Are two queens okay?

You are! “Call Me Maybe”.

Ugh. Do you want me to send you the band’s details and you can instruct them yourself?

 

From: Harry Byrne
To: Joe Kaminski

Subject: Wedding Playlist

No, you’re doing a splendid job. Otis Redding “That’s How Strong My Love Is”. That’s all I’m going to say. The rest is up to you.

Hi V,

Sorry for the delay. Here’s another couple of songs, if you don’t mind adding them to the list.

  1. Bobby Darrin “Dream Lover” – first dance! Needless to say, girl should be boy.
  2. Rihanna “We Found Love”
  3. Divinyls “I Touch Myself”
  4. WALK THE MOON “Shut Up and Dance”
  5. Queen “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”
  6. Bruno Mars “Marry You”
  7. The Man “Feel It Still”
  8. Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe”
  9. Otis Redding “That’s House Strong My Love Is”

There’s probably more coming. You know Harry.

Love,

Joe.

ABOUT MARRY HIM

Blurb:

Joe Kaminski likes to go with the flow, a good trait to have as a young artist living in London. His laidback approach to life makes him a fish out of water when he’s hired at P&B Designs, a high-powered PR agency. The money’s good, but with his poor planning skills, he doesn’t see it lasting.

Harry Byrne likes his life the same way he likes his PowerPoint presentations: structured. Known for his dynamic personality, Harry suffered a blow when his seven-year relationship fell apart, souring his mood. The last thing on his mind is getting into another relationship, especially with a man who can barely make it to the office on time.

They’re not even supposed to like each other. But five years later, Joe and Harry are getting ready to tie the knot. They should’ve known it was only a matter of time before everything starts to fall apart: obstructive friends, well-meaning but meddlesome family, a hovering ex, international incidents, fires, pregnancies, and an airport chase. It seems their “I do”s were doomed from the start.

Available now from Riptide Publishing!

 

Meet The Author

Marina Ford is a thirty-three-year-old book addict, who would, if permitted, spend all of her time in bookstores, libraries, or in her own bed with stacks and stacks of books. Luckily, she has a husband and a dog, who force her to interact with humans of planet Earth from time to time. In fact, she so enjoyed falling in love with her husband that she can’t resist evoking those same feelings in the love stories she writes. She does not believe in love at first sight—but she does believe in the happy ever after, though it must be earned. She likes her stories to be light, since real life can be miserable enough without making up more of it in fiction.

She lives in England, loves rain (gives one an excuse to stay at home and read books, right?), long walks (when it doesn’t rain), history, Jane Austen, the theatre, languages, and dogs. It is her dream to one day possess an enormous country house in which each room is a library (okay, maybe except for the kitchen), and in which there are more dogs than people. A smaller and perhaps more realistic dream is to make people smile with the things she writes.
