Note: the giveaway is now closed. Winners to be announced shortly.
Those of you following me on Twitter and Facebook know that I promised to reveal the title of my upcoming book today. I know many of you are eager to know who the hero is, and while the title won’t tell you who the book is about, it’ll give you a really good hint what the book is about.
One of the first things I’d told my editor when brainstorming ideas for this book was that I knew I didn’t want the heroine and hero to meet through work. All six of my previous books have my lead characters meeting, somehow, via a work connection, so with this next book, I wanted to do something different. What is that “something different” you ask? Well, maybe the title will give you a clue:
IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING
(Coming in April)
Big, huge, thanks to Elyssa Patrick for the title, which I love because it’s a play on one of my favorite classic romantic comedies, It Happened One Night. To celebrate the title reveal, I’m giving away two signed copies of my current release, Love Irresistibly. Which is appropriate–here comes another hint–since the hero in It Happened One Wedding appears in Love Irresistibly.
To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below. Two randomly-selected winners can choose between a signed paperback or a Kindle/Nook/Kobo ebook of Love Irresistibly. The giveaway is open internationally and will run until this Friday, June 28, at 9pm CST. Those of you reading this on Goodreads should click here to leave a comment at my blog.

It will be very very difficult to be as good as or better than “Love Irresistibly”. You, Nora Roberts and Jill Shalvis I read over and over again. Bet your partners appreciate your MINDS also. : )

Can’t wait to read it!
Can’t wait for the next book!!!! Love the title!
I cannot wait for this release! Making my way through the series has been difficult because they are in such high demand at the library.

Oooh! Can’t wait until April 2014! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
OMG!!! So freakin’ excited now! But I want to know who’s wedding?? Cade & Brooke’s? Although it seems more likely that it’s either Nick & Jordan or Kyle & Rylann. I don’t even care. Just want the next book already! April can’t come soon enough!
I LOVE the title, can’t wait to read it!!
What a great title! Next Spring is looking great 🙂
So excited! Now I’ll have to read it again, trying to figure out who the hero is.. 🙂
Your books are the best, and this one sounds just perfect

I’m going to guess Vaughn at Cade and Brooke’s wedding. Sad it won’t be out until April.
Awesome, a 2014 wedding I don’t have to buy a gift for!
So excited! Can’t waitto read it and I love the title! 😀
Sounds like it will be another great one!
i love your titles they really make me want to read what the story is about

Another great title from Julie James. I cannot wait.

Crossing my fingers that its Kyle and Rylann’s wedding.Of course if its Nick and Jordans then we’ll hear from hismom. She was funny. And Nick has 2 brothers. HMMMM. April cannot get here fast enough.
I am so excited, love your books. I think the hero might be FBI Agent Huxley or Vaughn, since you mentioned him. I’m leaning toward Huxley because I like his character and he seems mysterious.
I’m so excited for this book!! I absolutely love all of them so far, so I know this one will be just as fantastic.
Amazing news, always exciting to hear of new releases from one of my favourite authors. Love the title.
would love to win!! thanks for the chance!
I want one! 🙂
Yey! Another Julie James book to look forward to! I’m sure I’ll love this one as well.
How romantic! My husband’s parents met at a wedding, and Mamie is always telling us that they are a good hunting ground…
I think is Vaughn if its still gonna be in FBI series or maybe… Wilkins! Flashback to Jack and Cameron’s wedding!!!
Can’t wait! i so love your books as well as you Julie James! =)
Hope it is ford!!!
Would love to win this!! Thanks for the give a way.
Love the title and can’t wait for the book!
Can’t you set the clock ahead? I can’t wait for the new book
Meeting a new person at a wedding has always fascinated me.
It’s so hard finding out about these book and then having to wait in suspense. Wish I had a time machine!
ooh.. can’t wait! I’m sure it’s going to be amazing!
I love your books. I can’t wait to read It Happened One Wedding.
Yay!!! Another Julie James book to read!!! Can’t wait! Hmmm maybe it’s Wilkins???
You are one of my fav authors, love all your work and I CANNOT wait for April 2014 to come!
Oh I can’t wait for April 2014, not wishing winter but at least they’ll be something to warm us up in April.
i love your books and am psyched to hear that there’s a new one coming out!!! i would love to win also. thanx.
I love this series. Thanks for the chance to win.

Love it! I’d love to win! 🙂
Can’t wait to read it, Elyssa Patrick always have best title idea for book 🙂
My guess? Ford meets somebody at Brooke and Cade’s wedding. And I can’t wait.
*makes ‘It Happened One Wedding’ a countdown on phone*
I love your books and can’t wait for April to read It Happened One Wedding!
Love the title & props for trying out a new way for our characters to meet. So many possibilities for people meeting at a wedding where love & liquor abound!
I love your books. I would love to add an autograped book to my colloction.
Yay! Can’t wait. Hope it’s Vaughn’s book. Sounds like a player..
What a cute title, Julie..
Can’t wait for April 2014! Curious about the hero whom also appear on Love Irresistibly :))
Can’t wait! 🙂 Loved all your books so far
Interesting title, puns seem to be really really REALLY popular for book titles 🙂
yeeeey brooke and cades wedding?!!!! nice title! cant wait for the next book
I think it’s Nick and Jordan’s wedding because in LI it was mentioned that Nick was getting married the following month. So that would eliminate Ford as the hero because why would he be invited to N&J’s wedding? It could be Vaughn or it could be one of Nick’s brothers. IIRC, one was a cop (I think it was Matt) and he could move to Chicago to take over Nick’s condo (hint! hint!) and join the FBI as Nick did. I personally don’t think it’s either Sam or Huxley because to me they’re both “second bananas”, the guys you see in movies who complement the hero in some way and who sometimes provide the comic relief.
I can’t wait to see who’s getting married!!!
SO excited for the new book!! Can’t wait to see whose wedding it is!
So excited, can’t wait to read it. I am going to guess Vaughn is the hero and it’s Nick and Jordan’s wedding. Assuming the hero is an FBI agent, I can’t imagine he’d be invited to Kyle’s wedding (Nick being the exception since he’s family).
April is sooooo far…
I’m so excited for the next book!
I am so excited for this book! WOW The hero appears in Love Irresistibly? Wonder who it is.. even though I have an idea. I can’t wait to see who’s getting married! I have an idea for that one too ;] Waiting for april will be head-bonking-on-the-wall terrible but it doesn’t really matter because we’ll be getting a new book from the one and only Julie James!! Yeeey!! Also, you have inspired me and made me realize what I really want, and now I’m going to law school!! Hopefully I’ll become a succesful litigator like you :]
i think it might be either one of nick’s brothers at nick and jordon’s wedding or it’s huxley or wilkins. and do we really have to wait till next year.
I am wishing my life away waiting for your new releases 😉 Can’t wait. No matter who it is, I know it will be fabulous because you write fabulous 🙂
Oh Gooooooood! I loved the title, absolutely loved! And I’m really anxious to know who the hero is! Gooooooooood. How long will you keep us waiting?
I haven’t had the chance to read LI yet, so I’d love to win so I can guess about who the next hero will be, too!
Awesome, thanks for the giveaway!

I just read the latest book in your FBI/Attorney series and now I can’t wait for the next one! I had a feeling throughout reading Love Irresistibly that Vaughn would be in the next one, so I’m curious to see if he will be indeed. You have become one of my favourite authors and I’m sad that I’ve already read all of your books, haha.
Oh thank goodness for different time zones,I still have a chance!Cade is my alltime favourite hero! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us with It Happened One Wedding!

I love how all the characters are somehow connected to each other throughout the books. Looks like I have to go back and re-read Love Irresistibly for the clue. Cannot wait until the next book!
