From This Day Forward

"Layne packs as much into this sexually charged and emotionally intense novella (an introduction to her upcoming Wedding Belles series) as most authors do in a full novel." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review


Starared Review, Publishers Weekly

This is a novella, not a full-length novel


Jason narrowed his eyes as he pulled the ever-present
cinnamon Tic Tac case from his front jeans pocket. He
flipped the lid open with a thumb, watching Leah as he
tilted three of the little candies into his mouth.

The tip of her tongue flicked out almost subconsciously,
touching the center of her bottom lip briefly, before she
jerked her gaze away. He wondered if she was remembering his taste as vividly as he remembered hers.

Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in this prequel to USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s The Wedding Belles series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.

Up-and-coming wedding photographer Leah McHale’s career is on the rise–thanks in no small part to the Wedding Belles, the elite New York wedding planning agency that always throws top-tier business Leah’s way. So when one of the Belles asks Leah to fill in at the former First Daughter’s wedding, Leah is overjoyed to say yes—until she finds out who she’ll be working with.

Jason Rhodes is the one man who was able to capture Leah’s heart and, once he had it, promptly stepped all over it and left her broken. Now he’s working side-by-side with her at the biggest wedding of the season and Leah is determined to give him the cold shoulder. Despite his persistence, she is not going to fall for his charming, impish ways again. Not even if he still has that killer, irresistible smile...
