Her Timing Couldn't Be Worse...

Miss Eugenia Talbot's presentation to the queen is spoiled by a serious faux pas—the despicable William Grant made her laugh, right in front of Her Majesty. Now Eugenia is ruined and had better marry—someone, anyone—at once...

And His Couldn't Be Better...

Roguish William Grant has never taken anything seriously in his life. Until he meets Eugenia Talbot, who makes him feel and do thing he never thought he would.

Now Eugenia's great sense of humor and kindheartedness may be her undoing, unless William can help her find a husband. To his surprise, that's the last thing he wants to do...

  1. I have not been to many weddings. The only bad thing I can think of is that My cousins like four hours because of some sand ceremony. The sand ceremony was sweet but it took way to much time.

  2. Well, I'm not married, but there was one wedding I went to and I didn't plan a hotel that night with my best friend. We really didn't want to pay for another night. We were really poor. My best friend was a bridesmaid and we thought that we could just find a place to sleep. Well... the groomsmen (who we didn't know) found out about our predicament and let us stay in their hotel. We slept in one bed and the two huge guys slept in the other! Awe.some.

  4. I went to my Godmaother's daughter's wedding and she had a terrible problem that would cause her to burp unexpectedly. And I mean this was a burp that seemed to go on forever. lol It's really not funny because she was going to have a minor surgery after the honeymoon to correct it. So just as she was supposed to say "I do" the minute she opened her mouth there was the burp. It sounded like an animal and the church had been so quiet. All you saw was her look of terror and the entire wedding party standing there and all their shoulders shaking trying to suppress their laughter. It couldn't be helped, the next thing you know even the Priest burst out laughing and then everyone laughed. It's a wedding day I'll never forget. She did finally say her I do. :)

  5. I have only attended a couple of weddings. The 'worst' I guess was a friend who had recently converted to Catholicism. The Catholic wedding ceremony took a really, really long time, with various people reading scripture and little rituals performed by the Father.

  6. The worst wedding I ever went to was my own father's when I was a kid. I didn't like who he was marrying so it was painful to have to dress up and pretend to be happy. (The marriage didn't last long though and he remarried a lovely woman whom he's still with.)

  7. I forgot to add my email address to my comment.

  8. In setting up for our wedding reception, the caterer dropped the bottom layer of the wedding cake and had to replace it at the last minute!

  9. Thanks for a fun post and giveaway! The worst wedding I've ever been to was the only one that I was a bridesmaid in. Literally, anything that could go wrong did go wrong. the worst was the centerpieces. The bride wanted something unique and had decorative fishbowls with gorgeous rocks and greenery and goldfish. Well... the decorator then put votive candles around the fishbowls and by the end of the end, all of the fish had been boiled.


  10. the funniest - someone had wrote on the bottom of the grooms shoes, HELP ME - so we could all read it when he knelt

  11. The best wedding I went to was my daughters. It was just her husbands parents, her sister, her dad, myself, and her grandparents (her grandfather married them) and her brother forgot to show up. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. A couple funny things happened in my wedding. While putting the ring on my finger my now husband didn't realize the ring was already all the way on and kept shoving and shoving until finally I was like hey it's on. Also, our best man crossed his arms in front of him instead of behind him and he has really long arms and in the video it looks like he is scratching "himself" the entire wedding. Looking back 16 years later it is pretty funny but it wasn't right away!

  13. My mom got remarried when I was a kid, and at the reception, my brother and cousin (both 10) got up and started stripping to "I'm Too Sexy". My mom luckily stopped them after just ties, shoes and shirts, but it was hilarious.

  14. I haven't been to any weddings that didn't turn out fine. My own wedding ran smooth.

  15. When my son got married the flower girl sat down on a step in front of the church and threw petals out of her basket and smiled and waved at everyone.
