The Haunted Groom

by Karly Stratford


How much would you bet on first love this Christmas?

The generous and good-looking, Evan Cook, outside tackle for the Denver Storm, grew up in a bad part of Milwaukee where he did things he’d rather forget. His Christmas plans include starting a foundation to help kids get out of his old neighborhood. However, quarterback Will Kent throws a wrench in Evan’s plans with a bet. A bet for Evan to contact his first love, Anna Jordan, and try to win her back. To his surprise, Anna–now the hottest actress in Hollywood–agrees to help him with his foundation. Anna brings her feisty, ninja-like bodyguard along, and suddenly Evan has a problem.

The beautiful and tough, Henley Keaton only wants a drama-free Christmas. When Evan Cook calls Henley’s employer, to Milwaukee to help with some foundation, she’s overjoyed. She can avoid the yearly family fight and eat deep-fried-cheese-curds and relax for Christmas. But when Anna gets sick and forces Henley to go on a date with Evan Cook in her place, Henley’s plan begins to crumble. When Henley and Evan engage in a spirited duel of Shakespeare quotes, things get…complicated.

After tragedy strikes, and it looks like Evan’s haunted past is going to catch up with him, he must decide if he’s willing to walk away or let Christmas miracles come true.


Praise for The Haunted Groom

This was a great read! I loved the characters and I loved the story. This wasn’t just a strong boy saves helpless girl story. The boy is strong but the girl isn’t helpless. A great story of redemption and giving back! I loved it! ~ Mariah S.

I’m just me. A clumsy, introverted, bubble bath loving, chocoholic who would rather read a book than go shopping. And god forbid if you try and make me shoe shop!

I’m one of four kids to school teacher parents. A wife to a football obsessed husband. Mother to a fur-baby who isn’t really aware of how big he is. Aunt to the most crazy/adorable little girl. And sister to two very determined sisters and one easy going brother.

I live in Canberra Australia and work too many hours a day at my day job.

I’m a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in a day and loves writing in my spare time.
