Description

When a beautiful bride bolts instead of walking down the aisle, she finds her true path to Happily Ever After in this contemporary romance series debut.
When Maddie Donovan runs out on her high school sweetheart moments before walking down the aisle, she ends up at a bar in the small town of Revival, Illinois, with only the wedding dress on her back, fifty dollars to her name, and her "good girl" reputation in tatters. Not ready to return to Chicago and face the music, she accepts hot bartender Mitch Riley's offer to stay at his place. But sharing such close quarters is driving Maddie insane with desire.
Mitch thinks he's seen it all—until Maddie strides into his bar in full wedding attire and downs three shots of whiskey. Though the gorgeous bride seems tough as nails, Mitch also senses her vulnerability. With a troubled past of his own, Mitch has no interest in settling down—but he can't help his attraction to Maddie. Could he finally find his perfect match with this bride-not-to-be?

      • bioText: Jennifer Dawson grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later, they're married and living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog. Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she'd been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history. These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer, writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.

        December 2, 2013
        Launching the Something New series, debut author Dawson introduces a runaway bride. Maddie Donovan, suddenly desperate to escape her own wedding, climbs out a church window and takes off. When her car breaks down, she walks through Illinois farmland to the neon bar sign and meets lawyer turned bar owner Mitch Riley. Through a drunken haze, Maddie realizes this man sees her and listens to her, while Mitch realizes he’s laughed more with her than he has in the three years since he left Chicago. In a case of who’s-rescuing-whom, the two build sexual tension through romantic gestures while confessing their secrets to each other. Can Maddie run toward freedom instead of running away? Can he recapture the feeling of being alive instead of numb? Witty repartee, memorable secondary characters, and powerful attraction skillfully handled will have readers eager for the next in the series. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates.
