Title: The Run-Away Couple
It is said that the maid-of-honor and the best-man are the most likely to have sex on the wedding night. Add a love-hate relationship and throw a couple of ghosts into the mix, and you have the Run-Away Couple.
Eloise chose a Gothic themed wedding for her and Dane, complete with remote setting, flickering candles, flaming torches and shadows, all geared towards scaring the guests. The stormy weather and swirling mists were a bonus.
But the person most scared was the maid-of-honor, the bride’s elder sister, Piper. She didn’t do creep. And she had been lumped together for the night of the wedding with Marcus, the best-man and the bane of Piper’s teenage life. He was a prankster of renown when they were growing up. As the boy-next-door, he singled Piper out for the best he could come up with. She didn’t trust him then and she didn’t trust him now.
As the run-away couple, would they follow the traditional path? Or would Piper’s dislike and mistrust of Marcus win out?
Set in South Africa, The Run-Away Couple is the first book in a set of steamy romances about bridesmaids, weddings and honeymoons that will appeal to the young and the young at heart alike.
The Run-Away Couple is available from July 1 in ebook and paperback from amazon.

The Run-Away Couple is the first book in the new Bridesmaids, Weddings, and Honeymoons series by Maggie Tideswell. It is also the first book I have read by this author. I was intrigued by the blurb and was delighted with the story that unfolded before me.
Piper’s sister is getting married and she has chosen a Gothic theme for her wedding. Complete with a venue of torches, candles, and shadows lurking, they are scaring the crap out of the guests! Piper is the maid of honor and unfortunately she finds she is shackled to her childhood tormentor, Marcus, as he is the best man. It is said the best man and the maid of honor are the most-likely to have sex on a wedding night known as the Run-Away couple. While Piper thinks Marcus is easy on the eyes, she’s wary of the humiliating pranks he pulled on her during their youth, and wants nothing to do with him. He, little does she know, has plans for her!
Once at the reception, a nasty storm rolls in full of thunder and lightening and a thick as pea soup mist, all adding to the creepiness of the hotel. Weird things begin to occur. She blames Marcus for being up to his old tricks. She is unnerved and scared literally into his arms. Are the things happening in her head, Marcus himself, or some strange force pushing them together??
I totally enjoyed the paranormal romance! Maggie Tideswell has a real gift of writing! I felt just as creeped out as Piper did while reading! It was detailed just enough to give you what you need without being wordy or excessively descriptive. It had so much mystery, I had to find out what happened next! The love/hate that Piper and Marcus has for each other was fantastic! Their chemistry was so incredible! And the sex-off the charts hot! You will fall in love with these characters and you will love this romance of Piper and Marcus! And the ending??? Awesome! It is worth every minute spent getting there!
