What if Cinderella didn't want to go to the ball?

Wedding planner Paige Porter doesn't believe in fairy tales. She's seen too many bridezillas, randy grooms, and short-lived marriages. She's all business - even though it's her business to create the perfect fantasy.

But a new client drags her out of her comfort zone. Dealing with the wealthy and eccentric Maitland family becomes a full-time job, involving more than wedding planning. There's the bride-to-be, her siblings, and a set of nasty cousins with their own agendas. And then there's Siegfried, the heir apparent, boy genius, and one of the city's most eligible bachelors - if anyone could drag him away from his computer lab.

As CEO of The Maitland Company and the last in a long line of inventors, Siegfried might forget to eat or sleep, but he can't forget Paige Porter. He might have to put aside his all-consuming research for a new venture: Project Paige.

Because when he saw her he knew: It Had to Be You.

Deborah Simmons' first contemporary novel is a smart and fun romantic comedy.
