From USA TODAY bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly comes WAKING UP MARRIED, a free book in Harlequin's brand-new contemporary romance collection—Harlequin KISS.
Her first thought: "Who are you?"
It's the morning after her cousin's bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she's in a stranger's penthouse having woken up with something else as well—a funny, arrogant, sexy…husband!
Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible—been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with Carter…no, Connor Reed and she's gone from first meet to marriage in one night!
Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor's shocking bombshell?
"I don't want a divorce."

This could have been the conventional type of romance. One which consists of an `accidental’ marriage that the pair decides to try to make real. It would have been good too. Instead, this author took what could have been a trite and silly fairy tale type unbelievable romance and turned it into something more…something a little more real. Moreover, it is a lot better than the usual conventional themes.
Let’s face it, it you are reading a book like this you love romance and you may even be willing, like I am, to take yourself out of reality and throw all illusions of real-life into the wind. And I think this book actually takes that step back from reality and turns this into a book that is just a little more special.
We have, as I said, a sort of typical romance of accidental marriage. We have the perfect man, or what passes a perfect man offering to stay married for the idea of a strong partnership/marriage and father-hood. But, of course he wants more. However, not the way it seems we should be expecting. All along, he has had to persuade Megan that she was doing the right thing. You start thinking that he loves her and really does want this to go farther than a mere partnership. But, alas, this is not to be. However, the interesting part is just beginning when he sees the error of his ways.
What I did not see coming was just why Connor didn’t want love in his life, and to get to that point in the book the ride was a pretty interesting one.
The characters, while not 100% believable, are likeable. The humor in the story is dry and well written and the emotional aspects are fairly believable. It was a short novel so things are not as developed as I would have liked. Nevertheless, for a quick, light, fun read I think that this will make for a good one.
