Tansy’s greatest love is her family’s bookstore.
But when it comes to actual romance, she can’t get past the first chapter. Tired of questions about her love life, she invents a fake girlfriend, inspired by the stunning cover model on a bestselling book. But when the real-life Gemma crosses Tansy’s path, her white lie nearly implodes.
Gemma is a wild child, the outcast of her wealthy family, and now the latest heir to Van Dalen Publishing. But the title comes with one tiny condition: she must be married in order to inherit. When Gemma discovers a beautiful stranger has been pretending to date her for months, she decides to take the charade one step further – and announces their engagement.
But as Tansy and Gemma play the role of affectionate fiancees, unexpected sparks start to fly and suddenly the line between convenient arrangement and real feelings begins to blur . . .
But the scheming Van Dalen family won’t give up the company without a fight, and Gemma and Tansy’s newfound happiness might just get caught in the fallout.
