Wedding planner Tyler Warren thought she’d finally found The One, and she couldn’t wait to live out their fairy tale together. Unfortunately, relationships don’t always work out the way we want them to. Sometimes modern-day princes have inner dragons to battle, and when issues from the past threaten to end Tyler’s relationship before it really begins, she starts to question whether their love story is real. But the biggest test may be the arrival of a handsome new prince, ready to step in and steal her heart forever. A lot can happen between Once Upon A Time and Happily Ever After. This second volume in the Tales Behind the Veils series picks up where Diary of a Single Wedding Planner ended, but Tyler’s personal drama dampens her enthusiasm for her crazy wedding clients. As she travels down the sometimes treacherous path of romance, Tyler finds that being a wedding planner in love isn’t always the easiest job to have!

Dear Reader, In celebration of true love, here's a Valentine's Day treat--the tale of two star-crossed lovers who can't see that they're perfect for each other.... Lady Emma Beaumont and Lord Alasdair Chase were once inseparable childhood friends, then betrothed lovers. But something went dreadfully awry, and Emma left Alasdair practically at the altar. Now, two years later, Emma has inherited a substantial fortune...but there's one small string attached: until the day she weds, Emma cannot spend a farthing without Alasdair's consent.

Enrique Aragon, or Rick to his family and friends, is a simple young man from a humble background. Since he couldn¿t afford college, he decides to enlist in the US Navy, and that¿s when he meets Margaret Louise Van Buren, or Maggie, as he fondly calls her. A daughter of a retired submarine captain and a university professor, Maggie is from a well-to-do family. She and Rick are worlds apart in their backgrounds, but in each other they found true love. Yet the circumstances of the time conspire to keep them apart, as the United States is at war with Vietnam. Rick is called to serve overseas, and Maggie¿s own experience with her father¿s absence, being at sea most of the time, while growing up confuses her mind that she winds up thinking Rick will be the same as her father¿s absenteeism. And with this, as words go unspoken or misspoken between them, a misunderstanding to be sure, they part ways. Will they find the way back to each other again?
Diann Valentine makes magic and weaves dreams. For more than a decade, she has produced inimitable celebrations of love for a host of top talents, as distinct as Lela Rochon and Antoine Fuqua, DeLeon and Gary Sheffield, and Kelis and Nas, in cities as different as Toledo, Ohio, and the Big Apple. "I'm definitely living up to my name," says Valentine. In Weddings Valentine Style, this unabashed romantic with a commitment to quality and a keen eye for excellence reminds readers that a classy, unforgettable wedding is not about merely serving up fine caviar and champagne but rather about envisioning the triumph of a stunning centerpiece composed of a single stem of dendrobium orchids rather than a crowd of carnations or mums. Ultimately, Valentine insists, "It's about making choices that speak to your own beat." Valentine has been featured in InStyle, Essence, O: The Oprah Magazine, and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, among other periodicals, as well as on InStyle Celebrity Weddings, Entertainment Tonight, E! News Daily, and VH1 Rock N' Roll Weddings. She receives constant applause for her extraordinary ability to trump continuously her own creativity in producing one-of-a-kind celebrations, her energy never failing from vision to execution. Her signature style is clean, simple elegance with touches of eclecticism, meshing tradition and innovation. And in Weddings Valentine Style, she offers lovebirds with and without big budgets a treasury of information and inspiration for dreamweaving a glorious "I Do" day.
