A Model Engagement

City of Dreams, Book 2

The Financier’s Fake Fiancee is Book 2 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?

Admit it, we want to see two souls come together against all odds. We want both the damsel and the knight come to each other’s rescue and Ms. O’Shay has done it.


The subject matter could not be more timely and the female characters could not be more self-possessed, yet this story is so convincingly told in a setting filled with lush romance and hot, hot, hot encounters that keep the reader turning the pages till the end..


The absolute best part of this book was seeing Lacey transform herself from a victim to a survivor… What was even better was that she came to the decision completely on her own. …The ending was so freakin’ adorable though! After how quick their relationship started I really appreciated the patience Connor employed to go at Lacey’s own pace.


Romance paired expertly with suspense, A Model Engagement brings more to the table than a typical contemporary romance…antagonist is realistic, complex and well written.
