[quote] Winn Busby (heroine): “Well,” she replied, clearing her throat. “I suppose you look good in the tux. Does that appease your ego?”

Patrick Lincoln (hero): He ran a finger over her bare shoulder and down her arm. Her skin flushed with goose pimples at his touch. Already too deep for her peace of mind, his voice grew husky with desire. “Winn, I’m nowhere near being appeased.”

The Stand In by Rosanna LeoThe Stand-In by Rosanna Leo

Failed actress Winn Busby is at the end of her rope. With no money and no prospects, she accepts the one job she never thought she’d see on her resume. Professional bridesmaid. It should be easy. If only the idea of weddings and vows didn’t give Winn a case of the hives. Her role becomes more challenging when she’s told a reporter will shadow her work for a men’s magazine article.

Working for Player magazine is Patrick Lincoln’s worst nightmare. A former political journalist, he used to write thoughtful columns for one of Toronto’s most respected papers. That is, until he was blackballed for allegedly sleeping with the boss’s wife. Overnight, Patrick becomes the city’s most reviled bad boy. And now he’s forced to write a seedy expose on, of all things, a bridesmaid.

Patrick begrudgingly accompanies Winn to a series of strange weddings. As they are forced to work together, he learns there is more to the stand-in bridesmaid than puffy dresses and pretty speeches. She, in turn, begins to question whether or not Patrick actually deserves the derision of his peers. As much as they fight their attraction, it begins to threaten their work and their sanity.

For so long, Winn has felt second-best. A stand-in. She finally meets a man who believes in her value. But can she let go of the past and accept him?

I supposed the giveaway question answers itself: What draws you to a man who sees the value in another person that no one else does? I guess that’s what draws me to him.. that he is a better semiotician than the common peasantry. 🙂

I think anyone who sees the value in another person is attractive just for being able to see that value.

Hi Sarah! Would you believe it is? I know! I never would have believed it either, but I read an article on this very profession a couple of years ago. After reading the piece, I knew I had to make one of my heroines a pro bridesmaid. Thanks for commenting and I hope you enjoy the blog.

That’s ridiculous! I mean, it’s good for pro bridesmaids but seriously . . . I guess people will pay for anything!
