Blog Hop: Shadonna Richards!

Hi, folks! Back to hosting many spectacular guests, and here with me today is Shadonna Richards, author of The Unexpected Bride.



Hi, everyone!

I’m Shadonna, author of An Unexpected Bride, a romantic comedy about Emma Wiggins who is about to marry her heart-stopping, gorgeous boss, CEO Evan Fletcher in seven days. Only he doesn’t know about it yet! Since An Unexpected Bride centers around the theme of love and companionship, I thought I’d compile a list some of the most romantic quotes or the most beautiful words you can say to someone you care about. Check this list out:

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” —From Love Story (1970) - Jennifer (Ali MacGraw) to Oliver (Ryan O’Neal)

“You had me at hello.”—From Jerry Maguire (1996) - Dorothy (RenĂ©e Zellweger) to Jerry (Tom Cruise)

“I love you. You’re my only reason to stay alive… if that’s what I am.”—From The Twilight Saga: New Moon Edward (Robert Pattinson) to Bella (Kristen Stewart)

“Love is like a sunshine. It brings a golden glow to its beholder’s face. And a warm feeling all over their body. It awakens souls and opens eyes. And when its over, it leaves a billions of small memories called stars. To remind the world, that it still exists.” – Author Unknown

“If you are in love…that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.” – John Steinbeck

“When you love someone, it’s something. When someone loves you, it’s another thing. When you love the person who loves you back, it’s everything.” – Author Unknown

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and to be loved in return. – Author Unknown

“Don’t give up too easy on finding true love…we all need love.” – Shadonna Richards (An Unexpected Bride, Sept 2011)

“Life is about moments…we have to make each moment a special occasion.” – Shadonna Richards (An Unexpected Bride, Sept 2011)

Hope you enjoyed the list. I thought I’d leave you with a synopsis of An Unexpected Bride. Enjoy.

Desperate to fulfill her ailing grandfather’s last wish to see her settle down and get married, Emma Wiggins, a 30-year-old, career-focused executive tells him a little white lie on his deathbed that she is in fact engaged--to her boss, deliciously handsome and emotionally unavailable, Evan Fletcher. 

The situation takes an unexpected turn when her grandfather's condition improves slightly and to her shock, he goes ahead and arranges a wedding ceremony at his hospital bedside before he passes on. Now, all Emma has to do is convince unsuspecting, commitment-phobic Evan to tie the knot with her in seven days. Can love blossom in the most unlikely situation?
