Bride for Hire

Debra Clopton

Bella Reese: Bride for Hire…are you a single male in need of a bride for a day? A Pretty Woman type help-but without the hooker connotations or romance on the side that the old popular movie involved. This is strictly a business proposition for me to be at your service. . .do you need help with a corporate even, need a hostess or a planner? Do you have an event and need the eyes of a woman to help plan it and set it up with your personal interest and taste in mind but with an added touch of your bride (if you had one)…

Jilted twice Bella Reese has no plans to find out if three’s the magic number. She’s done with men. But she’s always loved the idea of being a bride, setting up house, planning parties making sure things are pretty and homey-the perfect nest for a home…and she’s determined not to give up on that dream. So, six months after her final wedding fiasco she’s turned a new leaf and opened her business, Bride For Hire. So far she’s been amazingly busy with corporate events with no “homey” entering the equation. Until now…

Rancher Carson Anderson is raising his baby daughter by himself after being jilted by his ex-wife three years ago when she chose a rich romeo over him and their baby. He’s never planning to make the marriage mistake again but now his daughter is turning four and he wants to make her fourth birthday special and also wants to redecorate his ranch house to make it more “homey” for her. The irony of his situation is he lives on the outskirts of Bride Texas the legendary home of the jilted bride…a small town south of Fort Worth. 

When his cousin Cooper Presley shows him the ad from a Fort Worth newspaper it’s everything he’s looking for-even the plainly stated-absolutely no romance involved. 

Carson makes the call.

It sounds like the perfect plan until he meets Bella.
