No strings attached to diamond rings...Divorce lawyer Vanessa Hill was content with always being the bridesmaid to her sister or her “insane” friends. She never wanted to be the bride. Marriage wasn’t for her. When her ailing grandmother invites Vanessa to discuss the terms of her will, Vanessa faces a dilemma, get married or lose everything. Under pressure, she invents an engagement with her neighbor and friend with benefits, Josiah. Josiah Thomas, a no-nonsense celebrity tattoo artist, has already been through the marriage thing. He was done with diamond rings until Vanessa propositioned him. He’d do anything for the sexy girl next door and a promised $2 million wouldn’t hurt. Now Vanessa and Josiah will be doing the one thing they swore they would stay away from, marriage. When hearts collide in lies, they just might belong together.

The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride invites listeners to join author Katrina Majkut on a personal and powerful prenuptial journey. With fearless curiosity and fun feminism, the book asks such questions as: Why do brides need their parents’ permission to marry? Why don’t men wear engagement rings? And why do women change their surname? With cheeky insights into the origins of Western wedding traditions (like how the wedding cake is not just dessert but a sexy fertility talisman), Majkut uncovers eye-opening truths about how social traditions impact people’s lives. Listeners will learn how to modernize outdated traditions that support the wage gap, street harassment, sex and gender discrimination, and that limit reproductive rights. More than a wedding planning book, The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride is an invigorating and heartening guide to inspire a new generation of fiancés to walk down the aisle as equals. 1.
