From USA TODAY bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly comes WAKING UP MARRIED, a free book in Harlequin's brand-new contemporary romance collection—Harlequin KISS. Her first thought: "Who are you?" It's the morning after her cousin's bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she's in a stranger's penthouse having woken up with something else as well—a funny, arrogant, sexy…husband! Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible—been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with Carter…no, Connor Reed and she's gone from first meet to marriage in one night! Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor's shocking bombshell? "I don't want a divorce."

Review: Kiss is the new imprint from Harlequin starting in February of 2013. As I was reading, I was trying to figure out where this book fits in the grand scheme of things. I'm thinking somewhere between Presents and Blaze.

I love Harlequin romances. They are like candy, probably bad for you, but oh so good.

Waking Up Married follows one of the stranger overused plots, the quicky drunken Vegas wedding.

So it starts off, right away, being not so realistic, but as a lover of romance, I don't really care.

It is a cute read, and the characters are just as you'd expect them to be, but somehow, they didn't quite work for me. Connor's decision to keep up with the marriage, even as Megan, rationally says they should get a divorce doesn't make sense.

For a man that doesn't believe in love, I have to say, the man doth protest too much.

The beginning of the story is a bit confusing too, as they go back and forth between the present and the hours leading up to Megan and Connor marrying.

Still, I found I liked Megan and Connor, even though their story was off the wall. I definitely want to see what else the Kiss line is going to offer.
