Her innocence—exposed!

As London’s top relationship columnist, Abby Hart can’t tell anyone her biggest secret: not only is her perfect fiancé entirely fictional, she is also utterly untouched. Invited to attend a prestigious charity ball with her “husband-to-be,” she throws herself upon the mercy of brooding millionaire Luke Shelverton.

After his own engagement ended tragically, Luke is reluctant to take credit for Abby’s diamond ring. To protect her reputation, he agrees to a convenient arrangement. Except Abby’s effervescence kindles a fire he’s tempted to indulge… And uncovering her innocence compels Luke to initiate his temporary fiancée into all the sinful delights of the bridal bed!

 

A favor for a friend turns into much more in Melanie Milburne’s latest Harlequin Presents! I enjoyed discovering the sweet connection between the characters who had been friendly from afar for years. Seeing them admit to their pasts and connect over what they were starting to feel for each other was a turning point in the plot of the book. I felt like the ending was rushed, but overall it was a solid read and very enjoyable!

Abby Hart is desperate! If she doesn’t find a date to take along as her so-called-fiancee “Mr. Perfect”, she can kiss her job as an advice columnist goodbye! She’s been invited to the ball of the year who only the most prestigious get invited to, so there’s no turning this down … but who will agree to be madly in love with her, just for the night?

Luke Shelverton says no way when his little sister’s best friend comes sweet talking him with his favorite baked goods asking for a favor. He wants no part of going to a high society event and pretending to be her fiancee … but he lets her tale of woe get to him and agrees to do her this favor … begrudgingly! How is he to know that spending a little time with Abby is all that it takes to have her under his skin and in his mind all the time.
