As little girls MacKensie, Emma, Laurel, and Parker spent hours acting out their perfect make believe “I do” moments. Years later their fantasies become reality when they start their own wedding planning company to make every woman’s dream day come true. With perfect flowers, delicious desserts, and joyful moments captured on film, Nora Roberts’s Bride Quartet shares each woman’s emotionally magical journey to romance.

In Bed of Roses, florist Emma Grant is finding career success with her friends at Vows wedding planning company, and her love life appears to be thriving. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn’t found Mr. Right. And the last place she’s looking is right under her nose.

But that’s just where Jack Cooke is. He’s so close to the women of Vows that he’s practically family, but the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. When Emma returns his passion—kiss for blistering kiss—they must trust in their history…and in their hearts.


Oh how I love Nora Roberts! This book was just such a refreshing read and very easy. I was looking for a break from the normal and wanted a book that would take me away into a fantasy land. This is exactly what Bed of Roses did for me.

I loved the dynamics that the characters had. Not just with Emma and Jack but all the secondary characters as well. They were clearly a family that worked well together.

Jack and Emma seemed like the perfect relationship. Until emotions and fears got in the way. I loved how Emma's fears were like every other woman's when it comes to friendship and relationships. How they so easily can consume you and can take you on tangents. The way Jack responded to her fears was classic male. I loved seeing how the two of them work through their internal struggles.

This book was a breath of fresh air in my chaotic life. I wish that all the romance books I read were as easy and delightful as this one.
