SUBJECT: ENGAGEMENT CONTRACT (Marked Confidential)
FROM THE DESK OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE CHRISTOPHER
Emily—Thank you for joining me for dinner tonight. And for agreeing to my proposal, as ludicrous as it is. Desperate times call for fake engagements. At least in my family.
I am attaching the contract we discussed. Our lawyers asked that I highlight the following clauses:
- The engagement shall last ninety days
- Both parties are to appear genuinely in love at all royal appearances
- Beyond required public displays of affection, there shall be no contact of any kind between the parties
The first half of your payment will be deposited into your account upon the signing of this contract. Be sure to note your ring size. We would like to make prompt delivery of the family emerald. The Queen and I thank you in advance for your discretion.
P.S.—Sorry to hear about your divorce. Your ex sounds like a proper knob head.
P.P.S.—You looked stunning tonight.

This was my first read from Jessica Peterson and I really enjoyed it. What I thought may be a typical fake engagement read turned in to so much more.
It about Emily and Kit. Both are great characters, the book is told from both POV's which is great cause you really get to know the characters and their emotions whilst reading. I loved the plot, there were lots of twists and turns and even some angst thrown in. I loved the chemistry and the banter between Kit and Emily. I also loved that it was based in London. I can't wait for the next story in the series although this one can be read a standalone alone as it has the perfect ending. I'll also be checking out Jessica's other books. Overall a great read that I really enjoyed.
*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
Jessica Peterson began reading romance to escape the decidedly unromantic awkwardness of her teenage years. Having found solace in the likes of Mr. Darcy, Jamie Fraser (OMG love the gingers!), and Edward Cullen, it wasn’t long before she began creating tall, dark and handsome heroes of her own.
She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, Mr. Peterson, and her smelly Goldendoodle Martha Bean. She is the author of the super sexy STUDY ABROAD and FLINGS WITH KINGS series. Check her out at www.jessicapeterson.com
