In this contemporary romance, a socialite enlists her brother’s BFF to pose as her husband for the holidays, but their pretend love soon gets all too real.
Headstrong socialite Stefanie Ferguson is in hot water. She needs a fake husband to deflect a rumor that could wreck her family’s political ambitions. Desperate, she turns to the only available bachelor she knows, security specialist Emmett Keaton—who has to say yes to her proposal because he’s her brother’s best friend! They tie the temporary knot on Christmas Day . . .
The plan is to stay married only until the rumors have passed, but in the meantime . . . why not live a little? There’s an attraction between them neither can deny. There’s only one problem: Emmett’s oath to her brother that if she shows signs of being in love, Emmett will end things, and fast. As Stefanie falls harder for her show husband, the L word looms on her lips. Has the moment of reckoning arrived for this convenient Christmas marriage?
