The Bonneville Hotel is the best kept secret in Mayfair: its art deco suites and glittering ballrooms a former home-away-from-home for royalty and film stars alike. Recent years haven't been kind, but thanks to Events Manager Rosie, the Bonneville is reclaiming some of its old cachet as a chic retro-glam wedding venue. While Rosie's weddings are the ultimate in romance, Rosie herself isn't; she's focused on the details, not the dramas. But when the hotel owner appoints his eccentric son Joe to the Bonneville staff, Rosie finds herself up against an unprecedented challenge: a rival whose predilection for the unconventional could derail not only Rosie's own career, but the most elaborate, high-profile wedding the Bonneville has ever seen.

Who would dream of being against love? No one. Love is, as everyone knows, a mysterious and all-controlling force, with vast power over our thoughts and life decisions. But is there something a bit worrisome about all this uniformity of opinion? Is this the one subject about which no disagreement will be entertained, about which one truth alone is permissible? Consider that the most powerful organized religions produce the occasional heretic; every ideology has its apostates; even sacred cows find their butchers. Except for love. Hence the necessity for a polemic against it. A polemic is designed to be the prose equivalent of a small explosive device placed under your E-Z-Boy lounger. It won’t injure you (well not severely); it’s just supposed to shake things up and rattle a few convictions. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Twenty-seven years ago, an infant turned up on the doorstep of London’s esteemed Phillimore Academy for Young Ladies. Now, Betsy Phillimore returns to the place where she was lovingly raised by Lord and Lady Phillimore, only to find the Academy in disrepair and Lord P. desperate to save his legacy. Enter Betsy with a savvy business plan to replace dusty protocol with the essentials girls need today: cell phone etiquette, eating sushi properly, handling credit cards, choosing the perfect little black dress, negotiating a pre-nup, and other lessons in independent living.

Will the puzzle pieces of her past fall into place while Betsy races to save the only home she’s ever known?

After five years of being lost in the Amazon, archaeologist Chaz Vincent has finally come home to his wife, Kelly, only to learn that she has had him declared dead. When he attends his own funeral, Chaz finds out that Kelly married another man just that morning. Now she has to choose between them. Who will be her favorite husband? Sequel: Caught in the Act “A breath of fresh humor in the land of romantic comedy! Laughter, sex, a hero to-die-for . . . what else could the romance reader want? My Favorite Husband is a laugh-out-loud hit!” —Sandra Hill, New York Times Bestselling Author ”Taking a page from movie classic My Favorite Wife, Pam McCutcheon dishes up a delightfully amusing and wacky comedy. Over the top fun and humor make this a screwball classic!” — Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times (four stars!) “My Favorite Husband is by far one of the most pleasurable books I have read this year. From page one the action never stops. I could not put the book down. I stayed awake into the wee hours reading and laughing and turning pages and laughing some more. The secondary characters are integral to the story, and provide tons of comic relief, but the focus is on Kelly and Chaz and the decisions they must make. The romance is poignant and sexy, and Chaz is the ultimate romantic hero. Ms. McCutcheon expertly intertwines laughter and fun within different plot threads, and just when I thought she had them all together, she adds yet another twist to this wonderful story! My Favorite Husband is a fun and exciting escape from everyday life, and is well deserving of Romance Review Today’s Perfect 10 award.” — Diana Risso, Romance Reviews Today “Five stars! This romantic comedy testifies that if something can go wrong it will go wrong! This is the best romantic comedy I’ve read this year. I read this book in a day. I couldn’t put it down. I carried it with me all around my house. Yeah, my husband thought I was totally bonkers, especially when I burst out in hysterical laughter. My Favorite Husband is a must read.” — Melissa Alvarez, About dot com “Five Roses! This book was a riot from cover to cover, the laughs just kept coming. The scenes where Chaz and Spencer ‘compete’ for Kelly by having the best date are some of the funniest I have ever read. Think rappelling, spying, wining, dining, and of course a little lovin’. These two men are polar opposites, Chaz is Indiana Jones come to life and Spencer is a debonair man about town. How can one woman chose between two wonderful men like them? Well it is no easy choice, but to console all you happy ending fanatics, I will share one little secret—both men end up happy at this end of this book! I had a hard time putting this little gem down! If romantic comedy is what you like then take my advice and put Pam McCutcheon’s new novel, My Favorite Husband at the top of your shopping list!” — Jen, A Romance Review “Reminiscent of the old screwball romantic comedies, My Favorite Husband will make you laugh until your sides ache as Kelly tries to straighten out the complicated mess her life suddenly becomes. Author Pam McCutcheon has used her considerable talent for comedy to catch and hold the reader’s attention as Kelly moves from room to room in the classy hotel Spencer had chosen for their honeymoon. She doesn’t move alone, but unwillingly with an entourage of self-interested characters who are hilarious in their efforts to complicate further an already tabled situation. Fascinating reading with a lighthearted look at the funny side of life. This is a great read for anyone with a sense of the ridiculous. A real reading adventure.” — Anne Edwards, The Book Review Site “Using the theme from the classic Grant-Dunne movie My Favorite Wife, Pam McCutcheon spins an amusing romantic romp that captures all the lunacy of the 1930s screwball comedies."” — Harriett Klausner

Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw. Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work.

It Doesn’t Take a Perfect Person to Find a Perfect Love Even though he was born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic created a “ridiculously good life.” But after dating disappointments and a failed relationship, he reached his mid-twenties worried that he would never find a woman to love him and share his life. Then Nick met Kanae and everything changed. But even with undeniable chemistry, they would have to navigate twists and turns worthy of a romantic comedy before becoming "one" in marriage. In Love Without Limits Nick and Kanae tell how they improbably found each other, fell in love, and then fought to overcome skepticism from others about their relationship. Filled with practical insights that will benefit any couple, this inspiring book describes a godly courtship and the early years of the Vujicics’ marriage and parenting journey. Above all, Love Without Limits is an inspiring reminder that when Christ is at the center of a relationship--even with serious challenges--true love will triumph. *** “Despite my optimism about other parts of life, I decided that love in this world had limits after all. I’d become convinced that no woman would want to marry such an obviously imperfect man as me….” As a boy growing up in Australia, Nick Vujicic could not understand why God had allowed him to be born without limbs and if He would ever bring a woman into Nick’s life. On the other side of the world, Kanae Miyahara—a girl growing up in Mexico--saw dysfunction sadly separate her family. She wondered if a loving, lasting marriage was even possible. Later, when Nick realized that God had a purpose for him, his life took on new meaning. But after a long-term relationship ended in heartache, would he ever find someone to marry? Kanae experienced relationships based on superficial attraction, but she longed to find a mate with strong character and faith—a man who would be a godly husband and father. When Nick and Kanae met in the most amazing way, they realized that God—the ultimate Matchmaker-- had used even their discouraging and painful experiences to prepare them for each other…for the love of their life.
