Lady Beatrix Danbury had always known she would marry William Mallory. She'd loved him forever, and she'd never doubted he loved her, too. But when she made him choose between their life together or his lifelong dream, Will chose the latter...and left two weeks before their wedding.
Will has no illusions that Beatrix would welcome him back with open arms, but six years did not dim his love or desire for her. The only problem is, she's about to marry someone else. Someone safe and predictable... the complete opposite of Will. But can he stop the wedding of the season and win Beatrix back, or is it just too late?

"[Guhrke] takes the concept of a second chance at love to a new level and creates a deep-sigh romance that wins hearts and minds." (Romantic Times)
Wonderful story--Superb performance by Anne Flosnik!
I enjoy a variety of books, but my favorite genre is Historical Romance. Set in the beginning of the 20th century "Wedding of the Season" has everything I look for in a book.
I don't think I've read a historical romance novel set around this era and I find the time period and setting makes it pleasantly original, and believable.
"Wedding of the Season" is not your usual fairy-tale romance, but is more realistic--the problems, the doubts and concerns of the hero and heroine are real. One can easily understand both points of view--they want two very different things from life. They have loved each other since childhood, but when given the ultimatum, 'to stay with her or give up his lifelong dream' Will chose the latter and left two weeks before their wedding.
I highly recommend it!
Not really much romance, mostly just hero and heroine bickering about the past.
I was very disappointed felt it was a waste of a credit. I thought this author would be better Narrator made it even worse. I had to struggle to get through it!
I would have made Will and Beatrix contemplate their past decisions a lot less.
This is my the first time I've listened to or read anything by Laura Lee Guhrke.
Anne Flosnik isn't my favorite narrator as she can get carried away a bit, but she did okay with this story.
There is a second book in the series, which I plan on listening too. I've read the reviews for the second book and it's supposed to be very good.
