbing temples. Inching closer, she nudged his boots aside with her foot and leaned over to see his face. Mmm. He smelled good, like rich leather and fresh cut wood. As she bent to get a closer look, Kirby, her sixteen-pound Siamese cat, entered the room and announced his hunger.

    The visitor stirred, grasped her arm, drawing her down across his hips.

    He rose up on his elbows and looked at her. “So, Abby, you’re a morning person, are you?”

    Abigail launched off the bed, trying not to come into contact with anymore of the warm body than she already had. Tripping over the boots, she ended up sprawled on the floor. “Who…” She gulped. “Who the hell are you?”

Review

Coffee Time Romance Reviews - 5 Cups: This is a really fun read that is based on falling in love at first sight. Abigail and Bobby are extremely likeable characters and they have great attraction between them. The western setting is realistic and adds strength to the storyline. The story flows very naturally and is well-paced; I even held my breath towards the climatic scenes near the end. I heartily recommend this book.

    There is only one word to describe this novella — adorable! While readers miss the couple’s “meet cute” the truth is that we don’t need to know what happened the first night they met because Abby and Bobby’s entire relationship is heartmeltingly sweet. This is a morning after that readers will not regret one bit.
    The somewhat introverted Abigail Martin is shocked when she wakes up the night after her friend’s wedding hungover with a man in her bed. The surprises keep on coming when Bobby Stockwood introduces himself — as her husband! Even though he is sexy, smart and charming, Abby still feels rushed into the situation. So she kicks Bobby out, only to wish he would have stayed. However, Bobby doesn’t take the rejection to heart. After a string of not-right-women, he knows that he has finally met “the one” even if she doesn’t believe in love at first sight. (THE WILD ROSE PRESS, Jul., dl. $2.99)
