That scandalous runaway bride - Kandy Shepherd

Have you ever experienced a moment where you realise the action you take next might very well become a defining point of your life? 

For Nikki Lucas, the heroine of my July release for Harlequin Romance, Best Man and the Runaway Bride, that moment comes when she realises she simply can’t go ahead with her wedding. Despite all the expectations of her friends and family—not to mention the groom!—she decides to bail. She begs best man Max Conway to help her flee from the wedding—straight into scandal

North America edition

 It’s bad enough she ran away from her wedding, but handsome Max is one of the world’s top tennis players and a celebrity. People are convinced they’d been having an affair!

The repercussions of that impulsive decision change everything for Nikki and Max—and gets right in the way when love starts to blossom.

Australia and New Zealand edition
Have you ever made an impulsive decision that changed your life? A relationship? A job? Travel? Thirty years ago, I went out on a limb to hire someone for a job on a magazine where I worked. Little did I know that her room-mate would become my husband!

The book sounds wonderful.

When I left school this country girl headed to the city. I'm back in the country -ish- side again, but it was quite an experience.

Thirty-eight years ago, I was walking downtown while visiting my mom in my hometown, and I saw a car that I knew belonged to a male friend of the family. I made the impulsive decision to "window shop" until he came out from a nearby restaurant. He offered me a ride back to my mom's (on Labour Day weekend), bought my ring in mid October, got engaged on Christmas Day, and wed the following July (when the plant where he worked shut down for two weeks every year). Celebrating our thirty-seventh anniversary this summer. Thankfully, we made it through the bad spots and came out MUCH happier.

A few years ago, I took a chance, wrote and submitted a short story in a contest. I was a runner up and became published!

Quite a change to go from country to city, Mary! Interesting that you then returned to the country.

I love your real-life romance story, Laney! That was a very good decision.
