Six sweet contemporary romance novellas, all centered on a Summer Wedding.

In Melanie Jacobson’s charming novella, Love Bytes, Bree is the maid-of-honor and Dallen is the best-man. Living across the country from each other, they commiserate over their prospective best friends’ unrealistic wedding demands. While they plan and plot over email and texting, Bree realizes that the best part about the Maui wedding might be meeting Dallen. She just hopes that he’ll feel the same way.

Romeo and Julie-ex is a sweet romance by Julie Wright. “Romeo” turns out to be a two-timing jerk, and when Juliet Moore’s pre-ordered wedding dress arrives from UPS, Juliet curses everything male. In a stubborn streak, she decides to keep the bridal photography appointment—if only because the money isn’t refundable and it was the one thing that her ex-fiance actually paid for. Plus, she has the perfect wedding dress. When Juliet shows up for the appointment and meets photographer Jack Montague, she might have to take back some of her curses on men.

In Rachael Anderson’s enchanting novella, The Meltdown Match, Courtney spends each summer in her hometown of Heimel, Alaska, to find inspiration for her next novel. Her writing method has become a pattern—outline a novel in Heimel, then move to the place her novel is set to finish writing it. But when she runs into former high school friend, Mitch Winters, and they both win the Meltdown Match—a traditional dating contest—Courtney discovers that leaving her hometown at the end of the summer might not be so easy this time.

In Golden Sunrise, an engaging romance by Annette Lyon, Natalie takes time out of her crazy schedule to fly to Vegas for her best friend’s wedding. Sierra and Jason, high-school sweethearts, are finally getting married. Fortunately for Natalie, her old high-school flame, Adam, has a work commitment and can’t be there as best man. But when she arrives at the wedding rehearsal—late and ragged—Adam is there. Memories from the past—and all her old feelings—come flooding back. When Adam makes a wild suggestion, Natalie just may take him up on it, even though she knows he’s moved on. A single choice may mean Natalie is taking a shot at reclaiming the past—or that she’s putting her heart in harm’s way a second time.

Tide Pools is a captivating story by Heather B. Moore. When Lexi makes a quick trip to Hawaii to attend her friend’s wedding, she discovers that the engaged couple, Sydney and Apelu, are still trying to match-make for her. Lexi laughs because not only does their friend David have a serious girlfriend, but he owns a restaurant on the island. Lexi has too many plans that don’t include a long-distance relationship or coming between a guy and his girlfriend. But when Lexi meets David, she has a hard time remembering why all of her plans were so important.

In Sarah M. Eden’s delightful novella, A Regular Bloke from Stanmore, Abby is helping her sister, Caroline, plan her British wedding. That’s right, Caroline is obsessed with all things British and insists on an authentic wedding in . . . Oregon. When they arrive at Sainsbury House reception hall, it has everything Caroline loves, and the host, Matthew Carlton, even has a British accent. Yet Abby isn’t buying the whole good-looking-British man with impeccable manners thing; she’s determined to expose him as a fake. But the more Abby gets to know Matthew, the more she realizes how wrong she really is.

    I LOVED this collection of short stories featuring some of my favorite authors of clean romance! I think this is my favorite set of the Timeless Romance anthologies (although they have all been fantastic!). The stories all had something to do with a summer wedding, but they were all so different at the same time.

  2. I don’t know whose idea it was to do these anthologies, but I love them! I am not a huge fan of short stories, but they are done so well here that I actually look forward and buy each anotholgy as soon as it comes out! This was a really fun one, I loved all the stories and will definitely be re-reading them!

    I enjoyed the book overall but thought that some of the stories were a little more edgy than others. Some had a lot about admiring bodies of each other which gets old especially when it repeats all the time. And there was alcohol consumption.

    Melanie Jacobson – Love Bytes had a fun premise. I enjoyed it overall but I listened to this as an audio book and I think this one would have been better to just read. All the email back and forth was delightful as their banter was great but listening to the narrator repeat their email addresses for every exchange got old really fast. Contained a little language.

    Julie Wright – Romeo and Julie-ex also had a fun premise. I really liked Jack particularly. I don’t always like first person stories but it worked really well in this one. It added to the story instead of being a distraction for me.

    Rachel Anderson – The Meltdown Match was interesting. The whole idea of the actual meltdown competition is quite fun. Is it a real thing? And celebrating the summer solstice is a great idea for a story. The relationship developed quickly but that was because they both had been silently admiring from a far for many years.

    Annette Lyon – Golden Sunrise was good too. I felt bad that they had both been hurting for so many years.

    Heather B Moore – Tide Pools had a fun Hawaii setting. It sounded so beautiful. Plus I want teriyaki chicken now.

    Sarah M Eden – A Regular Bloke from Stanmore was my favorite of the collection. I loved Abby and Matthew and how he was in the end able to show her that he is a regular bloke.
