A Victorian lady’s marriage of convenience to a strict stranger…
When her wastrel Earl of a father gambles away her hand in marriage, the beautiful Lady Henrietta claims she’s already secretly wed to the handsome vicar who arrived in the county just that day. To protect the lady’s reputation, Alfred Conley backs up the story in public― but he exacts his price in private. Any wife of his must be subject to domestic discipline, and he does not tolerate lies.
Especially those lies that encumber him with a surprise bride still being claimed by a powerful enemy.
When Phaedra was hired for a corporate photoshoot at the hottest law firm in the city, she jumped at the chance. Finding love was not in her plans.
When Logan discovered that only family men made partner at his firm, he thought his dream would be lost forever. Until he met a sexy photographer who might make the perfect fake fiancé for the upcoming office party.
Phaedra and Logan have chemistry that is impossible to ignore, but this was just a business arrangement. Right?
Can this staged romance turn into true love? Or, will their demanding careers stand in the way?
It’s just pretend… but this lie is starting to feel so real.
I’m a girl from Amish country.
That means I was supposed to be seen and not heard.
But I’m a bad b!tch, and I left that life for good.
Now I own my own company and I call the shots.
I’ll never get married and be some man’s obedient little wifey.
But my parents are in town to make amends, and this one teensy little lie will ease the tension.
A fake boyfriend. One night only!
After all, it’s only pretend.
I don’t trust anyone. That’s not how I built my billion-dollar fortune.
And I don’t date. Casual encounters only–with a fake name.
But when Sarah walks into my life, it feels different.
My first mistake is agreeing to her little ploy.
Fool her parents once, and then her friends, and we’re falling in bed together,
And she’s screaming my name.
I want to hear my real name on her succulent lips.
This whole fake boyfriend thing has gotten out of control.
We’re caught together in a web of lies–
Lies that are so much sweeter than any bank account balance.
I’m tempted to give up everything to get a ring on her finger,
To show her just how much I want her — for real.
