It all starts with the wild-eyed panic and heart-racing desire to escape—escape from a life of domesticity, monotony, imprisonment, A.K.A. “marriage.” All Danna wanted to do was RUN. I tell ya, if I ever make plans to walk that plank, you can bet I’ll be wearing my running shoes (just in case.)

“Marriage was not a romance novel” (49) Of course not! It’s stressful, complicated, and a lot of work. Still, is it any wonder why Danna ran out on her wedding?

“[Aunt] Sudie'ʹs biggest triumph had been s

I love how this story started, a runaway bride who encounters another run away groom! Hahah who would've thought of that? It's funny, smart, very entertaining. They will have to learn to see past their first impressions and eventually.. they have to face the spiking attraction . Maybe it's because I've read a lot of romance lately so in the middle of the novel, I was kind of bored because it was predictable and cliché. I was also maybe too realist, all along I was thinking how two complete stran ...more

Really fun story. It was just a perfect romantic comedy. Light and sweet… right down to the strawberry festival. I can completely imagine Danna running from her wedding and accidentally taking off in a limo with Eric sitting in the back. So ridiculously unbelievable that you just can’t help but laugh. The back and forth bantering between Danna and Eric was fun to read. All of their interactions with the small town residents made me miss my years in NC.

I loved learning about Danna and Eric. They

As sweet as summer strawberries and just as enjoyable, this quick little romance begins with a runaway bride and a runaway groom winding up together as they both escape their planned fates. When a series of minor disasters strand them in the small town of Harmony in time for the annual Strawberry Festival, the two are forced to pretend to be a newlywed couple madly in love. But is it pretend? Best line that sums up the book? "Magic can't create love but love can create magic." A lovely way to sp ...more

I was immediately intrigued by the premise of this book - obviously, the runaway bride is a common plot device, but personally I'd never heard of a runaway groom before. And to have them both meet on the same day they're running away from their prospective spouses - gazinga!

They each have different but compelling reasons for having left their partners at the altar. After they spend the weekend together, love blooms. If you like Debbie Macomber, you'll enjoy this new author.

Written in the third person, this short novel is a feel-good read.

Read full review in the 2015 May issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Runaway bride kidnaps runaway groom ... what could be more interesting than that?

I was immediately intrigued with the runaway bride meets runaway groom storyline, as it puts a new spin on an old theme. A Husband for Danna did not disappoint. With well developed characters and a knack for writing descriptions that allow you to visually picture each scene as it unfolds, Christina Lorenzen, makes a splash into romance as an author to read.

It's a perfectly paced, beautiful, modest love story that

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This was a fantastic sweet clean romance! Danna runs away from her wedding, stealing a limo, with someone else's groom in it! From there, a series of mishaps and fun coincidences makes for a light fun read! This book is a prime example of not needing sex to make a good romance! I loved both characters. They were real, fully developed, and relatable. This is a great little read! You need to pick this up, you can't help but smile to yours

What a fun loving read. A runaway bride Danna takes off in a limo that a runaway groom from another wedding is hiding out in. Nothing but trouble comes their way and everyone thinks they are newlyweds. They end up stranded in a small town and let the fun begin as the sparks begin to fly between them. I loved every minute of this book. A very hard book to put down because you have to see what will happen next.

Very cute.

I thought that this story was sweet. It truly was a lovely romance.

But the plot needed more work and the story could have used a stronger content edit.

The characters were likable but the pace of the plot and the romance between the hero and heroine moved too quickly even for a shorter story. I would have liked to see this story made into a full-length novel with better character development, a stronger storyline, and better pacing for the plot. I truly think that with a more effective content ed

4.5 stars. There was something so romantic and dreamy about this book. I loved the start about two runaway people - one bride and one groom. It was a unique premise and the story had a unique setting and plot. I loved the secondary characters in this story and the goodness of the people they met in their adventure. Feel-good is the right word to describe the book. They didn't seem like a likely couple at all until you get to know them. The hero, Eric, is just my kind of guy - romantic and chival ...more

A Husband for Dana**** by Christina Lorenzen

This is a fun, humorous story of run away brides and a hesitant groom from a different wedding. Dana Rashba and Eric Harmon find themselves together for the weekend after Dana dashes out off from her wedding and Eric is hiding out in the limousine she drives away in. They end up in the middle of the Strawberry Festival where they are mistaken for newlyweds. A cute, sweet and fun story.

This story was funny and sweet. Danna and Eric are two people that fate brought together and the road taken to them finally falling in love is hilarious. You can feel the connection between these two from the very beginning. Christina brings us to Harmony, you feel as though you live there and you really begin to care about the characters like they are your own neighbors and friends. Great job! Loved it.

This novella is a sweet fun read with a runaway bride and a runaway groom. Why is Danna running from her fiancé? Why is Eric running from his wedding? How do two people running from two different weddings get together? I was given a copy for an honest review. I loved characters and the plot.

I love cozy type romances, and this one fit the bill. Liked the H/h right off and enjoyed small-town-feel setting. Run, Danna, run!

Loved Danna and Eric's escapades and their flight from two separate altars so to speak, to their stubborn refusal to like then love one another. Sweet story. I look forward to more from this author.
