Another Unconventional Wedding, K.M. Jackson Style

Extravagant pay-your-own-way destination weddings. Money-dripping ice swans. And reception DJs who keep the “Chicken Dance” on repeat. Some brides are simply not having it. They’ll rebel against white lace—and won’t let “special day” crazy stop real love.

Leila Darling is past done with the supermodel thing, especially the mega-parties and high-profile flings that have done nothing but leave her alone and jaded. She’s got the talent to be a serious actress, but the industry sees her as a high-maintenance, impulsive party girl with a reputation for leaving men in the dust—especially TV producer Carter Bain.




Carter’s had his eye on Leila for years, so when a bet gives him a chance to get close to her, he accepts. With the goal of getting Leila the image makeover she needs and Carter the star he desires, the game is on. Get married and stay married for six months. If Leila lasts, she gets her pick of his A-list roles. If Carter wins, she’ll take the hot sidekick part he’s offered.

But as their “I do” turns up all kinds of heat, Leila and Carter find they have more in common than they ever imagined. Are these two prepared to put business aside and surrender the ultimate prize, their hearts?

K.M. Jackson continues her Unconventional Brides romance series with another unconventional wedding!

Darling model and aspiring actress, Leila Darling, is looking forward to furthering her career, but the press is only willing to focus on her string of exes and her party lifestyle. Carter Bain seeks her out in the hopes of finding the star of one of his new shows, but Leila wants a more high profile role than what he's offering. That is until Leila's agent initiates a bet to have the two marry in order to clean up Leila's reputation. Their whirlwind marriage takes their family and friends by surprise, but to Leila and Carter, the end justifies the means.

The Betting Vow takes every girl's dream of marrying 'the one' and turns it into a fun rom-com that keeps readers flipping the pages. The characters are realistic even in a situation one could hardly ever imagine themselves in. I really enjoyed the fast pace of the story. K. M. Jackson gets to the point while also developing multi-dimensional characters with an interesting story to tell. Leila and Carter are both hard working individuals ready for the next chapter in their lives. Readers will see the doubts and insecurities that plague the unexpecting groom and bride in their journey to forever. It's sickeningly sweet with a comedic edge!

  1. That looks great. I also got married recently and had an amazing day. Earlier, we had decided to have small wedding in my aunt’s backyard but then we got to know that it will be pouring all day long so we had booked one of the affordable indoor San Francisco wedding venues from. They provided really nice services.
