Summary

From the glittering mansions of the Astors and the Vanderbilts to the gas-lit streets of New York, this passionate novel by award-winning author Meagan McKinney brings together a desperate woman and a handsome stranger who could expose her scandalous secret  New York heiress Alana Van Alen has everything—beauty, wealth, and status. But she is living a lie. To protect her sister, she plays society’s game and attends dazzling balls and soirees—until a cunningly orchestrated act of revenge leaves her penniless and at the mercy of one of the city’s most notorious gentlemen. Dubbed the Predator of Wall Street, Trevor Sheridan rose from abject poverty in Ireland to the pinnacle of power in Manhattan. Yet he’s still shunned by the city’s elite Four Hundred. Now he has parlayed his hunger for revenge into a scheme to destroy the rich and powerful. In the final phase of his plan, he will marry the pedigreed Alana Van Alen to gain the acceptance that has been denied to him for so long. But along the way, he makes a fatal misstep: He falls in love with her. The romantic saga of the Van Alen sisters continues with Christal Van Alen’s story in Fair Is the Rose.

     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...

    The vows were fake, but the feelings are real.
     
    "If we're still single at forty, we'll marry each other."
     
    To most friends it's a joke rather than a promise, but not for former high school sweethearts Rachel and Daniel, who run into each other on a plane to Vegas 20 years later. They bond over their unlucky history in love, and after a night of bad decisions and a trip to the drive-through altar, they end up married.
     
    In the moment, it seems perfect: Rachel has always wanted a family of her own; Daniel is nursing a broken heart after his ex-fiancée called off their wedding at the last minute. But when they wake up the next morning a little less starry eyed, they might just regret their hasty I do's.
     
    The clear thing to do is annul the marriage. Except... posing just seems to fit them. And they may just find that the best love stories happen out of order.
