This fun and quirky tale follows the whirlwind romance of a smitten cowboy in pursuit of a jaded "mermaid". Brent Corbin and Kelsey Wilcox unexpectedly meet when she is rescued from almost drowning after Kelsey attempts to swim after her aunt's beloved dog when she is pulled out to sea by a wave. Brent muses that he rescued a "mermaid" because Kelsey just happened to be wearing a cocktail dress donned for her cousin's wedding rehearsal dinner when she was swept from shore. Being at the right place at the right time was not a coincidence for Brent- he happens to be one of the groomsmen for the wedding! Brent is immediately enchanted by Kelsey but she is guarded about his interest having sworn off all cowboys after her cowboy ex-fiance jilted her at the altar. With a little help from Kelsey's Aunt E and her friends- also known as the "Matchmakin' Posse of Mule Hollow"- Brent has his work cut out for him to convince Kelsey that their mutual attraction is worth exploring. An August Bride is a cute story that will have you rooting for Brent as he tries to woo Kelsey's love and affection!
