Release day: Kiss the Bride

1 June 2015

Today is the official release of Kiss the Bride by Rachael Johns (ebook, Tule Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

Kiss the BrideIt seems that wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

And that suits single mom, Magdalena Davis, just fine. It means the local gossips will stop hounding her about returning to town and the secret she’s kept for fifteen years. Home to make peace with her sick mother, the last thing Mags wants is to get involved in Marietta’s big celebrity wedding. But when her teenage daughter cajoles her into auditioning to sing with a local heartthrob, all her plans for flying under the radar zoom out of the window.

Country music singer, Jake Kohl, has lost his muse. He’s jaded from years of life in the fast lane and wants to settle in Marietta and lead a normal life. He reluctantly agrees to sing at the celebrity wedding, but what he doesn’t expect is his co-singer to reignite his passion. But it’s not just the music she awakes in him. Magdalena makes Jake feel and want things he hasn’t for far too long, but there’s more to her than meets the eye.

Can Jake solve the mystery that is Magdalena and win her heart?

Rachael dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I had so much fun writing Tease Me, Cowboy last year and piqued my own interest with one of the secondary characters in that book, so I decided to write her story in Kiss the Bride. Magdalena Davis (sister of the heroine in Tease Me, Cowboy) is a character with a past and secrets and I find these characters the most fascinating to read. I really enjoyed this sweet, but slightly sexy story, and loved writing about the teenage daughter as well. One of the tropes in this story is ‘Coming Home’ to a small town after an extended absence (15 years in Magdalena’s case) and this is one of my favourite type of stories to read and write. I hope you’ll enjoy reading Magdalena and Jake as much as I enjoyed writing them.

You can find out more about this book at Rachael’s website or buy it from Amazon and Amazon AU.

    Just finished “Kissed the Bride”. What a beautiful love story and once again well written. A question was asked the other day at an Author event that I attended about Australian Writers and there acceptance overseas. Rachael, you transcend all of that. Whether you are writing about people in Australian towns or America, you have that knack of drawing the reader in and letting them feel a part of the book. Thank you once again for a wonderful story and look forward to the next one.
