And Mad felt the blistering awareness of something her heart had always known: Cort had never belonged to Jax because he had always belonged to her, and here, now, their hearts were finally home.

Marry Me Mad was a beautiful and touching love story of epic proportions. It captivated me from the very beginning and held my interest till the last page. I went through a kaleidoscope of emotions while reading it, feeling Mad and Cort's hope and despair about the situation they were in, knowing that not everyone will understand their feelings for each other and support their relationship. I wanted them to fight for their love and a future together and let their hearts guide them.

Fate......either you believe in it or you don't. When someone reappears from your past, that someone that held a special place in your heart, can those feelings of long ago come alive again? It doesn't make sense, it shouldn't be happening, but sometimes fate has its own mind in deciding the when and where.

Madeline "Mad" Rousseau's life is falling apart. But when fate brings her to a bar, the music within drives her to come inside to drown her sorrows. But when she

The moment Katy Regnery revealed the first excerpts of Marry Me Mad (The Rousseaus #2) I was intrigued. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and start reading. This wish became reality when I got an early copy of this Blueberry Lane masterpiece that totally blew my mind. I confess I had very high expectations for this book which were all surpassed. Katy Regnery delivered another winner in this addictive series that is without a doubt my new favorite!

I'm wondering why I've never read anything from Katy Regnery before????!!!! Dude, I've been missing out!! This seems like an incredibly sweet, swoony, crazily hot, and romantic series and this book was no exception.

Do you believe in fate? In second chances? Madeleine "Mad" Rousseau has been betrayed in the worst way and she was heartbroken. Hearing the familiar tune of Le Cigne (The Swan), she follows the music to a bar/club and once there she decides to drown her sorrows. To her surprise and as

I don't know how it keeps happening. How every single time I pick up a Katy Regnery book - and there have been a lot of them - I find myself falling in love. Breathlessly. Joyously. Over and over again. There was no doubt in my mind that I was going to love Marry Me Mad - but still, the butterflies, the sweet ache in my heart, and that exquisite feeling of falling felt just as fresh and new - and every bit as exhilarating as the first time.

I'm not even kidding. I take such great joy from Ms.

It's not just a book! It's music!

They say first feelings fade away as time goes. But are they right?

Marry Me Mad by Katy Regnery is a fabulous romantic story about family, choices and consequences that some stupid actions have. It's not your simple love story. It's much more. It has depth.

Marry Me Mad is a love story of Madeleine Rousseau and Cortland Ambler . They grew together on the same street but then life took them apart. They met again after
Odd one out here......

First and foremost I have to say that the harp scene is to die for.

Good thinking Ms. Regnery in writing Jax’s book before writing Mad’s book because otherwise I would have had an absolute conniption. I knew why I didn’t like Jax and well now it has just been confirmed.

Mad is Jax’s twin sister, she is the quiet one who for some time has always lived in her sisters shadow.

Mad is a great heroine well she is slightly whiney but who am I to judge? Just a reader. A word of

OMG!!!!! Marry Me Mad is my NEW FAVORITE of Katy’s books. Obviously I need to reread all of the modern fairytales and some Blueberry books to be sure but this is my vote for now. I don’t know how Katy did it but every single book that comes out is incredibly more awesome than the next. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this story so much. I am dying over here Why does it have to end?

I always look forward to Katy Regnery’s releases, but after getting a preview of Marry Me Mad in the earlier-released Jonquils For Jax, I was DYING to get my hands on this book!

Once again, Katy did not disappoint. I have MAD LOVE ( see what I did there?) for the Rousseau ladies! Even though they grew up in a life of wealth and privilege, Katy gives us a heroine in Madeleine who lives much more modestly than her means. It was absolutely

A visit to Blueberry Lane is always a treat. Katy Regnery has infused this delightful set of series (it started as one, the English Brothers then quickly expanded to the neighboring families on Blueberry Lane) with her trademark mix of sweet and sensual romance and engaging characters. Marry Me Mad is the second book that features the Rousseau family, and pairs Madeleine with former neighborhood boy Cortlandt Ambler. It is concurrent in timeline to the first in the Rousseau series, Jonquils for ...more

2.5 to 3 stars. I like the Blueberry Lane series, although I've been reading them a bit out of order. This isn't the best one in the series, though.

I liked both the H, Cort Ambler, a musician, and the h, Mad Rousseau, a children's librarian. Cort and Mad were attracted to each other as teens, then accidentally bump into each other years later. Mad is at a low point, having dumped her cheater boyfriend, and trying to drown her sorrows in a dive bar. Cort happens to be playing piano there that

Katy Regnery does it again!

I swear she has some witchy magic going on because she knows just how to get you hooked on the characters from the start so you can’t stop reading until they get their very well deserved HEA.

I loved Cort. It’s really that simple. On the outside he looks like the ultimate bad boy and yet he has a sensitive soul. He’s sweet, charming, wickedly sexy and has determination in spades. Of course him being a musician made him that much

Swoooon!!!! Katy Regnery has done it again. She has spun a beautiful, timeless tale about two childhood friends turned forever soulmates who are torn apart by happenstance and/or bad timing, but reunited by fate and destiny. This time around, in MARRY ME MAD (The Rousseaus, book 2) we have Cortlandt Ambler, the broodingly sexy, edgy musician with the sensitive soul still carrying a secret torch for Madeleine Rousseau, the sweet,

This story was so cute. I have loved all of Katy’s Blueberry Lane kids. We met Mad in Jax’s story, her twin. These two were very funny together and leaned on each other during their rough times. However in Mad’s story she keeps quiet when she is in pain. When she puts all of her finance’s stories together and realizes she may have been played for a fool. Going in to a bar/pub, she runs into an old friend.

Madeleine Rousseau's night started out as one of her worst, but turned into magical and life changing one. Her attempt at forgetting pain inflicted by her soon-to-be ex leads her into a bar with a seductive, tatted, piano player who happens to be someone she used to know. Cort Ambler...the boy she grew up with, who she had a crush on, who dated her twin, and broke her heart.

Cort is protective, understanding, and kind to her, but is off limits! She needs to deal with her break up, but

5 in-love stars!!! Another add to the favorites list. I was hooked after the first tequila shot!

Mad (Jax from the first book's twin sister) is the button up kinda stubby type. She has just gotten a promotion at the library and decides to call her psychotherapist boyfriend, Thatcher, with the good news. Except all the news she gets is that his assistant answers and thinks it room service. Ok that's all good, but she wants strawberries and champagne and, well, Thatcher is in the shower. Ha. So

When love is unconditional, the love story is exquisite...

... Marry Me Mad is the second book about the Rousseau's of Blueberry Lane, or the third if you want to include Étienne Rousseau's romance with Kate English.

I went into it expecting a great read, because, of course I've loved each one of Katy Regenery's books and I really wanted to know how life dealt with the other Rousseau's (yes, Étienne and Kate's book had been my favorite Blueberry Lane book so far). What I discovered was a perfect

Ever since finishing JONQUILS FOR JAX, I could not wait to read MARRY ME MAD. Both books share the same timeframe, beginning a week after the wedding of Etienne Rousseau to Kate English. This is book 13 in the Blueberry Lane Series, but only number 2 in the Rousseau's Series. You could read them all singularly, or the entire series, but each book would be a delight with Katy Regnery's wonderful writing.

This is Madeleine Rousseau's (Mad) story. She was the twin sister of Jax Rousseau from the

Favorite Quotes:

She was downing tequila like the world supply was in danger...

You are impossibility beautiful. Cort had whispered the words, like they were sacred, or a secret, or a sacred secret and Mad stared at him in awe, wondering where they'd come from.

Baby, you're music. Like rain in the desert. Like sweet after bitter.

They'd shared way more than strangers could or would, and something about it felt so huge and so real, it was impossible for him to say no.

Such a beautiful and heartwarming story
This is the 2nd book in the Blueberry Lane 3 series, each book can be read as a stand alone, but I don't recommend it. Each book adds to the story of the others.
This story is just what romance is made from or should be. Two people who are their own person, but a united front, when necessary. I loved this book! These two deserve each other. They've earned their happiness, and the love that eventuates in their life.

I loved Jonquils for Jax.
I really liked Marry Me Mad!
Both books are part of The Rousseau Series but both can be read as standalone. These two books are beautiful in different kind of way that readers will surely enjoy. While Jonquils for Jax is enchantingly sweet, Marry Me Mad is delictably hot. Forget the sweetness of Jonquils for Jax for a while because this book is more spice than sweetness and Katy delivered them well. And oh my gosh. CORT. The banters between him and Mad brought a lot of

It’s official, I am totally hooked to Katy’s beautiful writing, gorgeous characters & the happily ever-afters that fairy tales are made of.

Marry Me Mad is #2 in the Blueberry Lane 3 – The Rousseaus. It is Madeline’s story & straddles the same time frame as Jonquils for Jax, which I loved as it gave answers to questions I never knew I even had, as well as pulling me further into this captivating family.

Mad Rousseau - beautiful, shy & super sweet is what most see, yet underneath that
