There are a billion reasons Kate should marry her current boyfriend.

Will she trade them all to be madly in love?

Katie McKenna leads a perfect life. She has a fulfilling job, a cute apartment, and a wedding to plan with her soon-to-be fiancÚ, Dexter. She can think of a billion reasons why she should marry Dexter. He’s everything she wants in a husband.

And then in walks Luc DeForges, her bold, breathtaking ex-boyfriend. Only now he’s a millionaire. And he wants her to go home to New Orleans to sing for a friend’s wedding. As his date.

But Katie made up her mind about Luc eight years ago, when she fled their hometown after a very public breakup. Yet there’s still a magnetism between them she can’t deny.

Katie thought her predictable relationship with Dexter would be the bedrock of a lasing, Christian marriage. But what if there’s more? What if God’s desire for her is a heart full of life? And what if that’s what Luc has offered all along?

"Katie and Luc dance off the pages of this book, making you fall in love with them and New Orleans. Full of surprises and romance." —Carolyne Aarsen, author of The Baby Promise

Hard to get into

User Review  - Doris Wright - Christianbook.com

It took a while to get into this book. It just couldn't hold my attention. But, it finally did. I thought Katie was selfish on a lot of things. Luc did treat her like a queen and Katie would blow him off. I'm glad I didn't pay for this book. Read full review

You'll get, at least one good laugh, guaranteed!!

Okay, I will go right ahead and admit that I was surprised by this book. This might seem like a light story, but I'm guessing this author didn't take writing this lightly. First summer + Billerbeck ... Read full review
