Then Came Love is book #9 in The Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls series of romances.
This is the story of wedding dress designer Jax Braden and how he falls for bride-to-be Jordan when she walks into his office for a wedding gown consultation. She’s forbidden to him for too many reasons but he can’t get her out of his head.

Jordan postpones her wedding once more after meeting Jax, she can’t believe the feelings she had for him, but she’s engaged to Todd, the man who stood by her when a family tragedy struck. Eight months later Jordan meets Jax again at the wedding of her friend and the sparks between them still exist. Neither of them are cheaters, so can they remain just friends?

With the underlying theme of a search for a lost sibling, this romance puts temptation in the way for Jax and Jordan. I am so glad that they remained true, didn’t cheat and got their happy-ever-after. There’s a great ending and I look forward to reading the next books in the series.
