I really loved this book and the whole series. I was very surprised at my reaction since I'm not into romances that much, but this series sucks you in. I finished each of the three books in less than 24 hours a piece.

From Publishers Weekly
In the first book of Phillips's trilogy (The Bachelor) about the irresistible marriage-resistant Chandler brothers of rural Yorkshire Falls, N.Y., footloose foreign correspondent Roman got hooked, thanks to the ingenious plotting of his matchmaking mama. This follow-up focuses on the middle brother, Rick, a loving but broken-hearted divorcee determined to resist both mom's marriage plots and those of his admirers-roughly every single woman in town. To do so, Rick employs a counterplot involving equally commitment-shy Kendall Sutton, whom the playboy policeman rescues from a car mishap as she's fleeing her own wedding. But will the independent twosome, feigning coupledom to remove themselves from the matchmaking game, foil themselves by genuinely falling for each other? Of course. In fact, there's little in the way of surprise or suspense herein. The characters express astonishment at certain plot turns, but readers won't, as all devious deeds are broadcast miles in advance. Still, the brothers' considerable charisma makes up for many sins of style and substance. Those who like their romances fast 'n' frothy may well find this lightweight tale an appealing afternoon's diversion.

Another fun romance from Carly Phillips. Can the footloose runaway bride find happiness in the arms of a hunky Chandler brother? Well, of course! ... But can she find anything a bit more permanent? That's a whole different question.

From back cover:
It takes a very special woman to catch a Chandler man... There isn't a woman in town who's immune to the legendary Chandler charm. Yet so far single cop Rick Chandler has managed to fend off the marriage-minded advances of Yorkshire Fall's entire female population. A past mistake has taught him never to put his heart on the line... until he answers the SOS of a real-life runaway bride.
In spite of her pearly gown and tiara, Kendall Sutton now vows to NEVER wed -- which makes her the ideal pretend lover who can ward off Rick's legion of admirers. When their passionate charade flames into the real thing, Rick is suddenly thinking about two words that spell forever after. But will Kendall ever say "I do"? Can a woman who's had it with weddings tie the know with the town's most popular playboy?

The 2nd book in a series (The Bachelor and The Heartbreaker) but doesn't have to be read in order. Kendall grows up shipped from home to home because her parents are too busy working overseas to care for their family. Consequently, she fears rejection and runs whenever she starts getting close to someone. Rick has been hurt by his ex-wife, who walked out on him to join the father of her baby. They both have to overcome their fear of relationships and learn to trust again.

This was a good read. Both Kendall and Rick seemed like fairly normal people and the chemistry between them was good.

He has avoided the women of the town who have done everything they can think of to get his attention, and this latest ploy by the woman he stops to help is the worst of all. A run-away bride! Right.
