Here it is! NOW available for preorder wherever ebooks are sold.
The second book in the City of Dreams series.
Lacey Reed jumps at the chance for independence with a career in the big city. But her naivety and ambition blind her to the lure of a blackmailer. With her savings gone, she has nowhere to turn when she literally runs into financier Connor Devlin.
Though dazzled by Lacey, Connor sees the desperation she tries to hide. His gut tells him to help, and he hires her as his fake fiancée. Now Lacey has a job, and Connor has put a bandage on a family crisis.
When the blackmailer ups the ante, Lacey resolves to face him down—no matter what the consequences. Does that mean Lacey will lose the only man who’s ever seen who she truly is?
A Model Engagement is the story of Lacey, Sabrina’s best friend from The Marriage Ultimatum.
Connor is a teddy bear of a guy with a weakness for rescues. Lacey might be a hot mess right now but she doesn’t want to be anybody’s pity project. She has to stand up for herself and get her life back as she would say, before she allows a man in her life.
The fun part about writing this story was that Lacey meets Connor at Sabrina and Vlad’s wedding.
So while this is a standalone story with its own happily ever after, the time frame overlaps somewhat with The Marriage Ultimatum. We get to check in and catch up with Sabrina and Vlad and little Alex. This story also introduces Jake Ricco, a navy buddy of Connor’s who does security work for Vlad. Jake is the hero of my third book in this series, An Illicit Affair.
