     The proposal is fake, but the feelings are real. 
    June Green is heartbroken when her boyfriend gets engaged to another woman mere weeks after their breakup. She says a little too much to the dad of the two adorable children she nannies, and he decides to help her save face... by faking a proposal in front of her ex. She's always been quite fond of Roland, and can't pretend he's not attractive, but pretending to date your employer seems like a risky plan.
    Successful businessman and young widower Roland Kirk should know better than to get mixed up with his children's (inconveniently attractive) nanny. But when June's cruel ex starts baiting her right in front of him, he can't help himself—he not only claims he and June are an item, but stages a full romantic proposal. June goes along with it, and he's sure it's only to get back at the guy, but when their faked moment leads to a very real date and an unexpected, spine-tingling kiss, things get even more complicated.
    With the risk of messing up his kids' one good relationship, the stakes are high. But neither one of them can ignore the intensity of their attraction...

    In “a delectable and rewarding read,” a marriage of convenience turns to love in this Regency romance from a New York Times–bestselling author (Library Journal, starred review). 
     
    When Edwin Barlow, the Earl of Blakeborough, agrees to help his best friend’s impetuous ward, Lady Clarissa Lindsey, in her time of need, he knows he’s in for trouble. He’s been hunting for someone to wed, and she’ll just get in the way. Although captivated by the witty, free-spirited beauty, he fears she’d be all wrong as a wife . . . if she would even take such a gruff cynic for her husband. Yet he wants nothing more than to have her for his own. 
     
    Clarissa has no intention of marrying anyone—not Edwin, whom she’s sure would be an overbearing husband, and certainly not the powerful French diplomat stalking her. But when matters escalate with the diplomat, she chooses Edwin’s gallant offer of a marriage between friends in hopes that it will deter her stalker. She expects nothing more than an amiable union, but their increasingly tempestuous kisses prove more than she bargained for. When her stalker’s vow to expose the lovers’ deepest secrets threatens to destroy their blossoming attraction, will their tenuous bond withstand public ruin, or will Edwin lose all that’s important to him to protect his bride?
