When the exclusive ID Images is booked to capture the big day, Cassie encounters the most unwelcome blast from the past: Jared, her first love and ex-fiance, now wedding photographer. But Jared is a secret she must keep to herself.

When Cassie’s tasked with writing a wedding column, she jokingly writes about her situation. But it isn’t long before it falls into the wrong hands and it’s soon making headlines.

The question every reader’s asking is, who will she choose?

'I loved this story. Fun and exciting, it kept me glued to the page.' (Shelley, Amazon review)
 The characters are so well portrayed and very believable - as are the situations Cassie gets herself into (well, sometimes they're down to the dreadful "Monster-in-Law"). (Pat, Amazon review
It's a really good read, and I particularly liked the feeling that we were preparing for a wedding, as the wedding shopping excursions make you feel that you are preparing for the big day. This is a book that will make you smile. (Bobbie, Amazon review)

Some reviews 
I loved The Millionaire Plan by Karen King.. Amber Wynters needs to marry a millionaire - fast! This story follows her as she goes in search of a millionaire husband. I could really empathise with Amber's plight. She was likeable and 'real.' Jed was a real hunk, and the book was a page-turner.. Cleverly written and a glorious romantic book. Thoroughly recommended. (Diane, Amazon)
“The Millionaire Plan” is a modern twist on a “rags-to-riches” story, where the girl has to decide if she wants to marry for money or for love. Although the trope has already been played to distraction, the love triangle between Amber, Jed, and Randy teases the reader just enough to make it interesting, leaving no clue as to who Amber will choose.  The developing romance between Amber and Jed is also well done, with both characters helpless in the face of their mutual attraction.  Ultimately Amber must discover where her heart truly lies and decide if the cost is worth it.  Now who could resist a love story like that? Ind'tale magazine 
'The rules at the start of each chapter were humorous when compared to Amber’s actions.   Amber runs into Jed, literally, who works on his boss’ yacht.   Amber feels freedom to be herself around Jed and asks for his help after revealing her plan to him.The romance may have developed quickly but it felt real in how they spent time doing the little things together and enjoying each other’s company. Jed was totally endearing to me and I felt his relationship with his sister made him an even better man. Since I am a dog lover, the scene with Tess was precious to me. 
 'The attraction between Jed and Amber is really sizzling.  The tension and attraction builds through the story and it's great.' Aimee (Good Reads)

'I bought this book yesterday to take on holiday. The trouble is I'm halfway through it already and I don't go on holiday until Saturday.

It's so addictive! Silly me for thinking I would just read the first few pages. I just can't put it down, great read so far.

My packing is just going to have to wait now.' Gail.

Some reviews 

Never Say Forever is a romantic novella set in the UK. I loved the opening scene when she runs into him with the baby stroller. Kendall is between jobs when she runs into Jake and he offers her the temporary position of being his assistant. Never realizing how hard it would be   to keep his rule of not getting involved with his staff.  Beautifully scenery makes you want to be in the story with them. I liked Jake from the   beginning. Good relationships between Kendall and her friends. Author created interesting situations to put them into. For US readers you   may find some unusual words. Never Say Forever is a good beach read; fun and 


I absolutely enjoyed this story! A charming tale of two people who never wanted commitment yet find themselves inexplicably drawn to one  another. The way they met was awesome- she plunged into him with a baby stroller! To add to the drama, she takes a job working for him. Learning to trust is difficult for both of them, and it's through huge misunderstandings that they eventually realize the depth of their own   emotions. Add doses of humor, reality and the gorgeous settings and it makes this a fantastic read for anytime of the year!  kdbee   Amazon review
