Of course you proposed to him #mfrwhooks

June is busting out all over! My wife and I had a June wedding, though that was a looong time ago, back in the mesozoic era. My best man was a triceratops. True story!

If you had a June wedding, jot the date in the comments. Double points if you had dinosaurs in the wedding party.

I’m continuing with a sneak peek at the opening of my WIP — the third and final book in the Passion Island trilogy, Triple Wedding. In today’s snippet, Teegan learns that her youngest sister is getting married — wedding #1 of the triple wedding of the title.

When Teegan’s comm unit pinged, she picked it up. Like her other possessions, the comm was top-of-the-line. A high-definition holograph appeared in the air above it, with colors more vivid than on cheaper comms.

It was her baby sister, Rayna, the only one of her three sisters she was in contact with. That was sad. Childhood rivalries shouldn’t swell to poison the rest of their lives. Her sisters were jealous of her success, of course, but some of the blame was probably hers.

Maybe most of it, which was something she couldn’t have admitted a few years ago.

Mercedes rose from the couch to give her some privacy, but before she’d taken more than a couple steps, Rayna’s bubbly voice soared through the air. She didn’t bother saying hello. “I’m getting married, Teegan!”

Instead of leaving, Mercedes stepped close to listen in on the call. Teegan slid over to make room for her. “What? When? To whom?”

“To Giraffe.

“Who’s Giraffe?” Teegan asked.

“Faraj. His name spelled backwards is giraffe, sort of. I proposed to him and he said yes.”

“Of course you proposed to him.” That was the kind of person Rayna was. And of course Faraj, aka Giraffe, had said yes. That also was the kind of person Rayna was.

Here’s a first try at a blurb:

The Triple Wedding

Teegan Dayle is a driven businesswoman whose company grows houses. When her three estranged sisters plan a triple wedding, she’s determined to show them her life is perfect—so she needs a gorgeously handsome wedding date to wow them.

Sterling, her roommate’s brother, is a handsome loner. When Teegan asks him to be her fake date, he refuses—until he learns amazing new creatures will be at the wedding. He’s determined to be the first to study them, even if it means pretending to love a woman he doesn’t get along with.

How far will they have to take the pretense? All the way?

Booker is a naïve young Apprentice Cupid whose job is to make a match for Teegan—but not with Sterling. Can he break up matches as well as he makes them?

  1. I hope that Rayna and Giraffe will be very happy together. However, I have a feeling that it won’t happen without a few hitches and glitches along the way.
    As I recall, the justice of the peace at my wedding was a pterodactyl. However, at the time we got divorced, the judge was a wooly mammoth.

    1. I didn’t know wooly mammoths were eligible for the bar. Learn something every day.

  2. My wedding was June 20th – 39 years ago!

    No dinosaurs, though we did get married outdoors in a state park. Our cats refused to attend.

    1. Mine was June 21 — almost the same date, though 52 years. I’m not quite as old as that makes me sound, though. Judi was my high school sweetheart and we married a week after graduation.
