About the Book:
A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
Allie left the love of her life at the altar---to save him from a lifetime of heartbreak. When a Valentine's Day wedding brings them back together, she struggles against her family's destructive history. Can Allie ever realize that a marriage is so much more than a wedding dress?
History repeats itself when Allie Andrews escapes the church on her wedding day---in the same dress passed down for generations and worn by all the women in her family---women with a long history of failed marriages. Allie loves Marcus but fears she's destined to repeat her family's mistakes. She can't bear to hurt Marcus worse.
Marcus Hall never stopped loving Allie and can only think of one reason she left him at the altar---him. When the two are thrown together for his sister's Valentine's Day wedding, he discovers the truth and realizes their story might be far from over. Can Allie shuck expectation and discover who she is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she ever walks down the aisle, what dress will she wear?
I love him too much to marry him and stick him with someone like me. That's the gist of this cute novella. Of course, he's flabbergasted--why did she leave him at the altar? What did he do?
They live in a small town and life keeps bringing them together. She wants to be friends; he's confused. Eventually it all comes together, but given the cover, I'm sure you figured that out. Someone quotes Scripture to her at the right time and everyone lives happily ever after. This is a short easy light read with a little religion thrown in, but unless you hate religion in romances, it isn't too much.
