Nick Katsalos has a foolproof plan to save his parents' floundering wedding venue. The last thing he expects is for Erin O'Malley, the captivating daughter of his parents' biggest rival, to waltz in and charm the client who could finally get the family business back on track. Nick would be furious--if only he could stop thinking about her. When Erin and Nick enter into a wager to determine who will win the contract she prepares for the worst...and is surprised by the glimpses of warmth she sees in the man behind the numbers. But Erin isn't about to forfeit what could be the biggest wedding of the decade to a man as cold as Nick. Especially since securing it means she could finally prove to her father she's just as capable of handling the family business as him. But as the competition heats up, Erin and Nick must decide what's more important-winning or love.

The Wedding Wager is a sweet romance that has a Romeo and Juliet feel. The Katsalos’ and the O’Malley’s both have wedding businesses and are after the same client. The daughter of a congressman is trying to decide where to have her wedding ceremony which leads Erin O’Malley to make a wager with Nick Katsalos.
Erin wants to prove to her dad that she can run the family business. Nick is just trying to help his family out. Will these two always be enemies or can they work out their differences?
I enjoyed this story and thought it was a cute light romance. I loved that there were no games being played and the enemies-to-lovers feel was perfect.
Interview with Barbara DeLeo

It’s wonderful to be at The Crafty Engineer today to answer your questions.

How did you decide which genre(s) you wanted to write? 

I started writing when my first set of twins was born (Yep, I ended up with two sets J ) We’d just moved towns and I knew no one, had no family around, so was pretty housebound. I could only write at night then as there always seemed to be one baby up during the day. I’ve always loved to read romance and I found the category length books ideal to read when my kids were tiny. The satisfaction of finishing a story was great. (The fact that most romances didn’t have kids in them was a great break too!)

What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

If you sat me down with a glass of bubbles with my best girlfriends to watch an awesome rom-com, you’d pretty much have sent me to my nirvana.

 What inspired you to write The Wedding Wager? 

My husband is Greek and we’ve lived in Greece and Cyprus so I have a huge love for everything about the culture and the people. When I combined that with my love of weddings, the Katsalosfamily from Westchester County were born.

In the first book, The Bouquet List, Mano has returned to Greece to try and get his wife Pia to come home and his daughter Yasmin is in charge. Now it’s older brother Nick’s turn and he’s managed to gamble the family’s whole future.

 What’s up next for you? 

Ari’s story, the third in the Westchester series is next. As a PI who specializes in cheating spouses he’s probably not a natural fit as the final hope for the Katsalos family to save the Aegean Palace…


About Barbara DeLeo

Barbara DeLeo’s first book, co-written with her best friend, was a story about beauty queens in space. She was eleven, and the sole, handwritten copy was lost years ago, much to everyone’s relief. It’s some small miracle that she kept the faith and is now living her dream of writing sparkling contemporary romance with unforgettable characters.

After completing degrees in Psychology and English then travelling the world, Barbara married her winemaker hero and had two sets of twins.

She still loves telling stories about finding love in all the wrong places, with not a beauty queen or spaceship in sight.
