They're Wed Again by Penny Jordan

Emotional and romantic short story
5 stars

At a family wedding, Belle finds herself face to face with her ex-husband Luc and she just knows that something big is going to happen. The pair always were passionate together – be that with love or arguing – and this just might be the perfect time for things to get back on track.

As part of Mills and Boon’s 100th Birthday celebrations they are releasing some short stories (this one’s 112 pages long) by their best authors from across their ranges. I have never read a Penny Jordan story before but, based on this book, I can see why she is such a hugely successful M&B author and one of those chosen to write one of these short, inexpensive, birthday books.

With regards to the story itself – I am an absolute sucker for ‘second chance at love’ stories and this one really packed a punch. Belle and Luc’s story was so romantic and emotional and despite the short length, you really found yourself drawn in to the couple’s history and their love story. It was also sweetly sensual without ever becoming too sappy or melodramatic.

Short enough to read in a single sitting and guaranteed to give you a happy, romantic glow – I would highly recommend this book to all romance lovers. Definitely 5 stars.
