Grab your one way ticket to Bride and experience sweet romance deep in the heart of Texas.
Down-on-her-luck Sydney Haverford is adrift. With her British visa expired and no marriage proposal forthcoming from her boyfriend to keep her there, Sydney takes the hint and decides to return to the US after an extended absence. Naturally, it’s the holidays–the worst possible time of year to have no close family and nowhere to go. A desperate Facebook post lands her in Bride, Texas, staying in an idyllic lakeside cabin owned by property developer and notorious bachelor, Everett Jeffries.
Everett’s father has just died, leaving the fate of the family business in his hands…or so he thought. When a reading of the will reveals that Everett must be married in order to inherit the company, the clock starts ticking on his future. He figures Sydney is an ideal choice–easy on the eyes and charming enough to convince the stodgy Board of Directors that their love is real.
When Sydney agrees to marry him in exchange for a tidy sum to fund her fresh start, neither expects their fake marriage to blossom into something more…
