From the Author

To Have and to Hold is a must-read for anyone who's ever had a crush on Mr. Darcy. It features a disgraced wedding planner looking for a comeback, who finds herself falling hard for the quiet, brooding brother of her latest client. 

Reading a Lauren Layne novel is like spending an afternoon hanging out with your best friend eating pizza and watching Season 3 of Grey’s Anatomy.

Discovering her fiancé is an international con man just moments before they exchange vows devastates celebrity wedding planner Brooke Baldwin’s business—and breaks her heart. Now a pariah in Los Angeles, she seeks a fresh start in New York City and thinks she’s found it with her first bridal client, a sweet—if slightly spoiled—hotel heiress. Then she meets the uptight businessman who’s holding the purse strings.

Seth Tyler wishes he could write a blank check and be done with his sister Maya's fancy-pants wedding. Unfortunately, micromanaging the event is his only chance at proving Maya’s fiancé is a liar. Standing directly in his way is the stunning blonde wedding planner whose practiced smiles and sassy comebacks both irritate and arouse him. He needs Brooke’s help. But can he persuade a wedding planner on a comeback mission to unplan a wedding? And more importantly, how will he convince her that the wedding she should be planning…is theirs?




Seth leaned toward her slightly, his smile devilish. “Why, Ms. Baldwin. Have you been researching me?”

“I research all my clients,” she answered in a clipped voice.

His smile only widened. “What is it that you wanted to know?”

She didn’t look away. “What made you tick. What your angle was.”

“My angle?”

“That first day,” she said, not breaking his gaze. “You were so reserved and yet so forward. The contradiction was puzzling, and I wanted to know what you wanted.” 

“I think you know exactly what I wanted, Ms. Baldwin.” Very slowly, Seth’s hand extended toward her, his large finger gently touching her jaw. “What I still want. And perhaps more to the point . . . I think you want it, too.”
