The Wedding Dare Blog Tour ~ Guest Post: Favorite Wedding Tradition

Dare to Resist by Laura Kaye
Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long…
Colton Brooks is in hell. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with Kady Dresco, the object of his darkest fantasies, will require every ounce of his restraint. She’s his best friend’s brilliant little sister, not to mention his competition for a lucrative military security services contract. Craving her submission is not allowed. But as her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve, Colton’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.

Falling for the Groomsman by Jen McLaughlin writing as Diane Alberts

She’s the one that got away. He’s the one she can’t forget.
Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend’s older brother, her plans change. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but Christine wants revenge. Soon, she’s caught in her own trap of seduction. And before the wedding is over, Tyler’s not the only one wanting more…

Baiting the Maid of Honor by Tessa Bailey

He’ll own her from the very first touch.
Julie Piper and Reed Lawson are polar opposites. She’s a people-pleasing former sorority girl. He’s a take-no-prisoners SWAT commander who isolates himself from the world. Until he sees Julie. When they’re forced together at their friends’ posh destination wedding and she’s dared to seduce another man, Reed takes matters into his own hands. One night should be all he needs to get the blond temptress out of his system, but he’s about to find out one taste is never enough…

Seducing the Bridesmaid by Katee Robert

She has a plan. He’s about to change it.
Regan Wakefield is unafraid to go after what she wants, so she’s thrilled when her friend's wedding offers her an opportunity to score Logan McCade, the practically perfect best man. Unfortunately, groomsman Brock McNeil keeps getting in her way, riling her up in the most delicious of ways.Regan may pretend the erotic electricity sparking between them is simply a distraction, but Brock will do whatever it takes to convince Regan that the best man for her is him.

Best Man with Benefits by Samanthe Beck

How far can one favor go…
Logan McCade’s best man duties have just been expanded. Coaxing the groom’s little sister out of her shell should be easy for a high-octane extrovert like himself—or so he thinks until he’s blindsided by the delectably awkward Sophie Brooks. She’s sweet, sexy, and brings much-needed calm to his hectic, workaholic life. Soon, he’s tempting her to explore all her forbidden fantasies…and wondering exactly how far a favor to his best friend can go.

Best Man with Benefits by Samanthe Beck

June is the month for weddings. So, today, we’re very excited to share each of our own personal favorite wedding traditions. Here we go:
Samanthe Beck: My husband comes from a large, tight-knit Kentucky clan. During every reception, at a point after many beverages have been served, somebody tells the DJ to play Hank Williams, Jr.’s “Family Tradition,” and the whole, multi-generational KY crew gets out on the dance floor, forms a giant circle, and sings along, complete with the unofficial “...to get drunk...to get stoned” lyrics. I always look at the bride and think, “Welcome to the family, hon.”
Diane Alberts: Mine has to be…the actual walk down the aisle in the white, floufy dress. And when the bride is walking down the aisle, I like to look at the father, the mother, and the husband. They all have such varying degrees of awe/love on their faces, that I never miss it. :)
Laura Kaye: I love at weddings when the guests are invited to voice a wish for the couple. I think that’s it’s so sweet to actually hear all the amazing things your friends and families want and hope for you. I also really love when the bride dances with her father - it’s so sweet! My father had died by the time I married, so I danced with my mom, who cried the whole time!
Tessa Bailey: My favorite wedding tradition is the bride dancing with her father. I think it’s a beautiful way to ease a father into “letting go” of his little girl and placing her in the care of another. A happy send-off. My father and I danced at my wedding to a Van Morrison song and it’s one of my best memories.
Katee Robert: My favorite part is the first dance with the new husband and wife. Without fail, when they’re looking at each other, there’s so much love in their eyes that it does me in every single time. They’re looking at each other like “Holy crap, this is real. We’re married and I love you so much!” You just know it’s the first in a long lifetime of amazing memories.
Do you have a favorite wedding tradition? We’d love to know!
