A fabulous feel-good romance!
on 12 December 2013
Two polar opposites find themselves falling head over heels in love in Jessica Hart's irresistible first-person romance for Mills and Boon Modern Tempted, Hitched!
Frith Williams doesn't like to leave anything to chance. Hard-working, conscientious and determined, the dedicated engineer is driven to succeed and has her future all mapped out. She wants to get a big construction job under her belt, and then once she's gained the necessary experience, she plans to leave England behind and head overseas. Relationships and affairs of the heart are strictly not part of the plan for Frith. Unlike her socialite sister Saffron who lives for wild parties, excessive shopping sprees and designer dresses, Frith is more at home on a building site, dressed for comfort and armed with her plan of action. Frith's life revolves around her career and when she gets the job that could set her on the path to success, she is adamant that nothing and nobody will mess this up for her - so it's just a shame that estate manager George Challoner seems to take a particular delight in seeing her get all hot and bothered...
George Challoner is good-looking, charismatic and has way too much charm for his own good. The hunky estate manager may spend his days teasing Frith and making her blush, but she is well aware of the fact that, despite all of the banter and flirting, a man as gorgeous as George would never even contemplate the thought of taking a Plain Jane like herself out for a date. Men like George Challoner would much rather go out with stunning supermodels who look like they've just walked off the catwalk and not with a woman who spends her life covered in dust wearing boots and dungarees! However, little does Frith realise that there is more to George than meets the eye...
As part of the illustrious Challoner banking dynasty, George had once lived in a world of affluence and luxury. But upon realizing that not all that glitters is gold, George had turned his back on his old life and instead relocated to the countryside where he has been leading a very happy life as the manager of his great friend Roly's country estate. When Frith Williams had arrived at Whellerby Hall, George had been absolutely bowled over by her. But despite his best efforts, Frith doesn't seem to want anything to do with him!
When Frith's panic-striken sister comes to Whellerby Hall begging her to help her organise her wedding, George immediately offers to help Frith coordinate the society wedding of the year. Thrown together by circumstance and united by a sizzling attraction that simply cannot be denied, Frith and George soon find themselves getting closer and closer...
Will there be wedding bells in the future for them as well? Or will they let stubborn pride and a reluctance to put their hearts on the line destroy their chance of happiness?
Warm-hearted, deliciously witty and absolutely impossible to put down, Hitched! is a brilliant contemporary romance that will tug at your heartstrings and have you laughing out loud. I loved Frith - she was funny, engaging and had hang-ups and issues that we can all relate to and emphatise with and George was absolutely scrumptious. An intelligent and sexy hero with a wicked sense of humour, I defy any woman not to fall madly in love with him!
Smart, sassy and spellbinding from start to finish, feel-good contemporary romance does not get any better than this!
