Wedding of the Century and Other Stories by Mary Jo Putney, Kristin James, and Charlotte Featherstone

The Wedding of the Century & Other Stories: The Wedding of the Century\Jesse's Wife\Seduced by Starlight
Wedding of the Century is another recent anthology where the stories have the same theme. In each story the hero has been in love with the heroin for a long time but for some reason had to hide his feelings.
In Wedding of the Century by Mary Jo Putney Justin Aubrey met Sarah Vangelder when he was the second son of a Duke.  Sarah’s Mother was looking higher than a second son so Justin made no moves in Sarah’s direction until his brother died.
Jesse’s Wife by Kristin James is set in the American West.  Jesse is a ranch hand for Amy McCallister’s Father.  It takes something that will destroy Amy’s reputation for Jesse to speak up.
Seduced by Starlight by Charlotte Featherstone has a dashing and notorious rake as the hero.  Jase Markham has loved Blossom for as long as he can remember.  There is just one problem; Blossom is his bother’s fiancĂ©e.  When his brother breaks the engagement Jase can finally make his move.  
All three stories are very satisfying reads.  Each story is set in a different location and time period. Because each story is a novella and not a full length novel Wedding of The Century is a good book for anyone who likes to finish a story in one reading.  If two of the stories sound familiar it may be because both Wedding of the Century and Jesse’s Wife have a 1994 copyright.  Only Seduced by Starlight is copyrighted in 2011. 
I received a free copy of the ARC for Wedding of the Century from Harlequin Books.  Harlequin released Wedding of the Century in 2011.

Giving me a free book does not guarantee a recommendation.  I will not recommend a book if I do not like it.
