The Castaway Bride is a fun and flirty read with plenty of romantic appeal. Being shipwrekced on an isolated island may not be what Cristy and Matt planned on but it was just what they needed and it gave them the opportunity to find love.

A lot of attraction, humor and a little throwing of caution to the wind makes this a fun read. It's a story that invites the reader to live out a fantasy. Cristy and Matt will learn something about themselves and whether their spark will last in the "real" world

I enjoyed this book. The fantasy of being shipwrecked on an island while trying to escape reality. Topping it all off with an attractive man who is sexually attracted to her. The story line of romance with all the unknown details of who he really is. I enjoyed the way the book ended.

Fun romantic romp in Australia between a runaway bride and a very secretive gazillionaire. A storm, a shipwreck, an island paradise just for two with some very hot sexy scenes made this one a fast, easy read.

Cristy Walters is moments away from tying the knot, when she catches her groom, and her maid of honor in a cinch. Just wanting to leave, Cristy bolts from the wedding. She runs into Matt Slade in the elevator, who against his better sense, decides to act as a knight and whisk her sway from her dream that's turned into a nightmare. For Cristy, being more attracted to her knight in shining than the fiance she has just left behind is scary. Will she be able to fight the attraction?

I really enjoyed
This was a cute, fun read that I managed to finish in about 8 hours over several days. I'm not quite sure if this wasn't edited before it was put on Amazon, but there are several spelling and grammatical errors. ...more
