About The Book: As far as Kelsey Wilcox is concerned, her last cowboy was the last cowboy.Kelsey Wilcox has had enough of cowboys. After the last one broke her heart, Kelsey traded in her boots for flip-flops, and the open range for a bistro on the beach. Her life on Corpus Christi’s gorgeous beach might be a little lonely, but at least it’s heartbreak-free. At least until her cousin’s beachside wedding bucks Kelsey right back into the rodeo.
When unlucky-in-love Brent Corbin packed his groomsman’s tux for his friend’s wedding, he brought his boots and belt buckle with him. Brent isn’t exactly looking for love, but when he sees what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he jumps right in to rescue her. So Kelsey finds herself plucked from the sea—and certain-drowning—by a gorgeous groomsman . . . in soaked cowboy boots. She’s quick to say thanks, but no thanks. Brent dedicates the weekend to pursuing Kelsey—and Kelsey spends the weekend trying to deny an obvious match. She’s as stubborn as a wild horse, but Brent’s determination may tame her yet.

My Thoughts About The Book: This was one of my favorites of The Year of Wedding Novellas. I am a big fan of Debra Clopton's books and this one was no exception. The book was funny and sweet at the same time. I loved both characters and especially The Posse. This was an easy read and once I began reading it I could not put it down. I cannot wait for A September Bride to come out. The Year of Weddings Novellas as a whole have been wonderful. If you are a romantic at heart then you need to pick up a copy of An August Bride. You will not be disappointed.
