Sissy Calhoun attends her brother’s wedding believing her previous 10 years of solitary life as an author was exactly what she wanted. But when she locks eyes with Marshall Walker, she struggles to resist his charm and beautiful, brown eyes.

In Sally M. Russell’s new romance novel “Magic in the Bride’s Bouquet” (published by AuthorHouse), Marshall attempts to persuade the reluctant Sissy to take a chance on love.

Marshall is a young widower and Sissy’s brother’s former law partner. Sissy is a woman who thought her life as a reclusive writer was enough to fill all her voids. When they cross paths, Marshall and Sissy must let go of their pasts and learn to love again.

Russell hopes her new book will inspire readers young and old to take chances on new relationships. She says “love is worth living for,” and wants regular readers of romance novels to be captivated by the universally appealing love story found within “Magic in the Bride’s Bouquet.”

An excerpt from “Magic in the Bride’s Bouquet”:

“‘I’m sorry, Sissy, if I took you by surprise, but I’ve made up my mind that I’d like you to be my wife, so I want you to like it here. You’ve already told me that you like my cottage, when you went to see it with me on Thanksgiving, so now you just need to try to learn to like me. Don’t you think you could do that?’
‘Marshall, you are totally insane. No, I cannot do that because I don’t ever want a relationship with another man, and I’m very happy with my life as it is. I think we’d better just say goodnight – it’s been a long day.’”
